All thanks to the amazing sport that is Bo-Taoshi, the Deuce of Davenport just blew up in South Africa. SAfm’s The Lifestyle Show with Michelle Constant talked to the Deuce’s own Mustafa Redonkulous last Friday and we just got a copy of the interview to share with all you readers outside of South Africa that have yet to hear it.
Michelle is a seasoned journalist who has interviewed the likes of Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson and Henry Rollins and now she can add Mustafa Redonkulous to that list. Isn’t that something? To be honest, we’re a little shocked here at the Deuce. Just a little though, I always knew we’d be huge in South Africa.
Click the link below to give a listen to our boy talkin about the sport Bo-Taoshi, Japanese politics and, yes, even Godzilla. Sadly, he ran out of time before he could ask them how they are handling that District 9 situation. Sorry Turd, maybe next time. Here’s the interview link:
SAfm Interview – Mustafa
Special shout out to all the new South African readers of the Deuce of Davenport, welcome to the site. Don’t worry if we don’t update for a day or two, we all have day jobs here but we’ll always find the time to throw something new and random up eventually. Cheers!

Thats right, according to a British study sports talk radio and driving do not mix. If a driver is listening to sports talk radio while driving the loss in concentration can be equal to being drunk while driving. From the Houston Chronicle,
…motorists who listen to sports commentary on the radio experience a 20 percent drop in reaction time compared to non-fan drivers.
That drop in concentration, for a driver traveling at 70 mph, can add 20 feet to a car’s stopping distance – slightly exceeding, according to the Transport Research Laboratory study, the lost reaction time for a motorist driving at the legal limit for intoxication.
In other words, being a fan really can be hazardous to your health…
Who knew, right? Living in Washington D.C. I sold my car a long time ago, but when I did drive and listen to talk radio I don’t ever remember getting that into an on-air discussion and being all that distracted. Then again, I’ve also talked on my cell phone and/or texted while driving too, so I might not be the best one to talk to about distracted driving. Nevertheless, now that we know how dangerous this is, it must be stopped! Someone call Oprah!
Take this lesson to heart super fan! You with your call-in commentary and witty repertoire with the jockeys on the air, yeah i’m talking to you! For the love of God, listen to music while driving. If you listen to sports talk radio don’t drive, and if you are driving don’t listen to sports talk radio. Do it for the children! THE CHILDREN!!
