    Yeah, a 'win-win for all' except for listeners here in the tri-state.

    Man, it has been about 3 weeks now and I am really missing Mike in the mornings (and on Saturdays) on WLW.

    He was by far my favorite talker on radio...lots of varied topics, local and national...sense of humor...good guests.

    I can't imagine how 'LW will be able to find anyone to replace him who will come close to measuring up.

    They cant replace Mike...Sloanie is ok...but nothing can take the place of the common sense of McConnell...I really miss him on Fridays...

    I can't wait to hear McConnell in a new market like Chicago. His show over the years somewhat got stale because so many people over the years learned not to call in and argue with him because they found out they wouldn't win. The people of Chitown are in for a treat.

    Sloan is adapting to the time slot. He is getting more tolerable.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I still hope he isn't the permanent replacement.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    ...and, of course, that would be 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, Cincinnati time.

    I stopped listening several months ago. Hopefully people realize that Rod from Norwood, Richard from Indian Hill, and Nick are all fake and are voiced by the same person.

    Rod from Norwood fake? What about his no frills daycare? Is that fake too?

    I'd lump Miss C. in with that bunch as well...though maybe not voiced by the same person, though you never know.
