Speaker 1 (00:02):
Yo, good to see what's going on? Okavatos locals, Welcome
to a very special Friday edition of Over promised our
bonus pod because we can't fit all this fun into
our show, Covino and Rich two to four on the West,
five to seven on the East. But this week, Crazy week,
we did the Dan Patrick hat trick. If you missed

(00:23):
any of that, searched a podcast and we filled him
for Colin Cowherd. But back to normal.

Speaker 2 (00:27):
Good to be here. I hope you had a great week.
I mean, truth be told. I want to be hanging
with you and everyone. Yeah, but I'm like counting the
minutes for us to be done with this because I
want to watch Love Is Blind season six. Yeah, buddy,
but we got a lot of get to all right, Well,
tell me I look like Megan Funk You don't you
look like Eli Manning A.

Speaker 1 (00:46):
Yeah. The drunkest fans in sports, okay, the drunkest fans
in sports, and the weakest uniforms. And it's all based
on the biggest story in baseball this week, these miserable
new uniforms, the Nike Vapor premiere Jersey.

Speaker 2 (01:04):
You know what, Shit's funny to me that NFL is king.
We all talk about the NFL at nauseum almost non stop.
The football season ends, we're already predicting who's going to
be in the postseason next year. NFL is king, NBA
All Star Weekend, all the stuff is going on. Baseball's
probably trying desperately what can we do to get a headline?
And they're headlines that they got shitty uniforms, you.

Speaker 1 (01:26):
Know, But I lot it this way. It's it's function
over fashion here. There's a purpose, and I think we're
just prisoners of the moment because they look ugly, but
there's purpose. Right. It's like when your phone gets an update.
You hate it at first, but then you realize, oh, okay,
maybe it's good. Maybe, you know, you start to like
it because they're moisture wicking uniforms made of ninety percent

(01:47):
recycle polyester, but you get twenty five percent more stretch, right,
and it allows the jersey to dry twenty eight percent.

Speaker 2 (01:56):
That's sniff Bartolo Colones thinking couple years too late for
the extra stretch.

Speaker 1 (02:01):
What true? Twenty eight percent faster? Right? So in the
dong days of summer when it's hot and it's what
maybe then they're like Oh, you know what, they're not
so bad, but they're not visually pleasing to the eye. Man,
they look jeep. Did you say the dong days of summer?
The dog days of summer? Because there might be a
dog day there might say, But the headline is just

(02:22):
how bad they look. And you saw the side by
side comparisons between like the old Seantle jersey, which is
getting a lot of criticism. If you look at the
old Mariners jersey.

Speaker 2 (02:31):
When I say old like a year ago, look at
the detail and the stitching and the name, and it
looks like an official jersey. You as a fan would
pay hundreds of dollars for. The one on the right
looks like the Boadell's Dick Sporting Good Big Five, like
shitty knockoff.

Speaker 1 (02:48):
And they're not cheap. That's the other thing.

Speaker 2 (02:50):
One of the right is the one that you buy
from a Japanese website for twenty bucks.

Speaker 1 (02:53):
Well again, yeah, players are complaining, but jersey enthusiasts are
also complaining because they're like over four hundred dollars. They're
distributed by fanatics, made by Nike, and it's getting a
lot of criticism. And just when you thought it couldn't
get any worse, right, because they look terrible. Pictures were
released of show hel Tani wearing them right, and the
pants are see through, so people are like, dude, they're

(03:15):
so bad. You could see through the pants. This is
gonna be terrible, right. You can see his jersey tucked in.
You could see it tucked in. And if you think
that's bad, just wait. It gets even more worse because
Casey Schmidt of the San Francisco Giants took a photo
rich it went viral. I thought it was fake with
AI you don't know photoshop. I'm like, this can't be real.

(03:38):
That's funny. The headline was is he gonna start every
count two and oh this season? And I'm like, what
does that even mean? Oh? Two balls, no strikes because
you could see his balls. Stop, dude, the pants are
so see through yet little crackerjacks. You could see his
little crackerjacks, you call him through the pontelness. But again,

(04:02):
they're supposed to be more breathable, they're supposed to be better,
but all it's getting is criticism. And uh, just to
give you one more update, Eric Cosmer, who just recently
retired thirteen years in the Big congrats man Eric Cosmer
came out publicly saying, yeah, they're not great, but they'll
fix it. They'll fix it. Yeah, And that brings us

(04:23):
to the worst uniforms of all. We'll keep in mind
function over fashion. But they do look cheap and to
be honest, not kissing any ass, as your dad would say.
But fanatics and Nike usually put out pretty premier products.
So I think everyone's confused. It's not embroidered on anymore. Right,
it's sort of ironed on, ironed on the logos and everything.

