Damn. Just when you think its safe to enjoy a few Black and Milds, a blue margarita or maybe a bucket of Bud Light's at Kay's. Big time Ticket stuff has to go down, real fast.
As far as we know TC is sitting in the airport, waiting for a flight to Pensacola. Or maybe he already boarded. His Twitter handle says as much, and a desperate call to the mother ship was not answered by the familiar sweet voice of Thomas Charles Fleming. Austin picks up instead, sweet clean Austin. Norm's intern from August to December. Not TC. Not the kid we just hugged drunkenly at Ticket Stock.
A side note to this all. There will be many. This is just knee jerk reaction shit to what is happening. Expect more posts on this later. But for now, TC will no longer run the Top Ten. Or be at the station weeknights at all, and that is cause for quiver lip confusion for all of us (he does have 2 more weeks I guess). This is a real kick in the dick.
And these things always happen fast. So fast. Faster than that which allows recognition, processing or even denial. TC has accepted a position at WBSR 1450 AM/101.1 FM, the local ESPN station. Pensacola. Guys, we are at as much of a loss as you are. No idea why he would go there, no knowledge of any family there. No knowledge of position details, sure they are better than what he had here.
So much more to say. But its Friday night, were drunk and now all we want to do is lay down and fall asleep.
