After a two-week break, LOTL is back on the grind.
It was a fun and festive holiday season, full of good times with friends and family for all. But the LOTL boys all agree that it’s nice to be back in the “studio.” They were joined again by Stephen Stephano, who joins the show for the third time.
No beer of the week, but they had a “brew” of the week — the “Black Pearl” (dark roast, Colombian Supremo beans) by Calico Jack Roasters, an Eastside Cleveland roastery. With dark, chocolate, carmel and fruity notes, it was highly recommended by LOTL.
With the college bowl season in full swing and the NFL playoffs around the corner, they started the episode discussing their top five favorite watch party foods. After that, they got into the poll of the week, which was very simple: are you a New Years resolution person or no?
The meat of the episode was centered around a season recap of the Browns, who generally surprised most with their resilience and competitiveness. Though they didn’t make the playoffs, a 7-8-1 record sure was nicer than an 0-16 one. But most of all, the LOTL guys marveled over Baker Mayfield, who has established himself as the Browns franchise quarterback — three words no Cleveland fan ever thought they’d hear. They wrap up the Browns talk with a discussion of who should be the next Browns head coach.
They end the episode with some reviews: Jordan reviews the amazing weekly deals at Merry Arts Tavern in Lakewood, and then he also talks about three new beers that were announced by Great Lakes Brewery!
