# 389 - Jump the Shark Week, Volume II - Politics, Sports, Pop Culture

1:01:09 minutes (55.99 MB)

Jump the Shark Week Concludes with a look at Jump the Shark moments in Pop Culture, Politics, Sports, and a dive into Columbus. We continue to use guidance from the 2002 book, "Jump the Shark: When Good Things Go Bad" by Jon Hein (the Jump the Shark Website jumped when Jon sold out to TV Guide in 2007).

Dukakis in the Tank. The B*ckeyes and Miami in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. Michigan loses to Appalachian State. Art Modell moves the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore. LeBron announces he's leaving Cleveland on National TV. The Trump Administration. Those were all Jump the Shark Moments.

Here at Home, Franklinton is swallowed whole in the 1913 Flood. Hanford Village is cut in half by Interstate 70. Bexley gets a McDonald's. Les Wexner founds New Albany. Tattoogate even took down Terrelle Pryor and OSU Athletic Director Gene Smith. J.T. Barrett jumped with The Spot in the 2016 "The Game". The Columbus Crew jumped when we literally #SavedTheCrew. The Citizen-Journal and The Other Paper jumped when they got bought by the Columbus Dispatch, which would jump when the Wolfe Family left ownership.

Happy Anniversary....Again
