New Intern, Vacation Recap + More – July 5 FBHW Show Recap
We're back from vacation! It will be short lived, though, because Joe and Steve leave for Spain this weekend to run with the bulls. It is finally starting to sink in for them that this will be happening next week. Free Beer watched an ESPN special on the worst professional soccer player of all time over vacation. We were surprised to learn that it was actually Al-Saadi al-Gaddafi, son of the Libyan Leader Muammar al-Gaddafi! He basically used his money to buy a spot on the team. Unfortunately for him, he sucked.
Hot Wings told us about everything that happened to him while on vacation including an update on his dad's health and a crazy diaper explosion. Traveling with two kids under the age of two was a bit of a pain in the ass for him. Free Beer brought in some show-and-tell this morning! While going through some boxes, he came across a picture of he and Hot Wings from around 1996. You can see that on the Photos page. A toddler in China fell out of a tenth story window to certain death, but was somehow caught by a woman walking down the street! The kid is in critical condition and will hopefully survive. A biker in upstate New York was participating in an anti-helmet rally when he fell off his bike and died. Ironically, paramedics said that a helmet would have prevented his injury and death. We took some calls on the topic, including one from a fussy biker who would do anything to disagree with us.
Our new intern Brett started today. Today will be the first and last time he will ever be referred to by his real name, though, because he has a striking resemblance to The American Dream Dusty Rhodes. You can see a side-by-side comparison on the Photos page. Since yesterday was the 4th of July, we replayed some of the best "Fireworks in the Sink Challenge" clips from the past. We also said that we would take those calls at any point throughout the show. Nike is taking some heat over a new athlete they have signed to an endorsement deal. They have resigned Michael Vick, after dropping him a few years ago because of the dog fighting scandal. We discussed whether or not they should be getting all of the hate or not. We took calls from people who wanted to tell us how they ruined the 4th of July celebrations they were at. Not surprisingly, most of the stories included alcohol and explosives.
Good news: there's a new solution to world hunger! Since there are so many cats in the world, some scientists are saying that it may be possible to harvest them for their juicy cat meat. No thank you. In today's FBHW Report, we played the audio of Mark Halperin calling Obama a dick, and also talked about the recent problems with the anti-smoking drug Chantix.
The entire last hour of the show was spent going over a list of the top 50 American rock bands of all time. As is usually the case with these types of lists, we agreed with many but also thought of a bunch that should have been way higher on the list. We also took a few random fireworks in the sink calls. Talk to you on Wednesday.
