Chad Benson, host of “The Chad Benson Show,” fills in for Jim, who will be back on Tuesday. Today, Chad explains what the loss of Kobe Bryant means to the people of southern California before he and Greg dive into three crazy martinis. First, they react to the news that former National Security Adviser John Bolton apparently wrote in his forthcoming book that President Trump ordered him to hold off on releasing military aid to Ukraine until Ukraine launched the investigations he wanted. Is this a major wrinkle in the impeachment saga, a book-selling gimmick, or something in between? They also discuss the Des Moines Register endorsing Elizabeth Warren and the Union Leader in New Hampshire backing Amy Klobuchar and ask whether endorsements really matter anymore. While on the topic they also explore whether Warren still has a chance or whether her campaign is out of gas but media insist on propping her up. Finally, they get a kick out of a Fox 5 poll in Washington, showing the nation’s capital is either bored by the impeachment trial or just not interested in it.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Kobe Bryant Dead at 41

 

NBA legend Kobe Bryant, along with four others, died in a helicopter crash Sunday in Calabasas, CA. The tragedy was first reported by TMZ and is now being confirmed by local media. The LA Times reported that no homes or other bystanders were impacted by the crash. Bryant is survived by his wife Vanessa and four children.

Bryant played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, retiring in 2016. He won five NBA championships, was an 18-time All-Star, and NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2008.

Back to the usual format day with good, bad, and crazy martinis. Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Sen. Perdue for pointing out how stunningly weak the Democrats’ charge of obstruction of Congress against President Trump truly is. They also hammer the media for horribly biased coverage of Monday’s pro-second amendment rally in Virginia, including CNN’s assertion that gun rallies are fertile ground for white supremacists to recruit new members. And they have fun with the New York Times ending its insanely hyped endorsement process by backing two different candidates before Jim explains why they probably did it.

Who knew you could have so much fun talking about Elizabeth Warren? Join Jim and Greg as they wade into Warren’s accusation that Bernie Sanders told her two years ago that a woman couldn’t get elected president. They also shake their heads as Warren promises to cancel a lot of student loan debt on her first day in office without ever involving Congress. And they preview tonight’s final Democratic debate before the voting in Iowa and address the liberal concerns that there isn’t enough diversity on stage.

Well, here I am in Myrtle Beach again, ready for another weekend of drunken debauchery watching NFL playoff football with my old friends from Raleigh. We’ve been doing this for several years now. We also watch manly action movies, eat lots of meat, and leave the toilet seats up! That that, ladies! More

I understood the way it was many years ago, having one wild-card game for each conference. After all, there were six divisions and to have single-elimination playoffs you need a power-of-two number of teams. So two wild-card games plus the division winners got the number of teams in the playoffs up to eight, and the […]

Well, I’m here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with one of my old friends from Raleigh. We spent the past few days watching bowl games (Yay, Clemson!). Now, you might think our wives would object to not having their husbands around on New Year’s Eve. More

Tomorrow is the last football game of Notre Dame’s season. Go Irish! Beat Iwo State. Win, or lose I watch each ND game from start to finish. A love affair that began decades ago. Here’s to Angelo Bertelli, Notre Dame’s first Heisman Trophy winner. More

A while back, I posted about two female astronauts who performed the first all-women spacewalk. I noted while it was cool, it was hardly a significant advancement for women (like the right to vote).

It has been decades since I attended a sporting event, or even watched more than a few minutes of one on TV. Yet I retain interest. Not long ago, I saw an anthology of trick plays in baseball, and besides being charmed by their cleverness, I wondered if these used to be so common that […]

Welcome back from Thanksgiving break! Grab a stool as Jim and Greg dissect good, bad, and crazy martinis today. First, while Greg laments another Ohio State win over Michigan, they love the powerful pro-life story involving OSU’s star running back. They also slam Michael Bloomberg for saying taxes on poor people are good because then poor people won’t make as many bad choices for themselves. And they roll their eyes as LGBT activists complain about the absence of same-sex romances in Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies. You’ll also enjoy their unvarnished analysis of the Hallmark movies as they currently exist.

Go see it! You won’t be disappointed. Just watch your speed departing the theater parking lot.

My only complaint: while at a Thanksgiving get-together, I mentioned that I loved this movie, some car snob, know-it-all kept talking about how it wasn’t the “real” story. Then we all had to hear the real story. Jerk.

Thanksgiving weekend is one of the best times to watch college football. Throw the polls out the window – when rivals play, anything can happen! I’m in the StadCave, the big TV fired up for Clemson vs. USC, Michigan vs. Ohio State, and Georgia vs. Georgia Tech. Then there’s a new round of games 3:30-4:00, […]

The Buffalo Bills made a rare Thanksgiving appearance today, playing the Cowboys in Dallas. Before the game CBS aired a segment with former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, I guess to show all the things he’s thankful for despite some setbacks in life. So in the course of this we got to see: More