(04:44):
So I get it. It's not gonna look the same.
But they're playing baseball, They're not putting on a fashion show. Okay,
So we'll see what happens, what adjustments they make based
on the criticism.

Speaker 2 (04:54):
Well, what are some of the weaker uniforms in our lifetime,
maybe even before we were born? I thought of a
few if you want to, all right, let's get play along,
let's get into it. If we don't get to the
one you're thinking of, or you think one is worst,
hit us up at Covino and Rich at Fox Sports Radio.

Speaker 1 (05:10):
Hashtag over promise.

Speaker 2 (05:12):
Now, this one came to mind because my son Ben,
who just turned four, thinks he's a dinosaur.

Speaker 1 (05:18):
Loves t Rex's.

Speaker 2 (05:19):
Yeah, the Raptor's uniform back in the day looks like
a terrible like cartoon that like a kid drew with
a basketball jersey. Other.

Speaker 1 (05:28):
Yeah, that's infamously known as one of the weakest.

Speaker 2 (05:32):
It is kind of weak and nothing says Toronto like dinosaurs.

Speaker 1 (05:36):
Yeah, yeah, no, that's a bad one. How about the Pirates,
This old Pirates one that got a lot of criticism.

Speaker 2 (05:44):
That's when they were trying to do those experimental like
future uniforms. At his weak I hope no one wears
this in the future ugly ass Pirate on a their
their third rare color, because the Pirates are you know,
every team in Pittsburgh got that golden black. Yeah, you
shouldn't use your third race though color as the red
on the Pirates. But it's so ugly that you know,

(06:05):
I've seen people wear that Raptor's jersey. I've never seen
a fan, yeah, wearing that jersey. Aget. It sometimes has
irony and something so ugly it's cool. Like for instance,
the Tampa Bay Bucks creamsicle went from you know, that's
the lamest uniform ever to that's the hottest uniform because
Seattle retro and nostalgic Seattle Seahawks lime green. For as

(06:26):
many people say that shit's hideous, some people say that's hot.
So it's a thin line. But I think these that
we're pointing out universally bad. See like that when we
were kids was considered ugly.

Speaker 1 (06:37):
Now you're like, oh yeah, nostalgia reasons, that's the only thing.
How about the Islanders, the infamous Islanders Jersey. I'm not
talking Haku and uh the island.

Speaker 2 (06:50):
Yeah, when they when they got rid of the legendary
classic New York Islanders, you know, the stick and the puck,
the Gordon's Fisherman.

Speaker 1 (06:58):
It's kind of you know what I mean, If you
take that of it, it's not that bad. But I
know it got a lot of criticism. And you know,
we're from the East Coast, so we completely remember when
that was talk of the talent. It's so weak. But
keep in mind too, people hate change, people hate it.
I'll give you an example. It's time.

Speaker 2 (07:15):
I don't want to put Spot on the spot because
he's pulling up these photos like a freaking wizard. I
remember when we were at our old job, when the
Rams debuted their new uniform. People hated it. Now I
look at it, I'm like the bone gray or the
bright blue and yellow. I think the Rams uniform looks tight.

Speaker 1 (07:30):
You're so right. We said it looked like the Internet
Explorer logo. We were hating on that so bad because
our eyes hadn't adjusted yet.

Speaker 2 (07:38):
You guys haven't got to keep that in mind. But
every new uniform for a minute looks funny. But to me,
the Rams are a great example of a team that everyone's.

Speaker 1 (07:46):
Like, that's what they came up with.

Speaker 2 (07:48):
And now you look at it and you're like, it's
pretty tight looking. Yeah, no, it looks good.

Speaker 1 (07:52):
I agree. At first, I wasn't feeling it. I like
it now. How about that Steelers uniform? Everybody hated it on.

Speaker 2 (07:58):
They haven't broken out in a minute. I think they're
due to rock the bumblebees.

