Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 28: I Apologize for Everything!

The show started oddly, as my kids were dropped off at my house by the grandparents two minutes before the show I broke out a segment from the NPR show "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me." My mom thought my show was over, and she graciously took my kids to Disney on Ice, so she gets a pass.

Once the show got back underway, we had a solid effort. We had a news story about a orangutan who likes to take photos and we had an update on the Peru "fat-people" killers. I had several guests from the message board, including Major Minority, Face Ventura, and The Whale. We discussed apologizing as an epidemic which naturally led to a good conversation about Tiger Woods.

After discussing how we needed to "Leave Tiger Woods alone" complete with my wonderful singing pipes being broadcast for all to hear, we did a Contender-Pretender segment on NFL teams.

We finished off by taking a page from the LCS Hockey Show and talking a little bit of hockey. Actually, it was almost exclusively Florida Panthers hockey, which is not exactly a scintillating topic, but it was a fun conversation and it allowed me to plug the Dan Lebotard show.

The BlogTalk switchboard gave out on me and didn't allow me to play any more clips, so the Vertically Striped Music recommendation will have to wait until next week.
