- April 2, 2015
Doing this again. Questions in the comments. Seems there’s plenty to talk about today.
Kyle Scott is the founder and editor of CrossingBroad.com. He works sans pants.
Thoughts on Dylan Ennis transferring?
Pissed. Seemingly came out of nowhere. Was gonna be a key piece in what could’ve been another really good season next year. That said, Brunson is like the best point guard in the country coming here. He might be Jay’s best recruit since Lowry or Fraser.
Marks, Shander, baldy morning show. 10-2 Gargano and Mayes.
Are you serious? That is an awful idea.
If you live in Horsham and don’t have a real job why aren’t you at the Abbey every day getting wasted?
Also, Abbey’s hockey team blows.
He doesn’t get fucked up, just in comments
I had no idea they had a hockey team. Was actually there the other day to have meeting about advertising. We had to reschedule. I can’t day drink and work. Typically, unless it’s at night while watching a game and doing a quick post, once the first beer hits my lips – it’s so good, obviously – I’m done working.
Where does Pat Gallen fall into plans? Any thoughts
No idea. I wouldn’t imagine he’s part of their day time weekday plans. Could be wrong.
so whats your favorite memory of childhood?
The time my dad knocked me off a pier while throwing a minnow to a sea gull. He caught me by feet. I almost died. There were rocks and sharks below, I think. Every year, the 10-foot Somers Point pier gets higher.
what is the real deal with the cuz will he be on 97.5 and when
Real deal is they will almost undoubtedly hire him. When? That’s the question. I still think a morning show is a real possibility– Mike and Mike be damned. But I don’t know that last part for sure. I’d wager good money they’ll hire him. If I had to guess, I’d say next week.
Thoughts on the Union’s poor start? Is it all my fault like everyone says?
I’ll help here…terrible job (again) by their “GM” not addressing needs, no CB chemistry, poor leadership by the goalie they thought was such a game changer, and our wings (Letoux, Winger) have been bad. That said, they likely got screwed out of 4 points in the first two games. Like always, they’ll probably start to click later in the year but a poor start will have them too far back.
more help… the Sixers have a more talented roster than the Union. Of course there’s a ton of issues all over the organization, but they hardly have the talent of the top teams. The league adds Kaka, Lampard, Gerrard, Altidore, Dempsey, Diskerud, Giovinco, Villa, Jones, Martins……Union do nothing except add a guy they pretend is good and a overrated goalie who is only well known because he’s the best goal keeper in the soccer-powerhouse nation of Algeria (haha!).
Bleacher Report put out a list of the top 50 players in the MLS this season….not a single Philadelphia Union player on that list of 50.
It’s a shame, but I can’t even watch with how untalented their roster is. Turned in my tickets, rather stay at home and watch the real MLS teams play.
haha he said talented MLS teams
Who is a bigger tool, you or Sean Brace?
I think we’re toolish in different ways.
Aren’t you Kyle Laskowski?
Congratulations, you’re the 98th person to use Facebook to figure out my last name and that Scott’s my middle name. I didn’t initially so I wouldn’t get fired from my job. It stuck. Fun fact: Wife wanted to go with Scott as surname for obvious reasons. Stuck with Laskowski. Gotta keep that seed going.
Wait, you’re jewish??? Game changer.
He’s polish. Even better.
Wow, dude. Kyle Laskowski makes so much sense.
I really enjoy this blog, Kyle, but I think you look almost like Tolly in that picture. Thoughts?
Jim does a good job. You all hate him because you hate everything.
why are you so salty about not being invited to a Phillies media day?
I’m not. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t have gone. It saves me time and money to sit here and just comment on the press release. But they’re dumb for not inviting me and other blogs. If they don’t want to credential, fine (I don’t want one), but that sort of thing is a no-brainer to invite everyone possible.
What channel you like more WIP or 97.5.
It’s more about certain hosts. I honestly don’t listen that much because it’s hard to listen and write at same time (or copy and paste!).
Yeah it’s the same with me it depends who’s on
Fair to say Matt Nahigian is much more professional than Andy Bloom?
Yes. I like Matt. He’s a reasonable guy.
