Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 62 - 2nd Annual Sockie Awards plus World Cup Talk!

Twas the day before Independence Day, and the whole gang was dressed in their finest formal wear for the presentation of the 2nd annual Sockie awards. The Vertically Striped Academy of Arts, Sciences, and other Neato Stuff broke out the 2010 Vertically Striped Awards for Excellence in the Field of Excellence. The winners were overjoyed, to be sure, and included the likes of Ben Roethlisberger, the color Orange, and even our very own Face Ventura. You could cut the tension with a spork when the People's Choice Sockie award was decided by an on-air coin flip...Congrats to the LCS Hockey Show!! In addition to the Sockies, Elevation, Face Ventura, and The Whale joined Craig to discuss the top seven World Cup "kits" in a very special Magnificent Seven list. Face even did prep for the list, although, he didn't prep his phone sufficiently as both his cell phone and his Skype connection via his laptop died during the show. He was around long enough to get in his very vanilla Top World Cup uniform list in. (Personally, I think mine was better...Denmark? Really??) We also learned about the craziness of Ron Artest, who I find to be likable now after MANY years of finding him despicable. We broke down his post NBA Finals Game 7 press conference craziness. The man likes attention, this much is certain. We also looked in on the continuing saga of the difficulty of being a Self-Help show. (Our thanks to "The Hoff!") We're just so in demand...and remember kids...DON'T drink and drive!!! The Vertically Striped Music Recommendation was "July, July!" by the Decemberists. Happy 4th of July everyone!
