This episode is “13A” because of triskaidekaphobia (fear of the number 13). Dabroze discuss the retirement of Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck and other early retirements. For Jon’s Dog Story, he urges Preventive Veterinary Care, especially for older dogs. Jon was in Detroit over the Labor Day holiday weekend, and imparts many informative stories, but it’s not the real reason why there was no show last week. That shall remain a mystery.
One of the most interesting places Jon visited was the Henry Ford Museum. It was much more than just the history of Ford’s cars. There were models of different forms of transportation back to the horse-and-buggy era. There was the original Lincoln Continental in which JFK was assassinated. And the bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat during the Civil Rights struggle.
Also in the Follow-Ups, Jon announces that Tommy Hawk was named NFL Mascot of the Year. Jeri briefs us on a great environmental story. A huge formation of pumice was spotted in the Pacific Ocean, making its way toward Australia. Scientists say it will bring millions of new coral to the Great Barrier Reef.
Jon gives us the story of Alligator Hunter Frank Robb’s new love interest. He was seen with her at a Cubs game. He says he’s considering shaving his beard. We think he’d better if he wants to keep her. Check out his picture. He has a most oddly-shaped, unkempt, and unruly beard. Jeri offered some beard-shaping and mustache-trimming tips.
When Andrew Luck announced his retirement, after years of debilitating injuries, fans booed him and threw food at him. Jon recounts Luck’s many injuries. There is also a link to other shocking early retirements in sports. Offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger shares the harrowing story of his ongoing traumatic injuries, in support of Andrew Luck’s decision to retire. He doesn’t blame him one bit.
The Brothers wonder why fans expect their players to fight to the death, like some Roman gladiator. Jeri said that’s why he didn’t go pro. We can just imagine Jon’s reaction to that.
I know the real reason why there was no show last week, but I’ll never tell. Suffice it to say that Dabroze worked diligently, and delivered an informative (and hilarious) show.
