The wet spring



has meant a 24-7 early summer for Your Plainsman.  Working seven days a week and into the evening and that means very little Little One and even less original MTC journalism.

Thanks for keeping the comments coming.

And please, if you're remarking on something specific that you think everyone surely has heard, everyone almost surely has not so don't go easy on the context, thanks.


BREAKING:  from Guys' Night Out

David P sends us his moving compositions --

(1) "Baseball Talk"  (notice Mike R's open mouth and Corby's closed)




(2) "Register to Win" 


My thanks to David P for these works. 

More, please.

Looking forward to GNO this afternoon; this will be my first. I have been to remotes but have never been able to schedule a GNO.

The Plainsman said...

Hey, East Tex, take some snaps and send them to me at ThePlainsman1310@gmail.com (not case-sensitive).

Same with any of you who are going to GNO, share your images. I've posted snaps from GNOs before here, always interesting to see the hosts mingling amongst hoi polloi.

And of course, reports from the scene are always welcome.

Fahey getting pepper sprayed:

Fahey should have had that funded. Easily five hundo.

Does anybody know the name of the app that Fahey did the BAD Radio segment on? I use iPhone and would like to check it out.

"The all female firm can even the playing field because they understand how women think" Really?

@9:37 You have no idea how much this spot drives me crazy. Can't believe I'm saying this but I am starting to miss norms bathroom recorded addiction psa's.

I enjoyed TC's co-hosting work, yesterday. This does not excuse his tickers. It's much different from the likes of Jake or the Sirois (sp?) brothers, but all in all, I thought the show was a good one. In fact, I loved the Saturday lineup. I am still confused over the local music show. It doesn't seem to fit...plus...I was a huge fan of the Adventure Club with Josh and Kevin (and then just Josh)...so this, too, is something different. Not bad. Just not my preference on this station.

@1154. Yeah I'm wondering the same thing. I assume you are referencing the BAD radio "Friday bit" where Fahey used the app to simultaneously call 2 ticket host where each says "what'd you want, you called me....what'd you want). I can't find it on iOS store? Does anybody know which app Fahey used?? Sounds like a great prank. Thanks

Once again SMH at Corby and Danny. It doesn't matter how unreasonably a police officer acts. Has there been any time in the history of law enforcement that copping an attitude with an officer has made the situation better? Get it over with as quickly as possible and if you think you were mistreated file a complaint with the PD. How do you think this officer would have fared when they reviewed the tape under those circumstances?

IIRC they have discussed in the past that when an officer approaches you and asks if you know why he stopped you, your response helps give him a read on your state of mind or physical condition. So it seems to me that when the officer asked her to put out her cigarette, he was assessing her level of compliance.

I would like to ask Corby his question in reverse. With all that has been going on with the police the last few months, why would you want to challenge an officer?

Anonymous said...

Asking a suspect to put out there cigarette is standard procedure. Why? Because it is a potential weapon, e.g., burning the officer's face, sticking it in an eye. It's common sense. Alas, common sense is a thing of the past. Now we just "feel it."

ATXp1 said...

Putting the cigarette as I understand is primarily to avoid the cigarette smoke masking the odor of alcohol, drugs, etc.

Arky P1 said...

The officer also asks for the cigarette to be put out because the smoke can mask the smell of alcohol or drugs. Like @8:33 said, standard procedure.

blergoyen said...

Apparently, some cops tweeted the Musers when they talked about the Sandra Bland case a week or two ago. The cops claimed it is standard procedure to ask a driver to put out their cigarette. The smoke from a cigarette can mask odors such as marijuana in the car or alcohol on the driver's breath. I don't agree with it, but that was the message to the Musers.

If you are of the opinion that you don't have to put out your cigarette, I say just your crack the window and hand your license and insurance to the cop. Take the ticket through the crack in the window if you want to sign it, hand it back and be done with them. No reason to exchange words.

He was conducting a "field investigation" in which she needed to comply with his requests. Her attitude certainly didn't help. She VERY easily coulda driven off with a warning.

I am very tired of Cobby and Danny's political leanings. They love to say how they don't like "extreme" any side, but they both lean FAR left. Corby LOVEs to act like he is so above the political fray...you know, the voice of reason. I especially love it when either has a "knee Jerk" reaction to a social issue and everybody who disagrees with them is idiot.

