tim talked about his concussion he suffered as a kid. tim was gangster hooping at st. gabriel’s gym in 1988, when he slipped because someone was mopping and hit his head and got a concussion. he said he knocked himself queer and was wandering st. louis hills not knowing what was going on……cat said junior year while he was playing lacrosse, he launched himself at a defenseman and fell onto the field. he stood in the middle of the field just watching the action till his coach yelled at him to get off the field…..doug took a shot in college and didn’t remember anything about it too. he was at the hockey rink at mizzou at a fraternity party and someone slid in front of him and he said oh no and the next thing he knew was that he woke up the next day in the hospital…….tim didn’t remember anything until he saw on tv that jack clark signed with the yankees…..
Jack Clark used a Joe Morgan model bat because it was high quality. Jack was never superstar quality so some of the bats they would send him wouldn’t be consistent….. Jack wouldn’t mind getting back into coaching…..
The redbirds are soaring now…..Tony LaRussa still won’t call Chris Perez his closer, but Jack Clark called him that on the broadcast…..Where would this team be if they used him earlier in the season as the closer? Doug was screaming at the TV for Perez to be put in the game in the 8th inning and then he was put in…..Doug thinks when the end of the season rolls around people are going to say that the Cards aren’t in the playoffs because they blew so many saves……They had no other options anyway when they brought him up the first time, but Tony just never wanted to put him in a save situation…..The team said he had to work on his slider, but Cat said his fastball has so much movement on it that even if he shows slider every once in a while it will throw batters off……Perez said that the reason he was struggling a little in the big leagues was because he wasn’t being used everyday and he was used to being the closer…….
Derrick thinks that if Adam Wainwright or Chris Carpenter would’ve been healthy earlier, the team would be in a much better position for the wild card spot, and that having healthy, top starters would’ve benefited the Cardinals more than having a closer the whole season……Brad Thompson will start Friday for Carpenter. Thompson likes starting and he wants to show the team what he can do……The Reds have a different lineup without Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey…….The Cards have fallen off a little bit in the standings, but they have been playing well…..It is important to win the game tonight against the Marlins because it’s hard to climb over teams this late in the season….The Cards are going to need some help because they don’t have a lot of games left with the Brewers….Chris Perez has a picture of Harry from Harry and the Hendersons hanging in his locker, and Derrick doesn’t think it was Chris’ choice of putting it in there. The veteran guys made him put it in there…….
two georgian men claim they have found a bigfoot…..cat said they know it is real because they found a sam’s club card that says bigfoot on it…..if you are going to do dna research you need to do it in palo alto, california…….it would be pretty hard to find just one of anything, according to doug. a species needs to have parents and a school system…. there are all types of school systems, except for in st. louis……
Michael Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day, and Cat wants to know how many calories are in 12 tacos…….Cat is 5’9” 210 pounds……The guys don’t think Phelps is the most popular athlete in the world……The average man of the same age needs to eat 2000 calories a day……Phelps intakes 4000 every time he sits down at a meal. For breakfast he eats 3 fried egg sandwiches with mayo, 2 cups of coffee, 3 slices of French toast, and 3 chocolate chip pancakes. For lunch he eats a pound of pasta, 2 sandwiches with Mayo and drinks 1000 calories of energy drinks. For dinner he eats a pound of pasta and a whole pizza and has another 1000 calories of energy drink……He should train in St. Louis in the river and then walk up to Show-Me’s and eat wingy wingy……
jack is an analyst for fox sports midwest and works with cat….jack said there is nothing better than being on the field for him. he enjoyed coaching with the dodgers because he learned a lot…..players now a days are making much more money, and they are being moved up quicker into the big leagues…..jack said his best playing experience was in st. louis and his best manager was whitey herzog…..jack said that “whitey ball” went out of style with steroids, and it is hard to find guys who can switch hit and steal bases……steroids increased the number of home run hitters so then people stopped stealing bases and just hit home runs……guys are more mentally tough now….when jack came up as a rookie, he made the league minimum of $35,000…..jack reminisced about different guys he played with.
Leftover Riff Raff:
Cat got his nickname because he had to get a cat scan……Doug was a stand in for some stunts for Johnathon Lithgow in Harry and the Hendersons…….The new school is having a big year……Brad Thompson’s new nickname should be the yo-yo……Cat doesn’t look much like Michael Phelps……Doug should go to Lenscrafters and use his senior discount……Jamaicans hate homosexuals……Michael Phelps used to train with the Wii……
