Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 73
On the eve of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, the VSR crew was feeling quite piratey. I opened the show with about 45 seconds of forced pirate talk which I enjoyed despite being not very good at. Face Ventura, The Ed, and John "Elevation" Kline all called in and helped discuss pirate type items. Ed told us the story of when he was 15 and was sailing in Lake Michigan, took a wrong turn, and ended up fighting pirates in the Nile. Then he tried to mutiny on my show and talk boxing, and I had to Keelhaul him...which is what we will now call having to use the mute button forcefully. After the mutiny was put down, we discussed the Top 7 Pirates of all time and somehow started talking NFL uniforms yet again. Somehow it always comes back to sports uniforms with us. I also played a taped conversation that I had with Seahawk fan Aaron Young from The No Name Show (www.blogtalkradio.com/No-Name-Show) where we made a wager on the outcome of tomorrow's Broncos-Seahawks game. GO BRONCOS! We played a selection of pirate shanties throughout the show, including Yo Ho Yo Ho, A Pirates life for me, A Pirate looks at forty, 15 Men on a dead man's chest, and the last Saskatchewan Pirate. A good time was had by all...Arrrgh!!!
