The Final TimSidizen Cut or Uncut Blog Entry: “On To The Next One”

Alright, so I’ve been holding this off. Maybe it was just me being lazy or just the fact that I didn’t want to accept the fact that Tim and Sid: Uncut were no longer on the air. But it’s true, Tim Micallef, Sid Seixeiro, Rob Pizzo, John Noon, & Aaron Bronsteter, our favourite dudes to hang with everyday at 4PM, are no longer on the air or working the podcast. I’ve been getting a lot of mail of late requesting answers, delivering hate, or just plain out being a bitch for either selfish reasons or just because they love being a troll in their mom’s basement. I can get into a big ol’ entry about why I think this happened or demand they come back on air, but as with anything, it’s important to always look on the bright side. Change is good, change is positive, change always brought me a new girlfriend. Jay-Z says it best, “I’m on to the next one, on to the next.


In all seriousness though, it was a fun ride and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the show, working on the blog, and interacting with the guys. All of them, Tim, Sid, Rob, John, & Aaron were well receptive of the reviews and without their constant encouragement, I may have not stuck it out for so long. Each of them in their own right are solid dudes and gave me nothing but respect – and in the world of television and radio, that’s hard to come by at times.

Another big thank you also goes out to all the TimandSid-izens who would check in on the site on a regular basis. Starting with only approx. 10 views a day, it eventually rose to 400 views a day and way beyond anything I ever expected and the comments/feedback I received from you guys was unbelievable. It was meant to be a place for fans of the show to come and experience Tim and Sid: Uncut outside of the 4-5PM slot and all signs point to the fact that it did just that. But again, without you guys, the TimandSid-izens, this site was nothing.

Whether some of the “starting five” stay with theScore or move on, I wish all five of them nothing but success for the future with whatever they choose to do and I look forward to seeing them pop up wherever it may be. Good things happen to those who put in work, and Aaron, Rob, John, Sid, & Tim all put in hard work every day in order to keep us edu-tained in the world of sports & pop culture. You don’t become the #1 sports podcast in the nation for nothing. Until next time…shkeef ya later bitches!

Big thanks to the boys & all the listeners,
Toby (TimSidizen)

Final Laugh:

As most of the TimandSid-izens know, from time to time, I’ll throw up the photo of Micallef’s audition tape to show how long he’s been working with theScore. Unfortunately, I never had a photo of Sid from the early days of his career. Well, it’s only fitting that a secret listener who asked to remain nameless sent me this over the weekend. A final laugh to go out on with the last post for Cut or Uncut blog. A pre-Gabby’s photo.

Redemption For Sid Seixeiro: Gabby’s Restaurant Came Through

Situation: The way the story goes is that on Friday of last week, Seixeiro called down ahead of time for his usual and asked them to add some ketchup to the order. After about 20 minutes, Sid headed on down to Gabby’s and brought the wonderful deep fried food back to the studio. Upon opening the bag, Sid was astonished to find that Gabby’s gave him a single; 1; uno, a tablespoon of ketchup. Damn! Gabby’s gave Sid one packet of ketchup for his entire meal. He couldn’t believe it – what the hell was he going to do with one ketchup packet? Even Tim was shocked and couldn’t believe that Gabby’s had the audacity to only give Sid one packet.

The boys then get into a debate on what the minimum amount of ketchup packets should be given in a scenario such as Sid’s above. “How many ketchup packets would you require Sid?” asks Tim. “Five, Five.” responds Sid. Sid goes on to say that he’s still a fan of Gabby’s but the next time, they better put in the ketchup. “What you’re saying is that you want it for free?” calls out Tim. “I’m not saying that…it’s just that the next time I go there, I’m not paying for it.” replies Sid.

REDEMPTION
It looks like the situation was finally cleared up as Sid tweeted that his recent trip to Gabby’s Restaurant was a success when the chain came through and delivered some ketchup packets. 6 to be exact; well above Seixeiro’s minimum requirement.

