Middle of the Week Quick Hits...

The Irony of Jake's New Position: Is it really a promotion? Well, I guess so. In fact, on paper (his resume that is) and with regards to his paycheck, moving from afternoon drive board-op to BaD producer is definitely an upgrade. However, we feel like Jake's daily on-air presence has been diminished, severely. He no longer sits in the chair of fun, no longer has control of the on-air flavor. He no longer can listen to his gestalt and reflexively fire off hilarious drops. He now lives in the small on-air nook that Gribble had established. Is he trying to carve out more space? Is there anymore space for him on air with Bob, Dan, Donny and the more present than ever Sean Bass? These are the thoughts of a P1 though. Like we said, this new position is a resume builder for him, its not a chance for him to sharpen his radio delivery. He has already done that. This new position is the CTO (thanks Plainsman for that acronym) playing chess, moving Jake into a position to make a big move. A move that will have big repercussions at the station.

Corby's Wallet Got Stolen at the SMU Game: Pretty funny really. The whole Courtney Madden segment was shut down by Corby's loss. Losing a wallet does really suck, pretty debilitating. Hearing Corby challenging Killer to a fight over the incident was cause for laughter.  Don't think this story is over yet, you can guarantee we will hear more about this tomorrow. Who the hell would have done that?

Ian Kinsler Is a Little Bitch: Can any big name Ranger just depart from this thing on good terms? Ham-bone, Kins and Young, all have left the team on ridiculously stupid, piss and moany' and semi awkward terms, respectively. Jon Daniels is a genius, and a large reason for the Ranger's two World Series appearances. Kins can suck it.

Rick Barnes got really old all of the sudden. 


  1. I felt badly for Corby, but common sense has to enter the equation somewhere. Just like when the Great Gordo was so upset that his laptop, recorder and other valuable items were stolen out of his truck. Guys, you don't leave valuables out in plain sight for any reason. Haven't you learned anything in your 43 years on earth? I hope they find Corby's wallet but I wouldn't hold my breath, poor guy.

  2. Just heard Junior announce that Corby's wallet was returned with all contents intact to the police department and he will get it back. Glad to hear it!

  3. I think Sean makes Sean more present than ever. He's not blind. He sees where Jake has been, where he's gone, and how he's got there and who's pushing him to where he'll eventually end up. Sean's been there as a full time employee much longer, has put in many more hours (paid and unpaid), and has basically bled for the station. He understands that his path is not one of least resistance, like Jake's (no knock on Jake, at all). He has to force his way to the fore and show them what he has to offer. And to show it on the big stage, not just for a few hours in the Sunday a.m.. I for one applaud Sean for doing so. I think Sean is a hard working, knowledgeable on air personality that deserves to go far in the business. But hey, he knows he neither has "pipes" nor will ever be mistaken for a matinee idol. Nothing has been or will be handed to him, he has and must earn every advance he makes. And I tip my Rangers cap to him for it.

  4. Some big time rumblings of big time doings at The Littlest of Ones going on over at MTC. Just fired up an hour ago. You have any skinny, FW?
