We land Joey Bats.
The Pats land Haynesworth.
And there’s officially more Bush in Miami.
(Why did I say that with an accent?) (Cause I started it with Joey Bats!)
There’s more Bush in Miami. It’s the truth; don’t give me that look.
Did they sign Michael Bush too?
Uh, there’s still time.
Famous, Run that bitch!”
Happy Thursday TimandSid-izens. We are one day closer to Friday meaning patio beers are just around the corner. For me personally, it’s the beginning of a five day holiday. Bring it. On today’s show, Bronsteter and Noon are working behind the glass, Pizzo is getting ready to deliver the best opening segment for Pizzo’s Updates ever, and Tim and Sid are rockin’ the booth. Topics that may or may not be addressed today include: Reggie Bush, AskMen.com, Sidney Rice, Mary Brown’s Chicken, Jerry Meals, Albert Haynesworth, Nnamdi, Jose Bautista, Kevin Kolb, and Booster Juice.
Booster Juice and Shitty Wheatgrass
Before the guys get into any sport talk, the first thing on the agenda is Booster Juice. Sid officially had his first smoothie from Booster Juice today and boy was he impressed. Tim’s been drinking them for awhile now, but when Sid had to head down to the York St. location to cover Jose Bautista (Blue Jay just signed a Canadian deal with the chain), he was given a $25 gift card. When he got back to theScore, Sid promptly gave the gift card to Micallef and then asked him to head out get him one, “it was raining fuck.” When the boys came back, Sid had his first smoothie (Ripped Berry) and said he was pretty impressed. The guys also gave Sid a wheatgrass shot which he turned down immediately. Noon goes on to suggest that they need to have a “Brow Booster” to which Sid responds, “Not needed by the way Noon…my brows have to clear customs when at the airport. He goes on to say, “This (wheatgrass) smelled like what I think Eric Cohen’s apartment would smell like. It was unbelievably bad.”
Mary Brown’s Fried Chicken & The FUCK Challenge
If you’ve listened to any Tim and Sid: Uncut in your life, you know that Sid absolutely loves Mary Brown’s and as much as he’d like to eat it, it’s not available in the East York area. In reality, it’s more of an East Coast fast food chain and from personal experience, I’ve only ever seen the dirty bird back home in Newfoundland. Anyways, during the course of a day Sid will check his twitter from time to time to see who was following him. And to Sid’s surprise, Big Mary herself began to follow him on twitter. “Sid got on twitter and he’s was practically ejaculating. He’s doing it right now in the studio.”, said Tim. Sid agrees with Tim’s sentiments, “I had to masturbate…with all do respect Popeye’s Chicken, fuck off. It’s not that good.” Sid loves Mary Brown’s TimandSid-izens.
Just before the boys wrap up the Mary Brown’s Fried Chicken conversation, Tim notices a tweet from theScore’s VP of Television, Greg Sansone. Sansone, known as the man responsible for Ryder Fuck, seems to get tired of Sid constantly dropping the F-Bomb because this was the second day in a row that Sansone tweeted about the foul language.
Sid in typical fashion replies, “If Greg was here, I’d tell Greg to his face that he’s wrong.” BOOM, Sansone shows up in studio. I wrote a synopsis about this segment but ended up scrapping it because you really need to hear it first hand. So TimandSid-izens, I beg you to listen to the following clip.
“Mary, Mary, Why you buggin’?”
Bascially Sansone throws out a challenge to Sid to see if he can not say FUCK for a period of time. Every time he fails, Bronsteter has to play the NBA on NBC John Tesh theme song. Best part of this conversation though, hearing Sansone say “masturbation” numerous times. EPIC.
The End of the NFL Lockout Brings More Surprises
The boys finally get into some sport chat and the first item up for discussion today is the NFL free agency frenzy that is currently going on due to the lockout officially ending yesterday. The big news from today include:
The Eagles have finally dealt the fifth-year quarterback to the Cardinals for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round draft pick in 2012. The Cardinals also signed Kolb to a five-year, $63 million contract extension, including a $20-million guarantee. “I like Kevin Kolb, but I don’t $60 million like Kevin Kolb.”, said Sid. Both Tim and Sid agree that the Cardinals were lucky not to have to put up a first round pick but the amount of money they signed him too? That’s a lot of dough to give a guy who hasn’t really played in awhile. The question for the Eagles now will be who will back up Michael Vick? While there were rumours that Favre could be coming back, there’s a good chance that Vince Young could be heading to Philadelphia now.
