Jordan, Jesse, Go! Episode 220: Terminated with Ben Acker

Ben Acker

The Thrilling Adventure Hour's Ben Acker joins Jesse and Jordan for discussion of Van Wilder, college radio, ascetisism and more.


Baseball books

Since Jesse was talking about baseball books on this week's episode--and recommending two of my favorites, Veeck as in Wreck and Ball Four--it seems worth sharing this recent story from the New York Times where they asked writers to recommend their favorites. The Arts Beat Blog then followed up with reader suggestions; there are some great books in these lists.

I will admit to being surprised that Jesse's answer to the question, "How can I get into baseball?" wasn't "Go back to 1989 and live in the Bay Area."

Sports Team

Just say the Portland Sea Dogs. They are a Minor League team in Portland, Maine.