Would you rather summon velociraptors any time you sneeze OR be with a partner who posts public reviews of your sexual performances online?
Is your mom writing the reviews? Because if so, I’d bet they’d be glowing!
[But seriously, the velociraptors thing.]
What do you think really happened that lead to brace and the producer being shit canned? Any theories?
I just think they wanted to go in a different direction. Hearing their may have been some TURMOIL in that time slow, but a lot of that is second hand.
Kyle, do you hate when I post this message? Also, the mocking/hate we give to you about Nova and their early exits?
I count my pennies every time. Keep it up.
Hey homey, want to get a room?
How much do you honestly make a year from just the site? And I don’t want the “I do ok” BS!!
Not giving specifics. I do… well.
im guessing ballpark $871??
Would you ever consider hiring another employee? Either part or full-time, interns can only do so much. And if so what would it take to get the job?
Yes. Someone who could write. Also, more money. Have some ideas how to do this. One would be a $3 per month premium thing to bypass surveys. Totally optional, but I’ve had more than a few people request something like it.
More open ended surveys please
… watch as joke flies over Kyle’s head….
…just his tho
I think I’ve asked this before, not sure if you answered…why not switch the comments section to a better system like Disqus? That way we can track comments (like me wanting to see someones response to something I wrote) etc.
I’ll get around to it. Not disqus. I don’t want to rely on a dumb plugin to run comments, but I do like the idea of a voting system.
Throwing a curve ball at you and switching up your sports knowledge for a change. How do you feel about Travis Pastrana? Any kid that grew up riding any kind of motorcycle knows who he is!
Saw him at some bike thing at Wells Fargo Center way back. He’s cool, I guess?
How were you able to get this site so incredibly popular? It’s a fantastic site. Love the Radio War Chronicles!!
I love you! Facebook and Twitter helped, and posts about Jeff Carter. Cliff Lee signing in 2010 took it to another level I think, it was a week after I quit my job and two weeks before I was contacted about starting Barstool Philly.
Or how about the fact that you made sure the Eagles tore themselves apart 2 years ago with the Cooper thing? They didn’t go far in the playoffs because of all that bullshit.
Right. Totally my fault. But for the real the Cooper thing didn’t have that much of an impact on the site after the first few days.
Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses, or 1 horse sized duck?
I think I answered this last time, but easy: 1 horse sized duck. Just run under it’s high legs, it’ll never catch you. Like a boss in a video game. That’s how you’d beat it.
neither, he’d run away and tell jim to toss his salad
were with kyle hello greeting.. > which there by the sea haven’t we been accustomed too, as of latelihood.? casually through ~~ the spectrum* off big big fish = do not hesistate, nevertheless(). please Considere your analysis Big Nuts Chip, jim though fondly, — ahhhh, but therein lies the question answer.! interested to receive thoughts from you??
Are there any young sports talk hosts in this town that you like? It feels like both stations just recycle the same middle-aged guys.
Yes, lots. I think the format and topics often sucks, but that says less about the hosts and more about the sad state of local sports right now.
why does Meech hate you
Because Meech is better than you
When should I be expecting my royalty checks in the mail?
With a last name like Laskowski how are you not Jewish????
Because it’s not Laskowsky.
What will happen to the Revel? Are there spooky ghosts in there now?
Terrible execution. Yes, very bad.
jim is tossing your salad right now
Even Alexandra Daddario is impressed.
What do you think happened that lead to brace and the producer being fired ? Inquiring minds wanna know. follow up question. Will brace land on his feet and be a good server at Applebee’s ?
Honestly don’t know. Brace’ll figure something out– he’s a good MC and talented at that sort of thing. He should be behind a mic.
what will a morning show for 97.5 mean in terms of the ESPN/Mike & Mike Show? (personally it makes way more sense, as major sports markets like Philly, NY, DC, Boston dont need national radio shows as we usually care about what’s going on here more than anywhere else). and if so, do you think the new morning show have to do the 5 minutes talking/5 minutes of commercials thing that Mike & Mike do for ESPN advertising?
It would mean no more Mike and Mike around here and 97.5 probably losing it’s ESPN affiliation and guests like SAL PAL and Jaws. I think.
