The Return of Tim and Sid: Uncut…Bruce Smith Is Pumped & “It’s About Today” So Let’s Get Them Trending #TimandSid

It’s been a long two weeks for many listeners of Tim and Sid: Uncut, but the guys return today, Tuesday September 6th, and will most likely come out of the gates with guns a blazin’. In order to get the word out there, let’s try and get the show trending on twitter by adding the hashtag #timandsid to all of our tweets. Some examples to get you going:

  • Heading to the restaurant to propose to my girlfriend #timandsid
  • In the middle of a tornado but I can’t wait for this afternoon #timandsid
  • About to fly overseas to help build a school in Africa #timandsid
  • I hate to say this @Jasmine, but I think it’s time to break up #timandsid
  • Just got out of surgery; happy to head home #timandsid

Thanks again TimandSid-izens for all the support – you guys really are the best listeners out there. Same place, same time #timandsid. And as Sid is famous for saying, “It’s About Today!…It’s About Today!”

The World of Tim and Sid: Uncut: Check Out Aaron Bronsteter on Spinal Tap Out!

While Tim and Sid: Uncut is currently taking a short hiatus, I figured this would be a good time to make all the TimandSid-izens out there aware, that our very own Aaron Bronsteter has begun writing on one of theScore‘s popular blogs, Spinal Tap Out – an informative blog that allows readers to get all their up-to-date news from the world of MMA.

If you’ve listened to any shows of Tim and Sid: Uncut where the topic of MMA is brought up, you know that Bronsteter is quite knowledgeable in this area and always adds some great insight/points to the conversation. And this past Friday, Aaron added his very first posting on Spinal Tap Out in anticipation for yesterday’s UFC 134.

So for true fans of MMA or new fans of the UFC, I’d advise keeping an eye out for Bronsteter’s postings from time to time. This weekend alone, Aaron treated us to to his pre-fight picks (Beat The Odds: UFC 134), live results and chats, and post-fight analysis. Follow him on twitter @aarbron

Greg Sansone’s Challenge, Booster Juice, and “Mary, Mary, Why You Buggin?”

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:

Kevin Kolb
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.

Kyle Orton
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.”

Tim Tebow
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.

Albert Haynesworth
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.

Reggie Bush

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 

Rapid Fire
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. 

Pizzo Remembers 1996

Rob Pizzo is winning tweet of the day so far by the Tim and Sid: Uncut crew with the following:

“Jagr may go back to Pittsburgh? Smyth wants to return to Edmonton? How the hell did I wake up this morning in 1996?”Rob Pizzo

If you haven’t heard, it was announced Monday that Jaromir Jagr, Czech hockey player, was keen on returning to the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League. The 39-year old spent 11 seasons with the Penguins before bouncing around the league and last playing in the NHL for the New York Rangers. Since then (’08-’09), Jagr has been playing in the KHL for the Avangard Omsk where he finished this season with 50 points in 49 games.

In other semi-retro news, Los Angeles Kings’ Ryan Smyth, has requested to be traded back to the Edmonton Oilers. Smyth spent 11 season with the Oilers from ’95-’07, until he was traded to the New York Islanders. Since then, the hard-nosed winger has played with the Colorado Avalanche and the Kings. And to be honest, the guy never wanted to leave Edmonton in the first place.

 
I’m just waiting to hear that Peter Forsberg wants back…..oh wait, he did that and failed. It should be an entertaining afternoon on Tim and Sid: Uncut today. Remember to tune into the Score Radio on SIRIUS Channel 158.

Manitoba Essensas & Tout Telephones

“Cheveldayoff needs to find a new bench boss. The City of Vancouver is still at a loss, and will this new Tout segment, be foss? I’m frightened too. Shout-out John Trottier, now…”

Good Motherf’n Friday Tim and Sidizens. First off, I’m sorry for the strange times of postings last week but I was working on an event during the days and nights and finding time to update the site was pretty hard – but I can handle 18 hr. work days, especially when it involves all of you guys.

Well, as mentioned above, it’s Friday and it’s also Tim’s last show alone before Sid comes back next week. It was great to have Seixeiro call-in on Thursday for a rant, but according to Tim, “He’s back on the couch. Black socks and sandels no doubt.” But have no fear, Bronsteter and Noon were there and ready to help put off a great show. Items for our edu-tainment this afternoon included: Rory McIlroy, Craig McTavish, Timsidizen (I made the topics), Dwayne Casey, The Teardown and Cleanup, Kevin Cheveldayoff, and Youuuuuuuu! (Soldier Boy style)

Still in the introduction segment, Tim begins to discuss how he’s “starting to get depressed.” And who could blame the guy – this week brought the end of the NBA and NHL playoffs. There’s no more hockey, basketball is done for the season (with a possible lockout), and the only big name sport on the go is baseball right now. I know the CFL is just starting, but come on, what we witnessed in both playoffs will be hard to live up to; maybe impossible. To tie it all up in a bow though, Bronsteter plays a sports montage of highlights from the NBA and NHL playoffs with R.E.M’s It’s the End of the World As We Know It playing in the background. This isn’t the montage, but the video for the song. 

