The Sports Hour with Christopher Rhoden
Neal Duncan from Polk County Sports Marketing was here for The Sports Hour and he mentioned the television version of The Sports Hour on the Polk Government TV network. Christopher lamented that he had never been a guest on the television show and that it was high time he was on. Listen to see what unfolded from that request…
Christopher is Single
For the majority of his 6+ years on this program, our Christopher has remained woefully un-partnered. If you’re a Mayhemmer, you know his love life, or lack thereof, is a frequent discussion on the show. Today, Len thought he would help Christoper out by bringing him up to date on the new dating trends and terms that he should expect to see in 2020. Heaven help him.
Christopher recently got the chance to talk with actor Clancy Brown! They talked about his role on ABC’s new show “Emergence” and about some of his roles from the past, including an interesting take on his Mr. Krabs character from Spongebob Squarepants.
The Feud To End All Feuds
If I were to talk about music feuds, I can guess a few that would come to mind. Tupac vs Biggie. Paul vs Yoko. Mariah vs…well, everybody. But I bring to you now THE feud to end all feuds: Smash Mouth vs The Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a hulk of a feud (get it? Because of all the smash…never mind).
So Smashing Pumpkins front man Billy Corgan recently did a Q&A session on Instagram and got around to talking about a missed opportunity involving the band being chosen to have a song of theirs for the ending credits of the animated film Shrek. Now, unless you’ve lived under a rock the last two decades or aren’t into overrated animated film franchises, you know that Shrek BEGINS and ENDS with songs from Smash Mouth. They are the Alpha and Omega. So you can imagine this claim from Corgan didn’t sit well with The Mouth.
Smash Mouth posted a statement to their Twitter account that included the following quote, ” If it feeds Billy’s ego to think they we’re [sic] first let him think that.”
What do you think is going to happen next? My money is on Smash Mouth. We know they have no qualms with taking the back streets. Their world is on fire and they actually like it! They will reign down on the Pumpkins with all the years, and we know that once the years start coming, THEY DON’T STOP COMING.
Christopher is Single
With any relationship you have, you have milestones that you reach together. Some of those milestones pertain to your ability to be completely comfortable to be yourself around your partner. Christopher doesn’t think that some of those milestones are attainable at all and that just may be why…CHRISTOPHER IS SINGLE!
Christopher got a chance to speak with comedian, actor, and writer Louie Anderson all about his new book that he wrote as a tribute to his mother and about playing Christine Baskets on FX’s “Baskets”, the role that recently earned him an Emmy!
