Episode 2842: America United, Motown Love, Release The Tapes, Rees Lightning Abandons Wales
America is divided, a nation at war with itself, between black and white, red and blue – so we should be thankful for those rare moments that unite a country… like when the Dallas Cowboys get humiliated and beaten up in the NFL Playoffs.
We talk to US Murph about why people love to hate the Cowboys, why everyone now loves the Detroit Lions, and we throw it forward to an incredibly appetising weekend of matches coming up.
We also discuss Rees Zammit’s move to the NFL, another Release The Tapes VAR controversy, Billy Joel, and people biting people’s kneecaps being presented as some kind of victory.
