Where to begin?
Wahlberg phone message only lacked him calling himself Mark "Effing" Walhberg.
Graham Elwood eating the noisiest food ever in the background was so funny. I love knowing the guest is sitting there as the first segment is played out.
The Massachusetts girls' hockey story with the laser-blinded goalie and crazy father is insane on so many levels. Girls' ice hockey? So irresponsible to risk blinding a child over a meaningless game! The sanctioning body is aware of the potential for permanent damage to a student and allows the other team to win?!? I kept picturing the gender-bent "Hanson Sisters" from Slapshot.
But the topper for me was Earl "From Toshiba" Christiansen. You have to dig deep in the Cheap Seats archives for a more obscure reference. (FCU-ICU, anyone?) The multiple hats. The Garvey short shorts-a-lanche. A Ron Masak reference! OMG! I am still laughing.
If the Cheap Seats DVDs never come out, the guys have GOT TO hold a Sklarbro Country Club Cheap Seats Pro-Am Golf-Frisbee-Skiing-Bowling-Corporate Games! Floorwax. Earl. Garvey. Beamy. Petersen. "Chrissy Konamacky". I would pay to see it!
I love Ran and Jay so much and this podcast is so great.
OSBALDISTON to all!!!

1. Why is Verne Lundquist actually permitted to be on televesion? I imagine his pre-game research to be looking at "Leave it To Beaver" episodes. Worst announcer, ever?
2. The "Inside the ESPN" book was so good, yet so bad - Sklars were in there, though not for much. Sklarboro should go all hall-of-mirrors and fourth wall and interview the author.
