Cliques & Donnie Wahlberg

“Today on Tim and Sid, It’s a veritable sporting buffet: from Bron Bron to Bobby Lou, we offer all the prey, cause to quote Rebecca Black, it’s Friday. Yes I did, and Famous did too.”

Hello Tim and Sidizens! Another Friday is upon us and I’m sure all of us can’t wait to finish off the work week. It’s my birthday today so I know I’m going to enjoy my Friday evening once I’m out of here. On today’s show Brevin Knight and the ever elusive Dana White will be joining Tim; behind the glass we have Bronsteter providing support and in the absence of Johnny Noon, Dave Coulson is covering for him. And remember folks, especially those with Team Live, if you use the Hastag #timandsid, you can get into the conversation as it happens. Topic for today’s Friday include: Bobby Lou again, Bron Bron again, Michael Jordan again, Dana White again, and for the love of God, thankfully, not Tony Weiner again.

However, Tim didn’t shy away from Weiner again because he just found out the news that our man Tony, the man responsible for all the recent sex-ting, is expecting a child with his wife. “To quote the great Wu-Tang, the Saga Continues.”, said Tim. Apparently, this dude just won’t go away. God knows what news will continue to leak in the coming weeks.

Bron Bron & Bobby Lou Meet Pressure
To get today’s show rolling, Tim begins some chat about the pressure that both Roberto Luongo and LeBron James are currently feeling in their respective sports. In the case of Luongo, who thought that the pressure couldn’t get any worse than it did in game 7 of the first round series against the Blackhawks? But here we here, with Lou giving up 12 goals in the last two games. According to the boys, the Vezina nominee just needs to “Go out there and prove it.” Bronsteter makes a valid point that Boston hasn’t won a game in Vancouver in this series yet and until that happens, there’s no need for Canuck fans to panic. And in regards to Sid’s Statute, whoever wins tonight’s game should win the cup.

In regards to the pressure faced by LeBron James, it appears that he’s also facing some uphill battles of his own. In game 5 of the NBA Championship, James finished with a triple double, but the boy only had 17 points – with 2 of those points coming in the 4th quarter. Are you kidding me? I’d love to know when Jordan scored only 2 points in a 4th quarter last when it involved such an important game. In game 5, the Mavericks won and have a stranglehold on the series and again Sid’s Statute came into play. Tim said he’s sure not if the statute really counts as the series is 2-3-2, but in my opinion, when it comes down to it, each team still has to 4 games, it doesn’t matter. Micallef hopes it at least goes to seven games as this may be one of the best finals in NBA history – right up there with Jordan’s final shot against the Jazz and the Magic/Bird Final in ’87. A little bit of the conversation then steered into the mocking of Dirk Nowitzki by Dwayne Wade and LeBron James. If you’re not aware, supposedly, both players were making fun of Dirk getting sick in game 5.

According to Bronsteter, he feels that Wade and James are like High School bullies and Bosh is the guy that’s trying to fit into the pack, while everyone knows he is actually a punk. If the Heat are trying not to look like Heels, this is not the way to go about it. Tim wonders if maybe the team is doing this on purpose (they like being the Heels), “They’re like kids. They’re immature and that’s why people don’t like them.”

Baby’s Momma or Your Momma?
Conversation continued to stay on LeBron and the recent news that Rashard Lewis supposedly slept with James’ girlfriend, Savannah Brinson. To help clarify some comments on who would you rather someone slept with, the boys brought in Pizzo. “Would I rather someone bang my mother or bang my wife (baby’s momma)? It’s a very difficult decision. It’s a difficult decision and nobody wants to see their wife get banged by somebody else. If I’m in LeBron’s situation, to have your own teammate sleep with someone in your family is worse.” Pizzo gets some flack for making this statement and most of the opposition is coming from Bronsteter, and I don’t blame him, it’s hard to believe that Pizzo would rather a guy bang his wife than his mother. But I think Pizzo is observing the rumour as a sports owner/fan/teammate, and the effect it has own a team. Whereas Bronsteter, it seems, is taking the view point of what and how it can affect a family as a whole (i.e. Children). The guys then play a clip of Rashard Lewis responding to the accusations and he says it’s all nonsense, it’s crazy! “It’s crazy for people to think that and they are 100% false…..They need to leave the man alone and let him try and win a NBA Championship.” Tim said he wasn’t overly convinced though, Lewis didn’t sound like a man who was telling the truth. I should also note here that Brevin Knight failed to call in or answer his phone, “Could be taking an afternoon nap or out with his family.”, Bronsteter.

