The 2011 Zone Hair Band Ballad Bracket is goin to OVERTIIIIIME.  We decided three of our matchups today, but that left one of our matchups for tomorrow with White Lion's When The Children Cry tied with Saigon Kick's Love is On the Way.

Winners are:

Tesla's Love Song


Poison's Every Rose Has It's Thorn

Skid Row


Aerosmith's Angel


Night Ranger's Sister Christian


Bon Jovi's I'll Be there for you...for the record...I am not happy about this


Phil Elson sat in with us and will be back tomorrow.  We broke down the Home Run Derby won by Robinson Cano and previewed tonight's All-Star game. 






We also talked about the fat clown who almost fell out of the stands.  Unlike the tragic event in Texas last week, this was nearly a case of natural selection. 

I don't want to see anyone get hurt at a game, but when you get drunk and stand on top of a table that is 18" wide and dive for a ball you have NO shot at catching-something bad might happen. Like Dean Wormer told the fellas in Animal House..."Drunk and Stupid is no way to go through life son."

So there's that.

We also hit on baseball superstitions including a dude who brushes his teeth between innings, a guy who opened bottles with his eye sockets and Moises Alou who is known for many things including peeing on his hands to toughen the skin.  You can imagine where that conversation ended up.  Yeah. 

Join us for Hump Day...we have Phil Back for another day, Michael Bamberger of Sports Illustrated live from the British Open, a recap of the All-Star Game and a website of the week!
