Brothers In Arms & The Score Radio Bids A Final Farewell

“When you need a friend, you can always count on your teammates.” 
Jim Brown

Unfortunately, tomorrow marks the final day that theScore Radio will air on Sirius Satellite Radio Canada. After years of providing Canadians and fans around the world with their sports highlights and news, theScore on Sirius channel 158 will cease to exist. While some personalities will be staying with the company, we lost many a men who we’ve laughed with, listened to daily, and grown to respect. While I feel disheartened that I won’t hear some of these fallen soldiers for awhile, I’m confident they’ll thrive and have nothing but success in the next chapter of their lives. For someone who spent weekdays stuck in a cubicle, glued to a computer screen, I’m thankful to all the guys involved with the station to get me through the many days of boredom and monotony. So while it’s a shame that theScore Radio will no longer exist, it’s the people behind the shows that I’ll miss. All the best guys and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for you.

Toby (Tim Sidizen)

Be sure to tune in tomorrow to theScore Radio for it’s last day of scheduled programs.

Hainser’s Corner Theme Song

Dear TimandSid-izens,

On Friday August 19th, 2011, TimandSid-izens sadly experienced their very last episode of Hainser’s Corner on Tim and Sid: Uncut; starring our favourite “man of mystery”, Ryan Hains. The first ever Hainser’s Corner aired on May 10th, 2011 and quickly rose to be one of the TimandSid-izens favourite segments during the show – spinning 11 episodes. The formula was simple: put Hainser in the room and have him answer rapid fire/CNN-esque types of questions and see how he would respond under pressure. Sometimes his answers were whack, but most of the time he delivered pure gold. While we kid around him most of the time, it’s important to let him know that we’ll miss you. He was a stellar dude who came to work everyday and brought nothing but his A game. This is not a good-bye, but a see you later as I’m confident great things are in his future. All the best Hains! Keep it real brother!

In the meantime, let’s look back, reflect, and remember everything about our boy Ryan Hains. Follow him on twitter: @RynoHainser

Hainser Soundbites
Hainser was definitely one of the best at delivering some strange and hilarious soundbites. Whether he was singing a tune, screaming his twitter handle, or giving his insight into pop culture, he always provided laughs.

Other than that, there’s really nothing left to say. I met Ryan during one of my visits at theScore and the guy is exactly who we hear on the radio. He’s a barrel of laughs, has a heart of gold, and will be there if needed. Here’s to you Hainser – you shall be missed. A long-time listener and devoted TimandSid-izen summed it up best on Friday’s show:

Dear @SiriusCanada & @XMCanada: Getting Rid of theScore Radio = #Fail

Sirius Canada and XM Canada Complete Merger

Tuesday June 21, 2011

Toronto, Ontario, June 21, 2011 – Canadian Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. (CSR, TSX:XSR), the parent company of XM Canada, and Sirius Canada Inc., is pleased to announce that the organizations have completed the merger announced in November 2010 (the “Merger”). Operating as SiriusXM Canada, the newly merged entity will have more than 1.8 million subscribers and form one of the country’s leading media companies. The combined company’s stock will continue to be traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol “XSR”.

“The newly merged entity will have more than 1.8 million subscribers” is a false statement. As of last month, my parents and I cancelled our subscriptions. Plus, there’s a good chance that many of the listeners and fans of theScore Radio cancelled as well. Once September 1st rolls around, you might have 1 million subscribers.

“Today’s news brings us to an exciting conclusion of a process we started late last year,” commented Mark Redmond, President and CEO of SiriusXM Canada. “With this combination we have created a powerful Canadian media company with more than 1.8 million subscribers that is among the largest subscription entertainment companies in Canada. Today, SiriusXM Canada is stronger financially and well positioned to succeed in the highly competitive audio entertainment industry. Our increased size will bring a renewed focus to our strategy to lead the in-car entertainment experience as well as mobile and online listening.”

