Live Today @ Kingston Alley/KY TIX & Ark TIX UP For Grabs!!!!
Friday's Tony Talking Points
Posted: Friday, February 24th, 2006, 9:15 AM • Permalink
Ought to be a great one today on the show if my ***** equipment will cooperate! Thanks for being patient with me while we get this stuff worked out. Thanks for the patience and grace that you show as a listener to this show!!! Today we are live at Kingston Alley and We will visit with the great and I mean the great Bert Bertlekamp. He’s your treasurer of the Basilio show and absolutely my favorite color guy in any sport anywhere, anytime. Speaking of which: This UT Hoops team is my favorite sport anywhere, anytime in any sport, in any place under any circumstance!!!! Bar None. William Floyd….Over and out!!!!

My equipment snafu’s weren’t the only disgraceful aspect of yesterdays show. I found it reprehensible that more than a handful of callers found glee in what he happened to Noah. He’s a college kid. Yeah. He’s a pretty boy. Yeah, he is too boisterous for my blood. But, he’s a college kid who could’ve been hurt. I must admit, when I first saw the aftermath of the elbow, it brought a rush of adrenaline to see CJ Watson put a guy down like that. But in the aftermath, there is nothing redeeming about reveling in it a day later. As they say in the old country, ‘what’s a matter for you’?


Peak Rating on TV 8 for UT @ Fla. 26.1 Rating and a 31 Share. This up against The Olympics and A 2 hour ‘Lost’ special! This is a new record for college hoops on TV locally! A bunch of people are catching the Volunteer Spirit!!!

Speaking of this game. We will discuss Barry Booker’s bizarre and misplaced comments about Pearl and IU. This came in the middle of a league sanctioned telecast. We’ll ask the question, what if anything should the league do about Booker. Suspend/terminate? You tell me. Should Hambone get involved and cry to the league like the rest of the AD’s in the conference would about this one.

Finally: I got this note in the e-mail at Tony@tonybasilio.com that contained the following tribute/dedication to Douglas Addair ‘Tall Guy’ Dickey. The newly crowned King of Crystal River!!!!! This was sent to me from Doug in Knoxville who no doubt fashions himself as a poor man’s John Pennington. Or is it the other way around? I’ll take the latter!

Hey Tony!



Last night, I heard the words I have longed to hear for years: Doug
Dickey has moved back (or is in the process of moving back) to Florida!
I always said I would dance a jig in the middle of I-40 when he left and
now I guess I will have to pay up. In honor of this momentous occasion,
I though I would write "Casey's Country Countdown" for a little long
distance dedication:




"Dear Casey,



We just got the sad news (yeah, right!) that our esteemed (?) former
athletic director - and Florida's favorite secret agent - Douglas Adair
Dickey, has moved back to the Sunshine State. We know that this
resurgence of UT's basketball program has been very traumatic for him
and we want to let him know that he is in our thoughts and our hearts go
out to him -especially after this tragic second loss to the Vols by the
Gators. So, Casey, could you please play for him this special version
of Jimmy Wayne's "Stay Gone"?



Well, Doug, here is your long distance dedication":




Stay Gone (With Apologies to Jimmy Wayne!)


We've found piece of mind, We're feeling good again.
We're on the other side,
Back among the living.
Ain't a cloud in the sky,
All our tears have been cried,
And we can finally say:
Dickey, Dickey stay,
Stay right where you are.
We like it this way,
It's good for our hearts.
We haven't felt like this,
In God knows how long.
And we know everything's gonna be okay,
If you just stay gone.

You still loathe us, and you will forever
You can't hide the truth,
We know each other better.
You never tried to make it work,
And We were left hurt.
And it ain't supposed to be that way.

So Dickey, Dickey stay,
Stay right where you are.
We like it this way,
It's good for our hearts.
We haven't played like this,
In God knows how long.
And We know everything's gonna be okay,
If you just stay gone.



(Instrumental Break)


You never tried to make it work,
And that left us all hurt.
And sports ain't supposed to be that way.

So Dickey, Dickey stay,
Stay right where you are.
We like it this way,
It's good for our hearts.
We haven't felt like this,
No, in God knows how long.
And We know everything's gonna be okay,
If you just stay gone.

We know everything's gonna be okay,
If you just stay gone.
