Las Vegas .... Home of the Raiders!
Avatar 6:08pm dale:

tractor pull is probably the oddest spectator sport i've been to. or snowmobile grass drag races. but to a lot of america that isn't weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

The Car, home of Carmichael
Avatar 6:08pm glenn:

and the golden knights.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm DMcK:

Exhibition Sumo wrestling at Madison Square Garden. It was a lot of fun!
Avatar 6:10pm glenn:

the reason for expansion? because the other 30 teams get to share a 500 million dollar expansion fee.
Avatar 6:12pm glenn:

they do have to put a team on the ice obviously, but mostly they're going to pick guys they can trade for draft picks and cap space.
Avatar 6:13pm dale:

waiting for the cock fight call.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Kat in Chicago:

I have not been to many sporting events but I'd say the couple of XFL games I went to were the weirdest, and coldest (Soldier Field in February, brrrr)
Avatar 6:15pm glenn:

i think vegas also had a team during the ill advised expansion of the canadian football league into america.
Avatar 6:16pm dale:

WEEDS - port. up east of buffalo
Avatar 6:16pm dale:

pig race at the county fair was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Carmichael:

The Sacramento Gold Miners played in the Canadian Football League.
Avatar 6:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

my best AND weirdest sporting event ever was outside chicago, a demolition derby with roller derby rules. so much smash, so much boom. i remember it being called the "tournament of destruction," but maybe they changed the name. dirtoval66.com
Avatar 6:19pm dale:

i hope someone calls in who went a round with a boxing kangaroo.
Avatar 6:22pm glenn:

wrong way feldpig?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Carmichael:

How about the basketball game that had trampolines in the court?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Kat in Chicago:

@Kurt that looks like a good time...?
  6:24pm Listener Robert:

True, Glenn, LV did have a CFL club. I went to a game of the Balto. CFL Colts (Stallions) vs. the Toronto Argos in 1995. It was preceded by a US vs. Canada Rugby LEAGUE (13s) match, and a 10-a-side club RL match.
Avatar 6:25pm glenn:

apparently the grand canyon was created by noah's flood, according to some whackadoodle young earth christian moron.
Avatar 6:25pm drewo:

Only 113 today here in Tucson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm common:

Man, I had heat stroke playing drums in flagstaff. Horrid. Great town, though.
Avatar 6:27pm dale:

if the entire earth was covered in a flood, where did the water drain off to so that the land emerged?
Avatar 6:28pm glenn:

fairs seem to have a large number of weird sporting events.
Avatar 6:29pm dale:

don't people play bingo by putting a cow in a numbered grid and wherever he poops is the winning square?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Carmichael:

A brisk 105 in Sacramento presently, drewo.
Avatar 6:29pm glenn:

who the fuck knows, dale? these guys aren't known for applying logic to solving their questions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Carmichael:

We're still known for our frog jumping contest out here.
  6:33pm Listener Robert:

The professional firework competitions are typically held over a period of days or weeks, with one entry per night. Each entry consists of a company putting on an entire display. The annual Benson & Hedges competition in Montreal is a big one, for example. The one at Liberty State Park was held over weeks, hosted by either Garden State Fireworks or NJ Pyrotechnics (I forgot which), which put on an exhibition on the awards night, which apparently is traditional when the host doesn't enter its own.

In amateur pyro, the competition is usually individual pieces or pairs of pieces, although there are also some display competitions for things like class C, which consist of artful putting together of commercial consumer fireworks. One of the great things about amateur competitions in the USA is getting to see some often really great rockets, which you don't get to see in professional displays in North America outside of competitions. The aerial displays you're used to seeing are shells, shot by mortars into the sky.

Aren't the beasts used to descend the Grand Canyon mules, as opposed to asses/donkeys?
  6:37pm serine:

play some goddamn music plz
Avatar 6:37pm glenn:

ummm. aren't donkeys sterile? or is that mules?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm chris:

mules are horse/donkey hybrids
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How about demolition drag racing? That would rule!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Julie:

mules are sterile. donkeys make more donkeys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Julie:

my dad has miniature donkeys. The female finally kicked the male to death because he kept knocking her up.
Avatar 6:40pm glenn:

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

@Julie - That'll learn ya!
  6:40pm Listener Robert:

I got in trouble here for commenting once on the look of your bookkeeper, who I think is cute. Maybe if I'd used the word "pixie", that would've been acceptable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Carmichael:

Kite fighting? I saw it once in a park, where they cut each other's strings with attached razors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Folsom:

did I miss the bear and MMA sports death news?
  Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Ralphine:

Who are the Yankees going to get to replace Aaron Judge when he quits to join the Harlem Globetrotters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm melinda:

Whitey Bulger and his people murdered the owner of a Jai alai club, or something like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Carmichael:

He talked into a mic, to either Mike or Mike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm melinda:

I haven't seen the Depp movie but there's a good documentary.
Avatar 6:55pm glenn:

why are we surprised? rodman's insane. kim's insane. seems like a good match to me.
  11:50pm Bullpen Betty:

Betty Say: 1. I'm a big fan of the opening song from tonight, I'll admit it even. 2. Am I allowed to go to the Mariners game in August too? 3. Tonight's game was THE WORST 4. I couldn't hear anything when I called in from the Stadium tonight but I thought it would be a cool idea. I like to live on the edge of reason though, like Bridget Jones. It actually sounded better than I thought it did! 5. Wait, did I do something naughty, Bronwyn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59am (Murakami Whywolf))):

According to his co-author, Trump did in fact dictate large sections of "The Art of the Deal", though a great deal of revision for grammar and coherence was needed. According to the same man, working with Trump and hearing his views on life and of what he was proud convinced him that Trump is a literal, no-foolin'-for-realsies, sociopath.
