After a two-week hiatus (and after eclipsing 1,000 downloads), the Bums return to the rail yard with Episode 0051. The upper half starts with March Madness hijinks and look-backs in preparation for Final Four showdowns; Duke-UNC face-off for the first time in tourney history; Eddie plans a Final Four viewing “bumstravaganza” before talk turns to offseason NFL football; Tom “Benjamin Button” Brady returns to Tampa Bay just-in-time to hand Bruce Arians a gold watch; QBs are on the move — the Browns bring in shitbag DeShaun Watson while Denver plugs in a missing piece in the form of Russell Wilson; Rocky takes inventory of the Chicago Bears offseason FA moves with a walk of talent on the Offensive side of the ball; and end with discussion around former Chicago MLBers shuffling around the league.
The lower half kicks off with a hat-tip to Eddie and (the East Bunker recording studio) as the Bums wrap Q1 and plan to move west to Rocky’s Eagle’s Nest studio for Q2; while another world famous beer review ensues from Trillium Brewing (thanks McD), raising eyebrows and blood alcohol levels with ‘Mettle’, a delicious Double IPA (8.4% ABV) ass-kicker; the end of Daylight Savings Time is chopped up; Paddy takes the City of Angles by storm, and Rocky catches steelheads (and a wicked cold) in Baldwin, MI; meanwhile Eddie makes his first visit to Chicago’s “Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab” experience; as talk turns to entertainment and Jeff Foxworthy’s joke thievery —before the Bums end with slapstick chatter around Will Smith’s Oscar gaff, coming at the cheek of Chris Rock. All of this and more!
Recorded on March 31st, 2022 at B.O.M.’s global headquarters ‘East Bunker’ in Chicago, IL USA.
