Fresh off a great lunch, the whole crew reunited at Tony’s place before taking off toward the beautiful Westwood One studios. We learned that Tim has never had calamari before today. Huh? How does that happen? He’ll eat Jack in the Box, but not delicious calamari?

 

Tony is demanding apologies from everyone tonight, after they all claimed the two-year, $45M offer to Manny Ramirez was an insult. And guess what? They’re now offering Manny a two-year, $45M offer.

 

Tonight’s guests:

 

Rich Lerner of Golf Network will join Tony to talk about some guy named Tiger. I hear he’s back to golf, or something like that?

 

Alvin Gentry, head coach of the Phoenix Suns will discuss Phoenix’s hot streak since he was named coach after the All-Star break.

 

David Buehler, perhaps the strongest kicker of all time, will also join us. David bench-pressed 225 pounds 25 times. That’s more than first-round offensive line prospects Michael Oher and Eugene Monroe! No kicker jokes around this guy.

It’s Fat Tuesday! And Tony has a free taco for everyone… well, almost everyone. Everyone who shows up at the studio. That means yes Dr. Drew, you get a taco. You too, T.I!

 

Tonight’s guests:

 

Kendrick Perkins, center of the Celtics will join the show and talk about the C’s potentially signing Stephon Marbury.

 

Mike Leach, coach of Texas Tech will talk about his new deal, and about Michael Crabtree’s chances in the NFL.

 

Brian Engblom of Versus will talk some hockey. How did the Flyers come back to beat the Capitals? Brian will have the answers.

 

That, and a whole bunch of updates including a topless coffee shop, the worst states for drunk driving and an Italian city that’s gone a little nuts. That’s all tonight… Into the Night!

Tony is ready to go after actually getting a full night’s sleep. He used this energy to… plant tomatoes in his yard? Hopefully he didn’t use a lot of water because of the alleged water rationing coming to Los Angeles.

 

One thing you won’t hear tonight, is ARod ridiculousness. Unlike every other garbage sports talk show, we won’t be dissecting and regurgitating that silliness. No, we’re going to talk some football baby!

 

Yes, everyone on earth got franchised today including Karlos Dansby, Darren Sproles and Tony’s personal assistant. The only difference is Tony’s personal assistant gets meatballs and gravy, the NFL guys get millions of dollars.

 

Tonight’s scheduled guests:

 

Dustin Johnson just won the PGA tournament at Pebble Beach and he’ll join us to talk about his big win.

 

Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura will stop by and will likely rip Major League Baseball. No word on whether he’s planning on bodyslamming Tony.

 

Will Jesse finally return this outfit to Tony?

Will Jesse finally return this outfit to Tony?

 

Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks will talk about his two goal performance from yesterday against Edmonton.

After a nice, long weekend (and an even longer day for Tony today) we move on ‘Into the Night’, here to talk about the great sports weekend.

 

Tim thinks he needs an energy beverage to get through the show, so he’s imbibing a concentrated version that literally has 8333% of his normal daily intake of B12. We’re not sure how he’ll handle it, but it could end up something like this.

 

 

Cory is back from a trip to Napa Valley, where he drank about 8333% of the normal daily intake of wine. Maybe he should be the one drinking the energy drink.

 

Tonight’s guests:

 

Lorenzo Romar, head coach at the University of Washington will join us to talk about the Huskies, and their big matchup with UCLA Thursday.

 

Hubie Brown, NBA analyst for ESPN and ABC will recap the All-Star Weekend and talk about the Suns’ decision to fire Terry Porter.

 

Larry McReynolds, NASCAR analyst for FOX will talk about the rainout of the Daytona 500, and the big race at Fontana this weekend. This is not what Larry did while broadcasting for Fox.
