Last year around this time, we took a week off because we were at the beach. This year… not so much. This year, Sergio Garcia gets ripped into… and Lemke starts a discussion that left us with one phrase… to be continued.

Another week, another hour of insanity. No Buzzerbeaters this week because we came up with about a million stupid reasons not to do them. Just enjoy.

With the NFL Draft gone, Swafford and Lemke take a few pot shots at the teams that did their best work by not soiling themselves while killing off the hopes and dreams of their fan bases.

With the NFL Draft starting Thursday, the guys take to the pre-draft hype as they always do: Not by talking about the teams that are primed to improve on Thursday, but the teams that will cripple themselves before Friday’s second round begins.

We’re back from our two week (unintentional) break and we’re back to baseball. This week, Swafford and Lundy talk about the best moments of the season so far and what we can expect in the NBA’s and NHL’s playoffs.
We also want to send our thoughts and prayers to everyone in Boston in light of today’s events. We love you guys.

Each year, your friends at Audibly Offensive Radio spend the weekend before WrestleMania breaking down the card and talking about what works for them and what falls flat. This year, our old friend Kevin Jeffers (on Twitter @jevinkeffers) joins us for a great breakdown of the card and what we hope are some of the surprises we’ll see on April 7

Lemke and Lundy think they’re doing the show by themselves this week, mainly because Swafford’s mic died on him 15 minutes before the show started, but everything went off without a hitch… until they started talking about the NCAA Tournament.

This week, Lemke misses the show because he went to WWE Monday Night RAW in Pittsburgh, leaving Swafford and Lundy to break down the NCAA Tournament, NFL Free Agency and the NL East. And by breakdown, we mean THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT like only Swafford and Lundy can do.

Seriously, who let us do this crap for five years? You’d think we’d run out of things to talk ab…. yeah, never mind. This week the guys talk some NL Central, the Miami Heat’s streak and the start of March Madness.

Over the past few seasons, the National Basketball Association has, for one week, celebrated Latin and Hispanic heritage with Noche Latina, the NBA’s tribute to the contributions that Latin players and the Latin community have on the game of basketball.
I am 100% fine with that. I love it. I’m the guy screaming to the top of my lungs that Roberto Clemente’s #21 should be retired throughout baseball along with Jackie Robinson’s 42. I have zero problem with the NBA wanting to thank these communities for their support.
I have EVERY problem with how the Hell they do it.
Rant. Mode. On.
Okay. So you’re going to honor the Latin community by putting either Los or El in front of teams names in cities with high Latino populations?
Los Bulls? You do realize that Los Toros would be the correct way to do that instead of your half-assed attempt at trying to appeal to “non white people.”
Let’s not EVEN get me started on what they’ve done with the Knicks jerseys.
Nueva York? We’re so damn lazy that we’re just replacing the word “new”?
Please, do not misinterpret any of this as a disagreement toward the NBA wanting to honor these communities or me being racist in any way. Anyone that knows me knows that the only race of people I hate are stupid people… and they come in all shapes, sizes, genders, creeds and colors.
… and apparently… they all work for the National Basketball Association.
Just because you stick a Spanish form of the word “the” in front of a team’s name does not honor the Latin community. It’s insulting and why no one has had the conscious thought to call out the NBA on this blatant undercover racism is beyond me.
I’ll rant on just about anything I feel strongly about, but since NO ONE has touched this one yet, I was starting to wonder if it was just me that was up in arms about this… so I asked someone that this crap might offend… our graphics designer, who is from Puerto Rico.
Nope… I’m not alone on this one.
I don’t know if it’s just laziness on the NBA’s part to just throw this out there or if everyone in David Stern’s office is just that freaking clueless, but I’m a white guy from Alabama and I’m uncomfortable seeing those jerseys.
What’s worse? The almighty morons at ESPN play right along. Thursday night I was watching part of a game and as they went to commercial break, their usual NBA theme played… but it sounded like a Mariachi band playing it.
What. The. Hell?
What’s next? We’ll serve fried chicken and watermelon to everyone at Atlanta Hawks home games?
Anyone with a brain should be insulted by the carelessness the NBA has shown in their piss poor attempt to acknowledge a part of the population that pumps millions of dollars into their product. Basketball is clearly the second most popular sport in this country in the Latino population next to soccer.
Just because most of them speak English as a second language doesn’t make them stupid.
FYI… English is harder to learn than Spanish.
Okay… so the NBA wants to play that backhanded racist card. Here’s my response:
Besame el culo.

With one week before we celebrate FIVE YEARS on the air, Lemke, Swafford and Lundy breakdown the NL West this week along with the current run of the Chicago Blackhawks. Lemke and Swafford both say something that makes the other question their sanity and we throw in a little Done/Not Done.
