On tonight's show: We have yet another "Very special guest. Who, you ask? The long-time WDFN (R.I.P.) morning man, former WRIF Mike in the Morning show regular, and current Detroit Free Press blogger, Jamie Samuelsen! We'll cover the gamut of the Detroit sports landscape with the opinionated Jamie, discussing his experiences blogging for Free Press and get his take on the Lions and Tigers. Hopefully, we can talk a little inside baseball in regard to the troubled terrestrial radio business. After we speak to Jamie Samuelsen, we'll move on to our usual format, bitching about Detroit sports! We'll give our thoughts on the big news of past week, the Detroit Tigers trading for starting pitcher Jarrod Washburn at the trade deadline. Is adding only Washburn enough to win the mediocre Central? Do the Tigers still need a bat? Inquiring minds should listen! We then tackle the start of the Detroit Lions' training camp, the first of the Schwartz/Mayhew/Lewand era. Or should we call it the beginning of the Matthew Stafford era? From all accounts, the rookie QB is impressing the Lions' coaching staff during workouts. Not so impressive is the new free agent WR, Bryant Johnson, who will miss the first 2 weeks of workouts thanks to...road rash caused by a...wait for it...golf cart crash. If the Lions didn't have bad luck (or sign moronic receivers who wreck golf carts), they'd have no luck at all. We'll get on our soapbox in regard to the fate of the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, which has amassed 6 figures worth of debt, despite having absolutely no overhead. The Hall is on the verge of auctioning off plaques of Detroit's greatest athletes to pay creditors, a stunning revelation. We'll also have a take on the state of Michigan losing 2 big time sporting events, the PGA's Buick Open and the IRL's Belle Isle Grand Prix. We'll also name our respective Jerk of the Week! Be here at 11PM every Monday night for the latest and greatest in sports talk...sports talk with a Detroit attitude!
