Bomani Jones is BACK baby. He dropped me an email Friday saying that he is going to be spitting hot fire on Sirius channel 98 weekdays from 7-10. He will still be based out of the Triangle but the show will have a more national slant now. The show will be called The Morning Jones and will finally give us some good sports radio to listen to again. If you are a Neanderthal with terrestrial radio you need to get with the times and jump on the satellite bandwagon. If you have satellite, you should stop listening to AG (sorry Joe, you know you’re my boy and all, but I think AG is an anchor around your neck) and start listening to my main man Bomani. I might not always agree with him, but I am ALWAYS entertained by him. He should be even better without the censorship of the 850 overlords, too.
Making the rounds on the interwebs today is a story that ESPN radio host resident jerkwad Colin Cowherd made a vow back in April that if Tyler Hansbrough ever scored 20 points in an NBA game, Cowherd would do his radio show in his underwear.
It didn’t take long for Hansbrough to make Cowherd eat his words. Hansbrough followed his first career double-double against Portland on Wednesday night with his first 20-point effort against the Nets on Friday.
As this blogger points out, it was a stupid bet to make, given that even marginal players can go for 20 on any given night. Then again, stupid and Cowherd go hand-in-hand.
The archived ESPN audio from April 7th features a dialogue between Cowherd and Doug Gottlieb about their doubts as to Hansbrough’s success in the NBA and doesn’t feature the quote. But then again, I would only trust Cowherd and Gottlieb’s opinions on douchebaggery and credit card fraud.
As one of my friends (a sweet Carolina girl, no less) posted on Facebook, “I hope your studio isn’t too cold, you asshat.”
