August 15, 2021: Texans win, Astros mash, Rockets top pick injured
Paul and Jeff are back with recaps of the Texans first preseason game, and the Astros second half of the week. The headline of the week involves chimpanzees.Paul went on a BBQ roadtrip (9:19) this weekend, while Jeff did sick bike tricks to places he was chauffeured to (15:30). The Texans got in trouble with the NFL (18:13), and Deshaun Watson finally spoke to the media! (23:14). Watson’s situation got worse toward the end of the week (24:57), which begs the question: did not trading Watson become a worse move than trading Deandre Hopkins (28:46)? THE TEXANS PLAYED A GAME (32:27)! It doesn’t matter, but we broke it down. Jeff learns about the Texans’ kickers’ ridiculous contract (37:16). Paul and Jeff do a quick end of week recap (41:35) and congratulate Chris Davis for securing the bag (48:45).

Paul Muth and Jeff Dustin went LIVE on Twitch and FB for the first time in 30 episodes! A sunburned (4:14) and bike-less Jeff teamed up with Paul to cover a big week in Houston sports. The Texans began training camp and that means we’re about to get a full dosage of dumb David Culley quotes (10:43). Paul does a terrible job reading parts of Drew Magary’s “Why your team sucks” column on the Texans (14:58), and then the two give the same Deshaun Watson update that the rest of the media has given (20:58). They then move on to discuss the Rockets huge draft night, giving insight into the potential face of the franchise, Jalen Green (23:58). If you’re wondering what his favorite snack is, they’ve got that covered too (29:19). They break down the other draft picks as well (34:14) and rattle off draft grades other outlets have given (37:12) before moving on to the Astros big trade deadline moves (39:19).

July 4th, 2021: Astros get snubbed, college athletes get PAID (NIL explained)
It’s the most American episode ever. Sportsmap (and new Wrestling Republic) writer Paul Muth overcomes hundreds of miles and another dying webcam to drop a fresh new track (that’s lame, won’t do it again) with Jeff Dustin. Paul reminds everyone to chill after the Astros spent a week getting beaten up by terrible teams, and snubbed in the All Star ballot. Paul highlights a starting pitcher that should be taken out of the doghouse (Jake Odorizzi). Slow news from the Houston Rockets and the Houston Texans, so the conversation then turns toward the new rules (or lack thereof) regarding name, image, and likeness usage within the NCAA. What is it? Why is it happening, and why does Reggie Bush have every reason in the world to be mad? What are some of the ways it’s being utilized? The headline of the week doubles down on Bobby Bonilla day.07:55 – Hector Santiago caught with a sticky glove, first in MLB under new rules13:39 – Casual Astros fan loses mind, one week after an 11 game win streak16:40 – Astros snubbed for All-Star starting roster; the case for Carlos Correa21:37 – Get off Jake Odorizzi’s back25:14 – What is NIL?43:57 – Headline of the week
