Chris Russell filled in for Chad Dukes vs. The World for six days.


On one of those days, the Nationals played a 12:35 p.m. game against the Pirates, affording Russell an extra two hours and 34 minutes – plus an additional 30 minutes for the post-game show – to make it into the office and start the show on time. Which, he did not.

Obviously, Russell took zero personal accountability for his late arrival, which literally threw management into a last-minute tailspin about who should start the show in his stead.

"I think here at this station, it's more people just making fun of me and having fun with me, and teasing me," Russell opined at one point. "Whereas, at the other place, there was genuine dislike from some people."

Wholly inaccurate. Russell is genuinely disliked here, too.

Thank you for returning, Dukes. While you were out...
