We’re baaaack!

“The Knee Jerks”, my weekly Blog Talk Radio gabfest with Big Al from The Wayne Fontes Experience, made its return last night after a five-week hiatus due to Al recovering from major (and more painful that he thought) back surgery.

Al’s stamina was impressive. After initially indicating that he wanted to do a 35-40 minute show, he stayed with me until 12:15 — a full 75 minutes after we started.

You can hear us rehash the Red Wings’ Stanley Cup run (including my experiences being at the Finals as a member of the media); listen to us talk about the team’s future — both on the ice and in terms of which building they’ll play in; wring our hands over Magglio Ordonez; and talk glowingly about the Lions’ new regime (no, it’s not Kool-Aid sipping, promise!) if you click below.

We are now back on schedule — every Monday night live at 11 PM ET. Click here for more details about upcoming episodes, including our special guest — former Detroit broadcaster Bob Page — on July 13.
