It's a busy night on the Happy Hour, as the Rams laid the wood on a former nemesis on Thursday Night Football, beating New England 24-3, meaning all that's between them and a playoff spot are the winless Jets next weekend. Win, and they're in. We talk about what was good for the Rams (Cam Akers, with 171 yards!) what was great (the Rams defense) and what was irrelevant (Jared Goff). Plus, what made us sad (Pats QB Cam Newton, who is clearly just a shell of his former self).
From there, it's a conversation with documentary filmmaker Bernardo Ruiz, who directed the new 30 for 30 entitled "The Infinite Race," which premieres December 15, on ESPN and ESPN Deportes. It chronicles Raramuri people of Mexico's Copper Canyon, also known as the Tarahumara, a community of people famed for their distance running abilities despite extreme poverty, and the rise of ultramarathon running they helped inspire. It's an incredible film dealing with culture, power, and what can happen when those things intersect, even among well meaning people.
Finally, we kick around Paul George's contract extension with the Clippers. Has the PG slander gone a little too far? Or at the least, does it too often miss the point? Well, sort of... but not always.
