On the “Racing Against the Clock” CDST Show (Part 2):

 

On the “Racing Against the Clock” edition of CDST (Part 2):
— Now this is definitely the winning score … jazzy background music you have got to experience from the classic 70’s flick, “The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3” (“You’re a sick man, Rico”)
— A relatively svelte Chris Farley, as introduced by smart- mouthed Martin Lawrence, take the helm in a juvenile detention center … (“You got it, Homey” “I’m thirty five years old, thrice divorced, and I wish to hell I was living in a van down by the river” “That’s funny, and you’re purdy” “It’s a simple concept, bitches and cigarettes”)
— J.R. drops, but persistent Gerald to the rescue breaks through on skype line
— ChabDog decries his technology curse, but alas Glymph notes return to the conversation to save the day
— Fact — you cannot finish off a honey-do list in 10 minutes
— Steelers would rather pick up almost anything … other than Brady….
— Could be that the “nice” contracts are almost up for Tommie boy
— Andy Dalton’s no Timothy Dalton … is he even a Ryan Tannehill?
— As the conversation turns, we return yet again to the subject of bald Redskin QBs
— Our special guests insist Charlotte’s Cam is no charlatan.
— Time for Tyler Heineke to grab a Heineken and ride the couch.
— That Justin Herbert can really give the rock a heave.
— Super G’s astute reflections on Super Tuesday
— The extent to which Bernie’s drowning without any Southern comfort … just look at what happened in Virginia
— Biden’s mysterious connection with people … he can reach out and touch them, while sniffing
— Joe’s kicking back now that he’s inheriting Warren’s imposing ground game, along with Bloomberg’s bankroll
— Eric suggests a threesome with Bernie, AOC and Ilhan Omar (is that politically expedient? or possible?)
— The ultimate endorsement/campaign slogan by the Fonz … “My bike likes Ike” … maybe he should stump for Trump?
— Speculation on the Democratic VP Nominee … Kamala Harris? Stacey Abrams? Sinema paradiso?
— Why you could have a 269-269 tie? Why Donald would be fit to tied, unless Republicans control the newly-elected House.
— Trial by fire does not equal a trial without witnesses … let alone the first hand ones
— Deconstructing what an obstruction of justice really is
— Our mutual admiration society concludes another spirited meeting with a smokin tune from Aerosmith … Mama Kin….

On the “Racing Against the Clock” CDST Show (Part 1):

On the “Racing Against the Clock” CDST Show (Part 1):
— Looks like most spectators thumbed their nose at Daylight Savings Time by sleeping in, and missing the running of the LA Marathon (it’s not smart to play games with Father Time)
— Big surprise that the Men’s race was not, in fact won by Kenyan, … and ChabDog was right! The winner hails from Ethiopia.
— Tank refuses to admit any affiliation with fire hydrant man Dawejko, notwithstanding the same red letters on the back of his shorts
— Our pick for a big flop during March Madness … take-a-seat Seton Hall (after squandering a 4-game lead, they’re now 3rd in the Big East and backpedaling wildly into the conf tournament)
— Aztecs hit a nasty snag against the Aggies
— Dayton could well have a date with destiny
— Those poor Tar Heels continue to get the tar kicked outta them
— NJIT has less to do with basketball and more to do with ITT; they built a good gym, … now they need to figure out how to play in it
— There’s actually a more pitiable and unwanted post-season competition than the Not Invited Tournament … the dreaded CIT
— Get a load on our busy signal (it’s heavy duty)
— Dem party brass is tired of biding their time with Bernie; it’s time for Biden
— We just notice that they’re growing some physical specimens at College Park, including that big guy with glasses, who looks like a cross of Dwight Howard and Erkel
— This is yet another year that seems tailor made for Gonzaga
— A striking dichotomy in the two-tiered Ivy
— Columbia Lou … now this was no laughable Lion
— And in the Division 3 Tournament Sweet 16, it’s the Yeshiva Buchers and the Randolph Macon Baconaters [pretty funny hearing Frank the Goyboy try and pronounce “Macabees”] — USC may have burst the hopes of the bubble bouncing Bruins
— And why was there a particularly intense Corona virus scare in Baltimore?
— The entire Northern half of Italy has been shut down, except for the graffiti artists in Milan, who will continue to work on available building space
— Good thing the 80’s are over, and we can switch away from switches.
— Well-read pops an Adrian Barbeauner….
— Who said, “She yo problem”
— We get spited by Skype, and as a result of some curious technical difficulties, start playing musical callers
— Jumping into the Sports Rock truncated college b-ball pool
— Happy to go too far with Defy Life’s J.R., in terms of a number of provocative topics, including … 1) why big is better in the NBA, 2) Bill Russell’s accomplished career as a product pitchman, 3) rekindling the reasons for Rick Barry’s removal (no smiles after that unfortunate comment involving watermelon); 4) why Marv’s hotel room role playing was only a temporary hanging offense?, and why would this be taboo according to Me Too; 5) why one-and-done Duke isn’t having much fun, and the Cavs are having a ball; and 6) it’s still completely unnatural that the Terps are not populating the ACC

