We're drinking New Belgium's Snow Day beer this episode, and not just because it's a Winter Wonderland outside in Flagstaff, Arizona. This is a deliciously hoppy beer with a "keep you warm on a Winter's day" 6.2% alcohol content by volume.
We begin by talking about HBO's 24/7 series, this time focusing on the coming NHL Winter Classic starring the Philadelphia Flyers and some loser team from New York. We attempt to clean up the podcast in the spirit of the Holiday Season and fail miserably. The failure begins with our discussion of "pornaments," adult themed holiday decorations.
The Flagstaff Christmas Parade is mentioned next, as Zen lived out his dreams of being a Mascot. We also talk about "Real Man" Christmas trees, with orange extension cords and generators in tow.
Zen shares his childhood Christmas wish of getting a Star Wars AT-AT, much like Ralphie's wish to get a Red Ryder BB gun in "A Christmas Story." Ray can't remember ever wanting much of anything around Christmastime.
The Legend of Sancho Claus, sung by Chuy D last year, is replayed for your pleasure, and then Zen tells the story of the feud he's having with a local homeless man. He unveils his new song, "Bum bum bum bum bum," sung to the tune of "The Little Drummer Boy."
Enjoy this holiday themed episode, and please share!
