I’ve been keeping up with them, more or less, and this is the best of the recent bunch. They’re very funny. I especially liked the way The Bomb killed them. Been there, it’s not great.
I’m in the bag for Matt Damon and this is a fun interview. It was set up to talk about Rounders (a movie I enjoy very much) but he also spends time talking about his contemporaries and how they came up in the 90’s
Good times and a couple of chuckles while we talk about some shows and podcasts we’ve been enjoying and then Mike closes us out with a Public Service Announcement.

I also enjoy the music from Titanic as an overlay.
This NYT profile on Gary, Keith, and Ron is a fun read on the Mets’ television broadcast team. The Mets’ win/loss record has been bad but I like watching baseball and these guys have helped soften the blow(s).
It figures that they tank it hard in the season I spring for the MLB package to watch them. And, like it says in the article, the Mets have been just good enough down the stretch that I’ll sign up again for next season.
European soccer has a lot of tournaments, but the big one is the Champions League. Liverpool played in the final last year and it was very exciting. The new Champions League season started this week and this stoppage-time goal from Bobby Firminho was a tremendous capper to a great match.
I’ve talked before about my classic rock thing and I’ve been revisiting that playlist often. What still blows my mind is that these were all young people making the music because I had only ever really seen them as old people. This video of The Marshall Tucker Band is great and I still love this song.