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives (Friday, March 6, 2020):

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

NBA Update:

  • Celtics made to look ridiculous at home — much like that movie producer in the Godfather — after Mike’s excellent con job. #Jazz #Celtics
  • Don’t tell Dallas that white men can’t jump; Porzingis is pouring it on with a river of buckets, and Doncic’s playing the role as sidekick toxic avenger. #Grizzlies #Mavericks
  • A very mature, but suitably explosive, LeBron lays a major haymaker, not to mention a plethora of body, on Giannis the Adonis and his Buck buddies. Milwaukee’s soft perimeter welcomed James into the paint all game, and Anthony Davis picked up whatever slack there was in the Laker offense with maximum efficiency. The best team in the league looked vulnerable, and they had better find some help for their superstar on offense (another Middleton meltdown in a big game … 5 for 19 just doesn’t cut the mustard). #Lakers #Bucks
  • So much for the Blazer revival show, after they get trashed by lumberjack Baynes and a surprisingly dangerous Dario. #Trailblazers #Suns

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives (Thursday, March 5, 2020):

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

NBA Update:

  • Stormin Norman leads the Raptors roaring back in a decisive 4th quarter, as Toronto picks up where it left off last June by rubbing out the Dubs; Curry’s back, but less protected than ever. #Raptors #Warriors
  • Clippers dominate inside and out against a vertically challenged Houston team that couldn’t consistently hit the broad side of a barn. Extreme small ball has some serious limitation against teams like LAC with a legitimate interior presence. #Clippers #Rockets
  • Another gem from Jamaal, as the under-appreciated Nuggets slip by the heroic Hornets. Denver continue to win the games it should win, but there’s no indication they can get it done in the playoffs against the conference heavy hitters. #Nuggets #Hornets

On the “Not Far From The Madding Crowd” CDST Show (Part 1):

— Best of Beach is again within Chabner Law’s reach! This time for 2020! Thank you to all who voted for us!
— Mich. St. has the ides of March on its side with the strong play of Cassius; Tom “Ratso” Rizzo has his guys primed and ready to roll.
— No surprise Beiline made a beeline out of the NBA; what was a Michigan guy doing coaching in Ohio, anyway. Bound for the Bruins?
— Our Kansas mush downplays the Jayhawks for their own good.
— Can the troubled Tar Heels find their wheels in the ACC tourney?
— Speculating about this year’s bracket busters …
— Nova getting unseated by Seton Hall atop the Big East.
— Some choice clips from ChabDog Sports Talk’s recent S. Car Dem debate podcast, with background soundbites and commentary by our panel.
— ChabDog’s happy that Biden negotiated that complex defense of his gun control record, but his reference to 150 million dead was a whopper that was clearly DOA.
— Steyer Steyer, time for you to retire … your pants are on fire, but your commentary is just tiring.
— Thin Lizzy makes Frank pull his moustache out in protest, while Bernie continues to dole out free goodies with renewed zeal.
— Why Newark=Gotham City, with plenty of factory clouds that appear to be angry, aroused wolves.
— Going over the electoral vote runoff scenario … sorry Frank, the impasse is broken in the House, not the Senate.
— Maybe Mitt should run as Bloomberg’s VP … if he really feels Trump is not qualified to continue to serve
— They are probably not taking communion in China
— A very spicy performance from press secretary Sean Spicer-girl (“I’m not here to be your buddy; I’m here to swallow gum and take names” …”The crowd greeted him with a standing ovation… the men all had erections, and the women were ovulating left and right” “Wait a minute that’s my email password/hey, stop writing that down” “At 4 PM we’re watching “Finding Dory, and then at 6, we’re abolishing the National Park Service” “You just said that; it’s your words”
— Maybe Frank needs to impersonate Melissa Mccarthy (“read it, go home and report it, and shove it up your ass”)
— There’s nothing impromptu about Pravda.
— Going back to April 1986 the minor interruption of service experienced at Chernobil “Do not panic, all is well”. Combined with the Red Sox meltdown against the Miracle Mets, that was a pretty tough year for yours truly.
— A critique of political cronyism and a rouge bus driver in the tri-state area, who reportedly attempted to abscond to Trinidad.
— Looking into how Mike secured that 3rd term as major of Metropolis
— Delving into the Giant feud between Giannis and The Beard; boy did that pass to the head really sting.
— Why banking on Houston to win the NBA title is indeed risky business. And we handicap the rest of the field, including the wreckage that is the Leastern Conference.
— Another half hearted year for Kyree
— We could very well see a freeway series in LA for the West.
— Who exactly comprises the Laker supporting cast for the benefit of LBJ and AD.

