Season 1: 11/25 (44%)
Season 2: 14/24 (58%)
Season 3: 13/26 (50%)

"Success" = putting the pieces in proper order on the first try. They got a falling grade.

Show notes - Episode 333: Shots Over Madison
Today's show features a song I hadn't heard, two patpeeves (kinda), and an admission of hypocrisy. Doesn't that sound fun? (No? Wow, rude.) Let's go!
Click here to download the episode!
Pat shares our favorite Happy Madison movies (2:52), praises Paramount Plus (11:47), and plays the latest song from Point North (18:55). Plus notes on the Olympics (22:57), the new Indians (32:31), and NFL vaccinations (36:11).
I didn't realize how many movies this studio has done. I feel like I've only seen or heard of half of them, so once the Olympics are over I guess I have some work to do. Thanks to everyone for sharing their favorites!
I know, I know: I'm a big phony. But Paramount Plus is awesome and I recommend it if you like old TV shows. I need to find the rest of Salute Your Shorts, but at least GUTS has been highly entertaining (and Ink Master, surprisingly). And I was able to track just how bad the kids on Legends of the Hidden Temple were at putting together the Silver Monkey, as seen below:
Thanks to our pals for their latest tune! Get Erase You here and tell them I sent you! (You don't have to do that, but they might be like "hey that's cool" or something.)
The Olympics/Simone Biles
I love the Olympics. I don't know that they should be happening when Japan is dealing with more COVID things, but it seems like they're making the best of it. Also skateboarding is awesome and I can't wait to watch the Park event. Also also if you're criticizing Simone Biles? Stop. If she's not in the right place to compete, doing her routines can be dangerous. She's one of the good ones so leave her be, you jerks.
Cleveland Indians Guardians
I don't love the name, if we're being totally honest. I *might* be okay with it if the logo wasn't whatever this is. Also the PTI guys nailed it so I hope that clip gets to stay in the show. Although it'd be my first cease and desist ever so that could also be fun?
NFL vaccine memo
The reactions to this are hilarious. The NFL is not forcing anyone to get vaccinated. They are covering themselves after last year's scheduling mess. If you aren't vaccinated, you could cost your team a win. That's what this is. That guys are threatening to retire over it is insane, but they are for sure free to do that. Good luck, youse guyses!
And that's that, pals! We did a lot today so I hope you found at least part of it interesting. If not, I may have a guest next week so that should be a good time! Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
