Learning to Speak

We're back with a nice long show to take you through the weekend.

First, Dan and Bethlehem Shoals get together to try to talk like sports talk radio people. They intermittently succeed.

As usual, the topics vary. The Grizzlies and Kings - better than we thought? Point guards and confidence. Lineups with two or more small guards. The mystery of Ramon Sessions. Trying not to talk about Tim Donaghy, but doing so anyway.

At the end, Ken shows up so we can check in with the Knicks. Also, would Cleveland consider a trade with a team that might be a destination for LeBron next year? We talk as long as the baby allows.

Thanks for listening, no matter how long you've been doing so (or how long the show is.)

Songs from the episode:

"Baby We'll Be Fine" - The National
"Pigs in Zen" - Jane's Addiction
"A Horse Called Golgotha" - Baroness
"Never Gonna Kill Myself Again" - Rocket From The Tombs
"Before You Accuse Me" - Bo Diddley
"There Is No End" - Abyssinians
"Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!" - Do Make Say Think
"Speakers Push The Air" - Pretty Girls Make Graves

Apologies in advance for saying that the Hornets were a disappointment because they lost Paul. They had many other problems, and were 4-2 without him. Blame it on the Okafor!

Oh, and on this episode, I can always plead SPORTSTALK!!!!!

The soldiers who died at Dieppe were almost all Canadians, not British.

And he's definitely held in infamy by my grandfather.

I listened to my first one of these today because I have a long ass research paper.


Here's what I'll say about the Grizzlies, which is somewhat opposed to your guys' depiction:

They are probably actually playing a little above their ceiling as currently configured. But post Iverson, and I think even more importantly after slowing down the pace, they're now 8-4. That's too high, but they could easily play about .600 ball from here out.

Simon--My bad on that. And if the laughter offended you, consider yourself the recipient of one free pogrom joke, to be redeemed at any time. And you have to admit, carnage aside, it is a pretty ridiculous historical episode.

No offence taken and no apology necessary, my comment wasn't meant to come across as angry.
Mountbatten's entire life was pretty ridiculous, and a solid argument against the monarchy.

In another instance of Canadian neglect, you guys didn't mention that the Raptors have been playing Calderon and Jarrett Jack together all the time.

Does the double point guard thing count with the raps...they do it by default. If the yhad a servicable 2 jack would not be getting as much run...though I like his game.

Fairly fired up about Memphis and The Thunder! tonight.