How many games do you think the Phils will win in April? Tough schedule. I’m thinking 9 wins.
Do you know for a fact that innis reads the comments and is butt hurt
I’m sure he reads them.
don’t shit in jims face kyle
What is the worst fraternity on this campus?
Hey man, who cuts your hair?
Some place that charges $14
Why didn’t you write anything about Jayvaughn Pinkston violating his probation? Is it true if you don’t use it, you will lose it?
I wrote something about him punching someone 5 years ago.
Are you going to have an update about the afternoon radio ratings? Did innes and Bruno really beat mikey miss?
The March numbers will be most telling.
why can’t we say R H E A ‘s name on this site?
Nor can you say K-C
Can you please do away with the survey questions?
Here’s how I interpret that: Please do away with a substantial portion of your salary.
I could write sabrmetric articles for you. That’s not a question. That’s a job interview. I’m hired.
Send it over.
Damn, you called my bluff. Well played.
I suggested the Jim AMA last week, and you did it. So obviously I am some kind of power on your dumb blog. I have a few other things that could be fun to see. Let me know the possibilities.
1) Innes AMA
2) Hottest news personality bracket (run more effectively than the PSMOF64)
3) An actual, legit professional poll about sports radio in Philly.
4) Me writing a guest column about whatever the hell I want (I have credentials, which of course makes you jealous because you are a jealous douche)
1) I’d love to do more AMA’s, like we did with Tony. I’d love to include a Periscope component, too. Just got to find the people. Innes would be good, but I can’t imagine his dick boss would let him.
2) Thought about it. Think it would’ve gone overboard.
4) So you can write a game recap?
Did you and Andy Bloom make up?
No. F him.
Favorite Cheesesteak Place?
Steve’s. I like Steve’s. And Campo’s at Wells Fargo Center is surprisingly good.
and then you ruined it…
Have you tried Joe’s? It is the best of the best.
What would it HONESTLY take for Jim to get fired? Not even joking. Just curious what degree of fuck up it would actually take for that to happen.
For him to spill coffee on another Macbook Air.
Would you rather toss John Runyan’s salad or watch Magic Johnson bang Mrs CB?
BIG JON BABY!
You’ve already seen black guys with Ms. CB up on the ML.
Do you think Josh Innes will survive in this town? Or will he crash after a year?
I don’t think he’ll “be the next Howard Stern.” Beyond that I think he sticks around for a while, at least as long as Bloom is here. But he’s got to cool it with being a hot head 24-7. It’s too much. Pick your spots.
I am a 62 year old retired guy who reads you everyday do you think I’m your oldest readwr
No, but good to hear. There are a few who are up there.
Why you so damn cute?
What did you do to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Villanova’s NCAA finals win over Georgetown yesterday?
Bowling for Soup.
Any Netflix recommendations?
do you ever regret sucking so much cock at nova/right now?
Sometimes, but then I just chalk it up to being “part of the experience,” you know?
Will they’re EVER be a CB app??
Maybe. Here’s the problem: a substantial portion of visits come from mobile, an app wouldn’t pay nearly the same ad revenue. Even if I charged $1 or $2, it’s a one time thing. It’s not worth it. I mean, I hate for the answer to be that simple, but it’s the truth. If I can figure out a way to have an app generate at least almost as much revenue, then I’ll do it, because I do think the long tail is that it keeps people reading more and reading everywhere. But the site’s so good on mobile (I think the responsive design is really good), so it’s not like it’s any harder to read or anything. We are working on a Liberty Broadcast app for the podcasts– I think that’s a better option now.
Hey dummy, at least create an app that launches your browser straight to crossingbroad.com. Do you know how fucking annoying it is to type in your long ass web address?
Plus, when I’m fucking bored I just swipe through my apps randomly until something catches my eye. A shortcut to CB.com on my app list would be clicked many times.
You realize you can do this on your own on an iPhone right?
Bookmark it you idiot
or you can add a shortcut on your home screen…then it’ll look like an app.
Save the website in your browser. Then you just type the letter C and crossing broad should come up. Good Luck…
Do you care that your school screwed over Temple and most of the city hates you? Seriously where’s the fun in that?
