From Friday, October 3rd's show, another diversion down the grocery aisle, this time with the most wonderful Tim Kurkjian

Summer of ‘69

Talking groceries with Tim Kurkjian
Trading tips how to save a dime
Tony loves the refugee Safeway
Grapefruit juice for $3.69

These two guys supposed to be sports pros
Pricing fruit and avacados
Timmy says he just eats for fuel
Are they gonna talk Nationals?

Oh, hey, Jeanne look out now
There's Timmy over by the cashier
Cruising at Harris Teeter
Every day he’s gonna be there
Says he can’t cook to save his life

Ain't no use in complainin'
Tony’s got a show to do
Who knows what they’ll talk about next time
Hey, Tim, you like fondue?

Listenin’ to this lame podcast
Delay sometimes will last forever
Oh, and when you tell this tale
Fine line between stupid and clever
Who cares about your fruit juice price

Oh, yeah.
Grapefruit juice for 3.69, ohhhhh