Two points here. First, your statistic of 1.8 million subscribers is incorrect again – I cancelled my subscription along with many other people I know. And two, removing theScore Radio Channel will not lead to a better in-car entertainment experience. It only makes it worse. What station are Canadian sport fans going to tune into now to get their sports fix? theScore Radio aired the #1 sports podcast in the nation, Tim and Sid: Uncut on it’s schedule, and since you dropped it, you can no longer say that you have all the best content available. 

“While both companies have enjoyed much success since the launch of the category in 2005, the growth opportunities for SiriusXM Canada are tremendous,” noted John Bitove, Chairman of SiriusXM Canada. “Our partnerships with all of the major automotive manufacturers will be a key catalyst to our growth.”

You speak some truth here. Sirius did in fact enjoy success since their launch, but theScore Radio played a key part when it came to sports broadcasting.

As a combined organization, SiriusXM Canada will have a total subscriber base of over 1.8 million. On a trailing 12-month basis (ending August 31st, 2010), the combined company will have pro forma revenues of approximately $200 million, and pro forma adjusted EBITDA of approximately $3.7 million. Not only is the merger expected to yield synergies of approximately $20 million within 18 months, the company will benefit from accelerated growth and a laser-focus on the subscriber experience.

Again, that silly 1.8 million subscribers stat. If that decreases, which it has, all your other numbers decrease as well.

The merged company will continue to have a strong presence at more than 3,000 retail locations, an expanding online/mobile offering, and its radios will be factory installed in more than 800,000 vehicles sold in Canada this year.

I’m glad to hear that you’ll be intstalled in more than 800,000 vehicles sold in Canada this year. The sad part of that is…let’s hypothetically say that 300,000 of those are purchased by sport fans and listeners of theScore Radio. You’re not going to make very many people happy when they hop in their cars on September 1st, and realize they can’t access channel 158.

Canadian consumers will benefit from this merger in several ways over the coming months. To start, SiriusXM Canada will be launching a new channel dedicated to Aboriginal content by September of this year. “We’re excited about the launch of this new channel which further demonstrates our commitment to the diverse cultural makeup of Canadian content,” said Redmond.

What about the sports fan?

“We also look forward to the introduction of an interoperable receiver later this year, allowing customers to subscribe to either or both of the two services. SiriusXM Canada has the most exciting audio entertainment content available anywhere. We’ll continue to listen to what our subscribers want from us, we’ll deliver the best music and entertainment listening experience anywhere,” said Redmond.

Wrong, you don’t have the most exciting audio entertainment content available anywhere and no, you haven’t listened to what your subscribers want in their satellite radio. I spoke with many listeners of theScore Radio who contacted your customer service line and they were told to tune into ESPN instead. Is that how you treat paying customers? By dismissing them?

The merger will have no immediate effect on the current service coverage or existing radios, and in the near term, customers can expect to interact with each company as they always have.

This is what I like to call “straight foss” or “smells like shkeef”. This merger does affect how I listen to my radio and yes it does affect how I interact with the company.

“We will work quickly to integrate the two companies, creating a best-in-class management team and employee base,” said Redmond. “The opportunity in front of us is huge; for our shareholders, our employees, our partners, and most of all, our customers.”

SiriusXM Canada is the country’s leading audio entertainment company and broadcasts more than 120 satellite radio channels featuring premier sports, news, talk, entertainment and commercial-free music. SiriusXM Canada offers an array of content from the most recognized news and entertainment brands as well as from professional sports leagues including the NHL, NFL, MLB and CFL.

theScore Radio was one of the most recognized sports stations in Canada. You don’t have it anymore.

SiriusXM programming is available on a variety of devices including pre-installed and after-market radios in cars, trucks and boats, smartphones and mobile devices, and consumer electronics products for homes and offices. Sirius XM programming is also available online at and and on Apple, BlackBerry and Android-powered mobile devices.

It’s not available anymore in two households that I know of for sure. Mine and the parents vehicle in Newfoundland. They cancelled this past weekend out of disgust.

I’m proud to be Canadian. We have the Tragically Hip, Beavertails, and theScore Radio – this is as Canadian as it gets. Bring back my radio please!

