    Surprise that no one has commented on this particular podcast – I haven’t heard it yet.

    This morning in 9 am hour – can’t stand listening to them earlier – Michael and Carlo could not remember call letters of their sister station in Montreal when conversing with their host Tony Marinaro, who is on TSN 960. iF I was their station manager I’d keep them after today’s’ shift ended I’d put them in front of a chalkboard and ask the to read other TSN radio stations in Canada. Poor show preparation on their part.

    BTW for Michael – Clippers beat Cavs by 41 PTS, not 39 or 49 that you mentioned. Perhaps a reporter reading result of games the night before, as FAN 590 doers, woukd have been able to remind FIRST UP hosts of Montreal TSN radio station number and correct winniung margin of Cavs-Clipper last nite. Just sayin…

    Shoalts makes a good point that Bob McCown will probably have to come back to broadcasting because he needs the money, given the financial demands of his winery. I’ve seen this play out many times before – high income earners exhausting themselves on the treadmill of excessive spending outlays.
