Be True to Your school

Tony talked about his graduation speechat Mariet today.

Tony talked about his famous "Driver's Ed" story.

Tony didn't read his speech, which impressed a lot of people, but he does have 12 years of radio. Also, he had rehearsed it plenty over the last week.

There was a brief discussion of Zach hosting Around the Horn this week. It's nothing permanent, according to TK, and if he was making the decision, they would give the job to Stat Boy.

Pomp(ous) and Circumstances

Tomorrow is when TK gives the Graduation Speech at Mariet. Tony will not give away any of his material today. Tune in tomorrow to hear some of it.

Talking about the Senior dinner the other day segues somehow into a discussion of ANIMAL HOUSE.

The Camp Counselor

Lots of discussion about last night's Game 2. As you would imagine, TK sticks up for Larry Brown.

During the gab fest, you could hear Mayor McCheese yelling in the background, disagreeing with TK.

Also, the Larry Bird "white guys inthe NBA" topic came up. Tony said if Larry and Magic agree on the issue, he agrees with them.

Columns! We got Columns!

Tony Had a column today, comparing Larry Brown and Phil Jackson. You can just imagine what it said. In fact, go read it. We'll wait for you. TK likes both guys - Phil since he played for the Knicks and we all know about the Camp Counselor.

Czabe, of course, took some shots at Captain Smudgie, as you would expect.

TK thinks the Lakers will win big tonight.

TK was griping about PTI getting bumped from ESPN yesterday by the 2003 World Series of Poker. TK wonders about the Poker Fad. Ask Norman Chad.

There was a brief discussion of the Mark Cuban reality show. TK, of course, is very curious about it, since the show will air against LISTEN UP! in the fall.

BTW, Wilbon also had a column today, about the Finals.

RIP President Reagan

We begin with Smarty Jones. TK found it interesting that the owner and jockey of Birdstone apologized for winning and spoiling the Triple Crown for Smarty Jones.

As for the death of Ronald Reagan, TK wondered about the shutdown of DC on Friday. Rumors going around town that the subway will be closed. Also, the funeral on Friday is the same day as the Mariet School graduation.

Like most people on the opposite side of the political spectrum, TK praised Reagan's charisma and communication skills.Tony also mentioned, like some media critics, that it's odd for the media to be so overly praising of Reagan, since he was often at odds with the press during his Presidency.
