I bet you could write some thematically appropriate lyrics for this

YEAH JEETS! I am stuck in a meeting today, so I am sad to miss my Sportsy fix!

Now for a word from Vermont Teddy Bear...

So, what's on the show today? Canada win hockey world championship? Russians are unsportsmanlike in return? Premier league teams keep switching managers?
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:04pm Danne D:

Flying Indycars, Caryn

The Holyfield/Romney travesty.

vlad should have been playing for the russians, then. we squished 'em like cockroaches.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:06pm Danne D:

The Russians were total bad sports at the World Championships this weekend when they lost to Canada in the Final - left before the anthem.

Naturally Kovalchuk was the ringleader of this. Ovechkin, to his credit, tried to keep his teammates on the ice.

Vlad Putin is like the Doug Flutie of dictators.

Yeah, 5'7" is pretty shrimpy. You shrimp.

You can't root for both the Cubs and the White Sox.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:09pm Caryn:

That "Putin scores 8 goals" video is the modern equivalent of those ridiculous "Mao swam the Yangtse from end to end" or "Kim Jong-Il made 18 hole-in-ones in a row" stories. Sure sign of a dictator: ridiculous claims of physical feats.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:10pm Danne D:

I respect my President 1000 times more because of this Cubs Snub
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:11pm Blunterson:

Jim is indirectly responsible for catapulting Obama into the presidency
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:11pm Danne D:

Interesting thing - that Keynote Speech in '04 only was on the cable news networks - ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX took that night off from convention coverage
  Mon. 5/18/15 6:12pm JakeGould:

Putin is kind of a dude.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:12pm Danne D:

Jim - did Bob Dole talk about himself in the 3rd person when you met him?
  Mon. 5/18/15 6:12pm BriJet:

Crazy! That keynote was so exciting to watch!
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:13pm Danne D:

The Bush's (i.e. elder Bush) do have family ties to Massachusetts - so not so crazy that he'd do an event there.
  Mon. 5/18/15 6:14pm BriJet:

Gosh, when Kerry lost I taped the concession speech and then CSPAN then played re-runs of Clinton winning in '92. Haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:14pm Carmichael:

The Bushes have ties to Saudi Arabia, too. He should do an event there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:15pm Carmichael:

Putin is a dude's dude.

Some great Softball action yesterday
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:19pm redkayak:

Right on. Go White Sox!
  Mon. 5/18/15 6:19pm BriJet:

Haha, love hearing this Cubs convo! Amazing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:20pm Caryn:

North Side/rich people: Cubs. South Side/working people: White Sox. Putting it very simplistically.

Wrigley Field is at the Addison stop on the Red line north of the Loop.

Hamilton's not very good in Monaco. It's a very different race to most of the other F1 circuits.

Has the curling season cranked up yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:24pm Ĩkє:

The image of Putin as a "dude" is ENTIRELY manufactured for Russian media consumption. He is just a creep.
reprints.longform.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:26pm Caryn:

@Ike: Putin's image as a "dude" is pretty much the same image as "model on the dvd cover of a gay porn movie about army guys".

Micah's fill-ins are highly entertaining

Not North Dakota State.

University of North Dakota fighting name to be determined.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:33pm Danne D:

Yes. That had to drop the named Sioux, Bronwyn is right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:35pm Carmichael:

Oh, can we keep talking about what sport Jesus would play?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:36pm Caryn:

@Carm: hackysack?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:37pm redkayak:

Jesus? Oh that's easy.....pole vault.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:38pm glenn:

jesus would play chesterfield rugby. or fly fishing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:38pm Caryn:

ND nickname? Youbetchas. Just because of Fargo.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:38pm Danne D:

UC Santa Cruz is the banana slugs
  Mon. 5/18/15 6:39pm get it right!:

That was pulp fiction, not reservoir dogs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:39pm Caryn:

ND is always going with their "roughrider" stuff. Maybe they should finally go for their other state nickname, and call themselves the "flickertails".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:40pm redkayak:

Yeah.....actually I can see Jesus tying His own flies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:41pm redkayak:

I always wondered if/when Jesus returns what cities or venues would be on His world tour?
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:42pm bennett4senate:

+1 it's UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs, I work here, the merch is ridiculous
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:42pm bennett4senate:

also, this is amazing that dude called you back, this is thrilling radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:42pm Caryn:

If ND want to stick with Native American names, they should maybe go for the one local tribe that's already extinct: the Mandan. Less hassle than with a tribe with living members.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:44pm Carmichael:

So, from last week I recall:

water polo
frisbee golf
competitive eating

And this week:

hackysack
pole vault
chesterfield rugby
fly fishing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:45pm Carmichael:

Unfair advantage for water polo though, as Jesus would walk on the water.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:47pm Caryn:

@Carm: also from last week: equestrian events on a donkey, marathon walking, and cross-country running.

Dragging that cross around reminds me of those international strongman competitions, so he could be in the featherweight class in that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:47pm Carmichael:

Magnus verChrist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:48pm redkayak:

Yeah! Jesus could do the caber toss :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 5/18/15 6:48pm Jeff:

Gronk slash fiction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:49pm Caryn:

@Carm: I think the walking on water advantage is the whole point of the water polo suggestion. Heck, he could also compete in speed skating without needing the water to freeze over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:49pm Carmichael:

And he could turn the whole pool into wine afterwards and we'd all get wasted.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:50pm Bennett4Senate:

how about Kiiking: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:52pm Danne D:

4 strikeouts in one inning

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:52pm Caryn:

Modern kiiking is way too easy. Oh for the old days, with the old, square swings and two people on it...
  Mon. 5/18/15 6:53pm JakeGould:

Foam billy clubs.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:53pm Ralphine:

Do you have any leftover battle thongs that you can repurpose?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:53pm Caryn:

Buddha already has kabbadi as his sport, so Jesus can't do that.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:54pm Danne D:

At Illinois they removed the symbol Chief Illiniwek (he was NOT a mascot per the administration - sure whatev). And the Indian with a headdress logo. This to get out from an potential NCAA sanctions.

They kept the name Illini - as people from Illinois.

They kept all of the songs that they did (one that sounds a lot like an Indian war-drum beat).
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:54pm glenn:

huh. there's a lot more 4 strikeout/inning pitchers than i would have thought.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/18/15 6:54pm Ralphine:

Romney didn't wear a T-shirt. He was shirtless.
Avatar Mon. 5/18/15 6:55pm Danne D:

A massive North Dakota donor was so pissed about the potential name change that he gave the $ to build their hockey arena he basically insisted that every single fixture have the Sioux Indian logo embedded in it.

The signs on North Dakota state highways have the silhouette of a native American on them. Are they supposed to replace them, too?
