Good that Dan Shulman is sheduled to be on PrimeTime. Had been on a lot with 1050. Is it a sign that maybe TSN1050 and the Fan will start sharing guests? Is the brick wall softening a bit?

I think the Shulman appearance is a one-off because of the 20th anniversary of 590/1430………………I would be surprised if he makes any future appearances on 590 but I guess anything is possible

Funny that Jonah Keri is also an ESPN (Grantland) guy and was on today.

It was painful (and funny) listening to Cox suck up to Anselmi. Whatever credibility Cox had prior to his interview, has gone.

Anselmi has been a disaster as the TFC boss and if Leaf fans dont think things can get any worse, think again.

Some great Fan 590 history talk today. Would love to see a thread about it.

Bob had a great conversation with Nelson Millman. Chatted a bit about the Team 1050, and how he was actually quite worried about it when it launched.

That was a awesome PTS tonight celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Sportsnet 590 The Fan…. did anyone see the story Jeff Marek posted on twitter… he was saying how he got fired from The Fan back in the day by PD Nelson Millman… a post it note was left on the fridge in the lunch room saying “Bob Mackowycz and Jeff Marek are no longer employed here effective immeadietly”…. check it out
would have liked to hear Greg Sansone, and some others with connections to PTS tell some stories but ah well cant have everything right.

“it was painful listening to Cox” was as far as you needed to go.
Why they had that idiot on for such an important day I have no idea.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
