On the "12 Reasons why it wasn't Brady's Season" CDST Show (Part 2):

On the “12 Reasons why it wasn’t Brady’s Season” CDST Show (Part 2):
— Larry David debunks the myth of shrinkage after he visits the kiddie pool and has a heart to heart with Tim Kazurinsky (“C’mon Hugh”)
— Curb Your Enthusiasm examines with a microscope the age old question, is the small _ or the large _ (just ask Big Jeff) (“Comas are very unpredictable” … “She told me, you had a small …” “no no no… she had the biggest _ known to man” “These big _ ladies are getting away with murder”)
— A classic round table of criminal minds from Batman (shades of the meeting of superpowers at Yalta)
— Brady’s flamboyant son, like you’ve never heard him
— Caruso goes off subject on why TB is so gorgeous and has to be reeled back in to reality; he proceeds to explain why the Vikes can beat the Aints (consistently running the ball and avoiding turnovers)
— No ChabDog … Mason Rudolf does not play tight end for Minnesota
— Psychoanalyzing Kirk Cousins with the benefit of a couch potato and at no charge (he hates being caught in the middle and is probably color blind)
— Maahk swears the divisional round will go uniformly for the home teams (yes, there is historical precedent) (is this his transparent effort to curry favor with San Fran’s playtex playmaker)
— Who knew Sanu knew how to field punts?
— Edelman must’ve been on too many painkillers … he couldn’t feel his hands
— Can Smart Money ever be coming outta Philly … whose fans had some very disturbing eating habits after their most recent Super Bowl win?
— Deshaun “Houdini” Watson
— Turning Fed Ex Stadium into the Ronald Rivera House
— Putting the Big Tuna in as the Washington GM (aren’t we running out of ice for that potentially smelly fish?)
— Turning down Well-read’s garlic bread is indeed an impossible proposition
— Fond remembrances of Shaq Mason looking oh so guilty when he found himself illegally downfield after Brady held rock for more than the obligatory 5 seconds
— Our cantankerous cabbie proves that he did write the book on coming up with old and new excuses for New England (including the familiar standby … it’s all Josh McDaniel’s, no… Stevie Belichick’s fault … and why can’t you find one freaking fullback)
— Frank Gorshin horsing around to perfection doing a Burt Lancaster Caped Crusader and a Kirk Douglas Robin on Deano’s Variety Show, followed up by a Brando Batman and a Steiger Boy Wonder (“I don’t know about you Robin… Robbie, Robbie, Robbie….I said I give you my word… I didn’t say I give you my Ward”)
— The slippery slide slope that has become Gronk’s TV career
— ChabDog warns us that Brees may not have it so easy today in the Big Easy without a productive tight end and heightened anxiety caused by large men in purple tights
— Back to the Battle of the Birds (this game is definitely not as watchable as the Hitchcock film)
— Eric professes love for Pete the Cheat, while some of us are digging Doug
— Getting an expert opinion on what happens when you’re inside a taxi that gets hailed by a heat seeking missile
— Hill replaces the possibly over-the-Hill starter and connects for a 40 yarder to the goal line (not necessarily a harbinger of good things to come)
— an abbreviated symposium on the elusive notion of international justice
— An interesting take on why the Saints chose to wear the weak white unis at home … a possible statement about surrender?
— And speaking of what inquiring minds want to know … what’s up with Troy Boy’s red eyes .. someone needs to such some Visine up to the booth
— Loving on the pride of Maryland … the perfect excavation machine Stefon Diggs
— Turning ourselves on again with some kick ass Genesis, “Turn It On Again”, baby!

On the "Sweet Week 16" CDST show (Part 2):

Julian shows us how to do a real play action/play acting face plant on the football field…

