Tony opens the show by talking about a little car trouble that Michael had on his way to work, and he also talks about Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning the Super Bowl. Michael Wilbon calls in to give his thoughts on the game, Gary Braun and Chris Cillizza join the show for news with Nigel, and Tony closes out the show by opening up the Mailbag.

You think Cilliza talks over people when he is in person.... wait till the 2nd segment today. Worthless.

A reading of the commercials followed by, "I liked it"

Please forgive my pale imitation of the great Mike from Burke Virginia for a moment. Please also forgive the knuckle-headed PTI correspondent from Chicago for publicly embarrassing us yet again. OMG I am so sorry everyone we are not all like that I swear.

Hey Mister Mayor McChi, may I please introduce you to Chuck Fricking Berry? May I introduce you to Bo Effing Diddley? Might I interest you in a bit of Curtis Mayfield? The Holy Blues Trinity of B.B., Albert, and Freddie Emm-Effin’ King? James Brown Band? Parliament Funka-goddamned-delic? Isley Brothers? Allll the way to the present day to Bruno Mars, one of the hottest pop acts and Gary Clark Jr, one of the hottest blues/rock talents today? Do you have ANY FLIPPING CLUE what the hell you are talking about??? Hell even 8366-year-old Tony called him out on Prince and Hendrix! There’s more to Black Music than guys in matching velour leisure suits sharing a mic onstage and singing ballads, asshole. This brown man hasn’t been this embarrassed since that KC performance last night!

I had to bail on the show halfway through. I’m sorry. I simply can’t deal with this man.

BTW, the “defensive GOAT” “in a different sport” he refers to is clearly Barkley. And I got five bucks says the only reason he is likely “not allowed” to annoyingly name-drop him (anymore) is because he of course works for a different network and the mothership’ll be pissed. Goddamn jock-sniffer.

Beer me. I’m out.

Thank you for the guitarist rant! I was literally screaming in the car listening to that stupidity. I'm sure he'd say - "Oh, those aren't "rock" guys". A total asshat. Knows less about music than he does about most things.

Buddy Guy still has the best damn blues club in the world RIGHT HERE DOWNTOWN FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST! Without blues there IS no rock music!!!!!

If you put yourself through the pain of re-listening to that segment, you'll hear TK say, "He's got 7, the other guy's got 6." So I think they're probably referring to the one person whose rear end Shill-Bon's lips have a longer time-share on than even Barkley. I'm even more convinced by the fact that he preceded part of this blithering by stating, "I know I'm being a sycophant..." In the hierarchy of his toadying, I don't think he's permitted to refer to Jordan as "a dear friend," which he surely would have, given even an iota of a chance, as he does with Barkley. So perhaps it was MJ who slapped him down more so than ESPN?

On the plus side, he did manage to work in a, "I texted with a couple of G.O.A.T.s" reference, so obsequiousness & self-promotion live on to fight another day...

Great points all around.

That plus the cigar-chomping actually makes way more sense, thank you. I was just too busy aping the late great Madeline Kahn in the “Clue” movie—“FLAAAMES! FLAAAMES COMING OUT THE SIIIDES OF MY FACE!!!”—to pay proper attention. Mea culpa.

His certainty and his ignorance dance hand-in-hand. I was going to scream about Living Colour, but you did it better.

At the risk of sounding annoyingly sycophantic myself, you may be pleased to know I couldn’t resist firing off a shorter, sanitized-for-TK’s-safety version of that rant in a patented “nasty” mailbag note.

It will likely never be read. But it has way fewer swears and waaaaay more sarcasm, so here’s hoping!

That wasn't just a Cillizza issue. That was 4 guys just talking over each other for 12 minutes. Most of the blame has to fall on Nigel since he was supposed to be ringleader for that segment. Regardless, it was unlistenable.

Thank you, all. I was losing it during the Wilbon segment. One of the best live concerts I ever saw was Vernon Reid and Living Colour in 1988. And to forget Prince, with one of the greatest halftime shows ever - during a Bears' Super Bowl appearance - or his performance at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony when everyone else on stage basically got out of the way during his solo. Maybe Wilbon should stick to sports, though I also found his take on Mahomes a little odd. Guy loses a Super Bowl to the GOAT and suddenly he's overrated?

This is exactly what I kept thinking. I pass it every time I go to warehouse liquors and was so confused how Mr. Chicago couldn’t remember Buddy freaking Guy!

What should we really expect from a big Celine Dion fan?
