We are now entering a creative Renascence, as I like to call it, in terms of our episode titles. You know, people tell me all the time “Jay, stop creating! You’re part of the zeitgeist that makes expression tantamount to the world on a metaphysical level” and my response is always: “wha?”. That being said, we’ve got the NFL Draft to talk about, and so naturally, we do! Matt and Zach arrived a bit tardy, so Tehol and I wax poetic about Marshawn Lynch’s return to the NFL and wonder if the AFC West has the potential to be the best division in football next season. Then the draft talk begins, and we close on a few notes on what we have planned for the preseason and some shows we’ll be watching and discussing in the mean time. And we also talk about Zach being either Jewish or Amish. For some reason. Blame Tehol. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you thought our production value couldn’t get any worse, you’re sorta right. As with everything on the site, the blame probably lies at Zach’s feet, but since he’s the young one, we’ll just go ahead and blame Tehol. In our newest episode (it’s been a while, we know), Zach, Matt Bowe, and Tehol play the part of GM and take turns selecting players in a mock draft that will probably not even end up being close to what happens when all is said and done. But that’s okay! We’re here to have fun, make static noises, and to listen Tehol try to talk and drive at the same time. For probably the 10 episode in a row. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yeah, this time it’s Tehol’s fault I veered into the political realm, but the good news is, we don’t spend too much time addressing the elephant in the room, aka Rome burning, but we did have a plethora of NFL news to talk about, including the story that broke during the recording sesh, which was Brandin Cooks being traded to the Patriots. The Brock Osweiler trade to the Browns, along with Alshon Jeffery, Kirk Cousins, and Danny Woodhead are all bantered about with Zach, Matt Bowe, and Tehol. Along with a story from Zach about how Tehol stalks him with an auto-tuned rapper. Or something. I already forgot his name, but he dresses like Prince, but without the immense talent to project sex appeal in such garments. And we finally talk about the OA finale and start the hype train on Game of Thrones. Choo choo! (I sexually identify as a train during these times.) Here’s the newest Razzcast, with bonus technical difficulties towards the end of the cast, because #productionvalue!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Now that we are long past the Super Bowl, it’s established on our newest show that there’s quite the depressingly large gap (that’s what she said) from now until the next officially scheduled NFL event: the Draft. Zach, Matt, Tehol, and I go over some preliminary thoughts on what’s in store, What will the Browns do? Who’s going to trade up? Trade down… sideways even! After that, we finally get to talk about our newest episodic focus by talking about episodes 1-4 of The OA (24:00 minute mark for those who don’t want spoilers). Slight teaser, we dig it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Since we used all of our creative juices titling last week’s Razzcast as our “Super Bowl Episode”, it would seem apt that we would double-down on said creativeness (art me!) by making this the official “Post Super Bowl Episode”. We rock, we know… MB, Zach, and Tehol join me in discussing our own Super Bowl experiences, and make sure to separate the line between the Patriots and Patriot fandom. Let’s just say it’s a big bold line that seems to not meet all that much. That is to say, we praise the team while condemning a majority of the fanbase. I call that being a philanthropist, but whatever. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Spoiler alert! We talk about the Super Bowl and nothing much else really. Because what else is there to talk about this week? I mean, there’s still a lot to talk about in general, but why talk about that when you can default to football? That’s what we think too! We’re so a like, maybe we should date. Call me, listeners… But yeah, Matt, Alex, Tehol, and myself go over the matchup, the storylines, and who we’re exactly rooting for, which is a harder task than we thought. Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, not really, and the real winners (prize winners) will be revealed after the jump, (even though we announced the winner on our podcast), but I just want to send a shout out to everyone involved before we hit the big Super Bowl weekend. So thanks to all the Razzball contributors who hosted a league, to all of you Razzball readers who hosted a league, and, of course, to all of you Razzballers who joined and played in our league. The Razzball Commentator Leagues are a unique feature that are almost the greatest things in the world. I mean, as long as we have boobs and beer, finishing third ain’t too bad. This “universal” league brings the community together, and sure, yeah, while you’re trying to destroy each other with Aaron Rodgers and Le’Veon Bell, I’d still like to think we’re doing it out of love and togetherness (is that a word?). I look forward to building on our numbers next year (while also improving our content covering these leagues, something that we’ve had issues with, admittedly), and look forward to bigger and better prizes as well. In the mean time, let us recognize the 2016 Razzball Commentator League Prize Winners…Please, blog, may I have some more?

Coincidence that with the return of Tehol we also return to the worst production value ever? I think not. Matthew Bowe (pronounced Bowie, which was a riveting podcast revelation and assault to phonetics) joined the Lord Beddict and myself in going over Championship weekend… sorta-kinda. Sorta-kinda: the official Razzball ethos. Some other stuff was discussed, but none of it was important, just how we like it. The OA was touched upon briefly (no spoilers, just general show discussion), I finally gave the full recommendation to go see La La Land after forgetting to do so the last few episodes, and we actually watched the new Blade Runner 2049 trailer (which you can watch after the jump), because that’s what you do when you have a podcast. YOU. WATCH. THINGS. While this is probably the worst Razzcast ever, it also might be the best. We’ll let you decide!Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we officially enter into the malaise portion of the fantasy offseason, which usually lasts around 20 years until around the NFL Draft, what better way to kick things off than to address the Chargers moving roughly 80 miles up north to the sometimes-great city of Los Angeles? My thoughts as a Chargers fan my stun you, but only because I’m one of the twelve left rooting for them. With Matt and Alex, we talk last week’s Wild Card week and the upcoming games in the Divisional Playoffs, and we do it all while Matt builds another hazmat suit. This time 100% more effective… at making background noise. Enjoy our newest episode, with a bonus behind-the-scenes ending that settles once and for all why Matt needs to stop building hazmat suits…
Also, we make a special mention of this year’s 2016 RCL Champion, and to be quite honest, we can’t figure out how they did it. So congrats, we’ll have a post out soon announcing the team and other winners along with their prizes!Please, blog, may I have some more?
