SPORTS RADIO SHOW NAME-CHECKS FELLINI


This afternoon on the local Fox Sports Radio affiliate, 570 am, two of the three hosts of the afternoon “Loose Cannons” program, sportscaster Steve Hartman and ex-Laker Mychal Thompson, were discussing the extramarital trysts recently admitted by horndog Eliot Spitzer's replacement, N.Y. governor David Paterson. Amazed by all the blithe confessions, the third Loose Cannon, Vic “the Brick” Jacobs, piped up with typical incredulity, “What is this, Fellini Satyricon?!”

Congratulations, VTB, for fashioning a retort that absolutely no one who listens regularly to your radio station will ever understand! That’s comedy!

In my personal slang lexicon a baseball game where the home team wins in 9 innings is a Fellini, because you get to go home after 8-1/2 innings.

what a great story. I love that kind of stuff. Kinda fits in with the theme of your blog title, I have to say.

Robert, now I'm gonna have to start using that term. excellent!

Oh, and I forgot to add, if the visiting team ties or goes ahead in the top of the 9th after trailing, they have Denied the Fellini.

And forever shall it be, Robert! The Fellini, and even better, Denying the Fellini. That's beautiful. I feel like getting a campaign together to persuade Vin Scully to use that term just once sometime during the season (which starts in less than two weeks)!
