Barry Melrose Has Been Informed of Our Existence

This is the kind of thing you never really thought would happen, but inevitably does most of the time. Thanks to a reader tip from Ricky H (you guys might as well just write the site yourselves these days) it turns out the Man, the Legend now knows about out feeble Blogspot existence.

If you take a listen to the last couple of minutes of Melrose's podcast from the other day, it's there.

Melrose co-hosts a weekly podcast on with Joy Russo. I don't get a chance to listen to it most of the time, since a) I don't have the required attention span and b) I don't have the time. Really, you'd be surprised how hard it can be to spare 22 minutes. But you know me, I still think the guy is straight ballin' cool as hell and catch his gig on Sportscenter whenever I can.

I would like the be the first to formally welcome our new ESPN podcasting overlords! Barry, if you're reading, we come in peace! Our only goals are to make random hockey jokes and it point out every time Mark Messier cries in public. Every once in a while we actually piece together some coherent thoughts, but other than that, we're basically harmless. Oh and keep up the good work. We're those positive people you talk about. Not those haters. I didn't even realize there were BM haters, but that shows how much I know.


  1. stupid podcast won't let me skip ahead...but that is awesome. Sometimes I debate writing Tie Domi's website and alerting him to my existence, but that would be weird, plus I don't know if he'd get the joke...

  2. LD- he seems to have plenty of time on his hands so go ahead and alert!

    Kev- great job. I have all the time in the world but I am not going to listen to a 22 minute podcast so I am taking your word for it.

  3. @blackcapricorn: he's busy spreading the net with Cuba Gooding Jr. (by the way, I'm so using that for a future FYY)

    Like I said, I'm not sure if he'd get the joke...

  4. Our only goals are to make random hockey jokes and it point out every time Mark Messier cries in public.

    And you do that wonderfully, Kevin.

  5. Congrats, dude! That's a pretty big accomplishment.

  6. I heard them talk about it...that's what brought me over. Like the blog!
