Old Romey Fan synopsis
« on: May 03, 2017, 05:40:15 pm »
ok, listened to jim, back when his show first came to houston, '97???

anyway, i was stuck waiting for my grandson to get his passport renewed at the mexican consulate here in houston. stuck near downtown, waiting for his azz to get that shit done. freaking HAD an appointment then still waited 3 HRS for his azz.

anyway, while waiting...(couldn't sleep), decided to tune in to the jim rome show on 690 am. he still sounds great and his schtik remains unrivelled by none. first take i caught was the machado scenario. loved the 15 count f-bomb countdown per him being dinged. next was the dipshit who interviewed arod and jeter. jim's takes were epic. of course he repeated the 3 or 8 times for effect. same ole jimbo, yet still epic. his style is still awesome.

you may think this is some type of troll here...no way. rome's phrases and buzz words are now common expressions used by nearly all people working in the media. THINK ABOUT IT. just a shout out to 1 of my fav sports personalities.....and don't forget travis.....

ADD - he also referenced alonzo mourning and high voice guy takes, cool

I was in kansas city at the time (2004), had been listening to the Tim Grunhard Show on 610 sports which ended at 11 am.  I usually flipped to 101 the Fox to listen to classic rock, which I did on this day, but later hit the wrong button and was back on 610 sports and heard Jim reading emails about some calls. My curiosity was piqued so I listened.  A few minutes later I heard Iafrate's - Whitey's Dad Smackoff winning call and was in complete awe. Been hooked on the show ever since. Never heard any run smack like the way Iafrate ran it on Phil Mickelson in that call. Straight 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥!
