JT the Brick Alert: Here Comes Stupid

Posted By on Tue, Jun 19, 2007 at 5:03 PM


It’s bad enough that Giants fans have to watch a team whose play evokes the Apollo I launch-pad test while the ongoing disgrace that is Ol’ Moon Head chases Hank Aaron’s home run record. But this weekend, a day at the ballpark will suck even harder: Fox radio ’tard JT the Brick will be hanging out, rooting on his beloved Yankees while spewing his brain pus at unsuspecting ears.

Granted, sports radio isn’t known for attracting the best and the brightest; KNBR’s Damon Bruce proves nightly that one need only a healthy hyoid bone to host a call-in show. But listening to the Brick, aka John Tournour, is like having hot fat poured on your brain. Trust us: If the ATF could have blasted his show at the Branch Davidians in Waco, the poor bastards would have run from the compound with hands over their ears, begging for mercy.

We’ll give the Brick credit for his ceaseless bashing of Bonds over the steroids scandal. On the other hand, as Deadspin pointed out last year, when presented a chance to raise the ’roids issue during an interview with then-Giant Steve Finley, JT uttered not a single question about it. So listen up, Brickster: You might despise Jim Rome, the guy who launched your career, but at least he doesn’t insert his entire head up the ass of his interview subjects. Speaking of which, maybe that’s why your face so often looks ruddy and chafed. -- Martin Kuz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
