#tbt Tourney Time Flashback ‘Boobar To Boobar’- [AUDIO]
Tourney Time starts tomorrow!
Eastern Maine High School Basketball tournament time starts tomorrow, at the Cross Insurance Center! It's a rite of passage for anyone who has grown up in the state of Maine. People travel from all over the state to enjoy the action and support their school and local community. Simply put, if you don't love tourney time, you aren't a true Mainer (Okay, I made that last part up.)
I want to say the year was 2007, but I could be wrong. One morning we made a morning show bit out of an impression I have been doing for years on the air. I didn't think much of it, we were just riffing, joking around and having a good time. Well, come to find out that after we replayed it a few times (the first of about a million and counting) that people really responded to it and have been ever since.
Everywhere I go, Z listeners come up to me and say the now classic lines from it "Darlene Boobar over to Misty Bickford"..."Boobar for the win!" I have no idea why it has caught on the way it did. Honestly, the feedback has been about 99% positive, minus one complaint letter a few years back and for the record, the whole thing is done with a wink and smile.
I have even had people send pictures of license plates that name check our "greatest hit"
In 2015, we even had T-shirts made!
Just last week, a Z listener sent this awesome pic!
