THE LEAGUE “Yobogoya” and “Carmenjello” Season 3 Episodes 6 & 7 – I’ll start my recaps of The League right after I finish doing some urban foraging.
The League had two opportunities to impress tonight by running back-to-back new episodes. The first one was an episode of battles.

In addition to losing his battle with Taco, Ruxin’s immune system lost its battle with a sinus infection. Andre’s battle with the anti-foraging crowd has to be called a draw since they made him cry while he wore a Robin Hood hat. Pete pulled out a nice victory over his nemesis Glovesy, the crossing guard. Kevin finished the episode by losing his battle to the Yobogoya food chain.
