Yeah, B and B are entertaining, nevertheless, they are only really knowledgeable about basketball. I still listen on the way home everyday for the funny segments and the calls. 1000 has always sucked IMO. The Score is way better; pretty lean right now though. Either one of the stations would do well to bring in a good hockey guy to host a show. Hanley I like, wish he would talk about the Hawks more but he probably can't get a word in edge wise with that sack of **** Mulligan babbling about the Bears, even in the middle of ****ing July.

Bernstein knows baseball pretty well, IMO.

But yeah, both are way too obsessed with the NBA even though they acknowledge that it kind of sucks and isn't competitive with their whole 'basketball hell' thing.

Yeah, I'll give Bernsy that; I like his embrace of Sabremetrics.

Didn't see this is where the sports radio discussion started earlier. Wow, umm this should have been done so long ago. This guy thinks he is funny, but his jokes are just cheesy. I'm shocked that ESPN didn't just wack him when he got the DUI a couple years back.

I don't wish unemployment on anybody, so I wish him well..but Harry just doesn't fit with sports radio. Maybe an oldies station would fit him better?

I hate the Illini, but they are in now. Even with 3 straight losses. Playing for seed now

I'm told the Fire season opener isn't on tv by my cable provider. Go on Bigsoccer and find out otherwise.

Yay DirectTV.

Big reason I don't think I'll ever get that into the Fire/MLS is TV. I'm not gonna sit and watch a game in Spanish or on a subchannel not in HD.

The sad thing is they've made strides. Games in spanish are a step up from games not on tv.

Good news that NBC Sports Network picked up a ton of weekend games. I'm guessing if there was still a lockout this game would have made it on there. Surprised it didn't anyways

I'm sure their package only allows for a certain number and they'd rather not waste one on what's already a very crowded sports day.

They've got to worry about the basics like video and audio before expanding further. You look at NBC as being a certain quality and then realize they are very flawed.

IU wins at least a share of the Big Ten title, and can take it all home Tuesday.

Fire lose 4-0 to Galaxy. They played awful, poor lineup decisions and very few chances.

Garza to start the year on the DL, Samardzjia will be the opening day starter.

Baez homered yesterday and walked with the bases loaded in Cactus league action

Yes, its the most listened to afternoon sports talk show in the 2nd biggest media market in the country.

Gotcha, never listen to the Score due to the obvious biases they have. If I was a Sox fan though, probably would love the constant reinforcement/Cubs bashing that station has, though.

Actually from the little bit I listened, especially back when Epstein was brought on and had his pressers and whatnot, B & B were very positive and complimentary about the Cubs organization and finally joining "big boy baseball". Haven't listened much since or during last season but they were pretty on board with the Cubs finally building things the right way from the ground up and were very pro-Epstein.

they constantly suck the cubs organization's figurative wang on the score, so not sure why you're talking about sox bias....

If that's the case, then the few times I've listened must've been the only times their biases are clear as day. On multiple occasions, I've heard them in the span of a few minutes praise the Sox for essentially the very same thing that they're criticizing the Cubs for, and I know plenty of people that feel the same way about that station, too.

Granted, I'm fairly sure that most of that stuff has been morning, weekend, and pre/post-game time periods, so I can't speak specifically about B&B, but either they've done an abrupt 180 in the past year or two or I and several others have just so happened to listen at moments where they're accidentally homering it up.