NBA Update:

  • … and the feud continues … Harden couldn’t pass up the opportunity to fan the flames by questioning the Greek Freak’s skill set. This is definitely getting saucy. #Bucks #Rockets
  • Let’s be clear … Houston’s Boss Ball Hog does know how to pass the ball … Giannis stands corrected…
  • All of this because someone didn’t picked first for the kickball team at recess….
  • Clippers digest the Nuggets with ease, in what may be their most definitive, and important, win of the season. Denver just can’t compete with this much heavy artillery. #Nuggets #Clippers
  • Milwaukee’s royal highness, Giannis, savagely steps on what was by all accounts a formidable adversary in OKC; those footprints are gaining traction. #Bucks #Thunder
  • Bad loss for the Raptors at home against the horrible Hornets; they find out that Terry Rozier is definitely still to be feared. #Hornets #Raptors
    Get a recap of the Charlotte Hornets vs. Toronto Raptors basketball game.

NBA Update:

  • LBJ leads the way as Lakers shoot down the Pels, but let’s keep our eyes on an exciting young Zion, who had more than a few flashes of brilliance. #Pelicans #Lakers
  • Nuggets use their fertile well of offensive ingenuity to put down the pitiable Pistons. #Pistons #Nuggets
  • The Jayson / Jaylen show was on full display, and with Lillard on the sidelines there wasn’t much CJ could do about it. #Celtics #TrailBlazers
  • Best in show Bucks make their closest eastern pursuer look like wandering mongrels in an overpowering 3rd quarter. #Bucks #Raptors

On the “Ending our Weekend with Bernie” CDST Show (Part 2):

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

On the “Ending our Weekend with Bernie” Show (Part 2):
— On this day off from work, treat yourself to a classic clip from Ferris Buehler’s day off (“roll her old bones on over here, and I’ll dig up your daughter”…”tell you what @#$#$#$, if you don’t like my policies you can just come down here and kiss my old white butt … pucker up buttercup” … “pardon my French, but you’re an asshole”)
— Who said “I was a Democratic caucus”? The same guy who said “I’m Joe Biden’s husband, and I work for Cedrick Richmond.”
— Joe Piscopo’s take on Tricky Dick … don’t miss it… (If you lie and cheat and betray a nation’s trust … people will hate you … and they’ll pay through the nose; if you really want to get inside Dick Nixon’s head, you have to use a proctoscope)
— ChabDog recalls his favorite Giants’ fan … Larry Dickman from The Enforcer (sometimes being a dork can be charming)
— We zoom in on the Pens-Caps Sunday matinee game (some color commentary from a terrific Met Division match up)
— Giving a second look at Oklahoma City; Chris Paul has those guys playing some ball
— By the way, what would it look like if NBA players put on skates?
— The challenge for getting into hockey (it’s just working too hard)
— Hillary waits, while Bloomberg baits.
— Giving mini-Mike, the elderly tyke equal time (yes the stakes are high, but what was with that prime time under-performance)
— With the mesmerizing narration of Anthony Hopkins, as Bligh narrowly escapes becoming brunch, then successfully navigates over 3600 miles to Timor without a compass, and based on nothing more than a hunch (“Row for your lives!” “Takes us next to islands, where cannibalism is taken down to a science” “All I can promise you is relentless pain and hardship … I promise you our chances for victory are fair” (hey sort of sounds like Biden))
— A very entertaining, but ultimately premature tribute to Don Criqui (no ChabDog, thankfully he is still alive and well) (listen in to relive memorable moments, including Tom Dempsey clubbing it 63 yards, Herm Edwards and the incredible fumble return that make Psarcik a dirty word in the Meadowlands, and, with broadcast buddy Trumpy, an animated war of Ohio in the early 80’s between the Marty’s Brownies and Wyche’s Bungles)
— Words worth repeating from Pete (Well-read thinks he’s being underrepresented at the polls)
— But can we come up with anything easier to spell and pronounce (and more catchy) than Buttigieg.
— Well-read unearths a particularly catchy action photo of Kaepy
— Living it up with Liberace: “Why don’t you come work for me? As what? I want to be everything to you, Scot? Why would a grown man want to adopt another grown man?”
— Sending us off with “Send it to me”

