00 – Hey everyone! Welcome back! “y’know from last week”

Jimmy might be having an allergic reaction to some nuts.

Sarah Calonna is coming in soon.

We got mail!

Jimmy thinks it dropped 20 degrees and started raining between his walk from the car to the door. It was sunny when he parked.

Jimmy really enjoyed Big Hero Six. Thought it got a little redundant in the middle but still liked it. Matt thought a little more time with the robot would have been good.

Jimmy opened the mail and it is “the thing”

It’s artwork of the catchphrases from the season 15 intro.  We’re gonna frame it and hang it up here in the studio.

05 – Thanks Alex Robinson!  Matt wants the next one to be here faster.

Jimmy wants Matt to be more appreciative of our fans.

I got 2600 in Threes. I suck at it.

Jimmy talks fantasy baseball.

10 – He panicked after he picked his keepers.  None of this makes any sense to me. You’re on your own.

Jimmy got a new pillow and had a great sleep.

Jimmy reminds us that you want to pick the best players per Cliff Floyd. You also want them to be healthy.

Welcome in!

Jimmy’s got a question for everyone.

He shows off a water bottle. We all understand what it is.

15 – The bottle

appleJimmy keeps getting shocked.

Talk about apple fuckin’

Talking about fluid measurements.

20 – How much water is too much?

The guys talk about what foods don’t have water.

Water intoxication

“Well I’m using crab apples.”

25 – Jimmy wants to ask Sarah Colonna about the thermos.

Our guest is here!

The guys talk water containers.

Jimmy did not like the phrase “Dropped a couple of clicks.”

Sarah has no idea what the counter does.

144 ounces is 1.125 gallons.

If you’re not thirsty don’t drink!

Jimmy got a sandwich and chicken from Dominos. He enjoyed it. The sandwich is as good as the pizza is bad.

Jon Hamm with a ham sandwich.

In studio notes by NO ONE because Tony Thaxton sat in for Garon and I have no notes from him. Tony Thaxton: incredible drummer. Terrible Never Not Funny note-taker. If I have time and/or interest, I (Darryl) might eventually do the show notes for this episode.

Meanwhile, enjoy this photo of Jon Hamm holding a ham sandwich.
