In the finale of the 2013 NFL preseason, Zach “Spideydude” Joiner is back with Tom (Kelen and Paul bailed, shame shame) to deliver the 2013 NFL Preview! Containing: Richard Seymour is still eating chicken, how the NFC West has become one of the best divisions in the NFL within 3 seasons, the Steelers get compared to a 1975 VW Rabbit, Tom wants JJ Watt to destroy Tom Brady, more Gabbert bashing, Zach’s high school football team got thumped by Ryan Tannehill, Tom thinks both New York football teams will fire coaches after this season, and the show turns into Moves Like Big Papi with a little MLB talk! There’s only one way to see if Tom can correctly pick the Super Bowl winner again, so why haven’t you pressed play yet?
The sister project of Soon You’ll Understand as I was writing and recording both at the same time. AKA my resignation letter from The Shoe Dept.

Second Round Results: 2-2 (8-4)
Two Sundays ago, the Bulls were seconds away from forcing overtime in Game 4, an overtime period that I’m convinced they would’ve won to go up 3-1 on the Cavs. Now they’re at home after giving up in Game 6 and about to lose their best head coach since Phil Jackson. Seconds away. Final four time.
Second Round Results: 4-0 (10-2)
I’ve been guessing these series pretty well, but I still don’t know enough for you to trust me. Final four time.
#1 New York Rangers v. #3 Tampa Bay Lightning – Rangers are hot now. Should beat Tampa Bay in 5.
#1 Anahiem Ducks v. #3 Chicago Blackhawks – This will be a slugfest. I have Chicago in 7 games, but I’m regretting this as I write only because I feel like I’m putting the failed hopes of the Bulls on their shoulders now. Don’t hate me Blackhawks fans. I just want the Chi to win in general. Unless it’s the Bears. Or the White Sox. Even I have a soft spot for the Cubs.
I finished redesigning the Podcasts section of the site last week. Every podcast that I’m involved with is here now and well as my guest appearances on other podcast.

- Trike Adventures – Hosted with Anthony Sellers and Thomas Crawford. A roundtable podcast, I (try to) moderate by bringing various topics to talk about, but most of the time everyone makes fun of me. NSFW.
- The Slobberknocker Chronicles – Hosted with Thomas Crawford. A wrestling podcast, Thomas and I discuss the current state of affairs in the WWE.
- Moves Like Curtis: The Podcast – Hosted by Thomas Deja. Rising from Tom’s Moves Like Curtis column, this is a NFL podcast covering the latest in league events.

In this edition, Kelen and Matt take on a subject everyone has wondered: Is Kanye West crazy? Along the way, they discover that Kanye is a genius a*****e, that Kelen really loves Roc-A-Fella, Matt muses what present day Kanye would think of 2005 Kanye, that Kanye says things like this, “I was raised better than that, that was very arrogant.”, that Kanye is always a little more crazier at the MTV Video Music Awards, and much more! Also, 50 Cent is a genius, Amber Rose was hotter pregnant than Kim Kardashian was, how South Park is the king of “too soon”, and why we don’t listen to Talib Kweli anymore! So while we want Kanye to find happiness, we also want you to press play, and watch out for that stop sign!
In this episode, Paul Hermann and Kelen Conley join Tom as they try to figure out where the 2013 New York Jets go from here… with the here being Tim Tebow. Kelen predicts that Greg McElroy will be the starting quarterback, Paul talks Tom off the ledge about John Idzik, Tom tears his team apart and Paul and Kelen convince him that the playoffs are still within reach, Macklemore could be the Jets new starting quarterback, Eric Mangini is a robot, Shonn Greene is compared to Chuck Austen’s War Machine, and of course, the butt fumble is mentioned several times. It’s an episode shared more than MetLife Stadium, don’t you want to get your cleats on and come along?
First Round Results: 6-2
I really don’t know how to go on with these playoffs after the series the Clippers and the Spurs just had. Instant classic. Of course, that’s what happens when the NBA gets uptight about its seeding and makes sure Division Champions have home court advantage. And like everyone else, Game 7 was way better than Mayweather/Pacquiao.
