April 14: Seg. 1 – Show Open

We are at Billy Gs in Kirkwood. Big win for the Blues in Game 1 vs. Blackhawks. David Backes says Brian Elliott should’ve been the “First Star.” We play coach Ken Hitchcock’s press conference. Last night’s win was bigger for the Blues than the Blackhawks, says Doug. Brian Elliott playing very confident right now. Not too much red in Scotttrade Center last night. Doug saw Jim’s boss at the game last night. He also saw Ryan Kelley, the show’s title sponsor. The boys are loving this new patio at Billy Gs.Cardinals lose after Trevor Rosenthal gives up a two-run home run in the ninth. Mike Matheny talks about the loss. Tim has a woodpecker on his roof. He took a tennis ball today and chucked it at the bird. He struck the chimney and the bird “bolted like the wind.” He’s scared it’s going to come back. Jim now has a story about chicks. Dan McLaughlin texts Tim “It’s time to free Dotem.” Jim agrees with Dan. Doug wishes they had reg. season OT rules in the playoffs. He says he’s going to give NHL commish Gary Bettman a piece of his mind. Switching gears, Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in his career finale. Golden State Warriors now hold the record for most wins in a season. Doug liked the cashews in the Blues’ press box last night. Derrick Goold will join after the break.
