What happened to 'The Show With No Name' today?

Posted on Mon, Jun 26, 2006 at 3:16 PM

Anybody know? We caught it after the 8 a.m. hour and after a few seconds of talk among Baz, Jimmy B and Joe Kleine that it was a show from May, just after the first round of the NBA playoffs. We learned that Cleveland had no chance against Detroit (Lebron he Cavs took the Pistons to a seventh game and could have closed them out in six at home), and that the Pistons and Suns were the teams to beat the rest of the way (both failed to advance their conference finals, as Miami and Dallas moved on and Miami won it all).

Anyway, apparently today was a show with no people, so they pulled a show from the recent past, apparently to show us how badly they can predict professional basketball. Today's not a holiday, maybe Tommy just needed another day off  from his recent neck surgery. Certainly there was someone available to come in and discuss such prevailing topics of interest out there like the NBA Draft and Ronnie Brewer, Gus Malzahn, Andre Agassi's retirement, Wally Hall's column on Sunday, the Arkansas Blog, the Cards' flop against the best in the AL Central, Beckham's bending it for England, Phil's choke, and so on. Couldn't we have just had six or seven hours of Justin and Nathan and Joe, instead of the mid-day three (which isn't near enough time for this trio and their timely comments)?

Maybe J.R. and Henry need their own show. Maybe we need to figure out a way to podcast J.R. and Henry. What do you think? Could listeners stand a sports talk show with that disguised-voice deal like they do for mob informants who come on "Nightline" and want to remain unidentified?
