Dan & Al's Relationship

Postby chevyman58 » Mon Aug 29, 2016 12:11 pm

Could feel the tension in the booth for years. Some broadcasts there were some snarky comments & long periods of awkward silence. In recent years Al has gotten less & less airtime. I stumbled upon this old article by accident, from 2010. Interesting.

Did any of you know this complex history between these guys?

My thoughts exactly. That can't be a real article can it?

Apparently it's fiction. I missed that little note at the top.

Don't feel too bad, I missed it too. Reading it left me scratching my head to say the least. Glad to know it wasn't legit.

Was wondering why someone would waste time writing this? Then I was wondering why I read it in the first place.... :?

I actually thought you posted it as a joke. :lol:

I mean, I get that the writer tried to make it funny, but I just don't see it. Not my type of comedy I guess.
