Backbackbackbackback ... to the 1995 All-Star Game Right Here in Texas

Categories: Texas Rangers

 Lyle Lovett sang the National Anthem. Nolan Ryan threw out the first pitch. Joe DiMaggio was on hand. Barry Bonds and Cal Ripken Jr. opposed each other.

And, in the NL's 3-2 win at the brand new Ballpark in Arlington, the Marlins' Jeff Conine was the MVP for his pinch-hit homer.

Somehow 16 years ago feels like only 16 days ago.

as much as richie deserves his nut kicking, can we all revisit snake's blowup over TC's prank?i cant believe he reacted that way on air.he ripped Fernando for vetoing his counterprank.he then calls in to BAD Radio and ripped Dan for hiring a night nurse for his daughters.all b/c his wife woke up.what a p-whipped vag!

as bob so eloquently put it, "it was a tough day to be a snake fan" that day.hey snake, next time she gets upset about anything on the ticket, how about u borrow bob's move and calmly walk her to the curb, make her look at the house and remind her that THATS what ktck built.cuz god knows she wasnt ever gonna live in a nice house like that by still being a sales bimbo!

ah, i said it.and it felt great!

also, loved listening to the orphanage that wknd and even gen-x davey admitting that the p1's hate for the snake is at an all-time high.meanwhile, TC's following is at an all-time high.

I love Bobs move, and do it often. Woman, do you think these diamonds dig themselves? Do ya! ..I do that all the time, and we all giggle. (tip to the unmarried/able, Momma ain't happy, nobodies happy) Your welcome..that was a bit of the Broken end. Sponsered solely by The Cove in SA, and my unfortunately 1:00 drive home through some Loop..I don't know right now. Night, night!

Meh. Richie, Do you even like doing this blog anymore? Have we beaten you down?

I hope he has, cause I'll take our banter any day of the sportyweek over his mailed in bs. I'm a p1 of the sporty since damn near day one, and it didn't suck up in heara til his "radio" gig. Merten is hard on banter folks like us, but he never talked down either. Fire RW, Hire SM! (not merkin, he'd start charging or somesuch)Bobby W commented on my ender (pats meself on back) that we are the future of blogging..and I agree. If'n we got to demote RW's uptown "buddies" comments and Rooster/fake rooster/fake Kergs and rid the joint of RW's possibly embellished douchiness..we have a pretty nice place. Don't bring Mom nice, but you bring your Pops, type of place.I'll bring the Broken End this week too, on the road in Davy's final place of employment now..look forward to getting back to the Fort, and kissing the babies.. Good job Sporties, Stay Hard!

Radio opinions, because I can.

--The past few weeks have confirmed the Musers are the best in DFW by far. Missed 'em, happy to have them back and refreshed--Cirque is Ben & Skin-esque, so kinda good, kinda bad. But a better fill in than Arnold.--Chris Arnold seems like Jaromir Jagr--you have to ask why he's back now. Dude's reading off Wikipedia presenting it as fact and is stuck in "remember when?" mode. Meh.--Elf has turned himself into a terrible yuk monkey. Why does he let Josh take the lead and just wait to make lame, obvious jokes? Elf, you're so much better than that.--What's the deal with Galloway? Is he really supposedly suspended, or is it one of his extended vacations? Either way, the show is completely generic without him. Might as well be Sporting News Radio.--I gave Gavin 5 minutes on two different days last week. Both times he was going down on Romo. It was pathetic pandering in the name of "debate."--Speaking of pandering, I applaud The Ticket for minimizing generic, cliched football talk. July+lockout=don't care about football. Something I wish The Fail would realize, but I must not fit into the new demo. Why don't they just make Redneck Sports 105.3 official already? The promos make it sound like only football, hunting, and NASCAR matter anyway.--New School is terrible. I feel sorry for Jasmine, she deserves better than what CBS has done to her.

I must have missed something. Why did Galloway get suspended?

Josh and Elf are so extremely corny, I can't take it most of the time. New School does suck and so does Mike and Mike. I turn it to The Edge during Muser breaks.

I'm not sure if it's schtick or serious, probably schtick about Galloway. If I remember correctly he takes like a month off in summers. GAC is my Hardline backup since I just can't support the show that will not be named.

Josh & Elf devolve into lists and internet repackages too much, and FAR too many dated references. But at least they're genuine, unlike some people we could mention.

I'm glad Jean-Jacques Taylor is back to just Sunday. Every time I have ever listened to him he brings up that he takes the red pill, not the blue pill, from the Matrix. Every time! The dude needs to come up with something new.

1. So agreed. Thanks to the Unticket for allowing me to catch up on missed bits.2. Soooo Ben and Skinnish. Do those guys still have a show? 3. Poor Chris Arnold. He even uses the same bed E-news does and makes many Corby references(people hate Corby, not a good idea)4. Yeah, Elf has fallen off. He was strong to start with. Listening to those guys in the morning, well, they're not drive time anchors.5. I dunno, I never hit ESPN. 6. Gavin is ok in doses. I like his electronic gadgets segments, the rest of his talk is pretty cliched and homerishness. Has to be hard though, he's on an island by himself.  Is Arnie still on the radio?7. Yes, 105.3 should go redneck. Evening drive is already there and getting a following, might as well go all redneck all the time.8. New school is bad. I applaud Jasmine infusing herself into everything including sexual banter. I'm expecting to turn the station one day and hear her in the middle of a gang bang.

Wow, kind of suprised.  Ratings have been out for almost a couple of hours and Richie hasn't bragged yet?  Rage is up to 4th in PM drive.  They actually beat ESPN-FM.  Of course they still aren't anywhere near to the Ticket (still #1 by a mile), but would have thought Richie would brag ASAP. Then again, when your monthly rank in your target demo goes from 22nd in March, to 16th, to 9th, to 4th in June, (when your local basketball team just happened to be in and win the finals) you might want to hold off on the bragging until you see if you can actually hold on to any of that audience with out NBA finals fever to drive listening to ALL the sports stations. Yep, Ticket went up about a point, ESPN up .3, KRLD_FM up 1.6.

BPIA was in its second season so brand new is hardly applicable.

If your going to cut and paste You Tube videos why don't you take a look at Unfair Park today Bob posted a cool, funny K-Swiss video that has Cuban in it (sports tie) . When he mails something in he does it with class. He also had the common decency NOT to link Mr. Stone's fall video last week in his post about the tragedy.

Second day back from your vacation and you're already doing the YouTube imbed and minimal writing post?

You're far closer to a hack than I am to a stalker.
