Jamie and Matt must’ve taken their Ritalin today, as they actual stay more or less on-task, assuming that the task includes talking about Game of Thrones (including speculative SPOILERS) and Avengers: Endgame in addition to Washington’s surprisingly successful first round of the NFL Draft.
Jamie and Matt provide their traditional level of deep football analysis on the upcoming NFL Draft, which is to say that they mostly seem aware that football players are a thing that exists. Also discussed: JP Finlay, the constant encroachment of geek culture, more JP Finlay, and a hypothetical upcoming future episode of this very podcast.
Jaime and Matt hold another EMERGENCY pod to catch up on stuff that happened, like, weeks ago. Hey, they’re busy guys. Life gets in the way. You pay for what you get with this thing. Also, soothing background rain noises!
In which Jamie and Matt touch on a variety of D.C. sports topics and find very little to look forward to in that world. Also discussed: Disney trips with older kids, the emotional toll of Pixar movies, minor league football, and more.
Like the end of Rogue One, Jamie and Matt attempt to extract a vague promise of hope out of this hallway massacre of a season. Like the end of the making of Rogue One, that hope proves to be pretty tenuous and based almost entirely on special effects and self-delusion.
Matt and Jamie get together for the most perfunctory postgame conversation ever recorded. This content is snack-sized and can be listened to in its entirety during halftime of a Christmas Day NBA game.
Matt is miserable about a 16-13 win, while Jamie still has joy in his heart and light in his eyes. It’s like a Hallmark Channel holiday movie, except that Matt stays grouchy right through till the very end.
Jamie and Matt yet again get a little punchy this week. Rather than breaking down the latest stupid game, they spend most of the time talking about who to fire, when to fire them, what former players should replace those people, and if anything will ever improve ever. It is more cheerful than all of that sounds.
Jamie and Matt get punchy over a win, read Tress Way’s Wikipedia page, study tweets about Dean Blandino, and try to come to terms with a world in which the Redskins are still in first place in the NFC East.
The audio itself sounds cleaner this week, but technical difficulties do still plague the recording. Meanwhile, Jamie is enthused about the win while Matt is inexplicably cranky about a game he barely watched.
