Do You Like EJs? And a Question
(1) Yes, I do like me some Eli Jordan. The Ticket has some fine Tickermen, Ty and Sean and others; even T.C. is, in one sense or another, a must-listen.
But Eli sounds like nothing else on the Ticket -- nothing, that is, since the departure of Ticker God Rich Phillips. Eli is kind of a cross between a throwback Mr. Broadcast Pipes with the staccato delivery, and a reg'lar Ticket jamoke. His voice commands attention, which I deliver even though I have almost no interest in any of the results he's discussing.
By the way, have you caught Eli and Ty's "Country Force" fill-in show? Pretty good little show, pretty darned good little show. I've always liked Ty as a host and he and Eli make a pretty cool team, I thought. Good showgram title, too. I could hear more of that.
(2) This morning the Musers were (unfortunately) reprising the Eighth-Grade-Graduation-Presidential-Candidate-Impressions Kid. Craig said to Gordon something like (precise recollection dim): "You should name him as your successor, since your last designated successor was a complete failure." And they all had a good chortle, and Craig said: "But at least he ended up leaving and wrecking one of our competitors," OWTTE.
To whom was Craig referring?
