It’s a Football Friday on the Boomer & Carton Morning Show, and the burning question on everyone’s mind is whether or not the Jets will bounce back after the beating they took in Foxboro Monday Night.  Next up for Gang Green is their old AFC East rivals, the Miami Dolphins.  Rex has changed things up a bit and Craig thinks it’s a sign of panic.  Speaking of panicking, the Yankees appear to be pushing the panic button themselves.  After leaving the winter meetings that saw the Red Sox acquire Adrian Gonzalez in a trade with the Padres and sign Carl Crawford to a 7-year, $142 million deal to patrol left field, the Yankees are reportedly ready to up their offer to Cliff Lee by adding a 7th year.  Now Yankees fans find themselves in the unfamiliar position of waiting, waiting, waiting for Cliff Lee to make up his mind.  Craig compared it to waiting for a call from a girl, or in Boomer’s case, waiting for a phone call on Draft Day back in 1984, which for the record didn’t come until the 2nd round (39th pick overall)…

Craig has taken quite a liking to a hot ‘apple cider’ drink from Starbucks; a drink that our ‘Breakfast Coordinator’ Rocco sees that he has every morning.  Well while spending a day off in Washington, DC with Boomer, Craigie was forced to get his own hot ‘apple-cider’ drink and because of that he made the startling revelation that the drink is nothing more that apple juice heated up in a microwave. Very disappointing.  To get further clarification, Al ‘Hughes’ Dukes made a call to Starbucks and during Jerry’s update, Carol, the manager of the store called in and admitted that Craig’s suspicions were in fact true…

Archie Griffin is the only man to ever win two Heisman Trophies (1974 & 1975) and with the Downtown Athletic Club (DAC) getting set to announce their 75th winner Saturday night, Al booked Griffin to come on and talk with Boomer & Craig about the significance of the award, Reggie Bush getting striped of his Heisman, and whether or not Cam Newton has any competition for this year’s honor.  As an added bonus Archie brought along the trophy, which prompted Craig to show off his ‘Pulse of the People’ trophies, he has ‘won’ three of them by the way…

In this segment Boomer talks about ‘getting the stink’ off, which made his radio partner’s mind wander.  Then Craigie was called out for trying to pass a plate of baked cookies as his own…

E.J. Henderson is a linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings, who will take on the Giants this Sunday in Minneapolis, and like Boomer he is a Maryland Terp, having attended Maryland from 1998-2001.  So with that in mind Al booked him to come on and talk some football with Boomer & Craigie…

While talking about ‘Lombardi: A New American Play’ the guys got to discussing some other Broadway shows, including one of Craig’s favorites, ‘Les Miserables’.  The mere mention of that got Craig wanting to hear ‘On My Own’, which Al & Eddie had a tough time producing, but they eventually got it right and all was well…

After we learned that Craig didn’t in fact make the cookies he brought in today, this next claim should be taken with a grain of salt.  I’m talking about Jerry’s highly anticipated Moment of the Day, during which Craig claims he runs his household…
