Today we hear a tune from new friends, dive into political jobs, and take aim at baseball writers. Let's go!
Pat plays music from glimmers (4:35), then rambles on tech issues (8:40), and political jobs we'd take (12:46). Plus NFL playoffs (29:58), the Baseball Hall of Fame (34:47), and a Flyers Update from The Captain (37:57).

Tech stuff (pt 367)
I have learned how to connect my interface to my mixer. I no longer have to switch my headphones and use a bunch of extra wires (one). I just can't believe the answer was so simple. How could I not figure this out on my own? Why did it take weeks? (Because I'm a dope.)
I did not think I would go off on that tangent about presidential succession, but I had a good time with it (and learned things!). I did miss one job from our friend, Smelly Meatball, which I will share with you here:
Probably mayor of a quiet small rural town. Likely would be a very laid back job with the only worries being a hypothetical zombie or other horror-based monster invasion and maybe boredom if its the type of town with limited to non-existent internet access.
NFL Conference Championships
49ers and Eagles. Bengals and Chiefs. These are the final four teams and I think any one of them could win the title. These games should be great, which means the Superb Owl should also be great. I hope you all win some money on these.
Baseball Hall of Fame
I love Scott Rolen. He is my favorite Phillies player. I met him in 1996 before the Phillies played the Red Sox at Fenway Park and he could not have been nicer [in our 10-second interaction]. He was a top player at his position for many years, so yes he deserves to be here even if the counting stats don't show it. I am very much looking forward to seeing him go in alongside Fred McGriff. (Also if you submit a blank ballot, you suck and should not be allowed to vote next time.)
And that's that, my friends! We did it! Thanks for coming today. I hope you have all of the fun doing your things. Next week I have no idea what's going to be on, so come on back and let's have some fun! Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
