Some interesting stuff on this episode ... I never thought I'd hear a discussion of horseshit hockey pucks on a superhero podcast. My mom (who was born in 1939 and grew up on a farm) told me she used to play hockey with frozen horseshit--also known as road apples--when she was a kid, though I doubt the NHL ever had to resort to that.

During the time that Thomas Fireheart owned the Daily Bugle (which he bought to pay off his debt of honour to Spider-Man by using the paper to rehabilitate Spidey's reputation) he habitually wore suits and looked pretty good. There are plenty of examples from the comics of the time (1989-1990); you can see a decent example in the last panel here.

By the way, I always thought the Browning Llama was an alternate name for the Browning Hi-Power, but I couldn't find anything to confirm that. The very name seems contradictory, as Browning is a British company and Llama firearms were made in Spain.
