Eddy Money

The Bears are 1-1 after Eddy Dinero knocked down a 53 yarder to beat the Broncos. This is the 2nd installment of our Bears Recap show and honestly we're surprised we're alive for it. What a game. What a finish. This episode we break the game down inside out then look ahead to the Redskins next Monday. Thanks to Miller Lite and Eddy Dinero for an All Gas No Brakes week 2 finish.


Behind The Bears With Dan Pompei

The boys are back from NYC and happy to report no one died. We break down our trip before Carl gets hot about how much the Cubs suck right now. Dave and Carl trade rebuild pitchers before welcoming Dan Pompei, senior NFL writer from The Atheltic to talk all things Bears including a deep dive on the Denver Broncos matchup. After, we got some more Bears because there's no such thing as Too Much Bears and then we give out some beefs before White Sox Dave's first grabbag. It's an all gas no...

Brandon Walker then joins before going deep on more shitty baseball rebuild players. It's an AGNB kind of week around here and we wouldn't...

The boys recap the chaos then turn it over to a brief yet insightful interview with future Hall of Famer Kris Bryant. It remains to be seen if the Cubs fire KB for coming on our show much like they did to LigmaBallSack. In and around that, we get an update on the Humboldt Park Gator and a bunch of other...
