Being high is likely the only way to enjoy anything with Mike Adams.

Listening to Mike Adams would instantly eliminate any pleasure one was deriving previously. For that matter, so would Gresh, Sheppard and Eddie A.

It might make Ted Sarandis entertaining, however.

I love all the hate for Teddy. Is there a more condescending asshat on radio today? Even Gresh doesn't annoy me as much as that clown.

I can't take Adams for long stretches, but he is one of the quickest guys out there. I had a friend in the Red Sox press booth who was there when the Ted Williams frozen head story first came out. He said that immediately upon hearing it Adams turned to the rest of the media and said, "There's no cryogenics in baseball."

Yikes, what's your beef with DA? He's one of, if not the best that station has to offer IMO.

Different tastes I guess. Other than F&M I can't listen to anyone on that station (other than Flynn, Gino and Gil and Goucher and Beers)

I'll never forget when BC made another one of their quick exits from the tourney, he actually advocated that "neutral" fans be banned from the building because they were rooting for the underdog (not BC) and ruining everything and it was unfair to the Eagles. I'm serious.

I get people being annoyed by DA. He's a little too Jim Rome at times in his cadence. Dramatic pause.

Also, enough with the sound effects. I remember playing Nintendo in 1988 too, Damon.

Yeah, he's so out of touch that he needs to be punched in the throat. Like when he called for fans watching the world cup soccer games at home to phone ABC and complain about the sound those vuvuzelas were making that the fans in attendance were blowing during the matches. Have you ever seen a real soccer match Ted? I hate the sport yet even I knew the crowds make a lot of noise, blow horns, and sing songs.

I guess I can see it. To me though, he bridges that gap between super serious sports guy that knows what he's talking about but is so dull that you can't stand listening to him, and the crazy over the top guys who are just looking for ratings and to be "fun".

I think I'm also partial to him because I listen to him on the way home from Bruins games, so I associate him with hockey talk.

My TV was on NESN when I turned it on this morning, and I was lucky enough to catch Callahan saying that "men would be watching baseball tonight" while, evidently, women would be more interested in the opening of the Summer Olympics.

As a male that doesn't care at all about baseball, it was funny to hear him paint the difference as a gender thing instead of, y'know, a personal preference. It was also funny to hear a guy that allegedly covers sports for a living admit to being so apathetic about one of the larger events on the sports calendar.

I can't speak for all men or any women, but seriously, what is interesting about the opening ceremony, and what exactly is "sports"-like about it? I mean, I know the actual competition is sports, and I'll watch a lot of that, be a parade and fashion show?

No thanks.

Reminds me of when I was in college and a good number of female friends (and no male friends that I remember) used to go to the football games to watch the 1/2 time show.

I never got the opening ceremony thing either. Quite boring. Also, winter olympics > summer olympics. I can't get into the summer ones at all.

Callahan said something sexist, and doesn't care about international sports? I'm shocked, shocked!

I found a new passion in USA women's soccer. Alex Morgan is phenomenal.
