    Bill: "Would you rather have Trey Lance or Mac Jones plus 2 first round picks?"

    House: "I'll take the 2 firsts and you can keep Mac Jones"

    Can’t lie the story of his son getting a 15 yarder penalty for excessive celebration for doing the Deion dance was awesome.

    On "a button hook...the Gronk play" where he actually went deep

    definitely a “button hook.”




    a pats fan who considers himself in the top 1% of football fans not knowing what Hoss Y Juke is is pretty embarrassing

    The more I follow present bball and hear Bill say things that are either objectively wrong or that I think I can make a strong argument against, I really question his opinions on historical bball.

    Obligatory, I hope the Celtics fucking suck.

    He doesn't understand anything about the actual sports he follows beyond narratives. He doesn't know shit about historical basketball beyond "Celtics number 1!" He just has a good memory, that's it. Just because I could tell you who won Best Album at the Grammys in the 1970s doesn't mean I know shit about the music business.

    On the Jazz 53 win total that Ryen and Joe House like:

    “If it’s (the over) such a lock, why is the total 53?”

    He uses in reference to a roster that fits well together. I “think” he used it regarding the Jazz in the NBA over/under pod with House and Russillo.

    A lot of blathering on by Bill at the beginning that just amounts to "When the Red Sox are bad, I don't watch. When the Red Sox are good, I watch more games."

    He really really wants people to believe he still watches baseball games

    i don’t know many people with teenagers who rewatch old MTV Challenge seasons in full either. It’s clear baseball doesn’t interest him beyond rooting against the Yankees, if he just came clean and said he’s a fair weather Sox fan now nobody would care that he isn’t watching the games
