Dial Duel: Boston sports radio grows

After UB posted that story he heard about free agent Paul Konerko on ESPN Radio 890 Boston, he received numerous emails asking about the new station.

Well here is the scoop, ESPN radio recently joined the Boston sports landscape with stations in
Worcester (WWTM-AM 1440), West Yarmouth (WXTK-FM 95.1), Boston (WAMG-AM 890),
Lowell (WLLH-AM 1400). The lineup is the same as the National broadcast, with Mike and Mike and the Dan Patrick Show, as well as The Drive with Michael Felger locally.

Felger (left) was a part of the Big Show on WEEI before getting his own show. Felger is pretty good with football, but lost when it comes to baseball and other sports...

...and UB still doesn't know how he bagged local Boston anchor Sarah Underwood...

A few spots down the dial, WEEI continues to be the highest rated station in the country, with UB's former bosses Dennis and Callahan, Dale and Holley, The Big Show and Ted Nation...UB flips back and forth between D&C and Stern in the morning, can't stand Dale Arnold, and gets annoyed with all 10 guests on the Big Show talking over each other all the time, so ESPN radio is a nice change of pace. Ted Nation is hit or miss...and of course WEEI has all the Sox games...

A few years ago Sporting News Radio 1510 The Zone stepped up to challenge WEEI, with Boston Celtics basketball and Boston sports radio icon Eddie Andelman. Sean McDonough had an afternoon show called where he said he was going to "Raise the Bar" of sports talk, but he was gone after a year, replaced by 3 would-be interns on The Die Hards, which UB thinks is almost impossible to listen to.

"Hi how are ya?"

This variation of the game has become very popular because of the multitude of tournaments planted by excellent players, and many web sites devoted to this type of game. In poker, texas hold 'em get to own only two cards, followed by a round of betting. Then the dealer puts three cards on the table common to all - "the flop" betting again, another community card - "turn", auction and last community card - "the river". It is followed by the last round of betting, and if it has been more than one player with the cards in his hand wins the best 5 card hand built with two player cards and three of the five common. The hierarchy of the system is the same as in poker classic. In both variants of the game can be in the form of plant diversity "in the dark", before looking at cards, which greatly affects the dynamics of the game. In most games, Texas Hold'em, two players must post a blind, the so-called big and small "blind"
