    Tanx for the hot tip Bazz.
    I set my recorder.
    Marty Smith is a good dude.
    I called him up a couple of years ago during one of his ESPN radio shows to tell him a Johnny Cash story.

    Checking it out now. Looks like it's about Scott Frost tonight.

    I like Marty Smith but sometimes he goes a little over the top with the good ol' boy routine. It's like he's exaggerating his accent and mannerisms, and portraying a caricature of a stereotypical Southern white guy.

    Anyway, this episdode's about Scott Frost but so far there's no football and it's just a lot of hiking around in the Grand Canyon for some reason.

    Okay, so that segment was Scott Frost with some of his players wandering around in the Grand Canyon. Now we're watching Jim Harbaugh taking some players to the Louvre museum in Paris. I guess this episode is about places coaches go with their players in the offseason?

    Maybe the next segment will be Coach Mullen taking some guys to Bally Hoo's for grouper sandwiches?

    Now Marty's horseback riding with Jimbo Fisher in Texas. Neither one looks like a very experienced rider, despite Jimbo claiming he "grew up on a horse" in West Virginia. Jimbo tends to exaggerate his own accent for effect too, so right now these guys are having a Southern-off. lol

    Glad we got your input. Everyone was anxiously awaiting to know if you really care, care, don't care, or really don't care. :D

    oh by the way, please put me down for a seat at the “really don’t care” table

    Thanks man!

    Bazza was kind enough to give the link which previewed the show. After reading that, I knew it was a show which wouldn't be of interest to me. Instead I watched the Rays lose to the Yankees 4-3 so that wasn't a good choice either.

    Great concept for a show: Find some guys who are the best at what they do...and then film them doing something they are totally inept at. Sounds like a winner.
