    Adam Dunn tricks Marty

    Ah, the Banana Phone, the good old BP. Rain delays during Reds games would never be the same without it. The average IQ of callers has to be about 70. Take, for example, this call:

    Adam from Milwaukee: Hello, Marty. Marty? Marty, this is Adam. (pause) This is Adam from Milwaukee.

    Marty Brennaman: Hey Adam, how you doing?

    Adam: I'm good, how are you?

    Marty: Good.

    Adam: Do you think Scott Hatteberg's a good player?

    Marty: Yeah. (long pause) Hello?

    Adam: Marty? Marty.

    Marty: Yes, Adam from Milwaukee.

    Adam: Do you think Scott Hatteberg's a good player?

    Marty: Do you think he's a good player?

    Adam: I think he's overrated.

    Marty: Um, who would you rather see play at first base? I can tell you're a big fan.

    Adam: I am. Um, maybe, uh, Luke Stowe?

    Marty: That would, you think that he'd be an improvement?

    Adam: I think so. Defensively.

    Steve: He's a little bit young.

    Marty: He's a little bit young, isn't he, Adam?

    Adam: Uh...no. (long, dumb pause accompanied by laughter in the booth) Is it still raining in Cincinnati?

    Marty: It's just about stopped, Adam.

    Adam: Do you have your shirt on?

    Marty: Last time I checked, I did. Yes, why?

    Adam: Just curious.

    Marty: Hey, listen, I'm gonna let you go now because I know that you gotta get your game face on because we gotta get ready to go back on the radio and I know you'll be listening to every word.

    Adam: I love it. Have a good one, bro!

    The funny thing about this conversation is that "Adam from Milwaukee" is actually Adam Dunn sitting in the Reds clubhouse waiting out the rain. I did not catch it while I listened to it live since so many other halfwits had called in. I just assumed this guy was another moron. Dunner has to be a blast to be around. This conversation is hilarious to listen to if you know it is him.

    That's hilarious. He'd be a great guy to go out partying with. I imagine he has a ton of good stories. One question though, who's Luke Stowe? I think there's a Bernie or possibly a Rick Stowe or something that's the clubhouse manager. I'm guessing maybe it's his son?

    Yeah I heard that bit. Same night that Miller, Howard & Hanks were at the game. It's funny because I turned to my brother after he said Hatte was overrated and said "That is Adam Dunn, I know it"! We just sat and laughed and I could imagine alot of those boneheads that call in were sitting there nodding in agreement with "Adam from Milwaukee"!

    Re: Adam Dunn tricks Marty

    I heard it, but it wasn't until listening to the post game show 1 night later on that week that I figured out who it was. I knew that it was someone that Marty knew by the way he introduced "Adam from Mil" and then he said Luke Stowe and I knew it was some kind of inside joke, but didn't realize it was Dunn until later on. Just goes to show you that there isn't this huge hositility between Dunn and Marty. They can check business stuff at the door when its personal time.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    No, no, no. Marty B is an evil monster who has an adgenda against Dunn and will not stand for this insolent behavior. He has a legacy to protect ya know. I wouldn't be suprised if Dunn is sent packing along with Mays because Marty is the secret mastermind behind the Reds orginization. He couldn't possibly like a person whom he critices for their baseball performance could he?

    Well, that would require civility, and maturity and the ability to realize that baseball is a game. That just couldn't be.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