— PS — will we ever see another Corona Beer commercial, or is that brand name permanently bad karma. All we know is that hotline is not ringing off the hook.

On the “Ending our Weekend with Bernie” CDST Show (Part 1):

https://www.spreaker.com/user/godefylife/ending-our-week-with-bernie-cdst-show

On the “Ending our Weekend with Bernie” Show:
— Frank cranks out the Soviet National Anthem
— Some of us aren’t so excited about the New Deal II, and find watching Bernie point to be a real drag
— The new heavyweight champ Tyson looks like a cross between Wepner and Quarry.
— Handicapping what’s left in the Democrat field of dreams
— It’s only February, but when I watch Uncle Joe, all I can think of is Uncle June, knocking on the neighbors door, in pajamas and asking for ice cream
— ChabDog suspects he might be more than just a Boomer … he’s a Bloomer
— Because he’s such a threat (though according to LIzzie Boredom not a tall one), to lighten the mood, maybe Mike should use Mel Brooks as a body double in the next debate?
— Lawyers use redlining … why can’t arrogant billionaires do the same?
— “Pete, you lost to my friend Joe Donnelley [and you aren’t a proven winner”. For shame Amy, since when is winning in Minny grounds for asserting executive privilege over Buttigieg.
— Lots George Steinbrenner, along with a George Peterson interlude, which gets us in the mood for more Bernie. “She’s a heartbreaker, lovemaker, dreammaker ”
— Why Rob Man-fraud doesn’t have a problem with cheating Houston keeping its big piece of metal/MLB would be placating the out-for-blood public by vacating.
— LA banking on Price being money in the playoffs (but they know starting him is a non-starter), while Rendon hails a cab for the home of the hittable Halos
— Very sad about bulldog Swagger being taken away from the Dog Pound in an open casket; later in the show we go back to the glory years of Brian Sipe, as touted by Trump and Criqui
— The perfect Pelosi, as done by Kammy Burnett productions … yes this performance raised a few eyebrows
— Tyson gives his opponent a real Marchand moment when he a wet one to Wilder
— Slogging Leafs wilt and fold when their Zamboni driver fills in as the emergency goalie … for the other team
— The significance of “Patrick” as a major name in NHL history
— On the Miracles on Ice having slid to the right
— Wrecking the Aztecs bubble
— 8 should be enough for purposes of those presently unavoidable conference tournaments (currently, basket of deplorables IUPUI could go on a magical run and get an invite)
— Who’s in the MEAC, and where do they reside? We know one is named hopeless Howard. We read out the rest, including my personal favorite …
— “I’d like to make a Botox appointment tomorrow… wait a minute, I’m Nancy Pelosi … don’t mess with me … you don’t mess with Nancy Pelosi…no way Nancy has gray hair .. rip rip… I don’t hate nobody…. I’ll drink to that ,,,, not only did I rip my State of the Union Speech, I also ripped … my birth certificate”

NBA Update:
  • Heat hit the street for the 2nd half with a gift from god … the clueless, Clouseau-like Cleveland Cavaliers. #Cavaliers #Heat
  • Rockets pocket a big road win against the overtaxed Jazz. #Rockets #Jazz
  • Dead-in-the-water Sixers just rolled the red carpet out for Giannis, who lived next to the bucket all night. Yes, a 5-18, -18 Embeed was completely missing from the news feed. #Sixers #Bucks
  • Kings take some of the sting out of a Clipper team, from which the tentacles of that master of mayhem … Pat Beverly … were noticeably missing. #Kings #Clippers

NBA Update:

