After taking a week off to watch the Super Bowl, The Knee Jerks are back, recording last night for tonight's download!
No guest tonight so Eno and Big Al could get caught up with the following: Super Bowl XLVII (as Eno wonders if Jim Harbaugh is TOO intense); the Lions release of Titus Young (no surprise), Kyle vanden Bosch (also no surprise) and Stephen Peterman (mild surprise); the rebuilding challenge in front of GM Martin Mayhew, and how far the team is from serious contention. Then it's the Tigers---specifically Jhonny Peralta being linked (possibly) to PED use, the effect of Felix Hernandez's huge contract on pitchers like Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, and the future of the team in general with so many (potentially) big contracts to dole out in the near future.
The show wraps up with discussion of the Tayshaun Prince/Austin Daye for Jose Calderon trade, Prince's legacy as a Piston, and the injury to big man Dre Drummond. The boys also talk some Big Ten hoops!
As usual, there is "Whose Birthday Is It?" (a box set of the TV series "Mannix" is at stake) and "Jerk of the Week." It all starts at 7pm ET HERE.