Sid’s story though seemed to touch a nerve as several TimandSid-izens shared their displeasures or positive experiences with other restaurants who either failed or came through in the ketchup department. Some submissions from loyal TimandSid-izens include:

BhuTanClan: Trip to McDonalds

RangerRickLI: Successfully scored Sid’s limit. 5 ketchup packets

Footy Superstars Tim Micallef and Sid Seixeiro “Rock the Pitch”

This past Saturday, our boys Tim Micallef and Sid Seixeiro took part in Rock the Pitch Athletes for Africa. As mentioned in an earlier post, Athletes for Africa is Canada’s only athlete driven organization dedicated to making a difference in Africa’s most under-developed regions. The organization is not exporting sport, but using sport to help fundraise and support the infrastructure projects and sustainable development solutions Africa needs to help with poverty, famine, and disease.

Along with several other Score employees, Tim and Sid: Uncut-ville residents Micallef, Seixeiro, and Liverpool took part in the event which took place at Lamport Stadium and were part of the Footy Show FC roster. By reading some of the tweets from Tim and Sid, it seemed they had a great time.

Thumbs up to the boys for taking part in the event – I’m sure Seixeiro celebrated the win or loss and random exercise with a little Gabby’s fried food. I look forward to Monday’s show as I’m sure they’ll drop some funny stories on Tim and Sid: Uncut.

 

First There Was @Sid_Seixeiro’s Statute…Now We Have Lawrie’s Law

Remember Sid’s Statute? Well our boy came up with a new law on Thursday called Lawrie’s Law.

“Brett Lawrie gets a hit…Jays win. It’s the law.” – Sid Seixeiro

I know the predictability stat is only working on a four game sample, but it’s holding up nonetheless. Book It!

Seixeiro’s Plea: “F**kin’ Get Behind Canada’s Men’s Team. They Need Us…”

On today’s Tim and Sid: Uncut, there was some discussion and #realtalk from Seixeiro regarding the Canada’s 2014 World Cup Qualifiers. This afternoon Soccer Canada released the following schedule for Team Canada:

1. Friday      September 2nd vs. St. Lucia
2. Tuesday  October 11th vs. Puerto Rico 
3. Tuesday  November 15th vs. St. Kitts and Nevis

All match-ups will take place at BMO Field in Toronto as part of the CONCACAF second round of group qualifications. Public sales will begin this upcoming Monday, August 8th, at 10:00 ET. According to Sid, Canada has to win that group if they have any chance of making it to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Sid Seixeiro’s Soccer #realtalk

Let’s go TimandSid-izens, let’s buy some tickets on Monday, August 8th. I want to see a sea of red.

“I’m Wit’ Joey Bats Here”: Seixeiro’s Interview With Jose Bautista

If you listened to yesterday’s Tim and Sid: Uncut, you most likely heard the interview between our very own Sid Seixeiro and Toronto Blue Jays slugger, Jose Bautista. Joey Bats was was out promoting his recent endorsement deal with the popular smoothie chain Booster Juice and Sid got a chance to speak with Jose about the recent signing of Colby Rasmus and Bautista’s own success and turn around. Check out the video interview here. And if you want to hear the entire audio interview, head over to the Tim and Sid: Uncut Blog, download yesterday’s podcast, or check out the full review here several entries down.

It would of been hilarious if Sid pulled out the “I’m wit’ Joey Bats here.” (New York Accent) Great interview though Sid.

Jose Bautista Loves His Booster Juice…But What About Sid?

“Fruit can go fuck itself.” – Sid Seixeiro

The Toronto Blue Jays and MLB All-Star Jose Bautista celebrated his first ever Canadian endorsement deal this morning with juice and smoothie bar, Booster Juice. The Jays slugger was down on York Street signing autographs for fans and taking pictures. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but I’m sure a free booster for life was in the contract.

I wonder if Bonds ever drank the famous drink?

Bonds:
“I’ll have the Berry Cream Sensation please.”

Server: “What booster would you like with that sir?”
Bonds: “Hmmm, gimme…gimme the Sosa ‘Roid booster please.”

Unfortunately though, not everyone seems to agree with this healthly smoothie option. Thanks to another inside source this morning, the photo above clearly shows Sid having complete disgust for the wheatgrass shot. That shit ain’t putting hairs on your chest anytime soon.
