    i sure am glad that Radio Ron and KSR found each other….he’s a character and i think he rounds out the team nicely.

    Doesn’t Tony Vanetti look like straight outta Full Metal Jacket with that awful hair cut?

    It’s about as good as a mid-level sportscenter commercial. That’s much better than I thought it would be! I realize this is a backhanded compliment, but it’s sincere!?

    Check out this article on Michael Kidd- Gilchrist. The article does confirm that Michael does struggle with a stutter/speech impediment. Not sure why this has never been discussed before. Kid’s story just keeps getting better and better….the things has has been though and had to deal with at such a young age are truly surreal and greatly overlooked…I have made some comments about his interviews that I now wish I wouldn’t have. Honestly just thought he was a bad interview… Guy is a champion through and through

    The link to the article is:

    Here’s a preview:

    He has worked hard to overcome a childhood stutter. He grew up without a father, who was killed when Michael was 2 years old. His uncle, Darrin Kidd, died on the day Michael was going to sign his letter-of-intent to Kentucky; months later, he added “Kidd” to his name.

    “I struggled,” Kidd-Gilchrist said.

    His constant companion during the struggle was his mother, Cindy Richardson. When she wound up in the hospital before Christmas with an undisclosed ailment, Michael went to be with her. He spent one night with her in the hospital, “crying my eyes out.” He said he didn’t want to leave her and return to Lexington, but he did after Christmas.

    an obvious bite off of sportscenter, but it was pretty good.

    I liked it. Matt has such an open, innocent face. He could get away with murder.

    i want to tell you that was lame, but i know this post will not make it past your censorship. everyone has these thoughts, but they know they won’t make it past your censorship. you control who makes it on your board, but everyone knows who you censor. i like the ad, but too bad, this won’t make it due to your censorship

    with that said…

    KSR you are awesome. you give little guys like me a voice and you will rock on forever because you let folks like me have a voice on the air. the truth is a tool. slap nuts is also a tool with a bad dialect. i’m sure you’ll one day say…. second son… please call in…i’m tired of censoring your words like a lame duck. ….what ever. we both know sackboy will delete this

    Everyone that consistently posts on message boards has the worst critical opinions of all human beings. It’s hilarious and fortunate how irrelevant most of your (the posters) opinions are. I HATE THAT! GAY!

    It’s a fun a video, Matt. Keep doing promos like that, for sure.

    13- very uplifting and useful… You knock dialects yet type like you’re drunk. I don’t know why people don’t use the critical part of their mind for serious matters…. you want to seriously judge callers for a radio show? Lol you’re worried about censorship on this site? Lol hopefully u care as much about real censorship of info on big matters….I could steer u towards other matters more worthy of your critique then this. But that being said if this is where u want to take your stand then feel free

    But you come off as a grumpy malcontent. A grumpy dumb malcontent really

    I love some Radio Ron!!!!! How he didn’t win that contest is beyond me…(mostly male audience going ga ga over a girl I guess). However, it is clear that Radio Ron was the REAL winner, as I hear and see from him all the time on this sight and I cannot even remember the “winner’s” name…#JohnShortFortheY

    Even though Radio Ron, Will Chambers, and Avery Browder all were better (in the competition) than me, I’m popular than them and won fair and square.
