    Let's hope so. I'm betting he goes the other way. In theory, he's in line to get some money now, no?

    I lost both of my parents in less than two months in the summer of '92. It was a near-devastating loss. The support of friends and family helped a lot, as did, in my own case, therapy. My heart goes out to him and his loved ones.

    What just happened with Brandon Marshall?

    I was distracted and heard he dumped his coffee and took off mid-interview.

    They asked him questions about race in sports between whites and blacks and his history with domestic violence.

    Kirk and Callahan are tweeting like crazy that they won the Spring "Boston" ratings, but I have a feeling that might be misleading.

    It's funny that once they seem to have won a bookings quarter, they revert back to using the 18-54 age bracket. According to them they win every quarter, but this quarter they are even better since they really won.

    Fake edit: man they even had an article as to why they won ready to go: http://www.weei.com/blogs/weei/daluz-5-reasons-why-kc-won-spring-ratings-book

    Actual Edit: You weren't kidding. They can't do enough victory laps on Twitter. You'd think they'd won the lottery, not one out of the last 20 or whatever quarters. For Kirk being such a douche all the time, it's funny how much he's gloating in this since you can tell how much it really bothers him losing most books. It'll be interesting to see the numbers if they beat T&R by T&R losing listeners or they just had a great quarter and more people were listening to sports radio more overall.

    Getting more people to stare at you while you are shitting in your pants still means you are shitting in your pants.

    I really can't listen to these guys at all. They don't talk sports, only sports drama. They were trying to grab headlines with Marshall and succeeded, I guess. I'm sure it was on deadspin.

    That said, I finally got around to the post-Super Bowl Inside the NFL today and Marshall could only talk about how the Falcons blew it, refusing to credit the Pats. Fuck that guy.

    Kirk sure has mellowed since his parents died. Love when success hits the good guys.

    I turned on the morning show today on my drive to work.

    Brady recently compared people who deny a holistic approach to fitness and medicine to climate change deniers, and implied that there is an established industry who profits from the status quo, which is why there is a resistance to the science behind both climate change and holistic fitness.

    Callahan started complaining about this, and Kirk was happy to join in. Callahan said "I don't know about you, but I like oil. I use it." They then called Brady a hypocrite because he probably uses oil too, and therefore he's not allowed to be critical of climate change deniers. They then said that Brady sounds like a "limousine liberal" for acknowledging that climate change is a thing.

    Jesus those two are awful. They can't go a single show without spouting ignorant "conservative" rhetoric and and being totally condescending about it, as if they hold the obviously superior intellectual position and moral high ground on everything. Puke.

    Kirk apparently has been reprimanded for his comments this morning about John Henry and the Red Sox ownership.

    He must have been told to go home in the middle of the broadcast today, because he wasn't there when I tuned in at around 8:00 a.m.

    Man, what a miserable human being he is -- digging his own grave even at the pinnacle of success.

    Hopefully he quits. I heard about a minute of his Sporty bIt which was horrible radio.

    i disagree I actually found it kinda entertaining. It was clearly a reaction to the Red Sox apparently calling entercom.

    Like him or hate him. Agree or disagree with him. The Red Sox should not have any control of what is said about them on a talk show.

    WEEIs morning show is stunt/tabloid radio. I don't know how anyone can listen to it.

    They're trying like hell to setup Minihane as some sort of Stern and manufacturing drama to keep the day to day lively. It's boring and uninteresting but some people must be drinking it up

    Maybe it was just me then. Basically prank calling legitimate reporters around the country (on shit they don't care about) and mocking and shitting on them without them being in on it? I get the point he was making with Entercom, but bringing in people who have nothing to do to it and mocking them I don't think is good radio.

    It's funny after all the shit that goes on in the mornings at WEEI, this recent outburst is what the Red Sox finally called about on their flag ship station?

    The hilarious thing to me about the "Sporty McGee" bit is that just five years ago Minihane challenged Fred Toucher to a dead serious "SPORTS DEBATE!!" Anything he says is all just shtick.

    Minihane is 100% convinced that the people want The Real Housewives of Entercom and I couldn't give two shits. I don' t listen at all anymore, but do they ever talk honest-to-goodness, between-the-lines sports?

    The height of deflategate will always be the morning show's Flowers for Algernon. Upon reflection, it's the only time I've shared KKKallahan's persecution complex, so if the listener wasn't in that demo, then I'm sure it's just been a steady stream of the same old bullshit.

    I will admit I liked his podcast for a while, but I've stopped listening just so I don't boost his download numbers.

    I sometimes turn them on on my 15 minute drive to work to see if maybe, just maaaybe they can go 15 minutes without the show devolving into really boring, pointless, self-centered drivel. Rarely do they make it to the five minute mark.

    the Sporty thing was unlistenable. once I realized he just gonna do the same bit with five different guys I turned it off. what was amusing was seeing all his stooges pretend it was the funniest thing they've ever heard (because if they didn't he would turn them into one of his fake radio "enemies")

    Not sure if this is the thread to put it in, or if it's even threadworthy, but Mike Mutnansky was popped for a DUI last week in Saratoga. I know he's filled in on K&C a few times since then. Even yesterday, I believe.

    It's only interesting because of how much they make light of Mutt's drinking on the show. They play clips of him sounding fairly inebriated on the air. And he seems to happily go along with it. Not sure how this affects an on-air radio personality. Will be interesting to see how Kirk and/or Gerry respond to it now that it's public.

    Kirk's podcast is extremely hit or miss. His new episode with Dale Arnold is a good one. Dale is very honest about his 2011 firing and his feelings towards everyone involved. WEEI really fucked that guy over. Never been a big fan of Dale's, but no one deserves to be screwed with by his employer like he was.
