S02.E06: Speaking In Tongues
Recurring uses of songs in movies and TV, along with fictional languages are the main focus of the games this week. And while that content doesn't sound particularly sporty, our players certainly are! We are pleased to welcome David Roth, Luis Paez-Pumar, and Dan McQuade from the new website Defector.com (risen from the ashes of Deadspin). They'll test their knowledge of songs included in movies as needle drops, and then move into nerdier territory when they identify various pop culture properties based on clips of the fictional languages created for them. And it's always a good game when it comes down to the lightning round!
