The Franchise Episode 2 Recap: LoMo Meets His Hero & Lo Viste
The highlight of this episode, however, was Logan Morrison and his quest to meet his childhood idol George Brett. LoMo's penchant for tweeting was examined with Guillen piping in ("Ju tweeting and ju losing, ju a focking ass.").
Morrison, who is a Kansas City native, is seen waiting to meet Brett at a couple of All Star press junkets like a nervous little kid. THE scene of the episode is when Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter appears at the presser and LoMo shakes his hand and Jeter has no fucking clue who he is.
Morrison finally gets to meet Brett, who is a classy dude. And LoMo acts like we all would if we got to meet our idols and by that I mean he shits all over himself with nervousness. It was an honest moment in the show.
Things wrap up with the Fish getting ready for the second half of the season and Guillen giving the team a pep talk. "Now is time to stick ju dick in deh dirt," he says in a rousing speech. Then the Marlins proceed to stick their dicks in everyone's ice cream instead and lose the opener to the Nationals.
Fittingly, the episode ends with Loria and Beinfest discussing what their next move should be, if any. This team is being run by Mongolic fuckheads. Lucky for us all, the fuckheadedness is caught on film for posterity.
The Franchise airs on Showtime every Wednesday at 10 p.m.
