So we got drunk at a Mets game last week. They lost. We recorded banter.
Honestly, we talk about enough bullshit with no real direction that I should probably give you some sort of road map but absolutely have no desire to be of such assistance. You'll love it all the same.
Appearances from, as usual, the Barrister
and the Apologist
, and guest spots from our friend who is a Red Sox fan and my buddy JB who split sometime in the 7th inning. Musical interludes from Jefferson Airplane, The Beastie Boys, Ozomatli, Walk the Moon and Radiohead.
Oh, and we talk about my homie Rabbi Darkside
(from Buffalo, by way of Brooklyn) who just came out with an album. Order that shit on iTunes now!

This is as belated as we've been in a while. Maybe the dad among us shouldn't promise to edit anymore, particularly on a noght of such heavy drinking. With esteemed Deeg colleague Monsieur Boner Shorts in town, things got weird.
I won't bother recapping it, except to say this was recorded the night of Tuesday, March 26th, in the midst of Sabres, Knicks, USMNT, Clippers/Mavs and shots of whiskey. Also, the Scizz was there, so if you love the soft tones of his Franklinville accent, make sure to join in the fun with a download.

The Barrister and The Apologist
I don't even care that the title of this episode rips off 'Friends' - it's accurate. We're mean in this one. Well, really only with respect to certain creepy members of a certain local newspaper's sports staff.
Recorded during and after the Sabres' most recent game - a win?!?? - against the Maple Leaves of Toronto, we talk plenty about the Sabres, how sad we are about the lack of silver linings this season, and then whistfully predict the inevitable Cup run. Oh, and Joe from Buffalo Wins makes a cameo to talk about striking out with the smokeshow bartender at Gleason's, further adding to the list of things we'll make fun of him about when he returns to Twitter on Easter.
Musical additions by the way of Jefferson Airplane, Homeboy Sandman and Kasabian.

The Barrister and The Apologist
Hello fans of our infamous podcast! We were back at the local watering hole for beers, whiskey, a healthy helping of cigarettes and some Sabres hockey. The Buffalo Hockey Swords Team obliged, well, sort of. They got a point at least.

What an asshole.
El Barristo and Aps
Hey internet friends! The Sabres are mighty terrible, having dropped a snoozer to the East's worst team (actually the Sabres are now that), yet here we are to deconstruct the shit show and drink the beers.
This one, predictably, devolves into a #FireLindy party because, well, that's all we got. Prove us wrong, Sabres. Please prove us wrong. You won't.
As always, our hot takes are set against the noises of New York City and the inevitable guy wearing really nice shoes and looking for change.

Apologist and Barrister, feat. The Continental
Oh dear. Craft beers. Whiskey. Vanishing dignity.
You may be aware that Apologist and I recently rendez-vous'd (not a word) for the Bills game Thursday night, using the time out at the bar as a perfect opportunity to revive the little-known Legal Limit podcast franchise. You also may be aware that new-to-the-Deeg Continental - of Smarten Up! mailbag fame - joined us, making her podcast debut.
You probably wouldn't have predicted this level of shit show, though. Good good, we are terrible. Actually, really, just the Barrister. He was most definitely over the legal limit, right guys? ... I'll show myself out.
We talk Bills/Dolphins, of course, but also take potshots at Al Gore, celebrate the Knicks move to 6-0 against the Spurs, talk about how the NBA may pick up disgruntled hockey fans during the lockout, commiserate Ryan Fitzpatrick's role in Bills franchise history, laugh about blunts and guns, and then bump into some Hurricane Sandy refugee Chicago Bears fans who happen to also love the Miami Heat. I'd claim it all makes sense in the end, but it most surely does not. Luckily, I'm pretty sure it's about what you've all come to expect from this embarrassment of a website.
Musical interludes include Jefferson Airplane, Oddisee, Bob Dylan and The Beastie Boys.

The Barrister and The Apologist
Well, that game last night sure was a treat wasn't it? Almost don't quite believe it happened, a feeling certainly encouraged by the multiple beers and shots and hookers and... crap. Scratch that.
Emboldened by another week beginning with the Sabres fighting for a playoff spot - enough to get us excited, but not quite optimistic - the Apologist and I headed back to Kelly's Sports Bar in the East Village to catch the game. And the team certainly rewarded us with a stellar effort en route to their 7-3 win over the Lightning. You know them - the team that sucks harder than we do, following a year that saw them go to the Eastern Conference Finals, who appear to have one of the most precarious goaltending situations in the sport. Those 50 goals from Stamkos don't mean shit when you have a bag of bratwursts between the pipes.
Aaaaanyway, on to the reason for this post, which is to present the next episode of Aps and Barrister Present the Legal Limit! This week's episode, far more timely than prior Legal Limit installments, was recorded in two segments during the second intermission and immediately after the game. Bizarrely, with the team playing so well, we didn't have too much to dwell on and/or rant about, so we also took some time to discuss the upcoming baseball season, as well as a little bit of basketball (giving Apologist some solace as Yachter and Scizz continue to inexplicably black ball him from recording The Apostles of Bob). Musical interludes include "Serenade" by Steve Miller Band, and a cover of "Psycho Killer" by Moxy Früvous. The Underground mario theme also makes an appearance, because, well, WE GOT MARIO WILLIAMS AND WE'RE ALL STILL STUPID EXCITED.

The Apologist and The Barrister (feat. Megsie & the Yachtsman)
Well folks, we've never claimed to be timely in our posting of audio opinion material here at the Deeg, and this is no different. If you want timeliness of our opinions, start paying us money and we'll get right on that.
Monday night (yes, the Monday night that is nearly a week ago at this point), fresh off my week in Boston for another Bar Exam (Bad Decision #1), I was eager to convince Apologist to join be in a Sabres-Jets rendezbooze at Kelly's Sports Bar of Lower East Side fame (Bad Decision #2). Ever willing to please (aHEM!), Aps got his shift covered at work and we were a go for another night of hockey-related bad decision-making. Along for the ride was Yachter who, while typically unwilling to risk exposure to all sorts of bacteria and viruses at Kelly's, was suddenly down to cheer our Sabres on to that 8th place spot in the East (Bad Decision #3).
This will make sense after you hear this instant classic
If you've read this site for any significant period of time, you are hopefully somewhat aware that the Apologist and I enjoy linking up for Sabres games (and often without our two other Brothers in Deeg), and we stupidly tend to think highly enough of ourselves to conclude that it is a good idea to do an on-the-spot streetcast, often times while Aps enjoys an intermission cigarette and more often while we're both stumbling over prepositional phrases with a delicate touch that only drunken fools can.
Well, belated as this post may be (yet another sad symptom of the busy-ness of our non-Deeg lives), last Tuesday was no exception as we watched the Sabres prevailed over the Islanders. As per usual, we watched the game at Kelly's Sports Bar on Avenue A in Manhattan, and as usual we shifted prominently between making solid, well-reasoned arguments, and drunkenly mumbling about some supposed point of interest. However, unlike other StreetCasts, we were joined by some "friends on the street" - aka our friend Matt, who happened to walk by during our first segment, and later on a drunken, cracked out homeless guy who interrupts us at about the 18:50 mark, inspiring a musical interlude of "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane. Seriously, people, even if you think that Aps and I are big idiots (and kudos to you for coming to that ever-so-obvious conclusion!), you need to listen to the five or so minutes that this guy talks to us about topics that are simply to amazing and incoherent to describe.
