Mark doesn't go to too many St. Louis Cardinals games at all. But he usually enjoys himself whenever the opportunity presents itself. That is until this latest time. Mark explains how his simple decision to grab a hot dog turned into missing an inning and a half of a game, and waste 25 minutes of his life. This also leads to Producer Bobby explaining his backgroudn from working with the organization and dropping knowledge about special food tickets that exist.
Then the two discuss the story about Chris Long and his Rams teammate deciding to go undercover for ESPN as homeless people for a couple days. It really is an eye opening situation and makes these two pro athletes change their tune quickly. SPOILER ALERT, they do something....and Producer Bobby explains it in the show.
Finally its out in the open. Bruce Jenner has become Caitlyn Jenner and our fine host don't even care. Mark is pissed that so many people care at all and keep discussing it and arguing about it. And of course we found ANOTHER moron that claims tea party and conservatism as they try to fight the laws of our land while exercising their freedoms in an AIRPORT while carrying a loaded AR-15 around in the terminal. Needless to say it didn't go well and he took his verbal lashings but these decisions are becoming harmful to our culture.

So the year of 2015 starts off on a sobering note. Stuart Scott, the great sportsanchor of ESPN, passes away from cancer at the age of 49. So Andy Echele jumps onto the show to discuss this. The guys discuss what Stuart Scott meant to them and how the world of ESPN styled sportscasting goes. Including Andy breaking out his old school phrase he used for Combat Showcase.
Next Mark goes on one of his famous rants about Walmart and the inability of our society to learn from simple things and act accordingly. Evidently they don't ptu enough energy drinks of a certain style in the local Walmart cooler cases and this sends Mark on a tirade about the cooler cases and other places/situations that no one thinks about until after the fact.
Finally the crew gets into a discussion about how Mark is noticing more people since the Ferguson riots complaining about "White Privilege" and what it means to three white people who could potentially be accused of it at moments notice. Also, Mark discusses his some of his stereotype pet peeves and who should, or shouldn't, be allowed to do certain things. This brings out everyone throwing their issues about many people out in the open. So sit back, turn on the laptop, bring up your spreadsheet and listen to the newest epsisode of The Q.
