Buy Kenny Mayne's book
Here's what happened. Kenny was on, it was an obviously bad connection, and he was maintaining his typical, dry, deadpan sense of humor that has earned him such acclaim. Suddenly, he was cut off. This lead to a rant about what a "prick" Kenny Mayne is. How dare he hang up on KQ like that? I mean, how is it possible that someone could have a bad phone line? Perhaps, since he had an intestinal problem, as the show's Terri Traen later pointed out, he had to make a mad dash to the restroom. In any event, Kenny is not a "prick". But this is the KQ M.O. If you don't have the same sense of humor (i.e. blatant, racist or scatological humor), or if you aren't overt and gregarious, you're a prick.
They gave an example of how he was flown out to Los Angeles to be interviewed to be host for ABC's Power of 10. He had the audacity to turn the job down, because he didn't want it. Even after the show had flown him out there at a cost of like, 1000 bucks! That's.... less than they give away per episode. God, Kenny. Such a jerk, turning down a job like that. No wonder everyone but some idiots in Minneapolis loves you.
They went further to talk about how much they hated the "cross eyed guy" or the "guy with the glasses" because they were "too cool for school". Again, their issue seems to be with guys who deliver highlights in a distinct manner that's both dry and laid back. Sometimes Scott can be a bit bombastic, and van Pelt is incredibly easy going, but still, forgive them for knowing what their doing (just keep Stu Scott away from print, and I don't have a problem with him). I will take a bunch catch phrases and informed sports journalism over bluster, a holier than thou attitude, and lazy journalism any day.
In any event, buy Kenny Mayne's book. Hopefully I've done my part to salvage his reputation here in Minnesota.
EDIT: Now, you can listen to it! The interview starts at the 18 minute mark.
