We’re taking some heat on the Green Zone. But if we dish it out — as we do sometimes — we better be able to take it.
The Green Zone has moved into an earlier time slot, from 3-6 p.m. each weekday, and it’s going province-wide. We’re actually called “The Green Zone with Jamie Nye the Sports Guy.” So we know who’s the star, who gets paid the most.
And our show’s introduction says “Sports… and anything else going on.” That’s a lot of latitude; our critics say it takes us out of our area of expertise.
That means we know something about something. There are listeners who are upset that we changed the schedule, all for a damned sports show with a bunch of “no-nothing blowhards.” That was an actual text. Likely from a relative.
We get it.
Jamie, Woodsy, Arielle and our cast come from sports backgrounds, but nobody talks sports all the time. We have opinions about Donald Trump, Kevin O’Leary, downtown parking, doggy do-do and train crossings. Some of us dislike Jose Bautista and Ben Roethlisberger. And some of us are friends with Henry Burris. We also like facts, rumours, the CFL, junior hockey and really bad jokes.
If you like really bad jokes, tune us in.
And yes, I know that’s a double entendre.
