*Is there a baseball game tonight?
*KCBS' Bob Butler, also head of the National Association of Black Journalists is pissed off at CNN.
*For the life of me I thought that the All-Star Donut place in Soma was the location of the Sudden Impact robbery scene--I was wrong. No donuts for me, I'll stick to the turkey sandwich at Tommy's Joynt.
*Heather Holmes is telling people that she really is the straw that stirs the drink at gloomy and doomy KTVU. How much so? Well, if Haener and Michaelalien were cat-fighting, Holmes and the other assorted femme fatales would be having an all-out brawl. So goes the word.
*Katie Marzullo apparently subscribes to the Claudine Wong, I'll only smile if I have to. Memo to Katie: you are an attractive news reader --try not to act like a robot otherwise you'll end up being a Peggy Bunker.
*Allen Martin: have a cocktail, loosen up. Ask Rosenheim if you could take a night off and get a couple of pops at the Old Ship, damn, quit acting like your shit doesn't stink.
*Dennis O'Donnell: Careful there, Shooter. (GAME OFFFF!) (She really does have a crush on you but that's entering troubled waters.)
*Vern Glenn: Remember the good old days when you acted like you and not Raddy? Vern, be yourself. And quit the schlocky interview yap with 49ers players, you're embarrassing yourself. It's a pain in the ass to watch lately.
*The big newsie inside KPIX is that the ex-female weather star is having renewed snippy snips with Dano. Oh, for gods sake, Dano, bury it once and for all.
*More torture than a half-hour of being waterboarded: hearing Veronica De La Cruz chortle, GAME ON! VLDC: Oh please, just stop.
*Unclear on the concept department: live shots in front of AT&T Park today and tonight. The game is in KC, not SF. Game 3 is in the city. Speaking of which, time to hit the Marina bars for screaming, drunken, fat white guys and chicks wearing Panda hats and Buster Posey jerseys.
*Radnich had a tough day: sat in traffic on 101 on his way to Levi's Stadium to do a radio show. Well, see everyone, when you have kids and all that responsibility in life you have to ....wait, that's what Raddy will use soon on the all-commercial station. That's his entire script. Watch, Giants lose first game: Maybe the Royals are just a little better. Blah, blah, blah.
*KCBS: Repeat...Repeat...Repeat...Repeat...Repeat. Jesus Christ! ...and another thing, THIS JUST IN: Susan Leigh-Taylor doesn't know shit about sports. If you're gonna ask Madden a question just know what the hell you're talking about--or let Bitker handle it.
*Speaking of Madden: count the number of times the old coach says...."That's the thing."
*Sussman on KSFO: count the number of "OK's" and "folks." On an average day, double digits in half-hour alone.
*Sussman sidekick, the traffic chick: you're beginning to sound like, wow, totally, dude, hopeless, (sound the mattress train sounder).
*Bitker to Madden this morning: "So, you going to watch the Giants game tonight?" No, Steve, he's going to a wedding party in Fremont.
*Hands down the BEST TV newscast in town: Dan Ashley/KGO 9PM on KOFY: Real simple news. No nonsense or silly games. Occasional humor. Quick, straight tosses to Beil and Christian. The fastest 60 minutes on local TV--a newscast that doesn't dumb down its audience with gimmicks and artificial theatre.
*KRON/Pero Update: more screaming and yelling at staffers. Maybe he has a small something.
*Would any of you mind it if I had a quiet couple of drinks tonight with a new female reporter from a TV station? I ask because it's strictly business but with all you guys kvetching it might be interpreted as much more than that. It isn't. Who is she? None of your damn business.
*Royals in 6.
