Jay Mohr Sports / Mohr64 Matchup Links
« on: March 18, 2015, 12:52:57 pm »
Hints
On your Mac or PC, these links should open in another tab. If you use Chrome on a Mac, command-click should open the new tab without switching to it, so you can open a bunch of these at once, each in their own tab. Windows users, let me know what key to hold in a reply.

PLEASE do not post tweets with hashtags to all the matches. Bookmark this page in your browser instead. Tweets with hashtags pollute the matches and make them difficult for other to follow and judge. Your intentions are great, but the outcome is bad.

Jay Mohr Sports / Mohr 64 2015 FAQ
« on: March 08, 2015, 04:56:48 pm »
As told to me by Diamond Dan Beyer, Mohr 64 Commissioner.

What is the #Mohr64??
The 2015 Mohr 64 will span 4 weeks, as we find out who the ultimate tweeter is on Jay Mohr Sports.  This tournament is separate from the THTC on the show, so please continue to tweet the show for the Twitter Hat Trick Contest.

The event is run like any other bracket tournament, where the winner of each game advances to the next round until 1 champion is crowned.

What is a “game”?
Well, each round is covers certain dates.  Each contestant will send in 3 tweets that will be judged against their opponents 3 tweets. Over the span of each timeframe, each contestant will send in 3 tweets and 3 tweets ONLY.  Whoever’s tweets are voted better will advance.

How do I compete and tweet?
Each tweet will need to include the special hashtag assigned to each game.  For example, the tweet would look like this… “That’s all the money we had, KAREN!! #GT1JMS”
   -You don’t need to include “#jaymohrsports” or “@Jaymohr37”, just the game hashtag.
   -If you tweet the show, and want to use that same tweet as 1 of the 3 for your game, that is fine.
   -Also with the game hashtag used only, you have more characters to tweet with.
   -You will also be sent your specific game hashtags in a separate tweet from Dan Beyer. 

When can I tweet?
You can send in the tweet at anytime on anyday during the timeframe, up until 6pm ET/3pm PT on the last day.

You don’t have to listen live.  You can always listen on the podcast, iHeart channel, or if the show is delayed in your market.  This allows you to compete on your time.

You can send in tweets on the first day or last, it doesn’t matter.  But they need to be sent in by that 6pm ET/3pm PT deadline of the final day.

Tweeting rules
Once you send a tweet, do not delete it.  We check often, and can tell if a tweet disappears.  You are allowed only 3, and those 3 will be judged against your opponents 3 tweets.

The tweets should be in regards to the topics that are being discussed on those days of broadcast.

Voting process
The voting process will take place off the air.  Votes will be taken by the Jay Mohr Sports crew to decide who advances.

To allow for participation, each tweet that is sent in for a game can be favorited.  The most favorites someone gets in a “game” will count for a portion of the vote.  So, if someones 3 tweets get 86 favorites total, and another gets 12, then there will be one vote for the person who gets 86.  Remember, this will only count for about 1/5 of the total vote.

Other notes
Original bracket (before play-in games).

The bracket will be updated on FOXSportsradio.com.  Please check there.

The dates of the rounds are as follows….
   March 11-12: play in games
   March 16-19: 1st round
   March 23-24: 2nd round
   March 25-26: Sweet 16 or “Tweet 16” as J. Cobb calls it
   March 30-31: Elite 8
   April 1-2: Final Four
   April 6-7: Championship

When you win the Twitter Hat Trick Contest on Jay Mohr Sports, you have ONE and only ONE obligation. When the show started in January, 2013, we listeners and tweeters began a tradition of congratulating the winner and the winner thanking people individually. In 2015, we know it can be overwhelming, but we still do it. When I won in February, 2015, it took 2-1/2 hours after the show to get to everyone. No kidding.

So, when you win the THTC, make sure that before you go to bed that night, you get everyone thanked who congratulated you. Your notifications will be overflowing with love and your phone's battery will be near death. But you'll plow through because that is how we roll.

Jay Mohr Sports / Grammunition
« on: March 04, 2015, 12:07:15 am »
When Graham in ATL was whining in my DMs incessantly last week about whatever he didn't like, I suggested he take it here rather than Twitter or Rapid Fire or wherever else. Note that he didn't take it here.

2 years ago, when everyone was bitching about the show, JJ asked everyone to take it here. There's more space to make an argument. It's not flooding people's timelines with silly negativity. And it's a fairly private space that everyone isn't stumbling over. This is nothing new to the old schoolers.

Odds on Graham ever seeing this? Lay them, I'll take the under.

« on: June 23, 2014, 11:28:00 pm »
Tuesday, June 24 is the 1 year anny of Great Bluedini inventing #CopMonkeyBear. It was a fantastic afternoon of fun after he planted the seed, and then we made a little video game out of it. I added several new opponents to play against this evening.

Jay Mohr Sports / Countdown to Bakersfield!
« on: April 25, 2014, 10:22:58 am »
15 days! Who within 100 miles of Bakersfield doesn't have a ticket yet? This is already on track to be the BIGGEST JMS meet-up of the year. So go get your ticket now and post here when you do!

