Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer will be in studio with us on Thursday. Cue up anonymous commenter with the "baseball talk is boring" post. Also, we will have the audio from the Iavaroni press conference and analyseeez of it. Joe Rogan is booked for Friday at 5. More on that later.
Andre Dawson is scheduled to join us on the show today. This is certainly a guy who has seen a great career, with fantastic statistics, diminished by the incredible jump in power numbers due to steriods. This guy should be in the HOF. Tune us in.

The all-time winningest coach in D1 college football history will be on the show today at 5:30. This guy is, in my opinion, one of the top 5 interviews in the sports world. We will talk about his life in coaching, changes in college football, re-making his staff, etc. The guy is a guaranteed lock to be wildly entertaining to listen to. 5:30 today, Bobby Bowden, don't miss it.
Also, if you never voted for the M Awards, go vote for the show and for Gary. You make the choices on this, not the publication, but the fact of the matter is that it will have to be overwhelming for us to win. Rock the vote. The voting closes this week. Here is the ballot.

STATEMENT FROM JERRY WEST REGARDING YESTERDAY'S MEDIA REPORT
Jerry West, Memphis Grizzlies President of Basketball Operations "In response to yesterday's report, I want to make it clear that I have not spoken with the Lakers organization or Kobe Bryant about a job upon my retirement in Memphis. My loyalty is to Michael Heisley, the Memphis Grizzlies organization and our fans. I have a job to do with the Grizzlies through June 30 and much to accomplish by that date." "I started my career with the Lakers and will always be a Laker fan. Mitch Kupchak and I are great friends and I would never do anything to jeopardize that friendship or to undermine his position with the Lakers. I have no plans to seek employment with ANY organization." "I hope this puts an end to any further media speculation regarding my future plans."
I think I speak for everyone when I say... who gives a crap. Just fix the Grizzlies as best you can and roll out. How about some kind of statement about the Grizzlies and how the future is bright (even if it is not)? Of course there is a statement when it is something could affect the Lakers. Is it too much to ask that anyone in a leadership position to at least gives the impression that they care more about the Grizzlies than the average fan does?

Well, I said it before tonight and I stick by it, you have to trade Pau Gasol. He is your only real chip and you have to move him for a combo of players and a pick (or picks). Then you sign a free agent PG (Mo Williams) I prefer, and then you probably get Brandan Wright (assuming Atlanta does not trade the pick or take another PF, which knowing them, they may).
You have to trade that pouting Spanish wimp and get something for him. Pau as your best player does not work. This was the chance at a star and it came up short. Scrap the "build around Pau" plan and get you some more talent in here.
There is no good way to paint this. It is a total letdown. Damn.

Also, I will attempt to sign Mo Williams of the Bucks to a contract with the Grizzlies when he joins us on Monday. NBA player and ESPN blogger Paul Shirley booked for Monday also.
Update on Don King: We have a chance but he is being tough because he is not the major promotor (it's Lou DiBella's fight to him). He has turned down interviews everywhere from New York to LA because its not "his fight". So its up in the air on that.

Defensive Rookie of the Year DeMeco Ryans will be on the Wednesday show also. Ryans (former Bama star) was second in the NFL in tackles and had more tackles than any other rookie has had in the last 20 years. He will be on at 5.
Thanks for the emails on guest requests, great ideas so far, keep them coming. Send them to me at email@example.com.

The funniest answer was submitted by a caller named Kevin who claims that the mystery line is "she did DeSagana Diop for me." What I know is if you can be speaking English and there can be a thousand different answers to what you are saying... you have really done something. Please enroll anyone you can to help us answer this incredible mystery. Let's play the game...
What is the Kentucky Derby winning jockey saying?
Also, Pirates pitcher (and former Germantown player) Paul Maholm and Kansas Jayhawks bball coach Bill Self will be on the show tomorrow.
