Did I hear on 1290 this morning that Joe Mack was fired? Wasn't he fired a year ago? Or did I miss what they said?

Yeah, he was fired a while ago. They might be making a joke about the phony Matt Leibl Twitter account

It was a joke. Matt spent yesterday celebrating a birthday that happened two days prior. They were making fun of him.

I'm not a fan of Matt Leibl anymore though, I have to say. He went from likable background/stats guy to arrogant know-it-all in the space of about 5 months.

The Big Show is so weird now. I still listen every day, but man there's a lot of uncomfortable stuff. Something mildly humorous will happen and they'll start in with a long round of over-the-top belly laughing that sounds terribly insincere much of the time - really forced "zaniness." I usually hear the first minutes of the show just before I get up every morning and every time Edmonds starts up with his "Hey its The Big Show...we do it everyday" in his droll voice lacking much in the way of energy my spirit just sags a little. lol...

Yeah, it's not good. Edmonds isn't great and the chemistry is terrible. It's bad enough listening to it - I can't imagine what it's like to be a part of it in the studio every morning for hour after hour...

BTW: I had it on for 10 minutes on the way to work this morning. Did anyone catch the terrible Macho Man impression by some caller? It was more Patchy the Pirate than Randy Savage. Then Ty from Labroquerie came on so I drove my car off the Midtown Bridge to avoid having to listen to his ****.

Ty is super annoying. Other than "oh yeah", couldn't understand a single thing Macho Man said.

Gregory needs to start calling more. He doesn't phone as much now.

Yeah, I wanted to tweet something like "Hey 1290 callers - how bout just saying your bit and getting the hell out?? Do we need a bad comedy routine or a Jim Rome clone take?? No we don't. #youaintfunny"

the callers who think they are entertainers suck. I lost count of the number of times Ty said "you know what" today in his "take" - which I actually sorta agreed with btw but it still sucked.

I have to admire you guys for sticking to (and repeating) the same complaints you've had since day one

Thanks! I'd hoped it might get better, but it's not...

Also: is the voice actress who's doing the vasectomy ads the same one who's "tried everything" to get her husband into bed in those other ads? I guess the ***** pills really worked!

I guess you don't know what you have until it's gone. Sigh. I never thought I'd say this but I miss Jay. IMO David Keam is still a jerk and I turn down the radio every time his ads come on no matter what station it's on.

well, they still apply.

Yeah, it is what it is. Like I say, I still listen every day because I like the local sports talk and every once in a while it's still pretty entertaining. But almost every day there will be at least a couple of moments on the show where I'm reminded of how much it's dropped and its a bummer...

I will say I much prefer Brian Munz as the RR fill in compared to his PBP abilities, not that I prefer him over RR. I think Rick dos a great job and has great chemistry with his interviewees.

Can't stand Edmonds deep cackle, something disturbing about it.

Time to start a petition to get Jay back on the Big Show?

I CAN NOT STAND Edmonds.

Speaking of the adverts on 1290, there's one for an organization about making workplaces accessible to the handicapped. Worthy cause no doubt...but the jingle is utterly terrible. Makes me cringe everytime I hear it...

The boys on the Big Show are kinda showing their true hockey knowledge this morning. Westwood is picking the Avalanche to win the Stanley Cup and Edmonds is picking the Ducks and one of his reasons is because they picked up Heatley.

Picking the Ducks isn't a bad idea. Even though Heatley has kind of sucked with the Wild, his playoff numbers were decent last year.

Yeah picking the Ducks isn't a bad idea in itself but I was more alluding to how Edmonds emphasised Heatley so much.

I noticed this morning he wrote the story in Freep about the downtown shooting. Didn't know he ventured away from sports.

He left the FP Sports department, then came back a few(?) months later for the FP News department.
