The Delivery Presents – Will Our Children Forgive Us?

Episode 169 was one of those shouty affairs that happen once in a while. I had come across this article about how a doctor dopes children with anti-psychotics and ADHD drugs so their lazy parents and half-baked teachers won’t have to expend more than the minimal amount of effort to raise them and, well, it […]

Okay, there’s a reason Episode 153 went from flat calm to Rant Central Station and its name is Steny Hoyer. I hadn’t seen this article from The Hill wherein Hoyer made the most insensitive and arrogant remarks about Operation Fast and Furious I’ve ever seen until right before the show started. Blame Brent Teichmann, from […]

So let me see if I have this right. Barack Obama is the first actually black President, the first gay President, and (now it can be told in Episode 148) also the first time-traveling President. It’s true! I reveal the stunning truth, History Channel-style, in the first half of the show. Alas, my hair is […]

Episode 78 is ready for your listening and downloading pleasure. I’m rather pleased with how the show came out and a little bit surprised that I’ve taken to the long-form rant format as well as I have. Unlike a lot of radio and podcasts hosts, I don’t like to yell at my listeners. When I […]

There are moments that remind me why I love the game of baseball. Tonight’s first pitch in Texas Stadium before Game 4 of the World Series was one of those moments. Did you notice that George W. drove the cart out himself? And how proud were Barbara and Laura in the front row? Say what […]

Big congratulations to the Texas Rangers for slaying the Evil Empire and reaching the World Series for the first time in club history. I admit I’ve always had a soft spot for the Rangers, back when Pete O’Brien, Buddy Bell, and Larry Parrish were thumping the ball around the park and Charlie Hough was slinging […]

You just knew it was only a matter of time before word of Jim Joyce’s blown call reached Hitler’s bunker. Sadly, the video is not embeddable, so you’ll have to click the link to get to it. Your time will not be wasted, though. Also, if you want another reasonable, but wrong, opinion on instant […]

I have been a baseball fan all my life. I’ve watched thousands of games and I tell you that I’ve never seen a worse call by an umpire than the call Jim Joyce made to rob the Detroit Tigers’ Armando Gallaraga of a perfect game tonight. If Joyce had made the right call — the […]

Episode 33? Done in a bun, folks. I decided on another solo show this week, mostly because other parts of my life demanded more time than usual and I didn’t have much time to devote to lining up a guest or two. It’s the way it goes sometimes, but I think the show is a […]

President Obama’s Favorite Baseball Player Is…Well, Bring A Lunch. This May Take a While

| April 6, 2010

Chances are, if you’re a baseball fan, you have a player or two you admire. I admit that I don’t follow the major leagues very much anymore (this is a long story I won’t tell now) but I was an avid fan for most of my life. I can still name the starting nine and […]