Random NBA Notes
1. Tim: The Mavericks have had to be almost perfect in their 3 wins in this series.
2. There are rumours circulating that Dwayne Casey and Maurice Cheeks could be the next Head Coach of the Toronto Raptors.
3. LeBron James has only gone to the line 3 times in all 5 4th quarters.

Interesting Facts From Pizzo’s Update
1. Big Papi, David Ortiz seemed to blame the media the other day for getting hit by a pitch from CC Sabathia.
2. Scott Martini from the suburbs of Chicago and huge Cubs fan, burned all his Chicago Cubs memorabilia after his son Nick Martini was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals. Talk about a Dad being there and supporting his son. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get traded in the future to the Cubbies.
3. Tony La Russa, the Manager for the St. Louis Cardinals, just managed his 5000th game. Talk about an era. Unfortunately for him, the Brewers spoiled the 5000th party and won the game.

Once Pizzo finished up with his update, Bronsteter played some classic Canadian Hip-hop from the ’90’s. Please tell me you remember Northern Touch featuring Rascalz, Kardinal Offishal, Choclair, CheckMate, and Thrust!

The boys follow the tune with some talk on the City of Vancouver and the fact that it could be considered the Centre of the Universe right now. Between the UFC, the Olympics, and now the Stanley Cup Finals, the city definitely has lots to celebrate. It’s not only one of the most beautiful cities in Canada, it’s becoming a sports and entertainment hot bed.

Dana “Motherfuckin’ White
* Please see the official transcript shortly for the entire interview between Dana and Tim. Amazing job Tim, you really knocked that interview out of the park.

The guys then discussed the recent New Kids on the Block concert that took place at the Rogers Centre the other day. Tim mentioned how he was on his way home from Co-ed Softball when he noticed “there were more 40 year old fat girls than I could take a stick to; all Cougars.” Bronsteter said he experienced the same thing when he was on his way home and both guys suggested that Hainser and Cabbie could do some serious damage in amongst all those uglies.

Rapid Fire
What We Learned This Week:
– Popeye Jones son Seth, is a legitimate NHL Prospect.
– According to Sid’s Statute, the Mavs will win the NBA Championship.
– Brian Cardinal is the NBA’s Tim Micallef.
– Tim and Nooner are jealous of John Buccigross’ golf score.
– Mauro thinks you would beat Sid in a fight.
– Anthony Weiner is a lier.
– Hainser hates Frank D’Angleo.

And to finish off Friday’s episode, Bronsteter threw out some interesting Rapid Fire questions.
– Which League Commissioner would you most like to interview? Tim thinks it would be Gary Bettman, but for me it would be David Stern.
– Have you ever seen a woman walk around topless in the City of Toronto? I’ve only seen this once up by the bus station near Nathan Philip’s Square. She could have been a crack-whore though.
– What is the worst sports facility you’ve ever been to? I would have to say the old Memorial Stadium in St. John’s, Newfoundland. It was the old home of the St. John’s Maple Leafs – definitely a building that was falling apart.

