sports radio

I haven't written in a while. There hasn't been much to write about in a while. Ho hum.

However, this story is funny to me, so I will share it in hopes that you will likewise find it amusing.

I listen to a specific sports radio talk show on Monday and Wednesday afternoons when I'm driving to Ball State. So I only listen for 2 hours a week. I listen to this particular show because my fav sports columnist is one of the hosts/talk show guys and sarcasm is funny to me. I wouldn't listen just because of the other guy; he get's anoying. On Monday, they were talking to callers about the debacle that was the last Colts game up in Green Bay at the (not so funny when everyone is saying it) "not yet frozen tundra," Lambau Field. This particular guy called in simply to reassure Bob & Eddie (the hosts/talking guys) that the Colts loss (30-something to 14, where they've now lost 3 games in a division where the leader is having a perfect season so far) really isn't so bad. Furthermore, this caller kept saying that the Colts are exactly where they want to be. They (the Colts) will be able to just turn on the momentum when they want to.

Bob just about went balistic on this guy. And, I agree. What is the caller thinking?? Who wants to lose? Who wants to get creamed? Who wants to be what, 4 games back in the division? Seriously?

Thank you caller. You made my hour drive better on Monday.

"Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that." Bill Shankly (not that I agree with this quote, but some of the callers and listeners to sports radio certainly believe that it's true)
