So as you can guess from my posts I listen to my fair share of the talk radio, specifically sports talk radio.
See, KG was shocked to find that out, but it’s true.
Some of these callers and hosts for that matter are just so fucking annoying to listen to. They get so worked up about trying to force a point across that is asinine and/or absurd. Let’s take an example I had the pleasure of listening to last night…
Listening to the Planet Mikey show, which I love, he had a caller on for what amounted to be about 10 minutes. NO this wasn’t Wyc Grosbeck, Peter Gammons or even Sam Horn, instead it was some jackass that had no idea what the hell he was talking about.
The theory he purposed was the the Globe and Herald both were on Larry Luchino’s payroll and knew about Schilling’s injury but didn’t break the story because Uncle Larry asked them not to. Are you fucking high? Even if Larry was handing out envelopes of cash outside Yawkey Way these journalists are too competitive to be the one to break the story that they’d let something like that go under the radar.
These are the same yahoo nuts that call and purpose things like trading Julio Lugo and Doug Mirabelli to the Padres for Jake Peavy or trading Tom Brady now, while he has value and letting Matt Gutierrez run the offense because he knows the system well enough. And that’s why you’re sacking groceries and Theo Epstein is making six figures.
I’m sure that some of these guys make some valid points, occasionally, but it seams to be the exception rather than the norm. There really should be a test that you need to take as far as knowing basic things about sports, like salary cap implications before asking why the Celtics couldn’t have gotten Shaq from Miami for Leon Powe.
That’s why I’ve started to listen to Toucher and Rich as well as Opie and Anthony, more and more, instead of Angry Bill and Dakota on Dennis and Callahan and The Big Show.
