More on Maggie and other topics

An emailer said that TK should get a baby-proof lock on teh frig. But as TK said, "I just don't want to have one of those."

TK then rapped poetic about the joy of having a dog. Mainly, you get love from the dog, even after you stop doing your radio show and writing your columns.

This nicely segued into a discussion of Qyntal Woods and his pitbull fighting story. TK thinks he needs to go for "re-education" if this story is true, to understand why this is a bad idea.

And this turns into a discussion on athletes and criminality. Leonard Little, Jamal Lewis.

And, the Boulez. Why did Antwoine Jamison play 52 minutes last night in a pre-season game? That, according to TK, is "idiotic." So what if they were going to lose to an expansion team in the pre-season? "They're going to lose to them during the regular season, anyway." Wilbon, of course, thinks they might have a good year.

The Cavalry ain't coming.

TK told everyone that there are no magic bullets. Things have to be done slowly, which is contrary to how the owner has occasionally tried to do things.

Hard as it may be to swallow, the Skins have been more liek Les Boulez and less than the 1980s Redskins. And all the surprise winners of late have led people to expect a "mystery team" to win the Super Bowl.

TK also wonders about why Gibbs doesn't like Ramsey. And Riggo agreed, saying there's been a change in Ramsey after Brunell was brought to the team. And Gibbs is staying with Burnell partially out of loyalty and partially out of not wanting his hand-picked QB to fail.

JOe BUck

We begin by talking about The PTI interview with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. Was Buck's comment about "selling out" mean-spirited or just tongue-in-cheek? Tk apologized if Buck was offended.

This leads to a discussion of whether or not sports journalists should do commercials. TK is against "journalists" doing them, if they are real journalists. Berman opened the flood gates at ESPN doing commercials, which led to Dan, KO, Schtu, Eisen and so on doing them.

The Post has rules about such things, so TK never did any in print or on the radio.

We then got a big discussion about Schtu, who "considers" himself a journalist. We all got a big laugh out of this.

the return of Maggie and the Refrigerator

Ah, an old favorite.

TK had gotten the "invisible fence" to protect the refrigerator from Maggie. But, after seeing her get zapped one day, Tony had the voltage taken out of it.

But now, the collar has gone bad. And for the 3rd time in six nights, Maggie has gotten into the frig.

At least she hasn't gotten into the freezer (which not even Lupica could reach, let alone a dog).

Czabe suggests getting an old-time refrigetator, with a latch. His other suggestion is to get a frig where the freezer is on the bottom.

David Aldridge (today's guest) said that he thought the Maggie stories were fake, but after seeing a story in England where a dog was opening pens and a refrigerator.

Smile and the Redskins (not together)

Tk went to the Brian Wilson concert Sunday night. You can imagine how he raved about it.

As for the Redskins, eh, let's not dwell on the negative. Let's just say it's ugly and move on.
