Whitt's End: 6.24.11

Categories: Whitt's End

Whitt's End - reaper.jpg
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:

*Love the Mavs' draft. Turning the 26th pick into Rudy Fernandez is a big win. Think of Fernandez, 26 and a three-year veteran with the Blazers, as a younger, better Peja Stojakovic. Dallas often fibs about new players being "rotation guys" -- see Dominique Jones, circa 2010 -- but Fernandez can play. Right now. Besides, DeShawn Stevenson and Peja are free agents and Corey Brewer added nada this year. Bueno.

*Dirk Nowitzki will throw out the first pitch tonight before Rangers-Mets in Arlington. Here's hoping he receives a bigger ovation than the one regularly reserved for Dubya Bush.

*Josh Hamilton says the reason for the disparity in his production between day and night games -- .122 to .374 -- is the color of his eyes. I'm not making that up. As someone with blue eyes, that's a load of bullshit. Somehow blue-eyed Joe Mauer hits .321 in the sunlight. Two words: Sun. Glasses.

*If you hear a new voice at Cowboys Stadium next year filling in for veteran public address man Jody Dean, it just might be 105.3 The Fan's Roger Emrich. Just write his name down and keep it handy.

*Dear Dallas Morning News, please stop. I don't need you any more. I don't want you any more. I've tried to cancel my subscription since March. When I got my bill I sent it back with a "cancel" notification. But for the last three months -- at least 10 times per week -- one of your representatives has called me to remind me my payment was due and urging me to re-up, all the while continuing to toss an unwanted paper in my yard each morning. When I say cancel, you tell me I can continue subscription with those reps but they somehow don't have the ability to cancel me. On your website I'm allowed to make changes to delivery service, but not an ultimate cancellation of service. So I call the 1-800 number you direct me to and I've yet to speak with a live human. Thursday -- swear, I have witnesses and a phone bill -- I was on hold for 38 minutes. Smells to me like you have an army of folks who can badger me into continuing my service, but only one assigned to handle cancellations. And he apparently only works Sunday nights 11:45-11:46. There was a time when I began each morning reading the DMN while listening to The Ticket. I've grown out of both.

*Hot.

*Not.

*Hey, whatever happened to Charlie Sheen?

*Mark Cuban will pay the $340,000 bill for last week's championship parade. I'd say the majority of that was to ensure stuff didn't happen rather than stuff that did happen.

*Was driving on 75 south Thursday behind an 18-wheel rock-hauler. The protective tarp on its trailer had come undone and was flapping around while cars behind it were sprayed with a combo of pebbles, dust and rock. On the back of the contraption: a sign that read "Not responsible for flying rock, debris or broken windshields." Good try, but I'm pretty sure you are. Otherwise I'd just drive around with a sign that read "Not responsible for wrecks" while playing bumper cars with folks who drive like assholes.

*Men are pigs and voyeurs and exploit women and yadda, yadda and more yadda. All I know is, out of the four girls I heard respond to this tattoo of Dirk's face on a guy's butt, three of the initial reactions were "Nice ass!"

*Be still my beating heart: 105 days until the Stars open the NHL season at home against Chicago. Who's their coach again, Nastia Liukin?

*Went to my buddy's 50th birthday bash last night. We toasted him with 50-year-old wine and some vintage bottle from 1982. While most of the dudes reacted as if their mouth just orgasmed, I didn't get it. Tasted like the stuff I have in the box on my counter right now. I think what I'm trying to say is that I ain't real sophisticated.

No DMN and no Ticket? No wonder the RAGE has nothing - can't copy material anymore.

whitt, you can be such an arrogant prick. you have grown out of reading the DMN and listening to the Ticket? right. the morning show on the ticket is so much better that what you do in the afternoon. and i like your show. but why dis on the musers? gordon is comic gold. still. and i still read the DMN (at least the website) in the morning while listening to the ticket. i know, i guess cause you are on another station, you have to rag on the ticket, but really, with this comment you come across as a real douche.

