Even though their season come to an abrupt halt over the weekend, the Yankees somehow still manage to garner headlines.  Craig was disgusted when talking about the story where certain Yankee fans reportedly treated Cliff Lee’s wife less than admirably when she was a guest at Yankee Stadium. Now the question becomes if that hurts the Bomber’s chances of landing the left-hander when he hits free agency this off season.  As of now, Lee is just concentrating on Game 1 of the World Series, which starts tonight.  With the Yankees out of the way, the stage was clear to talk a little NBA basketball.  The season kicked-off last night with the highly anticipated debut of LeBron James with the Miami Heat.  James and the Heat lost to the Celtics and the dreams of an 82-0 season go by the wayside.  The Knicks and Nets both tip-off their seasons tonight, as Boomer & Craig eagerly wait to see what the Knickerbockers bring to the table this year.  Speaking of bringing something to the table, a friend, or former friend rather, has sold Jenn Sterger down the river regarding her role in the Brett Favre ‘sexting’ saga and Craig wants to talk with her…

Jerry had plenty to get to during his first update of the day and he got things started with the Mets, as their search for a new GM seems to be winding down.  He also touched on the NBA season getting underway last night and Craig offered his thoughts on how many games he sees the Knicks totaling this season.  All of that and of course the Jets and the Giants, who Craig sees on a collision course for Dallas…

The Nets tip-off their 2010-11 campaign in Jersey tonight and apparently there are still a few seats available if you’re willing to spend a little money and I mean a little money.  After getting tipped off by a caller, Craig checks out StubHub to find the cheapest ticket available would cost you a whopping $0.39.  No that is not a typo; the cheapest ticket for tonight’s Nets-Pistons game on StubHub was going for just THIRTY-NINE CENTS!!!!….

With Anthony Mason scheduled to join the program, the guys were talking about the man he has been hired to work with, Eddy Curry.  To say Curry has been a disappointment with the Knicks would be an understatement, Boomer went as far to call him the biggest waste of talent in NY sports history, which is hard to argue…

Just before 8:30 the guys were joined in-studio by a couple of sisters, Ali and Christina Christensen, whose story touched the heart of Boomer.  You see Ali and Christina both battle Cystic Fibrosis, the disease that Boomer’s Foundation has been set up to combat.  Boomer heard about them after they appeared on the show ‘America’s Got Talent’, which is hosted by Nick Cannon, so Al booked them to come and tell their story.  Prior to coming on the air, the girls got a nice surprise when Cannon surprised them with a visit and a photo-op…

Meadowlark Lemon played over 16,000 games for the Harlem Globetrotters and in Craig’s eyes is one of the five best basketball players of all-time, so you can imagine his excitement when Al told him that he booked Meadowlark to join him and Boomer in-studio today.  Craig did all he could to stop from hugging him, he eventually gave in to temptation and embraced the Pro-Basketball Hall of Famer…

Wednesdays on the Boomer & Carton Morning Extravaganza means it’s time for Do You Know More Sports Than… Today we focused on the Giants and we welcomed in Ali, who according to Al, is the hottest gal we’ve ever had in for the trivia showdown. And quite a showdown we had, as this one went to the bonus questions to decide a winner…

Anthony Mason was a Knicks fan favorite in the 90’s, playing with the team from 1991-96.  These days he has been hired by the Knicks to work with Eddy Curry, who has far from lived up to expectations since arriving in NY back in 2005.  Mason joined Boomer & Craig in-studio this morning to talk about the progress he is making with Curry, his NBA career and the outlook for the Knickerbockers this season…