Speaker 1 (08:03):
They're weak, dude.

Speaker 2 (08:05):
I mean, I get it. Throwbacks are a thing the fans.
I just you know what I always thought was interesting.
Imagine you're a little kid, your dad brings you to
one Steelers game and that's what they're wearing. Like that's
your memory, that's your lasting childhood memory.

Speaker 1 (08:17):
No. Rich is a guy who focuses on the jersey,
and you care about these things. I don't care as much.
So I wouldn't care if I was at the game
they were wearing them. But I do have eyes and
a sense of taste, and I think those are weak
as hell. Now, I don't want to be predictable, could man,
they are ugly. They are weak as hell. There's a

(08:37):
uniform that everyone will agree is Mike Tyson is the bumblebee.
Dam I'm a Pittsburgh Steeler fan. Yeah, I love the
dealer that Mike Tython had the bumble bee. Now it's
like no rain by blind Melon to me. This was
before our time, so I don't remember this. So I

(08:59):
remember seeing it for the first I'm thinking, well, this
wasn't real. This this has to be like maybe an
exhibition game or like maybe it was a one day
thing in spring training. And there he is, like Tyson
is a bubblebee. That's when Tyson was rooting for the Steelers.
If go Lef, go Bitthberg horible towel.

Speaker 2 (09:17):
So there was a Chicago White Sox uniform with a
collar and they were wearing shorts.

Speaker 1 (09:25):
I can't believe that's real. I'm with you on that
because it was before we were born.

Speaker 2 (09:28):
So anytime you see one of these lists come up,
like Shootish uniforms, I always thought like, no, way that
was real. How did how did the players say, yeah,
I'm going with this. Yeah I can't I can't even
imagine that. That looks like some throwback eighteen hundred liked.

Speaker 1 (09:43):
If you played ball, you know that you're susceptible to
some serious raspberries there. No, I mean like, if you're sliding,
that's gotta hurt. It's just not even functional. Not only
is it not fashionable, it's not even functional. So every
guy's gonna have cuts on his knees. You think that's
number one, but it's not. Oh my number one, I

(10:04):
know what your number one is one. Uh, you're a
big baseball fan. World Baseball Classic When Great Britain the
letters were like the simplest font and they were like
falling off the jersey that was the weekend by the way,
that was such an embarrassment. And that's what they're comparing
the new jerseys too, that Great Britain WBC jersey that
was falling apart. No, and that was on such a

(10:25):
big stage, that was so weak. No, the number one
worst jersey or worst uniform of all time. I'm giving
it to you, Rich Rich Davis nineteen eighty seven, Franklin
Square Little League mets like that weak ass font got
weakass jersey with your foam hat, your styrofoam, weak ass
flat brim, and those weak ass stirrups. You number one

(10:46):
weakest of all time flashing it back on Friday.

Speaker 2 (10:49):
First of all, I did grow up in the Franklin
Square area, But how dare you disrespect Garden City South?
Little Cherry Valley is the field we played at and
we had that coin parade down Nassau Boulevard on Long Island.

Speaker 1 (11:03):
Look how weak that uniform was. And you know how
weak it was. It was probably ten years old by
the time you got to it. Oh patches and grass
stains from nineteen seventy something on most pants. Look at that.

Speaker 2 (11:14):
Well something else I wanted to bring up on today's
over promise. We just wrapped up the NFL season now
when I was at the Super Bowl. Sorry way spot
saying what would you say, spot Spots.

Speaker 1 (11:25):
About your stellar jersey when you were a kid? Mine?
Mine was? Mine was so bad they misspelled it. I'm sorry. Yeah,
my little League Jersey was so bad. It was a
misspelling because they didn't care about you back then. They
printed them out and they're like, yeah, I guess you
got to roll with it. I was on the Virginians,
but if you look close, you're on the Virginans, the
Virgin's virgins. Dude, you're such a Vrgina. They spelled it wrong.

(11:52):
You know, I always marveled at my mullet. I marveled
at my mullet in that photo, never realizing they spelled
Virginia's wrong. Ignore, I'll be honest, ignored. Ignore.

Speaker 2 (12:00):
Could you know it was pretty stellar mechanics there. Oh yeah,
but you were on the Virgina's. That was Virgina ten,
like nineteen eighty six, eighty seven is one?

