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?
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?
It’s Wild Card week, and with that comes our breakdown of said week in terms of football. Probably because there is no fantasy football, or at least their shouldn’t be. And if there is… why? What are we doing with our lives? Loosely labeled a “non-political” episode, we hold true this time, as Zach, Matt, and returning guest Alex (to fill in for Jen) banter about the weekend’s upcoming games, betting lines, and that’s. About. It. A football only episode? I… I just don’t even know anymore… Enjoy!Please, blog, may I have some more?
No, I’m not talking about the Marky Mark Patriotic porno that’s out in theatres right now, just in case you needed to watch a fantasy tailored specifically for Michael Bay (just without all the boobs), moreso the fact that Matt and I always find ourselves surrounded by Zach and Jen, the pro-Patriots of Razzland. And I mention that since we all went over our playoff picks, the scenarios, the “master plan”, and they all seem to involve Tom Brady, and thusly, they all involve Uggs. We also talk about Doug Martin’s Adderall problem, Cowboy boots (actual boots, not the Dallas Cowboys), and this time, Matt brings up politics, so I just happened to provide a few more thoughts on what we’re about to get via leadership in this New Year, and it was all guilt-free! (Please send all complaints, care of Matt Bowe.) Westworld came up for a bit (spoilers!), and there was some talk of Tyrod Taylor and the futility of Week 17 Championship weeks hidden in there. We also had the best goodbye ever, in that it was a functioning one. Baby steps folks…Please, blog, may I have some more?
On this week’s episode, we have everything. Existential crisis. Crisisee? Crisises? Zach (or!) Matt create their own hazmat suit and makes sure the sounds are loud enough for the world to hear throughout the entire show. Zach does an amazing Tehol impersonation. We had a Jim Rome AND PFT Commenter name drop and this time, we only spend 25 minutes trying to end the show. In fact, I added a bonus “behind the scenes” listen of how even when we do end the show, the show just. Doesn’t. End. Ever. However, even with all of this, we find time to talk about Allen Robinson, Doug Martin, Julio Jones, Jordan Reed, other Fantasy Football playoff news… and how in the world Jeff Fisher received an extension. Spoiler Alert: We couldn’t figure it out. Enjoy the show! Now, with more bonus goodbye time where we don’t say goodbye!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Westworld in a nutshell…
Or something like that. With Fantasy Football playoffs just starting, the Unbreakable MB and Jen go over the recent and infuriating/sad Gronk news, Jameis Winston and Colin Kaepernick, and a little bit on the Packers running back situation. The verdict: Mike McCarthy is an idiot. We also go over tight end drafting (there’s an easy joke here somewhere) and provide a small glimpse of the Razzball Writer’s League, which has been largely forgotten (or ignored) by yours truly. Probably because Zach is in first place. Then we tackle Westworld’s season thus far (at 31:35) and go into stuff that involve spoilers, which the unwanted revelation of will never happen here wihtout warning, folks. Except when those whales with lasers came out a couple weeks back. What a twist! However, I am willing to allow non-spoiler GIFs like the one above, which is a national treasure. And also probably my own inner-monologue when editing Tehol’s posts…
Here’s the newest episode of the newly renamed Razzcast!Please, blog, may I have some more?