15 Seconds of Fame and Telephone Tout
Well, a new possible segment on Tim and Sid: Uncut, Tout Telephones. In honour of Bronsteter’s touting, the boys came up with an idea to allow listeners to call in and sound off in 15 seconds or less on any topic they choose. Tim said he was a little hesitant at first, not knowing to expect, and he’s scared that this segment could be just average. Noon had a good response though to Tim’s “average” comment, “It’s going to be good or bad, because one thing I do know is that our fans are not average.” Since Tim announced the new segment on twitter, I was pretty excited to make my first call into the show and lucky for me, I was batting lead-off.

“Just like my Grandma Marie, LeBron James went to Miami to die.”

I got horns, that’s all that mattered….Apparently, I also earned a door #2 with my first on-air appearance. So should they ever do this again in the future, which I kind of doubt, I’ll call in for sure. Other Tout Telephone callers included:
JRoc23 in Toronto: “I’m just happy that somebody from Vancouver scored on the road.”
Guttz: “LeBron and Luongo choke more than Sasha Grey.”
It appears that the segment is a hit with the listeners because the phones were lit up like a Christmas Tree. But ultimately, I’m not sure how long this will last – it’s fun, but people really need to come with great stuff for it to work properly.

Coaching Talk: NHL and NBA
Tim and the boys take a break from the Touts and start discussing a little bit about the vacant Raptors and Winnipeg head coaching positions that are currently up for grabs. According to Tim, Marc Stein has released some news that Dwayne Casey could be hired as soon as next week for the head coaching job in Toronto. Tim says that he’s happy of the work that Casey did on LeBron in the NBA playoffs, but there’s hesitation as the guy (Casey) was up for the job in 2003 and failed. And it’s hard validating a hiring when you turned that person down already in the past. While it’s not official, rumours show that Casey and Lawrence Frank are the front runners and with the draft coming up shortly, a coach should be named soon.

In regards to the NHL and the Winnipeg _________ (match game coming), it appears that Kirk Muller has been interviewed for the head coaching position. Other candidates include: Craig Ramsay, Craig MacTavish, Claude Noel, and Mike Haviland.

Eventually, Bronsteter takes some more Tout Telephone calls and people start rifiling them off. The funnier one of the lot included the call from Daniel in Port Credit. The boy just rambled and rambled some more – not the rules of the segment Danny. Anyways, in mid-sentence, Bronsteter cut him off. Hey, his 15 seconds were up. At the end of the tout calls, it seemed most people enjoyed it, Bronsteter gave it a 9/10 and hey, I look forward to the next one.

Interesting Facts From Pizzo’s Updates
Before Pizzo started throwing out some updates, the guys start talking about funny t-shirts, especially ones seen with the quote “Sedin Sisters: 2 Girls, No Cup”. A pretty funny shirt – you can actually buy them here.

1. Rory McIlroy just finished the best U.S. Open round in history. Rather than stay on the course and work on his game, the dude is going to the theatres to watch Hangover 2. Amazing.
2. Lionel Messi recently got busted for attending a “sex and alcohol” party in Argentina. When word got out, his excuse was that he danced and played playstation all night long.
3. Raheem Brock just got arrested Friday morning for Dining and Dashing. The Seahawk’s Defensive End skipped out on a $27 tab. Not only was he caught, but he also resisted arrest. What a dick.

Winnipeg ___________ and Kevin Cheveldayoff
Finally, after being teased all week, the Russian Tim Cheveldae interview on Tim and Sid: Uncut took place. With most of the talk surrounding the return to Winnipeg, it was great of Bronsteter to snag the guy for a quick chat with Tim. “This is like a baptism by fire for you, isn’t it?”, asked Micallef. From the sounds of it, Cheveldayoff is pretty excited for the upcoming season. According to the new GM, there’s lot of work to be done, in a short period of time.The relocation of the franchise is an interesting aspect to becoming a new GM, but everyone knows the fans are there and it’s up to him and the rest of the team to put an A+ product on the ice. Micallef went on to ask more about his feelings and the fact that the team will have new people in the background (i.e. equipment workers, staff, etc.). Cheveldayoff went on to say that while it’s a new city, a new GM, and new staff, it’s going to be all positive for the team. Walking in to a hockey crazed market, with people supporting the team, and having an ownership that is firmly committed to winning can only spell positives for the players. It’s a great culture for them to be in – one that is completely different than what they’ve expereinced in Atlanta.

