Bill Simmons and Cousin Sal spend way too much time breaking down their favorite prop bets for Sunday's game, with Sal eventually revealing his fourth-annual Gary Russell Memorial pick. After that, Grantland's David Jacoby comes on to update the Souper Bowl and argue about soup. That's right, football, gambling and soup! How can you NOT listen to this podcast???
Jalen and I decided that the Super Bowl is boring. Not, like, the game. We mean the lead-up to the game. Gronkowski is going to play, Eli is “elite,” and Bill Belichick is a great coach. Ho-freaking-hum. So instead of going over tired Super Bowl storylines, we dove right into the exciting NBA season. We talked about the Heat and how their depth is going to win them the East. We talked about how close the West was. We talked about Kobe and the Lakers' trouble on the road. And we talked about Dwight Howard because you really can’t say anything about the NBA without talking about Dwight Howard. We tried.
Oh yeah, we also talked about the Souper Bowl, which I am way more excited about than the Super Bowl.
