Official-Unofficial Daily review and everything else that is the Tim and Sid: Uncut Show/Podcast which is available daily from Monday – Friday at 4pm – 5pm (Eastern). They're dudes with a knack for Sports and Edu-tainment #REALTALK
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

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!”
There’s been a few questions directed as to when Tim and Sid: Uncut will return with brand new shows. While Micallef has said on air that the show won’t be going anywhere, there’s still a few TimandSid-izens out there who are unaware of what’s happening, especially since theScore Radio no longer exists. So don’t worry TimandSid-izens. Tim, Sid, Bronsteter, Noon, and Pizzo will all return on Tuesday September 6th for a brand new episode of Tim and Sid: Uncut.
There are still some ideas being thrown around on how we’ll consume our daily dose of edu-tainment, but from what I can gather, it will still be available at www.timandsid.com and will still be available for download on itunes. You don’t become the #1 sports show in the nation for nothing. So until then, enjoy the history lesson episodes provided by Professor Sharman and make to sure to keep an eye out for new shows starting next week.
True Hip Hop ain’t dying this morning and neither is Tim and Sid: Uncut.
As discussed in the previous entry, I was going to reflect on the history of Tim and Sid for Tim and Sidizens that listen to the Tim and Sid: Uncut radio show, especially for some of the new listeners. A little history lesson – Micallef and Seixeiro used to help host a television show called Score Tonight. According to Wikipedia, “it was the flagship news and highlights program that aired weeknights on the network.” The show involved weekly highlights, Cabbie on the Street, Gerry Dee, sports talk, and edu-tainment. If you’re unaware of the show, check out the promo videos used to advertise Score Tonight below. The boys teamed up with Grimace LUV and DAN-E-O and delivered some pure gold; lyrical masters who spit rhymes like it was nobody’s business.
And if you want to get a little taste of Score Tonight, check out some of the highlights below. In the first clip, Cabbie completely throws Tim and Sid under the bus by giving shout-outs to his Cabbie on the Street Fan Club. The conversation is pretty funny.
And in another clip, we get a little bit of Tim, Sid, and Cabbie doing the Ladies Man Edition or Sid’s Wet Dream of Plays of the Week. It’s interesting to note that you can’t say “Dick in a box” on air, but “Cock and a hen” is completely fine.
Remember to check out the BEST OFTim and Sid: Uncut episode this afternoon Tim and Sidizens on theScore Radio or SIRIUS Radio Channel 158 at 4PM ET. We are at the end of week 2 in the show’s hiatus; new episodes are on the horizon! Time to rejoice.
We’re almost there Tim and Sidizens – less than a week from now, Tim, Sid, Bronsteter, Noon, Pizzo….and the “sometimes” dependable Hainser will be back entertaining us five days a week from 4-5pm. In the meantime, during this slow period before the boys come back, expect a random blog here and there.
* Disclaimer: I’m just stating facts and presenting a listeners/viewers (the soon-to-be wife) opinion. And if it shatters my dream of ever working there, so be it. Names of hosts will not be released, unless you want to look them up yourself.
Last night prior to supper, MK (my better half) and I were channel surfing on the television trying to escape the heat when we stopped on theScore television channel. At that time the station was airing “Woodbine Racing Live on The Score”. This particular show allows viewers to catch thoroughbred horseracing from the Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto. While I’ve never watched the show before, I am familiar with it and aware that it’s on theScore’s program schedule. As I was about to flip the channel again, MK asked that I leave it on for a second because she wanted to watch the hosts for a second. I should note that MK doesn’t listen to the Tim and Sid: Uncut or watch sports, but like most people, she knows what she likes and doesn’t like. Some questions popped out of her mouth:
1. “Why is there horseracing on the sports channel?” 2. “These hosts are kind of boring. Who are they?” 3. “Does anyone watch this?” 4.“Where’s Tim and Sid?”
While I couldn’t answer all her questions, we had a pretty engaging discussion. MK met Tim and Sid several weeks ago at theScore so I think she feels a little bit of loyalty towards the two when she asked the last question but she did make some good points. She said she found them “highly entertaining, funny, very personable, easy to relate/talk to”, and felt like“they were guys we would hang out.” She finished her comments by saying “If Tim (Micallef) and Sid (Seixeiro) are some of the best broadcasters for theScore, why aren’t they on television?”
I went on to explain to her that Tim and Sid are on television at times for programs such as Court Surfing, 24 in 30, The Footy Show, etc. but it seems she couldn’t get over the fact that they weren’t doing a show together. From there, I grabbed the laptop and gave her a brief history lesson about Score Tonight, a show once hosted by Tim and Sid before it was axed in 2009. Up to this point, MK had never seen the show before but from the little bits she watched, she said it was highly entertaining and “better than what was on TV now.”
By this time, dinner was ready and MK and I stopped the discussion but it got me thinking…Why isn’t Tim and Sid: Uncut on television? Is there particular reason? 24 in 30 is a radio show/podcast that airs on the station at times. At first I thought maybe the topics or language used sometimes could be too risque for theScore to air but with Eastbound & Down airing uncensored, that theory was thrown out the window. Would anyone else be interested in seeing Tim and Sid: Uncut on television?
For me personally, I enjoyed Score Tonight…the sports informaiton came fast and furious, the highlights were great, discussions between the two was funny, and I always I had a “I can relate with these guys” attitude. While I understand Tim and Sidizens may never see Score Tonight on air again, why not the Tim and Sid: Uncut show? While 2009 is not far behind us, in the age of social media and computers, it could be considered a decade. – I didn’t know anyone on Twitter in 2009…and if you were, it wasn’t near as popular as it is now – Podcasts were somewhat new to me – Facebook hadn’t quite hit it’s peak – Mobile Apps were still being developed – And the list goes on…

Social Media has come a long way since 2009 and I feel as though the Tim and Sidizens Army around Canada, and the world for that matter, has only increased. Being the #1 Sports podcast in the nation doesn’t happen without support from the listeners and if you ask me, being able to listen and view (TV) Tim and Sid: Uncut would be an easy and welcomed transition. If you have your own booblehead, I’m pretty sure you should be televised on a regular basis.
I should note, these are only rants from a Tim and Sidizen. The absence of Tim and Sid: Uncut live gets the ol’ brain ticking and every now and then you’ll get one of these lengthy blog entries. I’m looking for some fillers until Tim and Sid: Uncut return so stay tuned for the next couple of entries as I reminisce and walk us down memory lane of Score Tonight, Tim and Sid, and theScore.
Last week, with the help of several Score employees, I was able to do a little play-by-play of the Score Summer Party. Besides the white wine, passed out camera operator, and patio weather, the highlight was the apparent dance-off between the producer of Tim and Sid: Uncut, Aaron Bronsteter and everyone’s favourite savant, Ryan “Hainser” Hains. At the time, I only had a couple of photos, but this afternoon, thanks to a Score employee (will remain silent unless they give me the go ahead to release their name), the video was dropped on my lap.
With Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” blaring through the speakers, Bronsteter gets the party started and Hainser joins in with some fierce fist pumps before Red Heat’s Cam Stewart reels him in. In particular, pay close attention to the end of the video when Hainser pulls a little “3-Belly Tap” move…Gold. Obviously, good times was had by all and this has to be reason #132 for why it would be cool to work at theScore. Enjoy Tim and Sidizens!
We are less than a week away from brand new Tim and Sid: Uncut episodes. Hang tight!
