Is It Better To Be A Fatalist Fan Or A Raging Asswipe?

There are a lot of ways for football fans to be insufferable. You have your fatalist fans like me who always expect the worst and expect you to pity them. And you have your loudmouth asswipe fans who brag about their team constantly and outright refuse to acknowledge when they’ve been owned on the field. Sometimes you even come across fans from Boston who somehow embody both traits simultaneously, which is fun. But what kind of insufferable football fan is the LEAST insufferable football fan? Is there even a good way to be a fan without coming across like a total dipshit? My friends, that is the subject of this week’s [siren emoji overload] EMERGENZY DEADCAST.

But wait! There’s more! Yes, Roth and I also talk about the Chris Paul hallway fracas, the NFL playoffs, and we answer YOUR queries about dinner for breakfast, evil horses, South Park fatigue, and more! Also, we are taking this shit on the road for Super Bowl week. I’ll have more details as we get closer, but you should GIRD YOUR LOINS and prepare to get drunk with us in Minneapolis two weeks from now.


You can also listen at iHeart Radio, Stitcher, Spotify, NPR One, Apple Podcasts, or GooglePlay. And don’t forget to email us tips and/or general complaints at Have fun out there.
