    Remarkably close guys! So is the winner Chicago or San Antonio?

  3. could you guys look any more canadian?

  4. TJB’s biggest hipster: Skeets

  5. I forgot to mention that I really enjoyed the way Matt embraced his “Restaurant Dictator” name and role. He even referred to himself in the third person at times…”The Restaurant Dictator approves” was heard a lot over the last few days.

  6. Was Leigh’s flatulence like an extra person on the trip? Like an annoying cousin.

  7. Hey look, you can see my jacket.

  8. This should have been done as a blank jones…just a final one kinda rapping it up…heart broken now

  9. Bring back the Sonics! I still can not get over the fact that we do not have a team in Seattle!

  10. you guys should have bones on your show regularly if possible…

  11. Matt: Alamo Room at 4 Points Sheraton (San Antonio)

    Are you kidding? That drab fluorescent lit room made me feel like I was on the set of a bizarre Jim Jarmusch scene. One or more of the following must be true:

    1) You lost your virginity to a neighborhood homeless woman there
    2) You discovered a forgotten religious relic left by the last cult to rent the room
    3) Brent Barry inspired priapism
