I won't be able to reconstruct this entirely, and I don't recall whether Corby or Danny made some of the incidental remarks, but Mike R cracked me up in the opening segment today. Maybe The Unticket will have it.
It wasn't so much what he said, it was how he said it. No . . . no, it was what he said, too.
Corby is talking. Rangers preseason game is on. He interrupts what he is saying to say that "[Someone] Cowsill" has hit a three-run homer against Alexi Ogando, realizing that this will make Mike sad.
There is some banter about the old group The Cowsills. Mike does not believe that any Cowsills played major league baseball.
They bantered a bit on the name, and someone said "maybe it was The Herd." (ESPN guy Colin Cowherd.)
Mike says, "I can't stand that guy."
Mike says, "The Laddie [former Ticket PD] probably knows what he's [Cowherd] is up to. And you know who else was tight with him? Djeel-BEAR." (Another former PD, Bruce Gilbert.)
Corby: "Bruce Gilbert and Cowherd were buddies?"
Mike: "Gilbert gave him his start. What did he [Gilbert] ever do for this place?"
Corby: "He hired Bob and Dan."
Mike, after a pause, deliberately and with emphasis: "Whoop. Dee. Do."
Danny: "They've been solid on middays for 15 years!"
Mike, contemptuously, practically spitting out the words: "Ah, you could get a chicken to do middays around here."
Good thing I was cruising the middle lane with no traffic or I'd been in the ditch or up against the divider for sure.
