In particular, when he reads an email that doesn't sit right, the look of disgust on his face is classic. :-b ;-D :-b

It's entertaining at times, for sure... Guy calls in last week at some point, complaining about the Indians signing Kerry Wood, and how he's never done anything in his career. He's old, washed up garbage. Asks Bruce, if you could choose between Johan Santana and Kerry Wood who would you take? He just stares at the camera, like where do we find these people.

Apparently the caller didn't know Kerry Wood was closing games, and seemed to miss the fact that Santana is a starter, signed a big deal, not a FA, and way out of the Indians price range... It's really hard for me to say I'm from Cleveland when there are far too many guys like that "representing" our city.

However, while Bruce is loud, funny, blunt, and often angry, he also has no idea what he's talking about half of the time. And I've already said how painful it is for me to hear the idiot callers that live somewhere near me.

Bruce has been out of prison for maybe 2 years now. Did time in WV for like gambling related tax evasion. He was a long-time Cleveland broadcaster, on radio, did Indians games with Joe Tate (Cavaliers radio) etc. etc. and when he got out, no one would give him a job, except this new station STO. That's why the show's called All Bets Are Off.

Good show, and FWIW, it's Bruce DRENNAN not Brennan.

...and Ashley Collins, the sports update girl on the show, is hot.

Geesh...tough crowd at the cafe.

I watched this show last week and saw him go off on a guy who said DeRosa was a chump. Love this guy and wish I could catch him on more.

Yea, she's not hot. She's not ugly or anything, but her super-heavy accent kills me.
