I caught about 1 minute of the Phegley chat on Boers and Bernstein and I thought I had heard Bernstein talk highly of him. Maybe I missed something and he was being facetious.

I could probably count on one hand how many people have professed to being a fan of theirs and yet they regularly destroy ESPN in the ratings. I'm reminded of this exchange regarding Howard Stern in the movie Private Parts:

Researcher: "The average radio listener listens for eighteen minutes. The average Howard Stern fan listens for - are you ready for this? - an hour and twenty minutes."

Pig Vomit: "How can that be?"

Researcher: "Answer most commonly given? "I want to see what he'll say next."

Pig Vomit: "Okay, fine. But what about the people who hate Stern?"

Researcher: "Good point. The average Stern hater listens for two and a half hours a day."

Pig Vomit: "But... if they hate him, why do they listen?"

Researcher: "Most common answer? "I want to see what he'll say next."

In other words, LOL at all the B&B haters that seem to know an awful lot about a show they don't listen to.
