Brooklyn bars are now serving cocktails made of artisan shoe polish, simple syrup, and tobacco juice. They call it "The Dip Spit Bottle"

Vegimite and Marmite is fermented yeast spread.
Avatar 6:11pm JakeGould:

Vegimite and Marmite is like a savory Nutella.
Avatar 6:11pm Nikki in London:

vegemite is made out of yeast!

I like Manhattan Special Coffee Soda!

  6:12pm chalmers:

Faygo Redpop and Mexican Jarritos belong in the soda roundup.

what vegemite is:
A pale contender to the throne.
Marmite is King!
Avatar 6:13pm Nikki in London:

super salty. It's great on toast. Especially with a hangover.

Not so great to get drunk on..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Rhody Chris:

@ Ben, that sounds worse than actually drinking out of a dip spit bottle. I should know because my roommate was spitting into a soda can, which I thought was mine and I took a sip.
Avatar 6:13pm Nikki in London:

ecchhh marmite ew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Studio B Ben:

Dry Rainier Cherry Soda.

They have Club Mate??? That stuff is sooo good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Studio B Ben:

Coco Loco (coconut soda) is awesome.
Avatar 6:15pm glenn:

ban marmite. eat tim-tams instead.
Avatar 6:15pm JakeGould:

What about “Marmite Soda?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Studio B Ben:

Sorry, *Coco Rico, not loco
Avatar 6:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

what do i say?
Avatar 6:19pm JakeGould:

I recently found out that Fanta was created when the German licensor for Coca Cola in the 1940s could not import ingredients because of the whole Nazi trade embargo so Fanta (orange flavor) was formulated based on the ingredients readily available to Nazis.

It’s all explained in this 75th anniversary commercial that glosses a bit over Nazis. www.youtube.com...

RIP Buddy Baker :(
  6:21pm Listener Robert:

A couple yrs. back Reason TV did a feature on a biz in L.A. (IIRC) that was a distributor & retailer of uncommon (as well as common) sodas. Vast panoply of flavors. I should dig that up & get the info to Our Hosts.
Avatar 6:22pm JakeGould:

Hey! Cherry Lime Rickey’s! One of my first jobs in the 1980s was to make Cherry Lime Rickey’s for old folks near the beach!
Avatar 6:22pm Danne D:

I'm sure Bronwyn is familiar with Red Pop that is sold out in midwestern states like Illinois.
Avatar 6:23pm Danne D:

Birch Beer is regional to the north east right? :)
  6:23pm Ike:

Drink the gin and veg sodas ON AIR and get buzzed while doing the show, it'll be funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Kat in Chicago:

*waves hello*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Kat in Chicago:

How do you make a Cherry Lime Rickey? Sounds delicious.
Avatar 6:25pm JakeGould:

FWIW, Foxon Park makes TONS of great sodas. Based on Connecticut. www.foxonpark.com...
  6:26pm Listener Robert:

I used to visit Pittsburgh regularly (family), and suddenly about 1970 they started advertising "red pop" on TV. I don't know if that's when the name came into that entire region.
Avatar 6:26pm northguineahills:

When I think of Polar, I think of the Venezuelan beer, Polar/
Avatar 6:26pm JakeGould:

@KatInChicago: When I made them at a soda fountain in the 1980s, the basic formula was like a 1/2 seltzer, 1/2 lemon/lime soda like 7-Up/Sprite and then a squeeze of cherry syrup. Sometimes a maraschino cherry dropped into it.
  6:27pm Listener Robert:

Faygo sodas get a lot of publicity these days courtesy of Juggalos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Kat in Chicago:

Thanks, Jake!
Avatar 6:28pm glenn:

the jays are going to the world series, doubters.
Avatar 6:29pm dale:

egg cream should only be made with u-bet chocolate syrup. eisenberg's on park ave made good one's
Avatar 6:30pm JakeGould:

@KatInChicago: You’re welcome! Also when I mention using 7-Up/Sprite, remember this… Anyone telling you these fountain sodas didn’t use brand name flavors is lying. In the 1970s/1980s I know that’s how the stuff was mixed because those were the flavors that were available.

Glavine, 9/30/07 vs. Marlins: 1/3 Inning, 7 earned runs. Mets lose 8-1.

i recall getting the stink eye when i moved to nyc and asked for pop instead of soda.
Avatar 6:31pm northguineahills:

Does Tahiti Treat still exist?
  6:31pm Listener Robert:

If you can't get Squirt, Ting is about equivalent.
Avatar 6:31pm dale:

vernors is my favorite ginger ale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Studio B Ben:

Blue Vanilla Cream Soda
  6:31pm chalmers:

I'd say RedPop was closest to an artificial strawberry flavor. Made by the fine people at Faygo.
Avatar 6:32pm JakeGould:

@dale: Ha, ha, hayseed!
  6:32pm Listener Robert:

N. Guinea, I just bought 2 L Tahitian Treat a week ago when it was marked down at Rite Aid. I hadn't drunk that in decades. Used to be in a lot of cup-dispensing vending machines.
  6:33pm Listener Robert:

"Red pop" is not a trademark of Faygo's, though. It's been used by others generically.
  6:35pm Listener Robert:

One of the few diet sodas I liked was Fresca, which is grapefruit flavored. You need a kind of citrus to cover up the taste of partially degraded aspartame.

jake - guilty as charged

@dale: Only kidding. Respect non NYC/LA places.
Avatar 6:37pm Danne D:

Yankees ripped this off of Cubs fans btw.