Great show today guys. There was no need to do an extended Rapid Fire as Tim managed to get to all the topics. To bad Brevin Knight didn’t show up but I think I was more interested in the discussion about the MAVS/HEAT series anyways. I have to give a huge thumbs up to Tim for a great interview with White. Dana White is definitely a personality and I think the questions directed at him were original and they gave him something to think about. HORNS should definitely be directed towards Bronsteter for even getting him on the show. Thanks Aaron from all the Tim and Sidizens – It’s very much appreciated. 9.5/10.

UFC Prez, Dana White…Take 2

 

Great news today Tim and Sidizens!. Tim and Sid: Uncut will be attempting to speak with UFC President, Dana White again. Unfortunately, the show was unable to connect with him earlier in the week, but it looks like it will be happening this afternoon. What a way to end the long work week.

“It’s going to be an awesome fuckin’ afternoon.”

Remember to tune into the Score on SIRIUS Radio at 4 PM ET on Channel 158.

German Fever & Studded Thongs

“Dana White with Mauro as the glue, the Bruins go in search of win number 2, and your boy Dirk is sick like the flu. This is Tim and Sid: Uncut….”

It’s hump day kids and welcome to another edition of Tim and Sid: Uncut. Sid’s still on vacation rocking the Sour Crean & Onion/All Dressed chips with Sleemans on the side and Tim has the Captain’s wheel all to himself. Noon and Bronsteter continue to give support behind the glass; they’re joined by Ms. Nadine Liverpool as they continue to try and erase the Intern title. Great day today as the topics include: Bill Russell, Juan Jose Barea, Roberto Luongo, Tony Weiner, Aaron Rome, Lady Gaga’s thong, the Individual and the Team.

First up, a little question about Lady Gaga’s studded thong that she wore recently at the CFDA fashion awards show. Tim sounded shocked that she was wearing such a thing – Bronsteter however, thought it was a litle conservative. The chick’s got balls. Check out the pictures here.

NBA: The Individual vs. the Team
The conversation finally got into my favourtie topic, m**therf’n b-ball. A huge game last night from the NBA Championship finals; so many stories to discuss. If you’re not aware, the Mavericks, being down once again in the fourth quarter, came back and defeated the Miami Heat is the last few minutes of the game. Another collapse for this supposedly “super” team. Tim also points out that he was wrong – he believed that the Heat would win the series in 5 games, now it’s looking more like 6 or 7. Either way, he stepped up and admitted defeat unlike other co-hosts of the Tim and Sid: Uncut radio show/podcast 😉

One of the big stories last night was Dirk’s ability to play tough in a finals game while battling the flu. Definitely not the flu game that Jordan had in the 97 Finals, but a flu game nonetheless. MJ had 38 points during that game against the Utah Jazz and in my opinion, they were a much tougher team than the Heat. Other stories that evolved from the game were:
– Lebron’s disappearance
– Jason Kidd was scoreless
– Jason Terry finally showed up
– Peja was so bad, he was replaced with Brian Cardinal who rocks the Micallef/Hasselbeck.
According to Tim, there were alot of individual stories that took place, but he pleads with the Tim and Sidizens that we understand and realize that this is a team game; it’s not just about the individual. Tim is not saying that we shouldn’t enjoy the individual performances, such as Wade’s monster block on Chandler, just remember to keep it in perspective. If one of these teams are going to take a strangle hold on this series, it’ll probably be the TEAM that shows up.

Also discussed in this section was the recent article written by Tim and Sid: Uncut alum, Jason Whitlock. The article is about the idea that the media sometimes attempts to drive a wedge between Lebron James and Dwayne Wade. The article also discusses a little bit about James’ change in jersey number from #23 to #6. I couldn’t do the article justice by summing it up, so it’s better if you click here and check it out yourself.

