As I discussed with TSM today on Twitter, the more 590 plugged Tim and Sid today, the less I wanted to listen. 590 tweeting about them every hour this morning was ESPN level hype.

I have no prior experience with them before today, and the little bit I heard was okay, but man, give it a rest. And I just knew they would have them at 4 with Bob on Prime Time.

Since it’s a Damien week and Arthur was on today, I listened to TSN instead of the Fan this afternoon.

This is Sportsnet, remember? Hazel Mae is sexy and easy on the eyes to look at , but even her return didn’t get pounded in our inboxes and Twitter accounts and Facebook pages as much as Sid & Tim’s turn on the FAN airwaves.

The FAN slamming in my face all day today – is making me think of turning toward doing Christmas shopping, take a knap or something else.

Not a hint of trying to be sarcastic or funny here – but didn’t they do the same thing with Andrew Krystal? And look how “wonderful” that turned out. Now I am being sarcastic! LOL!

So because they promoted Krystal and that failed, they shouldn’t promote anybody?

I dunno. They weren’t able to talk about it the last few months, so they’re making up for lost time I guess. It’s pretty much what I expected since they’re kind of higher profile guys for an afternoon slot.

@ Daniel – I am not saying that (re. Krystal). All I mean is we should be cautioned about this before because Don Kollins has made a mistake with Andrew Krystal.

I won’t compare it to the Krystal/Mae stuff because yesterday was the only day they could have promoted them, nobody had any idea they were going to be on.

Secondly, Tim & Sid were pretty big free agents that been talked about in places like here for a while. As for Mae & Krystal, I never heard anybody talk about them as a huge “outside get” anywhere before they returned to the Fan/SN fold. I’d compare Tim & Sid being signed more like Buck Martinez which would mean more wide appeal and actual story to joining the SN team.

Man, did Sid look nervous on PTS lol, Tim looked so happy. Glad that McCown gave them a segment, it almost feels like the Carson days (Johnny not Daly) that he gives a comedian the “Lets talk at the desk” go ahead after they do their set.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
