The interview after the first game in which Neal’s team of thugs won 5 to 4 after I turned over the puck. Neal’s ringer friend found him wide-open on the side of the net and like all of Neal’s goals except one, he just had to tap it in. It was horrible. It was a nightmare. The nightmare was long from over though.

We then had the shootout. I beat Neal 1-0 in this competition. He claims that he would have won but he wanted to give me something.

A second game was played where my team won 6-1. Neal was completely shut down in this game by my defense and also the fantastic goaltending of Sparty who I would determine as the MVP of the day. He played for Neal’s team twice and my team once. He won all three games.

In the third game, things got off to a hotly contested start but eventually my defense and Mikey P’s goaltending broke down. Neal had three goals. We lost 6 to 1. I was held o-fer on the day in a truly Joe Thornton soft-performance.

We’ll have plenty more coverage on this tomorrow, plus some audio. Here are some pictures….

My short-shorts were supposed to provide a psychological advantaged. Unfortunately it backfired.

The site will return to full activity later today with the reemergence of “Real Deal on Headlines” to catch up on all the sports news that I have failed to cover in the past few days.

I also plan on introducing a new feature that I am hoping you guys will enjoy later this week, likely on Friday.

Until then, it is a big day for the RDOS intermediate family. As most of you know, we reside out of Oakland University and they will be playing for a chance to ‘PUNCH THEIR TICKET’ to ‘THE BIG DANCE’ against IUPUI (Indiana University of Pennsylvania Unified Intelligence?) tonight.

You can tune in to 88.3fm Auburn Hills if you are if you are north of M-59 from Chesterfield Township to Metamora, which includes Romeo, Lake Orion, Rochester, Utica, Auburn Hills and Pontiac. Or if you are by a computer, take the sure route and go to www.wxou.org where you can stream the coverage live. I will be hosting a pre-game show from 8 to 9pm, featuring an interview with Neal to open up at 8:05.

You can also go back to 88.3fm/wxou.org for your half-time and post-game coverage, where I will also be anchoring.

Neal will be on 1130am WDFN Detroit Sports Talk giving color commentary with Mario Impemba on the call. So listen to him on WDFN and listen to good ol’ Avocado on WXOU for your pre, half and post-game coverage of the Summit League tournament final and see if Oakland will be ‘DANCING’.

As far as Mikey P. goes, I believe he will be working and chowing down at Sign of the Beef Carver.

A message from the Real Deal on Sports

We want to sincerely thank everyone who has supported the show in the past year. This year has been huge for the future of the show and it was not too long ago that our future was in question. We never foreseen the following that we have accumulated in the past six months. Though it may be small, it is still a following and we couldn’t be more appreciative of that. It is hard doing a radio show without any support, it is hard to do anything without support. Your belief in us has motivated us to bring our best every Thursday and we look forward to every Thursday because of YOU. We have the confidence to continue to grow the show and take it to the next level.

Keep coming back in 2010. We have plans to expand the show on multiple facets. On this website, we plan on adding new pages, polls and features. As for the show, we will continue to grab unique guests, while bringing the Real Deal on Society every week and a new feature or two, to interject into various segments of the program. The interaction will be picked up as we will continue to take your phone calls, read your messages and do a couple remote broadcasts in the area, so you can have a beer with us. There are even bigger plans on the horizon. The show will only grow in this up coming year.

Special thanks to the robingehood.com message board (especially boba, sparty and o’looneys), our fans on Facebook, our few but loyal callers (Pete, CBD, LOH in North Warren, Caller Bobby, Dave from parts unknown), our guests (Sean Baligian, Mario Impemba, Jim Branstadder and Dave Pemberton notably)and our friends and family. We take our free time away from them and put it into the program for zero compensation. They allow this because they care and understand our passion.

Keep listening and reading in 2010!

Real Deal on Sports Weekly Poll: Best Mustache

Kyle mounted a bit of a comeback at the end, but it was too little too late congratulations Dave Wannstedt.


Will he be more fun than Rod Allen? Listen and find out!

Tune into Detroit Sports Talk 1130 am Wednesday night at 8 pm to hear Mario Impemba and our own Neal Ruhl on the call for Oakland vs. Wisconsin.

Yes, our own. Just because WDFN is paying Neal dosent mean they own his rights.  He is still property of “Real Deal Sports Entertainment Enterprises LLC.”


You can catch Neal Ruhl calling Oakland basketball for both WDFN and WXOU through out the season. Trust me it is worth listening to, not only for Neal but also because Oakland is likely an NCAA Tournament team this year and boast three pro basketball prospects, including Keith Benson who is expected to be a first round draft pick.

We’ll keep you updated through out the year of when you can hear Neal on the call for Oakland basketball.

Real Deal on Sports in the Oakland Post


Alexis Tomrell gave us a nice little write up in the Oakland Post.

“….Kyle Bauer and Neal Ruhl want to buy the Pontiac Silverdome. To them, this massive business venture is merely a hobby; a side project to their first love: hosting WXOU’s ‘Real Deal on Sports.’

The live show, which airs Thursdays from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., had its official start in April 2008.

The two hosts had been working together since 2007, appearing on each other’s sport shows and working on various projects, until they decided to combine forces and co-host ‘Real Deal on Sports.’………..”
