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.
