Adam opens the show with a holiday themed intro from Dawson and Lynch and his own comments aimed at the listeners.

BB plays the USC fight song as the #TopDrop and Adam talks about Drew being forced to root for UCLA due to his wife’s affiliation despite him going to medical school there.

Adam talks about the incident that inspired the ‘Bringing Home the Bacon’ incident and BB has a lot of confirmation noises and is really engaged but it feels kinda false, odd flow or maybe it’s his mic.


Adam is talking about Sonny getting sucked into a few rose bowl games and ended up rooting for UCLA, BB keeps talking about uniforms and it’s again very odd sounding, he sounds like he did on the old radio show almost.

Adam talks about tape being a durable good to him a child and BB keeps commenting after every word Adam makes, what is he doing.

BB says he must see a drunk Dr. Drew someday and Adam says it’s like having a slice of cake with Richard Simmons, it feels like a tacit ok for drinking.


Gary gets on mic to confirm how great it is and Adam is telling them about getting quietly drunk with Drew over the weekend, he says when someone keeps pouring it into your glass is the best way to get hammered without knowing it.

BB is now asking if Drew rooting for UCLA isn’t the ultimate form of pussy whipped, is BB suffering a cold and now being extra focused on chiming in more, hmmm?

Adam is sharing his theory on Jewish guys being fans of Bruce Springsteen and he compares his love for John Hiatt and her love for Bruce to how Drew and his wife could root for different teams.


Adam is talking about Lynette’s nap in one of the Pinsky kids’ rooms, Adam says that Drew is heavy handed and they killed the bottle of Mangria, wow!

Adam explains how he pulled them out of the garbage can and shook them off, someone then went and took them out of the sink and put them all in the trash again, he had to then take them and hide them, and he jokes about burring them in the yard like a squirrel.

Adam is sharing how his family doesn’t do leftovers and BB is over the top chiming in, he does have a cold and he’s trying extra to be part of the show, relax man, chill! This is difficult to listen to, I can’t quite hear Adam finish a thought and I love BB.

Adam is going over their exchange, funny shouting impression of them talking through walls/rooms.

Adam is killing this impression/riff as this old relative bringing and old man as his guest, BB feels badly about bringing this up and Adam is now trying to estimate the commute and he thinks an extra hour is likely Gina guesses too and BB reveals his 1:43 arrival time.
