Different Time, Same Tony

The Sports Reporters was on a different time today (3-5 ER) and without both Andy Polley (filling in for Dan Patrick) and Czabe (still at the beach). On the plus side, the fill-ins were regular third guest Chris Knocke and ESPN's David Alridge. And with the show on during PTI's normal taping time, TK called in at the top of the show.

"Carlos Boozer is a snake" is what TK said, without mincing words. Hard to argue with that. TK compared the situation to what happened with Juwan Howard and Les Boulez.

According to DA, the people most angry about the whole thing were other agents, since this screws up things for everyone in the future.

Tour De Lance

IN Listen Up News, the first wive cast has been replaced. I'd never heard of either, so there's no need for you to worry about it.

Tony slams Continental Airlanes, as they were the carrier that TK's son Michael flew when he was in London. They told him he would have to wait 2 days to get a shuttle from Newark to DC. Apparently, the trip involved lots of golf.

There was also a brief discussion of Lance Armstrong and his popularity despite participating in a sport most people don't care about in the US.

More on Coach K

Both Tony and Wilbon wrote about Coach K staying at Duke.

IN his column, TK compared Coach K to Spurrier and Andy wondered about today's athlete. TK poo pooed the idea, noting that Larry Brown and Gregg Poppovich seem to handle them well enough.

TK again pointed out that he wouldn't trade Shaq and would let him sit rather than trade him.

There was also a discussion of Eric Gagne's save streak ending, as well as other baseball streaks and records.
