I'm slapping the franchise tag on you two!
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:04pm Danne D:

(and by that I mean trading away literally anyone that could possibly help them win another game)
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:05pm glenn:

Michael Jordan is worth $1 billion now. Is that the 1%?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:06pm Carmichael:

A boot to the ghoulies.

Awww, Anthony Mason. I remember him from when I was a little bit sportsy for the NBA in the 90s.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:07pm Danne D:

Al Campanis agrees with Bronwyn ;)

I say death comes in fives.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:10pm Danne D:

Ernie Banks' death counted as a double-header I believe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:11pm Kat in Chicago:

I've seen Morton Subotnick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:11pm Kat in Chicago:

Everybody should see Morton Subotnick.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:12pm Danne D:

:( I woulda taken ya Bronwyn - but I only had the 1 extra and figured Jim was the Boston guy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:12pm Studio B Ben:

Come back to Portland and we'll go watch the Blazers, Bronwyn! And then the Rose City Rollers Rollerderby!
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:12pm Ralphine:

Minnie Minoso's first name was Miniscule.
My sister bought me Subotnick's Silver Apples of the Moon for Christmas when I was eight years old.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:13pm glenn:

bronwyn dated a ranger? one of the canuckleheads?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:13pm Kat in Chicago:

@Ralphine cool sister!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:13pm Studio B Ben:

Yup. It's 3 am, March 2nd, 1995 in Portland right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:17pm Studio B Ben:

I'll be calling in on the 2nd marathon show (I hope) with March Madness tips and tricks for better living!
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:17pm Ralphine:

Kat in Chicago: Not necessarily cool. She just knew I liked synthesizer music because I liked Switched on Bach, and Silver Apples was the only synthesizer album she could find.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:20pm Carmichael:

San Jose, CA is a ridiculous place for a hockey team.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:20pm glenn:

i don't know about that. ohio borders on canada, you know.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:21pm glenn:

canadians are complete idiots about hockey. we'll follow a losing team for years. americans will only follow a winning team, it seems to me.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:22pm bennett4senate:

yo Carmichael, chill, the Chinese food is delicious out here
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:22pm glenn:

unfortunately, jim, canada only has 5 cities with populations big enough to support an n.h.l. team.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:22pm Carmichael:

I'm in Sacramento, Bennett.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/2/15 6:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Minnesota Wild started as NHL expansion teams in the 2000-2001 season. Their hockey sweaters have a patch on the shoulder that depicts a Civil War cap.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:23pm glenn:

absolutely fantasy baseball. i'll lose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:24pm Kat in Chicago:

Silver Apples > Switched-On Bach, but maybe a bit ambitious for an eight-year-old listener.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:25pm Studio B Ben:

I'd like to draft A-Rod's roid dealer with my first pick.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:26pm glenn:

gluten, pine tar. whatevs.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:41pm RZ:

YES! Give me all the gluten!
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:41pm glenn:

or you can buy bread flour, which has a higher gluten content.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:41pm Studio B Ben:

Gluten is also often served as Seitan, leading to the current misunderstanding that Gluten Is Satan
  Mon. 3/2/15 6:42pm Robert:

It's so funny seeing all the old health nuts' advice to consume gluten & compare it to the new health nuts' advice to avoid it.
  Mon. 3/2/15 6:43pm Robert:

Gluten tag!
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:44pm RZ:

Gluten in the morning, gluten in the evening, gluten at suppertiiiime!

@RZ: So much gluten in these bagels, you can eat gluten anytime!
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:48pm RZ:

Bagels are pretty great. I worship seitan pretty regularly, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:49pm Studio B Ben:

HAIL SEITAN
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:49pm JakeGould:

Kale seitan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/2/15 6:50pm Jeff:

I expect that the inscrutability of cricket to most US folk is an essential part of the gag here, but at the risk of being a spoilsport, it's pretty easy to explain Leg Before Wicket (LBW), which I'll do with some simplifications for clarity:

The wicket is three stakes stuck in the ground behind the batsman. If a ball hits the wicket, the batsman is out.

The batsman's primary duty is to "defend" (keep balls from hitting) the wicket. The only legal way to do this is with his bat (that flat-sided paddle-shaped wooden thing he's clutching).

It's not legal for him to defend the wicket by just standing in the way, blocking it from the bowler with his body. Or a part of his body. Like his leg.

So if the batsman sticks his leg in between the bowler (pitcher-equivalent) and the wicket, it's a foul. A "Leg Before Wicket" foul.

Done! (Posted here because y'all weren't picking up the phone right away.)
  Mon. 3/2/15 6:50pm Graham Stark:

Cricket's Leg Before Wicket law: http://www.lords.org/mcc/laws-of-cricket/laws/law-36-leg-before-wicket/

Basically, the batsman wear big pads on their legs but they are not allowed to use them to stop the ball from knocking over the wicket (the target the bowler is aiming at).

Who is this guy with the marbles in his mouth?

Love Apples in Stereo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:54pm JakeGould:

“Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:54pm Studio B Ben:

BRONWYN AND BILLY! HELL YEAH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:54pm JakeGould:

Ben, so you’re not in studio B.
Avatar Mon. 3/2/15 6:58pm RZ:

I agree, good show. Nice ball and gluten talk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/2/15 6:58pm Studio B Ben:

Not yet. NOT. YET.
