David James, Open Door Sports Consulting, joined The B-Straw and Pauly G Show to discuss who the Texans will draft. He said he saw it coming that the Texans would let Gary Kubiak go. James is not as high on Clowney as high on him as a lot of people. He thinks that O’Brien might be looking at more of a long term solution at quarterback. He thinks trading a later pick for Ryan Mallet or Kirk Cousins would be a bad move because the Texans have Fitzpatrick already.
The guys first highlighted an airline that will allow you to pay $800 for you to join the mile high club. This lead to a discussion of how awkward it must be to try and join the Mile High Club on a normal flight. Paul highlighted a priest in Alaska charged with possessing cannabis and a gun while drunk driving. They also explored weird things people use to get stoned. Apparently teens are smoking coffee beans lately.
Tonight the guys hit the road and went to Columbia, South Carolina and Augusta. First they talked to Josh Kendall, “The State”, on Jadaveon Clowney’s Pro Day. Kendall said that even with the question marks he would take Clowney as the first pick because he is just that impressive. Then they went to Savannah to talk to Seth Harp of Sports Radio 102.1 on the Masters and Tiger Woods. Harp talked about how his guess is as good as anyone else’s as to who will come out victorious in this mix.
Paul Gallant breaks down in Hater-aid what compelled him to pick radio over TV as his preferred media outlet. Basically he thinks TV people lack conviction. He detailed a twitter spat between himself and Randy McIlvoy to illustrate his point. He’d go so far as to tell you which TV station is the least reputable of them all.
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.