No. If you’re talking about keeping them out of the Big East, that’s BS. Jay, more than anyone, has gone out of his way to embrace Big 5, often at the detriment to Nova, playing lower RPI teams in needlessly difficult environments, often going up against friends (him and Dunphy are close) who know him well. Hate Rollie, but don’t hate Jay.
Who sings lead on The Beatles – Besame Mucho?
What are you up to this weekend?
Probably a little Home Depot, maybe a little Bed Bath and Beyond. Sadly, I’m not joking.
Are you going to have enough time?
Jim is actually quite terrible. I remember when Frosty wrote on here and he did much better. Did you offer him the job first? Did you settle for Jim? Do you defend him because the day he leaves every commenter will lay into you?
I like Ryan, but he had a good job and I think this would’ve been too much of amjump.
What happened to PSMFO64?
Why do my posts await moderation?
Chill out. I’m getting to it.
Tit or ass man ?
A. I. Mentioned the other week, that he has interest in the business side of basketball. Do you think ( other than a PR position) will Allen Iverson ever get a front office gig?
No. Shit, no, man.
Where will I find employment?
Do you think the comments on this site was one of the reasons brace got canned ?
No, but I suppose it didn’t help?
How do I get a job with crossing broad? @chuckles152
Present to me a plan how you’ll be able to pay for yourself almost immediately.
Be honest : better show–innes bruno —mayes bruno—–I think not even closee—bruno mayes
Totally different. But Bruno and Mayes is one of my all-time favorite shows.
I agree. Bruno and Mayes worked well together. They were dynamic and feeded off each other.
Worst host on local sports radio? I got Paul jolivitz by a mile–honey able mention from Steven a smith light–phil Mt airy
Phil From Mt. Airy
where is most hilarious place you ever took a shit?
Emergency shit at Farley rest stop on way back from the shore one time. So bad had to turn around and go back to shore… without my boxers and socks.
-How bad does Amaro look by not signing Tomas and going into the season with by far the worst outfield in baseball?
– With MAG being removed from the 40 man roster, another Amaro miss, does he get fired before the end o season or after?
He’ll get fired on October 6.
Are you impressed that I came to Philly less than 2 years ago and changed sports talk this much ? I executed my plan to perfection. Got my time slot and made myself a name.
I am, actually.
does your obsession with me cause problems for your alleged heterosexual relationship?
It’s the commenter’s obsession, not mine.
What do you think about Ben Davis? Phillies went from best in the league to worst in or hearts as a whole organization.
star wars or star trek?
Star Wars. Not even close.
star trek i says
ever watch any sort of rugby?
i would be really interested on a post about how you got crossingbroad started. Like a real in depth post on the success and struggles that came with starting this blog that launched other blogs in the area.
Thanks for the solid work. CB is a must visit for me every day.
Thanks. That’s too self indulgent, even for me. That said… here are two interviews I did that I think tell the story pretty well: http://www.phillymag.com/articles/hating-kyle-scott-crossing-broad/ http://www.theintell.com/blogs/joe-mason/podcasts/joe-mason-podcast-with-crossing-broad-s-kyle-scott/html_71641b70-7445-53af-aa0f-932ee8a21147.html

Legit question, and no bullshit sarcastic answer:
Why are certain people in the public eye off limits; i.e. Former FOX29 traffic “reporter”; current WIP morning Twat; yet handles like “Sheena Parveen’s Hairy Asshole” and “Cecily Tynan’s Small Tits before She Got Big Ones” are OK?
Also, why are the first two media types I mentioned off limits, but people like Pukemon (RIP); the girl that got proposed to at McFadden’s on the bar; and The Penn girl’s Lacrosse (or whatever the fuck sport it was) are fair game to get demolished in the comments?
Because that first group became so over the top that every comment section turned into something ridiculous. Like, things are funny to a point until it’s just lame. Pukemon stuff and posts about other people come and go once and by the time I realize comments got out of hand, it’s usually over anyway.
I just LOLed at Pukemon (RIP)…
It was nice a nice touch to pay respects.
I’d offer my services to cover UFC….it’s a big sport with people in the 18-34 range. Luckily I’m still in that range for another year and a half.
