Episode 89 – Downtown Train to NY Sports

The Hip and Lip burst in with the BREAK of the news of Timothy Tebow’s retirement from the NY Mets!  The obligatory breakdown of the terrible Super Bowl includes a little belittling of Taum’s nickname and America turning off their TVs at a rate not seen in 50 years!  The boys welcome the news of a return to fans to NY sports venues with the Hip pondering what the market will be for live sports.  No H & L episode of course would be complete without a reference to Kyle Anderson, aka SLOWMO!  The most hipster portion of the NBA segment might just be the Hip’s fawning over Brandon Ingram’s lanky appendages and uncanny ability to knock down mid-rangers.  Mixing in some play by play of Gary Trent Jr. 3 pointers, or the rich man’s Duncan Robinson (we’ll explain later), H & L mute their excitement of the NCAA tournament due to the mixing of Covid protocols and college kids.  After a casual reference to the local hockey teams, the HMOZ takes the boys back to a landmark from their youth and how it relates to the first African-American NHL player.  The BRAND SPANKING new segment “Hipster Cover of the Week” takes you on a downtown train to the creamy and JREAMy Hipster Beer of the Week!

Episode 88 – Golden Tainted Love

The Hip and the Lip’s triumphant return (4th or 5th?) via Zoom and just in time for…a complete breakdown of the Chris Boucher situation north of the border!  Wait…were you expecting a Taum Brady mention?  Not until the conclusion of the laborious introduction featuring Gary Trent Jr. and the Hip’s commentary on the CDC and Doctah Fauci telling America, “No Superspreader Super Bowl Parties!”  Shifting past the Hip’s thoughts on mask wearing or lack thereof amongst our icons in the booth and studios of Fox and TNT, the Lip gives the Hip comfort that the employees of the copious strip joints in Tampa will all be masked up for the occasion!  Since both H & L have had enough of Taum Brady and the typical, cliched Super Bowl analysis, the Hip says, “Kansas City landslide,” the Lip retorts, “KC offensive line yada yada,” – next!  The episode crescendos with the Hip’s recounting of a Colin Cowherd interview and an (inadvertent?) stating of the name Bill Belichick (huh?) and some NBA jargon (Point-Center!).  The Hip and Lip’s return is HMOZ in of itself but how about a cool $50 from Draftkings if you wager on a single TD in Super Bowl LV (withdrawal restrictions apply)!  Special guest in the form of a Baby Hip and a little music mind blow from the Hip with some “Tainted” cover songs!