The next quarterback up for discussion was Kyle Orton. Orton showed up today at the Denver Broncos’ practice even though he knows and the Broncos know that he’s going to be traded. Very strange indeed, but the Orton is still under contract with the team so I appreciate the fact that was there, ready to work out with the guys. Both Tim and Sid go on to say that they like Orton, but Tim believes that he needs to be on a good team to win, “Kyle Orton can’t get it done on a bad team…he’s 32 – 30 as a starter.”
And with Kyle Orton on his way out, it looks like Tim Tebow is taking over the Denver Broncos. Seixeiro sounds like he likes Tebow and thinks the kid will surprise people, “They could win 7 games and show Elway that they can play.” After Sid throws out that Tebow could get 7 wins, the boys then go into a debate as to whether wins or losses to a quarterback really matters. Tim and Sid figure that there should be something implemented that states “you need to have minimum amount of snaps to be considered for a win or a loss.” Makes sense to me boys…book it.
The New England Patriots landed the troubled and disgruntled Albert Haynesworth from the Washington Redskins. The Redskins traded him to the Patriots for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick after a disappointing two seasons and a coaching change that did not go over to well for Haynesworth. After receiving a $41 million guarantee from the Redskins last year, it’s hard to believe he’s on the move already; big changes for the Redskins this year. Tim and Sid discuss whether or not Haynesworth will get away with some of the shit he pulled over in Washington. While Tim thinks Coach Bellichick could help Albert’s career, Sid’s not to sure. According to Sid, Haynesworth is a different animal and doesn’t give a shit about anything: rules, regulations, nothing. “He’s worse than Randy Moss.”, cried Sid.
Another big name to move today included the New Orleans Saints’ Reggie Bush. The Miami Dolphins reportedly acquired Bush from New Orleans; details not yet disclosed. Tim only has one thing to say regarding the move by the Dolphins, “They blow and there’s no reason to believe that they won’t still blow.” I guess he doesn’t think the deal will help Miami at all.
Interesting Facts From Pizzo’s Updates
Pizzo’s Update started with a bang, it was amazing. To follow up Sid’s mishap when he promised to not swear, and then proceeded to say fuck, Pizzo quickly found this clip for the segment’s intro. and it was, “Gold, Sid, Gold.”
1. Sir Paul McCartney will kick off the London 2012 Olympics as Britain’s answer to the spectaculars of Beijing’s opening ceremony. Wow, good luck with that Mr. Beatle. The shitty part of this update? The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin turned down the offer. #fail
2. Spanish bank Bankia put up soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as Real Madrid teammate Kaka, as collateral as they try to secure loans from the European Central Bank. Bankia helped finance Real Madrid’s acquisition of Ronaldo and Kaka by loaning the club 76.5 million euros, which went towards the 100 million euros paid to Manchester United for Ronaldo, and the 60 million euros given to Milan AC for Kaka.
3. Rory McIIroy threw some serious twitter blows towards commentator and former European Tour player Jay Townsend. Townsend was quoted as saying that Rory’s play at the British Open “was some of the worst he’s ever seen”. McIlroy took his frustrations out on twitter.
Right after Pizzo is finished with his updates, Sid quickly brings up Tim and Sid: Uncut alum, DJ Bennett. It seems that since the lockout was lifted in the NFL, DJ is anxious to get the fantasy draft going at work. “I’ve never seen anyone so obsessed about a fantasy game for sports.”, said Sid.
Jose Bautista and Booster Juice
As discussed in the first segment, Seixeiro was at Booster Juice this morning covering the Jose Bautista / Booster Juice partnership. The Blue Jays slugger just signed his first Canadian endorsement deal with the smoothie chain and Sid was down there to chat with Joey Bats himself. Sid starts off the discussion by asking Bautista what fans yell at him more. Jose Bautista or Joey Bats? According to Bautista, the nickname is quickly becoming popular and when fans see him on the street, they usually call him Joey Bats. He’s not getting tired of the nickname either; it’s all in good fun says Jose. Sid goes on to ask Bautista about twitter and the effect it has had on him since he first joined the social media platform. Jose believes that it’s important to stay in touch with the fans. When he uses twitter, fans get the “real me”. Seixeiro follows up his previous question and asks whether or not Jose has any rules when tweeting himself. “Everyone has some sort of set rules…I keep it light and simple…no politics, no religious comments.”, replied Bautista. In saying that though, Bautista hopes that the MLB never puts parameters on what baseball players can or cannot tweet. As long as players tweet responsibly, it should be okay.