BEST OF Tim and Sid: Uncut Begins Today…

Happy Monday Tim and Sidizens! It’s the beginning of the week and that sucks ass. At least U2 is in the Big Smoke tonight; it should be a great show. If you’re at tonight’s concert, I probably won’t see you – 2 years ago when I went, there were over 60,000 people.

And Remember, today is the first BEST OF Tim and Sid: Uncut that will air over the next two weeks. These episodes usually reflect on the best interviews, best soundbites, and the best of edu-tainment over the last little while. For those of you who’ve missed out on any episodes over the last month, these would be a great way to catch up on everything Tim and Sid: Uncut.

Same time, same channel: theScore Radio or SIRIUS Radio Channel 158 at 4PM ET.

Tristan Thompson, Yao Ming Retires, The “Big E” Invades Update, and Family Ties’ “Uncle Ned”

“Yao Ming picks today to retire.
Toronto’s Bullpen picks a bad time to implode.
And we speak to the 4th overall pick of this year’s NBA Draft.”

Welcome to another episode review of Tim and Sid: Uncut – where you can get all your news, sports, and edu-tainment in one blog. This will be the last official review for a couple of weeks as the boys are only doing Best Of shows for the next little while. Don’t worry though, on behalf of numerous Tim and Sidizens that asked, I will be provide 3 – 4 daily updates of my own in an attempt to keep you entertained. On today’s show, the usual suspects are here. Tim and Sid are present, Bronsteter and Coulson are working behind the glass, and John Noon, “still on vacation and haven’t seen a tweet lately – must be hammered out of his fuckin’ skull; can’t type” is absent. Topics for your edu-tainment from Friday’s show include: Travis Hafner, Yao Ming, Mike Commodore, Steve Stamkos, Kevin Pritchard, Derek Sanderson Jeter, The Decision: One Year Later, a Two-Week Hiatus, AK 47, and Tristan Thompson.

The highlight of today’s show though is the upcoming interview in the second half of Tim and Sid: Uncut with No. 4 selection in the NBA Draft, Canadian born, Tristan Thompson. Sid sounds pretty stoked to be talking with the kid and has already been thinking of some questions. One is particular is: “Honestly, you declare (for the draft), what’s the best case scenario?” They also briefly discuss Cory Joseph and the fact that he was selected by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round. “Do you think he survives Gregg Popovich?”, asks Sid. Tim believes that Joseph’s basketball IQ is what helped him get drafted and is what will help him get along and produce for Coach Pop. We’ll get to highlights from the Thompson interview later on in the review.


The Yao Ming Song

First off, I’d advise you to listen to this section of the show on podcast. During the above song, Bronsteter had Hainser periodically say “Is Retired!”. It’s a hilarious part of the show that is not to be missed. “Fuck, you’re a regular Phil Jackson back there aren’t ya.”, Seixeiro said to Bronsteter. But back to Yao, it appears that the 31 year old centre has decided to hang up his sneakers, “31 in September, but his feet are 62.”, said Sid. It sounds sad, but it’s true – injuries seemed to push Yao to retirement and many people who follow the NBA can’t be too shocked because the 7 FT 6″ big man has been battling problems with his left foot for several years now. Tim goes on to say that he believes Yao’s “crowning moment” was during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. If you remember correctly, that was the same year he had surgery on his foot, but vowed to still play for his country. He would not be stopped; from an international marketing standpoint, he had lots of pressure from China. Whether Yao will ever admit it or not, many of his decisions were led or determined by his home country and I truly believe at times he felt like he had the weight of China on his shoulders.

At this stage, the guys chat a little about Yao’s wife and how he met her and Tim reads out a section from Yao’s Wikipedia page, “Yao is married to Ye Li, a women’s basketball player for China. He met her when he was 17 years old. Ye was not fond of Yao at first, but finally accepted him after he gave her the team pins he had collected during the 2000 Summer Olympics. She is the only woman he’s ever dated.” The boys have a good chuckle about the pins story and Sid cries out, “Fuck you Miss Texas with your ring in the mail. You don’t know what love is all about.” Other areas discussed on Yao include: He led Forbes list for income and popularity for 6 straight years, China may demand Yao to breed to make more basketball players, he bought his old team – the Shanghai Sharks, the myth that his parents were asked to have intercourse – Yao being the product, and finally, the high fives between his parents, himself, and his agent has to be one of the funniest things ever witnessed on the NBA draft night. Please see blurry photo below and click here for the full video.