I want warn confessors of something we all hear DOZENS of time a day if we are P1's. Commercials. Instead of blindly using my favorite host endorsed company, i check reviews easily found online and thru the BBB. I have been shocked at some of places they endorse (I know its just business) and the bad reviews. Omitting names, I needed a plumbing company to install a tankless hot water system at my house. A ticket endorsed company happen to be at my next door neighbor's house. I went over and asked them for an estimate which they gave me. Then I did my research and went online and found horrible reviews with this company. I then found a smaller plumber with great reviews and he did it for $700 LESS than endorsed company. It is very expensive to advertise with our beloved Ticket. You have to remember that cost has to be passed on to the consumer in the form of price paid. Also, i won't use the ones who BOMBARD us nite and day. There are some I hear that I can't turn the station fast enough. Lastly, does anybody know the country of origin of Seymour Wallchuk??

The Plainsman said...

Declaring a moratorium on police-stop talk on this string. Thank you.

Arky P1 said...

It isn't so much that Corby and Danny are far left leaning, I can deal with that, it is their hypocrisy and soapbox lectures that drive me nuts.

With that said, I have been really enjoying the Ole Gray Wolf as of late. I love to hear him talk baseball. He seems to have taken back a little of the reins lately, and I like it.

Love the Musers' baseball roundtable with Evan and Jerry Fraley. Looking forward to training camp broadcasting.

Junior's top 5 - bottom 5 this morning is one of the many reasons he is the best host on the ticket, and it's not even close.

Scruffy said...

Is there a bigger blowhard on the air now than Steve Denis? I didn't think middays on ESPN could get worse and have more unfounded arrogance, but they found a way.

Boo! said...

I want to say that I enjoy Jake on with the Musers. He fits really well.

Arky P1 said...

@Boo, I really enjoy Jake too. Good mix.

It was nice to hear BADD Radio mention the commercials stepping all over the stream. Nice to know at least someone knows about it. It's amazing the engineering screw ups involved with the move to the new studio.

I reached an all time low yesterday during my Tom Grieve Show punch-out. I listened to Mike Francesser. I wonder if the hosts really like having Tom on, or if they have no choice due to sponsorships. I wish Tom Grieve was on today though. It would be funny to hear him try to sugar coat that dumpster fire from last night.

Scattershooting while contemplating my next move....

Jake does well with The Musers. He has a wicked sense of humor. I'd like to see him do it on a consistent basis, though. Being "on" every now and again is one thing, to do it day in-day out for 21 years, a la Gordo, is another thing. But from what I've heard, nicely done, Jake.

I get neither Fahy nor his stunt. Sorry, but it seems to me one big scream for attention. I've known a lot of "Don't look at me, LOOK AT ME!" dudes in my life. He fits that type. From the wearing of the same shirt all week to "see if anyone would notice" to the going out of his way in the control room to let everyone see that he's doing something "odd," it all screams of a real thirsty dude. But I must say that he has captured the attention of one Mike Rhyner, which is goof for his short term prospects as far as The Ticket goes. So I'd have to say mission accomplished. The question is, at what price to his future prospects? This isn't Stern and the Wack Pack back in the mid-90s hey day.

Norm is beginning to drive me crazy. Cactus dubbed him a "concern troll." Couldn't agree more. He invents issues and problems, forms a narrative based upon them, and proceeds to waste a segment(s) on his analysis of said cooked up issue.

THL is in an interesting phase. Danny and Corby continue their slide down the stupidity pole. Danny disappoints me in this regard. But that's what happens when you live in an echo chamber. Corby. Well, if you caught his "buddy that sold polo shirts outside the frat house" tale yesterday, then you understand why Corby is Corby. What is interesting, however, is Mike's beginning to take back the helm of the USS Hardline. Lately he's been taking more control of his scene. Just yesterday Danny was indulging in moronic, bar buzzed, high schooler "I'd like to date X celebrity" talk (not the first time he's engaged in this, by the way). Corby was playing along. After a minute or two, Mike stepped in and said in a not so muted disgusted manner, "that's enough of that," and they went to break. Of late, Mike's been more engaged on the whole. I know he goes through periods of more or less engagement, but I hope this one sticks around for awhile.

Glad to have Bob back. Though I must say that while he was away, Dan's sports talk actually got better. He seemed more at ease in expressing his sports thoughts. I honestly think they would be better without each other.

The FM signal is awful. the stream is awful.

Yet, I love The Ticket.

Stay Hard, MTC!

Cowboy training camp starts tomorrow. Ticket guys will be there. Those of us that are part of the anti Cowboy faction are about to get kicked in the balls for weeks.

Will be listening to a lot of podcasts starting tomorrow.

What will everybody be doing during the daily punch out known as the press conference?
After five years, we know Garrett is not going to give us anything we can use other than the daily injury report and Jerry and Stephen are an instant punch out.
Please go back to sending an intern or a JV'er out to cover the pressers and then report if they actually get something.
TSL at 95.3 The Range is about to increase.

Shaggy said...

Thanks for letting us know.

Wait, did I just post that on Grubesismyleader.org by mistake?
