We are SOOOO Famous


If you're looking for a modest post from Spitblood about our subtle mention from the greatness that is The Ticket, then stop reading now. Seriously, stop.

So, for those P1's that already know, which is the better, more intelligent majority of our readers, we got a little on air shout-out from the greatness that is Corby Davidson and The Ticket on Wednesday night. If you don't know why, then you didn't read Lyle's post that consisted of the hilarity that was Corby Davidson and ex-frog Malcolm Williams doing repro man. Again- listen to that or quit reading now.

So why am I bragging about little ole Spitblood posting something from the little ole Marconi award winning radio station 1310 The Ticket? Well, didn't I just answer my own question there? Plain and simple- award winners look out for award winners. They may win big time Marconi's (who the fuck is that? Sounds super gay to me.) and we may just win Fort Worth Weekly's Best Blog on the Planet, but we are pretty much one in the same.

I mean, yeah, a radio shout out isn't really that bad, but it's not the end of the world. It's pretty much like the 10th time that TCU's own (but OU loving) Corby Davidson has mention Spitblood and our greatness on air. You may also see him and his goofy Gene Simmons hairdo (recently buzzed) in our photos holding a GP koozie. Yeah, he tailgates with us sometimes. So do Chris Del Conte, former All-American's Jerry Hughes, Wayne Daniels, and World Series champ and 6+ ERA Red Sox "ace" John Lackey, but who's bragging (I am)? But I digress...

Ok, to the point meow. So yes, we were all thrilled about the Hard Line's mention of Spitblood. We deserve it considering how much $$$ I've spent watching Mike Rhyner sing "Refugee" for Petty Theft. So yeah, we really appreciated it, but that wasn't the end of it. Out of the goodness of my heart (haha), I tweeted at our old friend Corby Davidson in an effort to earn him more followers and said...

"@corbydavidson enjoyed the on-air shout out last night. Glad we could help make you more famous. #egg"

Like I said before, that was just a good faith effort on our part to get Corby, who is marginally metroplex-famous (not Spitblood famous, but getting there) a few dozen more followers. So Corby was nice enough to respond in kind and say...

"@spitbloodtcu god bless you spitblood. Vag"

Seriously, listen to the Repro-Man post or you will be so incredibly lost by this post. It involves an ex-frog. LISTEN!

Moral of the story: You know you've arrived when the most listened to radio show in the great southwest (at least from 3-7) gives you not only a radio shout out, but a twitter back and forth. I'm also just really happy that we could help out a struggling radio personality like Corby Davidson get a little bit of attention. I mean, did you hear the old geezer and NYC personality Mike Francesa treat him like a stepchild that should've been aborted? Seriously readers, the poor guy only makes $37.5K (allegedly), so maybe we should quit with the Purple People Seater's campaign and just have a "Buy Corby a TCU Ticket" campaign. Seems more noble to me, and maybe we'll get another radio mention for it...

Daily reader, rarely comment. This was too good to abstain from complementing.
