Baconsale Episode 49: Do You Even Sport, Bro?

What happens when you quiz a couple of movie geeks on sports trivia? You’re about to find out. It’s time for you to feel like a champion compared to Kent and Joel as they fumble around for the answers to a relatively simple sport-themed quiz created by our returning special guest, Mark. Jacob is there, too, as the smug scorekeeper who pretends that he knows all of the answers.

Press play and get your ringside seats, because our gloves are off, there are no holds barred and it comes down to the wire (those are sporty terms, right?) on this athletically challenged episode of Baconsale!

Also, this is your last chance to donate to the very worthy cause of sending Baconsale to meet Kate Beckinsale! https://www.gofundme.com/baconsale

    I don’t have words for this podcast, it’s hilarious. So many cringing answers. You guys get so confident and your answers are just… oh man.. hahaha Also Big-12 is a better conference than the Pac-12?!…. Freakin’ cougar fans… Just bitter you’re stuck in independence, and quite possibly headed back to the Mountain West in the next 5 years. And MLS not a professional sport? A Utahn is saying that? ReAl Salt Lake is the most successful sports team that’s based in Utah and you’re saying they don’t play a professional sport? Ugh. You guys brought on a baseball loving Cougar fan… Booooo…. hahaha If Mark hadn’t started with Red-Butted Americans I might have voted for snow globe. Good job Mark! Despite our differences of opinion he did a good job. I still don’t get what the final score was but it was good.

      If I understood sports, I would have a rebuttal for your comment. However, since I don’t, I’m just going to say that I’m glad you enjoyed this episode!

        I did. I enjoy listening to you guys. Just moved from Utah to Michigan a month or so ago and I miss having chats over these kind of topics with my buddies all the time. Your podcasts have kind of replaced that for me so yeah, tell Jacob and Kent thanks for me.

      I think I did worse than both Kent and Joel.

        Perhaps, but you gained extra points for that summary. Very impressive! When you play along, you really play along!

    You should do a sports movie episode and then have sports trivia questions in between the movie reviews.

      That could be very similar to the most American movie episode.

        We could, but I don’t know how well Kent and Jacob would actually fare at that. ZING!