I had the same damn experience with the DMN.  They finally gave up after about three months.

I'm not really against hunting if you eat what you kill but that guy is just going to get that gator stuffed and mounted.  Seems a shame.

Ill be glad when richies bullshit suckin on dirks nuts is over. I don't hate dirk. Can't hate someone for doin his thing ang getting paid. I hate the motherfucking racist white media and fans that act like that german bastard is the greatest ever. "He plays the right way. He shoots accurately. Etc.". Its code for "he's white.". Brothers have been slinging their cocks up in the faces of the white bitches that troll the court for over 20 years. Brothers run the NBA . Ever since Larry Bird and his tight ass shorts, undefined physique, and fucking faggot mustache. Now Dirk makes white pussies think they can step to the court again. Keep choking on the blackman's white man sauce you racist pieces of shit.

I cannot beleive that I have that much of an impact on this blog.  I haven't posted since last Friday and there are tiny Kerg's running amuck again.  I did really enjoy the big kerg machine!  Of all the fakes, that one is the most like me.

It had:a reference to the outdoorsa slight nut kickin'humble, poignant wit

I'm not in the business of tipping my hat to the fakes, but, GOOD JOB  "big kerg machine".  Good job.  Watch this spawn a thousand evil Kerg's.

ps-next time maybe bring a nice recipe into the fold, or a Shiner reference, or maybe a story about the Guad, or Enchanted Rock, or Crystal Lake, NH.  Maybe, a, reference to the great Henry david Thoreau.  I once took the exact route across Cape Cod that HDT did 150 years earlier.   Hmmm, and damn near got arrested.

Ignore all the fake kergo posts. The truth is I enjoyed today's Whitt's End. Right now I am embracing my RAGE on 105.3 KRLD-FM, as I do everyday from 2PM to 7PM. Richie Whitt and Greg Williams are joined by Sybil Summers and Armen Williams, broadcasting in 100,000 watts. 105.3 the Fan is also the official home of your Dallas Cowboys, so join me and be sure to check out 1053thefan.com!

How to win fans: Look down your nose at most of your target audience. I'm so happy you entered a new state of consciousness and are far beyond listening to the lowly Ticket anymore. Funny how you have nothing but bad things to say against your two biggest media competitors. The epitome of fair and balanced journalism! Wait...sorry...The Ticket is not your competition. You are competing against Amber Alerts and the Emergency Alert System beeping sound...you are nowhere close to competing with The Ticket. The rest of us slackjawed mouthbreathers will continue listening to something that offers a modicum of entertainment value, something your show has yet to produce.

dubya is still loved here RW, get over it.The JHam blue story is probably a little blown out of proportion.  Sensitivity to light is a legit blue eye situation for many of us.  If he's had Lasik surgery, that can also account for a difference between day and night games.  Either way, just get some good sunglasses and call it good.RW, if you didn't have a show on the fan, I'd say 90% of your sports radio would be listening to 1310.  Tell me I'm wrong?Charlie Sheen was decent in 2 1/2 Men for the first season or two, but as most of these sitcoms go nowadays, they turn everything into sex and bathroom humor to "take it up a notch", which ruins it for me.  I don't mind the occasional inuindo (sp?), but I'm out on junk sitcoms like that.With ya on the wine....don't like it, don't get it.

Don't tease me with Cowboys announcer news until we finalize the Iguodala deal.

I stopped hanging out with people I used to work with when I heard they were talking shit behind my back. I can understand why you don't listen to the Ticket.

DMN is dead and gone to me. Wife gets the Sunday paper for the coupons, and the news in there is already old to me by the time I get to it. I've been harrassed like you have as well, it took me dressing down a supervisor 3 times to finally get them to stop calling.

I stopped playing tennis when all my friends got into golf. It's hard to play tennis by yourself, I suck at golf, but tennis is super gay if you're not good at it.

