The Bums have an acute case of Low-E during Episode 0039 (they can’t all be gems); talk eventually turns to NFL Week 9 and the dumpster fire that was MNF (Bears vs. Stealers/refs), the silver lining of Justin Time’s progression, AARon “The Liar and Douchebag” Rodgers is flayed in the rail yard for gross negligence, while Jordan “No” Love makes his NFL debut; the Las Vegas Raiders are running out of degenerate criminals (or are they?), Odell escapes Cleveland; Cam is back in Charlotte for his swan song; Paddy heads to Ann Arbor, MI for a field trip to the Big House (travelogue); before the first half closes with a goofy-ass ESPN story about a dude who finds 164 bowling balls buried under his front porch.
The second half ensues with yet another beer review, this time at the hands of Chicago’s Lake Effect Brewing Co. and a mash-up with the Irish-American Heritage Center, to create a rock-solid Red Ale named after IAHC’s public house bar— “Fifth Providence” (4.8% ABV); the Bums throw low-energy and sadness at the devastating loss of life in Houston following Travis Scott’s AstroWorld concert and the tragedy that followed; Episode 0039 mercifully comes to an end after talk turns to streaming TV series reviews of ShowTime’s “American Rust” (starring Jeff Daniels & Maura Tierney) and HBO’s “100 Foot Wave” (featuring big wave rider Garrett McNamara). Happy Armistice / Veterans Day! Hug a Vet!
