Baltimore Orioles Red Alert!

One of my favorite radio segments on the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida is RED ALERT every Tuesday at 3:30ish! That’s where we put people, teams or situations on BLAST because they deserve to be ripped. (I also like the missile launch sound effects that Chris plays from the other side of the glass!)

Common targets are prima danna athletes who are unaware of their social surroundings. It is our duty to point out their public deficiencies.

Other targets can be coaches who make bonehead decisions or team owners and general managers who drive their fans nuts. It is our job to set the world straight, at least during our ten minute segment.

Since we’ve been doing this segment for a while, I also enjoy how the texters like to add their nominations to the list.  Add your Red Alert via text at 239-337-ESPN.

Also, in case you are new to the show, RED ALERT blasts do NOT have to come from the world of sports. In fact, as of late, we like to close the segment by ALWAYS blasting Russian President Vladimir Putin just because. However, I should note that our show goes to painstaking lengths to avoid divisive politics at all costs.

Red Alert Baltimore Orioles for starters! You made the list!  Let’s see who else did!

So let’s dial it up! Enjoy this week’s RED ALERT!

    Underwhelming. Never seen so many Americans root against a US team before.

    That didn’t end well.  No TV deal.  No major markets.  No teams.  No Conference.

    Conferences are not lining up to give them a home.

    Accused of cheating with an inflated handicap of 10 at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February.  Should have been a 3 according to Josh Allen.

    They are in a bad TV deal… for 13 more years.

    Suspended team TV broadcaster Kevin Brown for saying the Orioles have had a rough time with the Rays…which they have.  Ridiculous, petty, and OVERLY sensitive.  The O’s don’t get it.


    Stop the war ASS-CLOWN!
