SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: Captain’s log, Doug won’t be much good to us due to Cardinals Home Opener loss, looking back at the pomp and circumstance, Doug doing live shot outside Busch Stadium last evening, asking folks what happened as they leave the ballpark, confusion for purpose of live shot during game, listeners rockin’ it with DraftKings, support our awesome sponsors, very easy registration process to play daily fantasy, easy enough for Rich from Phoenix to play, back to Doug’s live shots, Willie found them charming, ugly ballgame…, hearing from the manager, offense not performing well, Doug does not use ‘RISP’, hearing from the wonderful Cal May talking with Mike Matheny plus Jason Heyward, didn’t take Heyward long to figure that situation out…, Cardinals forgot to tell Heyward about the Home Opener procedures with shaking HOF’ers hands, he wasn’t big into applause but appreciative, some concern with Yadier Molina not looking like himself…, seeing Heyward rip the ball the begin the season, could see Molina pick it up next week, remembering how things went for Allen Craig a season ago, thinking that Molina might needs to eat more fries…, interesting when someone like Molina plays so long with a certain physique, some guys like “Matt the bat” need that Summer weather to heat up, probably premature to be too concerned about Yadi, support the sponsors, anxiously awaiting the Stanley Cup Playoffs, pundits seem to like Blues over Wild in longer series, same with Blackhawks over Predators, those Hawks getting Patrick Kane back, if those Jets can upset the Ducks…, hearing from Ken Hitchcock on not making decision on starting goalie yet, expert consensus seem to like Blackhawks vs Rangers in Stanley Cup Finals, we like the Blues hoisting the Cup at Madison Square Garden, suddenly Doug wants to make plans during the Finals, heading to Mexico, Tim and Cat might show if Doug tells us where he’s heading, doing the show from Mexico or wherever Doug goes, might do some scuba diving, The Cat has had notion to take show to a dude ranch where we gather around getting frisky on whiskey, before we get to the Plow Boy’s situation from yesterday…, breaking down the situation from yesterday about Plow Boy originally going to the game, some of the staff was worthy of going to the game as well for their fine work, so Plow Girl with her friend arrives instead of Plow Boy…, took Plowsie about 45 minutes to get from Soulard to Busch Stadium area, would have liked to give tickets to InsideSTL employee if we knew he was not going…, that ol’ #CuckLife…, Plow Boy just wanted to do something nice after being put into situation, sticking to the #FFF plan, “prostitute scenario”…, The Cat trying to call a timeout for his guy…, Plow Boy talks about his ‘dagger toes’, concern about Plow Boy’s podiatry, so instead of going to the game…,”Stand By Your Man” by Tammy Wynette…, Plow Boy just does not want Plow Girl getting any guff, some folks don’t understand that Plowsie is selfless, sending two girls to your boss, well-respected in Japan, still trying to call at timeout & Chris call making attempt at comedy.
SEGMENT 2 – Love that crescendo…, need to hear that Cal May question to Jason Heyward…(HIT THE LEVER!!), excited about the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Dan Rosen of NHL.com joins the show, does not share same excitement as Blues fans, does not necessarily like the matchup for Blues mostly due to Devan Dubnyk, not liking Blues chances against Dubnyk right now, could certainly see things going the other way, deciding between Brian Elliott or Jake Allen, safe pick is Elliott while risk pick would be Allen, likes Allen at the moment because of the way he’s playing plus more comfort with going to Elliott as safety net, fatigue factor, his pick is Wild in 7 games, advantage for Blues this time around would be capability to outscore opponent, definitely could anticipate some ‘snarl’ between the two division foes, thoughts on the other first round matchups, pick for winning the Cup is the Blackhawks if they can be deep enough on the back line, shifting back to Cal May who also talked with Adam Wainwright following the tough loss, Tim on taking a small taste based on some air density factors, making picks from AirPicks.com, likes to address his employees as ‘baby’, giving small taste of others…, SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!!!, that Jon Lester struggling with pickoff to first base move, hearing the PBP from the gaffe…, Doug and Plow Boy making fantasy deals, Doug sideways with the Astros about them not seeing potential in J.D. Martinez, random Astros players…, doing the Wiffle Ball Tourney on Doug’s birthday according to posting from John Vaughn on the Facebook fan page, Larry Nickel joins the show for the WWE Recap, missing the program last evening, wrasslers pretending to be hurt…, second finishing move sometimes needed, perhaps going too far with a steel cage, other kind of interior ideas for cage matches, apparently folks overseas are now hoodwinked by the product according to doubter Doug…, other doings including cough break, next pay-per-view taking place in Chicago, live read for WWE Network, curious about Larry posting question/comment to the lovely Fox Sports Midwest Girls, then Larry commenting on pic of new KMOV anchor, Larry does not want to try Tinder, top five countries, list heavy on JHE, following Larry on social media, Willie has idea for WrestlingFansOnly.com (like FarmersOnly.com), fun to be rich, Alpena with question about windows (support those sponsors…), enormous lines entering Busch Stadium for the Home Opener largely due to metal detectors, sign of the times…, detectors had to be shut down at one point, choosing detectors over the wand, big Homers for Health event coming up, listener apparently shipped a ‘dime’ on DraftKings & would head to St. Barts in the Carribean.
SEGMENT 3 – Song from “Scarface” doesn’t seem that appropriate after Cardinals loss, listeners giving a piece of their mind to Dan Rosen after his segment, Jenifer Langosch of the MLB.com joins the show, tough Home Opener to watch, really like Kolten Wong moving forward on the field plus at the plate, concern about Yadier Molina, did not see great hitting from the All-Star catcher during all of Spring Training, concern about trend spilling to regular season is legitimate, belief that Yadi’s weight loss will eventually pay off in the long term, oddity of the schedule to begin the season, day off here day off there…, guys just seem ready to get pass all the opening stuff and just play some ball, very good start for Cardinals rotation, certainly believe the rotation will be among the best in the league assuming health, doesn’t seem any type of bottom dweller standing out within the Central Divsion, good progress happening with Jaime Garcia who could be close to beginning rehab assignment portion of recovery, the left-handed pitcher still weeks away from being discussion for Cardinals, loving the “Tradition Meets Today” marketing, players have almost become use to compartmentalizing emotions especially with memorial for Oscar Taveras, also moment of silence for our friend Bryan Burwell, seeing a number of the recent moments such as Matt Adams HR off Clayton Kershaw, just the amount of moments going back over the past decade-plus, wondering if Tony La Russa maybe regrets retiring from managing when he did, sounds like Busch Stadium has a lot of snacks with 3,000+ calories, Willie encourages Doug to indugle, worry about health later…, The Cat curious about Doug’s favorite donut, the cinamon twisty, jelly donuts, best jelly for jelly donuts, taking half the donut…, love our new Cal May sound involving Jason Heyward, more on donuts, suspension earned, that wonderful burger at Llywelyn’s, other specials happening around here, Chris calls again…, POT ‘EM DOWN!!!, other donut/burger suggestions, Mike Lee calls, another suspension…, wondering if Oakville is nicer than Mehlville, confusion over some joint closing, nuns thwacking kids on the hand, played better music getting ruler to the knuckle, Doug didn’t like playing the clarinet, EOTD contest and listeners have gone after guests before today.