Eh. “Cover” to me means boring, traditional coverage. What we do is different, and requires a familiarity on behalf of reader. Other than one-off post, we cant do UFC. Same with wrestling, and soccer (EPL).
I respectfully disagree, plus there’s a plethora of gyms in the area that would pay to advertise on your site. I meant more on the lines of previewing events (multiple times a month), plus you have the bonus of having many MMA fighters in the Philadelphia area, and I know through friends who would do interviews/podcasts.
I’m tell you, it’s the wrong niche for what we do. And bars are hard enough to work with, I can’t even imagine calling on gym owners.
you’re a no talent ass clown
^ Mikey Miss, is that you?
Why sooooooo many ads now
Premium subscription anyone?
Will the CB Golf League continue in 2015?
I doubt it. Too much logistics and stuff with no benefit. I’d like to, yes, but honestly don’t want to be bothered to even do the little bit I had to do last year.
So, are they going to bring back Hop Back Amber to CBP this year? Cause if they don’t, that will suck….
Our man Lee Porter going down to CBP this weekend to put together his annual beer list. We’ll have a post about it when he has it.
Are you bisexual?
No, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t want to just once see Chase’s Utley.
But seriously, no. Happily married.
will you be starting MUNNday morning roundup?
does your obsession with/perpetual 3 inch stiffie for the attention ho in the Midwest cause any relationship problems?
Are you excited for Phillies wine? If so, how excited on a scale from 0-12? Explain.
It’s Chadds Ford wine with a sticker and markup.
Wine from the Mid-Atlantic is straight piss water. It couldn’t hold the jock strap of West Coast wine if it wanted to.
Kyle, little game of would you rather:
Take a shower with your mom?
Take a bath with your dad, but you have to sit bobsled style.
Who sits in back?
Dad is definitely the driver.
Oh, well then bobsled.
best western? “unforgiven” i saYS
Who has a bigger penis, you or Jim?
Just gonna go ahead and say me.
Have you thought about hiring a ‘Director of Business Development’ or some simialr fancy titled employee for this site? They could run events, manage your ads, and more. I think someone like this could really expand your brand.
Yes. But it’s two employees away. Another writer and then maybe someone like that.
I agree with that. But when that happens, you become full time business director, focus only on growing the site and less content needs to come from you.
True. I can’t write content all day every day forever. Not that I want to not do it, but eventually the site will be best with a team of (talented) writers and I can pick my spots more.
Kyle, did Jim ask permission to no longer be lame? Or was it some sort of promotion?
Also, Just wanted to let you know, I trust you much more now that I know your last name isn’t Scott. My high school english teacher always said, “Never trust a man, with two first names.”
Never trust a man who calls you chief or boss either.
Marry, F, Kill: Steve Keeley, Sean Brace, Alexandra D’Addarioioioio

How come you don’t work on the weekends?
We do more posts on weekends than we get credit for
What ever happened with the Buzzonbroad/CB merger or partnership. I remember listening to the podcast/radio a few posts by their founder and then nothing. So…what happened?
Dude bailed because he was way more interested in finding a get rich quick scheme than writing about Philly sports.
I have another idea: Philly Sports Media Quiz with Innes.
Maybe you can get this one by appealing to Bloom’s ego. He claims Innes has become Mr. Philadelphia, or something, because he bought tickets to Eagles and Flyers game or whatever. Great. Let’s see what he knows.
My contention is that Innes sucks BECAUSE he knows nothing. His shtick is what it is, hate or love it. Same goes for Angelo, MM, Gargano, etc. Nobody is going to have a 100% approval rating. But being an informed host with an opinion worthy of respect is a prerequisite for the job Innes has.
To his credit, he seems well versed on sports and most things.
Thoughts on UPenn ever bringing D1 college hockey back to Philly? Would be awesome to have an intimate 5000-6000 person arena in center city.
Always thought Ed Snider should have spearheaded that and split a CC arena w/ the Phantoms, but I guess Eddie wasn’t slick enough to think of that.
– shrug –
Ever considered getting more into the fantasy aspect of sports? I notice you have a deal with DraftKings, but ever think about having a branch-out from your main blog and feature articles or picks to help feed this growing market. Fantasy sports betting is setting itself up for some huge success
We’d like to do a daily fantasy podcast.
