TBTL WITH LUKE BURBANK

Weight Weight Don’t Tell Me

On Friday Andrew mentioned that he had a “wake-up call” at the doctor recently when he was told he was gaining weight and losing height. I am also becoming more of a shapely gal as I age but the point was driven home even more starkly recently.

Being both hungry and cheap, I decided to go to work early and fix myself something before the shift. I made a nice plate of pasta and sat down in a near empty dining room to enjoy my meal. While sprinkling Parmesan cheese out of the shaker I noticed my moobs were jigglng. I thought “this is a sign, buddy, you need to make some changes.” Right then and there I decided I could never let this happen again. As God is my witness, from that day forward, I always unscrew the cap and pour the cheese onto my pasta.

Now that my Cheddar Bays are out of the way (well they are still kind of in the way if I try to play golf) it’s time to address the elephant in the room. And I’m not talking about Hodor Kotb because as Emily and I were FB stalking him yesterday we decided he looks pretty damn good. It’s the fact that the door was opened on Friday for a return to the TBTL Weigh In at the start of every show. Luke was kind enough to put it out to a vote on the sTens page and immediately the Yes votes took a commanding lead from what I can only assume were mostly people who hadn’t yet heard Friday’s show. Luke seemed ambivalent and Andrew all but said he doesn’t want to do it, mostly because it’s from an era of the show of which he was not a participant. sTens I implore you to stop the weigh-ins. Middle-aged white guys have been through enough. Why should they suffer for our nostalgia?

NOTE: Kam Chancellor will not be discussed here, I just wanted to put up a picture of Kam Chancellor.

My “government” is Mike Frizzell. Friend me on Facebook where it’s nothing but screen grabs from local TV weather reports indicating that I am cold. Follow me @drewmcfrizz on Twitter. Check out Takedown Podcast‘s FB page where we just posted a new show chock full of great ideas by me.

Just One More Thing

New York Times columnist David Carr died on Thursday night. The guys did a great job eulogizing him and there's little praise I could add.

Harper “Buddy” Lee: You Can’t Bust Her!

I spent a blog "week off" mourning the Sea-Yuks loss but I was still listening to the show. There are so many issues it feels like time for my first USA Today/Larry King style post.

Touched “a” Verve… or “The” Verve?

On the morning of January 23rd, 2006 my phone rang while I was eating breakfast. I had a sore throat so my "hello" was weak and hoarse.
