Show Summary 

Adam opens today’s show complaining about rhyming license plate frames. Jeff Cesario is also in studio, and the guys chat about Adam’s piano tuning sign, and another Christmas song that Adam predicts will be soon be banned. The guys go on to discuss the outrage machine, and Chet Waterhouse brings this week’s Sports Report, which leads Adam to share his thoughts on Thailand, homelessness, and Scientology. Up next, Adam talks about hanging with Jimmy at Football Sunday.

Gotham Chopra is in studio next, and Adam talks with him about the insane Isle of Man race that Gotham covered in the season premiere of ‘Religion of Sports’. Adam also asks Gotham about his upbringing, and how his dad’s path to spirituality impacted his life. Gina then reads news stories about the death of former president George H.W. Bush, abuse allegations against an NFL’er on the Kansas City Chiefs, and Kid Rock getting booted from leading the Nashville Christmas Parade. They also talk about sexual abuse accusations against Neil DeGrasse Tyson, claims that women auditioned to be Tom Cruise’s wife, and YouPorn striking back by not drinking Starbucks in their offices. As the show wraps up, Adam and Shek bring today’s Good Sports!
