Welcome to the show

A Special Hello to all the French disco artists listening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How much time will you be devoting to the Jason Pierre-Paul story tonight?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Studio B Ben:

Sportsy Talk's about to blow up like Jason Pierre Paul's hand!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Carmichael:

Dem American goils played a great game dere, am I right?
  6:05pm Jim the Poet:

Sleep with Sportsy Talk on!
  6:06pm P-90:

I'd like to meet a Sportsy Talk Podcast Listener. Probs someone cool to drink a pint with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Carmichael:

According to Colin Cowherd, 6 NFL teams have absolutely no chance of going to the Super Bowl. One of them is the Rex Ryans.
  Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Ralphine:

How about blowing up like Devon Staples's head?
  6:07pm P-90:

The first (only?) ST Podcast Listener puts it on and goes to sleep? OK. I guess.
  6:08pm Cecile and Cheri Pi:

We are at our WMFU meet up in Houghton. We are drunked. Greetings.
  Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Ralphine:

That's the guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Carmichael:

Cecile! Cheri! In Houghton together? No shit ...
  6:09pm P-90:

Devon Staples is world famous for the remainder of this 48-hour news cycle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, Cecile and Cheri Pi. How's the weather there today? Any haze from Canadian forest fires?
  6:10pm P-90:

Welcome Ladies! Er.... Where's Houghton?
  6:11pm Cecile and Cheri Pi:

Carmichaelj were drinking several beersies for you!
  Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Ralphine:

Which train won the subway race at the Yankees game?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm fleep:

Destroying US currency eh? Vandals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Studio B Ben:

I'd like to report that over the Holiday Weekend, I competitively ate one (1) whole cheeseburger, INCLUDING pesto pasta salad and extra icebox cake for dessert. I felt like a champion.
Avatar 6:14pm Marcel M:

The problem is the 4 gets PACKED. And you have to wait for a few to pass during rush hour sometimes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I forget, did anything interesting happen with NASCAR this weekend?
Avatar 6:15pm Marcel M:

Good one Ken! ZING!
  6:15pm Cecile:

We are in Upper Mishigin
  6:16pm Cecile:

Did I say we were drunk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Carmichael:

Drink an IPA for me, ladies. Let me know about the craft breweries when you sober up ... :)
  Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Ralphine:

I took the D from a Yankees game downtown to meet a couple of people at a playground after a wedding(?) shower one time. It was a good ride.
  6:18pm Cheri Pi:

We're in da U.P. She meant to say
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Ike:

Yeah, they were probably booing the rush hour condition of the 4 train. The subway is really a victim of its own success -- ridership is higher than ever but everybody complains. New Yorkers really whine too much sometimes though. I'd much rather ride a crowded subway train than drive in shitty traffic logjams constantly or wait far longer for an overpriced NJ Transit train, but others don't seem to agree.
  6:19pm P-90:

Actually, a "woof-moo" mashed penny machine is a legit good idea! I think the company will pay for the dies if they're persuaded that their share of the vending revenue will be worth it in the long run. If visitors to M. Hall and the station (bands in for live sets etc.) can buy those as souvenirs, unavailable anywhere else, for fiddy cent apiece or 3 for a buck......hmmm...
  6:19pm Cecile:

Yay lady-soccer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Ike:

I like living near the D, @Ralphine. The D rocks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Carmichael:

The latest Sacramento drama: The Kings now have three 7 footers. And Rajon Rondo. I vote for five 7 footers on the floor.
  6:21pm Cecile:

We can't hear you. What are you talking about so we can catch up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Carmichael:

They're talking about lady soccer.
  6:22pm P-90:

"58 yards?! you can't even do that in a video game!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Carmichael:

The Japanese goalie just wandered out too far. She went for a walk, and everyone saw it.
Avatar 6:23pm drewo:

England ladies team finished 3rd, beating Germany (for the first time) in the consolation game. So they done well.
  6:23pm Cecile:

  6:24pm P-90:

Always nice to see England beat Germany. Again. Still.

World Wife-carrying Championship event was this weekend - www.dailymail.co.uk...
  Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Ralphine:

I remember when a disgruntled Green Bay Packers fan shot Dan Devine's dog in his yard when he was the coach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Some lacrosse trick shots for your enjoyment - youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Caryn:

@KfromHP: that's Finland for ya. We also have the mobile phone throwing competition, the rubber boot throwing competition, swamp soccer, swamp skiing...
Avatar 6:40pm JakeGould:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Caryn - Yep, also rally car racing and tango competitions, right?
  Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Ralphine:

If you had heard the announcers on ESPN covering the hot dog eating contest, you would know that it's a sport.
Avatar 6:43pm JakeGould:

What about Yahtzee? Jack Klugman shilled for them so that’s a sport, right?
  6:44pm P-90:

"Swamp Skiing" sounds kinda......messy.
  Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Ralphine:

  6:45pm Listener Robert:

Not all games are sports, & not all sports are games. Fishing & bicycling, for instance, are (usually) sports that are not games.

Tiddlywinks, because it's physical, I qualifies IMO as a sport. Not chess.

I'm unclear on whether something has to be competitive to be a game. I think so, so that other things you might play, like "house" or "doctor", are games.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Caryn:

@Ken: yep, but those are boringly normal. World air guitar championship? Snowshoe soccer? Mosquito-killing championship? Those are more like it.
  6:47pm Ajax:

Santa Clara: Levi's Stadium
Santa Cruz: Boardwalk
Santa Claus: Racist
  6:48pm Listener Robert:

Super Bowls started getting the Roman numerals when it wasn't clear they would last as an institution. The 1st had no number. It was like "Rocky", "Rocky II", etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Caryn:

@P-90: I believe there are different categories. There's a sporty, messy one and a more jokey, fancy-dress one. But it can get messy, and very physically tiring. Probably the most famous swamp skiing photo shows this: static.iltalehti.fi...
  6:49pm Listener Robert:

You know, they thought there might just be a small number of Super Bowls, & then they'd be superseded by some other annual championship.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Caryn:

@Listener Robert: Stephen Fry once wrote a newspaper article all about sports and games and the difference between the two. I wish I could remember how he defined the difference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Fabian Cancellara has left the Tour de France with a broken back. Ouch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Carmichael:

NASCAR is not a sport, regardless of what my idiot friends say.
  6:52pm P-90:

@Caryn: I've skiied cross-country, know how demanding that is. If this is like that, but through swampland, I'm impressed.
  6:54pm P-90:

@I'd really like to read what Frye said about that...
  6:54pm Patrick:

Jim, the best part of the car that blew up was that The NRA is the sponsor of that car.
  6:55pm P-90:

Wait, aren't Doritos kind of fried, already? By definition, even?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Caryn:

@P-90: swamp skiing actually started as a summer training workout for Finnish crosscountry skiers. When it was just training, they'd ski in swampland that was very easy to sink into (to get their cardio going, having to struggle against the swamp). The championship version is usually on swampland that is harder to sink into, but with muddy patches. Still, a pain in the ass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm cory:

i thought it was weird that another #3 had a massive wreck at daytona.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Men's soccer CONCACAF Gold Cup kicks off tomorrow. USA vs. Honduras 7/7, Haiti 7/10 and Panama 7/14.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Caryn:

@P-90: I'll have to try and dig up what Fry said for next week.
  6:58pm P-90:

@Caryn: that makes perfect sense, that would be outstanding training for real cross-country skiing.
  7:00pm P-90:

Thanks Bronwyn and Jim! And congrats on first-ever mention of "69-ing" babies in broadcast history!
