Tonights Yankees loss means not only that the Bronx Bomb is dead and buried, it also means that we can knock one of the countdowns off the list.
RIP: Mike's declaration that the Yankees would need to win 5 of 6 in order to stay in the hunt. The Yankees did the easy part and swept the Orioles. Taking of the hard part, um, didn't go so well. The Yanks have lost two in a row to the Red Sox and are on the verge of being swept.
Mike, grab a shovel. The boys are dead.
(side note: If you are programming a radio station and that station happens to only talk sports and you have this guy who is supposedly the focus of your station, the headliner so to speak, and now you have this week in sports, remember you are a SPORTS RADIO STATION, and the two local teams, let's call one the Bankees and the other the Yets, and both of them are playing their top rivals for a series that will be pivotal to the season for these two teams, would you:
A: tell your host to get ready to hit the road because we are going to spend each show at a different stadium because this is a HUGE week for these teams that we cover at our sports radio station.
B: tell your host and your producer of said radio station to book the hell out of this show and get everyone and anyone who can talk about this rivalry, provide insight, give your audience a terrific the show that would be so much better than any possible show you might have - like one where you might invite people to a Bar called Anticipation and have people audition for someone without letting them speak.
C: Tell your host, you know what, you have worked about 16 hours the entire summer and you deserve a break, so don't worry about those games, you go and relax. Lay down, get a massage, watch horses run around a track, have a Diet Coke. You relax we have plenty of other radio hosts to cover it.
Mark Chernoff, which one would you choose if you were running this fictional radio station?
