The Mix: Dan tried to prank Norm by setting the alarm on his phone for 1:00am, it failed. Norm wasn’t born yesterday, but there isn’t any evidence to prove that he wasn’t born in a barn or at night.
The Open: In ever, Jerry…in ever. It’s being reported that 50,000 to 100,000 prostitutes could be in Dallas for Super Bowl week; so who are you really renting out your house to? Make sure you get some new sheets.
12:35 – NFL Talk: Dan had the Packers/Bears final score told to him by the pizza guy before he was able to finish the game; another Dan Game Delay Backfire. More on (moron?) Cutler. Coming out of college, he had all of the physical skills but he seemed to lack the intangibles; Bob sees a lot of Jeff George in him, which is why he will always be given a chance in the NFL.
12:50 – More NFL Talk: Bob looks at 2 Linebackers taken in similar spots in the draft and have played in similar systems, Lamarr Woodley in Pittsburgh and Anthony Spencer in Dallas. Woodley has 39 sacks while Spencer has 15.5; though the Cowboys gave up 3 picks to move up 10 spots in the draft in order to take Spencer. Is it a matter of evaluating personnel or is it the coaching and development once the player is drafted? The answer to that question could tell you what the major difference between the Steelers and the Cowboys is.
1:15 – Donovan’s Samples: Donovan comes back with some more Hip-Hop songs that use samples from obscure songs or less known songs. Previous songs examined: “Mary Mary” by Run DMC, “I Left My Wallet in El Segundo” by A Tribe Called Quest, and “Just a Friend” by Biz Markie.
The first song on this edition is “It’s Tricky” by Run DMC.
Song number 2 is “Shoop” by Salt-N-Pepa.
Samples used: “I’m Blue” by The Sweet Inspirations.
Song number 3 is “The Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground
1:35 – Some Baseball Talk: Friday, a trade went down that sent Vernon Wells from Toronto to the hated Angels. Surprisingly, Wells is the 2nd highest paid player in baseball. The Angels pulled out of the Adrian Beltre deal because he was too pricey, yet they sign Wells for just as much and their giving up Mike Napoli and Juan Rivera. In other news, Rafael Soriano is now a Yankee from division rival Tampa Bay. In an embarrassment of riches, the Yankees signed the number 1 closer in the league, give him number 1 closer money, and yet make him their setup guy. Typical Yankees.
1:55 – Gay Not Gay: Dear Gay not Gay, is it gay to put a sticker on the back of your car that simply is 13.1; representing that you ran a half marathon? Yes, a 13.1 sticker is gay; 26.2 or IronMan, not so much. Dear Gay not Gay, is it gay to get the MVP treatment (hot towel and neck massage) from a man at SportsClips? Pretty much. (It’s also gay to use the term bangs when describing your haircut). Dear Gay not Gay, is it gay to have a Dodge Viper and a custom vanity license plate that reads “SSSSSSS”. Super Gay. Finally, it is not gay to assist a friend who has dipped his chip in queso and can’t shake the queso loose so you use your chip to “end the dip”.
2:15 – Mavs vs. Clippers: “Check the schedule for when the Clippers are in town”, words you thought you’d never say. Tonight, the Mavericks welcome the LA basketball that doesn’t have Kobe on the roster. Blake Griffin is a beast and makes his debut in the AAC. Want to hear Bob tell Mike Bacsik that Blake Griffin would not be a #1 guy on a team? Check out TC’s Twitter for the audio. No Peja tonight for the Mavericks.
Breaking News: The Rangers have dealt Pitcher Frank Francisco to the Blue Jays for Catcher Mike Napoli.
2:35 – 5 Minute Major: The Stars have had an extremely tough time closing out this current road trip into Canada; giving up 7 goals in each of the last 2 games.
2:45 – Ranch Report: David Moore joins the show from Lambeau Field. He’s currently spending a week in Green Bay; the perks of being a newspaper reporter. It’s amazing how the Packers have responded to injuries on both sides of the ball and have the success that they’ve had. They have never trailed by more than 7 points all season and their 6 losses have come by 6 points or less. Hopefully he’ll report on the strip club in Green Bay where the strippers wear Jorts.
3:00 – WTDS: The Ticket needs a car radio show. In 1971, Charles Manson and his harem were convicted of murder. Sharon Tate won the Miss Tiny Tot of Dallas Competition, hosted by Mike Rhyner. Happy Birthday to Mark Duper, DP Fanatics 8, Jeff Gossett, Don Maynard, Andy Cox and Alicia Keys. Birthdays you’d find in your trunk (spares), Vincent Brisby, Randy McKay, Mark Schlereth and Ricky Nattiel. RIP Lou Groza.
Listen to BaD Radio everyday from 12 – 3pm on Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket. I do, and I has opulence.