Something you’re looking to do internally?
As part of Liberty.
1. Do you actually know who the original Bob is
2. How many different IP addresses have submitted comments as Bob
3, Something gay
2) Haven’t checked
What ever happened with the bzzuonbraod CB merger or partnership. I remember listening to the podcast radio a few posts by their founder and then nothing. So…what happened?
Awhile ago someone asked you your favorite sports talk radio lineup (or something to that effect). You said at the time that you needed more time to think about it, but I never saw a follow up answer.
So… what would be your favorite sports talk radio lineup?
I will, eventually, do a longer mailbag and answer it.
what happened to your buzz on broad affiliation?
What is the vision of Liberty Broadcast? Or rather, what would you deem the ultimate success for that project?
To have a network of independent sports and similar demo podcasts, regionally or nationally, and be the go-to platform for that sort of thing. I think we’re off to a good start. I think podcasts are where blogs where 6-7 years ago. I want Liberty to be the ad sales rep for major shows.
Did you fix the Innes first round matchup so that he would go up against MM? I actually feel like you are answering honest right now and would probably believe you.
What’s your go-to beer?
Depends on season. I like Flying Fish stuff a lot. Allagash White is the no-brainer when just want a good beer that’s easy to drink.
I miss hearing Ant suck off his guest in the afternoon. Can’t wait until he’s sucking off guests in the AM on a different station. Same boring show, different boring time and location!
Are you as excited as I am?
Is there a post that you’ve made on CB that you since regret putting out there?
Probably. Not knowing the particulars of MLB’s waiver claims a few years ago backfired. There are probably others. The one about the woman who wrote about Ryan Madson’s wife, and when I questioned her credibility since she had basically been a fugitive at one point, her story turned out to be true and the woman is now a good blogger who I link to sometimes. They were reasonable questions I raised, but she wound up on Mike’s show defending herself. I feel bad.
THis is aTest of Rhea HUghes suckdom
1. How many people write in real email addressees in the comments thing. I never have. Why is it a requirement?
2. Be real here. Who is your favorite and least favorite commenter? Be real, for once.
1) Few. Extra step to prevent bots really.
2) Answered last time: Candy From The Oak. Least– all the fake Bobs. Let the man be.
Really? Could a bot say anything that was worse?
Do you have sources telling you that Gargano is going to the morning, or is that, like your opinion, man?
People are hinting that he’ll be morning and last time I got any concrete word it certainly hadn’t been ruled out. It was, at the very least, being considered.
What do you think about how Bloom and Nahaggian run their stations with all the turnover and firings program changes? They both look absolutely like a joke right now.
You have to fire people. I think both have probably made programming mistakes. But I’ve never heard anything nice about Bloom, and my one encounter with him reinforced that. I’ve spoken to Matt and he’s a decent human being as far as I can tell. So I respect the latter much more.
Do you think there is a chance that John Middleton takes over the Phillies? Do you think he’s the right guy for the job?
Actually, I kinda do. But I need more POWERS.
Do you snowboard? We can get ya started.
Never skied or snowboarded. Hate the cold.
Cold is the worst. But I work for a snowboard manufacturer and love boarding. My life makes no sense
How much money do you make on these type of posts? Looking at the number of comments it seems like its a money grab. Jim yesterday, Kyle today.
I also second the local news personality bracket. Get on it.
It’s not by the post. I really can’t quantify it. It’s the sum total of the page views, surveys, t-shirt sales, direct ads, etc. No one post spikes the needle.
Love the site and think you and Jim do a great job. As someone who just started a podcast with a buddy of mine, what advice would you give us? We are enjoying podcasting so far, but we would like to make money somewhere down the line.
Send me an email hard to answer here
Will CB be endorsing any of the mayoral candidates? This seems like a Milton Street kinda crowd.
Mike Jerrick. Shit would get weird.
I feel as if you’ve been in the hot seat enough lately….how about you ask me anything.
What kind of music are you into? See any good bands lately?
I watched Jimmy Buffett’s live show from Key West last night. I like everything, mainstream altermative. Green Day. And Buffett. I like Buffett a lot.
