It’s a mid-afternoon edition of The Flip Side, and it’s a quick episode. Something something about Galen having to “teach class” because he’s a “university professor.” Whatever.
The boys begin with Brian talking his weekend trip to Philadelphia and the Mütter Museum, where he saw (among other things) a 40-pound colon. True story. Galen fills Brian in on the sad state of Everton’s season, and Brian realizes he picked his new favorite soccer team poorly.
There are two main topics today. The first is Red Lobster’s secret Endless Shrimp menu. This begets a larger conversation about why certain restaurants have secret menus and which one would be the best (hint, it’s Taco Bell).
Then it’s on to The Athletic and the comments its founder made to the New York Times on Monday and the ensuing kerfuffle. The boys go beyond the internet outrage machine to talk about what it all means for the future of sports journalism.
