That sound you hear is the air coming out of the UTEP basketball program’s balloon.
The Miners probably wouldn’t tell us how many season tickets holders they gained because of Isaac Hamilton and the other golden children in UTEP’s Top-10 recruiting class even if they could; but it was probably sizable or head coach Tim Floyd would never have told the El Paso Times, “People have bought season tickets based on our having Isaac."
That certainly set off the national media. Click the link below to see my column on who loses most in this deal.
A NECK Line caller got us thinking when he said for awhile he thought Lisa was Fernie in drag. Hmmm...Fernie and Lisa have both said people think they're related when they're together in public, and Fernie has been in drag to represent KLAQ before. What do you think?
Television news is serious business. Really. In part, that's because it takes a huge team effort to do anything. A successful TV newscast has many moving parts that must work together, like San Francisco's KTVU noon news with this piece on the Asiana Airlines crash that will make your jaw drop. From the chyron guy who creates the obviously fake and highly objectionable graphic, to the producer who calls to put the graphic on air, to the anchor who mindlessly reads it word-for-word, this took teamwork!
More than a few El Paso front-runners could take a lesson or two from Scott Entsminger. You have to have a special kind of passion to follow the Cleveland Browns literally all your life -- and never be rewarded. So you'll excuse his last request if it seems a little harsh.
Tonight's the night! We start Street Fest in earnest as Bush headlines on the Budweiser Main Stage tonight and Third Eye Blind tomorrow. But one of the coolest things about Street Fest is that there is so much else going on -- and we try to capture it all with our Street Fest Slowdowns. Here's last year's!
Massachusetts State Police have arrested now former Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez as officials continue to investigate the death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Check out the raw footage from WCVB-TV, especially around two minutes in as police ring Hernandez's doorbell and knock for a minute before he answers.
Streetfest has been back for over a decade now and the party just keeps getting bigger. This year will be no exception. Special new party places on the patio at the Camino Real, new bands and all that great FOOD! If you've never been, take a look...then get your tickets!
Can the Spurs can get over the emotional loss in Game 6? Will Dwayne Wade show up? Does Manu Ginobili have anything left in the tank? Is Ray Allen is basketball Yoda? Forget all that! The MOST IMPORTANT question going into Game 7 of the NBA Finals is: Will LeBron wear the SWEATBAND?!
