SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: ProdJoe on point today, Jay Jr. running late with the snowy conditions outside, we think Jennings might live in some athlete’s former mansion, athletes that have sold their houses in the area, more expensive real estate in the area, purchasing an expensive car, ProdJoe’s familiarity with high school locations in the area, not generally familiar with all the neighborhoods in the area like Hazelwood, “ball buffer”, those houses in Compton Heights have good ‘bones’, “Cot’s” baseball site, always issues wherever you live, ProdJoe and beard still do not want kids, Doug was hoping he’d change his mind, ProdJoe feels his live will be halfway over by about next August, Doug disagrees that ProdJoe will be content with dying at the age of 72, some random bucket list items, remembering when the VCR almost destroyed the movie theatre business, Jennings arrives, our bowling skills, Doug always forgets how decent he is at knocking pins, want to talk some golf…, captains log, might have some counterpoints to proposed, the old popular malls in the Downtown area that became ghost towns, like the idea of seeing a stadium to the riverfront, the MLS aspect, comments from our interview with Ian Rapoport yesterday, job security for Jeff Fisher though he’s hitching his wagon to Sam Bradford, we know ProdJoe’s feeling on the former first overall pick, comparing simple stats between Bradford and Austin Davis, relationships between reporters and certain writers will create rumors from time to time, not forgetting that Bradford was the 2010 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, little adjustment to the captains log, looking forward to fans interacting with him on PocketTube next week, little critique on the 4FOX broadcast, don’t usually use napkins for pocket squares, picking on the wrong graphic, seeing Feldsie wandering in the downtown area, parking downtown, haggling with parking attendants, miss those Missouri-Illinois football games at The Dome, Illinois football is a thing of beauty, Tim Beckman wants more love from the media, Plow Boy says Champaign has an awful football atmosphere which obviously has a lot to do with the awful team, Illini have a top ranked golfing program, would think Illini could recruit better considering Chicago is up the road & forgot we have to break.
SEGMENT 2 – Oo some Culture Club, that Ronnie Milsap is still with us, Dan Rosen of NHL.com joins the show, big loss for the Blackhawks losing Patrick Kane, unfortunately the Hawks are one of the few teams that can replace a Kane, Blues GM Doug Armstrong on the road scouting some possible trade options with the deadline looming next week, names floating on the trade market that could be of interest to the Blues, really believes the Blues have the talents to make a deep postseason run, Blues do not rely on their goalies to win yet rather count on them to be part of the win, why not Brian Elliott if someone like Corey Crawford can win a cup, would rather have Brian Elliott than Ryan Miller, obvious sounding but Blues have shot if they can get out of the first round, potential series matchup for Blues-Predators (way down the road…), Doug wondering about the best player in the league which would still be Sidney Crosby according to Dan, considers Vladimir Tarasenko to could be one of the most-skilled players in the league, ProdJoe knows all about staying at PGA National in the Jupiter area, that Honda Classic happening there & Alpena wants to know from Jennings if Tiger Woods is done.
SEGMENT 3 – George Michael theme today, references to getting a job, helping friends get a job, plenty of blue collar opportunities out there, some jobs just require one to sale, some can sell while others cannot, selling season tickets for the Rams, wondering about the kind of fans that are still buying the tickets, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch joins the show, not a doctor who will not give Adam Wainwright prognosis, what was learned about Waino’s situation yesterday, anticipation that he will back off from workouts for a period of time, Waino was already toning down workouts before abdominal situation came up, big relief that the issue does not affect his throwing, looking back the recent history of Waino’s work since Tommy John surgery, Bruce Bochy and Mike Matheny will start going back and forth on managing the NL All-Star ball club, Cardinals dealing with drinking and driving again, handling twenty-five different personalities hoping they will make the responsible choices, everyone in the clubhouse now has an example of what can go wrong, peers will certainly govern themselves, interesting quotes from Matt Carpenter, some people questioning how the Cardinals are memorializing Oscar Taveras, wrong to analyze why/how someone died especially when it comes to simple patch on a jersey, Derrick looking forward to his first picnic table visit after a dozen years of Spring Training coverage, our text community embraces Derrick, somewhat tough to get message through to team or certain individuals & ProdJoe scolded the way he conducted the interview with Derrick leads to ‘text of the day’.
SEGMENT 4 – More George Michael, some mean texts, Michael Allen of the Preservation Research Office joins the show, perspective on why the North Riverfront location is not the best for the proposed stadium project, the value of the current real estate including historic builings, use to be an operating bath house in the area, blows Doug’s mind…, some historic building could remain with the proposed project, tought to renovate without letting go some of the past, work of the Preservation Research Office, rank among the top in the country for registered buildings, wondering how many historic buildings are vacant, the economics of the historic buildings, small compared to stadium yet serve as a life blood to the city, want sites to serve as a positive for the city, value of parking/tailgate areas, had some conversations with the Mayor’s administration about that riverfront land, wondering what deems a building as historic, most of the registered abandoned building are located mostly in the northern city area, not out of the question that an area like North St. Louis could make a comeback like Soulard or Lafayette Square, debate on the use of certain buildings, other ways to balance the investment of the riverfront land, on the city government to do something if stadium plan falls through, downtown was like the riverfront before Busch Stadium II, odd how some parts of the city have gone up and down, some good old civic debate & support those sponsors.
