Mother vs. Grother 2014: Christmas Character or NFL Player, Plus Week 15 Games

Mother vs. Grother is back! That is right. Rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated. America’s favorite podcast for picking NFL games against the spread against my wife and gay brother-in-law is in full throat for the all important week 15 games.

Before we get down to making our picks, we play a holiday themed game. I give the panel a name, and they have to tell me if that person is a famous Christmas movie character or a NFL player. After that we move on to our picks. Making things even more interesting is the presence of wine during the recording.

All that plus an update on the overall standings for the year. Mother vs. Grother is on fire this week.

Mother vs. Grother 2014: Week 8 and The Dangers of Eating Contests

The leaves are changing, and germs of all kinds are coming out to play. It’s a sure sign that Fall is in full swing. This week’s episode of Mother vs. Grother is full of phlegm, thanks to my wife Laura bringing home an illness of unknown provence. While I try to work through a cold, I ask my wife and future brother-in-law about the perils of participating in an eating contest.

After we tackle that topic it is on to the Week 8 slate. Last week I tied Laura (aka the Mother) for first place with Mike (aka the Grother) not that far behind. It makes our picks for the week 8 games even more important as the championship title could be on the line. Next week the Mother and the Grother will give us their list of worst Halloween costume ideas. You won’t want to miss that.

All that and more on this week’s edition of Mother vs. Grother.
