Wal-Mart has a lower acceptance rate than Harvard. An Egyptian columnist wants to sue Israel for the biblical plagues. Another weird Norway situation where a guy leaves his yacht, keys and all, in a harbor unattended for two years. Paul is afraid of the ocean in other news.
Craig Brownson, head coach Fort Bend Travis High School, joined The B-Straw and Pauly G Show to discuss his former players Aaron and Andrew Harrison who are playing for Kentucky in the NCAA tournament. He said you could tell right away there was something special about these two players. Brownson said it wasn’t too difficult to distinguish between the twins. He also discussed how well his former players seem to be adjusting and moving forward so far in the NCAA.
Tonight on the Road Trip, B-Straw and Pauly G journeyed to Gainesville, New York City. They started in Gainesville talking to Adam Reardon, ESPN 1230, about the Gators moving into the Final Four. Then they talked to John Jastremski in New York City about the Yankees and the Astros season opener. They stayed in New York and talked a bit more on Opening Day with Jerry Krasnick, ESPN.com baseball analyst.
Paul and Brien were minding their own business on remote when they came across a lady who was very much a fan of Rich Lord. They allowed her to come on air and express her love and hilarity ensued.
Tonight they kicked off talking about Colbert getting backlash over the comments he made in last night’s Highlight the Helpless segment. We decided to play another where Colbert talked about how the U.S. isn’t recruiting early enough because a Belgian soccer team signed an infant to play. In Great Britain a 7 foot tall man was allowed out of jail because of his height. Over in Sweden a guy got a McDonald’s receipt tattooed on his arm because he’s too good with the ladies. Finally there’s a liquor store discounting champagne in honor of the death of the Westboro Baptist founder.
Tonight The B-Straw and Pauly G Show took a Road Trip to Philadelphia and Memphis. First in Philadelphia they talked to Brian Haddad, WIP, to talk about the Eagles dropping DeSean Jackson due to alleged gang connections. Haddad doesn’t think he’ll be out of work long and hated to see him leave the team, but says the team must have felt strong about his off field issues to let him loose. Then they journeyed to Memphis to talk to David Jablonski, Dayton Daily News, to talk about Dayton’s Cinderella story so far. Jablonski says the odds may be against Dayton but stranger upsets have happened before.
Orlando Alzugaray, 640 Sports, joined The B-Straw and Pauly G Show to discuss the Chris Clemons signing. Alzugaray is not high on the new Texan. He says he might be good for competition but thinks it would be a bad idea for the Texans to start him. He also thinks the Texans should draft Clowney because having him with Watt would be a huge boost. He thinks they could go with Mack but Clowney would really be to their best advantage.
B-Straw and Pauly G like to end out their show with a nice batch of hater-aid. Tonight Paul ranted on his incident with Ozzie Guillen which lead to a run in with baseball writer Richard Justice at Minute Maid. Paul was reminded of this after being angered by an MLB critical tweet by Richard Justice, whom Paul doesn’t follow of course. Basically Paul loathes a lot of things about baseball.
