Episode 0042 PT1 kicks into high gear, as the Bums celebrate their 800th download from BumNation; Rocky gets his booster shot; the Bums dive headlong into NFL pre-playoff goings-on; GOAT head coach Bill Belichick paints another masterpiece on MNF with a big win against the Bills Mafia on the shoulders of New England’s running game with only 3 pass attempts through the entire game; Pittsburgh Steelers look ‘turrible’ in all 3 phases; NCAA QB Kenny Pickett’s “fake slide” closes a loop-hole with a fast-following, new rule; the Detroit Lions defy all logic by barely winning their first game; coaching seats get warm-to-hot; the Bums bid adieu to recently retired Denver Bronco great, Demarius Thomas, beloved WR who passed away unexpectedly (and WAY too young); why Chicago Bears leadership has sucked for decades (do you remember Jim Finks?); Coach Ditka’s ears are (rightlfully) ringing; before chitter-chatter slides into MLB and Hall of Fame ballots including the long list of cheaters.
PT2 kicks off with a definition of “Zip it Up Day”; followed by a double-barreled Scumbag-of-the-Week segment, as co-winners Jussie Smollett (guilty of being a selfish douchebag among other charges) and Josh Duggar (reality TV personality guilty on multiple child porn charges.. maybe the 19th kid was too much); another killer beer review courtesy of a New Holland Brewing’s “Dragon’s Milk”, an oak barrel aged stout (ABV 10.2%); Rocky gets some new ink —albeit without being in the right frame of mind; before the Bums close with a fire-side chat around Eddie’s recent trip to retail grocery, Mariano’s (doggie downer).