Kelly Hrudey Returns to Uncut-ville

It was great to have Kelly Hrudey back on the show today. He actually stopped by several weeks ago when Tim was on vacation. Hrudey is a retired NHL goaltender and now hockey broadcaster with the CBC. The first thing Tim asked was in with regards to the hit on Horton and the suspension given to Aaron Rome. Hrudey thought the 4 games was harsh and he’s still trying to get his head around this suspension. He said he knows for a fact that Rome wasn’t trying to do anything dirty and it’s just one of those unfortunate things that happens in a sport that’s so fast. And was it cheap? Hrudey doesn’t believe it was a cheap hit either; Basically, Rome isn’t going to play unless he hits, that’s what the guy is there to do, “If you’re not going to pay attention, it’s not up to everyone else to safeguard you. That’s your own duty.” Kelly is definitely not happy that Horton is in the hospital, but if it wasn’t Rome, someone else would of dropped him. The ironic thing about the whole situation is that during that same night, the finalists for the Mark Messier award was announced and those kinds of hits that Rome threw were what we once praised Messier for doing, now we’ve gone a 180.

Conversation then flows into the psyche of a goalie and how Roberto Luongo would deal with letting in 8 goals the previous night. Before this though, Tim drops the stats on Hrudey and his ’93 playoff run with the Los Angeles Kings. During that time, Hrudey let in 9 goals to Calgary in one game, and then 7 goals to Vancouver a series later. Even though they won both series, it was still pretty funny to hear Tim call out Kelly’s shitty games. Tim asked Hrudey if he thought the Canucks were in a similar position and how do you bounce back from it? Kelly believes that Luongo has been a different goaltender since the Blackhawks series and history says he should bounce back. When you experience crappy games, it can have an affect on the psyche of the athlete, and sometimes that can keep you down. But if you experience fortune and come out on the good end for a change (i.e. Finally beating the Blackhawks), it can have a great effect on the person. Other areas of conversation focused on how deep each team were, the players that have been stepping up, and cohesiveness. Kelly Hrudey has got to be one of the nicer guys in sports broadcasting.

After Hrudey hangs up, the boys have a little reflection period and remember the doo-rag that he used to wear. Noon figures, “It’s with his shitty helmet with the flat mask.” Tim, Noon, and Pizzo all go with Vancouver to rebound from the bad loss, but Bronsteter believes that Boston will continue with the momentum. Was Orville ever correct! Cam Neely, Bobby Orr…. I’d say bring in Ray Bourque now.

Interesting Facts From Pizzo’s Update
A little interesting stat brought forward by Pizzo before update. Of 12 playoff games where Luongo gave up more than 6 goals, the guy has rebounded by winning 8 of those with games allowing 1.5 goals/game and had 3 shutouts in those 12 games. The guy clearly bounces back (that stat failed to hold up last night).
1. Ron Artest is working on a new reality show called Last Second Shot. It’s focused on rehabilitating paroles. I wonder if JJ Barea will watch this.
2. Kobe Bryant held a press conference with his wife to discuss their new charity for Homeless Youth. During the Q and A period, he got quite testy with reporters who asked him anything on basketball.
3. Mark Teixeira, injured Yankee, takes to twitter and asked fans for prayers. Sorry, you got hit by a ball, make millions of dollars, and I’m stuck in a cubicle. I’ll save my prayers for myself.

The Over-Caffeinated Canuck, Mauro Ranallo
The man with the newly shaven head, MMA commentator and announcer, Mauro Ranallo is in the house. As the boys are waiting to get Dana White on the line, they do some pre-chat on the upcoming Score Fighting Series in Mississauga this weekend. Accoring to Ranallo, next to the UFC, it’s the best MMA card that Canada has ever presented. Some of the huge match-ups include:
– Jordan Mein vs. Marius Zaromskis
– Joe Doerksen vs. Luigi Fioravanti
– Josh Hill vs. Roland Delorme
It’s going to be a great night and from the sounds of it, Ranallo believes the card has something for everyone. Tim asks Ranallo is he thinks a win at this event will put Jordan Mein on Dana White’s radar? Ranallo believes that the guys Mein has fought in the past haven’t been pushovers, they were tough fights. He could easily see him make it to the UFC in the future, so it’s not a matter of if, it’s just when. But there’s no rush, the kid is only 21.

