Sport is business. Business is war. War is fashion. Fashion is community. Community is music. Music is sport. On and on, 'till the break of dawn. Don't worry, it will all make sense in context. The important thing is that Robbie, Chris, and Thom manage to weave nearly half a show on the subject of sports and sports fandom, despite -- or perhaps because of -- their abject lack of knowledge and expertise on said subject. Then, heady with power, they move on to tackle other mysteries of the universe, including the connections between fruit juice and school shootings, the questionable origins of "My Sweet Lord," the secret history of NASCAR, the impending retirement of Kevin Smith, and the omnipresent threat of foot-in-mouth disorder. Also, the first installment of The Greatest Songs You've Never Heard, and Robbie unwittingly demonstrates the 100th Monkey Principle via his disdain for George Lucas. Music by Paul Collins, Kitty & The Tree, and Cotton Mather