Speaker 1 (12:11):
Anyway? Thank you? It's number one.

Speaker 2 (12:14):
The virginas with your Mets, Virgie was not the Virginas
you make the call, you make that right. Something I
wanted to bring up because I thought about the last
few times you and I have been to a ballgame,
basketball game, Lakers game, baseball game. I was at the
super Bowl, not not a not a brag, just to
watch my Niners loose.

Speaker 1 (12:30):
He had a great time in Vegas, though it was
rat time. You want to see your recap, check our
social media. I do think about how much do I
drink at a game? I feel like you and I
I'll I make it one of those I'll tell you what.
We went to a fight. I had one big ass Seltzer,
you know, like one of those big seltzers for a
reasonably twice price, twenty dollars. Twenty dollars, or one big seltzer.

Speaker 2 (12:50):
Or maybe if you go to the bar, you you
get a double for twenty son, maybe a vodka soda drink,
maybe one or two beers. I never understood the person
that went to a game and got smashed.

Speaker 1 (13:03):
I get it just washed.

Speaker 2 (13:05):
There's a culture of stack of my beer cups and
you get all plastered. They came out with a list
in the New York Post of the drunkest NFL fan
bases and oddly enough, the most sober fan base, the Chiefs,
and I'm thinking, because they got good shit to watch,
you don't want to you don't want to miss my
homes and Kelsey and Andy Reid calling killer plays. The

(13:27):
drunkest fans. Congratulations, Tennessee Titans. I don't know how they
did this. I think What they did was they they
sound like the Titans stink. They did a they on that.
They tracked breathalyzers and breath tests. They would do it
random fans, and they decided that the Titans, the Steel Airs,
the Cults, Falcons, and Saints those are your top five
drunk fan bases.

Speaker 1 (13:48):
Now, are you proud of that or not? I'm asking
you let us know. But my theory is different on that. Look,
you go out to have a good time whenever you're
doing New York and LA or in the so over categories.

Speaker 2 (14:00):
I'm wondering if you got other stuff doing in your city, maybe.

Speaker 1 (14:03):
Because they're on edibles and they're high. I does that
have anything to do with it? I'll t I give
you a story, because a lot of times, even out
here in California, it's like, oh, I'm California sober, which
you means, yeah, you're not drinking, but you're high on something. Yeah.

Speaker 2 (14:15):
I don't legally, I don't need all those I don't
need all those calories. I was at a World Series
game once and I'm sad to admit one of my
friends passed me a little pen. He's like, you want
to you wanna a little puff. I was like, yeah, sure,
I feel like I missed three innings like where I
was like, I remember being like, I remember turning to

(14:36):
my friends.

Speaker 1 (14:36):
Rich floated upper Tier. I remember talking.

Speaker 2 (14:39):
I remember it's a it's a stupid quote amongst my friends.

Speaker 1 (14:42):
Now.

Speaker 2 (14:42):
Yeah, because I turned to my and I just randomly
go see eighth inning, Like I.

Speaker 1 (14:47):
In my mind, I was like, I thought the games
you started, you're probably caught in your head thinking of.

Speaker 2 (14:51):
I am anti getting drunk or high at a game,
because I feel like you go to the game, listen,
if you were with your buddies, it's one thing, but
a lot of times you go to the game with
your kids, have a great family experience. If you go
with your buddies after one or two drinks, like do
you really want to have the headache and feel shitty
go there to watch the game?

Speaker 1 (15:07):
I mean, are you driving this another another?

Speaker 2 (15:09):
Yeah?

Speaker 1 (15:10):
And I'm not here to criticize because like I was
about to say, when you go out and some people
don't get out enough, you want to have a great time.
So we're saying, enjoy your drink, enjoy yourself. But the
way I roll with that, Rich, it's like two or
three the max, two or three at the max, because
I want to enjoy the game. And if you're getting sloshed,
as we put it before, and you're the guy who

(15:30):
loves to wear his beer helmet and be that guy
and smash beer cans on your head, you know, I
question how much you love the game if priority here
is getting trashed, yeah, you know. And for me, I
want to take it all in and not.

