    Season 2 of Pros vs. Joes premieres this Thursday, Jan. 25th on Spike TV. The pros will be Michael Irvin, Kevin Willis, Jose Canseco, and Randy Couture. Spike is running a marathon of Season 1 most of today.

    For anyone that hasn't seen this show, it's actually pretty funny at times - especially when you have trash-talking Joes that get crushed by Pros on the football field. Great season one moments include a Joe who rags on 'roid freaks in sports, only to have to face Bill Romanowski on the football field, the Joe who wouldn't swim against Olympic swimmer Gary Hall Jr., then finally admitted he lied on his application and he couldn't swim, John Rocker giving up a hit to trash-talking Joe and nearly going into the tank, Joes talking trash to softball player Jennie Finch who proceeds to strike out the side and questioning all their manhood in the process.

    Randy Couture was absolutely torturing those Joes last night. The winner in the Couture challenge was the one who "tapped the least" in 5 minutes. When the Joes weren't screaming in agony, you could literally hear elbows, knees, and shoulders popping and cracking. When Michael Irvin, Kevin Willis, and Jose Canseco were introduced, the Joes were trash-talking with one guy even making a crack at Jose about juicing up. But when Couture came out, the Joes were silent except for the one who just said, "Oh d**n."