250 vs. 300 & 400
Micallef also brought up the fact that today’s show was #251 for the Tim and Sid: Uncut radio show/podcast. I’ve been harping on this fact all week but it seems no one at theScore besides Tim and Sid really cared. Bronsteter didn’t think that it really mattered because it seems that 300 and 400 are more important to him. I kind of disagree though because 250 is half of 500 and many show productions don’t even make it to 200. Either way, congrats Tim and Sid. Tim also brings up the fact that they’ll be on a two week break coming Monday; during that time, they’ll be airing 2 weeks worth of BEST OF shows. Don’t miss it!

1980’s T.V Show Themes
Before Rapid Fire, the boys take a little trip down memory lane. I tweeted to them that Alan Thicke only had 166 episodes with Growing Pains and they should be proud because they’ve destroyed him in totals. Sid starts singing the Growing Pains theme song and both guys believe that all those television themes from the 80’s were terribly cheesy. From here, they go into the Family Ties theme and Tim pretty much sings the entire track.

Other tidbits from the t.v. show remembrance include: You should hide buffets from Tina Yothers, Mallory from Family Ties could get it, Tom Hanks played Uncle Ned and was creepy as fuck, and “Tits MaGee” Brewster, from Punky Brewster is hot, “Do you know how much 13 year old semen was spilt over Punky Brewster?”, cried Sid. “Hold on, hold on! When she grew up!”, replied Tim.

Interesting Facts From THE BIG E, Eric Cohen
Rob Pizzo is currently in Montreal for his brother’s Bachelor Party. Dead or Alive? We don’t know. However, the guys brought in broadcaster for theScore, Eric Cohen. Cohen did a solid job with update but he had his own little twist; asking the guys questions, it kind of sounded like Rapid Fire.
1. Jason Goodwin has filed a claim against the PGA Tour for infringing upon his civil rights. He attended a PGA event wearing a full-sized tiger costume to support his favorite player, but after Tiger Woods’ playing partner Angel Cabrera complained to rules officials, Goodwin was promptly ejected. Now he’s taking the PGA to court and looking to get paid. I hope this is a big fail on his part – the courts would be foolish to let this douche get any money.
2. It looks like Roy Williams will get his ring back from Miss Texas, Brooke Daniels, after she turned down his engagement proposal and still kept the ring. It was found at her father’s house after insurance agents got involved.
3. For personal reasons, the BIG E is not happy that employees of theScore have to pay $200 a month to park at work. However, after finding out that the Four Seasons in Yorkville are offering parking spots at a pricetag of $100,000 per year, he’s kind of okay with it now. What the hell!

