S17:E7 - Kickers, Inc. No. 10 (1987)

Deadly Force

Jul 12, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée check back in with the Kickers, Inc. by reading issue 10 for the first time while recording! Bored of only being known as an NFL superteam, the NY Smashers decide to spend their evenings fighting crime and reaping the tax benefits of self-employment! And they'll need those savings, considering that they don't ever seem to make any money with this monumental waste of time. In this issue, quarterback Jack "Mr. Magnificent" Magniconte gets conned into busting up a drug deal in South America on account of him looking the most like a narc anyway. Can this middle-aged gringo outfox a stereotypical 80s dictator and make it back to the field in time to inflict devastating cranial damage on some poor kid who had his whole life ahead of him? Well, he wouldn't be much of a hero if he couldn't!