On the “Sweet Week 16” CDST show (Part 2):
— Please be forewarned, this part of the show is rated “RR”, for Relatively Raunchy
— Going back in time with Baxter (this is a lot more entertaining than your typically stuffy TED conference) (a somewhat cranky Cronkite doing comedy) (an epidemic of legal proportions) (see if you can read this … “you’re fried” … “Ted, I’m gonna kill you”) (the news, is not the place for prayers)
— And for some really dark humor, we watch the Steelers get their butts kicked by Ficken and the feckless Jets)
— Maahk tells us some great barroom jokes about getting shitfaced… and they don’t involve gerbils (“there’s no blanket big enough to cover me”) …
— Sometimes nobody’s fool can capably represent himself in cajoling a court dismissal … and this one was certainly with prejudice
— Exactly how big is Big Ben’s beard? Not as big as his massive mug.
— We provide a very abridged history of the genius of Genesis, courtesy American Psycho (“I think invisible touch is the group’s undisputed masterpiece … Kristy, take off the robe … You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument … Sabrina, why don’t you uh, dance a little … take the lyrics to Land of Confusion …in this song, Phil Collins addresses the problem of abusive political authority… Kristy, get down on your knees … I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group than as a solo artist, and I stress the word, artist)
— Henry Hill teaches us how to multitask … all with helicopters tracking your every movement (done to a sound track you won’t soon forget, Stones, “I’m a Monkeyyyyy Mannnnn”, George Harrison, “What I feel, I can’t say… What is my life, I can’t say”) (then I had to get the cooking date, and get Lois ready for her trip) (don’t let the sauce stick … keep stirring it) (and what did she do after she hangs up with me, she picks up the phone calls right from the house)
— Speaking of the Patriots, “Winners are winners”
— Who said, “We didn’t show Baltimore nothing”
— And how about Krafty Productions and that very observant film crew
— None of us saw Seattle getting cold-cocked by the Cardinals, but credit Well-read with sizing up a totally obnoxious spread
— God knows why our esteemed host forgot about the Kirk Cousins MNF jinx (it was pure boredom with Green Bay)
— An almost live report as Edelman comes back from his play action/play acting Ju Ju psuedo concussion (no he wasn’t really hurt… just catching his breath) to knife in for a 2-pt conversion that really stuck it to the counterfeit Bills
— Caruso tells us exactly what Stevie Belichick does …it appears he is the “safeties” coach … or is it “secondaries” … and as a condiment he works closely with Jerod Mayonnaise
— How disappointing, … no hot Brady rumors
— Falcons smoke a ‘J” … as in Jacksonville
— Do not listen to Cabbie’s summary of the home field advantage race in the AFC (he’s completely off-base)
— The conversation takes a wild and woolly turn for the worse
— A side of Ronald Reagan you never really knew (“Okay, get back in here … let’s get down to business.. the C5As will leave for South America at 12 O’clock … I am the President, only I need to understand.. the red countries are the countries we sell arms to, the yellow countries are where we wash our money…well Lisa, maybe I can use you up on Capital Hill … back to work!”)
— Speaking of sharp, how about that Mike Tomlin … throwing Mason “My feet are set in stone” back into the fire
— Celtics ring the Taco Fall bell, just to watching a guy dunk without jumping, and sizing up their competition in the East
— What’s with all the broken bones; Gordon Heyward should drink more milk
— Be advised that when your last name ends in an “O” it can be harder to get the benefit of the doubt
— A final reminder to run for the hills … when everyone picks the Redskins
— We fade out with trip down the river Styx, with “Renegade”; too bad the Stillers weren’t listening

Could they be falling for Fall in Boston …

On the "Sweet Week 16" CDST show (Part 1):

Texans were overjoyed to have a J-date with J-miss Winston

On the “Sweet Week 16” CDST show (Part 1):

— Tank rolls in to give us a sobering assessment of Giants/Jets stadium (if you’re hungry, don’t be in any rush to get to the facility in East Rutherford … better to hang out at the tailgate)
— Now Citi Field that’s a different story (how about the mouth watering pastrami sammiches, the designer Japanese joint, and the rest of the food court?)
— Frank does his best Biden impression, getting noticeably tongue tied over the kicken by Ficken, before revealing his strong inkling that Gang Green will sink the Black ‘N Gold, and then predicting that the Patriots will be vulnerable in the AFC East in 5 or 6 years.
— the Burrfect choice for Vontez: playoff win vs. head hunting on Antonio Brown
— Will Brady ever ride off into the sunset? Nah!!!!!
— Belichick’s retort when confronted with Bengal spying … “Well, you know, that’s how I do it?”
— Those poor Devils who play in The Garden State and who’ve been lost due to incompetence in the Third Period since freaking Columbus Day; hey hey PK, you’re living large with Lindsay, but lately stinking on ice (2 steps up, then more than a few down)Time to pile on the Islander ferry boat (3rd best in the Wales)

— Comparing the always sick Knicks with the stabilized Nets
— Was Porcello a poor choice for the Mets?
— Memories of Big Bad Ben Mcadoolittle
— All about Tommy Boy auditioning for Chariots of Fire as he strains to attain the goal line (too bad the fat lineman didn’t go for the gratuitous head fake and body slammed him to the ground instead)

— How a court failed when it tried to play the dangerous game, “Pin the klonopin on the Caruso”
— ChabDog just can’t get excited about the NFC (not even thrilling)
— Since when does Boise State forget to show up at a bowl game … even if it happens to be the useless Nevada Bowl

— Liberty plays in the Religious Cure Bowl
— And how can they have two bowl games in both Orlando and New Orleans?
— Frisco’s “Fat in the Can” Bowl… where they play more than soccer; yes, the Dallas Stars shine there (yes, yours truly was speaking the truth)
— Texans were overjoyed to have a J-date with J-miss Winston
— Trying to get a grasp of the top tier status of Garoppolo
— Temporary trash strike in Philly, as the Eagles soar against the ‘Boys (only one of our panelists smelled this out)
— Why didn’t I realize the Chargers have completely lost their connection with local LA fans, as well as with winning (even against the Raiders)
— Our very special Xmas promo (how to ask for presents you really want … and we’re not talking Peanuts)
— Yes, ATL will crack Jax over their knees in support of dear departed coach Dan
— A total consensus against slight favorite TN
— Caruso can’t resist the Skins (what was he smoking?)
— PIttsburgh’s missing a middle linebacker, but their defense is still great (that’s not the problem)
— Are the Dolphins still tanking for Tua? Even so, it’s with Miami we go (sorry Cincy)
— Someone please tell Frank’s neighbor Ralph that the Colts have quit (except for today’s game against careless Carolina)

— Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Leslie Mann in “Funny People” …a trailer you won’t soon forget (“Well, you know”; “Do you have any friends that have any friends just like you, just funnier and way more talented”, “The one that got away .. guys got that and serial killers have that”, “you’re hiding some Judaism”, “I don’t know how to fight, I’m a comedian” “You don’t pass through fire to get to Heaven, I think he went to Hell”)
