Tonight, EDSBS Radio reappears...
...only this time with such innovations as sound quality, a moderator for callers, and interstitial music and commercials that won't deafen you. We've moved the show to the Now! Network--check the preview page here--and will have someone manning the boards for us, controlling sound quality, and exterminating all of the bugs that bedeviled the initial installment of the show.
What: EDSBS Radio
When: 8:00 p.m.--9:00 p.m. EST
Where: On the EDSBS channel at Now Live.
How: To call in? (310) 984-7600. You may also register at Now Live and participate in the live chat, where we'll be taking comments and working them into the broadcast.
Why: Because you, like us, need to confess to the fact that you're going to tailgate your spring practice game like the desperate, depraved person you truly are.
Who: Peter Bean of Burnt Orange Nation and Orson from this website, along with special guest Warren St. John of the New York Times and the best book ever written about college football fandom, Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer.
The five questions from last time have been whittled down to four questions. To prepare ahead of time, your study list appears below:
1. What do you know about your team going into spring practice?
2. Better still...what don't you know about your team going into spring?
3. What's your offseason coping mechanism?
4. What's a badass death?
The final question has to do something with a long running debate between EDSBS attorney to the stars Weo Lee and ourselves as to what constitutes a badass death. His prime examples:
--Brad Pitt's death in Legends of the Fall where he fights a bear.
About 10,000 Juneau residents briefly lost power Jan. 28 after a bald eagle lugging a deer head crashed into transmission lines.
"This is the story of the overly ambitious eagle who evidently found a deer head in the landfill," said Gayle Wood, an Alaska Electric Light & Power spokeswoman. The hefty bounty apparently bogged down the eagle, which failed to clear transmission lines as it flew away from the landfill, she said. When a repair crew arrived, they found the eagle carcass with the deer head nearby.
The eagle "got a hold of a little bit more than he could handle," Wood said.
--A hypothetical he's been refining for years where he plays a guitar solo on top of a jet that's just dropped a tactical nuclear weapon into a hurricane off the coast of Florida. Did we mention he's wearing a speedo and a hockey mask, too?
These will be on the exam tonight. Prepare accordingly. And hey, they're taking us on the network despite us bringing down the overall hotness of the operation considerably. After all, Adrianne Curry is one of the hosts on the network, and she married Peter Brady. That's uber-hott.
We're bringing the ass factor in the neighborhood down considerably.
