WANE regroups despite a lot of distractions during a three-day weekend. My parents were in town and Spencer just had to jump on the Forty Niner bandwagon and absorb all the energy an NFC Championship Game brings to a metropolitan. It was also absolutely gorgeous in the Bay Area so a bunch of mid-day hoops was going to be tough. I did catch the end of Oregon State-Oregon which was…well, we talk about. Listen:
The triumphant return of the table of contents:
0:00 – Completely unprepared
0:19 – The Confession begins – Segways and hangovers
1:43 – Actual first reference of Pac-12 basketball…then a return to Segways
3:19 – Adam makes a remarkable pun using ‘segway’ and Spence talks about the abuse of his own body
4:07 – A return to basketball!
4:37 – We begin discussing the 1-4 Oregon Ducks and there’s a Nate-Rob reference. But one and four…
5:58 – First reference of Arizona. As in the Arizona Wildcats. Maybe you’ve heard of them? We thought it was their most complete game of the year. And more on that game
6:59 – Spencer references seven Wildcats in double figure for the second time in one minute
8:01 – JAHISAHLL
8:35 – Onto the Arizona-Colorado rivalry and a brief look in to gambling. But not really. We talk a lot about Askia Booker again and I don’t think we even reference Josh Scott which is probably a disservice to Arizona fans because many eyes should be on him for Thursday’s contest. But Booker’s weekend…
12:31 – A transition into the Colorado-ASU game and how those two teams really match up in an interesting way.
13:13 – PAGING ROGER GOODELL: CONCUSSION REFERENCE
14:20 – Abruptly Spencer brings Utah into the conversation and we VERY passively move into prediction mode. Who should be more successful in their trip to the desert?
17:48 – And so begins a conversation about travel theory. Who would you rather play and when? And segues into What is the toughest road trip in the conference?
19:16 – Spencer makes like a dictionary. Seriously he makes a Webster-like reference about Stanford. How fitting.
20:49 – An all too long discussion about the liquor laws and where to acquire that vice when visiting the state of Utah.
22:07 – Traveling to play Washington isn’t all too bad. But Washington State you might have to go to Moscow. Idaho of course. And another liquor law issue arises.
24:19 – Obligatory reference of the road trips we haven’t discussed.
24:39 – While talking about how tough traveling through the Apple State might be we then still declare it the easiest road trip.
25:50 – Just listen to this series of communications out of Spencer’s mouth
26:30 – Another gambling reference-ish, with regards to Arizona and Cal as the leaders of the Pac
26:53 – Computer! My computer makes an appearance!
28:33 – Adam makes a pun involving Cal
30:46 – Tangent: NCAA Ski and Water Polo championships. University of the Pacific makes it’s WANE debut.
31:43 – One last thing that Spencer wants to discuss: The Stanford Cardinal.
32:56 – Prolonged goodbye with Dr. King references, a thank you to presumed listeners, Spencer gets a fact egregiously wrong, roommate Time is mentioned but not heard, I call myself an Adult (ha!), and a salute to Chasson Randle. Also a hopefully NOT empty promise.
