Hi Sportsytalkers and Sportsylisteners and Sportsycommenters! Happy New Year!

Thought you guys might have played "I Got You Babe" for my Bengals' Groundhog Dayesque Performance :(
  6:02pm Still Angry Jets Fan:

Not for us jets fans. We get a 6th round draft pick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Heard any good NFL pass interference stories lately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Studio B Ben:

Being a special guest host was one of the highlights of my 2014!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Studio B Ben:

Sorry about the Bengals, Danne D. That's a total bummer.
Avatar 6:12pm Danne D:

Chris Christie hit the Buffalo Wild Wings Button
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I hear the NFL is considering going from 12 playoff teams to 14 in the future. I'd like to know how they'd schedule the playoffs with that many teams. The current 12-team format seems to be working out pretty well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm redkayak:

You guys have all the luck. I wish MY governor was in an owners box...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Studio B Ben:

The shame of it is not only did they not call the PI call, but they could have called defensive holding for grabbing the Lions player jersey, or Unsportsmanlike for Dez coming onto the field without a helmet to argue about it.
  6:14pm Still Angry Jets Fan:

Must we have the camera on the owners box to see jerry jones celebrating? I hTe that!
Avatar 6:14pm Danne D:

(that was New Orleans with the power outage - last year's Super Bowl had the brilliant transit situation)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Did the refs have some fun on Jerry Jones' party bus before the game? More controversy!
Avatar 6:15pm V Priceless:

Christie priming pump for Texas support in 2016 over Bush! Ha!
Avatar 6:16pm Danne D:

OF COURSE the guy is a Cowboys fan.

Also a Rangers fan.

Two of the least surprising things ever.
Avatar 6:16pm Danne D:

(Christie actually lost a ton of weight btw)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Chris M, Chris T and Governer Chris C.
  6:17pm Still Angry Jets Fan:

The Cowboys better enjoy this win now because the next game isn't going to be so funny
Avatar 6:17pm Danne D:

There were a million things that were penatlies when the Bengals did them that the refs totally let go in the Bengals game :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Kali G:

I opened the windows and looked around me all the time when I was with friends and family visiting Detroit this past Christmas, and it is not all decay and destruction. It is there living and breathing by all means, but Jim has only sees the city as destroyed, gone, nothing more. Jim is blind to the heart and grit of the people that exist there, creating and fighting the odds of media bias and hipster better than thou attitudes he embodies!
Avatar 6:19pm V Priceless:

Chris T, M, C !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm redkayak:

Am I the only one that saw the Lions receiver face-masking the Cowboys defender on that recalled penalty?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The NFL Network played the Dallas and then the Detroit radio commentaries of the PI play. They each called quite differently, as you may expect.
Avatar 6:22pm northguineahills:

Basically, the FA cup starts w/ divison 10 (conference).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Kali G:

People in Detroit listen to FMU via the internet, but with the sucky attitude Jim has toward the city, why should they support this show, and why should they show up and give anything during the Marathon? There are consequences to the uppity attitudes toward the working and middle class folks of the Motor City by a DJ sports hipster wearing New York centric social blinders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A vine loop of the interference play: vine.co...
  6:34pm patrick:

hey Jim you can stay with me when you come visit Detroit.... also I wont stop pledging
  6:34pm Jim the Poet:

I'm there!
  6:36pm patrick:

when the knicks come to town later in the season we can watch the pistons blast um...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Kat in Chicago:

I like Detroit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm davex:

Worst Islanders games to watch, last night.
Avatar 6:38pm drewo:

Mumps have gone viral.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Kali G:

I can be an A-hole when the city I'm from gets marginalized or seen in one dimension on this show, but I love this show, I listen whenever I can. Yes, Detorit has huge problems and way too much decay, but 5 to 6 hundred thousand still live, work and create there. So sorry for being harsh toward Jim and the show, OK, he's not a hipster, for Brownyn does not lie. Please go there this coming spring or summer, do a show there, I think you will see the other side, and the people there will embrace you. Plus, no matter what, I will always support FMU, just not sure about this show for now. Take care and Love really, you know, Detroit Love, a kiss with leather studs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm redkayak:

Yes, Bronwyn - the greening of Detroit is indeed happening. I have a buddy over there in the middle of that!
  6:39pm Danne D:

thanks for the adoption props :)

...detroit, detroit.
got a hell of a hockey team!
  6:39pm Robert:

Redkayak, I didn't watch, but if by "facemasking" you mean not grabbing the face mask, but face GUARDING, the NFL legalized face guarding against receptions around the turn of the century.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm davex:

The Red Wings play in downtown Detroit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm redkayak:

@Robert. Could be... Both players were all over each other!
  6:43pm Danne D:

I love the Red Wings - Devils won their first Cup vs them :)
Avatar 6:43pm dale:

bronwyn, can you combine douche of the week and news of the dead into dead douche of the week?
  Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Ralphine:

When I was a kid, we used to say booyow, which I think is much better than booyah or booyeah.
  6:45pm Robert:

Face guarding is one of those things that the rules makers are ambivalent about in the long run. NCAA last year for the 1st time made it pass interference. NFL & the NFSHSA for a long time had it as interference, but NFL changed it to no longer be interference ~2000. Canadian football has long had it as interference.
  6:45pm patrick:

plenty of room!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm davex:

John Sterling used to do Islander games on the radio.
Avatar 6:50pm drewo:

Sterling's broadcasts are always good for a few laughs.
  6:50pm Robert:

He did the NY Stars (WFL) too (with Emerson Boozer). I used to like Sterling, at least for baseball, but that time is long past. Last year I listened to Yankees-Mets on the Mets station and was amazed how much more they told about the game.
  6:51pm Danne D:

lot of Cowboys fans his age - Super Bowl VI he'd be age 9 or so
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm davex:

Jiggs McDonald did the game last night and is a hockey broadcasting great. He did the Islanders games during the dynasty years.
  6:53pm Robert:

The hockey games Sterling used to do were of the WHA team, whose original name slips my mind now but changed to the Golden Blades.
Avatar 6:53pm drewo:

Did Jim also get lots of replacement ribbon?
  6:54pm Robert:

NY Raiders.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm SeanG:

Hey Jim, where can I read your poems?? tuning in from summahville MA
  6:55pm Danne D:

nite all :)
Avatar 6:56pm dale:

did jim ever write a poem for andrea?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Kali G:

I'm wishing Bronwhwn and Jim the best creative new year with Sportsy Talk, Poetry, Music and the prep for their summer Detroit Show!!!
Avatar 6:56pm dale:

this hour is the most sportsy hour of my week. i listen for the comedy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Studio B Ben:

Sportsy 2015 is off to a fantastic start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm davex:

Thanks guys, and good night everyone!
  6:58pm Robert:

Ack! I meant Raiders was the previous name of the Golden Blades.
Avatar 6:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks guys!
