The Mix: “I’ll gnaw your right paw off.” – Norm
The Open: “In the gang world, we use something called ‘Fluffy Fingers’”. Confusion ensues over when the show actually got the Ted Danson, “…I never listen to Bob and Dan on Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket” liner. What if Guillermo from Jimmy Kimmel was hosting the Oscars?
12:35 – Stars Trade Deadline: The trade deadline is fast approaching and the Dallas Stars have a question to address; whether or not to trade the great Brad Richards. His concussion status has some teams weary about trading for him as a “rent–a–player” to finish out the year. Chances are he will be a Dallas Star by the end of this show.
12:55 – Oscar Talk: Consensus is that James Franco blew it as an Oscar host; personally, I liked his bit (yes, that was a bit). Anne Hathaway had more costume changes than a Victoria Secret runway show. The King’s Speech won Best Picture, not surprising. Dan believes that it won because of the “stuttering”; like playing retarded but not quite.
1:15 – More Oscars: Donovan comes out and says that Reese Witherspoon doesn’t have an ounce of hot on her, but he’d still do stuff to her. Justin Timberlake should’ve hosted the Oscars. Kirk Douglas was pretty on point for a dead man. Melissa Leo dropped an F-bomb. We need Ricky Gervais.
1:40 – NBA Talk: Bob has never met a Toronto Raptors fan. Alongside the Oscars, the NBA had a great game between the Knicks and the Heat. LeBron had an amazing pass to the inept Ericka Dampier. Bob says that LeBron hasn’t proven that he is clutch as a closer; this sends Dan jumping offsides multiple times. It looks like LeBron is better with a few possessions left while Wade is the more clutch final possession player.
2:00 – Ticketstock Talk: The vast majority of this segment is dedicated to some of the songs that were performed by The Timewasters. Stay tuned to the Ticket website for videos.
2:25 – NFL Combine: Obviously everyone is tuning in for around the clock coverage of the NFL Combine. The combine should be used to possibly reinforce/diminish your thoughts on a player, not create your thoughts. Some of the more fascinating parts of the combine, the player interviews, are not shown. In referencing QBs, there is a new hot phrase being thrown around "Can he spin it?". It's spreading like wildfire.
2:40 – Cam Newton Audio: Check out this interview with the NFL Network after his combine workout. He comes across with a very likable maturity about him. Judge for yourself if you’d be comfortable with him being the QB of your team.
3:00 – WTDS: Dan would like to have a camera on Grubes at all times, like the Truman Show. On this day in 1849, the California Gold Rush started. Happy Birthday to Mario Andretti, Eric Lindros, Bubba Smith, Dean Smith, Icky Woods and Dead Men Don’t Wear Rubbers. Spares are Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Vincent Askew and Antone Davis.
Listen to BaD Radio everyday from 12 – 3pm on Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket. I do, and I has opulence.
