Then you missed the Foot race, that Fast Chris won, it's a top 5 show moment.

This is both awesome and very very sad.

Dan is becoming a real thing. Like really real. I guess I'm glad for him, but I'm sad for me.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

Maybe I'm alone here, but I'm not a big fan of Hank being the voice of March Sadness. I mostly enjoy his work, just not in this capacity.

Did you guys even read the comments? This thread was on the front page, and almost all of the comments on the first comment were about the show.

it was a ways down for me, scrolled for a bit and then gave up, I figured you linked the wrong story. I still don't understand what you're sad about, though.

It kind of hit me like I imagine someone like mk or Strat feels when one of their bands goes mainstream. LeBatard felt like our thing, and now it's everyone's thing. It's not bad or sad, really, it just hit me weird that it's getting so popular.


Also, thanks for somehow finding him so many years ago and pushing us to listen. I still can't believe you just randomly found a local Miami podcast like that, BigD. Do you have anything else that you've been listening to lately that you're loving?

Iíve been a a regular since 2009, so I got that going for me, which is nice


Itís funny, when they moved to mornings, all of us on here swore up and down that dan was miserable, and he was strident in his denial of that, claiming he has a great life and he isnít unhappy

Now he readily admits that he was miserable, and that he made this switch for everyone else, not himself, which is exactly what we said

Much like dan, our greatest joy is in being right.

Wonder if they are playing the hits because they are headed to Sirius and are going to lose their library???

Dan and crew really crap on Hoch for being an attention whore and marketer. I like Hochís cheesiness. I also laugh at Coteís clunkers.

Death metal hockey guy wasnít THAT funny. I like surfer dude better.

I don't remember how I found him, I'm pretty sure I heard him on The old BS report on ESPN. I know I used to like him when he was on Sunday mornings on ESPN radio, when I was up all night playing poker and driving home. That's probably why I decided to give him a shot, after hearing him on Bill Simmons but honestly, I don't clearly remember how it happened anymore. I'm pretty sure I was listening in 2008, because I remember writing Hoch an email when his pops died, thanking him for the show and how much it meant to me, when my own pops died in 2008, so I had to be listening at least then.

I also found it mildly upsetting when they were crapping on Hoch last week. I loved Hoch. Mike is good at his job, there is no doubt. But in my memory, I still liked Hoch better. (At least as an on-air personality - without commenting on his actual abilities as a producer)

Hochman made me laugh much harder than Mike does. Over all, the shipping container as a whole > Hoch but If I could trade Mike for Hoch, I'd do it in a nanosecond. I wonder how Hoch feels about being the Dunkleman of the Lebatard show.

I donít listen to the main show much anymore due to time, but the local hours really have been annoying. Just trying way too hard to be funny, do bits, rag on Cote, etc. itís too much at this point. Donít be afraid to mix in even a hint of actual local sports talk.

Plus, before they even said anything, I thought he was being rude to that Cuban mafia writer.
