Tall Drink of Water

Today, in the studio was former Bullet George Mureshan. So, TK told a story...

In the Cap Center, there was an athlete entrance that the press had access to in the back of the arena. In George's first year, TK brought Michael to a game and he was outside the locker room. And after the game, George gave Michael a roll of Lifesavers like candies. And, according to TK, this was the nicest thing he ever saw an athlete do.

On the Coach K topic, TK said there were only three teams you must listen to when they come calling: The Knicks, Celtics and Lakers.

TK thinks that Gary Williams might be the happiest man in America today. (I'd say it might be Dean Smith, too.)

And briefly, we discussed the holiday weekend. Czabe loves the 4th of July. TK< as we know, hates it, since it's just an excuse to get "sticky and blitzed."

No whining

Tk was late today, since he was out playing golf (no PTI today). Lightning warnings sent him in early, only finisheing thru 16.

There was a brief talk about the Coach K/Lakers story, since TK really hadn't heard about it before now.

Instead, we talk about the tendinitis Tony has is in his right forearm. There were doctors and kvetching, but no shots, yet.

Probably more about this tomorrow.

Keeping Up with Jones

Today, we discuss Tony's column today about Marion Jones and USADA, which was a refutation of Mustang Sally's column fron over the weekend.

Although it's not the side TK is usually on, he wonders about all teh circumstancial evidence and whether there's fire to go with all the smoke.

Nailing Bud to the Wall

Yesterday's PTI made the news, as Tony and Ryan were talking about the Boner Drugs. TK asked where all these horny women were, that men need to take so much of these drugs?

There was a discussion about the articles in the Post about Bud Selig. Tk's short version: "Bud belongs in prison." And the Post skewering Bud probably doesn't help the city's chances of landing Les Expos. But Tony think there might be a reverse psychology thing at work and Bud will bring baseball to DC in spite of the articles.

This dovetailed into another discussion about where the best place for a staium would be, inside the city. This, in a round about way, led to Tony's greatest line ever. "I'm glad Jack Kent Cooke named his son Ralph and john (the "city" where Fed Ex Field is) and not Peter and Enis."
Peter and Enis.

Purple Parking

Tony got primo parking, which, as you know, is all that matters.

Tk walked 9 holes early Sunday morning with John Daly's group. Daly's drives were 60-70 yards past his playing partner. And they went super quick.

Tony also talked about the story making the rounds about the North Korean president who shot, in his first round of golf, shot 5 holes-in-one and went -38 under par. BWAH HA HA.
