After a small break, we back!
From the original recording studio in Parma, OH, this episode is just Dan and Jordan as Jimmy was in Kent getting ready for college. This episode was focused around the Browns and their first appearance on HBO’s Hard Knocks. We discuss the major talking points in the episode, including Jarvis Landry’s epic speech, Baker’s first impression on camera, and the way the team rallied and united around coach Hue Jackson during the death of his mother.
We wrap up sports talking the Tribe. Should Ramirez AND Lindor be MVP front-runners? How about those two thrilling walk-off wins on 8/7 and 8/8? What are the concerns for the squad heading into the final regular season stretch?
Outside of sports, we spend some time discussing our new website and our new weekly blogs, the Hangout of the Week, the Picture of the Week, and the LOTL Sports Take. We also talk our Poll of the Week and our LOTL Top Five festivals.
Don’t forget to check out some of the awesome events this weekend! The famous Feast of the Assumption takes place in Little Italy from Aug. 15-18. More details here. Also that same weekend is the Burning River Fest (Aug. 17-18), which features live music, food, drinks and more. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.
