Wales and the Faroe Islands got pretty good World Cup preliminary draws.

Hello, most trusted team.

Nice to listen and comment live after a break of a few weeks. Our World Cup preliminary group is okay, but we're still gonna get our asses kicked.
Avatar 6:05pm Danne D:

@Caryn - the draw for the US was ridiculously weak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Happily, I guess, the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer is behind us. MLS all-star game is Wednesday. 2018 WC qualifying begins this November!
Avatar 6:07pm Danne D:

In the Behrleball league, though I am the one that has A-Rod :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Caryn:

And to catch up on recent weeks: the new Partick Thistle FC mascot is dreadful. It's like a demonically-possessed Lisa Simpson from a "Treehouse of Horror" episode. Sheesh. www.telegraph.co.uk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Carmichael:

Did they ever open the Steroids Hall of Fame?
  6:08pm chalmers:

As a Yankee fan, I should not like Pedro, but I've been a fan since I heard him correct a reporter on the "less/fewer" distinction.

Not as scary as the Pelicans mascot:

Though Pierre is not even the scariest Pelicans mascot...

I found out today that Donald Trump owns the Wollman Rink in Central Park. Yuck.
Avatar 6:13pm Danne D:

Amazingly - Hamilton AND Rosberg both finished outside of the top 5 in this weekend's formula 1 race.
  Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Ralphine:

Lots of distortion on the 128K internet stream.

Sportsy Talk Internet Comment Of The Week: Always Better Than Reddit (p.s. check your levels, lots of distortion)
  6:16pm chalmers:

@Ralphine, that was a mid-sized media story way back when. The city spent years trying to build it and kept getting hung up by funds and red tape.

Trump came in and paid to finish it, generating good pub for himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Kat in Chicago:

the mics are super crackly sounding :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm chris:

Mics are so hot, its like two Andy Breckmans are on air. :-D
Avatar 6:17pm Jeff:

Everything sounds like crackly ass after the dump button has been used.

It'll get better eventually, after the delay buffer has rebuilt.
Avatar 6:17pm Danne D:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Caryn:

@Danne: sheesh with the Pelicans mascots... Still, I miss the nice old Partick mascot, a smiley bee. This new one, ugh. But it does create plenty of meme humour and jokes about the scary sun mascot being created because the Scots have never seen the sun and the mascot is simply what they think it looks like based on ancient writings. Heh.
Avatar 6:18pm Marcel M:

Hello talkers of the sports. Lots of distortion indeed, but whats WFMU without it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

NFL preseason football kicks off in a couple weeks. The Hall of Fame game is August 9....less than two weeks to go.
Avatar 6:18pm Marcel M:

It seems better now. I think its gone. Oops no its back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm chris:

sounds good now
  6:18pm catass:

It's def your mics preaking
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Studio B Ben:

  6:19pm catass:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Caryn:

Not better, but it doesn't take away from the brilliance otherwise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Ike:

Mics have been hot for a lot of DJs on FMU lately, so it's probably an ongoing technical blotch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Partick Thistle FC mascot looks to me like a giant grain of thistle pollen. www.gettyimages.ae... Is that the effect they were looking for?
  6:23pm Listener Robert:

I don't know whether it's an honor or a dishonor that the response I got out of Bronwyn required her to premeditatedly dump herself.

The reason there'd be no punting in Cage Match Football is that I want to simplify the rules by treating all kicks the same, but punting would be much too easy a way to produce the results of other kicks. I'd even consider banning kicks out of a player's hold, same reason.
Avatar 6:25pm Danne D:

Here is the awesome draw Wales got for World Cup Qualifying:
Wales, Austria, Serbia, Ireland, Moldova, Georgia.

Faroe Islands have a sporting chance with their group:
Portugal, Switzerland, Hungary, Faroe Islands, Latvia, Andorra

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Caryn:

@KenfromHP: I'd like to think so, but who knows.
  6:28pm ERA:

Sportsy Talk with or without distortion is still the best show out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Carmichael:

Wow, Ireland may actually have a chance. Bit probably not.
Avatar 6:29pm Jeff:

So... the delay finished rebuilding a few minutes ago, and after that... y'all sounded fine again.

While delay is rebuilding, your show will sound like ass, with crackly distortion when you talk. That's just the magic of the station's delay box.

I hate it. I hope we can get a better one some day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm chris:

are you guys talking about this: www.drinkmoxie.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm chris:

distinctively different
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Caryn:

Finland's up against Turkey, Ukraine, Iceland and Croatia. We could beat every one of those teams, but will probably manage to lose consistently.
  6:31pm Listener Robert:

I've never had Moxie, but I've had Vernor's, of which some people say the same as is said of Moxie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I bought a bottle of yerba mate on Saturday. It was like iced tea. The caffeine kept me up pretty late. I haven't had Moxie before.
  Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Ralphine:

Does Moxie taste like kombucha?

the olympics are a money losing venture for all but the extremely wealthy

I want no part of an Olympics that doesn't include wrestling.
  6:43pm Listener Robert:

Kazakhstan: 6 mos. of snow, 6 mos. of dust. Maybe the SAME 6 mos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Caryn:

Some of the developments in the selection of Olympic sports makes me dizzy. Classics are cut, and then they bring in 15 different varieties of cycling and sailing or something. Do I really care who wins in Yingling, Keirin or Omnium? I barely care who wins in the Madison.

I tell a lie, I don't care about who wins in the Madison at all.

We should write everything in anapestic tetrameter.

2018 is Korea winter.
2020 is Tokyo summer.

@Jeff - now i want to hear the old chili pepper's cover of Suess's Yertle the Turtle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Caryn:

Can we discuss how this year's Tour de France turned into a frigging punk concert, what with all the urine throwing and spitting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Caryn:

Summer Olympics were in Soul in 1988, I think?
Avatar 6:48pm Danne D:

Todd is in for Becky this week
Avatar 6:50pm Marcel M:

Becky is tooooo cute. In the Glen Jones voice :-)
Avatar 6:51pm Danne D:

We have a trade!!!!
Mets acquire Tyler Clippard from the A's:
Avatar 6:51pm Danne D:

(and yes I have promptly already dropped Clippard in both leagues I'm in)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm common:

gashouse gorrillas! nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

www.wfmu.org... TOPT is listed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Caryn:

Maybe Bronwyn and Jim should just check out the WFMU.org main page to see all these programme changes... Just saying.
Avatar 6:55pm Danne D:

1980 Lake Placid Olympic Village is now a prison. True fact.
Avatar 6:55pm dale:

i remember a big deal about the l.a. olympics was the anatomically correct naked statuary
Avatar 6:56pm Marcel M:

Really Danne D? My parents moved up there, never noticed that.
Avatar 6:57pm dale:

i thought lake placid was like a skiiers and skaters training ground sort of thing.
Avatar 6:58pm Danne D:

Jim the Poet's secret family!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Caryn:

All I think about when I think of the LA Olympics is how Cuba Gooding Jr. was a dancer during Lionel Ritchie's performance, and slipped and fell because of the water effects.
Avatar 6:58pm Danne D:

I saw that Lake Placid fact in a 30 for 30 on Slava Fetisov and the Russian side of the Miracle on Ice
Avatar 6:58pm Marcel M:

Thats what I thought too Dale, I've driven by it a bunch
Avatar 6:59pm Danne D:

Yay :) Bye Sportsyfolks :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Caryn:

Bye all! And I leave you with a photo of my favourite London Marathon runner this year: uk.eurosport.yahoo.com...
