    With Russo, you have to get past the schtick and really watch his show. I had a week off from work during spring break so I actually sat down and watched his show from end to end. The dude does know his stuff, it's just getting past the intro and the commercials that only show him spazzing out for 60 seconds. He usually calms down after the first commercial break, and his takes are pretty spot-on. The rants he goes on with Brian Kenny are strictly for ratings and they play up to the cameras.

    SUMMARY: Russo is an acquired taste. If you're looking for the polish of the MLB non-jock talking heads, you are not going to find it with him. I enjoy the rest of the crew, especially when the go to Studio 42 and break down plays Reynolds and Ripken are excellent on infield play. Plesac is pretty enjoyable too. Byrnes is hilarious, but I like the way he goes against the grain and his stoner-guy persona.

    Dan Le Batard, Papi Batard (Dan's father), and Bomani Jones have an okay television show on in the afternoon. You never know if Papi is napping, or thinking about his answer to a question. Bomani's voice cracks me up every time he opens his mouth.

    These sports show hosts should just talk sports and quit trying to look cool. Russo is bad but Cowherd is worse.

    I listened for years but it was probably for 30-60 min at a time in the car. They [Fatso and Fruit Loops, as Don Imus used to call them] were the only sportstalk guys on. If they were on a long boring talk about Russo's SF Giants, or tennis, golf,etc then I changed stations. There was plenty of Yanks/mets talk because they were based in NY. Before them, Bill Mazer and Art Rust Jr were THE sports guys on NY radio. They knew their sports AND they had class. They weren't smug, didn't insult the callers nor did they foam at the mouth. Apparently lots of sports fans today enjoy that kind of stuff.

    I saw a 30-second promo before I started this thread. That was enough for one lifetime.

    Years? Wow, you are far stronger than me. I think the most I have ever managed listening to the Angry Puppy was about 15 minutes.

    Listened to him on the radio for years til I couldn't stand it any more. He was so bad that he made Mike Francesa seem good. Russo is the epitome of annoying. If you sat next to him at a game you'd move to another seat.

    I'm with you. MLB Radio (on XM) does what I think is a simulcast of the show and whenever the Angry Puppy's shrill shrieks hit my ears I instantly switch to some other station. Any other station.

    Does anybody actually watch this? Because after seeing the promo for it on MLBN, to paraphrase Pete Rose, I'd rather walk through hell in a gasoline suit than let this a-hole yell at me for an hour, or however long he's on. Good Grief!
