If you think political talk radio is a brutal place, you should try sports talk radio. In the world of news talk, you have a biased hosed with a political agenda attempting to spin current events to make you see them his way. In the world of sports talk, you largely have a field of minds so jammed with statistics and dates that they are unable to form a point of view on anything other than a simple Vegas line, let alone manage to try to find a way to spin the event for the mindless masses who tune it. This can make listening to channels like Mad Dog Radio on Sirius and XM Radio an exercise in frustration. Yet it is an exercise that I perform almost daily, and occasionally I call in to try to straighten some of these guys out. My latest beef? The New York Knicks.

Providence, R.I. --- A motorist driving past a fender-bender struck three men standing on the side of the highway and drove more than a mile and a half with one of them lodged in his windshield, police said. State police said the three men were standing on the side of Interstate 95 early Sunday to check for damages following an earlier, unrelated accident. Christopher Swiridowsky, 30, drove into the three men and one of them, Jose Flores, 24, became lodged in Swiridowsky's windshield and remained there for a over mile. Swiridowsky stopped only because he thought someone was following him. He fled on foot and was later found hiding in his home. Flores has two broken legs and a broken arm. One of the other men suffered serious injuries, police said.
