Forgot to mention that I dig ESPN using the Clash's "Train in Vain" as the background music on Rome's promo. Can't go wrong with that.

And I love hearing the Replacements' "My Little Problem" as a bumper on his radio show when I get to hear it, which isn't often as where I work, I can't pick up any AM stations (Deep inside a large building).

On the road, I often try to catch Rome's show. Just awesome. I've been to both his Green Bay and Madison tour stops...simply epic. One of the best times me and a buddy have ever had. Of course, the tailgating and liquor (no-selling stupid Dane County ordinances RULES) might've helped. :-)

I highly recommend The Jungle...can't wait for his ESPN show. Betcha Fox Sports Net execs are cursing under their breath, though.

Jim Rome is one of those people that has little sports knowledge, so to get people to notice him, he makes his points in a loud, obnoxious way. Great job if you can get it, but I think he sucks.

I would really like Rome to debate somebody like him on his show like Vinny Mac.

I know that Rome is a A-Hole that is why people listen to him. Does he still do Tour Stops?

At least they have the sense to use Ryan instead of Shaugnessy from the Globe.

And today, Michael Holley is on, who, I will admit, I didn't know was black.

I want one of those PTI bobbleheads.

Any information on them, odessasteps?

Not that I've heard. I'd rather have the PTI Rockem Sockem Robots.

I'm supposed to be going up again next week to sit in. Maybe I can ask Tony or Mr. 74 about them then.

Ryan and Pierce both rock and Woody Paige brings the entertainment! Up here in New England, Pierce is a guest on NECN Sports Late Night. The hosts of the show suck but they do get cool guest.

Today on PTI one of their sponsors was a sports bobblehead co. though I can't remember the name.

... Rome's radio show is great from about :07 to :15 of each hour, when he has a chance to just comment on sports -- without the phone calls and inane athlete interviews. If he limited calls to just 10 minutes per hour, and limited his interviews to zero (except for guys like Mark Grace), it would be a terrific show.

He knows a helluva lot more about sports than he lets on, and you find that out when you get a chance to just yap with him off the air -- which was possible when he limited his tour stops to Southern California. The lowest common denominator makes him the money, and he knows how to simplify his takes in order to cater to them.

I love Kornheiser, don't get me wrong, but the skits of his people mocking Rome are utterly pathetic and I'm surprised he associates himself and his show with them. What's Rome ever done to Kornheiser?

Anyway, it'll be interesting to see what kind of format Rome's new show will have. Yeah, I'll be watching.

And Rickey, and Gwynn. I've liked his interviews with Cashman too. Anyone gets to tell Rickey stories on that show is gold.
