Victories Get Championships, But What Do Moral Victories Get?

Just when we were ready to have a celebration Wednesday podcast, well... life comes at you fast. The Washington Football Team learned that the hard way after clawing their way back against the Lions in D-Town, only to have victory snatched by the jaws of defeat courtesy of a last-second Detroit Lions field goal on Sunday to drop the Team to 2-7 on the year.

In this edition of the Cult Of Colt Podcast, we do a full breakdown of the Lions contest, including a deep dive into “moral victories,” namely, what are they actually worth? How do you know one when you’ve seen one? And at what point are they no longer enough to hang your hat on as a fan?

As longtime friends often do Gumbi and I tend to agree on a lot of things which we know doesn’t make for great podcasting... but the gloves are off this week as we debate the broadcasting decisions the major networks make when putting the WFT on the air, and whether or not Aquib Talib was good and fun in the broadcast booth (he was!)

In addition we share a little bit about what we’re sippin’ on this week, a very peculiar marketing (?) email from the WFT that Gumbi received, and a new weekly but not-so-novel segment where we try to make me less of an embarrassment to some former co-workers with whom I bet the spread.
