Rog and Davo relive the biblical smiting of Liverpool 4 Everton 0, celebrate Manchester City, and wish guest Rebecca Lowe an Olympic Godspeed.
Listen to this podcast here.
Best part of Rog’s derby experience? Botulism.

How we wish there was a sequel to Being: Liverpool.
Ahead of the Derby… GFOP @zane_rm sent in this @buzzFeed image of Everton fans in 1927. Rog is the one with the sign.
The Battle for Third and Fourth is now officially under way. On Monday, Manchester United and their ragtag ensemble wrapped up their 20th league title in impressive fashion (move over, Don Nelson, the mad scientist officially resides at Old Trafford). Still, few headlines were devoted to Sir Alex & Co.’s accomplishment. Earlier in the weekend, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez once again proved there was still plenty of crazy left in England’s top flight when he gnawed on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in the course of a 2-2 draw. In this week’s pod, Michael and Roger review the implications for Liverpool and their American owners as well as what’s in store for Suarez’s 72 pearly whites.
The Men in Blazers revel, as always, in their weekly telegrams from GFOPs across these fine lands, inquiring about footballers’ peculiar sweating habits and how to best consume a midgame pint or five, and end the pod with breaking news about the Men in Blazers National Team. Courage.
From GFOP Matt Golubieski, who writes:
I thought you guys might enjoy this program we found in my grandfather’s old things from 1948. Apparently I wasn’t the first in my family to enjoy watching soccer over here.
Another reason to love/hate Liverpool. Lana del Ray pictured here with Steven Gerrard.
From GFOP @michaeljowardjr: Everton’s Tony Hibbert and Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard as kids.
From GFOP Matthew John Cressler, a photo entitled “My daughter reacts to the shock of Jordan Henderson scoring.”
Matt writes: “Even in the midst of her exuberance, you can see the disbelief deep in her eyes. “Wait, that was Jordan HENDERSON?!”We are calling Child Services Matt.
