I listen to sports talk radio whenever I can. Stories about sports are my escape.and favorite conversation topic.
And I was very, very impressed with the original thoughts from Nick Wright and Joy Thomas, who guest-hosted The Herd for at least the past two days.
Among the gems I heard in a limited amount of time, all paraphrased:
Nick: "I'm not a fan of slippery slope arguments. 'It could lead to something,' is a bad argument."
Nick: "I don't want my kids celebrating after making a play. But I don't want them getting cortisone shots either. Pro athletes and children are different."
Joy: "Just because pro sports can be watched by kids, doesn't mean they should be catered to them. Lots of things can be seen by kids without being for kids."
(I'm open to correction if I misinterpreted their points.)
I was impressed with their on-air compatibility and insights. I hope to see and or hear a lot more of them.