I should mention here that Dana White still hadn’t picked up his phone and time was running out. Hey, that stuff happens, especially with a guy like White. Ranallo hasn’t even gotten the guy on his show – props to Bronsteter for almost snagging the guy up. Apparently White will guest on Tim and Sid: Uncut in the future. Either way, Tim and Mauro got into a little UFC 131 chat happening in Vancouver shortly. The big fight of the night is Shane Carwin vs. Junior Dos Santos. Ranallo feels that Dos Santos pulls out a win and the fight doesn’t get out of the first round. According to Ranallo, other fighters to look for in this card is Canadian Sam Stout and Jesse Bongfeldt. Personally, I want to see Stout fuck up someone.

Since the Dana White interview didn’t happen, the guys get into some random chat that included:
– The fact that Tim and Sid have mentioned guys on their show, who then die days later.
– Ranallo loves all the Tim and Sidizens.
– Noon and Ranallo used to call Bingo games.
– There doesn’t appear to be support for the UFC in the State of New York.
– In regards to the hit on Horton, Ranallo believes in “an eye for an eye.”
– Tim’s old man used to play hockey and it was never as violent then, as it is now.

Rapid Fire
Bronsteter thinking outside the box today! A new game introduced called Who Would Win a Fight Between ________ and __________.
– Sid Seixeiro and Tim Micallef. I love you Sid, but I think Tim outweighs you. His weight might take him to victory.
– Today’s version of Hulk Hogan and the Iron Sheik. I’m going to take the Sheik in this one. Hogan’s divorce took a toll on the guy.
– Hainser and Frank D’Angelo. This is a hard one. It will depend on the sugar content of both Cheetah Power Surge and Orangina. Sugar crashes can take you down and deplete your energy.
– Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Federer reminds me of Bond somewhat. Silent ninja kick to the head.
– Tim Thomas and Roberto Luongo. Tim Thomas kicks this guy’s ass all over the ice.

Extended Rapid Fire
Again, discussion about items that weren’t mentioned or very briefly talked about.


1. Juan Jose Barea: JJ had a big game in game 4 of the Championship finals. The PG had 8 pts. 3 rebs. 4 asts. in 21 minutes with only 1 turnover. A solid night.
2. Tony Weiner: The dude continues to suck. I just found out that his wife is pregnant. This just keeps getting better.

Well, I’ll admit, I was disappointed in not hearing Dana White today. But I completely understand that this shit happens, especially in the radio business from time to time. But hey, between Mauro and Kelly, the show was still jam packed with information and edu-tainment. Another great interview with Hrudey – I really like the fact the guys tap into his wealth of knowledge from time to time about the game. And Mauro, what else can you say about him? The guy is a ball of energy and it sounds like he’s going to explode everytime he speaks. I liked the new game in Rapid Fire Bronsteter – well done, definitely questions that people could debate about. Well done boys. 9/10.

UFC President, Dana White…

Great news today Tim and Sidizens about tomorrow’s show. Tim and Sid: Uncut will be speaking with UFC President, Dana White. Love or hate the guy, he’s one of the main reasons why the UFC has reached it’s level of status since he was installed as its president by owners Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta. It’s only Tuesday and Tim’s talked with Stephen A. Smith, Scoop Jackson, and now White. As Dana would say, “It’s going to be an awesome fuckin’ afternoon.”

Remember to tune in tomorrow at 4 PM ET on SIRIUS Channel 158.

The “Hematoma” of a Champion

Sid “Sexy” Seixeiro is in the building! The man who always steps over the line, who doesn’t have an inside voice, and curses like the devil was back in the studio. While Tim held the fort like no other last week, it was still good to have Sid back. He brings an element of randomness – and random is what we got. Initially, I really didn’t know what to expect on today’s Tim and Sid: Uncut. After last night’s Osama Bin Laden news, UFC 129, and the current NBA/NHL playoffs, the boys had lots to choose from.

