The Sports Junkies
The Junkies are four buddies from PG County, MD, who blew up on the WJFK airwaves starting in the summer of 1996. John Auville (Cakes), Eric Bickel (EB), Jason Bishop (Lurch) and John-Paul Flaim (JP) started a cable access tv show in Bowie in 1995 and since then they’ve taken over the coveted morning drive slot on 106.7 The Fan!
Listen and follow along EB’s Entertainment Page, with a web roundup of links provided for you to read more on the stories you heard on the Junkies.
With the Junkies broadcasting from Quicken Loans National, Lurch took a spot overlooking the 10th hole to hilariously call Tiger Woods’ tee shot in a low, “golf tone.”
In the spirit of U.S. versus Germany, the Junkies requested their 22-year-old female intern, aptly named Paulina, to squeeze into a tight little Lederhosen, and bob for bratwursts out of a bin full of German beer (Photos and Video).
EB recently ran into a compromising predicament, when he found his son playing beer pong with soda. But did he take the cups away, or just let him play?
In a series of updates which have gone overlooked, Lurch is considering training his dog in German, and has been begging for free dog crates because he’s nubbity nubbs.
JP, not once, but twice, attempted and failed to get the Fox 5 news team to join him in an ‘I Believe’ chant Monday morning. Here’s the awkward exchange, remixed to Bruce The Hugger’s “I Believe That I Am Nubbs.”
It’s the opinion of Redskins trademark attorney Bob Raskopf that the Redskins actually fared “better” in the most recent ruling cancelling their federal trademark protections, and when the appeal process is over, “we’re gonna win just like we did last time.”
Surely by now you’ve heard there’s some controversy about town. Should Lurch let his dog pee in his neighbors’ yard?
It’s okay if you don’t know anything about U.S. soccer, or soccer in general, because the Americans just upset Ghana, and we have this amazing chant to rally around: “I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win!”
An escaped bull was running freely through the streets of Baltimore Friday afternoon, before it was put down by police, according to WJZ’s Gigi Barnett.
