Do the football Jets count at sports?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

The Mets are looking for an exemption to allow them to compete with actual baseball teams.
Avatar 6:08pm cbk:

Hi Bronwyn. Missed you and your show. Glad your here. : )
Avatar 6:08pm Danne D:

I dunno, I root for the Bengals :)
Avatar 6:09pm hamburger:

hey sportsy talk surprise!!!! curling, is that sportsy enough for sportsy talk? darts? let's not get into figure skating tho :o)
Avatar 6:10pm cbk:

joey Bananas, the Mafia hit man?
Avatar 6:10pm Danne D:

Curling is totally sportsy :)

They have a curling place in Plainfield, btw :)
  6:10pm squirrelbait:

talk about Superbowl in Jersey next year
  6:12pm blee:

You know who poses a threat to the heat? The Cold.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Kat in Chicago:

Nice to hear your sportsy voice, Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Carmichael:

I know more about curling than I do about hockey.
Avatar 6:14pm hamburger:

curling v bowls... brush scrubbing v knee holding techniques
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Kat in Chicago:

Haha this is the only sportsy thing I will ever sponsor, or would want to!
  Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Ralphine:

Pete Fenson was on the Today Show a week or two ago plugging Olympic curling. I hope his team qualifies--the last US skip was a DISASTER.
Avatar 6:16pm Danne D:

It's so garbage that they are probably kicking out wrestling. Wrestling is as olympic as an olympic sport gets
Avatar 6:17pm hamburger:

so sportsy talk has dismissed curling to the side lines? :D
Avatar 6:17pm Danne D:

@hamburger you should call in :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Carmichael:

Greco-Roman wrestling is too homo-erotic for the average Olympic viewer.
Avatar 6:20pm Danne D:

It's actually harder ice than used for skating
Avatar 6:21pm Danne D:

Pretty sure about that :)
Avatar 6:22pm Danne D:

The ice may be natural but is usually frozen by a refrigeration plant pumping a brine solution through numerous pipes fixed lengthwise at the bottom of a shallow pan of water. Most curling clubs have an ice maker whose main job is to care for the ice. At the major curling championships, ice maintenance is extremely important. Large events, such as the Brier or other national/international championships, are typically held in an arena that presents a challenge to the ice maker, who must constantly monitor and adjust the ice and air temperatures as well as air humidity levels to ensure a consistent playing surface. It is common for each sheet of ice to have multiple sensors embedded in order to monitor surface temperature, as well as probes set up in the seating area (to monitor humidity) and in the compressor room (to monitor brine supply and return temperatures).The surface of the ice is maintained at a temperature of around 23 °F (−5 °C).[14]
Avatar 6:24pm hamburger:

could you call curling the encompassment of an ice hockey penalty shootout zen? probably not. just thought I'd curl it out there.
Avatar 6:24pm cbk:

Anyone care about Formula 1 Auto Racing?
Avatar 6:24pm Danne D:

I'm right. according to the "How Stuff Works" guys. Hockey players prefer ice of 24 to 26 degrees. Figure skaters prefer 26 to 28 degrees. And as mentioned above curlers prefer 23 degrees :)
Avatar 6:24pm Dave E:

Holy Curlers, Batman!
Avatar 6:25pm Danne D:

@Hamburger Curling and the shoot out are opposites. Curling is cool. The shootout sucks :(
Avatar 6:25pm Danne D:

@cbk you think they ever gonna have the race at Port Imperial?
Avatar 6:27pm hamburger:

Throw brush friction into the mix, that is rocket science on brushsticks! / I know not enough of either sport Danne D, but Curling. Curling :oD F1. Hamilton/Alonso/Vettel hmmmmmm.
Avatar 6:28pm Dave E:

Let's talk Lance Armstrong....
Avatar 6:28pm cbk:

@Danne D I hope they do. But what a mess the would be for those little towns along the river.
  6:31pm irban:

what about oscar pistorius?
Avatar 6:31pm Danne D:

And rumour has it that the Rangers wanna change the name of their Hartford affiliate to Rangers (instead of connecticut whale) :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Carmichael:

How about ol' bouncy legs girlfriend killer??
Avatar 6:33pm Danne D:

E Rutherford and the Meadowlands are in Bergen.

WFMU is in Hudson.
Avatar 6:34pm Danne D:

Jets vs Giants would be insufferable :(
Avatar 6:34pm Dave E:

yeah, Oscar Pistorius, he's something to talk about.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Football should be difficult, complicated, stressful, and New Jersey embodies all of those things. There is no more ideal place to hold the Super Bowl.
Avatar 6:36pm Dave E:

Route 80 would be a parking lot if they did that
Avatar 6:39pm Dave E:

How about Martha Stewart curling?
Avatar 6:40pm Dave E:

Where did you go target shooting?
  6:40pm Next?:

Skiing! Skiing! Skiing!
Avatar 6:41pm Danne D:

Curling has a bullseye too :)
Avatar 6:41pm Dave E:

What about Archery?
Avatar 6:42pm Danne D:

Fingernails. I'd be willing to cut my fingernails.
Avatar 6:43pm Dave E:

I'd be willing to cut off my nose hair!
Avatar 6:44pm PoutWest:

Sorry to say that if you knew the truth about Lance you would realize that he is pure evil... yes, he made a lot of money for cancer research but here's the deal - The powers that WERE told him they would cure his cancer but he had to help support the evil agenda by raising money for the 'medical community' - cancer research in particular - which they use to support yet more evil.
Avatar 6:44pm Danne D:

Jerry Buss died - that's sportsy talk AND news of the dead
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Here's a topic: the world is full of eligible, deserving candidates for the baseball Hall of Fame, and thanks to the deadlock over the Three Stooges, none of them got in this year. If baseball writers are this dysfunctional, how can they possibly criticize the sport?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Isn't this song called "Hot Action" or something like that?
Avatar 6:48pm Danne D:

Happy belated birthday Bronwyn :)
Avatar 6:49pm Danne D:

The Bird is the Word
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

You don't need shoes to watch birds.
Avatar 6:49pm Dave E:

You compete by shooting them
Avatar 6:51pm Dave E:

You don't need clothes either.
Avatar 6:51pm Danne D:

I would soooooo count all 1000 geese.
Avatar 6:52pm Danne D:

I'd so be counting a peguin on my list.
Avatar 6:54pm Danne D:

I bet baseball lost out by not protecting "World Series" early enough
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Birdwatching would be more interesting to me if there were something like a three-legged race at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

"Heavy Action" is the Monday Night Football theme, to anyone I may have misled.
Avatar 6:55pm Danne D:

Have a good night sportsy talkers :)
Have a great night Bronwyn :)
