6 Bs and a P: We Are Either Coming Strong Or We Are Not Coming At All – Episode 69

Oh yeah… Super Bowl…

This podcast features terrible language regularly. Hot off the press for Super Bowl Sunday…It’s the season finale! The Browns finish 1-15, but the 6b1p crew finds a way to maybe, maybe, maybe find a little hope. They discuss the season, look for hope, avoid the topic of football, and took too long to edit so at least a half dozen references will be out of date nonsense. Thanks to Wiebe for editing this one, we will see you for episode 70 right around the draft (a.k.a. Our Super Bowl). Go Browns!

6 Bs and a P: Everyone Hates Collingsworth – Episode 68


Happy Holidays! We told you it would not be as long of a wait for the next episode of 6 Bs and a P, Dave. This is a quick one but packs all the hard hitting laughs and cutthroat analysis you have come to expect from 6 Bs and a P. On Episode 68 we mostly go live to Brian watching the Browns/Bengals game with the one and only Miles Down of Athens, Ohio. They discuss being fans of Ohio football teams, Tim Krumrie, beer, why the Browns might be bad, and how despite rooting for different teams we all hate Cris Collingsworth and his stupid face just the same. Go 49ers!

6 Bs and a P – The Terrible Hole – Episode 67


Sorry it’s been so long. The Browns gave up and so did we for a bit, but we are back now and that is all that matters. The Browns may be 0-12 but the 6b1p crew give you a solid hour of funny non-Browns things and accidental forward thinking analysis. Brian, Ian, and Wiebe missed some important weeks: Trump is gonna be the president next year and Cleveland lost the World Series. They cover such questions as: What is the coldest you have ever been? Are there any good players on this team? Does Jordan Cameron listen to the Wu-Tang Clan? Take a listen and tell your friends… Go Browns!
