Topic 1: Things we like to get at ball games: fly balls,
popcorn, a glimpse of some sad couple on the kiss prompter, etc.
Not included in this list are bloody noses and fights with guys on
steroids. Jennifer Bueno got more than her fair share of action in
the Rangers-Athletics this past Monday. What should happen to this
guy, Frank Fransisco, the man who threw the chair?
Baker: She’s a trash talker, tough luck.
Bondy: You know, maybe the MLB should ban steroids. It looked
like this guy had some roid-rage.
Baker: Yeah, definitely. But he’s trained to throw stuff. He
probably can’t tell the difference between a ball and a chair.
Bondy: He needs to be suspended for the remainder of this season
and at least half of next year.
Baker: Maybe some anger management classes?
Topic 2: Somewhere out there (Oklahoma, Miami and others),
someone decided to allow college athletes to gain course credit for
playing football. What moron would make such a decision and how is
the NCAA allowing this to go on?
Bondy: At this rate, we might as well just start paying
Baker: Football players work hard between games and practice,
plus they bring in more money for universities than anything else.
Give them whatever they want.
Bondy: They already get free schooling and special privileges.
Football players, while in college, should be considered students
first, like the rest of us. As students, we don’t get free
Baker: I think we should start paying athletes to come here.
Bondy: That’s brilliant Paul.
Topic 3: Q and A Lightning Round
Bondy: Minnesota at CSU this Saturday. Final score?
Baker: 28-24 CSU
Baker: Same question.
Bondy: 37-14 Minnesota
Bondy: Best fantasy football player after week 1?
Baker: Little man Quentin Griffith.
Baker: Better burrito? Big City or Chipotle?
Bondy: Nothing beats potatoes in a burrito.
Bondy: Is cheerleading a sport?
Baker: Maybe to George Bush.
Topic 4: Facing another Top-25 football team will present plenty
of challenges for the CSU football team this weekend. CSU running
backs are averaging 46 yards per game. The run defense is allowing
opponents 288 yards per game. If you played for CSU, which side of
the running game would you rather be on?
Baker: I’d be on defense because defense wins championships and
they get to hit people.
Bondy: I’d rather be a running back because they have the ball
and the control. Plus, what championships are we talking about?
Baker: Both sides are going to have to pick it up in order to
make my predictions right.
Bondy: Your predictions are terrible. By the way, good call on
the hockey lockout. Didn’t you say they would reach an
Baker: Anyways, put me in there, I’ll play some defense.
Bondy: It might be better to sit the bench than choosing between
those two options.
Closing statements and words to the wise:
Bondy and Baker: Get out to the game this weekend. Be loud, have
a good time and cheer on the Rams.
