If you're a Clone ...
If you like Sports ...
If you're a middle aged AM Radio Sports Guy (missing hair in the middle section of your dome - awkward - and actually buy into the scam known as Viagra) ...
If you play Softball with more zeal (and accessories) than a roided-out Jose Canseco...

.. all screaming at your teammates like it's the 3rd Game of the World Series... Sliding into home like you're heading for an unsuspecting Buster Posey
Then THIS is the thread for you !!!

If your John in NY impression sounds suspiciously similar to your impression of Corky from Life Goes On...
Then THIS is the thread for you !!!

If you are clinging to Forum Culture harder than Monica Seles Smacking the fat off her Tennis Ball...

Then THIS is the thread for you !!!!!! (how many more exclamation points does it take to convince you????)

Daily updates, discussion, Smack Talk, in-depth analysis ... (Yes, I said 'In-Depth analysis')

@MisterFister don't even think about bringing your spoiled-ass Sports takes hyping up Detroit teams like some 5th generation forgotten son of Cecil Fielder

I listen to the Pat Mcafee podcast as they come out and 35 minute best of The Herd from Cowherd.

I've heard Rome's name but never listened.

Pat McAfee does the show before Jim Rome on CBS Sports Radio. I haven't listened to Cowherd in forever. Sometimes I like him and sometimes I don't.

Friday shows are very much worthy.
WTF, he's doing an interview in the last hour of his show? It seems like he usually burns that hour with repetitive bullshit and sound clips.

hahaa... Good on you for listening!
I had to miss the last hour, due to 'Emergency Engineering'. But will listen after lunch.

The first hour was pretty mundane... Silk calling to say he's running for Mayor of Huntington Beach opposing Tito Ortiz,
but not FULLY submitting his 'official' statement, while calling about running for Huntington Beach Mayor.... ugh!
This dude USED to be a quality content caller, but it seems he's getting senile at his ripe age of 40-something.

Even the Fake Silk is better than the real Silk... and even the Fake Fake Silk is better.

Exactly.

@BlastemSkyHigh

Listen Live @ 9am PST / 12pm EST

I added him in my subscriptions. I'll check him out at work Saturday.


I pause too much to listen to anything live. Podcast only for me.
My only other daily podcast is FreeBeer and HotWings morning show. (Not sports and it's where my name came from back in the day)

Let's open up the convo to anything Sports, or Sports Talk Radio.
Especially since Romey is out on Vacation for Two weeks.
Monday looks a lot like ...

- Oakland AAA's are tied with the 'Stros (5-4)
bash.jpg

- I'm pretty sure Las Vegas Raiders owner, Mark Davis, lives out the Buffalo Bill tuck and dance on the nightly
BNG-L-RAIDERS-0101-10.jpg

- Can we raise a Gofundme to heal Norv Turners Ball Sack that he calls a neck?

- If your name is 'Robin', and you're a dude... Nolan Ryan will hunt you down and show you the knucks!

Won't matter since MLB won't finish out the season because the million players and billionaire owners are unable to control the COVID-19 spread despite it coming down to their behaviors such as going out to strip clubs and dance clubs at night.

Cardinals-Tigers postponed due to virus outbreak
"The Cardinals have had 13 members of the organization test positive for COVID-19 in the last week, including seven players and six staff members," the league said in a statement. "The Club, which has been in quarantine since Thursday, will stay in Milwaukee and their personnel will continue to be tested daily. The tentative plan is for the team to resume its regular schedule on Friday against the Chicago Cubs in St. Louis."

@BRiT
Anyone else would be charged with Reckless Endangerment, or some other legal mumbo jumbo.
But, NOT MLB ... The MLB has not fashioned such terms and agreements if multiple people contract the COVIDs.
It's like they just turn a blind eye, and hope nobody notices.
But just like anything else in this Country, Money trumps everything... including lives.
And the Gov't is too preoccupied with their own selfish ideologies to even pay attention, and do something about it.

oh well ... Let the Games begin !!!
(and then again... if the ENTIRE league contracts the COVID, then problem solved)

First listen was ok . I listened to this past Thursdays show I think, at least the first two hours of it. I turned it off when he got to the listener/caller portion. Really no interest in that. I liked the Kelly rant. Interviews were a mix, Pats guy was ok , Winfield was boring. Was meh on the silk panties skit. Was going to give it another shot today but he's apparently on vacation or out sick. Does he not realize I am deciding his future in my rotation?

I commend you, BudV ...
Not a lot of people would even go that far with it.
I'll remind you in 2 weeks when he's back from the Vacation, until then, i will be updating this thread on the daily with random, or topical, sports yadas.

I generally like the opinion and interviews for sports. Listening to dumb fans and callers, not so much lol

Eddy Alvarez, Olympic short track medalist, to play for Miami Marlins
Link

eddie.jpg


Eddy Alvarez realized his MLB dream, six years after earning a Winter Olympic medal, and during a global pandemic that affected his club more than any other U.S. professional sports franchise.

Alvarez, a 2014 U.S. Olympic short track speed skating medalist, is being added to the Miami Marlins roster for Tuesday’s restart of their abbreviated season, president of baseball operations Mike Hill said Monday, according to Marlins beat reporters.

The 30-year-old was among a group added after as many as 18 Marlins tested positive for the coronavirus last week, forcing the club to cancel seven games.

Alvarez is believed to be the first U.S. Winter Olympian to become a Major League Baseball player.
... (continued in link)


Well that's a definite benefit to the Minor Leagues.
Due to the Global Pandemy, Minor Leaguers will get their shot in the Bigs.

Jim Rome will be a Double edged sword then.
He is the King of Sports takes, he even started the phrase, "take", and gave many people in the Industry their start.
The down side is the callers ... some are entertaining, some not so much. In today's Sport Climate, they don't really match up. 20 years ago, they were great.

Here's a Jim Rome pod w/ Pat McAfee ...

Haven't paid much attention to Rome since the Jim/Chris Everett fiasco where Rome got so full of himself he actually thought his words equated to action. He learned very quickly...they don't. He always struck me as one of those self-aggrandizing egoists who'd shit their pants if they ever actually felt the soul crushing pang of some Nolan Ryan chin music. At least have some college level experience of getting your face planted into the muck from some Hillabilly Renfro who kicks like a goddamn mule before you selfishly prognosticate over the merits of a guy so many levels above you that actually seeing what's happening requires a pair of high dollar binoculars. It builds character and humility. Two characteristics which modern sports-reporting lacks wholesale. Being that I respect Fader's knowledge on all things sporting I'll give him another try but if what I find is just more hubris then I'll bow out with a chuckle knowing he's still the same cunt dressed in a cock-and-balls Halloween costume.

... the Jim/Chris Everett fiasco...
When your are known more for being harassed by Jim Rome, and THAT outshines your Tennis career ... then maybe you should probably take a step back, and thank the man who made your 'girly' name a household novelty.

I'll give it to her though ... she had her moment below Stefi Graf
