Brandon Noble talks about being recruited to play football by Michigan and Penn State, and playing for the undefeated Rose Bowl champion Nittany Lions of 1994.
Clem’s BBQ , need we say more? Special guest Hannah Richardson and a visit from Pennsylvania College of Technology round out the hour of gluttony. The guys talk a little Wisconsin football and Mike gives away another Obligatory hat. Special thanks to Jersey Mike’s Subs of Mechanicsburg!
The guys enjoy the fruits of their corn chewing labor as they talk Iowa gaffes, facing the heavily-favored Wolverines, appreciating what you’ve got, and plenty of other nonsense. Mailman stays positive. Kevin joins him, at least for awhile.
The guys will do just about anything to avoid discussing the football team’s prospects heading into a sloppy mess against the hated Iowa Hawkeyes, including but not limited to, masticating mouthfuls of corn. On this Halloween episode of Obligatory, the only thing scarier than the holiday is Penn State’s clock management.
Sadness and beer and chocolate and sadness and more beer. Nothing matters and Kevin is sad…again. Penn College saves the day with a lesson on the finer points of chocolate consumption in an attempt to pick up the pieces after Penn State’s utterly disastrous, entirely indefensible collapse against Michigan State.
On this episode of Obligatory: The guys milk a horse. Need we say more? Mike the Mailman discovers a new favorite beverage courtesy of Annie and Dr. Kirk French. We welcome Dante Wong to the show, Kevin has a beer with Josh Davies at Happy Valley Brewing Company and the guys encourage the Nittany Lions to#WinOneForKevin.
Expectations are a hell of a thing. Kevin is sad post OSU loss and can’t bear to talk about it but Steve Garguilo drops in to talk Penn State Football and PSU Podcasts. It’s a windy day on set but Brandon’s quick reflexes rescue The Colonel just in time.
Kevin headed to Illinois for the game and picked up some interesting drinking tips. We’re joined by the U.S. Marines for our Leatherneck Leader of the week segment and Kirk French drops in with a very special cocktail just for Brandon.
We loaded up an RV with the cast, crew and a little bit of Happy Valley and headed to Raleigh / Durham, N.C. to broadcast from Rookies Sports Bar with the Penn State Alumni Triangle Chapter. The weather was cooperative and we helped raise over $900 for the Urban Ministries of Wake County to help victims of hurricane Florence and had a great time in the process!
This week’s episode of Obligatory features a star-studded cast of characters including (but not limited to) Keith Conlin aka Goon, Jeff Byers, Glausangeles inc, Staff Sgt. Willie Walton of the US Marines and of course, Kirk French, professor of Booze and Culture.
