(AP Photo. Stan Kasten will co-host 106.7 The Fan's Mike Wise show from 10-2 mid-day today. No coincidence that the weather forecast is for unseasonably warm weather in DC today - look out for hurricane-force gusts of hot air blowing throughout DC/MD/VA today.)
Stan Kasten takes to the airwaves today on 106.7 The Fan's Mike Wise show from 10-2, presumably to talk baseball and try to sell some Nationals tickets (plenty of good seats still available!).
One question that comes to mind immediately: does anyone at 106.7 The Fan know there's a professional baseball team in Washington, and that Stan Kasten is President of that team? We seem to remember one time, when he was still writing for the Washington Post, Mike Wise wrote a piece in the newspaper about the Nationals. But Wise's recollection of that column is probably even fuzzier than ours.
Regardless, any break from the 24-7 Redskins/Tiger Woods chatter on the DC-airwaves is welcome as far as we're concerned: we'll certainly be tuning in to Stan's infomercial. Apparently Stan's got Adam Dunn and Jim Riggleman lined up as guests, too. We're thinking about trying to keep a running Tweet-log of Stan's biggest on-air whoppers -- if we can keep up -- so check that out over on Twitter.
