Yeah Jeetz! It's Sportsy Talk!

I have a poem (not entirely original), but I can't call in since I'm at work. I'll post it here instead.

This Is Just To Win The Super Bowl (with apologies to William Carlos Williams)

I have intercepted
The pass
That you threw
Towards Welker

And which
You were probably
Would score

Forgive me
it was too wobbly
so off target
and so easy

Oh, what, it was me? I thought I lost it! I didn't know! I'll write you right now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Sounds like swimmer Michael Phelps may be coming back from retirement.

Michael Phelps can really swim!
How would you like to be like him?

Am I correct that

Thanks Danne! I will try to do you proud (as I know from your calls you'd be a great co-host)!

My favorite pitch
was Gaylord Perry's puffball.
A cloud of rosin.

Email sent to Bronwyn. Yay! Thanks for reading my poem!
  6:19pm Marie:

Ball, ball, ball
Ball, ball, ball

I saw the ball
I knew the ball

That was the ball
that hit me in the head
as I lay in my
sports arena-proximal bed

Dan Bodah Machine!
He's live on the phone right now!

@Danne: They keep reading the email addresses instead of our commenter names. It's a little strange.

Tug McGraw has passed
It was in 2004
It is a sad fact :(

Tug McGraw's Nickname

In the Frozen Four, U. of Minnesota lost to Union College on Saturday. They won the game before on a last-second short-handed goal against UND.
Avatar 6:38pm dale:

i heard a reading of casey at the bat by the author, ernest thayer on a 78 rpm rekkid - he is so over dramatic that he sounds utterly insane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Studio B Ben:

Casey at the bat
his arms guarantee home runs
he is on steroids
Avatar 6:38pm EzSezz:

If Tug weren't already plugged
Or at least planted
I'd suggest you pull the plug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Kat in Chicago:

EFD played this too but I listened to him on archive this week and was able to skip past it... not so now :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Kat in Chicago:

Would you like us to tell you
When this is over?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Kat in Chicago:

It's okay Danne, Bronwyn and Jim are sufficiently distracting.

I made bets on "Lost". I won one, and then lost on "Lost".

We all lost on "Lost" by the end.

Foam rave parties are still a thing?

There's a famous recording of Casey at the Bat by a guy named De Wolf Hopper who sounded pretty insane.

Me and some friends go to the Waffle House every Christmas at two in the morning.
  6:51pm Robert:

I got my foam formula (initially developed as non-irritating bubble bath for a friend's children) used a bit for foam parties. One guy in Miami tested it in the driveway of his shop, inviting neighborhood chidren to play in it, and then it rained, and it stood up much longer to rain than other foams he'd used with his equipment.

Former FMU DJ, Kenny G(oldsmith) transcribed an entire Yankees radio broadcast (with John Sterling) and published it as the book Sports.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Kat in Chicago:

That's quite a claim to fame, Robert!
  6:54pm Robert:

@ Studio B Ben:

I later figured out that "Lost" (created by a Jersey friend of mine, BTW) really was a mystery, with a false conclusion to throw us all of the trail.

Are they properly called 'Deeps' or 'Poughnuts'?

will be playing your old themetune, Bronwyn, the Irene Moon one (because I'm doing an organ show)
  6:56pm Robert:

"Lost" turned out to have been a version of "The Lost Special" by AC Doyle. The characters all had (or were) doubles, there was no time travel (just an illusion produced by people meeting their doubles under mind control influence), there was nobody surviving airline wrecks...lots of stuff like that.

For the national month of poem,
I haven't written, although I know 'em.
So I'll head out with a rhyme, and double it,
Easy to make one--when it's only a couplet!

That sounds way cooler than both the ending of the show and my disappointment of the ending of the show. I'd start watching that if they started to air it.
