85 Episodes, two ACL's, and one quarantine later, we've ran out of ideas. Not really, but we didn't feel like tackling a single topic today, so Bacon, Matt and Nick hopped in to Studio Jamesia, while Jon ran controls from his production van live via satellite. Things just kept rolling on. Check it out. (Pardon the audio. We're working out some in-house kinks.)

The smokescreen is over. We are here for the NFL Draft live this Thursday and Nick is joined by two seasoned arm chair scouts in Erik Hammer and Tim Jennings. We break down each pick as Erik and Tim provide their choices for the upcoming draft. It deviates pretty quickly with the selections but OH MAN we get some synergy at some opportune moments. Join us as we discuss Jacksonville and Trevor Lawrence's potential downfall, the Patriots sneakily moving around the draft and which QB the Packers will take in the first round. Tim and Erik have a wealth of knowledge that you'd look for when you preview the draft coming up this Thursday.

The biggest show of the year... This time, with fans! Mania is back in full force, and so was Matthew James-ia. We partied, we laughed, we cried, but mostly partied. We were going to do a morning review show but nobody woke up in time, so here is our review, in podcast form.
Night 1. Night 2. Ups. Downs. Bacon and Nick fight over Roman Reigns. Its fantastic.
We have a new intro as well! Let us know if it you hate it.
Three dollars to watch the s***show unfold!
