In college he went by John and was planning to do so as a pro, but Gary McCord advised him to switch to JB to avoid the jokes.
LeBetard gets suspended at least once a year, usually deliberately. While I wholeheartedly agree with everything he said, a I believe he meant it. Part of me wonders if that was case here.
Bourbon, the Stugotz is strong in me. I wanted to add more input, but my edit time limit was done so I replied to myself to add more context to my comment.
The odd thing about this show is when you are in “You don’t get the show!” Mode the show is unlistenable. Then when you “Get the Show” it is the best.
I wanted to add more, but you can’t edit after 15 minutes, so I replied to my first comment.
Florence is in the Cincinnati suburbs of northern KY. The greater Cincinnati area really isn’t Ohio or Kentucky, it is an insular region that is a combination of the worst parts of both states. Also, their chili sucks.
I love the Dan LeBatard with Stugotz show, but I don’t see them topping today. It had everything. Billy’s odd encounters, Mina being a worse story teller than Billy, 2 segments about R. Kelly, and then the Trump stuff. Only Ron Macgill and Greg Cote HNO’s could have made this show better today.
LeBatard is odd because when it is stupid, it is hilariously stupid. However, when Dan wants it to be profound, it is that as well. It’s paradoxically both the dumbest and smartest sports radio show in America. It’s also the only self aware one.
The entire show today should win an Emmy. Before this they spent 2 segments on R Keely. The also sent Mina Kimes to the ocean for dumb shit with Saquon Barkley just before this segment.
They are both the smartest and most dumb people in sports radio at the same time. I get the the show, and I appreciate this part about them.
As someone for the far West, I’m a fan of the St. Louis ones.
Update: He was pulled from his political PTI show until he makes his decision to run or not. This coincides with his radio show tour, so he probably needed the break anyway.
If you want to see some great “stick to sports!” takes, take a look at the replies to @kysportsradio. The owner of that handle is the host of Kentucky Sports Radio, is openly democratic, and is talking about running against McConnell next fall. the receives some firey hot stick to sports takes.
It is really boycotting if you have never seen a minute a Grizzlies BB before they traded for him? I’m not changing any behaviors here.
To be fair to me, they weren’t getting any of my money beforehand. Memphis is a pain to get to from Western Ky for some stupid reason so I rarely go there even though it is close. I’m excited to Ja in the NBA either way though.
If you made that joke on a Drew article, I guarantee you he has read it.
It’s always good to see Charles P. Pierce on this, or any, site.
Dakich is a dick, but he is very good at color commentary.
