Plan Your Night Accordingly: Walkoff Walk Book Club Airs at 10PM

| | Comments (4)

Please join us in the podcastosphere for the first ever Walkoff Walk book club discussion, tonight at 10PM EDT. We'll be talking about the Bruce Weber tome As They See 'Em, an in-depth look at the world of umpiring, from the bottom ranks of the minor leagues all the way up to the top folks working the World Series. If you missed your chance to pull it out of your local library, the New York Times has the first chapter available to peruse.

Some of the topics we'll be discussing include the treatment of umpires by ownership, where umpires eat when they're on the road 180 days out of the year, and how many buckets of crab fries Eric Gregg could consume in one sitting.

Prior to the radio show, I'll be watching the Bob Costas interview special on MLB Network where the little fella sits down with some of baseball's most important umpires, including Steve Palermo, Bruce Froemming and Don Denkinger. Check it out at 7PM EDT if you're interested in getting a head start on the umpire chit-chat. Or if you're over the age of 30, from St. Louis, and want a chance to yell at your television.

fuck eric gregg

You don't need to be over 30 to hate Denkinger in St. Louis. Every annoying fucking Royals fan mentions "1985." The asshole wasn't even born yet, but he's proud of 1985.

In short, fuck Denkinger.

Also, I'm almost done with the book. Now I have to go home and cram that last chapter. Will there be a test?

Is this in place of, or in addition to, the regular Furious Five?

It is the latest episode of the Furious Five Radio Show. All five questions tonight will be book-related.
