Wet my pants?

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Really? Did I just say “wet my pants” on the radio?


Well, one on-air radio interview down, hopefully many more to come. The first of anything is always so-so right? Right? Of course. This marathon trip to NYC is almost done—I’ll be back in Austin (and site stuff back to normal) by the weekend.

wet my pants. heh.

Is this month done yet? I knew September was going to be a crazy month, but I didn’t expect this. I’ve been in New York for the past week (totally unplanned), and this morning I’ll be on Buffalo’s WGR 550 Sports Radio sometime between 9a and 10a Eastern. Yeah, I know that makes no sense.

More details to come.

update: the time is confirmed now—i’ll be on-air at 9:30a et.

update: john came through and we now have audio of the interview!

So close. Soooooo close.

The NHL preseason started last week (can you believe it?!?), and I’m already seeing an uptick from our puck-loving neighbors to the North. RUWTbot had hoped to launch his invasion of Canada on Labor Day, but there were delays from my TV Listings dealer provider. The updated ETA from my pusher provider was today, so I’m pinging the crap out of the FTP server, looking for postal codes with six characters (crazy!).

Stay tuned.

A couple months ago it was a homemade t-shirt that got RUWT? an article in ESPN the Magazine. Today, it’s a blog comment that gets an article on da’ Fool.

I need to start playing the Lotto.

One reader’s response to my article earlier this week about a article on ways to kick things up a notch over at TiVo (Nasdaq: TIVO) is too good not to elaborate on.

“I’m shamefully biased, but I laugh every time I see the sports version of the My Tivo Gets Me ad,” Mark writes at the tail end of the user comments on the NewTeeVee story.

“If my Tivo really got me, it would start recording anytime the Yankees went into extra innings, a ranked college football team was about to be upset, or there was a pitcher with a no-hitter through 7.” (more)

Websites are lame.

Why open your browser when you can get the awesome power of RUWTbot on your Mac or Windows desktop?

Yeah, I couldn’t think of a reason either.

YTT25? Easy as pie. But which pie?

Hello College Football. I’ve missed you dearly. We’re back on the YouTube Tuesday train and picking the subject of today’s video was pretty simple. The only question was which video to show? Sideline reaction? Closeup of the FG being blocked? Worthy choices both, but the one below takes the cake. I mean pie.
