Cancer

There are a thousand articles about this already; but the only one of importance is the statement from this morning's program.

Get well soon, I-Man...and guys, if you haven't been tested, please do so.

We love the I-Dude. I'm pulling for him to get through this. Now those little knotheads will have some heavy competition at calf-roping this summer.

CG said...

That's a great way to look at it, Mike. :-)

Al said...

Yet, another battle that Imus will have to wage...

dee said...

We all love the I-Man - I'm very confident that he'll beat it and merely have to put up with the normal indignities that go along with the treatment :)

To be very honest, with all the coughing I was worried about lung cancer which I think would be a much tougher road - so I'm sort of relieved, which I doubt gives much comfort to the one getting the news...

Queenpat said...

Imus has about one half to 3/4 of a lung...I'd be coughing too. But Imus has had his battles with health issues and beat them all and no reason why he won't beat this either.

Al said...

Sad news, Mike...according to Imus' publicist, Matthew Hiltzik(who rides the bus around town! good lord!)

"this (condition) does not make him eligible for the kids'rodeo competition"...

Fake Cardinal Egan, bejeez. said...

What, no titty-baby Severin this morning? So sad. Suck it up, hedgehog.

Laree said...

Yeah Severin tried to worm his way back in but looks like somebody is paying attention, not so fast STEVE:)

Al said...

Wow, did they have to get physical with Severin?
Did they let the Godfather handle the situation?

CG said...

Oh, Jay Severin. That was hott.

I caught the first half of the program this morning and I thought they were doing great. There were many memorable moments, such as:
The World Baseball Classic? NOBODY CARES!; rooting for "Morehead"; the Cardinal singing about his "Wild Irish Hos;" Mr. Wolf kissing Mr. Imus, much to the chagrin of Mr. Dice Clay; and, of course, the fallout from yesterday's news.

But my favorite line had to be: "Charles and I have been in a Jewish marriage for 30 years - in other words, we've been married without the sex. Even though Charles has been desperately trying to change that." Nice. :)

Mike said...

Imus should feel lucky for that kiss yesterday. Warner looked pretty sexy in that blazer.

Al said...

For those of you who missed the part about Jay Severin yesterday...

...Today, as Imus was talking to Laura Ingraham, he said, "I threatened to shoot a local radio host", referring to Jay Severin...

Thanks for the explanation, I-Man...

Hat Tip To Alison

Note to Imus, it isn’t a Gun, it is a Side Arm. Imus had to have learned this in the Marines. “This Is My Weapon, This Is My Gun, This One Is For Shooting, And This One Is For Fun” I guess Jay “Steve” Severin wasn’t having fun? Well Imus is fond of telling people “I’m Not Happy, Till You’re Not Happy” Looks like Imus still has lead in his Pencil GRIN.

By the way, as a total non sequitir to anything on this post and digressing like a drunk Doris Kearns Goodwin on St. Patrick's Day, I've noticed something ever since the launch of the Imus podcast. I've always listened to all of the show, live spots during commercial breaks and all. The podcast is "commercial-free," but the Chamonix spot always gets worked into the body of the show, and I'm pretty sure that's the only member of the IFofA that gets this treatment.

This begs the question: How much freakin' money is the WABC sales staff drawing out of these people?

Al said...

Re: Chamonix...

The key is that Deirdre uses that stuff and with her having the total credibility and connections that she has, WABC is probably able to charge whatever they want, and it is all fine with Chamonix because every time Imus says that "Deirdre uses it"..

Well, cha-ching...cha-ching for Chamonix

Al said...

and, in case anyone is interested, Bernard and Sean Hannity will be in Hunnington, Long Island, March 21st, at Mark Levin's book signing...

Google it for more info, if you want.

CG said...

That book signing sounds like fun...I hadn't heard about that.
And I'm sure Warner looked pretty snazzy in his green. ;)

Oh, and don't worry about any alleged non sequiturs...I think in non sequiturs all the time, so it's all good. :)
