I hope to get caught up on the wrestling from Jim the Poet - I heard there was big doings in the wrestling this weekend.

ALL Catholic football players wanted to play for Notre Dame.
  6:09pm chalmers:

Gold Cup has been exciting, but the horrible call against Costa Rica last night marred it for me.
  6:09pm Hawkeye:

George Plimpton was a sportsy pioneer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How about that soccer match last night? Ref waited 123 minutes to pull the rug out from under Costa Rica.
  6:10pm Listener Robert:

One thing I didn't mention about Arena football was the decision to play 8 a side. That's awfully crowded for that amount of space (about that of a hockey rink). Standard 6 man football is played on a slightly larger field than that. As a result, Arena football had to adopt a bunch of rules constraining where players could line up & even what they could do once the ball was snapped.

I asked Jim Foster about that, and he said it was one of the compromises they made to make the game more acceptable to fans of 11-a-side. He was for playing 6- or 7/side & allowing free play, but the money people wanted to have more players on the lines even if that meant they had to restrict play.

derek jeter has a goofy looking castle in greenwood lake. maybe you can do a remote approaching his home by canoe. or life raft.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Carmichael:

Maybe you could take a peek at Jeter walking his parapet.
  6:13pm Listener Robert:

They compromised the substitution rules in AFL too to allow for QB & kicker specialists. The general idea was that everyone would play both ways, but they ditched that to allow the specialists.

I saw a good documentary on ESPN a few weeks ago about the USFL. Donald Trump owned a team back then. He was a young douchebag in the doc.

It was the classiest, most luxurious team in all of sports.

Avatar 6:16pm Danne D:

Donald Trump killed the USFL :( that documentary was quite accurate.
  6:16pm chalmers:

Trump's team was called the Generals--the closest he's gotten to military service. He didn't name them though.
  6:17pm jan:

Saw Trainwreck- Enjoyed it, but was surprised to see Amy having sexual congress while wearing a white body suit or a bra and panties. Seems like they could have been discrete by depicting sex under the sheets.
  6:18pm XFL:

The XFL was the biggest letdown. It was boringly legit except for the hot tubs in the end zones. They should have had coaches breaking chairs over refs heads. Could have been great.
Avatar 6:18pm dale:

i never saw top gun - am i missing anything? never saw dirty dancing or ghost either. my life is so empty.
  6:19pm chalmers:

Anthony Edwards was also a key revenge-seeking nerd.

Yeah, but the XFL had He Hate Me.

Revenge of the Nerds
  6:19pm Listener Robert:

If I were rich, I'd have something I'd call Cage Match Football, which would be like the uncompromised Arena idea, plus some of my own. There'd be no system of downs, but a possession clock instead. The cage would be around the whole thing, including ceiling, with all surfaces in play. Substitution would be limited by a kind of cattle pen arrangement with a sliding gate. The goals would extend to the floor, and could be defended by a goalie if the team so chose. They'd start 7-a-side but that could be reduced by penalties as in hockey & lacrosse, & there'd be substitution on the fly as in those sports, starting from the cattle pens at the ends of the cage. Periods would start with a neutral kickoff, with the ball in the middle & teams rushing out of their gates to kick it 1st. Kicking a loose ball would be allowed; still no punting, though.

Avatar 6:22pm Danne D:

Best Call Ever.
Avatar 6:22pm Danne D:

Even though I hate the Bulls.
  6:22pm chalmers:

But not THE Josia Rullevillages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Studio B Ben:

Whoa. This is amazing.
Avatar 6:22pm Danne D:

(Though I kinda wouldn't mind the Bulls winning now because it would piss off Michael Jordan)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Kat in Chicago:

OMG this is hilarious!
Avatar 6:23pm Marcel M:

hahaha... awesome! Glad she is into it.
Avatar 6:23pm dale:

HA! love this unsolicited spam caller! run with it!
  6:23pm Average Joe:

Has Dodgeball been discussed?
  Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Ralphine:

Y'all are probably paying $100 a minute for this call.
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

@Dale you should call about that :)

I like how she says Michael Jeffrey Jordan - like he's an assassin or something.
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

She needs to call every week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm chris:

Michael Jeffrey Jordan!
  6:24pm Ghost of Prefontaine:

For me, it ended with Pete Maravich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm chris:

agreed, Danne D!
Avatar 6:24pm Danne D:

LOL WFMU fundraiser goal doubled next year to pay for this call. - I think you're right Ralphine.

