This week’s episode starts out with an Public Service Announcement to podcasters everywhere – be careful what you say about Roger Goodell or ESPN may suspend you. The Oh’s Knows Bro’s then discuss the Iowa Hawkeyes and take a stab at predicting the upcoming Big Ten schedule. After a brief discussion about the ACL Music Festival, gambling and treating your girlfriend right the guys play some games! IMDB Movie Game, and like always a very special themed game of “Who, Who Are You?” This podcast is dedicated to Larry Bird #33 in your programs #1 in your hearts.
Oh word? A new theme song for a very special game?! But before that – Adam and Nick, the Oh’s Knows Brothers not to be confused, talk about the crushing Iowa Hawkeyes loss as well as the biggest surprises so far in the NFL season when it comes to on the field activity. They also break down the first race of the NASCAR Chase and debate over who will be there at the end, cough Jimmie, cough not. Then the new theme song rolls us into a not so spirited round of “Top4 Movie Game” and someone mails it in “Who, Who Are You?”
This week on Oh’s Knows.. The bros talk about the weekend that was, starting with an embarrassing win – really? – over a MAC football team by the Iowa Hawkeyes followed by the NFL weekend that was. Adam breaks down the best and worst part of the Cowboy’s season.. There’s a best? – and Nick talks a little bit about the Cardiac Colts. I think. The guys also make their picks for the NASCAR Race for the Chase and look forward to Iowa vs. Iowa State this weekend as well as discuss proper group texting etiquette. Wrapping things up with some games, we try and Stump the Schwab, but he wasn’t having it with these Ax Men. It’s ladies week on IMDB Top 4 Working Title and a fun and yet informative round of Who, Who Are You?
The Oh’s Knows Bros sit down to talk first and foremost, if they each have ever messed around and gotten a triple double. After quickly acknowledging that no, it has not ever happened – if you don’t count NBA Live 2005, they talk about a very impressive win from the Iowa Hawkeyes this past Saturday over the Michigan Wolverines. The guys also talk about going to, and seeing the LEGO Movie, and how amazing it was. This leads into a discussion about how Pixar and Disney movies are definitely made for parents, and not really kids. Pixar somehow leads into talking about Hitler’s art as a child, and how he was kind of a dick. Wrapping things up the guys talk about Parks and Recreation, and compare Hendricks Motorsports to Stewart Haas Racing, talking just a little bit of NASCAR as they prepare for the Daytona 500 in 12 days!
Before yesterday, the Iowa Hawkeyes hadn’t beaten the Illini in Champaign since the 1900’s. It was 1999, but jeez that was 15 years ago. A game that was an absolute must win for the Hawks started out just right. Illinois looked sloppy and Iowa was scoring at will. Aaron White was dunking on people like Tom Chambers, Adam Woodbury was playing like a 7 foot center should, Gabriel Olaseni continued to play out of his mind and be one of the best players on the court, as well as Uthoff and Olgesby knocking down threes with Mike Gesell controlling the game and running the court like Steve Nash. Err, BJ Armstrong? Mike Gesell was just playing pretty good. Oh! Like Jeff Horner! And then, with the Hawks up 21 with almost 10 mins to play in the half, it felt like someone decided to tell the team, “Hey this is the end of the Michigan State game, you guys should try and not score any field goals.” And in unison they all went, “Okay!” It was ugly. Good teams do not go for extended periods of time, (15 minutes against MSU and 7 and a half minutes against Illinois). But good teams do find ways to close these games out. Who was Iowa going to be Saturday? The latter! They decided to play good, well, better and they won! Yay! It really wasn’t that easy. Illinois played tough in the second. I think. I honestly started doing the dishes and flipping back and forth between the game and Modern Family. Listen I love my Hawks. But I also like to watch good fundamentally sound basketball. The Hawks didn’t disappoint. They definitely gave a few people heart attacks, again this year – but you’ll have that. After a tough loss against the Spartans, and a real chance to watch everyone jump off the bandwagon if they didn’t play well in Champaign, the Hawks proved that maybe they are a Final Four contender? Or maybe just one of the Top 2 or 3 teams in the Big Ten. Yeah. Let’s just start there. PS Roy Devyn Marble quietly won Player of the Game honors. Continues to play like a, according to Stephen Bardo “Full Grown Man.”
This episode starts out with the guys talking about feeling cultured drinking wine, and drinking craft beer – but then turning back to good ole fashioned Busch Light. They guys also dissect the Hawkeyes loss to Michigan State on Wednesday night and talk about a few people overreacting about the 2 point loss to the 7th ranked team in the country. Wrapping things up the guys talk Super Bowl, prop bets, who wins and why the Bronco’s kicker Matt Prater needs to change his number to 64!
We are almost 24 hours removed from the Iowa loss to Michigan State at Carver Hawkeye. But I still feel like taking out my anger like this kid. There are a few ways to release the stress and built up anger out after a loss – like bust your desk with a lamp and rip up every DVD case that makes you think of, said, really tough loss. Our good buddy decided to murder his dinner tray. I mainly drank heavily and threw every gold t-shirt I own as hard as I could against the wall. Oh and I also prayed. But big props to this guy for making me, us, and everyone feel better about ourselves. Like I always say before I go to the dentist, “Someone always looks worse than me.”
And please never tell this kid we did actually pick Batista to win the Royal Rumble.
