I for one loved Jane from Nova Scotias idea of having a Love Grotto. Ms. Aimee Mann seemed to like it too.

I will definitely say that last night's call was not my best work. But there were mitigating circumstances.

I haven't heard the show yet, but Love Grotto sounds rather Depravity's Rainbow-appropriate.

Aziz's laugh is insane.

It was worse than mine.

I will definitely say that last night's call was not my best work. But there were mitigating circumstances.

1) He was in the studio with his brother and Aziz Anzari, only one of the best comics in the world, who were both firmly in his corner.
2) He emerged from the depths. I got Cobra Kai'd, as someone on Twitter said. H-Man had the element of surprise to his advantage.
3) It's my second call ever to the show, whereas H-Man's been calling in or making studio appearances for years.

These are NOT excuses. This was just one battle in the war to become Tom's protege. Everything is fair in this battle. This just means my game will get stepped up.

I think being in studio definitely helped H-Man in my opinion. You're better on the phone than H-Man, I will say.

Curious to see how this protege thing pans out. Are we going to find out in February? Who REALLY knows for sure?

Overall, a great show (as always). I called in for the first time, and was a bit nervous! Hopefully I can work up the courage to call more! It definitely adds to the listening experience!

RE: The Best Show Protégé Question '11

All I know is I'm hearing ALL Hanks and ZERO Arties. Come on, prospective protégés, step it up.

Also: I was hoping the Zodiac Killer would throw his hat into the protégé ring.

Tom commenting on the H-Man's enunciation: "No offense to this kid... nice guy, but half the time he sounds like a manure salesman with a mouthful of samples."

This made me lose it while I was riding a crowded train...

From soup to nuts, the whole show was top shelf.

Even funnier upon re-listening with the knowledge that H-Man was in the studio when this was said.

I have a problem with Greg comparing Tom to Kevin Durant.  Tom is a veteran here. If Durant quit tomorrow there would be numerous ESPN specials on "what could have been."  Tom has said he is around week to week, and when he does he will go down as one of the best of all time.  You'd have to put him down as Kobe.

H-Man still has the upper hand.  He has some fire in him, remember the protege-off against Wally.  Tom ended the show saying they both had disappointed him and he wasn't handing it over.  H-Man called him out on it, there are too many yes men around, the host of the Best Show doesn't back down.

I'd like to hear Philly Boy Roy throw his Eagles hat in the ring.

Until rape charges are filed against Tom, my mind refuses to associate him with Kobe. How dare you. You might as well say "He's our Roethlisberger", or "He's our OJ", or "He's our Fatty Arbuckle". If I am making a sports comparison, he's my Kareem Abdul-Jabbar He's graceful, he's got mad skills, and there's nothing you can do to stop his metaphorical towering hook shot.
