Eli Zaret discusses his Channel 4 documentary and the Big Shame that followed the Big Game in Ann Arbor, an altercation that spurred a verbal battle between ML, Shawn and Marc while Joey dials 9-1-1.

STRAIGHT DOPE: Eli Zaret discusses his epic two-part documentary on the rise and fall and rise of Channel 4. Find out whether ML makes a cameo.

One of the most fascinating characters Eli ever covered was Mark “The Bird” Fidrych. See a classic clip of the Bird by watching a replay of the live broadcast of our show on YouTube channel ML Elrick. (Please also subscribe and sign up for notifications so you’ll always know when we go live.)

ML argues that his Spartans put up a good fight in the first half of the Big Game last Saturday. No one agrees, until he says they got clobbered in the second half. Then ML tries to explain his position on the bad fight in the tunnel after the game. Again, no one agrees. But ML soldiers on!

The debate over the debacle in the tunnel heats up, as ML and Marc vehemently disagree on the significance of the “Little Brother” chant and whether it is more evidence that Wolverine fans are arrogant. Shawn says it’s all in good fun, and suggests a group hug (much like he did in his latest column).

GEEK OF THE WEEK: The Red Wings have one of the best jerseys in all of sports, but Adidas keeps screwing it up! See their super geeky new sweaters here.

ROOM 7609: DJ Dan, perhaps anticipating this week’s theme, books Adam Ant and “Beat My Guest” in the New Wave suite.

FEEDBACK: ML responds to a couple conspiracy theorists who wrote to the show (only one of them used crayon).
