    Des Moines Baseball Market

    I'm listening to Matt and Miller right now and I'm really confused right now. Are we listening to Boston sports radio or Iowa sports radio??

    Is this a Boston/Yanks market or a Cardinals/Cubs market??

    Listening to him defend Ortiz and call the list bogus, I'm wondering the same thing. Almost makes me wish Iowa had held their media day on a weekday.

    Hey Matt - the vast majority of sports fans in this town don't give a **** about Boston or New York. If we wanted to have Sox/Yanks shoved down our throats, we'd watch ESPN.

    Re: Des Moines Baseball Market

    This is one of my biggest pet peeves about Matt's shows. Admittedly somewhat because I hate the Red Sox and I am not a huge MLB fan, but he'll railroad the affiliate team of the station for Red Sox stories all the time.

    Granted, this topic was unavoidable, but it'll be part of the show where I turn the dial. I can't believe the blew an entire hour on it...when I left the office at 4 I heard it and when I was done listening to my pager traffic at about 10 to 5 they were still on it. Did it carry into the second hour?

    There is really only one valid reason to hate Michigan football, and that is the fact that we taught Notre Dame the game.

    I don't know many fans of the latter two from Iowa but that would still be better than Red Sox every day!!

    Not going to happen. I use to listen, but his attacks on CF is the reason I made a personal choice to never listen. Don't forget he was the first and foremost person promoting New England sports. This is the midwest.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    He spent about 30 seconds on Sox v Yanks today. Interview with Pollard at 4:30, etc. Brackins talk today as well. He's been very local since his return.
