I still miss Joel Buschsbaum. That dude was a football genius, and nobody has come along to replace his presence on sports radio.
Back in the day, I actually won a contest to fill in for the 3 Amigos. They had an essay contest on why you should be the person that fills in while they have to leave early to their TV gig stuff.
So then the show was me and John O'Reilly. At it was actually one of my favorite gigs I ever did because instead of it just the host asking me questions, it was callers asking a wide variety of sports questions, including some sports law questions too.
So basically, you saw the call in board, and you had a sense of what they were going to ask but not really. It was a lot of fun.
This was obviously pre-blog, pre-Texans. Very, very fun. I didn't tell anyone that I was going to do it. I was surprised at hearing from people who heard it.
(Also one of the reasons I'm not too keen on radio hosts saying rude, untrue things about me on their shows. People listen to this stuff, sometimes believe it).
