Last week the NHL became the first major U.S. sports league to announce a formal plan for its return. This week we talk about what the plan is, our thoughts on the playoff structure, and what this could mean for other sports leagues. We also share our thoughts on the 2011 legal thriller The Lincoln Lawyer, Disney's first gay protagonist, and our other streaming suggestions.
For three glorious days, it felt like we were back to normal. Sports were back. Sort of. And just like sports is want to do, it left some fans bitterly disappointed. This week Ryan and Zach talk about Rob Gronkowski coming out of retirement to play with Tom Brady, where the biggest names in college are playing in the NFL, and how Eagles fans feel betrayed and bewildered by their draft picks. They also share their thoughts on the Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista comedy, Stuber, along with some other streaming suggestions.
Life has really changed in the past week. To do their part, Ryan and Zach are recording remotely, so while they're not in the same studio they were able to invite some friends to join the show. This week they discuss the only thing happening in the sports world - NFL Free Agency - as well as what they've been watching from home, including Frozen 2 and the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