In regards to Colby Rasmus, Sid asks Jose if he’s excited to have the kid on the team? Bautista goes on to say, “Definitely. He’s only 24 years old and has already had two good seasons.” Jose believes he a good player and will be a great addition to the Blue Jays organization. Jose goes on to compare it to his first time coming to Toronto and seeing it as a fresh start. In saying that, Sid follows Jose’s answer with a great question, “What was the turning point for you?” (regarding the play of Bautista over the last two seasons) According to Jose, it was when he showed up in Toronto. He found the way he was received by the fans, the team, and the employees was all positive. “I felt like I was coming to a place where I was wanted. It was a breath of fresh air.” From here, Sid finishes off the interview by asking Jose, “How many homeruns will you have by the end of the season?” “I hate making predictions.”, said Bautista. “I love making predictions.”, replied Sid. Gold Jerry, Gold! “The over/under is 50. Are you going over or under?” Bautista is still not making a prediction and gives the weak answer of saying he “wants to help the team win”, “wants to stay healthy and be productive”. Just tell me you’re going for 60 Joey Bats! Great interview by Sid though and Jose Bautista seems like a great guy – I’m happy to have him in the Blue Jays organization. He’s really the only guy I’d play to watch right now #HA (for Noon).
#_________Lasts Longer Than Sid Seixeiro Goes Without Swearing
The first match game since the break! To tie in with the Greg Sansone challenge, Micallef threw out the above match game. Some suggestions from the boys and twitter world included:
– Amy Winehouse’s Sobriety (Noon)
– Hainser Reading a Novel (Sid)
– Brett Favre’s Retirement
– Eric Lindro’s Quebec City Career
– Steve Francis with the Grizzlies
– Hugh Hefner
– NBC’s The Event
– Hainser’s Saunter for Free Beer
On today’s edition of Rapid Fire, Bronsteter had a great game of Cut or Uncut and got suggestions from TimandSid-izens today.
– Making a phone call on the toilet. CUT or UNCUT? Am I pissin’ or taking a dump? There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a stall next to the dude who’s bitching with his wife on the phone while he’s taking a shit.
– Calling a female by her last name in a non-sports setting. CUT or UNCUT? UNCUT. There’s a few girls I know that go by the last name.
– Guys who have girls as their best friend. CUT or UNCUT? It’s all about the vagine…before I got engaged, I wanted lots of girls as friends.
– Buying a jersey of a player before he plays a game. CUT or UNCUT? UNCUT. Respect to those that do it.
– Doing yoga to meet chicks. CUT or UNCUT? UNCUT. Again, you got to do whatever you can to get some lady action.
– Banging a girl on your buddy’s couch while your house-sitting for him. CUT or UNCUT? CUT. If I found out a buddy of mine was having sex on my couch, it’s out the window. I sleep, read, have my own sex, and watch t.v. on that thing.
– Typing out smiley faces on twitter or email. CUT or UNCUT? After yesterday’s tutorial, it’s now officially CUT.
Great show by the boys today, it really was jam-packed with everything. The Greg Sansone bit was hilarious and it was cool to hear the V.P. of Television talking about “masturbation material”. Again, a solid discussion on the NFL and all the free agents currently being signed. Great focus on Tebow and Orton, and in particular, I liked Tim and Sid’s idea of “minimum snaps”. This was an interesting suggestion. Pizzo’s Updates was really the best thing out of this whole podcast today. The Dumb and Dumber clip was phenomenal, it tied in with what the show was about, it wasn’t too long, and it truly showed why Pizzo is the greatest hockey analyst, broadcaster, and anchorman? in the world. Great interview with Jose Bautista, Seixeiro. My favourite part of the discussion was when you asked Jose how many homers he was going to hit. The guy was not budging – he’s too nice. With regards to Rapid Fire, I like this idea a lot Bronsteter. If you can’t do it everyday, maybe it could be every Thursday. Just do CUT or UNCUT from the TimandSid-izens; it could work. Awesome show all around and because the boys mentioned Newfoundland and Labrador, 10/10.
