What makes a good troll article? How can you write a fake sports column that sounds believable enough to fool half the people, while being a hilarious parody to the other half? Grantland’s Andrew Sharp, former writer of SB Nation’s “Troll Tuesday,” current writer of Grantland’s #HotSportsTakes, joins us on this week’s Frotcast to explain.

Listen on the player above, or download as an mp3 here (right click, save as).

We get the skinny on who Andrew has fooled, who he’s pissed off, and who he’s sleeping with (maybe). Vince, Brendan, and Matt Lieb are in the Frotquarters this week. We also cover Matt’s drop-in set at City Hall to do gentrification comedy (no, seriously), why San Francisco is full of bossy pricks, the return of “DEEZ NUTS,” the most recent 30 for 30, and UFC 172. ENJOY!

Here’s Matt Lieb doing gentrification comedy:

And here‘s the glorious return of “Deez Nuts.”

Plus, my favorite screencap:



The Deez Nuts Guy is proud, Doug is pissed that he’s been had, and the bailiff is loving it. I’m convinced Doug is a total sociopath for some reason.

In addition to FilmDrunk, you can always find the Frotcast at (even though Podbean sucks),, and at Stitcher, where you can stream to your iPhone or Android device, no downloadin’ required (and they usually update pretty punctually).

Additionally, you can catch us on Mutiny Radio every Wednesday!
