In Topic: Marty on with Francesa at 4:00

I could see the appeal if you're away from home, it's a little slice of the tristate area. When I'm traveling for a weekend or on vacation, I already start to miss the crappy NJ/NY car commercials or Frank Patti's Funeral Home commercial. So yeah, if I were far away, I'd probably listen to NY sports shows for the same reason lol I get it..

 

You nailed it. That is a big part of it. I grew up with the FAN, so it's a nice reminder of "days gone by", Keeps me connected to the tri-state area.

Call me crazy, but I'm a Francesa fan for all the reasons he wouldn't want me to be. His show is a wonderful train wreck. His rants, the pranking, Mongo nation. I live 1500 miles away and I still listen online. Love him or hate him. he illicts reactions.

 

As for the interview, what would anybody expect? It's a New York station and he's New York fan, so of course, 60% of the questions are going to be about the "Ran-jhas". We hate it, but '95 will forever be linked to '94. It was the final act of a three part play. At least he acknowledged our long standing success. Oh wait. In the shadow of the Rangers. Dang.

 

Ahh Francesa. He can't pronouce Marty's name right (Mar tin and opposed to Mar tan), he spent most of the interview talking as opposed to the interviewee and he stumbled and bumbled his way through every senence. Gotta love him.

Has anyone seen the actual film? It's opening here in Austin next week (I think) and I know it's playing in limited release in NYC right now, That'll be a first week watch for me, for sure.

In Topic: Devils Trade Deadline Thread

02 March 2015 - 09:31 AM

I spend too much time lurking 'round here, but I have an analogy for the Devil's deadline day situation. They are trying to sell their old socks.

 

Imagine if you had a pile of old socks sitting in your bedroom taking up space. They have holes in them, the heels are worn out. Just gross. But you decide throwing them out is a waste, so you put them on E-bay for the hopes of something back. A couple of them are nice enough and they get taken for a couple of bucks, but the rest of them sit there until the post expires.

 

Outside of Jags (who we got a fair price for) and Zids, I don't think anybody is going to buy our old socks. Zids will maybe get a fourth, but that's just trading something worn out for the chance at getting a decent Payless pair.

 

Naturally, something is better than nothing but as for the rest of the pile, I'm afraid nobody wants it.

Interesting read about Bud's anti-craft beer ad that was aired during the Super Bowl.  AB/InBev is getting desperate.

Good read. When I saw the ad, all I did was angrily tweet and then polish off my third coffee porter. That guy dropped some knowledge. Good stuff.
