    You stay classy, Marty.

    Less than 1 week removed from his suspension, and today Marty again demonstrates why he's such a class act.

    Anyone who listens to their show even somewhat regularly probably knows Marty is riding RAGBRAI. He's also apparently been sucking up to Jerry Crawford (owner of the Energy) because Crawford is bringing an RV along the route and Marty was hoping to stay with him every night. Well today in the middle of their show they started talking about RAGBRAI and Miller tells Marty he has some bad news. Apparently he (Miller) was talking to Crawford over the weekend and RAGBRAI came up. Crawford started talking about the RV and listing all of the people he had invited to stay with him. Marty was not one of them. After hearing this, Marty sounded a little hurt and I almost started to feel bad for him. Especially when he said, "oh well that's ok..." but any pity quickly vanished when he continued "... I guess we won't be doing ANY Energy promos next year." Then he went on a minute-long rant about all the hype they'd given the Energy, and blah blah this and blah blah that. He ended by saying "I hope they get a flat tire the first night." What a class act that guy is.

    IF, and that's a BIG IF, Jerry Crawford was ever considering inviting Marty in the first place, that consideration probably went right out the window after last week's incident. "Hello, Bad Publicity? Hi, this is Jerry Crawford and I was wondering if you'd like to stay in my RV with me over RAGBRAI."

    Re: You stay classy, Marty.

    Did you catch earlier in the show when he went on-and-on about d how great Southern Iowa cable was, seconds before Miller started a DirecTV studio promo for a satellite TV distributor ?

    Something tells me Marty isn't anywhere near the crowd that Jerry Crawford hangs around with...

    WHAT?!?!? Marty and Miller did a promo?!?!? I can't believe it!!! I thought they just had Vicky Stogdill on Mondays because sports fans want to listen to some lady yap about her stupid store. Every week.

    Do you realize that you're giving him exactly what he wants by posting this nonsense here?


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    I honestly think a lot of that banter is written into the show. Marty and Crawford are pretty tight. Marty does all the radio for him. I think it's not as big as a deal as some might think.

    Exactly, some people just don't get it..... Such as the time M&M pretended like they didn't believe or know Bob Costas was in town, even though KXNO had been running Costas promos for a month. It was hilarious, yet caller after caller would call in to tell them it was true.

    Re: You stay classy, Marty.

    If people aren't posting about some Marty "controversy" then they (M&M) feel they have failed. Imagine the rating the show got last Thurs? People that don't even normally listen tuned in I am sure to see what Marty would say after his suspension. Heck, the suspension was probably a sham from the beginning for ratings, who knows?

    I remember that. I'm sure it's in the 'Best Of Marty & Miller' archive. Funny stuff.

    And I also have to agree with you that the only reason to tune in to KXNO is for Rome and M&M.

    Re: You stay classy, Marty.

    The banter is not scripted, no way.

    And folks, you have to realize, it's entertainment.

    M&M are darn good at it, too.

    Miller, If you could get a good Cyclone voice on your show like Deace was I would love to see you replace the Morning crew since I can't get KXNO while I'm at work.
