It's another five dollar idea episode of the podcast, where my friend Jon and I interrupt the sports discussion and talk really important real life issues, like a solution for guys who are stuck in women's clothing stores while their girl shops, how to get just sick enough to miss a few days of work, imagining a bar that plays reality shows only, and much more.

Eddie Maisonet joined me to talk about his sports writing career, DeAndre Jordan's dunk on Brandon Knight, how Sam Perkins somehow influenced both of us, the alternate jerseys of the Warriors and Thunder, how the Western Conference shapes up and why everyone should relax about Russell Westbrook.
The weird noise you hear in the background as Eddie is talking is me trying not to laugh.

Mark Trible drops by to chat about how he went from a philosophy major to a sportswriter, the joys of covering high school hoops, the Eagles, how Philadelphia feels about Andrew Bynum, how covering the Flyers changed him from a fan to an observer, and a really funny Andy Reid story.
