Covino & Rich— Thursday, 1/25/18

Show Topics

  • Remember how shady the Golden Girls were? That show was way ahead of it’s time in terms of women and behavior. Was Blanche the first big TV Slut? Or was it from another show? Charles in Charge, Gideon’s Island, Married with Children, all those shows had characters who were made out to be sluts, but they were all around the same time. So who was the first big TV slut? Apparently it was Betty White’s character from the Mary Tyler Moore show. That was the first TV slut, and from there the characters grew. Captain Kirk may have been the first male TV Slut, and he was sleeping with people from all over the galaxy.

 

  • Vince McMahon is bringing back the XFL, or so he says, and it looks like it will begin in 2020. Is another football league what we really need right now? It would open up more opportunity for players coming out of college to play ball, but the whole gimmick of the XFL was that it was rougher than the NFL. So with all the regulations and rules coming out in the NFl today, would a more violent league really thrive in today’s PC world? Also what players would really go?

 

  • When you watch a home improvement show or a house flipping show, do you ever think to yourself that it looks like something you could do. Everyone watches shows like Flip or Flop and Property Brothers and think that all it takes is a week to do these projects. Really it’s a long and grueling process that takes tons of money and time to complete. It’s as deceptive as porn expectations, but people think that a 22 minute episode make it look easy.

 

  • Rich has a theory on credit cards and money management. We are never taught money management is high school or college, and that’s probably the reason why so many kids leave school with mountains of credit card debt. How did Rich come up with this thought? Well there was a story that 50 Cent allegedly had 700 Bitcoin that he totally forgot about.
