Del Frisco Kingmaker

Just because you’ve been a regular at Del Frisco’s doesn’t mean you’re too good for Deitsch. Yes you made a star out of previously shrill voiced Licata but Deitsch made a star out of you. So be nice!

One of the BEST, But Enough With The Whining….

I just finished listening to the May 5 episode with Katie Nolan. Another excellent episode. Jimmy always entertains, is knowledgeable and keeps it interesting. I have been a listener since he took over for Deitsch.
However, I must say that some of the whining should stop. Your take on too many streaming services is completely valid. There are too many, it costs too much and you need to make your choices. However, whining about a game (ANY) that is streaming because you can’t “flip around” is silly. This is the future, keep up or get out of the way.
My other comment is about Sal, the resident whiner and YELLER on WFAN radio overnights. What a miserable guy. He’s the same on radio as on the podcast. At least he doesn’t yell at Jimmy like he does to some of his listeners which he calls “dopes” and says “shut up and hang up”.Enough with the complaints about the wife and kid. You knew this BEFORE you got married. If it bothers you that much to be missing out on so many sports-related shows….nevermind, I won’t say it.
The interviews are fantastic. There are too many to name here which are excellent. Listen to the Aikman and Buck interviews, freakin’ awesome.
I want MORE wrestling talk and less NBA. Nobody cares about basketball, it’s dull, boring and the players today wouldn’t stand a chance against the Jordan Bulls or 90’s Knicks. They’re soft.
Anyway, thanks for reading (if you did), Jimmy. I hope you read this on your podcast.
One more thing, I get a kick out of your complaints about the LIRR, as a fellow Lawn-guy-land-uh! Keep it up!

Great weekly listen

Jimmy is definitely part on my weekly podcast listening rotation with great takes on sports media and interviews with the various talking heads. For some reason, the 4/29 pod had some technical difficulties and it sounds like Ryen Russillo is interviewing Jimmy on the phone. But even with that, the audio quality is generally way better than many other podcasts.

As for the content, I know this will fall on Jimmy’s deaf ears but my vote is for more hockey and Sal/Traina Thoughts (pop culture in particular) and less basketball and wrestling talk. Especially as we get into playoff season, to even suggest that playoff basketball is better than playoff hockey is an incredibly bad take. Playoff hockey is light years ahead of playoff pro basketball. If you want to put the excitement of hockey and basketball on the same level, do nothing to hockey and start all basketball games 100-100 with one minute to go and give everyone five fouls. Have the players run around the arena to tire them out if you want. At that point - and only at that point - basketball becomes watchable and interesting.

I know what Jimmy will say. “Look at the ratings. I’m just talking about what people are watching.” Fair point but there is a chicken and the egg thing here. I also get that it’s Jimmy’s pod and he gets to talk about what he likes. I just can’t imagine someone with such great pop culture taste (Curb, Seinfeld, Stern, etc.) could be so far off when it comes to preferring basketball over hockey.
