Trevor was responsible for some tough early mornings for us when finished some of the Padre games late into the night. He's surprised that it's already been eight years since he retired from baseball. How time flies. Trevor told us a bit about the excitement awaiting the phone call from the Hall of Fame. He has 20-25 people gathered at his home waiting for the big call. It was great that we had a chance to thank him for all the years of entertainment he provided for us.
Thursday-Sunday the Arizona Diamondbacks are at Petco Park and the Padres are honoring Trevor Hoffman’s Hall of Fame induction all weekend. Friday fans get a Hoffy Table Book, Saturday is a Trevor Hoffman Cooperstown Replica Plaque giveaway, while Sunday fans get a Statue Replica.
Chainsaw proposed renaming the corner at 51st Street and Hells Bells in honor of Trevor and relocating Petco Park to that corner.
Want to see a bench clearing brawl? Just watch the video above! Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley confronted each other after the Dodgers outfielder fouled off a pitch, slapping his bat mid-air in frustration. Puig shoved Hundley with his left hand and both teams spilled onto the field. They nearly came to blows again before Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren yanked Puig out of the tangle while Giants outfielder Hunter Pence restrained Hundley. Both Puig and Hundley were ejected shortly after the field cleared. The Giants beat the Dodgers 2-1.
If they served craft beer in church - would you imbibe? That's what one church in Santa Cruz, CA plans to find out.
Leaders of the progressive Greater Purpose Community Church have leased a huge space and plan a big opening in summer or fall of 2019. Along with the church there will be a brewery in the basement and a full restaurant.
“I hope it totally changes people’s perception of Christianity,” says GPCC pastor Christopher VanHall, who notes that there won’t be anything religious in the restaurant signage or merchandise—nothing to indicate, on first glance, that this is anything more than a family-friendly brew pub.
We learned a lot about what kind of cookies the boys like today. Dave loves the soft sugar cookies stuffed with M&M's from the Von's Bakery. But there are rules! They must have today's date, must be slightly under baked and they have to be "soft as a puppies kiss."
Dave says you gotta touch them to make sure they're soft enough. So far, they've always passed his test. But Boyer says since Dave opens the plastic container, he "violates the hymen of the clam." He won the right to wear the Jingle Chain for that line!
Meanwhile, Chainsaw has a history of knocking back an entire bag of Circus Cookies on his way home from the store.
One long time listener remembered Chainsaw's fondness for the Cookie Dong. He would rework raw chocolate chip cookie dough into a phallic shape, wrap them in tin foil and slap them in the freezer to make a sweet, tasty snack!
Boyer retold the Ookie Cookie story today. You should really go to the podcast for that lil' gem.

THEN WE LEARNED JUST HOW SERIOUS YOU ARE ABOUT ICE CREAM DEPENDING ON HOW YOU LEAVE YOUR ICE CREAM CONTAINER. IF'S IT'S NICE AND SMOOTH ON TOP - YOU'RE OUR KIND OF PEOPLE. OR DO YOU LEAVE A LOT OF MESSY DIVOTS, LUMPS AND BUMPS?
THIS LED TO THE DREADFUL NEW ICE CREAM FLAVOR SENSATION FOR 2018 - MAYONNAISE …MOST OF US WOULD STILL TRY IF IT WAS HERE IN STUDIO