And as much as I hate the Cubs and their fans I have to give them credit here.

Jim forgot the street fight that ensues across the street after a home run.

Q: Is Dota 2 Sportsy?
Avatar 6:43pm northguineahills:

@Listener Robert: Thanks, I've haven't seen it in about 15 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Kat in Chicago:

Listener Kat doesn't pay much attention to the Cubs except to check the home game schedule to know when to avoid Wrigleyville. Missed the evacuation story. Don't know if they are still peeing in cups! Also, since you mentioned it, my show is on wluw.org 10-midnight Central. Not consistently archived at this time although I record most of them.
  6:43pm Listener Robert:

Heh...I was on the safety committee at NMC, Inc. Medical Prods. Div. in Rockleigh 25 yrs. ago. Like Bronwyn's role.
Avatar 6:43pm dale:

worst part of what she's talking about is if you get appointed a fire warden and have to go around and tell everyone to leave. and you can't leave until they do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Kat in Chicago:

OMG "Vaginal Intercom"
Avatar 6:45pm Danne D:

I like that Listener Kat is talking 3rd-person like Rickey Henderson :)
  6:46pm Listener Robert:

Thanks for the self-plug, Kat -- as if I didn't already have too much stuff to listen to! But seriously, good to know you're helping spread the art.
Avatar 6:47pm JakeGould:

“Vaginal Intercom” is the opposite of a “Detachable Penis.”
Avatar 6:49pm dk50b:

If you need a Polar fix, Fairway sells it. Best selection of local sodas I've found is Cost Plus World Market in Livingston.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Kat in Chicago:

@Robert I'm constantly overwhelmed with Cool Stuff To Listen To as well. Good problem to have, I guess.
  Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Ralphine:

Didn't Alex Karras make some wisecrack about Otis Sistrunk on MNF?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Rhody Chris:

I got to meet Gruden in Iraq a few years ago. That little guy is a big ball of energy.
  6:50pm chalmers:

In the classic MNF years, Gifford the ex-pro did play-by-play, while Cosell and Meredith fired barbs at each other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Rhody Chris:

I never understood how Dennis Miller became a sports commentator.
Avatar 6:50pm dale:

you can say 'ass' - pretty sure. just don't add the 'hole' part.
Avatar 6:51pm JakeGould:

  6:51pm chalmers:

Karras said Sistrunk graduated from the "University of Mars." He replaced Meredith who had gone to NBC for a few years in combined acting/sportscasting contract.
Avatar 6:51pm JakeGould:

  6:52pm Listener Robert:

Which makes you wonder how any play-by-play got done the yr. before when it was ONLY Cosell & Meredith. I used to watch, don't ask.
  6:53pm chalmers:

The first year, Keith Jackson did the PBP. Obviously a pro's pro, but he did not fit in to the Roone Arledge notion of combining sports with entertainment.
  6:53pm Listener Robert:

The Infinite Distortion host seems to think spelling it is OK, which people didn't believe 30+ yrs. ago. No way to tell what the "rules" really are w FCC.
  Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Ralphine:

I thought Keith Jackson did play-by-play before Gifford.
  Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Ralphine:

Oops. Sorry, chalmers.
Avatar 6:55pm dale:

but chuck todd has thinning hair - the goatee is his hair penis.
Avatar 6:56pm dale:

'pink and small and sad' - how many times i've heard that...
  6:57pm Listener Robert:

Now that chalmers & Ralphine mention it, yes, Keith Jackson did the play by play, wasn't in the same booth during the show, and often sounded like a spotter in the background. They really de-emphasized him.
Avatar 6:57pm Danne D:

The next Sportsytalk tweet will be the 1000th Sportsytalk tweet :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Studio B Ben:

Yay! He made the twitter feed!
  6:58pm chalmers:

I think Arledge knew he wanted Gifford, but used Jackson as a placeholder because he had one year remaining on his CBS contract.
  6:58pm Listener Robert:

Then Keith Jackson kept announcing sports for yrs. & slowly went downhill. Amazingly, near Jackson's retirement, he became, as my friend Charlie said, less senile.
  7:00pm chalmers:

Jackson semi-retired a few times. I think he actually did get better at the end because he wasn't the #1 guy anymore and did fewer games, exclusively near his west coast home.
Avatar 7:01pm Danne D:

Thanks Sportsytalkers SportsyCallers SportsyListeners and SportsyCommenters :) Until next time :)
