La Descarga Deportiva

For a good sports talk show which focuses heavily on local sports, I highly recommend La Descarga Deportiva–weeknights at 6pm on AM radio 670. Frequently the introductory banter between the regular callers and the hosts–Jerry del Castillo and Pepe Campos, El Decano de los Deportes and El Chamby, respectively–are enough to make me laugh. Unfortunately, while bilingual, it’s mostly Spanish.
Here’s a recent exchange I heard on the program:

Caller: I used to be down on the Marlins owner, Loria. But no more.
Host [Jerry del Castillo]: Glad to hear it.
Caller: I wish him a great 2009.
Host: [Suspiciously] Care to explain the shift?
Caller: I figure if he has a great year, the Marlins will trade him.