Tristan Thompson Joins Tim and Sid: Uncut

The ANTHEMKardinal Offishall

Today’s guest in during the second half of the show is Brampton, Ontario native Tristan Thompson. Thompson was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers at the No. 4 spot in this year’s NBA draft. Before the boys get into the meat of the interview, they ask Tristan about the update that Cohen presented earlier regarding parking that costs $100,000. Tristan starts laughing and says that it’s not in his budget; he hasn’t even found a place to live yet. As of right now, he’s going to wait until the lockout is over. God knows when that will happen. Tim starts the interview by bringing up the story about Tristan’s mother and her vision. Apparently, she had a vision that Tristan would one day play for Cleveland – she said she saw him in a Cavaliers jersey. “So when your mom said you’re going fourth, you said you’re crazy?”, asked Tim jokingly. Tristan said that he didn’t call her crazy but realized that if her vision was true, he better get to work, especially if he wants to battle for a starting spot on the roster. Sid chimes in then and asks Tristan, “When you declared (NBA Draft), what would have made you happy at that moment?” If anything, Tristan said he believed that he could go anywhere in the Top 8 or Top 10.  But when the deadline for taking your name out of the draft passed, he started getting word that he could be picked anywhere in the Top 5. It was then that he believed he could go high in the draft. Discussion then flows into the night of the draft and Tim asks Tristan what it was like going up to meet David Stern when his name was called. “First off, my mom is a keeper.” (she did predict right) and second, he was happy that all the work had paid off. After 20 years of putting in time and trying to achieve his goal, his dream finally came true. Tristan also discussed the upcoming lockout and called it a “double-edged sword”. While he’s excited and eager to officially start his NBA career, this lockout gives him the opportunity to go back to school and continue working on his degree. When he’s not in school, he’s practicing with fellow Canadian Cory Joseph, John Lucas, and several NBA players. And speaking of Joseph, Tristan chimes in that he’s very happy that his Texas teammate was selected in the first round. He believes that Cory and Gregg Popovich will get along because Cory is mentally strong and can succeed under the guidance of a Player’s Coach. Sid goes on to ask Tristan if he has any particular goals right now? According to Tristan, the goals for him right now are to keep getting better, help the team get W’s when the season starts, and prove people that didn’t agree with him going at No. 4 spot wrong. He also is working hard on his free-throw; Thompson doesn’t have the greatest percentage from the charity stripe but understands that in his position – banging the boards, etc – he’ll be at the line often and he understands the importance of him hitting those freebies.

Tim and Sid then get into the part of the interview that I was looking forward to listening too. Sid asks Tristan whether or not he still feels like he wants to play for and represent Canada, now that’s he’s been selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tristan says that he’s completely willing to represent our country and looking forward to wearing the Red and White for Coach Tree Rollins. Tristan goes on to say that’s he’s committed to the program and feels he could be the leader of Team Canada, sort of how Steve Nash was once the poster boy for the program. From the sounds of it, Tristan believes that Team Canada could have international success in the future. Great interview guys – glad to hear him talk about the NBA and his commitment to Canada Basketball.

Things We Learned This Week
1. I (Bronsteter) have no future when it comes to being an on-air personality.
2. Our listenters recognize Hainser in public.
3. 12 Grain Bagels and Double Chocolate Donuts are similar health-wise.
4. Poison, This Is How We Do It, and Return Of The Mack are big chunes.
5. Carleton could afford to be better communicators.
6. George Laraque is a terrible goalie.
7. Tim and Sid: Uncut is not the type of show that stereotypes people.

Rapid Fire
Unfortunately, Bronsteter didn’t have a whole lot of time for Rapid Fire, but he did manage to squeeze out a couple of great CUT or UNCUT questions before time ran out.
– First one was submitted by a Tim and Sidizen, @BOKNOWSPORTS. Wearing a tie on your head when drunk at a wedding. CUT or UNCUT? I think this is CUT unless you’re a douche or like being the centre of attention. I think it’s a fad that has passed.
– Live tweeting from a concert. CUT or UNCUT? I’m going to say UNCUT. Twitter is news nowadays and for example, I was at the Soundgarden concert last week and I sent my friend updates periodically from the show.
– Synthetic Bacon Bits. CUT or UNCUT? You want me to answer this? It’s completely CUT.
Renting Golf Clubs. CUT or UNCUT? UNCUT. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. I was in Florida one time and randomly decided to go golfing. What else was I going to use?
– Wearing a long sleeve shirt with shorts. CUT or UNCUT? This is UNCUT. You might need a long sleeve during those colder, breezy days.
– Wearing knock-off Designer Shoes. CUT or UNCUT? I don’t think I really care so I’ll say UNCUT. If they want to wear them, go ahead. If a guy complains about that, he’s got an issue because he’s got a vagine.

Most random show in a while. There was a little bit of everything….Basketball, 80’s TV shows, Yao Ming, Chinese Birthing Laws, Uncle Ned, and the list goes on – lots of sports and edu-tainment. I was glad the boys discussed Yao Ming and his upcoming retirement. I liked watching the guy play and they gave him a proper, but funny, adios. Eric Cohen came through with a solid Update. He brought forth some interesting stories and I would have no problem with him stepping in from time to time when Pizzo is absent. Highlight of today’s show was the interview with Tristan Thompson. Great to hear the kid talk and I look forward to watching him play in the future. I was especially happy to hear about his commitment to the Canada Basketball program and if anything, I think he could be the one to lead Canada back to the Olympics. Solid show today boys  – seeing as it’s your last one for two weeks 10/10.

