The Golden Ticket has become a joke
« on: November 12, 2021, 11:48:08 am »
I remember when getting a Golden Ticket meant something. Mark in Hollywood, Jeff in Southfield, Rick in Buffalo - whatever you think about them - were all GT recipients.

Who do we have now?

Assleen errrrr!!!-  Kathleen in Omaha. A one trick pony whose calls are abysmal. She screams about some crappy band that I've never heard of or care about and how luscious the asses of some sports stars are and doesn't address Jim by name. OK, so maybe that's three tricks. I know she got helicoptered but I'm sure Rome will give her another ticket before the Smackoff.

I can sort of understand Matt in LA, I mean he is a prolific caller and has some rudimentary knowledge of sports. Southern Cal sports anyway. Didn't he have a Golden Ticket last year? Did Rome make him re-earn it?

But now he doles one out to John in New York?  ??? That mouth breather can barely get through a single call without hyperventilating. He's kissed  Rome's ass so much. that his lips know every nook and cranny of it.

I don't even remember James in Portland and I listen to pretty much every show. Has he even called since he got a GT?

T-Rodge's show was fun as hell for a while back there in like 2011-12 or whenever that was.  It was like Old Jungle, full of inside jokes that you only picked up on after listening for a while (e.g. referring to Vince Young as "Six", the whole hashtagBareknuckled thing, talking about rants & burns & grinds, etc).  He did that "Biiiig Fan" tournament of hot chicks, that Beckner guy doing the Friday Facts.  Those were good times for a while there, then the show either got cancelled or lost steam, I can't even remember which it was.

Chickenman 's voice sounds like you Victor. 

Paul's dog being an automatic invite is an even bigger joke.  Based on the Smackoff appearance and the auto invite i thought that Paul's dog was Jason Stewart, but Jay Stew is working for another network now so I no longer think that's him.

Still think James in Portland might be Chael Sonnen.
