The Hip and Lip EXPLOOOODE into a comprehensive and thorough breakdown of the huge upset perpetrated by the Phila….St. John’s Redstorm!! Yes the hottest team in NY sports and 158th best team in the country just took down both Duke and Villanova. They then take the obligatory dive into Supah Bowl 52 which the “Hip” calls thrilling after a ho-hum NFL season although the Lip has a slightly different perspective. They share his bewilderment over Malcolm Butler’s benching, marvel over the magnificence of Nick Foles, fawn over the mastery of Doug Pederson’s game planning in contrast to his hall of fame counterpart….all while debating the true motivation of the NFL’s “upholding” of Corey Clement’s touchdown. The Bowl thread culminates with Collinsworth’s use of “RPOOO” and the boys gently mocking the viewership decline of the game along with overall season ratings. The episode wraps up with the Hip pondering of the odd scheduling of conference tourneys at MSG, while the Lip gets in his latest 2 minute rant on a man whom he refers to as “The Worst in History.” Will the Lip back up such a statement? Stay tuned!
