This week has been wild, so we have to get right to it today. New music, a patpeeve, Baseball Hall of Fame, The Captain, and more!
New music from Midnight Skies (5:53), which sports trophies we’d win (10:14), dumb delivery drivers (25:28), the Baseball Hall of Fame (47:23), RAW is Netflix (56:27), and a Flyers Update from The Captain (1:07:04).

Many thanks to our new friends for the tune! My gamble paid off because the song slaps, as the kids say. Find more from them here and tell em Pat sent you!
Thank you also to everyone who weighed in on this week's question. I put the pictures together on my phone, so I'm sorry if they look wonky. And I hope you all win!
(The order goes: Olympic Gold Medal, UFC Championship, Lombardi Trophy [Super Bowl], Premier League Cup, Emperor's Cup [Sumo], Acapulco Cup [Tennis], Lord Stanley's Cup [NHL], World Series [MLB], World Cup.)
Delivery drivers don't deliver
I know I've peeved about this already, but man. How can this keep happening? What is so hard about bringing my items to the door, or at least into my front yard? Some of these people don't even get close! It's so dumb.
Baseball Hall of Fame
Congratulations to Jim Leyland, Adrian Beltre, Joe Mauer, and Todd Helton! All are well-deserved Hall of Fame inductees. Let's cross our fingers for Billy Wagner next year, and for Gary Sheffield when one of the committees gets together!
RAW is Netflix
The flagship WWE show not being on regular TV next year is going to be wild. People are already complaining, but I want to hear from someone in January 2025 who completely missed the news and is searching for RAW on their actual TV channels. Also, The Rock owning his name is pretty cool. I am honestly surprised he didn't have that already.
(Full disclosure: I recorded the show before the latest Vince McMahon news dropped, so here's a quick thought: We knew he was gross when the allegations came out in 2022. This shouldn't surprise us. However! There needs to be a full, external investigation. And anyone involved in the act and/or the coverup needs to suffer consequences. There we are with the serious stuff.)
Thank you, Captain, for dropping in once again. The team is middling about at this point, and the Carter Hart rumors don't sound good. But you always bring it and I do appreciate your hard work!
And that, as we say, is that! We did all of the things somehow. Come on back next week for more stuff - I have a question planned - and good luck in the Royal Rumble game! Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
