Manny Hill (@MannyHill84) of 1500 ESPN joined me at the Blue Door Pub to go YOLO on the bit and talk about whatever the hell came up. We touched on Manny sounding like the Men's Warehouse guy, if the Minnesota Twins will suck this year, the Oscars being about films and not movies, what the Minnesota Vikings should do to fix the offensive line, and he also pulls some Rainman stuff on me with Super Bowl participants. Later in the show, we get a little deep talking about if sports media should #StickToSports, protests, and the impact Philando Castile still has on the community.

The Academy Awards went down last night. BULL is back to recap the winners, the losers, and WHAT THE F*CK HAPPENED WITH BEST PICTURE? Andy & Nick also talk about Jimmy Kimmel knocking it out of the park, Hailee Steinfeld stepping up to the big leagues, the opulence of the Oscars gift bags (which are really just Travelocity giftcards), and Jackie Chan won an Oscar! (In November.) Andy also professes his love for Denzel Washington, plays a Con-Air clip for no reason, and vents his frustration about people loving Hamilton without even seeing it.

The Academy Awards are this Sunday and are fun, despite being pompous, masturbatory awards given out to FILMS and not MOVIES. Also Avatar sucks despite earning $2 billion. Name me one line from Avatar. Go ahead. Then Nick accepts his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the Lexi Belle biopic. Later on I explain why it's better for meteorologists to be The Boy Who Cried Wolf than not be, Alex Trebek rapping is a thing of beauty, and the 25th anniversary of the best episode of the Simpsons: Homer at the Bat.

Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of The Viking Age joined BULL to talk about the Minnesota Vikings and upcoming free agency and the NFL Draft. JR and I walked through each and made decisions for the Vikes. Not to go all click-baity on the bit, but if things actually shake out like how we projected, Andy will be a very happy man. Also JR reveals his "source" of Teddy Bridgewater rehab news that breaks #VikingsTwitter on a regular basis.

The name of Lake Calhoun doesn't need to be changed. History is supposed to be learned from, not whitewashed over in a "nothing to see here" manner. But hey, it's good to see we're working big-to-small on our society's problems. Also I implore people to remove the "paperclips" from their Twitter bios, Nick is in love with the Golden Girls, and The Rules of Walking in Public Places are established.

I sat down with Ivory Hecker (@IvoryHecker) of Kare 11 news to chat about the state of the media, fitness, and being a social media boss. We dove into what it's like to cover protests every other week nowadays, waking up at 10pm to start your day, if Americans truly trust the media, and what it was like being the first reporter in on the Kim Davis-Gay Marriage story when she was in Kentucky. Also we talk about Ivory's fitness motivation, why my motivation to workout is only to not be 500-pounds, and we realize we both want to be Oprah.

Andy did not have a great time at the Home and Patio show in St. Paul this weekend, mostly because of a stuffy old lady and and escalator (long story). Also he suggests trade shows could learn a thing or two from Fogo de Chao. Andy and Uncle Nick also talk about the shooting in Maplewood, why Monopoly updating their pieces is stupid, and the new MN United kits are prettay prettay pretty good. Plus the How Old They Be: Child Actor edition!

The Day Without Immigrants protests went down on Thursday. Neat. Also Nick got a Fidget Cube and it might be making him more anxious, the guys find out who joined Twitter first, the old Facebook logo was creepy as hell, Andy thinks Conor McGregor would have a shot against Floyd Mayweather, and he makes the case that the upcoming movie Get Out will do more damage than good for race relations. Later on in the news, Nick finds out there's nude photos of Kate Upton on the internet.

Friend of the program Eric Eager (@EricEager82) of Pro Football Focus swung by to chat about upcoming free agents the Minnesota Vikings could and should be interested in. Ranging from pipe dream Eric Berry, the obvious Andrew Whitworth, and the under-the-radar Kenny Britt? We also gabbed about the Super Bowl, remembered the joys of 41-Donut, and if the NFL Draft truly is a crap shoot.

Andy and Uncle Nick debut the game How Old They Be with a rousing edition of Minnesota born actors and actresses. Also both had a huge crush on Caroline in the City. So yeah. They also recap the Mall of America turning 25, Boyz II Men being a big deal back in the day, and Saving Silverman was a cinematic masterpiece and was snubbed by the crooked Academy.

Live from the Blue Door Pub University, we had Frank Haataja of the Minnesota Skinny on to talk beer, bars, and life. We chatted about how the great microbrew scene in the Twin Cities is strong and great for the consumer, I find out that a "cicerone" is a thing (hint: it's not an Italian pasta dish), what the Rams or Chargers need to do in Los Angeles to be successful, why Sunday Sales and legalizing marijuana need to happen in Minnesota, and does Leinenkugels try too hard?

Happy pre-Valentine's Day! Andy gets things rolling with a love letter to his wife for not being high maintenance and super into made up holidays. Then he and Uncle Nick debate what is fake news on Facebook. Sports wise, UFC 208 went down Saturday and Andy has a few requests from Holly Holm and Andersen Silva. Plus Kevin Durant returned to Oklahoma City and Thunder fans won a Pyrrhic victory in the sh*t talking department.

All that plus news and Saturday Night Live needs to stop going to the well on this edition of BULL with Andy Carlson.

The Seattle Seahawks signed jettisoned Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh to a contract Thursday. Part of me thinks it's purely a charity case as Blair helped secure Seattle a playoff win last year. Uncle Nick and I also talk about how Bud Grant is the REAL Paul Bunyan of the North Star State, how we wouldn't want to F with Charles Oakley, why 50 Shades Darker is a dumpster fire, and the chances of Minnesota legalizing recreational marijuana.

Producer Allie joined the show to chime in about what exactly she does here, the state of blogger journalism, the joys of being a de facto parent, and grills me on why I hate travel and have no desire to see the world. Also she psychoanalyzes me for why I was an intelligent but disruptive child and why that still might be true. Plus she tries to describe herself as my "Girl Friday" without being euphemistic.

Nick shows some appreciation to Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory and an unknown movie called The Bronze in the first ever Nickipedia. Also I get creeped out by Target being inside my head and I PRAY that Oceans Eight is actually good so I don't have to be labeled a racist/sexist/bigot/homophobe.

Friend of the Program Darren "Doogie" Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of KSTP and 1500ESPN joined the show to relive possibly the greatest Super Bowl ever played, what we in the Twin Cities area can expect next year as the Big Game descends upon our little hamlet, if PJ Fleck is going to be yelling "Ski-U-Mah" for the long haul, and if the media should or should not #StickToSports.

The debut of BULL with Andy Carlson. Prince was still the greatest Super Bowl halftime show in the history of mankind. Uncle Nick & I also talked about Melissa McCarthy's spot on Sean Spicer on SNL, Beyoncé's attention grabbing pregnancy announcement, and Taylor Swift not cut out for life on the road on this edition of BULL.
