Sports Retorts with Hooli and The Joe: Episode Archive

Friday, October 27th, 2017

MB and the boys are back in town for a "Season 2" premiere that will catch you up on every single thing that happened in sports since episode 40. Once that's out of the way, things get frightening[ly fun and informative] as Hooli goes Trick-or-Treating across the NBA, The Joe unmasks a horror film villain for each NFL franchise, and MB describes the costumes some Astros and Dodgers will be donning during the series. It's all scarier than your battered fantasy football lineup!

Hooli, The Joe, and MBS took a Guaranteed Rate Field trip to record an episode live at a Chicago White Sox vs. Houston Astros game. They talk the good, bad, and ugly news in the NBA (and WNBA), cut loose on Cutler to the Phins, and unpack the MLB trade deadline for the two teams in their presence and beyond. Spoilers for Wednesday August 9th's Sox/Stros game.

MB tries not to kill the boys as they struggle to name MLB All-Stars, then they step outside of Chicago's rough draft season to examine which other cities have had historically bad draft years across all of their franchises. Politics takes the spotlight in the end as Russia gets one over on America...again.

After the Warriors walk away with the 2017 NBA title, the boys try to figure out who is the greatest basketball team in history. MB serenades us out of an NHL season. All that and an investment opportunity you will not want to miss!

Hooli has said for years that the NBA is always fixed.  Does he have proof this time?  MB breaks down the MLB season a quarter of the way through, and The Joe Browns-noses the NFL Draft.  All that and an Instagram post!

With UNC's big win in the NCAA Tournament, it's clear there's something in the water in the Carolinas. Also, the Raiders are on the move to Sin City, and we drafted a fantasy baseball team!  And have you seen Ronaldo's new statue??

Does length matter?  MB and The Joe go head-to-head on whether the baseball season is too long (no surprises on who falls where).  We then take a bird's-eye view of the Flat Earth Society, and finish it out with a new 2 Minute Drill.

It's MB's favorite time of year again: players have started heading to AZ and FL for spring training. She drops everything you need to know about pitchers and catchers around the league for the upcoming season*, and the boys totally help. Hooli talks about the NBA trade deadline. The Joe thinks the earth is flat** #Kyrie.

*Except the horrible David Price news that dropped post-recording.
**He doesnt, but if he cared about Kyrie he would.​

Hooli offers a heartfelt apology for having an "inappropriate relationship with a tweet" during Super Bowl LI; we plug some players (and owners (and mascots!)) into the NBA Trade Machine; and we talk about all of the amazing comebacks (aka chokejobs) we've seen in sports this past year!

After an extended winter break we are back! The gents slam the fans for denying Westbrook a starting spot in the NBA All-Star game, provide 3/4ths of a Super Bowl preview (considering how much Brady played this season), and finally answer the question... is Rodgers a top 3 QB of all time!?!?  All that and a very timely Ronda Rousey joke!
