baseball in DC (again)

TK is not yet on the DC baseball bandwagon (pardon the use of the word bandwagon). He defers to Bos on the matter.

TK is under the weather , thanks to the difference in climates between DC and upstate new york.

And the topic briefly turns to the Shawn Green brouhaha (Again). Why do we discuss this every year? it never changes. TK doesn't think you should criticize a player for missing games for thinks like the birth of their children. And religious reasons are the same thing.

The post-mortem on Listen Up!

Andy's review of the show: "Not as funny as I hoped."

TK's whole day was spent dealing with people talking about the show. And, to Andy, he said lovingly "shove it."

TK's thoughts on the matter.... He was pleasantly surprised, since he feared for the worst.And he was happy so many people called to wish him well, even though he really has nothing to do with the show.

TK told Jason Alexander that "I don't see myself in you, but I HEAR myself in you."

And the character can't be as "mean" as TK in real life, especially for a family sitcom.

But TK's daughter ... "not too thrilled" about the whole thing.

"It's so weird to see someone playing you on TV." So, TK talked to Mitch Albom it today, since he had Hank Azaria play him in the "Tuesdays with Morrie."

Most importantly, it won its time period.

Listen Up!

Listen Up! debuts tonight at 8:30 ET on CBS (and CBS HD where available). The reviews, including TK's own Post, were not kind. But who are we kidding? We're all going to watch anyway.

TK was on this morning, discussing the Skins' debacle in the Meadowlands. Much like Czaban, TK would not be adverse to giving more snaps in practice to Hasselbeck. (Brunnell is officially out for the +MNF showdown with the Pokes.)

Talk also quickly turned to the Ryder Cup, where TK joined the mob in killing Hal Sutton (for teaming Tiger and Phil), Phil (for the equioptment change) and Chris Riley (for bagging the Saturday PM matches).

Remember, 8:30. Check your local listings.
