Rubbed Wrong By Nascar - So I'll Write Instead
March 20, 2006
>No radio show today...Nascar got in my way.
>Snow is falling outside my studio window, today is the first official day of Spring, it's hard to believe that two weeks from today the Rockies will meet Arizona at Coors Field.
>The Soprano's last night was a downer. They could have taken all that time that Tony was in dreamland, to show us what else was going on in the soon to be out of control family that Tony runs. In addition, I'm worried that the characters of AJ & Meadow, while nice in supporting roles, will be expanded to the point where it will make future episodes as boring as last night's mess. Last night's episode was by far the worst in the series entire history to this point.
>A very quiet and somewhat relaxing weekend was mine. Two workouts at the Gym - and that was about all she wrote. I'm currently at 205, with a goal to get back down to my playing weight of 180 by the end of May. Go ahead, say I won't.
>The Nuggets roll back into town off of a 5-2 road trip. Big deal. They beat nobody. But they upped their record and their lead in the awful Northwest Conference, so I guess that's pretty good?
>The noose is beginning to tighten around the neck of Avalanche GM Pierre Lacroix. With their loss in San Jose last night, the Avalanche find themselves only two points in front of the 9th place Mighty Ducks for the last playoff position in the Western Conference. Joel Quenville says he isn't sure who will be in goal tonight in Los Angeles. It won't be David Aebischer.
>In yesterday's edition of the Denver Post, you could find the latest in a long line of Diane Carman columns - on how everyone who doesn't advocate the homosexual lifestyle, should learn to do so in a hurry. Carman even referred to some of us intolerant people as, Bible- wielding bigots. Diane my dear, will you ever see the light?
>As I was working out yesterday at the Gym, I for some reason started to think about George Karl. I started to think about King George's girth. I concluded that it is sickening for a former world class athlete like Karl was at one point - to be looking so unhealthy at such a young age. Can't Nuggets strength & conditioning coach Steve Hess help out?
>Did I hear someone ask me how my bracket is doing? Let me be clear, I don't have a bracket, I've never had a bracket, and I'll never have a bracket. I don't do brackets.
>Yes the Broncos have been unwilling participants so far as free agency is concerned thus far. Available cap room may have a lot to do with it. There is no way they could fit John Abraham into their payroll, not with what Abraham has been asking for. Jamal Lewis was a nice thought, until he agreed to remain in Baltimore. Terrell Owens? Someone please send a thank you card to Broncos owner Pat Bowlen for placing principle and dignity for his organization, above whatever Terrell Owens may have brought to his classy organization...which in the end probably would have amounted to nothing but angst.
>The noose around Pierre Lacroix's neck that I mentioned a few spaces up, just got a little more tighter - Anaheim just defeated Dallas IN Dallas tonight, 2-1.
>Yes, the Denver and Colorado airwaves were absent some stimulating and provocative radio today...but at least 950 The Fan had Jim Rome to save the day from being a total talk radio disaster. Right?
>By the way, Colorado Gubernatorial candidate Marc Holtzman on my program tomorrow. Why do these people want to be on my show? Personally I'd love to hear Holtzman or Bob Bueprez on with Hayseed. That would be magical radio.
>Memo to KNUS Radio. Bill Rogan deserves more airtime. Bill, that check will be here by Friday, yes?
>It will be a very special night this Wednesday at the Pepsi Center. The Nuggets and special guest Chubby Checker will look to get into the Guinness Book of World Records during Wednesday's game against the Spurs, according to the ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS.
The Nuggets are seeking to have nearly all of the fans at the Pepsi Center, which has a capacity of 19,099, do The Twist, the dance popularized by the Checker song that shot to No. 1 in 1960. That would break the Guinness listed record of 1,691 doing the dance in the United Kingdom in 2004. I'll be joined by Kenyon Martin at center court to get things started that evening.
>Former Major Leaguer (and Colorado resident)Turk Wendell says that there is another scandal that nobody is talking about. Wendell says that many players in the big leagues are corking their bats. Says there is a guy based Tampa who is getting plenty of work from players sending him their bats to have them corked. I just got a return email from Slimy Bud Selig, he says that Baseball will look into this scandal in the year 2015.
>That was apparently a Mother of a Hurricane (okay, they're calling it a Cyclone) down under. Casualties were few however after authorities posted warnings - the peoples left town for shelters. Ray Nagin, the New Orleans Mayor, he was on top of things like that too...right?
>Back to Turk Wendell. Does he tell the truth? As far as Steroids in a Major League clubhouse that Wendell was a part of a few years ago, he says, One day in one clubhouse I was in, some guys were looking around the room and we figured out that probably 18 of the 25 guys did (steroids) at some point. It was a guess, but Ill bet it wasnt far off."
>How about Quinn Snyder as the next Colorado State basketball coach?
>Paul Tagliabue is retiring as NFL commissioner this coming July. I nominate Scott Hastings as his replacement. What? Hastings did do NFL color commentary for years, didn't he?
>Melania Knauss Trump has had a baby...by Donald Trump. Here is what Trump (Donald) had to say after the baby's birth. "I continue to stay young, right? I produce children, I stay young." As you can see by that statement, Trump has taken baby making to a whole new level. This guy is so butt-ugly, that if not for being born on third base with a running start for home, he'd be dating the likes of Diane Carman. It just goes to show that a lot of money is all it takes for some women to do things with people that they otherwise would not do.
>My dream is to have Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel media columnist Tim Cuprisin come to Denver - and show some people how it's supposed to be done.
>On this up coming Conversation Friday program - among my guests will be Dr. Stanley Monteith - author of a great new book called, "Brotherhood Of Darkness".
>I would pay a lot of money to be able to meet up with Bill Mahr in a boxing match - no, better yet, in one of those Extreme Fighting matches. Can anyone make this happen?
>If you're not a Christian - I think you should die. A death sentence should be sought against you immediately. What? You're a Jew? I think you should face the electric chair but quick. A Mormom? The gas chamber! This is all very intelligent and very reasonable thinking, I'm sure you would agree? Now read the next note below.
>This news hot off the press from Afghanistan! An Afghan man is facing possible execution for abandoning his Islamic roots for of all things...Christianity! "Yes that's true, a man has converted to Christianity. He's being tried in one of our courts," Supreme Court judge Ansarullah Mawlavizada told the Middle East Times. Must be some more of that peaceful Islamic theology that has produced all of this wonderful news.
>Broncos owner Pat Bowlen doesn't do people like Terrell Owens. The man is far too classy. Thanks for taking a pass on the NFL's biggest jackass, Pat.
>I'm back on the radio, Tuesday March 21...unless Nascar is racing again tomorrow?
