The Desiree SHOW Episode 2 of Beat The Outsiders, NFL Weekly Pickem by Skateboarders.

IMG_1369

Well episode two of The Desiree Show’s “Beat the Outsiders” was as much fun as expected and as much smack talk as I had hoped plus you got a glimpse also of our actually text threads but a little censored, something I would love to share with you, but I believe you can just visualize from the show. You just can’t see the pictures.

Steve Olson and Sal Barbier join me at the Dash Studios, while Kenny Hughes called in via NYC. Raw and unedited with lots of smack talk, strong biased NFL opinions and picks, competitiveness, sass and lots of laughs!!

Also alot of protectiveness over their picks, especially the birthday to boy, Cowboy Kenny.IMG_1365(1)

Sensitivity by Sal for “his” Saints, Tigers and of course his spirit stick, (which we are all still patiently waiting to actually see even a photo of).

While first place (after week 5)  Mr SKOL Olson stays his calm self with witty jabs and subtle words throughout the show

On the thread or in The Desiree SHOW Weekly NFL Pickem, Rob Welsh, Lance Dawes. Chris Pastras, Chris Ray, Packy Fancher, Vinny Ponte and JT Aultz.

Stay tuned for episode 3, 4, and 5 and….. we will try quarterly, but just like skateboarders we did it our way, after week 5.  Hopefully the entire crew can make it in once, plus special guest including Jeff Ament, GLove and Ben Harper are slated as well.

Heads up on the video dropping from our inaugural show that kick it off, thanks to former center Ted Newsome.

If you missed the show on Dash Wednesday, October 11th you can listen to it in its the raw and unedited form on Itunes TheDesireeSHOW or via Soundcloud.
