In order to really care about the well-being of an announcer who sells mattresses and calls in "sick" for some gimmicky reason, one would have to CARE about that person and his issues in life.
I've moved on.
The product no longer merits my attention; get a grip, people--breathe a little.
*The "Next Generation of Bullshit"--OK, I'll give you this nugget about mattress man: something is up. But too early to talk about it here, I'm sure when the dust settles 'yall will know.
*I tried, religiously, to dump AM radio for a day and migrate to NPR and KQED --which is essentially listening to chime bells in between erudite news and "information." So, yes, it sucks too.
*Go to Internet radio and listen to some cool stations around the country. Buy Satellite for your car. It's only about 20 bucks and you'll get some variety --not a molecule of the "Next Generation of Bullshit" --which is good for your health and happiness --you won't have to hide the children.
*Tough day for Radnich; he actually has to get out of bed and attend a sporting event. Stop the presses.
*To celebrate "Opening Day", KNBR and the Giants will add another 20 minutes of commercials to the Post-Game crap, uh, wrap --your calls and reaction will commence around 11: 50 PM just in time for Giants Re-Play.
*"Kuip" is really geared up for the wrap: he's gonna eat 4 extra-large bags of peanuts and bury his nose in the microphone --because, well, it's the Giants way.
*To be serious for a change, the Giants PR machine --otherwise known as Larry Baer's vocal chords and the KNBR airwaves, begins its 24/7 infomercial today until October. Or, to be more precise: about the same length of time it takes Larry Krueger to talk out of both sides of his mouth.
*Brian Murphy got a serious woody last night: he actually slept in his combo UCLA/Giants jersey and woke up yelling and screaming "Hunter Pence, Lee Hammer!!, --Hunter Pence, Lee Hammer!"
*"Hi, I'm Ray Ratto, you know, doing a #2 at the AT&T Press Box bathroom is not as easy as it looks."
*Ray is not auditioning for the new kids in town and their next generation of bullshit.
*Big day for Kate Scott: between wifey, friends, and the post-game beer bong, lots of corduroy!
*Kate and Gary Radnich are still feuding --reportedly he told the Katesker: "You know, if I liked 'white women', you'd be first on my list!" --to which Scott yelled back, "Nobody Cares!"
*Larry Baer: "I've never met a KNBR woman intern I didn't like!"
*Larry once tried to convince the Giants ownership group to erect (no pun) a statue of a KFOG intern.
*Big news around the ballpark: the Giants have installed ATMs in the restrooms --I'm kidding of course but Baer just thought: "You know, that's not such a bad idea!"
*It figures that in the Tenderloin, the hookers have begun handing out pamphlets detailing the next generation of rubbers.