Speaker 2 (15:44):
Be sloppy, even if even if it's open bar, control yourself.
You and I and Spot you were there as well.
We went to go see MESSI when he played against
LAFC and we found our way. I don't know how
we got there, but we sort of found our way
in a v P area to the point where we
could be there. We couldn't leave because Spot led us
to this awesome area where if we left, we weren't

(16:06):
getting back in. And I remember you and I walking
up to the bar and you're like it's free, like yeah,
open bar. We only had or two drinks maybe each,
because we were like, you know what.

Speaker 1 (16:16):
We're here to enjoy. The goal is messy, not to
get messy. But again, look at me, look at me.
I could repeat that ce messy not to get messy,
but that's the thing. That's the thing. Everybody has a
different limit. So if my limit here at the game
before it's a little too much as two or three,

(16:38):
here's maybe four or five, and that's fine. But no
you're limiting. Don't go past it because what memories you
taken away from the game. That's why you went in
the first place. So it's not I'm not judging here,
I'm just saying no. When to say, when there you go,
I made that up? How do you like that? Oh? Wow?
Really to say yeah, because you're there to watch the game,

(16:59):
and as they say, the Little League field, remember adults,
the children are watching the kids there, come on, bozo.

Speaker 2 (17:07):
Well, I have one last thought before we say farewell,
have a great weekend, Enjoy some relaxing, try a little NBA,
enjoy some maybe you know, keep up on your baseball team,
little spring training action. The reminder based on our show
title over promised. It's the fun name of our bonus pod.

(17:28):
But the lesson in life that we've preached for years,
you don't want to overpromise. The opposite is what works
in life. You want to underpromise overproduce. You never want
to overpromise underproduced. That's the old joking name of this podcast,
because we don't get to everything that I promised you'd
get to, and no one likes when someone over promises,

(17:48):
and it brings us to the show that we're all
going to watch this weekend, and that is Love Is
Blind season six.

Speaker 1 (17:55):
Yes, the biggest trash TV is fine.

Speaker 2 (17:58):
The biggest trending thing from that show is the girl
who's not unattractive. It just she drew attention to herself
by saying, I am told that I look like Megan Fox.
And the minute she said it, I.

Speaker 1 (18:11):
Was like, Oh, she's gonna get it.

Speaker 2 (18:13):
She's gonna get it for this, by the way, you know,
the guy said he gets all the time that he
looks like Christian McCaffrey, but she didn't know who that
was and they cut it out, so they edited it,
and I did see that viral thing they're saying, Yeah,
he actually equally said something dumb.

Speaker 1 (18:26):
And guess what, he doesn't look like Christian McCaffrey. No,
he you see his belly in the mirror, Yeah, Jimmy
with the bad fade, you know. So the thing is
she resembles Megan Fox, but you have this image of
Megan Fox at are hottest, and again you're gonna meet
that expectation.

Speaker 2 (18:45):
You over problem it. I'm picturing that Megan Fox. I'm
picturing Meghan Fox leaning over the hood of a car
and Transformers. I'm picturing Meghan Fox.

Speaker 1 (18:55):
They're the same picture.

Speaker 2 (18:56):
I mean, spot, oh spot you you only see one
picture there because it's the same thing.

Speaker 1 (19:00):
They're the same person. That's why, you know, if you
want to take the lesson here. When people ask me, well,
who do you look like? I say Louis Guzman.

Speaker 2 (19:06):
Don't say yeah, don't say don't say like Mario Lopez
or no, yeah, I look like George Lopez.

Speaker 1 (19:13):
Who's the other handsome dude? What's theah? Don't say Mary Opez,
j Hernanthas do the other?

Speaker 2 (19:22):
Under promise I'm saying, oh yeah, under promise, over delivered it. Yeah,
tell people, oh you know, uh, Louis Guzman and even
this weekend when it comes to sexy time, after all
your NBA and your hockey whatever is your watch and
you love his blind you know, don't over promise and underproduce.

Speaker 1 (19:38):
Okay, don't say you're gonna rock her world and then
under delivered.

Speaker 2 (19:42):
Don't don't say you're don't say you're gonna rock her
world all night and all night to you is seven
minutes exactly.

Speaker 1 (19:48):
Yeah, So if you're gonna over promise, let it be
here on this show. Perfect. We'll see you.

Speaker 2 (19:53):
Guys back on Fox Sports Radio Monday, our usual time
back at Action.

Speaker 1 (19:58):
