  • World Cup......what just happened?

    ....I have never totally understood how the actual game time is monitored during World Cup contests.....and when the U.S gave up a goal in the final seconds to Portugal the other day...I honestly had to scratch my head....not so much at the fact that it happened...but more at the basic concept of how time was kept....I mean I totally understand the premise of adding the extra time,,,,what I don't understand however is why they don't post a clock showing down to the second exactly how much extra time there is after 90 min. have been played.....it just seemed to me as though they basically played until the referees decided to stop...makes little sense to me....anyways Germany on the agenda next and that will most definitely be a difficult opponent to say the least....they are amongst the best on the planet.......will be out and about this weekend hope to see you soon! Rick

  • Don't look now.....the hottest team in baseball is........

    ....I have always been a Yankees fan....ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper I have been a diehard Yankees fan....and always will be....that being said I am quite capable however of shoveling credit in the right direction when it is duely deserved.....which is why I am honestly excited about the fact that the hottest team in baseball .....as of this very second.....is none other than the Kansas City Royals!!!!! With a win today they will have strung together ten straight!!!....their offense is on fire and their pitching has been more than holding their own......whether or not they can maintain is yet to be determined but the fact still remains......as of right now....THEY ARE RED HOT!!!! I will definitely be making some more trips to the K this summer.....be listening for new Godsmack as well as new Slash on T95!....hope to see you out and about soon......Rick

  • Casey Kasem will be sorely missed

    ...Casey Kasem was to radio what stephen king was for paperback horror novels...if that makes any sense.....he brought radio into the forefront and openly displayed it's overpowering influence....in other words he hugely did his part to put this medium I love on the map....and for that I and many others in this business are forever thankful...I can vividly recall my younger days as a child just glued to the radio during Casey's American Top Forty show.....Rest in Peace Casey you have earned it....also on another note....later tonight I shall hoist a toast to one of the greatest baseball players the game has ever seen.....period.....Tony Gwynn....who passed away recently as well......what a great loss for the game......thank you for stopping by as always....Rick

  • Best kept secret....Movie Sneak....Steel Panther!

    After this weekend I would definitely have to say one of the best kept secrets in professional sports this year so far has been the NBA playoffs....I mean don't get me wrong I realize A TON of people have been watching/attending.....but you really don't hear much on the streets about it.....which is crazy to me when you take into consideration how outstanding the matchups have been so far....the game sevens have been complete nail biters and the matchups on the way promise to be the same!....Neighbors movie sneak tomorrow night check out the freeloaders section at T95.com to find out how you can score passes....Steel Panther at the Cotillion not too far off and that's gonna be interesting to say the least!! I do hope you are having a great Monday.....Rick

  • Did the NBA do the right thing.....or go too far?

    ...It has to be tough enough playing second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles without having to deal with the type of off the court issues plaguing the L.A. Clippers right now....ESPECIALLY while in the midst of the post season.....Donald Sterling (Clippers owner...at least for now) didn't just get slapped by NBA commisioner Adam Silver drop kicked Sterling into another universe due to Sterling's comments recently caught on tape that certainly had undertones most would consider ugly to say the least.....Sterling has been banned for life from any and all NBA activities...fined 2.5 million dollars....and instructed to sell the L.A, Clippers.....the NBA certainly is not playing when it comes to this kind of thing......and to be honest I don't think they should...Sterling's comments were without a doubt racially discriminating in nature and as far as I am concerned there is simply no room in the NBA or any other league for that kind of thing....none......zero......Some would say perhaps Silver was too tough on him....I mean a lifetime ban??? ....forcing him to relenquish control over his team??... and I can certainly appreciate their viewpoint....however I also feel the NBA had no choice other than to put their foot down and make a resoundingly LOUD and impossible to ignore point....they had to stand up and say ....THIS SIMPLY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED HERE......and I respect them for doing so....it is 2014 after all....one would like to think we are beyond all that.....I do hope you are having a great Wednesday and hope to see you soon!
