It's also what the kids were drinking ten years ago and maybe they still are - I've moved on a bit.

Funny thing is that I mostly stopped listening to sports talk radio when The Mic made it on air. And the most unnerving thing for me was to hear Rome on FM. It just doesn't fit. My years with him were either on AM or over low-speed Internet (back when 1070 didn't carry all four hours - yes, the show used to be four hours). So I might start listening to him again now that he's back on AM.

I've also sometimes heard Lucas/Lepay and they're solid. I've tried listening to the others and Dan Patrick was only good when he regularly had Keith Olbermann on. At any rate, all those talking heads/drinks are way better than the wine cooler that was The Fabulous Sports Babe. Un. Fucking. Listenable.

And I forgot about this - but that's because I only listen to The Score during baseball season. It used to drive mrs. nevermore nuts when I'd drive her to work listening to Mike North in the morning. He's entertaining in small doses but someone should have taught him that it's not necessary to be a sexist and homophobic pig in order to succeed in sports talk.

Yeah, North sucked ass. However, you'll note the past tense-- he's thankfully no longer with The Score.

But only if you have actual talent.

Unfortunately, Dan Levy reports that TK will not be returning for another 6-month stint on radio. Looks like he hasn't gotten fired from MNF yet after all.