@Dale Michael Jordan is a he.

I already spoke of Revenge of the Nerds, specifically Booger, earlier this morning.

Hi Danne D!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Studio B Ben:

Sorry you got cut off Danne D, but I'm not sorry we got this call.

hey - this person KNOWS the show - it's a setup!

Car racing is not sports.
Avatar 6:30pm Danne D:

Somebody has to name check the comedian that dumped all the fake money on Sepp Blatter today - that was pure awesome:

New Hampshire - Kyle Busch won. This angers most NASCAR fans. Which I secretly kind of enjoy.
Avatar 6:31pm Marcel M:

The "its not a sport" thing reminds me of people who say some things are not music or not art
  6:31pm Studd:

Poker (ugh, gross) is NOT a sport.

The music those kids listen to today, that ain't music.

Well yeah, Jim. After all, the goal is to score.
Avatar 6:33pm Danne D:

Blatter wants to stay in office until February 26 because document shredders can only take a limited number of pages at a time.
  Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Ralphine:

Did Janet Jones get nekkid in American Anthem?
  6:33pm chalmers:

"The Flamingo Kid" is a more watchable Janet Jones movie than "American Anthem."
  6:33pm Jack Reacher:

Cruise runs in all of his movies.
Avatar 6:34pm Danne D:

@Ralphine per wikipedia: " In 1987, she appeared on the cover and in a semi-nude pictorial in the March issue of Playboy."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Dez Bryant signed a contract with the Cowboys last week. Right before the deadline.
  6:35pm chalmers:

Good move. Frevert could not have been any better than the second-best guest tonight.
Avatar 6:36pm dale:

holy crap - janet jones is still a good looking lady - to my 55 year old eyes, anyway - which need cheater glasses.
Avatar 6:36pm Marcel M:

He is pretty hot... I'd definitely sext him.
  Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Ralphine:

I thought I saw Jones on a movie on Skinamax.
Avatar 6:37pm Danne D:

I gotta hit the road but I'll be listening in the car :) Great show as always guys - thanks for taking my call.

Overall Gymkata is still the better gymnastics movie.
  6:37pm Cub:

Janet Reno?
  6:38pm chalmers:

How did a Pommel Horse get into a the middle of an alley fight in Gymkata?
Avatar 6:39pm Marcel M:

I think sometimes they cut scenes from movies and they get left in the ads.... its possible at least!
Avatar 6:39pm Marcel M:

Yeah if Bronwyn gets cable I donno if I could keep listening to the show.
  Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Ralphine:

I saw Janet Reno give a speech and was praying that there would be a Q&A afterwards so I could ask her what it was like to wrassle a gator. But then I remembered that was her mother.
  6:40pm Cub:

Ralphine - Ha ha!
  6:41pm Danne D:


it was Leah Still - daughter of Devon Still of the Bengals
  6:43pm Danne D:

I met Kevin Huber's brother before the bengals-Washingtom game a few years ago.

pat McAfee is supposed to be a great interview - very twitter savvy. probably would reply to your inquiries
  6:46pm Clay:

Kristaps Porzingas is my favorite Knick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Carmichael:

McAfee is crazy. Stone crazy. And likely a murderer.
  Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Ralphine:

A short clip for the purpose of educating the public about this guy's voice should be fair use.
  6:48pm Clay:

John Snow looks strange without his facial hair. hey. he's alive. His eyeballs expanded.
Avatar 6:51pm dale:

shit - this caffeinated dude beat me to the call!
  6:52pm Danne D:

I just made a public twitter appeal to Pat McAfee (@patmcafeeshow)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Tour de France is riding this week. Some spectator threw pee water at a rider. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Carmichael:

Wrong stone crazy McAfee. He might actually NOT be a murderer.

You guys think Tom Brady will weasel out of his Inflate-a-gate suspension?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm SeanG:

as if the tour de france isn't hard enough let alone riding through pee!

  6:59pm Kel:

Good Sportys Talk, Becky HT, and the gameshow hat trick.
