Big Boss man Tim gave Producer Joe the ok to wear a Beret in the locker room Thursday if the Cards win, and the guys think it might even be better if the team loses….The guys wonder which players would embrace the beret and which ones would be freaked out by it. They don’t think Ryan Franklin would like it.
cat has seen a lot walking into the studio in the morning including rats, homeless people and puddles of urine, but this morning he saw a fully cooked, unconsumed baked potato…..larussa needs to put cat in the two hole for power. last night, the cat tripped a bunch of royals players when his wireless microphone went out and had to use one with a real long cord for the post-game interview.
Brendan Ryan read the starting lineups as Robert DeNiro on Fox Saturday so Cat made him do an impersonation on the pre-game show last night, and Ryan also did an impersonation of Johnny Carson… Ryan was worried about getting in trouble, but Cat kept encouraging him to do it. Everyone was watching it in the Clubhouse, and gave him grief for it.
Cat suggests everyone to watch the movie: Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired. He was originally accused of rape from dating an underage girl, and then the charges were lessoned and instead of fighting all the legal battles, he moved to France and became a legend.
The B-52s were on TV the other day, and the band was wearing the same stuff they always wore back in the day. The must be in their 50’s…..Cat said “Love Cat” instead of “Love Shack.”
Jemele Hill has been suspended from writing for ESPN.com and from on-air duties on ESPN…..She wrote that “rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim or that you wanted Gorbechov to reach the little red button before Reagan”……Cat said that the suspension is unwarranted, and Doug agreed……Hill’s suspension came when radio host Fred Toucher branded her a hypocrite because of her attack on Don Imus when he went after the Rutgers women’s basketball team……Tim doesn’t think Imus or Hill should’ve been suspended but he thinks Imus’ comment was worse.
cindy margolis is now divorced and in playboy this month. she was once the most downloaded woman in america, and now she is doing a radio tour. she is finding trouble getting dates so there is a contest where you can win a date with her at the playboy mansion…..she said she regrets not taking advantage of more casting couches to get further in hollywood.
The guys wonder what the song “turning Japanese” means and “tig bitty” calls in to say it means pullin on your wanker because it slants your eyes after a while.
The guys had trouble reaching Mike Shannon—-guests who don’t come on are sponsored by U-Gas.
The guys try to name the American Film Institute list of Top 10 Sports movies:
Doug and Cat guess a lot of movies that aren’t on the list.
1. Raging Bull
3. Pride of the Yankees
5. Bull Durham
6. The Hustler
8. Breaking Away
9. National Velvet (from 1944)
10. Jerry Maguire
Top 10 Epics:
1. Lawrence of Arabia
2. Ben Hur
3. Schindler’s List
4. Gone with the Wind
7. All Quiet on the Western Front
8. Saving Private Ryan
10. The 10 Commandments
Cat said to impersonate people from the old days you have to add “I tell ya” after everything you say…….Cat said if he went back in time, and people said “blah blah blah, I tell ya,” Cat would tell them “yeah I know you just told me.”
Tim is still hoping that Jim Edmonds pays $10,000 for him to play in the big poker tournament. Tim felt bad because the tournament starts on July 3, which is his anniversary, but his wife said to go for it……The guys say maybe Tim’s wife should get a second job to help pay for it or maybe he should ask his real dad Joe Theisman for some money.
john hangs out with jason isringhausen a lot, and jason is getting back into the groove and will come back…..john said he is the driver, cook, pool man, …..cat said that fsn is looking at mabry as a potential host, and john said he is interested in it but the timing isn’t great right now because he is enjoying being dad……john said that his wife doesn’t like the show as much lately, and doug said that he has been sick so maybe that’s why. john said that really his wife does love to listen everyday though and he doesn’t know why…..john said that radio hosts can know absolutely nothing about what they are talking about but people think they know everything……mabry said that he isn’t surprised at how well the cardinals have done because he knows tony and with pujols, molina, and the young guys fighting for at-bats, they would all work hard to win games…..john played for a bunch of different teams and knows “everyone” so when people ask who he roots for, he says the guys he knows so basically “everyone.”…… mabry said he can’t narrow down the best moment for him on the cardinals, and he names off a bunch of different memories including pujols’ home run in houston, brian jordan’s home run off trevor hoffman in san diego, mark mcgwire’s home run chase….the 2004 team had the best chance to win everything except for the injuries, but with the way the red sox beat the yankees they were on such a roll they steamrolled the cards…….doug brought up that mabry has a horrible era when he had to come in and pitch, and john said that he should’ve gotten out of the inning but someone botched a ground ball.
John Mabry’s wife called in and said that she doesn’t get a chance to listen as much because John has taken over carpool duties. She does like the show, and likes listening when she can.
John was another late scratch because he is going to visit all of the minor league teams in the Cardinals’ organization and he had to fly this morning…..John’s absence was sponsored by Bail Bonds companies—-“when a guest doesn’t show up we bail you out,” Doug said.
Leftover Riff Raff:
Doug doesn’t want to be reincarnated as a dung beetle…..It would be frowned upon to walk into Senor Julio’s with Qdoba food……Irish people don’t like it when people talk bad about potatoes……The Big Z has lived the life and Hugh Hefner is second…..Tony Curtis keeps being brought up on the show today….The ratings for the show are under the weather just like Doug…. The “tin roof is rusty” means a girl got pregnant.
