What happens when you take Buffalo Ex-Pats, now living in NYC and give them microphones? The trainwreck that is the Dear God, Why Us? Sports CrapTastiCast. An extension of the not-so award winning blog deargodwhyussports.com, we ramble on about all things Buffalo sports, beer, pop-culture and whatever else pops into our tiny brains. Toss in amazing producers and special guests and you are guaranteed* entertainment!
*No guarantees are made.
Episode 49: Keep Those Vapes in Your Pockets
We're back, babes. It was time.
So crack a beer or four and get the pregame started. Go Bills.
The Legal Limit - Episode 12: It's Been a Minute
Harts and Dubs are back on the mean streets of Manhattan. Intoxication and takes ensue. Come for the slurred speech, stay for the sounds of a garbage truck parked next to us.
Music by Chance the Rapper, DATA and DJ Shadow. Yeah you know the one.
Episode 48: Since I Left You
The boys are back. In this episode, with a delayed release due to Dubs being equal parts overworked and forgetful, The Outlander, The Commander and The Barrister gather from their disparate locations outside of WNY to discuss, in large measure, the value in recognizing expat stories when we discuss the City of Good Neighbors. We also make bad jokes, curse a bunch and talk about beer, the Sabres and awful sports media, as per protocol.
Music by Avalanches.
Episode 47: Omar Comin'
We recorded a podcast via Skype and our special guest was basically heading through a series of loud cocktail parties, PA announcements and ancient Pennsylvanian infrastructure. It was grand.
Topics discussed include the Bills starting QB spot being granted to His Magesty Tygod Taylor, the hilarity of the Washington Redsk..er... i mean Football Team, Russ Brandon being a snake, the late Al Davis and his weird looking son, Tim Graham's ethics in sports journalism, Eichel and Moulson shacking up, gooey prospect goodness on the horizon, the Bills' prospects at a 5-2 record, Tom Brady's hyperbaric chamber, Marvel gems, and MUCH MUCH MORE.
Seriously, this one is long. Apologies for the ambient noise but we're from the f*****g street, fam. It's all in the game.
Music by way of The Jambrones, The Roots, Beck, Matoma & Biggie, and Broken Bells.
Episode 46: Chasing Blood Alcohol and Making It Content
In this slightly (read: very) belated publication of the Buffalo sports podcast you love to hate, we give you a glimpse into the week the was 8 days ago - before James Harrison called his sons entitled pussies, before the Bills signed IK and Tyrod Taylor became a thing, before Paul Cambria stormed Bedenko's Facebook page and gave us a glimpse of the best defense attorney talent Buffalo has to offer. 'Twas a simpler time.
It's another long one. Take breaks if you need to, but come back so we can finish the job. It's Paul Olczak's first CrapTastiCast, after all, and we wanted to treat him right.
Music by way of The Jambrones, OK Go, EXGF, Disclosure, and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Some good, good shit in the episode, y'all.
Happy Endings with Barrister and Scizz! - Episode 5
Y'all, we recorded this four nights ago but then a whole hit load of life happened and f**k you for asking. But seriously. Work, a mass of yard work, summer hangouts and loads of Lagunitas chased by spliffs. Here we are.
It's the offseason of most things we talked about so nothing is all that out-of-date apart from some baseball talk - the Mets swept those Nationals shut the front door. Delightful. Life filled with delight.
Podcast featuring rants about Russ Brandon, Tom Brady, born-again Bills fans, Uber-less Buffalo, our plans for Week 1 tailgates and a few other things that I can't remember since I haven't actually listened to this and just hastily tossed in some musical selections without worrying about the propriety of taking on American Methodists, among others.
Good to be back, kids.
Music by way of Bleachers, Oddisee, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Priory.