In the seat selector, it looks about 1/2 filled with about 400 seats left. They haven't opened the balconies (yet).

Jay Mohr Sports / Too complicated for radio – SportsNet/LA debacle.
« on: April 04, 2014, 01:00:27 pm »
I've been on this topic for a month now, but finally, there are hard numbers in the press that back up and exceed what Crazy Paranoid Brad has been spouting. Even Ramona Shelburne (senior writer, ESPN.com) called me nuts earlier this week on Twitter.

Here's an article about the breakdown in talks with DirecTV.

Although Time Warner Cable has not disclosed the price it is seeking from distributors, industry sources have pegged the fee for the first year of the contract at north of $4 per subscriber, per month with increases throughout the deal.

Other articles peg the number as high as $5/month per subscriber. That's $48 - $60 per year per subscriber. TWC is not offering any option of putting SportsNet/LA on a paid/premium tier. So, like your grandparents who don't give a shit about anything other than Wheel and Jeopardy get "taxed" $50+/year.

It's a horribly dishonest revenue model, and it's important that it fails. Regardless of what the YES network got away with in New York, it can't happen here. I'll double down on the dishonesty charge. TWC is just doing what they do. The Dodgers knew up front how this would have to work, because there is no other way to get that kind of revenue out of TV. They suck for being part of this.

Realistically, DirecTV and cable companies aren't gonna say yes for anything north of $0.50/month per subscriber or (far more likely) as a premium/paid station. The product TWC is trying to force down everyone's throat just isn't worth anywhere near what they think.

Jay Mohr Sports / Tapped out today after Obamacare ad...
« on: March 25, 2014, 02:03:56 pm »
...and listened to Dave Mustaine episode of Mohr Stories.

JJ, here's the math. As a 43 year old self-employed guy with no kids, I buy my own health insurance. I'm not a hypochondriac. I have no pre-existing conditions. And I'm happy to buy my own cough medicine. My rates to switch to a "compliant" policy jumped $200/month last year. That's $2400 in disposable income that can't be spent on T-shirts and comedy clubs. Or put another, it's 4 T-mobile cell phone contracts. In return, I get crap I don't need, like pediatric dental and OB/GYN, you know, because my previous plan was a "sham plan" that wouldn't protect me if my baby teeth got a cavity or I got something stuck up my vagina (like this morning).

Benefit of the doubt to you, since this "have important guy on to talk about Obama's brackets and then he gets to tell us how wonderful the ACA is" is all over corporate sports talk now, and obviously comes from on high. I fled to sports talk 20 years ago because politics is shrill and all the players suck, and I'd just like a few hours a day when I don't have to hear about it. This month, all of sports media is breaking its deal with me. That's not 100% of your listener base, but I'd bet it's a good 1/3.

Jay Mohr Sports / Mohrrior Award Nominations
« on: December 10, 2013, 04:40:46 pm »
Here's how it works. Nominations open thru December 17, 2013. Each user can post THREE nomination for THREE award, so pick carefully and try to be inclusive. If you feel that someone else should be nominated for a previously mentioned award, nominate them. I'll compile these on December 18, and we'll vote amongst ourselves for 10 awards.

You don't have to be a #THTC member to nominate or be nominated. #THTC members are expected to come strong!

My Award Nomination... "Best Mohrrior Meet-up with JJ" -- J. Cobb Dodger game.

(Approved by Erin not Amber. -Brad)

(Changed rules on 12-Dec to encourage more nominations.)

Jay Mohr Sports / Has Adoption Touched Your Life?
« on: November 01, 2013, 10:28:50 pm »
Sloan (aka @VAGamecock) sent a cool care package from his family's adoption adventure to the show today and I know many of us who have followed his family's story were really moved by it. So I thought it would be cool to have a thread on how adoption has touched your life. I'll start.

Both my Mom and my Dad were adopted at birth. In my Mom's case, the biological mother was a (2nd?) cousin of her own Mother. My Mom's Dad came into the picture when she was about 10, married my Grandmother, and I'm pretty sure adopted her (again). In my Dad's case, a total stranger gave a precious gift to a young Don and Betty (of fleeting Jay Mohr Sports fame).

Jay Mohr Sports / What's wrong with the show.
« on: September 12, 2013, 10:26:55 pm »
I DM'd with Brian_C60 this afternoon a little bit, to see what was up. JJ, here in a nutshell is what's "wrong" with your show. It's too damned good. The regulars on Twitter and a whole bunch more people, basically arrange their schedules around 9-noon (or 12-3) to keep it free to listen and interact. Even when we don't get tweets read on the show, we're all having a lot of fun cracking jokes on Twitter and keeping up with each other. There are a good 150-200 hard core fans of the show. If I could pick a bunch of people to work with, these clowns would be my choice.

JJ has created an addiction more potent than crack, and that's a good thing, although sometimes, to make it work with the rest of life, some might need a little time away. Brian will be back one day, and I'll pass him my pipe.
