Tonight! A "humble" Schwartz, a goofy ejection, PEDs and more!

The Jerks are actually on the air for a FOURTH STRAIGHT WEEK! Due to circumstances not always under our control, that hasn't happened for quite some time.

As usual, the plate is full.

We start with Lions coach Jim Schwartz, who actually used the H-word ("humbled") in discussing his personal reaction to last year's 4-12 season. We break down other quotes from The Schwartz's presser last week as the Lions kicked off another training camp. We also wondered aloud if the Lions are contenders or pretenders in 2013 (Eno uses the D-word in his assessment; care to guess what that is?).

The talk then turns to the NFL in general, and we decry the talk of an 18-game season, as injuries are already mounting in training camps around the league.

The Tigers then take center stage, particularly Sunday's ridiculous ejection of Miggy Cabrera by umpire Chad Fairchild. How ironic that "fair" and "child" are in that clown's name! The Jerks are less than thrilled with Fairchild's behavior. The Jerks also discuss the upcoming trade deadline (note: the trade for Astros closer Jose Veras had not been completed at the time of recording).

The Baseball Hall of Fame had its induction ceremonies last weekend, and no living players were celebrated. In fact, they were vilified by some current HOF members for their suspected use of PEDs. Eno quotes Bob Gibson, though, who admitted to being glad that he never had to make the decision whether to use PEDs or not in his day. Gibson doesn't think playing "Holier than thou" is very righteous.

All that and more, plus "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: a case of Schooner Tuna; do you remember what movie that is from?), "Jerk of the Week," and more plugs than an AC power strip!

It all starts at 7pm ET HERE!!
