No Tony today

As mentioned yesterday, Tony is steaming (by some means of transport) to Augusta for the "tunament" this weekend. so no radio.

PTI was Wilbon with special guest star David Aldridge in the TK chair.

Interestingly enough, Norman Chad became, I think, the first non-ESPN regular from the radio show to guest on "the show that replaced him." The guy that replaced Tony did say (correctly) how funny Norman was and kindly put TK in the group of funny sports guys worth reading, which also included the always great Charley Pierce.

More Freddy

TK vented about Freddy Adu today in the third of his media, writing a column on the same things he's been saying all week, about Freddy not starting and whatnot. Click HERE for column.

Not surprisingly, Tony ranted about the "soccerheads" that complained about the column and other things. You can imagine his response.

Also, TK and the fellas talked about Kwame Brown. Tony said don't get rid of him yet.

The big news today is that Tony will be going to the Masters (for the first time) this weekend. Monday's recap (on radio and PTI) should be epic.

Good Cop, Bad Cop -- This time for real.

Mr. Tony told us today about his run-in with the law. Fortunately, it was a "good" Mr. Tony moment and not a "bad" Mr. Tony moment. The officer that had pulled TK over let him off, but told him to get back on the radio, because he can't stand the new guy. Testify, Man in Blue.

Tony, Andy and Steve (along with Paul White from McPaper) also discussed the Women's bsketball game,along with speculation about why Sally Jenkins didn't write about the game (possibly because she was written books with Pat Summitt). Also briefly mentioned was the Caps getting the first pick in the NHL draft. TK expects Teddy Log-On to pick "Kwame Brownsinski, from Russia."

No radio today

Due to the Orioles game on WTEM (Sportstalk 980), there was no Tony @ 5.30 segment today.

Today on PTI was the return of Psychic Tony. The guest was ESPN golf analyst and Maryland alum Scott "Fear the Turtle" Van Pelt. Tony also yelled about Freddy Adu again. It turns out Substitute Stat Boy (aka Matt) won the PTI Office Pool.

There was a Chat House today on the Post's website, with only Wilbon participating. (Yes, that was my question in the Chat about Wilbon's wearing shorts on PTI yesterday.) Wilbon also had a column in the Post today about Monday night's basketball game.

You Say Bonjour, I say Adu

Mr. Tony was all revved-up today, amazingly about Freddy Adu. TK couldn't believe that Adu didn't start and said whoever made the decision to play him in the 61st minute should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Over on PTI, tonight's guest was TK's close personal friend and Cuse coach Jim Boeheim. Also, a sure sign that Spring is here: Wilbon's first day on the show wearing shorts.

Lots of columns in the Post today, but none by Tony. You've got your choice of Wilbon, Junior and Norman (Plus Boswell and Mustang Sally).

Another Day, another Wilbon column

A two-fer for MW. A column from San Antonio on the Final Four (and its lousy refereees) and an appearance on the Sports Reporters, with Ryan and the Little Prince. Too bad he was on the far side of the set, which made him unable to "reach over and smack" Lupica, as so many people implore him to do whenever he's on the show.