I took my wife to see Bruno Mars and Justin are the last two concerts I went to. They were both actually quite good. Best part? Running into John Clark in the tunnel trying to catch a few minutes of JT.
Have you ever been in a fist fight? what was the outcome?
Yep. I broke my wrist… when the guy punched me. True story.
Do you think you’re a good journalist?
Personally I believe you have a lot to learn.
I think I’m good blogger.
Need more DraftKings contests for CrossingBroad readers? I enjoyed taking all your money in 1st place last season one week. Maybe add some for baseball while we wait for Football season?
Also, should do a mini golf challenge this summer at the shore? Might go better then the actual golf challenge from last year?
We’ll have more.
How bad did you want to punch Andy Bloom after he called you a fraud and said you ruined people’s lives?
I was pretty mad. Not because he called me out – I was happy to get into it with him – but because he bailed, which meant that people listening who didn’t know about the site, thought he said something that was even remotely accurate. He bailed because everything I wrote about his station was right. I lost my cool and wish I hung up after that instead of giving Josh five minutes to patronize me while I was in a daze.
Personally, it was better you stayed on… Otherwise they would have gotten what they wanted. Staying on showed that it different affect you (even though it dazed you apparently), and that Innes wasnt affecting you either
What is Johnny Marks gonna do now with Brace out?
Pure speculation: Be a part of a show with Anthony.
Not joking, I’ve heard this was the case from someone who knows someone.
Believe it or not, don’t care. Just saying.
Hey, where’d everybody go?
Do you still play any ice hockey?
Haven’t in a while, but want to get some open hockey in.
whats your favorite golf course in the area?
I suck, and Fairways is close to my house and I can play it in 3-4 hours and have fun, so Fairways. It’s obviously not the nicest, it’s just the most enjoyable to play until I stop sucking.
Whatever happened to Princess Sass?
She got sick and married. I think. Wish her the best, because I think she was really sick.
What happen with u n drinkers
Nothing. Main contact left and their campaign ended. Nothing bad. I honestly didn’t want to keep doing quizzos.
Candy – Drinkers realized they were losing patrons because CB is full of neckbeards and chinstraps from delco. No girl wants to be near dirtbags like us.
They had no problems when we packed a few quizzo nights… and had a few clunkers.
Remember that thing from a little while ago where you were going to compete against us in a series of challenges that we would propose? What ever happened to that?
I’m really bad about being proactive with stuff.
How much does Mike Miss make a year?
At least $500k, I think. Maybe more.
That is a disgrace…
Can you get out of the figure four leg lock?
How big do you think this site can really get? Do you think you are pigeon-holed into just Philly or could it legitimately ever compete with deadspin?
Site I think could expand within Philly. Be a little more comprehensive. Sports and more. It would always have to keep it’s voice, but I do think it could be more of a media outlet than just a sports blog. Need money to get there. The podcasts is something I’d be more interested in expanding outside of Philly.
What’s the closest you ever came to being sued?
I literally can’t say.
Is a RIP brace post coming?
Why? He’s still around.
Remember when we kept predicting early tournament exits for Nova, and you wrote an entire post telling us how WE couldn’t objectively analyze Villanova basketball. When is the post coming out how about how I was right when I said your head was too far down Jay Wright’s pants to objectively analyze anything villanova basketball related?
Why am I banned? Email me. Please.

I love the podcast network but the infrequent updates can get frustrating. I realize you, and the Iggles Pod guys and everybody are busy but it seems a little unfair to have so many podcasts – or at least the ones I look forward to listening to- that don’t update regularly.
Are there any updates coming down the pipe or are things going to continue as is?
I hear you. Trying really hard to do one weekly.
Glad to hear this.
How does your wife deal with you looking at your phone all the time or computer to see all the new and relevant info out there? Is she into sports like you?
She’s not really, but I try not to overdo it. That said, she knows more posts means more money… even if I’m playing an air violin in pajama pants on a Tuesday night.
Do you think you will ever need to get some sort of funding to get to the next level? Also people mention making money from page views… No money actually comes in just from page views right? It is clicking the ads themselves right?
A lot of the ads are impressions. And yes, I think eventually we will. If not, I’ll get it on my own.