F the DMN. Not paying for that fish wrapper/bird cage liner.Sorry ladies, not watching you kick around a soccer ball or shoot lay ups. Might watch you swing a golf club, but that is about it. I don't watch men or women play tennis so I will just have to google up the latest hot on the court.

Had some theoretically awesome wine. It didn't taste vastly different than the cheaper stuff. Shitty old wine that has started to turn to vinegar is awful no matter how much you paid for it.

Rudy F in a trade? Ok, fine by me.

This just in: RW still can't muster up a give-a-damn about hockey, but loves him some tennis. Go figure.

Hambone cut it out with the blue-eyes BS. What a crock! Get some shades and some BP. Find the goddamn ball in the day time, you are hitting a rocking .122 at last reckoning. That is a big steaming pile of poo.

I hope they fine the hell out of them for shooting gators if they don't have a license to do so. Stupid m'fers. It would please me no end to see them get their licensed jerked permanently.

While you were on hold with the DMN about your subscription cancellation, I hope you were looking at today's Hot............or Not?  I quit the DMN a long time ago.  Never have bothered to check their money website.  I just go over to the Star-Telegram and grab some news.  The poor womens soccer team will have its whatever handed to them.  Those European gals can play some real soccer.

Revolutionize women's soccer? Where did you get that? Women's soccer is boring on TV because everything looks slower but in person its not bad. Soccer chicks are usually better looking than the other sport broads.

Good draft. I've actually heard of Fernandez.

Why even need to mention W when talking about Dirk throwing out a pitch? Post-baiting?

Hamilton told ESPN Radio it was about some shades he no longer can get a hold of. I would think Oakley makes something that would work for him, but whatevs.

How about the Cowboys worry about actually playing a game this season? And we really don't care about the PA guy. Even when it was frack-hating Georgio.

DMN is worthless. And you should listen to The Ticket so you know how to actually broadcast good ratio that other people tune in to.

Dump truck drivers are just one tiny step above douchebag motorcyclists as far as I'm concerned.

If you're going to a buddy's 50th, that means you're not a twentysomething anymore. Reflect on that.

A decent End, but overall a pretty low quality and low volume week.

- Maybe Josh's baby blues aren't as perfect as your because of all the drug use.

- I don't think you grew out of listening to The Ticket. I think you got your little feelings hurt that you didn't get hired to work there.

- A guy in a neighboring high school to mind got killed when a rock flew out the back of a truck and smashed through his windshield.

- I'm with ya on wine. I don't get it and I don't like it.

- "fat folks need love too", there. I fixed it for ya. It was wrong what he said, but it's also wrong to call a coworker hopped up on Ambien just to laugh at him on the air. Maybe that's just me though.

When I want my Cowboys PA announcer news, I always go to Richie Whitt first!

Nice Ticket jab. Sure to get some people riled up which will mean more comments and page hits for you. Good job RW. And while you are growing out of things, let's try and out grow wearing holey jeans. Sound like a good idea?

So the 'work commitment' you have is riding around the lake on a boat, getting drunk, and looking at boobies. I am sure your friend will totally understand.

Glad you pointed out that you grew out of DMN and 1310. You may be growing out, but you're sure as heck not growing up.

Lake Texoma has some good catfishin' and good ol' boys escaping from the man for the weekend. Please don't pollute their little slice of heaven with your douchiness.

Yes the rant by the pilot was funny. Glad to see Lee Elia is working. (YouTube it if you're too young to remember). But he should still be fired. Crapping in someone's lunch is funny but you should still be fired for doing it, though I'm convinced it's standard practice at Taco Bell.

You playin' tennis this weekend? I'd laugh, but I guess I'm glad to hear you aint doin' karate in the front lawn yet.

Glad to see you have a soft spot for breasts. We'll see if you show the same compassion for me when I get rectal cancer.

Kergie out?

How convenient that the two things he "grew out of" he just happens to get paid to compete against.  Not saying it's wrong since obviously you wouldn't want to support your competitors but quit trying to portray it as something it isn't.
