    Podcast Discussion - "The Yellows and the Greens" - 9.16.20

    Chuck Todd’s comment about Aaron Rodgers and dating famous women was very Mike Milbury-esque.

    Podcast Discussion - "The one and only Tom Terrific" - 9.4.20

    I feel so bad for Ann sometimes when he blatantly pays no attention to what she has said and goes on a riff that’s completely unrelated. So disrespectful. You’re right, it is rude.

    Well, he is Tony Kornheiser, 72, with bags and bags of money from ESPN. He doesn’t need this ... and, sometimes, it shows, like today. I was really looking forward to him roasting Djokovic.

    Podcast Discussion - "The one and only Tom Terrific" - 9.4.20

    What is the link between Sean Doolittle and François Mitterrand? I listen to every show and I don’t remember the origin of “Beltway Mitterrand”. I wish TK would stop talking over Ann Hornaday. Why have her on if you don’t let her finish her thoughts?

    That e-mail about “3-D level golf talk” transitioning into talk about Paul Newman salad dressing was a dig at MK — right?

    Podcast Discussion - "Now that's a spicy pepper" - 7.31.20

    Wow, had no idea there was a Friday show until I went to check the feed for the regular Monday show.

    Podcast Discussion - "Get Out??" -7.29.20

    Today’s show was the best in a long while. From the Mike in Burke, VA e-mail kicking things off to the two songs at the end (I rarely listen to the songs).

    Podcast Discussion - "Thelonius Monk's Table?" - 7.1.20

    I laughed out loud when Super G dropped the Bethesda Bagel read. That said, I agree with your point about his appearances of late. Basketball analogy, Gary isn’t the type of guy who creates his own offense. He relies on reacting to what’s going on with the other players on the court to get his...

    Podcast Discussion - "66" - 6.29.20

    Well, he is Tony Kornheiser, 71, if I was 71 and had his money I don’t know if I would even be motivated to do two truncated shows a week.

    Podcast Discussion - "Fat Rabbits" - 6.10.20

    I thought Chuck Todd’s river/erosion analogy was quite apt. But who knows what’s going to happen in five months. Look at what we went through in the past five months: Impeachment, people freaking out that World War III would start over Iran (remember that?), Covid-19 and, now, police...

    I had a smile on my face listening to that segment. Something reassuring and heartwarming about the rhythms with which old friends talk.

    Podcast Discussion - "Happy Trails #41" - 6.3.20

    Do you guys remember the show after the VA Tech shooting in 2007? Maybe my memory is influenced by nostalgia but I remember that show being very good. I think it was TK, Jeanne and Liz or Tracee Hamilton that day. Michael needs to drop the “this is awkward” bit he does with the MeUndies read...

    Podcast Discussion - "For What It's Worth" - 6.1.20

    I agree. Though I wish Wilbon didn’t watch 7 hours straight of CNN. CNN is more news channel performance art than an actual news channel these days. You go to CNN to get your opinion confirmed rather than to see what is going on in the world. Speaking of performance art, I wish TK would have...

    Podcast Discussion - "I don't believe in drive thrus" - 5.4.20

    I think you hit the nail on the head. In a group, it’s a self-depreciating anecdote. Alone, it’s a rant. A sad display of someone who can’t adjust to current times.

    Podcast Discussion - "I don't believe in drive thrus" - 5.4.20

    Up until today, I’ve found TK’s old man in modern times stories amusing but this drive-through story wasn’t funny. It was sad. ATMs have been around for at least thirty to thirty-five years now. It’s not new technology. If you’re worried about security, go in broad daylight. Also, ATMs are...
