Denying the Magic
Sklarbro Country #119 November 2, 2012
Pete Holmes returns to the calming shores to make it weird on today’s Sklarbro Country! Pete joins Randy & Jason for some takes which include Keith Levasseur completing the Baltimore Marathon in flip flops and a flight attendant suing Magic Johnson for firing her for being 7 minutes late. Pete then catches up with the Sklars by talking about how his podcast You Made It Weird has drastically changed the way he performs stand-up on the road, his recent Twitter back and forth with Marc Maron, and gets into a deep discussion about the connection between religion and sports. That’s not all, we get into some Quick Hits involving skier Manny Osborne-Paradis injuring himself after being dragged by a party bus, England accusing Romania of cheating at World Angling Championships by using secret bait, and 19-year-old Bladimir Barreto failing to jump over a car to impress college recruiters. Plus, we get all Gumbly with it as we call up Bryant Gumbel who tells us how he will take over as commissioner of the NBA.
