    We ran in a lot of the same circles when we were young but I don't think I ever met him. I wish I did now. He's funny as hell.

    he was talking about being at the bruins/leafs game down 4-1 with 10 minutes left, he wanted to leave but he made himself stay just to glare at the leaf fans that would be celebrating in the bruins house...

    i find bill burr very funny, i guess he used to be called billy burr (according to colin Quinn on o and a) and he wanted to be taken more serious so wants to go by bill, so some of the comics still call him billy to annoy him

    ya, bill says pete had pics to buy for him to sign, so bill being a redsox fan bought the 1975 iconic pic of pete sliding head first into 3rd in the series win against boston. bill asked him to sign it, bill, sorry about that, pete. rose said i'm not sorry tho, bill said ya i know, but its funny that way...bill then asked pete to sign the 1976 pic of pete beating the yankees, as ...bill, your welcome, pete rose. pete replied, we swept those fuckers...i just thought it was funny that after all these years pete rose is still a head case.

    I love Billy Red Face's podcast. My only single pet peeve is he really doesn't proofread emails at all. He spends time just trying to decode his fans shitty writing, and it gets a little annoying. His home insurance issues have made him quite angry AND FUNNY as of late.
