Beers, Business, and Balls

27-10-2022 • 53 mins

Hit the road with us! We head to the Big Apple for Big East Basketball Media Day, the Yankees’ series-winning victory over the Guardians, and our visit to the Barstool headquarters in Manhattan. We take you in live to our segment on last week’s episode of Macrodosing, as The Wonton Don, Billy Football, and Arian Foster review our very own Don’s Early Light. Also making their second appearances on the show are college basketball expert Andy Katz and Providence head coach Ed Cooley. Will chats with Georgetown head coach and Knicks legend Patrick Ewing, and Jake catches up with Marquette head coach & former marshal of the cinderella-story VCU Rams, Shaka Smart. Finally, Providence’s Jared Bynum joins us to break down the Friars’ season and tells us which transfers we should keep our eyes on.

BEERS: We’re clinging onto NEIPA season like our lives depend on it. Jake tries Barewolf Brewing, a nano brewery in Amesbury, MA. This week, it’s “Pina Colossus,” which reminds us a lot of one of our HBC favorites, Grocery Store Joe - with real pineapple and notes of other fruits, this is one we’ll be looking for again. Will tries Zonk, a cannabis-infused imperial IPA from Grimm Artisanal Ales. While the high wasn’t there, the flavor most certainly was, as this is one of the more hoppy beers you can find in New England.

BUSINESS: We tease two big storylines that we’ll dive into more next week. In the ever-evolving saga of Elon Musk, he visited the Twitter HQ today, and many think it’s to evaluate who he will be laying off. What’s next? Also, Adidas cuts ties with Kanye West after his off-color comments. They’ll take a $246 million hit due to severing their partnership, but many believe they’ve actually saved themselves from more long-term losses by cutting ties with ‘Ye now.

BALLS: This week’s Contenders are playing against each other, while our Pretenders have two veteran quarterbacks struggling to continue to prove their worth. Who rises up to the challenge, and who caves? The Yankees are now out after getting swept by Houston, and it’s down to the Astros and the Phillies in the World Series. We close with poking some fun at the LA Lakers, who are the worst-shooting team in NBA history right now.