Bigger Chune? “Return Of The Mack” or “This Is How We Do It”

At the beginning of the second segment, Bronsteter usually plays a tune from back in the day that might have relevance to the upcoming topic. On today’s Tim and Sid: Uncut, the song of choice was Mark Morrison’s Return of the Mack. According to Tim, Sid apparently dances to this song anytime he hears it. “That’s a big tune man.”, cried Sid. Micallef decides to play devil’s advocate and asks the question:

What’s the bigger tune. Mark Morrison’s “Return of the Mack” or Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It”?

Bronsteter begins to play This Is How We Do It and “Micallef is looking like a fly girl on Living Colour right now.”, said Seixeiro. A debate pretty much begins among the boys and they throw out the question to Tim and Sidizens. Unfortunately, 15 minutes doesn’t give enough time to really get a correct response as the votes from Team Live seem to be split down the middle. So what  song do you think is a bigger chune?

* This question has obviously struck a cord with listeners because my email was flooded this evening with suggestions. I figured I would add a few of them below and all of us can take a walk down memory lane. Fuck, I forgot about some of this stuff.

FIBA U19 World Championships & Jonas Valanciunas Update

“You told me your game is a little like Chris Bosh who used to play for the Toronto Raptors. How is it like Chris Bosh?”

“I don’t know, I’m, I have not…not so strong body. So I don’t know…I can move fast…” – Jonas Valanciunas

Good afternoon Tim and Sidizens! While I understand Jonas most likely dissed Chris Bosh inadvertently in his response above, I just love the guy for producing unintentional humour – that’s something you can’t teach a player. If you’ve paid any attention or listened to Tim and Sid: Uncut over the last couple of weeks, you’re fully aware that the Toronto Raptors No. 5 selection in this year’s draft, Jonas Valanciunas, has been a topic of interest at times. Even Micallef has tweeted periodically about the kid, giving updates to his 12,000 + followers on how well Valanciunas has been playing in the FIBA U19 World Championships. Since then, he’s had a few games under his belt in attempt to lead Lithuania to a U-19 FIBA World Championship. So to help those looking for information on how he’s doing, I’ve bunched together all his stats and tournament break down into one area. (stats and photos courtesy of FIBA.COM & Eurobasket)

Thursday June 30
vs. Croatia              19 PTS, 13 REB, 5 BLK.

Friday July 1

vs. Korea                 25 PTS, 17 REB, 2 BLK.

Saturday July 2
vs. Canada                19 PTS, 9 REB, 4 BLK.

Monday July 4
vs. Serbia                18 PTS, 13 REB, 3 BLK.

Tuesday July 5

vs. U.S.A                 30 PTS, 15 REB, 4 BLK.

Wednesday July 6
vs. Egypt                      17 PTS, 13 REB, 3 BLK.

Valanciunas’ stats are also very impressive for the 2011 FIBA tourament as a whole among all players including guards, forwards, and centres. Big V. has been an integral part of the Lithuanian team and they currently sit in 2nd place with 10 pts., 1 pt. behind the 1st place United States.

2nd Tournament Scoring Average: 20.7 PPG.
1st Total Points: 127
3rd Field-Goal Percentage: 58.7 %
4th Free-Throw Percentage 83.3 %
(I should note that Jonas has taken the most free-throws (35) of the top 20 players in this category)
1st Rebounds Per Game 13.3 REB.
1st Blocks Per Game 3.5
1st Double-Doubles 5

Again, these are just statistics, information, and numbers that you can digest. If you’re a fan of the Raptors, there’s nothing wrong with keeping up-to-date on how this guy is performing. So no need to tell Uncle Timmy to #calmdown.

Remember to tune in today to a new Tim and Sid: Uncut at 4PM ET on SIRIUS Radio Channel 158. The guys are back from their extended vacation and should have lots to talk about in the world of sports. Until then, take care.
