Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher puts peanuts in his Diet Coke, and Tim learns that this is actually normal,... in the south. Lou learns that he can get his yard trimmed up nice by goats. Christian sparks a conversation about the stupidest things ever done in the name of love.

Albert Breer,NFL Network, reported that Bill Belichick would like to win a Super Bowl after Tom Brady retires. The thought is that Bill is always trying to build his legacy and if he could win an additional title with a QB other than Brady, it would put him in an even higher echelon of coaches. MFB discuss the coaching greats of NFL's past, and decide if Belichick needs to accomplish more to eclipse them.

As the show was ending, he remembered this and reached into the bag and pulled out not ONE, but TWO New England Patriots Super Bowl rings. His response: "Oh! There they are."
