This episode has been approved for all audiences. If you are old enough to play soccer in The Netherlands, or even Spain, you will enjoy this show. All potential streakers have been asked to clothe themselves and any professional boxers will be put in jail if they display profane gestures. Our guest is Brian Posehn, a father and honorary Juggalo, who discusses his two-year-old baby and shares the harrowing tales of his youthful indiscretions. Our hip young listeners will even get an educational rap if they listen long enough! So put down your gameboys and walkmen and pick up Sklarbro Country. Hey, it's better for kids than some charity golf tournaments!

Fans with tech skills - who among you will create a mashup trailer or film poster for Kevin Costner's post-apocalyptic baseball movie? Tagline, of course, must be: "If we rebuild it, they will come."

I don't think describing a town as 'throbbing' is ever a good idea.

The rap at the end was great.

Here's a pitch for Kevin Costner's next film: "The Game After Tomorrow." The plot would involve a minor league pitcher who was raised by American Indians, and who believes in the Mayan prophecy that the world will end in 2012. His life's goal is to pitch a perfect game before the end of the world happens just a few short months after he signs on to the team (the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, of course). His coach (played by Costner) recognizes the young pitcher's potential and tries to discourage the kid from asking to pitch every game by telling him that he has plenty of time to develop into a pitcher and could injure himself if he pitches too often. The kid warns Costner of the apocalypse, but Costner pays no attention and ignores the kid's suggestions to buy emergency provisions.

One fateful day, ominous weather reports playing in conveniently-placed background TVs indicate strange tornado warnings, given that it's Southern California. Of course, that's when the kid's pitching perfectly through the first 8 innings, when all of a sudden, tornadoes start coalescing and the earth starts rumbling as The Big One hits, and California starts crumbling around the Quakes' baseball game. The kid refuses to leave the mound, but with the teams and crowd running for their lives, he has no choice but to stop pitching. After the quaking stops, the kid realizes that he has to rescue the next three players in the opposing team's lineup and get them to step up to the plate at the remains of the stadium if he wants to complete his perfect game. Costner's family dies in the earthquake, and Costner realizes that he should have trusted the kid and bought more emergency protection, so he helps him on his quest, even as society crumbles around them.

Ideas for post-apocalyptic baseball movie titles:

Easy (Fall)out!

Triple Header (note: Kevin Costner's character has three heads)

Angels in the (Fall)outfield

The Bronx is Burnt

Just one minor point: Howard Cunningham belonged to the Leopard Lodge. I'm guessing the Leopards were never embroiled in any stripper scandals.