Discussion then flows into the possible candidates for the head coaching position. The only name Cheveldayoff mentions is Craig Ramsay, but he does go on to say that they are interviewing several people and each one of them has many positives – it’ll be a hard decision. Cheveldayoff goes on to discuss how great the ownership and the City of Winnipeg is. He can’t wait to work in the city, be a caretaker of the sport, and help Winnipeg have a successful franchise. The dude sounds real positive and win or lose next season, you got to respect that. To finish off the interview, Tim does steer the conversation to the possilbe naming of the team. Tim asks if we could maybe have a hint, but Kevin flat out says he can’t do that. All that he would let us know is that there’s lots of discussion on possible names/logos and that hopefully it comes out soon. Tim suggests to Kevin to tell the powers that be that a good option might be the Manitoba/Winnipeg Essenas.

Once the interview is over, the guys get into some more discussion on the possible name of the new franchise. Tim is sold that it begins with Manitoba and some suggestions for Winnipeg _______ include: Moose, Planes, Revenge, Falcons, and Legs. Bronsteter makes a good point here though that “No matter what name is chosen, no one will be satisfied.”

What We Learned This Week!
– Bruins’ fans in the 70’s were allowed to jump on airplane wings.
– Cliff Ronning kicks ass in NHL ‘94.
– Marc Crawford is a big basketball fan.
– Hainser claims he ran the Grouse Grind.
– We learned that Tim’s Rant is once again a jinx.
– Sid’s Statute is not full proof.
– Chris Broussard and LeBron James might not be as close as originally thought.
– Vancouver riots were close to Battle L.A.
– The hardest thing we learned this week is that tomorrow all of our problems will still exist.

Rapid Fire
Bronsteter didn’t have a lot of time for Rapid Fire but our boy was still able to get out a couple of great questions.
– What is your favourite canned beverage? I’m picking 3 and it depends on when I’m having it. Beer, Tonic Water, and Gingerale.
– What’s the longest amount of time you’d watch one event for? Tim says that it depends on how many beers he’ll have. I would have to agree with Tim. I think if the games exciting, I could stay all evening.

A completely random Friday afternoon show by Tim, Noon, and Bronsteter. Besides the interview with Kevin Cheveldayoff, everything seemed up in the air. But hey, it’s Friday, and that’s the best time to do it. First off, I liked the Tout Telephones. I wouldn’t rank it as high as 9/10, but I would give it a solid 8. I will say that Bronsteter puts trust in his listeners. On the phone before he put me on air, I asked if he wanted to hear what I had to say beforehand. He said that he trusted me; good thing I didn’t scream out some crazy shit. Pizzo had a great update session and the interview with Cheveldayoff was solid. I’m glad that Tim tried to get a name for the franchise – A for effort. For some reason, Friday’s episode seemd to fly by; it could have been because it was fucking hilarious! Great show, way to end off the week. 9.5/10.

Sir Timothy Micallef, Poet

Our boy Timmy has dropped the “Woooo“, but picked up some great lyrical rhymes. I’ve noticed lately that he’s taken special care in coming up with some great intros. before he tells Famous to “Run that Bitch….“:

“The Stanley Cup lies in the hands of Vezina Nominees, LeBron James contracts some sort of Asphyxiation Disease, and Chris Bosh gets to the locker room on his knees. Run, Run that Bitch.”

“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.”

“Balsillie’s back in the clear, Roberto Luongo will have to persevere, and tonight is the biggest game in the Chosen One’s career. Believe that. Famous is an artist who made a song for us.”

“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.

The reason I’m bringing this up is because during today’s show, Tim read out an email that the boys received from Craig in Ottawa. Craig suggested that some of topics to be discussed on the show should be sent out on Twitter – Tim and Sidizens could then come up with their own rhymes. From there, people can weigh in on the better ones, throw out the ones that are foss, and maybe add a different spin to the introductions. Tim thought the idea was pretty sweet……and to be honest, the guys might not even have to send the topics out through Twitter – all it takes is a look on theScore website, check out some of the headlines, and bam! You got yourself a Haiku/Limerick 😉 I look forward to hearing what some people come up with.

Does Sid Holiday Tweet?

Who remembers the little hissy fit that Tim put on early last week when Noon jokingly called him out for using Twitter during his vacation? We all know that Noon was only being sarcastic and as he put it, “being a smart ass”. Well, now that Sid is on vacation fixing his roof, how long is it before he tweets during his holiday break?

Who cares if he does or not, but I’m sure he’ll get a ribbing either way from the guys when he gets back in the booth.

#SidDontTweetonVacation?
