The Bums kick-off the top of Episode 0054 with a head nod to our unofficial Holiday that is April 20th, before diving into sports chatter; citizen funding of Buffalo Bills stadium is bemoaned — a cautionary tale for the Chicago Bears and the McCaskey family; while on his death bed, former Chicago Bear and Super Bowl Champion Steve “Mongo” McMichael gets a visit from the Punky QB; Jimmy Mac has a new Netflix documentary in the works; coach Jay Wright hangs up his grease board sooner than expected; Paddy drops a jaw dropping IDKNT segment on the topic of NCAA Coaching; and Eddie discusses one of the unwritten rules of MLB.
For the bottom half of E0054, the Bums navigate another world famous beer review — as Chicago’s very own Old Irving Brewing (OIB) drops a new Dry Hop Lager called “Oni” (ABV 5.9%), which is chock full of Citra and Amarillo hops; Rocky reviews his birthday extravaganza with reviews of two kick-ass establishments - Club Lucky and Avondale Tap in Chicago; Eddie gifts Rocky a 180 gram vinyl masterpiece at the hands of All Rock staple —Soundgarden; Camp Lucy gets put in the stable for the summer; the Bums reflect on couch wars current and past; the Laker’s new docuseries comes under fire at the hands of an NBA basketball God; and Eddie reviews a new documentary called ’Summer of Soul’ (circa. 1969). All of this and a shitload more!!
Recorded on April 21st, 2022 at B.O.M.’s global headquarters, the Eagle’s Nest, in Chicago, IL USA.
