It feels good to get back to my radio roots, thanks to Clay
First of all, welcome to all the new followers and those who have slid into my DMs (@joekinseyexp) to say kind words about my performance on OutKick radio the last two weeks. I’m sure Clay didn’t know he hired a 5-8 minute radio genius when he brought me to this site way back on June 1.
It was nice of Clay to finally bring on the only OutKick employee who has spent the last five years toiling away on Single-A radio in Toledo, Ohio for one hour every Friday. I gave that Toledo show my all. I brought in film legend Lisa Ann to spice it up. I helped make headlines in 2019 when the ECHL commissioner broke down and told me his beloved trophy had been stolen by one of the league’s former teams. I threw Chick-fil A chicken biscuits to NFL practice squad wide receivers live on radio — for the video stream, of course.
After one particular radio show, I walked the Toledo streets as the current Titans backup quarterback threw footballs over four lanes of (light) traffic. I then jumped in a public fountain to cool off.
I’ve been face-to-face with Ray Lewis, asking the tough questions, like whether he would steal Terrell Owens’ speech time at the Hall of Fame inductions since T.O. wouldn’t be attending. The blue checkmark media nerds who were there in Canton were furious with me, but guess what made headlines in the Washington Post that day? My question. Ray’s speech went an astounding 33 minutes and 17 seconds. That’s me in my Twitter header photo (@joekinseyexp) hiding from Ray in case he tried to murder me right there in front of the blue checkmarks.
Guys, I’ve been preparing to be Clay’s Best Recurring Guest of 2021 for at least the last decade of my life. Recurring guests never know when the plug will be pulled. That means you have to be ready to lay it all on the line. 100%. Balls to the walls. I’m not like the rest of these media nerds going from one radio show to the next, looking for their next step up the ladder. I ain’t leaving Ohio (until the kids graduate), and I sure as hell hope OutKick is my last stop in this career field.
George Strait said it best: “I ain’t here for a long time. I’m here for a good time.”
• Weather update…the snow could be coming in to Orchard Park earlier than expected on Saturday. The Weather Channel is saying snow showers with steadier white stuff after midnight. Keep your eyes on that forecast. Winds out of the west, folks. People who live around the Great Lakes know what that means.
• The Powerball has grown to $640 million. That’s right, we have a mega-lottery showdown between the behemoths. The Mega is up to $750 million for Friday’s drawing. Never forget there was one ticket drawn for the $1.537 billion Mega in 2018. Think about that today while you’re at a job you hate.
• Oh, I see that stadium parking lots are being used as vaccination centers where people pull up and get a shot. Remember when I said the vaccinations should’ve been run by Chick fil A? Suddenly the mass parking lot idea seems like a great idea. Big government is always a step behind.
Numbers from :
Josh Allen completed 27 passes 10+ yards downfield while traveling 8+ MPH during the regular season, 2nd-most by a QB in a season since 2016, behind only Patrick Mahomes (2018).

The Golden Gate Hotel and Casino was opened by John Miller as Hotel Nevada at 1 Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas on Jan 13, 1906. It was the first concrete hotel structure in Las Vegas. Most rooms were 10' x 10' and room and board was $1.00 per day. https://t.co/T3SIrAeqj3 pic.twitter.com/PL3Eb14Zzj
