On Thursday the lowest-rated FM station on the dial announced some changes to its lineup. Yes, Detroit Sports 105.1 program director Dave Shore made some minor adjustments, the equivalent of shuffling lounge chairs on a sinking ship.

After two and a half years of Detroiters ignoring ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” program hosted by Mike Goldberg and Mike Golic, 105.1 finally decided to go local in the morning. The national show never garnered an audience in this extremely provincial market — something I predicted the day the station debuted.

If there is anything you people know about me, it’s that I am a big Detroit sports fan and a huge Howard Stern slapdick. And whenever I can merge those two worlds, I will do it.

Back in July I had the brilliant idea to hire Stern show regular Sour Shoes to assist me in pranking Anthony Fenech and Lynn Henning If you aren’t familiar with Sour Shoes, he probably possesses the greatest combination of vocal impersonations and relevant content therein in the country.

The man is a god damn genius and that’s no hyberBOWL.

Back when I first read the above Tweet a couple years back, I had never read a “Harry Potter” book or watched a minute of the movies that were produced based on those novels.  So when Detroit News columnist John Niyo nicknamed me “Voldemort,” I had to go to Wikipedia to find out what he was referencing ….

In the series, Voldemort is the archenemy of Harry Potter, who according to a prophecy has “the power to vanquish the Dark Lord”. Almost no witch or wizard dares to speak his name, instead referring to him by epithets such as “You-Know-Who”, “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named” or “the Dark Lord”.

A candidate for President is on the verge of the GOP nomination based entirely on a platform of “Political correctness sucks and everyone but me also sucks.” I find myself in a weird place, a fierce social liberal simultaneously exhausted by the tireless efforts of misguided social justice warriors enforcing their idea of what is offensive.  People need to stop being so offended by everything, especially when the object of their ire is limited to the written or spoken word.

But boy, did Mitch Albom ever make an ass out of himself today.

It’s no secret around these parts that Andre Drummond is extremely sensitive about his awful free-throw shooting during games. The issue has recently reached a tipping point with rival teams playing “Hack-a-Dre” against the young All-Star center, who is shooting a career-low 35.5% from the charity stripe.

How insecure is Drummond about his FT stats? If you merely suggest on Twitter that he should maybe attempt to shoot underhanded under the guidance of Hall of Famer Rick Barry, he blocks you.
