The show is absolutely great and really entertaining. BUT the fact they can't figure out how to put the whole show onto iTunes is killing me. July 7th was perfect, 4 hrs of entertainment, broken down by hour. Is it really that difficult to get it right??
In my opinion the show gets 5 stars, the podcasts get 1- so I gave 3 stars.
T.A.R.D for life
Been listening since the first days in the afternoon on BCN when Milo wasn't even a twinkle in Freds eye (and constantly complained about the effort involved to make that happen) and Adolfo uttered his first catch phrase "that's some good delicatessin". If you listen for one day and don't like them you're slow. If you come back the next day at least you aren't an idiot. If you listen for just one week straight you will be hooked for life. The sports talk is just icing on the cake - the personal stories and anecdotes are what seperate them from the drivel. Opie and Anthony are the only thing that comes close - and even they aren't on the same level. When T and R are nationally syndicated and aren't boxed in by the sports talk uber-conservative standards LOOK OUT. Best thing to happen to radio since FM.
Where are the hot anonymous sports takes?