Immediately as the show’s introduction finished, Tim and Sid started in on the death of Osama Bin Laden. As Sid put it, “Twitter was crazy last night. It puts us in the same room together.” Both guys began a hilarious part of the segment by reading tweets from the night before regarding the death of Osama. Bronsteter was quick on the button as each one fully deserved CSI horns. Some one-liners included:
“Osama Bin Laden has upper body injury. Will not return.” – Tim Micallef
– “He decided to take his talents to hell.” – Sid Seixeiro
“Can we officially call Osama Bin Laden the Champion of Hide-and-Go Seek” – Tim Micallef
“I guess he can shave the playoff beard.” – Tim Micallef
“Hey Tim, hear about Bin Laden? That motherfucker is dead.” – Sid Seixeiro

I could tell in Sid’s voice that he was too pumped to really talk about anything for a long period of time. He was interrupting Tim, jumping to random topics, screaming out shit – he was awesome. Give this man horns for his enthusiasm alone. He jumped from Bronsteter’s pork butt, to what Osama’s been up to before he got caught, to geo-tagging, to Seth Myers. It was a great back-and-forth by the guys. Sid mentioned that he believed the world will demand a photo of Bin Laden dead. Tim, however, wondered if maybe that might be a double standard. Would we, as Canadians, want to see pictures of our troops killed or photos of individuals kidnapped by terrorists? I can see where he’s coming from. Sid mentioned that he found it a very strange period when photos and videos of Sadaam’s death were released. This part of the conversation actually had a serious undertone and I commend the guys on having some #realtalk. Overall, this was a great first half of the radio show. Definitely important stuff to discuss as this is what’s goin’ on in the world. My fiancee loved the political chat as she works for a government “think tank” here in Waterloo. She was quite impressed and laughed at just about every sentence.

Tim also mentioned how much he loved National Anthems and how he gets jacked up when hearing them. He mentioned a particular duo Kate Smith and Lauren Hart that would be heard at the PHI/BOS game. I didn’t recognize the name at first but when I brought up the video, I remembered who he was talking about. Below is a video from tonight’s game.

Interesting Facts from Pizzo’s update:
1. During the news of Bin Laden’s death last night, twitter exploded with tweets, and some of the best tweets came from athletes. Well, actually not the best – Rudy Gay’s tweet sucked. Some tweets included: “Okay, so we killed Osama, we just need to find Waldo & Carmen Sandiego, then I’l be happy.” and “Since we got Osama, Do I need to take my laptop out at security?”.
2. Marathon story #4: Brett Henderson of St. Paris, Ohio, was stopped by officers with a taser when he refused to stop running the Flying Pig Marathon. He was running naked!
3. During game 7 between the Bruins and Canadiens, Zdeno Chara was spotted drinking Coca-Cola behind the bench for a refresher. The problem – the NHL is sponsored by a little called company Pepsi-Cola. Let’s just say they fired off a letter to Chara and don’t want the incident to happen again – not a in Coke-branded container at least.
4. If Jack Layton wins the election, Sid is moving to Buffalo. He’s getting the hell out of Canada. Tim didn’t realize that Jack went to his massage parlour – “They are gonna fuck you.”  (in best Italian accent)

