    One can only hope by the time you are listening to this episode that Ted Phillips, Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy have all resigned out of shame. Or someone found incriminating photos of all three of them at a local farm. It's long past time to burn it all down. Dan Doinks was on the scene as the Bears lose to a Lamar Jackson-less Baltimore Ravens squad. How did it feel to hear "Fire Matt Nagy" chants with your own ears at Soldier Field, Dan? The only thing that could have made that loss worse was a JF1 injury, so of course he did, why not, what is the point of being a Bears fan anymore. Anywho, we'll make it weird as always. Hey, at least the Bulls are amazing ... as are the Gray Balls. 0:00 - 03:30 - Our first Christmas-y song of the season as Daughter of Bill Doinks and Bill Doinks present to you a custom-build version of Joni Mitchell's "River," with the editing stylings of Coach Cuse putting the finishing touches on our latest tune. 03:30 - 05:02 - What's on tap tonight? 05:02 - 13:17 - Justin Fields is Gold. Our guy suffered some bruised ribs after a tough first half. We blame Matt Nagy because why not, though this wasn't JF1's best appearance. 13:17 - 56:47 - Bears-Ravens review, Bears-Lions preview, NFL nuggets. Just a lot to cover here but it goes off the rails. Do not let Ryan Pace hire his third coach, bottom line. 56:47 - 68:59 - Bears Fantasy Corner.

The weirdest yet, we dive deep into a special suburban appearance by Cairo Santos as well as expert Everton nuggets during Toffees Corner. 111:01 - 119:06 - B1G Minute. The Gophers can play spoiler. The Illini need a win against Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats. 119:06 - 135:14 - Gray Balls. Will this 35+ intramural squad ever lose again? I doubt it.

America's favorite 35+ intramural basketball team is back to defend their (consolation) championship in the western suburbs of Chicago.
