Ep 125: Lamar Jackson, QB1 (w/@FourVerts)

Welcome to episode 125: Lamar Jackson, QB1 (w/@FourVerts)

This week, we’re once again joined by Setting The Edge’s own Charles McDonald (@FourVerts). We talked to the young gawd about a few things, namely: why his beloved Falcons stink so soon after getting to the Super Bowl, why it is that some people (cough *Matt Miller* cough) rate Wyoming QB Josh Allen over football wunderkind Lamar Jackson, AND how he came to be rooting for the baseball team in America’s greatest city during this year’s World Series.

In addition to that wonderful goodness, Cha and Obes discussed the recent allegations of sexual assault by Kevin Spacey. In light of the accusations against him, he came out of the closet. What does it all mean? A lot, to be honest.

Last, but certainly not least, the Houston Astros are a win away from making Obes look like a prophet. Is this shit really about to happen? Also, the Texans made a bombshell trade with the Seattle Seahawks, was it a good one?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Welcome to episode 124: The Robert Horry World Series

TCS resident genius/philosopher/all-around dope person Kashann Kilson (@KashannKilson) is back to discuss the week that was in Trump-related hysteria. More specifically, what happened in Niger and why is Trump fighting with Congressional Representative Frederica Wilson over what he did or did not say in a phone call?

We then dive into this week’s Sports Zone to look at the Houston Astros run to the World Series and what that could mean to a Houston city that’s long overdue for a champion.

Anthem

Welcome to episode 122: Who Cares About the Anthem?

Tyler’s back! This week Trill Withers himself (@TylerIAm) discusses why he feels the NBA, NFL, and all other American professional sports leagues should get rid of their draft systems. We all then take turns proposing what would make a better system and why a draft only rewards poor team management.
Then, Obes and Cha ask Tyler a more existential question, what happens when you get exactly what you want out of life but it doesn’t make you happy?
All that plus Trump vs the NFL (really sick of this guy) and why the NBA is better.

Your Favorite Film is Trash: Menace II Society

By Jonathan Spruill

The Hughes Brothers’ iconic 1993 film Menace II Society was the darling of that year’s Cannes Film Festival. The gritty tale follows Caine Lawson, a recent high school graduate and felonious resident of Los Angeles’s infamous Jordan Downs housing projects. The picture was a critical and commercial success, recouping its three million dollar budget nine times over and joining the gangster film canon as well as the cult subgenre known as the Hood Classic. It even won the Best Movie award at the 1994 MTV Movie awards, beating out Oscar winnning pictures Schindler’s List and Philadelphia.
