Pre-Emption Horror Stories and NBA basketball

Tony is angry right now, since PTI has been bumped to the Deuce. For Women's College Softball. "That's a Joke."

TK talks about Bob Ryan's column in the Globe today (about the crappiness of today's NBA). Tony is on the other side, since he sides with the Camp Counselor, even against "the Quintessential American Sports Writer." Larry's Pistons are not Pat Riley's Knicks.

Programming Note: TK is on Sports Reporters this week, along with the aforementioned Bob Ryan and probably, unfortunately, the Napoleon of Sportswriting.

We begin by talking about the kids and the fat guy fighting over the bat in Cincinnati. TK actually drops a Henry Clay reference, presuming causing a great deal of confusion to the WTEM sports talk radio audience.

TK segues nicely to the Ron Artest middle finger fine and discusses how viewing things in slo-mo often alters perception of an event after the fact. This turned into a discussion about Karl Malone's elbow and his not being suspended for the elbow he threw earlier in the week.

And...the draft lottery, where the Wizards are a participant. TK says he probably would take Okafor, but it's not a great year. And Les Boulez cannot, TK says, take another HS kid.

Also, there was a blurb in Martzke's column today about Tony's desire to do radio locally in DC, but also something that would be available outside the city, possibly on XM Radio.

Goff shots, nothing but Goff shots (and cicadas)

TK was great, so he says, on the links today. He shot 81 today and apparently only "missed" one shot all day.

Cicadas are stupid and clumsy, TK says. They fly into you when you're trying to hit a golf shot.

The basketball game from last night was also briefly discussed. TK did not hate it nearly as much as Andy Polley.

Victory? I guarentee it.

Today, lots of talk about Rasheed Wallace's guarentee of victory tonight in the Pistons' game 2 vs the Pacers.

Also, we learn why TK said "Snappy Jones" on PTI last week. It seems George Michael said it on the basketball related show they do in DC and it stuck in Tony's head.

Segueing nicely, TK asked what has happened to Bill Walton, who is barely visible (which isn't easy mind you) on the EPSN/ABC coverage of the NBA playoffs.
