Today, Sportsy Friends, we are all just a hitchhiking robot trying to find our way through life. Only to be harassed by Eagles fans.

We need to get the Jim/Rousey romance going.

  Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Ralphine:

You'll be lucky if Trump doesn't sue you for hundreds of millions of dollars.
Avatar 6:14pm Danne D:

I liked my tweet saying Rousey's next fight will be broadcast on Vine even though it only got like 4 likes.
  Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Ralphine:

That last Rousey fight was RIGGED. Almost none of Rousey's punches landed, and the ones that did were love taps.
Avatar 6:16pm Danne D:

@Ralphine - look let's face it I'd pretend to go down before Ronda actually hit me - that fighter was smart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Cecile - The Key & Peele East/West College Bowl introduction skits are hilarious.

Is Partying A Sport? Proud to report Illinois was ranked #1 party school in the latest Princeton Review rankings. GO ILLINI!
  Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Ralphine:

So, Danne D, you agree that the last punch didn't land?
Avatar 6:17pm Cecile:

I know. My favorite is still x-wing@aliciouness
Avatar 6:17pm Danne D:

Moving the Astros was total bullshit.
15 teams in each league.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Carmichael:

@KfHP: Agreed, and every player is from Lower East Central Florida Southern, Extension College West Campus.
Avatar 6:19pm Cecile:

I like the ones where actual players show up in the lineup.
Avatar 6:19pm Danne D:

Bud Selig logic - Houston must switch leagues after 50 years of being in the National League.

But Milwaukee is a "National League" town because they had the Braves there for 13 years and the Brewers in the National League for 15 years. It's stupid and wrong.
Avatar 6:20pm Danne D:

Michael Kay is the worst.
Avatar 6:20pm Cecile:

anyway, gotta go. Later!
  Swag For Life Member 6:21pm Ralphine:

Flores could hit a thousand home runs and he'll still be a crybaby to me.
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

From NPR article when Astros switch was announced:
"The move of the Astros is part of a deal involving a group lead by businessman Jim Crane's to purchase the team. The group had agreed to buy the team for $680 million, but was given a $70 million price cut in exchange for agreeing to switch leagues because of the move's potential negative effect on the Astros TV ratings."

Total Crap.

Dammit :(
Illinois has to be the best at something!?!

Anyway another article on the Newfoundland Moose:

Yay :) Sportsytalk Success!
Avatar 6:31pm drewo:

The Mets should give Flores a week off on paid leave for 'emotional duress', so he can somehow come to grips with the fact that he is a highly paid athlete who will retire relatively young with a nice pension for life.
Avatar 6:32pm Danne D:

There's no crying in baseball.
There's no punting in Arena League.

Philadelphia Soul is a great name
Avatar 6:33pm Danne D:

I dunno - everybody walks on the Soul?
Avatar 6:34pm Danne D:

Bon Jovi stopped owning the Soul 7 years ago?!? I bet nobody else knows that :)

NW Missouri St are the Bearcats for those keeping score at home.

This interview segment certainly took an interesting turn :)

And there's no 4th down in the CFL.

Question: What’s Tommy having for dinner?

Tommy's AFL bio:

Avatar 6:41pm northguineahills:

@Danne D: Wow, someone else knows lower division college mascots! (I know most of them I have no idea why I know, I just do (I went to a SEC school).
Avatar 6:42pm Danne D:

@NGH - I know google ;)
Avatar 6:43pm Danne D:

Has Tommy been to any NFL or CFL tryout camps?
  6:44pm marc:

As long as the holder is not Lucy from "Peanuts" it will be good
  Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Ralphine:

I know that Southern Illinois's mascot is the Saluki, but that's just because the Fighting Gamecocks played them in baseball a long time ago.
Avatar 6:44pm Danne D:

Here's a better bio of Tommy Frevert:
  6:45pm Listener Robert:

That's the trouble w the ridiculously many playoffs in sports now: You can beat a team twice & still have to play off vs. them. Why play the season?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Carmichael:

I really enjoy keeping track of small colleges and their mascots. Strange, but I've been doing unconsciously doing it for years.
Avatar 6:45pm Danne D:

Oooh - his nickname is Dr. PAT :)
Avatar 6:45pm northguineahills:

I have a weird fascination w/ lower division colleges, and follow them for no apparent reason.

U of North Dakota still deciding on new nickname - www.inforum.com...
  6:47pm Listener Robert:

I don't grieve the demise of Hitchbot. It traveled plenty, made the point, so it was time for its final act. What's more appropriate than getting slashed to pieces in Phila., just like a real hitchhiker? It was performance art--both its hitchhiking & its destruction.
Avatar 6:47pm Danne D:

Seriously - play that audio of the Christie booing :)
  6:48pm Listener Robert:

But, Ralphine, why is there $ in bogus playoffs? Are the fans that stupid?
  Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ralphine:

I think you know the answer to that last question.
  6:50pm Listener Robert:

Then the NHL fans are the dumbest, because AFAICT they started the trend of playing a whole season to knock out just 1/3 of the teams before the playoffs.
  6:50pm SeanG:

did tommy get his tonsils out?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think the Chinese are planning a high-speed rail line to the ski area to get people back & forth quickly.
  6:52pm Listener Robert:

And the bizarre thing was, at that time, the players played the Stanley Cup playoffs for fucking FREE! They just got their salary, whether they were in the playoffs or not. So THEY weren't cashing in on what the teams were raking.
  6:53pm marc:

Did Dannie D call 20 minutes ago?
Avatar 6:54pm Danne D:

14/30 of the NHL teams miss the playoffs.

Though yeah it used to be 5/21 (actually 79% making it not 67%)
Avatar 6:54pm Danne D:

Link again :)
  6:54pm Listener Robert:

At the time I was referring to, it was 4 teams out of 6 making the playoffs.

Mick Foley would probably interview on your show.
