In honor of the best sports talk show on radio (and television for that matter) I will give you a weekly update on what we learned this week. This idea came to us from the Dan Patrick Show as he always ask his crew (the Danettes) what they learned as they wrap up every show. On Friday's they play Arcade Fire and in my opinion it makes for a great start to the weekend. For the past couple of months we have had few people at work who have been on an email that answers the question what did you learn this week? Just like DP we use Arcade Fire as inspiration. Feel free to leave what you learned in the comments section.
Thus without further ado here is what we learned this week.
What the Coach learned....
What the RoomDawg Learned....
What did Dan learn this week?
I learned that the Thornton’s make some really cute kids. I had the pleasure of meeting the newest member of the family yesterday and young Connor is just as bad ass and cute as Avery is. In closing I learned that the Miami Dolphins are very much alive in their respective division. They may only be 3-4 on the season but have proven they can hang with footballs best (saints and colts) and all 3 of their W’s are in the division. They have a big test this weekend and can certainly use the win on a nationally televised 1 p.m. game against a AFC East powerhouse in the New England Patriots.
What did the Admiral learn this week?
I learned that Talladega is everything that Ricky Bobby hyped it to be and more. Hours of cornhole, wearing an onesie ghostbuster costume for 24 hrs, and falling out of a golf cart equals a good time for this guy. I learned that I have a lot of inner redneck in me and nothing brings it out more than being around fans of NASCAR. When is it acceptable to cheer for a human being to crash a car and be flipped upside down at speeds close to 200 mph. I learned that you can’t spell victory without VY. In fact a victory starts with a Vince and ends with Young. Vincent Young is the spark that Titans need this season. There is still no chance of playoffs but he will make it more enjoyable to watch. I love watching him scramble around the pocket, probably miss two open receivers, make three defenders miss, and then pick up a 3rd and 3 all on one play. I learned that dancing to a Miley Cryus song in an undershirt might come back to find you on the internet. Thank goodness I wasn’t at that party but in the library reading. I learned that I enjoy playing a good game of softball and I need to get in a league next year. Hopefully some good learnings this weekend in the Great Smokey mountains at Pigeon Forge. Maybe even an airbrushed sweatshirt or two will return.
What did BJ learn this week?
BJ is referencing the fact that he and the coach were on the team that took home the company's softball championship. I can only think of one tune to play.
We hope everyone haves a wonderful weekend and do not be afraid to let us know what you learned this week in our comments section.
