Daniel Kalwhite And Mitch Trubisky Make Love To Travis’s Mother

Daniel Kalwhite, John Papageorgiou and Brian Bolte say hi to Travis’s mom.

The Papa’s Football Podcast bravely, fiercely and gorgeously struts into week six of the NFL season with special guest Daniel Kalwhite. We talk Mitch Trubisky’s Bears debut, Cam Newton getting in hot water for making a comment perceived by many to be sexist, Redskins wide receiver Terrelle Pryor claiming he was called something worse than a sexist remark in Kansas City, Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster getting caught doing coke on camera and Adrian Peterson getting his walking papers to the Arizona Cardinals. It’s so jam packed that we had to spend the entire episode talking about having sex with Travis’s mom.

One For You Dallas Cowboy Fans (Ugh) (Ft. Jay Sank)

Charles Haley, the only Dallas Cowboy worthy of respect and the Last Naked Warrior

For those of you that don’t know the origin of the term “The Last Naked Warrior,” click here and feast your eyes.

Guys, before I introduce the show, I want you to know that there are indeed new episodes of Papa’s Football Podcast being created. They’re getting uploaded to the main Papa’s Basement YouTube channel and *gasp* are video-centric in nature (meaning we didn’t just set up a webcam to record a podcast’s production). We will get the regular podcast uploads going soon, but I wanted to give you the heads-up to go there in the meantime for all new content.

I hate the Dallas Cowboys, but I love comedian Jay Sank. And he loves Dallas. So, much like a boyfriend taking his chick to see any number of godawful films, Brian Bolte and I let Jeff Cowboy up the show a little. This one was recorded during the offseason, so it’s more of a general reminiscence of the Cowboys’ glory years + a tentative hope that their 2016 wasn’t a fluke, but there’s enough in there for everyone to keep you happy. SO LISTEN AND SHARE DAMMIT.

It’s back! Papa’s Football Podcast returns with its first broadcast of the 2017 NFL season. Brian Bolte and I are joined by comedian Travis Dorward as we broadcast live from Summers Restaurant in Arlington, VA. We talk about how we suffered through the most painful Super Bowl ever (unless you’re a godless Patriots fan) and other offseason news. But, mostly, we just talked about funny things, because there are 50000000 fucking sports shows out there and who needs to hear yet another analysis that ultimately proves to be bullshit anyhow?

Comedian Dom Grayer Talks Week 7 NFL – Papa’s Football Podcast

Dom Grayer is the guy in the middle who named isn't Brian Bolte or Pete Maybe.

Last night we had a great time in studio with comedian Dom Grayer (a tragically loyal Browns fan) talking about week seven’s NFL action. It was another week for the league to forget about, with the Seahawks and Cardinals playing to an ugly 6-6 tie on Sunday night, a Roethlisberger-less Steelers falling to the Patriots in Pittsburgh and Drew Brees putting up 21 points only to lose because the Saints’ couldn’t stop a determined chihuahua. Somehow, we still manage to make this crap NFL season funny, so enjoy the episode and give Dom a follow on Twitter – @Dominie18. Listen to the episode below and watch video of us in studio as we recorded it live here.

How The Cowboys Might Still Implode, Comedian Pete McCorvey – Papa’s Football Podcast Week 6

pete-mccorvey-comedian

For those of us sane, God-fearing, good people that hate the Cowboys, this week didn’t offer much to hang our (non-cowboy) hats on: The squad managed to dismantle the floundering Green Bay Packers, with their offensive line, rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. But there is hope for us yet! And I detail exactly what that is in the newest episode of Papa’s Football Podcast, featuring a call from comedian Pete McCovey. And remember: Every time you share this post, a nerve in the spines of Dallas’ offensive line tweaks.

Comedian Corky “Knievel” McDonnell Calls In

Question one: What's it like to be a fan of a team that doesn't use your hopes and dreams as a bedpan?

Question one: What’s it like to be a fan of a team that doesn’t use your hopes and dreams as a bedpan?

Corky “Knievel” McDonnell is a gifted comedian and improv performer based in Sacramento, California who happens to be a Seahawks fan. As a Redskins fan, I explore the parallels the two teams have enjoyed over the past decade, with the Redskins in essence being the losing version of the Seahawks. Corky talks Russell Wilson’s marriage to Ciara, what life is like after Marshawn Lynch and if he gives a damn about a resurgent Rams squad, as well as some stage time he shared with Don Geronimo (all roads lead to Geronimo if I can make them) on the latest Papa’s Football Podcast.

Rex Ryan Is A Disaster — Papa’s Football Podcast Week 2

I’m a Washington Redskins fan, born and raised. So I know dumpster fires. And in Buffalo, the Bills have a dumpster fire burning. Rex Ryan is a coach whose time in the NFL has come to a close. It was all fun and games when his mouth was full of toes and Sanchez was taking them to the AFC Championship two years in a row. Sadly, those days are long gone. We also dissect the rest of the week’s news, including the fact that Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson might have played their last games as Vikings.

RG3 Getting Divorced, Disintegrated — Papa’s Football Podcast Week 1

"I am sitting next to you thinking about how I plan to leave you and the fetus gestating inside you. And you don't even know it. Haha!"

“I am sitting next to you thinking about how I plan to leave you and the fetus gestating inside you. And you don’t even know it. Haha!”

Redskins fans are very well versed in the highs and lows of RG3 and all he brings to the table. And yet, as I watched his Browns debut, I found myself angry all over again. The unnecessary hit taking. The constant completions for one yard gains. It was all so familiar. And, of course, who can forget RG3’s possible Browns finale, not even 60 minutes in to his debut?

Brian Bolte and I talk about RG3’s debut and pending divorce, Bill Belichick not getting enough credit as someone who can make any quarterback good (well, except maybe the guy this episode is about), and how the league’s rookie QBs looked in their debuts this week. It’s a great new Papa’s Football Podcast, and if you like comedy, please share it on Twitter, Facebook and whatever other social media services are out there that I’m not even aware of because I’m 35 and can only handle so much now.

Aaron Rodgers Is The King Of The Hail Mary

Yes, they lost. But damn if the Green Bay Packers – Arizona Cardinals game wasn’t an all-time great. Listen to us talk the entire Divisional Round, pray that Peyton Manning doesn’t die next week, and have a conversation like you and your friends would about football. No, that doesn’t mean we get drunk and ramble like every other podcast out there. But we sure do swear a bunch.

Lovie Smith Fired, College Football Screws Up Its NYE Playoffs

Lovie Smith Fired

Just kidding, Lovie got fired a few hours after we recorded this. But we were able to talk about the bloodbath that is Black Monday, including the firings of Jim Tomsula, Tom Coughlin and Mike Pettine. Between that, some (admittedly cursory, but hopefully humorous) playoff analysis, we have the NFL side of things covered.

The first half of the show actually dives into what a colossal fuckup college football had on its hands with an attempt to shoehorn its two playoff games into New Year’s Eve. Ratings stank, everyone hated it, and now everyone is hoping that it doesn’t happen again. Oh, and I mock the millions of bowls because, let’s admit it, there are about 50 too man and they all have ghoulishly commercial names that impart literally zero emotion upon anyone. (Please let’s just cut to the chase and get to the Bang Bros Bowl sooner than later.)

Did I mention we saved the best for last? Because we did. In the show’s last five minutes, two straight (I swear all those websites were from someone else using my computer) men and one straight woman pick which NFL player’s penis they would be most fascinated to see. Fuck ESPN, you won’t see that shit after MNF anytime soon.
