Another week, another set of sports stories poorly analyzed by Casey and Aaron. We recorded before the Howie Kendrick trade, but we were able to talk about Nelson Cruz, John Jaso, Jon Lester, the comparative attractiveness of Max Scherzer and James Shields, the Oakland A’s moves, and Melky Cabrera. We also took some time to talk about how Aaron’s favorite football team, the Tampa Bay Bucs and their potential to get the opportunity to draft Marcus Mariota, and as the title promises, we found a loose and irresponsibly inaccurate link between Johnny Manziel and Adolf Hitler.
Alex Akita came down to our dining room studios and talked about a lot of things, many of which aren’t embodied by this podcast’s title. We talked about the Mariners, baseball in general, the NFL, the 12th Man, the Washington Huskies, and sprinkled in some talk about being a celebrity on Twitter.
This week Aaron and Casey talk about Corey Kluber and the perception that Felix Hernandez got snubbed, the validity of Lord of the Rings as a good movie, “The ‘Pen” at Safeco Field, and ESPN’s blatant ripoff of Daniel Tosh, among other things.
Aaron and Casey introduce Offspeed Podcast, a podcast mostly about sports, and occasionally about even dumber things. This episode talks less about sports than will be normally talked about, but does include some opinions on Kyle Seager winning the Gold Glove, MLB’s postseason awards, and professional wrestling.
