I’m filing this early because they’re waiting for me in makeup. I’ve been tabbed as a co-host replacement for David Pollack on today’s Pollack and Bell show. There has been no official announcement as to why Pollack is out this week. But I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s young, good looking and a former All-American at Georgia, and that’s so yesterday. Better to get the middle-aged sports writer!
Seriously, it should be fun. I’ve done quite a bit of radio over the last 28 years but this will be the first time I’m locked in a room with Mike Bell, who isn’t completely normal and proudly wears that on his sleeve, sort of like a gravy stain. No, really. Mike’s cool. I’m not worried. Besides, I’ve had all my shots. (Thank you, I’m here all week. Actually, after that line, probably not.)
I have no idea what we’re going to talk about. With Mike, you never know. But I’m soliciting topics here that you’d like to talk about.
Better yet, phone in.
No, better yet, show up! Yes, you can see Mike and I live — a rare opportunity to see me in three dimensions! Mike and I will be broadcasting from Tavern 99 on Peachtree in Buckhead from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. I’ve been told the bartenders are good looking. If you show up, please let them know I told you. Cheez-its dumped me and I’m looking for an endorsement deal.
