Episode 11: The Mitchell That Stole Christmas
Ho ho ho...hey who are you calling a ho? The Idiots are back with their final podcast of 2007!
We start things off with the greatest gift of all: the Mitchell report. Who would have predicted that Roger Clemens would be named and named and named. I guess anyone who's seen his neck widen like a giant. Some other douches are named and Jackie and Tim give them the business.
Then comes football! Tim interrupts Jackie's meditation on the undefeated Pats to gloat about the 1 and 99 Dolphins. Then Tim foolishly puts his money where his mouth is betting $100 on Pats/Dolphins. Like stealing candy from a baby. A hairy baby.
Finally the Idiots talk NBA and the current state of the Knicks (beyond terrible). A caller is revealed to be Jackie's former podcast partner, Roger Doyle. Turns out he DID NOT make assistant manager at Jamba Juice.
See you next year Sports Fans!

Episode 11: The Mitchell That Stole Christmas
Thursday, December 20, 2007
"We all know the Parcells track record. He's a serial flirter. He absolutely loves the process of being wooed. His ego needs it, even craves it. When he's on the job, he'll give you the full Parcells, a leader who's opinionated, decisive, and unafraid to fail.
But then, sure as the arrival of hiring/firing season in the NFL, he'll tire of the challenge before him, and like he has so many times before, he'll step aside to await his next wooing. By now, it's in his DNA. The man goes through NFL jobs like Larry King does marriages." (Sports Illustrated)On Bill Parcels being wooed by the Atlanta Falcons and the Miami Dolphins.

Espn trade machine says this will work...
Knicks get a spot up shooter and Strong Island native so Zach can kick out to, plus the contract comes off the books in two years, less then the four of Eddy Curry. Kurt Thomas comes back, and his contract comes off the books this year, plus, Steph didn't run the pick and roll better then with Oll cross eyes.
Sonics get a bonified center to take some pressure off Durant. Qrich is a more athletic player then Wally, and will help rebound where Durant falls short. Nate and Fred are Northwest locals who are cheep and irrelevant.
DO THIS ZEKE!!!

WIDOW TAKES HUSBAND'S ASHES TO NFL GAME
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Richard Desrosiers never made it to Heinz Field to watch his beloved Steelers play football, but his widow helped him fulfill his dream in death.
Thanks to some help from sympathetic donors, Kathleen Desrosiers attended Sunday's game, bringing an urn with some of her late husband's ashes, as well as his ring and two pictures of him. He had died in March of a brain tumor.
"I couldn't take the tumor away. I couldn't take the pain away. I couldn't make him better. But I can do this," Kathleen Desrosiers, 60, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Though he lived in Exeter, N.H., Richard Desrosiers adopted the Steelers at an early age and followed them closely. He named his dog Steeler and his wardrobe, by his widow's estimate, was 95 percent Steelers gear.
Braving the biting cold and the Steelers' disappointing 29-22 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Desrosiers waved her new Terrible Towel, showed off her painted face and warmed her head with a Steelers hat.
She called it "an overwhelming experience."
"It's sad to think that he got here in death," she added. "But this is where he wanted to be. It was what he asked me to do. I got to be with him one last time while he did something he wanted more than anything else in the whole wide world."
Amy Litterini, a western Pennsylvania native who now lives in New Hampshire, was the couple's counselor during Desrosiers' yearlong battle with cancer. She arranged for the purchase of the two tickets to Sunday's game and raised money for Kathleen Desrosiers and one of her sons to spend a night in a Pittsburgh hotel.
Desrosiers was covered with a Steelers blanket when he died, and at his funeral, his two stepsons honored his memory by donning Steelers jerseys.

It's December and that can mean only one thing... My KNICKS are the leagues black sheep once again...
Being that I am on strike and have some time to fuck around with ESPN's trade machine... I came up with a huge blockbuster deal that could work for the Knicks.
This will never happen... but it's pretty much all I have as a Knick fan to keep me going..
4 Team Deal...
New York Trades
Malik Rose -- Orlando
Quentin Richardson -- Sacramento
Nate Robinson -- Sacramento
Mardy Collins -- Miami
Cash and Channing Frye trade exemption -- Miami
Brad Miller -- Orlando
Mike Bibby -- Miami
Ron Artest -- Knicks
Jayson Williams -- Sacramento
Dorell Wright -- Knicks
Chris Quinn -- Knicks
JJ Redick -- Knicks
Carlos Arroyo -- Knicks
Keyon Dooling -- Sacramento
Keith Bogans -- Sacramento
Pat Garrity -- Sacramento
Carlos Arroyo -- Expiring contract
JJ Redick -- Shooter to surround Big guys -- may blossom, may not
Chris Quinn -- Expiring contract, waved probably
Dorell Wright -- Expiring contract, probably traded to someplace like minnesota before he ever plays a game
Ron Artest -- Tru Warrior comes home
Brad Miller -- Complements Dwight Howard pefectly
Malik Rose -- Locker room guy helps with playoff run
Mike Bibby -- Former All Star, Shoots lights out
Mardy Collins -- Bruce Bowen Jr.
Nate Robinson -- Cheep, young, fills seats
Pat Garrity -- Expring contract
Keyon Dooling -- Expiring contract
Jayson Williams -- Expiring contract
Keith Bogans -- Expiring contract
Quentin Richardson -- Younger and less crazy then Ron Ron, easily moveable
So there you have it...
The deal could get done so, Sactown rids itself of three horrible contracts, Miami gets Bibby to rejuvinate Shaq and Wade, Orlando gets the beef and veteran leadership needed downlow, and New York gets Artest to play D, and JJ to shoot if Isiah plays him, plus we rid ourselves of some pretty horrible contracts ourselves.

The police released the arrest tapes of Tony LaRussa over the weekend. But there is already questions about the validity of these tapes. If you listen to Talk About It's EXCLUSIVE release of the audio tapes (as played in EPISODE 2), you'll find there is something fishy going on. Also, just watch him stumble around:
