Check It Out
Andrew recommends "Welcome to Wrexham," an FX " docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town’s historic yet struggling football club." The two stars are Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds.
Rex recommends UFO's 1977 single "Lights Out," and has best wishes for a quick recovery for the band's singer, Phil Mogg, who suffered a major heart attack last week as the band prepared to kick off its farewell tour.
Craig recommends Pat Green's first album in seven years, "Miles and Miles of You." This is the title cut.
Errata: Kōtarō Isaka's book upon which the film "Bullet Train" is based was originally titled "Maria Bītoru," which translates to "Maria Beetle." Publishers sold the book in the US under the title "Bullet Train." Five NFL teams have made the playoffs with sub-.500 records - Cleveland (4-5) and Detroit (4-5) (go figure those two) in the lockout-shortened 1982 season, Seattle (7-9) in 2010, Carolina (7-8-1) in 2014 and Washington (7-9) in 2020. The 1962 NY Mets finished 40-120-1. The song is called "Take Me Out to a Dance Hall."