UFC 129 Recap
I’m not going to lie. I actually expected this to be what most of today’s Tim and Sid: Uncut was going to involve. I mean it was the biggest news headline for Toronto this weekend. However at 11:30pm Sunday, that was quickly forgotten about as most of the talk today was about the death of Bin Laden. So I completely understand why the show went in the direction it did. Either way, discussion began with talk on the UFC’s ability to convey the energy felt in the building to the television for those watching at home. Sid felt the the Rogers Centre was “fucking crazy” with excitement, but it didn’t seem to come across to viewers at home. Talk then drifted to the GSP/Shields and Hominick/Aldo fights. Sid believed, much like most people in the building and at home, that the Hominick fight was much more exciting that the main fight. However Sid was surprised that fight was even allowed to continue. “The guy had a tit on his head.” Both Tim and Sid felt that if it had exploded, we might not be having another MMA fight in Ontario for along time. For me personally, I was impressed that the fight continued….but it rang the hypocrisy that goes on at times in sports. We’ve spent the last few months complaining about head shots, fights, etc. that go on in hockey, but once the UFC come to town, we’re ready for individuals to knock each other the fuck out. I’m pretty sure the same dude that was cheering beside me for Hominick to break Aldo’s face, was the same guy that calls into radio shows complaining that head shots and fighting should be banned (Just some thoughts).

The last bit of UFC 129 talk involved the bonuses fighters get for “Fight of the Night”. The Hominick/Aldo fight won both fighters $129,000 – small beans when you compare the $11.5 million collected at the gate (this doesn’t include the PPV). Tim suggested that Dana White should watch out as a revolt could happen in the future. To back that up, Sid mentioned that almost all the guys who fought Saturday have to sit for at least 15 days – it was a brutal card. I guess the question is whether fighters will think it’s worth it when they’re getting paid so little, compared to what the UFC actually collects from a UFC event. But Bronsteter had a great counterpoint when he said that most fighters would be happy with that payday; compared to the $15,000 that some fighters, like Hominick, make per fight.

Rapid Fire
Well, Rapid Fire lasted approximately two minutes today. The show was filled with so much random shit that by the time Tim and Sid got to Bronsteter, there wasn’t much time left. However, I give Orville credit, he managed to get in two sweet questions.
Is Seth Meyer the best weekend update host of all time? Tim and Sid choose Dennis Miller. I agree with Bronsteter – Norm is the guy I nominate.
Sacramento Kings are staying for at least one more year in the NBA before a possible move. Who’s your favourite Kings player?: Bobby Jackson and Olden Polynice were mentioned. I choose Mitch Richmond, I still have that guy’s jersey from the early 90’s.

Sid’s back in the house! Crazy ass show – I honestly don’t know what to say. There was so much shit jam packed into 55 minutes. My fiancee and I listened to the podcast on the ride home tonight so I’m going to let her give the rating. Her words, “Does Sid have ADD? I’ve never seen a guy run through so many topics in a span of 50 minutes. He’s hilarious.” MK’s rating 10/10 for the political content and the Sid-isms.

“It’s 85 f**king feet!”

We built that! It’s eighty-five feet. Eighty-five fucking feet!”

“It’s like Dallas’ Texas Stadium on steroids.”
– Rogers Centre for UFC 129

Last night’s UFC event was the biggest in it’s history, as UFC 129 was held in the Rogers Centre in front of a little more than 55,000 fans in Toronto, ON. Unfortunately, there was still possibly thousands of individuals, some Tim and Sidizens included, that were left without tickets and had to watch the event from their couches on PPV. However, Dana White, in one of his Daily Video Blogs that he usually does prior to all UFC events, gave an amazing tour of the stadium and gives the fans a little idea of what to expect prior to the festivities. White gives a run-down of equipment used, the views from the $50 section to the $800 section, and the areas for fans to buy merchandise, take pictures, etc. for a full interactive experience.

What I was most impressed by throughout the whole video however, was what seemed to be a genuine love for the UFC and ensuring that fans really have a great time at a UFC event. The tag line, “A fat kid in a smartie store” doesn’t do it justice. He seemd pretty excited to finally be putting off an MMA event Canada – White really loves what he does and really believes in the sport of MMA. While alot of people have different views of Dana White as a person/owner, there’s one thing we all have to agree on – the guy knows how to market the shit out of the UFC.

Finally, it’s the dreaded Monday tomorrow, but that only means another new week of Tim and Sid:Uncut. I have no idea what the boys have lined up, but I’m sure it will be jam-packed with goodness. The daily reviews will begin again.