  • The long and the short of it is, Paul’s addition seems to have made Adams and the rest of the Thunder one happy family, indeed. OKC overwhelms a drab Denver squad, and continues to creep into the upper echelon of the West Conference … still quite under the radar. #Nuggets #Thunder
  • Toronto continues to pack a painful punch with Pascal …37 and 12… wow. #Suns #Raptors
  • Another gorgeous game from Gordo takes down the T-wolves. #Celtics #Timberwolves

NBA Update:

  • Rockets scrub and clean the slate with the scrubs from Golden State. A conference champ hasn’t decomposed this fast … since Lebron left Cleveland with those pronounced skid marks. #Rockets #Warriors
  • Very impressive game from an extremely talented Young man. Mr. Trey douses the Heat with a parade of threes and frees. #Heat #Hawks
  • The outcome of this unseemly beat down was never in doubt … not for a Mil-isecond. #Bucks #Pistons

On the “Don’t need another cup of Joe” CDST Show (Part 1):

 

On the CDST “Scrambled, Sunny Side Up Show” (Part 1):
— A great, great show, as Eric gives us a rare glimpse into the storehouse of sports knowledge that holds Frank’s brain
— Don’t look that-a-way … you could be in Piscataway if you’re watching football at RU
— We’re joined by Tank of Barstool Sports, who’s rumored to be in the running for the Mets as part of the A-rod consortium
— How to fix an NBA slam dunk contest (how can you jump over Taco Fall and not be able to keep up with the Joneses … no wonder there was a swearin Aaron). But seriously, why go to all that trouble.
— Who’s mind is responsible for the terribly idiotic and hopelessly meaningless new format for the NBA All-star game … you can dress this up however you want and it still looks like a pig (lip stick notwithstanding)
— Would someone please teach Giannis a post move?
— Wow, there’s a sighting of Chance the Rapper; is he related to Chauncey Gardner
— DW’s not very superhuman Superman slam gets a 49 (what a joke)
— How about that sexy acquisition by Brody’s Bunch of Jedd “Deadwood” Lowrie … ha ha ha
— An excellent, Flemingish XFL update
— A not so tender clip of McGloin
— Explaining why Raftery is known for his onions
— Why has Seton Hall left the building?
— We’re happy to announce that Rutgers has finally emerged from it’s no-hope-for the NCAA rut. What were you doing in 1991?
— Some low lights are shined on the tarnished Tar Heels; boy has that worm thrown a tizzy at the expense of despondent Roy.
— The ultimate NCAA misfit (Columbia). Yes, the college version of the Lions is even less competitive than the pro variety.
— Sorry state of affairs for Chicago State. And the University of Bob Denver isn’t any better. Holy Cross is getting the holy @#$#$ beaten out of them. Time to call them the “Lusaders”.
— As for Evansville, everyone is getting even (and then some with them). Someone needs to show Howard how to get it done.
— Eric confuses Idaho State and Boise.
— The Kennesaw State Owls are so bad they’re making Judge Mountain Landis throw up on himself in the grave.
— Hey a lot has happened over longtime commish Kennesaw’s dead body (including integretion of the majors).. The judge was a real nice guy (“son, just do the best you can – to do those years”) (“Gentlemen, I’m due back in court in 5 minutes … let’s talk salary”)
— Bowie Kuhn, whose era was known for strikes. And he also had a great name.
— A recommendation for baseball’s survival…use free internet to get your product in front of people
— An interview you won’t want to miss with the Shah of Iran (giving important insights into the genesis of pervasive anti-West feelings of resentment in Iran and the dynamics of oil markets in the late 70s)
— ChabDog espouses new respect for the State College of New Jersey
— Under 20 degrees is not dog walking weather (sorry Bingo)
— A word about Leo .. the latest family dachshund … the foot long hot dog … and then some
— Who would you rather watch … PK “puke” Subban or “Bad Bunny”
— Team Giannis vs. Team Lebronis (we can hardly contain ourselves)
— The conversation rotates toward rotars
— Getting happily sidetracked with Bonnie and Clyde

NBA Update:

  • Don’t look now, but the Griz are making an earlier than expected push up to the playoffs this Feb…. with another very voluptuous, stat-packing night for Valanciunas. On the skimpier side of things, there’s Carmelo’s shocking shooting %, which wasn’t helped by tonight’s 1 for 15. TrailBlazers #Grizzlies
  • No Giannis … no excuse for the Pacers not to hold on to their big lead, which they did (barely). #Bucks #Pacers
  • For the first time in 16 opportunities, the Raptors finally fall flat in a trap game, getting ensnared by the needy Nets. #Raptors #Nets
