Thursday, July 2, 2015

  • July 2, 2015 - Hour: 3
    Marshawn is set to land ahead of Richard Sherman in the NFL top 100. Did they get it right? Brock says they couldn't have picked it better and, naturally, Salk disagrees. Salk asks: why is Richard Sherman ranked below two inevitable wide receivers in Antonio Brown and Calvin Johnson? Salk claims that Sherman would beat them, therefore he needs to be ranked ahead of them... Brock? Answer the Question Jerk: Best meats to grill for the 4th? How do you grill 'em? Jerks, gas. charcoal or smoker BBQ? Plus, a husband finds hard evidence that he's right in a long-standing disagreement with the wife. Is it too petty to gloat?
  • July 2, 2015 - Hour: 2
    At the start of the hour, the guys take a dive into Salk's dark, abysmal view of the world and are mortified by his claim that he's in a happy place. They also talk sports: Who's one the shortest leash in Seattle sports? Jack Z? Lloyd? Darrell Bevell? Leach? Someone else? Blue 42: Four QBs remain in the NFL top 100. Rank them.
  • July 2, 2015 - Hour: 1
    Need to know: Seahawks' #25 is number 11 on the NFL top 100 list. Does Lynch belong in the top 10 ahead of Sherman? The Mariners earned a complete victory over the Padres last night for the second shutout in a row. And, Nelson Cruz NEEDS to be an all-star despite the Royals sham ballot operation. This hour, Salk ruffles a bunch of Seattle fan feathers by making some questionable judgements about Marshawn and fireworks. Brock disapproves.

    Brock and Salk cover a wide area of topics this hour beginning with an NHL bit that results maybe one too many puck puns throughout the conversation.

  • July 1, 2015 - Hour: 1
    Need to know: Mike Montgomery throws his second straight complete game shutout and it seems every season, even in the worst of them, the M's have some absolutely incredible pitching performances.

    Salk clarifies the differences and similarities between Richard Sherman's contract and Russell's. Out of all the Hawks, are you surprised that Russell would be the one holding out the longest? Even if it doesn't get signed this year, the team can throw the franchise tag on him for 2016. Callers worry that paying Russell the money he seeks would eliminate the chances of landing great free agents.