So, it’s obvious that you love The Coggin Toboggan, the preeminent Philadelphia sports satire blog, as much as the next guy. Of course you do, who doesn’t.
My question is, if David Coggin took a swing at you, do you think he’d knock you out or just daze you a bit?
His site is funny.
There you go people, if you don’t know about it.
Ever send a dick pic
To your mom, yes I have.
Great site and great reads. CB is a daily visit for me, multiple times per day. Keep up the great work.
1) Wawa or Sheetz?
2) Coke or Pepsi?
3) Foreigner or Journey?
Are you interested in covering Philly media, just not Philly sports media.
Like getting the overall radio ratings (they are available) to see how MM and Angelo stack up against everyone else.
And to do local TV ratings. I know 6ABC destroys but like what was the audience for Good Day Philly when what’s her face was doing the traffic updates that your IPhone can do.
Yeah, maybe the sort of thing we could do if Crossing Broad expands into something bigger.
Favorite and least favorite beat writers for each team. Don’t include the stupid ones…the real ones for real outlets.
P.S. I genuinely dislike you but I’m bored at work and this has been entertaining.
Only a few more:
I’ll do this as longer mailbag. Honestly don’t know.
Why do you devote so much time to Philly Sports radio?
Just a bunch of wind bags making noise.
People are interested in it. I’d argue sports fans spend more time listening to radio, watching TV, reading about sports than actually watching sports. So those people are interesting to people.
Do your wife and/or any other close family members read the blog? Have you ever had any of them come to you horrified and appalled about some of the insane stuff in the comments section or the amount of times you’ve written about the attractiveness of male athlete/coaches?
Most of them do, yes. No I think they all get it. I can’t write and think “oh, so and so is reading this.” They get that I’m trying to be entertaining.
What offer would you be looking for from the Sharks on Shark Tank for this blog?
$400k for 25%– values site at $1.6 million. But they’d never be bothered with something like this, because unlike most of business in front of them, it has a ceiling. It’s never going to be a $100 million business. That said, I think it can be a notable local media company that could make some investor and me very good money.
Further, how much money do you value your blog at?
Trashier part of Delco – Colwyn or Darby Borough?
Anything below Baltimore Pike, respectfully. I grew up near Baltimore Pike.
Damn, just had to call out Colwyn
When I lived in Jersey long ago I used to be buds with Mike Gill (97.3 FM) when he was working for an alt rock station. I’ve never heard his show for any length of time; was wondering what your impressions of him are as a broadcaster?
He’s had me on his show a few times. Never really listen because he’s on in South Jersey.
Been reading this site since the beginning , keep it up. That said, what ever became of 3 finger Lenny and iron balls mcguinty?
Good friend of mine runs Toxic Network podcast. they just did an article on him at NJ.com.
How legitimate is Conn School of Broadcasting ?
What did you like more ? radio or TV ?
No idea. It’s fine, I suppose.
I didn’t go to Conn, if that’s what you’re asking.
Kyle, be honest… would you even be mad if you found out Pat the Bat porked your wife? Or would you kinda just write it off because you know… that shit just kinda happens.
I’d have to laugh at the irony. Like, yep, I probably had this coming.
Good place to end it. Pat the Bat.
would you date a girl if she seemed to delco? I met this girl and shes really nice, but she reminds me of a lot of girls I went to high school with (who represent everything I hate about delco). I want to like her but I am afraid she is secretly like them. please respond.
If offered, would you accept a gig hosting a weekly Sports Radio talk show?
I wore that wolf shirt yesterday
What’s with this damn radio thing that pops up every time I enter the site? It slows down the page and is annoying as shit.
Another Bloom ruse to get ratings? Telling Morning Show audience all morning Bobby Orr coming on to wish Parent Happy 70th in last half hour. They said he did not call in and did not know how to reach him. Big scam? Just happened to be a remote and kept plugging some stupid hockey store.
When golfing on Saturday I failed to reach the ladies tees with my drive and my boys made me play the rest of the hole with my junk out.
Is it possible they’re gay and is this a violation since there were other people on the course?
You guys gonna get an app soon? That’d be one hot PC of ace.
