Episode 65 : Sports Night!

We talk sports. Well, sport. One in particular. But we talk about it a lot. It’s awesome.


We also discuss some pretty serious feminist issues. Some tied to sports. Some not.


Also, a lot of stupid stuff.

    I would just like to point out that while Tony mentioned “derby” in an quiet asside at some point in the past. You don’t make it actually clear that you’re talking about Roller Derby until William says, “I don’t know how much our listeners know about Roller Derby.” Up until that point, you’ve left it for the listener to just figure it out if they didn’t happen to hear Tony mumble the word “derby” once some four episodes ago or something.

    Just saying.

    I have friends who have done roller derby. I would be interested in working out with a derby team, but I don’t think I’m actually into the idea of playing.

    DC isn’t doing very well when it comes to the womens.

    Toe tags are an actual thing that are actually used.

    Don’t ask me how I know.

      On the yelling pineapple at people who are about to sneeze.

      It’s not just “pineapple”. It’s whatever the first person who does that to you says that becomes your thing.

      For me it’s either saying “asparigus” five times fast or it’s saying “Nekked Purple Cows” slowly and deliberately.

    Body issues.


    Not going there.

    Nice intro this week, loved the bird song. Too bad those idiots kept talking over it. :p

    William’s screwing with Tony? It’s the first sign of the coming apocolypse! WAHHHHH!!!!

    Home team? What home team was this again? I can’t remember last week any more and I’m too lazy to go back to try looking it up. Ooooh, you’re taking about roller derby. Seesh, why didn’t you say so at the beginning? Side note: I think Tony’s description of roller derby has gotten me interested in attending a match/bout/whatever.

    A Justice League movie? Ehhh. I’d probably see it, but I won’t be raising my hopes for it to be any good.

    MIB3: Chocolatized dairy doesn’t sound like all that bad of a line.

    Happy Holidays: Due to some people’s asshatery, there isn’t one safe phrase to use for every one. Though I guess amoung normal folk I tend to use “Happy Holidays” and then switch over to specific phrases for other people based on what I know of them.

    Blue Claw: Congrats on being married.

    Toe tags: Maybe on the handle of the drawer they’re put into? Or perhaps it just gets tied to next closest/convenient appendage.

    Hospital charts: I think the clipboard style medical chart hung on the end of the hospital bed is probably something held over from an earlier time (like WWII or 50’s/60’s maybe). And Hollywood keeps using that style similar to the way computer programmers still use the image of a 3.5″ floppy disk as a save icon.

    Subscribe to commnets: If the Producer uses a RSS feed reader of some sort (i.e. Google Reader); she can simply subscribe to TMTH‘s Comment Feed. Otherwise you’ll probably need to find/install a plugin to allow her to subscribe to all the comments.

      Yep, I finally got my google-fu mojo back online and figured it out. Makes it so much easier to stalk you all. 🙂

    William – yes, I was just looking for a general polite thing to say to people that I really don’t know (and probably will never know if they are offended), like the store clerk, or someone who holds a door open for you.

    The cruise was great. I was on it with my brother because it was a family vacation; just me, my two brothers, and our parents. Why is that weird?

    Derby – sounds interesting, I’m thinking I may like to see it sometime.

    Body image – I try not to think about it much. I am especially aware of it when I spend time eating or walking around with my mom. She’s a heavier person, and when I have to slow down how fast I walk because she can’t keep up, I remind myself that this is not what I want to become. I also notice that I mentally judge when I see obese people making unhealthy decisions, like waiting to take the elevator up one floor, or stuffing their face with a super sized McDonald’s meal (particularly outside of normal meal times). I probably do this to make myself feel better about my food and activity decisions. I then waffle between thinking “this is why America has a problem” and wondering what extenuating circumstances there might be for their behavior (a healing sprained ankle makes walking and stairs difficult, or that at 4pm, that value meal is the first food they’ve eaten all day) and then consider the likelihood that there are extenuating circumstances vs laziness and level of willpower. I’m not sure if this type of contemplation makes me a typical female in terms of how “obsessed” I am about my body, or at the far end of either end of the spectrum.

    Body types in China – I would have thought that the men would have a very specific ideal body because they would need to compete to earn “scarce” female affection. Does that surprise anyone else?
