The Nation is aware that Your Plainsman has a soft spot for The Teebox. Saturday morning, 8 to 10 am. Rick Arnett -- one of the original Ticket Seven -- and his colleague Craig Rosengarden talk golf and a lot of other things. To my ear, very entertainingly. A lot of P1's sleep through it, but if you're up going for a jog or starting your errands or waiting for The Orphanage, give it a spin. I'm not a golf guy but I still like the show. Nice, easy, frequently funny. Just a a real nice sound to start the weekend.
Confessor email correspondent C.S. applauds the recent contributions to that showgram of one Casey Millen. Now, I must say, I suspect C.S. is a female and may have an intimate correspondence with Casey, so there may be some special pleading here. But even discounting the comment for this possibility, I think his/her remarks are of interest:
"The up and coming Casey Millen seems to be getting a lot more attention from Ticket fans for his blue one-liners and irregular bits. Today Casey performed a bit of high comedy on the Tee Box and I’m a bit confused on what to think.
"The bit featured his creation called “Golf Metal” which was wildly inappropriate for the venue (duh). I think it was a stroke of comedic genius that played like an Andy Kaufman bit because Craig and Rick didn’t seem to understand the gag.
"I attached the audio. I think this Millen kid has something, and I look forward to seeing where it goes. I’m curious as to whether any other P1s heard this bit, and what they’re thoughts were.
"Either way you look at it, the Tee Box has become a bit cooler due to this guy’s shtick."
Many thanks to C.S., Millen intimate or not, for the clip and the comment.
I think The Teebox is getting better as time goes by, too, and I agree that C. Millen may have a little something that the Nation should keep an eye on, C.S.'s special pleading notwithstanding (if I'm right that this email is something of a plant).
I do think that Rick and Craig basically got the bit, but since it was about 12 seconds long, there wasn't much they could do with it. They also mentioned a creative "open" to the show that Casey had done. I'm out of town and missed the showgram today, but I would welcome the Nation's views on Casey (or the Teebox).
