|End of the Week Blog!||11.07.08 at 9:30 am ET|
Is that not the oldest cliche in the book? Anyway, I wrote a blog yesterday but erased it by accident! I started by saying that I was happy that we didn’t have to cover politics as much, but the great dynamic about D and C is that we can do it, and do it well! With the exception of Iggy, we let all the democratic views to the top of the list that is why the conversation is so compelling! That is the way we stay number 1 in the morning a wide range of topics, not just sports! I will leave my politics aside and leave you with this, I did see a creative video online the other day, I thought it was funny. Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unnDEWhSbv8
One of the best commercials ever made to pump a product. If you haven’t seen the Heidi Klum, Guitar Hero add, you have to check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqHp4ouH1Nc, anybody wanna doubt Seal? This is why Nick Chach might find a new Guitar Hero under the Christmas tree this year!
Its Called Bruins!
I can’t tell you how happy it makes me that the B’s are actually getting the Claude Julian system. We were told last year that it would take time for the team to pick it up and trust it, that was evident with the end of season push and the Canadians series. Now fast forward to today. The Bruins are now 7-3-2 going into the weekend, and I know it is way to early to say, but hold the 5th spot should the playoffs begin today! Blake changed his number to 26 and lit the lamp for 3 goals! The games they are playing are extremely entertaining, and the goal tending is tremendous. The NHL is an embarrassment, to leave Tim Thomas off the all star ballot is half the reason I have a problem with Gary Bettman! The other is Versus! I can’t find a non Bruins game on a random night. The only night I know of that Versus carries the games is on Monday! It used to be that the 4 letter network carried games, it seemed now, every night! I know I could get the NHL package but at this point in the game, don’t you think the NHL should be giving their product away to the networks because they need to build their national product? For my money Hockey is the best game going. There is constant action! I vent but isn’t that what the blog is for?
Now not because I work for BC, but I truly hate ND. Not their players or coach just ND. The reason for this is because back when I was younger it seemed that they were the only college team on TV. I call NBC the Notre Dame Broadcast Company. I couldn’t take it. I also always disliked them because they always seemed to be good. It seemed that they always were rolling over their opponent. Once I became friendly enough with Coach Jags, I told him, if he only wins one game a year it better be the ND game. I explained to him my hatred for the team. He laughed at me and told me he understood, because of all the national media attention they get, you either love’em or hate’em! So my Ron Borges prediction for BC ND this weekend, BC 72 ND 0, no pressure there ayboys? Thanks for the response to the Mike O’Malley Q and A, and again my apologies to Mike on getting the date wrong, as always you can send comments to email@example.com. Thanks and enjoy the weekend!
|Great Day||11.05.08 at 9:27 am ET|
Today is a great day to be an American. President Elect Barack Obama has a huge task ahead of him. The Nation spoke and he was clearly the best choice in this election and one of the best candidates of the last 25 years.
We’ll get back to sports tomorrow but I leave you with this clip from CNN last night. Like Kevin Garnett says…anything’s possible.

Make sure you hit the polls before they close!

|My Mistake, and my Pick for President!||10.30.08 at 5:41 pm ET|
I wanted to fix an error I made in my last post, 10 questions with Mike O’Malley! I said I emailed him the questions in July. It was actually in August, the 28th to be exact! Mike emailed me my error! Mike I apologize 1000 times! I was just breaking chops. I would also like to take this time to, again, thank Mike for taking the time to answer those questions! I know he is busy with his new gig on NBC My Own Worst Enemy!
A little politics from a guy who would rather let Dennis and Callahan discuss them, it is their show after all. But I am a McCain guy. I am surprised at myself that I actually did a bunch of research on Barack, because for a while I was mixed on who to vote for! I don’t really believe the Obama/Biden ticket on their “tax policy” in the past few weeks they have gone from, a break for those making less than 250,000, to 200,000 and then at the beginning of the week 150,000 from that loose cannon Joe Biden. They can’t get on the same page! Also I can’t get over the Rev. Wright sound clips and video that I have seen and the drops I play on the show. I guy who says “God Damn America,” sorry that doesn’t fly with me. So it comes down to trust for me, I feel that I can trust McCain, trust that he will listen to both sides of the isle, he has the experience that we need, not a guy who is going to have on the job training or that voted present 130 times! I haven’t even mentioned his buddy Bill Ayers, anybody that kicks off his political career in the living room of a guy who participated in bombing the US Capitol and the Pentagon, I’ve got a little problem with that, but don’t let those little facts get in the way of “Change” Iggy!
Just Talk Sports
For those who call or email the show asking for us to talk sports, here is my answer for you, You start, go ahead. What do you want us to talk about? Varitek’s contract? The C’s game 1? Pats Rams. Those subjects have been addressed, but let me let you in on a little behind the scenes, NOBODY calls in on them, they are boring. Folks we are coming to the end of one of the most important elections in our lifetimes, at least in mine. And the talk is far more engaging than how many years they should give Tek. Trust me I would love the guys to talk about a sport I love, hockey, but you can’t really break down a game, the only guy that can do that effectively is Dale! Oh I left out that riveting world series, didn’t you hear Meter explain that the ratings were way down on them? Well they were! Bear with the guys for a few more days then they can bore you with a good 3 months of Tek talk!
