Anyone on this board can do that with the game log in front of them.

Amen to that . . .

I remember T&R reading his notes on air.. really organized.

Yea they may not be in the studio doing bits like Fred does, but I am sure Felger is pretty busy in the mornings before the show.

You're being too kind. Those two are not even remotely close to being hockey fans. I don't think they're fans of any sport, other than golf. They're just ****-stirrers.

You would think hockey is their favorite sport based on who plays it

I could be totally wrong, and please correct me if I am, but you strike me as a HUGE WEEI fan.

I am both. For the exception of the two midday crap shows my sports radio is completely satisfied with switching between stations and listening to what shows I prefer.

One example is I love Bertrand and Gasper on Saturdays and would rather throw myself out a window than to listen to Mustard and Johnson. Then on Sunday mornings I prefer Dale hosting the football show and again would find another window then listen to Gresh and his artificial voice.

Same here.

6-10. if its a fresh sports story on the table, I go WEEI. If its day 3 or 4 of a beaten topic, I go 98.5 for the bits and foolishness.

10-2. Pandora 90's Alternative Rock

2-6 Felger and Mazz unconditionally. Though Jack Edwards 850 guest appearances makes it worth a switch during commercials

Agreed on the 10-2. I will listen to Gresh and Zo during Football season whenever I have the time (they sure know their stuff), and occasionally during hockey season. Mut & Merloni I don't listen to much, but I'll flip over when they have Brad Marchand on. I like Jack and everything and will turn to hear him on the big show, but it's painfully clear that Ordway doesn't know the difference between a hockey puck and a urinal cake, as he tosses out some of the softest questions (much like D&C do with Ference and Brick) left and right that just scream "casual fan." Not that Gresh and Zo's hockey expertise is off the charts, either, but they're somewhat tolerable during hockey season. Although it's clear that outside of breaking down the X's and O's from the latest Pats game, or Bill's draft strategies, the quality of their content takes a dive.

I may be in the minority, but I think "Beatle" is underrated. Get a kick out of his Mazz impersonations every now and then (*Slow Mazz-like voice* "Hey Felgahhh, the Bruins should trade Krejci and get a snipahhh like Booorby Ryan.").

All he's doing is taking Mazz's "dumb Boston guy" bit and doing it himself.

I personally don't enjoy Bertrand as an actual radio personality as it seems his on-air persona (on the weekends anyway) is derived from Felger's.

I can't stand Marc Bertrand. He's a Felger puppet....and I like Felger for the most part.

I want to apologize to Rich Shirtenwhatever for grouping him into my T&R hate because my problems with that show clearly revolve around Fred because today was quite enjoyable.

I also don't like Bertrand and his whinny race card pulling co-host on Saturday. Both are a annoying.

I like Marc Bertrand a lot. He certainly has a face for radio. And Chris Gasper is an intelligent, thoughtful fellow as well.

I generally like Tony, but can't handle the heilium overdrive bit, or the lame, fish in a barrel Dopey Fan schtick. He should go back to reading rapid fire listener texts. Those bits were funny.

I listened to WEEI today for 10 minutes today and I determined Glenn Ordway knows more about hockey than Felger. Fact not opinion. It's a shame that Ordway and the rest of the station aren't allowed to talk hockey more often.
