On last week's show Lance said he hates Mike. It was a powerful moment in the show and in their relationship, a moment that will live in infamy. As a result, this week Mike walks on eggshells as he masterfully navigates a variety of headlines from MLB, NBA and NFL. The question is, is he able to maintain his careful navigation of Lance's emotions? Can Mike maintain the level of cuddliness and warmth that Lance needs? Tune in to find out.
We review all the big storylines in the MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL. Of particular note is a story that came out in Bleacher Report that the Minnesota Vikings screwed up by signing Kirk Cousins. We also review Kellen Winslow II's legal troubles and the disturbing allegations against him.
The Rubes open the show by honoring Pancho Billa and inducting him as the first member of the Rube Ring of Honor. They then roll into a breakdown of the NBA Playoffs, including why Mike D'Antoni (head coach of the Houston Rockets) can't win the meaningful games. Also, Kawhi Leonard's last second shot for the Toronto Raptors was insane. The Scott Terrible Take goes to a conspiracy theorist who can't look at things rationally. Finally, a breakdown of current NHL and MLB storylines closes out the show. Enjoy!
The show starts and ends with Lance being in a bad mood, despite Rube Mike's best efforts to get him to smile. In between, we get MLB and NBA updates as well as some NHL talk.
The Rubes give everybody a deep analysis of the NFL Draft, including the ridiculous first pick of the draft. Other NFL storylines are discussed, including the terrible Tyreek Hill story. This week's Scott Terrible Take is proof that the Rubes can look inward. And finally, an update on the NBA playoffs. Enjoy!
