Turn Off MASN (or at least hit mute)

With apologies to the many great people who work at MASN, it's time for all Nationals fans to pledge to go 100% Charlie and Dave until MASN gets rid of Rob Dibble and his insufferable act.

Today, in what I guess is his first public appearance since we learned that he'd been taunting the best pitcher on the planet to "suck it up" and pitch with a torn ulnar collateral ligament, Dibble went on Jim Bowden's XM show to attack the people foolish enough to actually listen to what he had to say. (Somehow the combined amount of assholery in that broadcast didn't spontaneously tear a hole in the universe and plunge us all into a different dimension of time and space).

What his comments (summarized on the Bog) show is that Dibble has learned nothing from this episode, and the only solution is to take him off the air.

But since all indications are that Dibble will be back tonight, it seems the only way this is going to happen is for fans to shut him off ourselves.


Look people, we have a great radio team in Charlie and Dave. Just hit mute, go to 1500 AM, and enjoy a lovely broadcast without the non-stop obnoxious self-aggrandizement. Shoot, even on MLB.tv the radio broadcast is now synchronized.

Now, if you're one of the poor souls who can't get the game on the radio, you don't have only that options. You can turn off the sound and put on some music. Or you could try closed captioning and only look when there's some bit of information you want to find out. Or you could just "suck it up" and try to enjoy the broadcast despite Dibble.

But for everyone else, do yourself a favor and go with Charlie and Dave. You won't be sorry, and maybe by the time Strasburg comes back, Dibble will be gone for good.
