Tom hanging up on that 3-year-old cracked me up.

Seconded.  Laughed out loud on the train.  And he hung up on him because of his "language."

Milo and his brother should have been in bed, or at least in Antarctica.

Could it be that the boy we take to be "Milo" is really a test trial for the American version?

to be honest
i thought for a moment that the coach would turn out to be HRR, when he offered Tom the job...
would have been nice to hear of HRR again

Relistening to the call from last night. So good, the play by play requires multiple listens to catch all the names.

BeTheBoy was right in that last week's show was a good first Best Show. Last night's show was the essential follow-up. It covered the Best Show traits the previous one missed. Both together make the best Best Show primer I've heard.

Way too many moments to choose from. The best was Milo's Dad's call. Milo's Dad sounded way more defensive and intense than he probably really was, much like a JW call - however Tom doing his kid voice impression of Milo preparing his calls to his dad put this one at the top.

That said, Coach's reaction to Tom's sportcasting was amazingly wrong nut so right.

Todd Barry was great last night as well.

I haven't gotten too far into last night's archive but I think that flash flood warning was great.

Adding to the show last night was Milo getting in trouble with his dad in the chat in the last hour of the show.

Last night was the first time in a while that my wife and I were able to listen side by side for the whole show. The family that Best Shows together, stays together.

I still have yet to see Todd Barry live, and I really want to ... I've been a fan of his thing for years.

I think his mike-grip style is like David Yow's but not as drunk.
Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?
