The Booms was a battling a little sinus infection this morning, but not to worry, he made it into work to take his seat alongside his radio partner, so the two of them could go about their business.  The dynamic duo got things started by talking about comments made by Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, regarding the fans at the Garden chanting ‘we want Melo’ Wednesday night during the Knicks loss to the Clippers.  Craig thinks it’s laughable that D’Antoni would make such a statement, saying if he wants the chants to cease, he should see to it that his team does not take the floor ill-prepared, which certainly seemed to be the case against Blake Griffin and the Clips.  Now we all get to wait and see where Melo ends up when the dust settles, but the longer this drags out, the more convinced Craig becomes that it won’t be in the Big Apple.  Craigie was also very excited to learn that the shirt Boomer gave to him has thumb holes, unfortunately he dripped caramel on the shirt while enjoying a pre-Show treat, so that is where we begin…

There have been rumblings that the B&C Staff, led by Craig (minus Boomer) will be taking on the crew from MSG in a flag football game at some point  in the not too distant future.  Well both Al & Jerry have their eyes on the #1 receiver position and prior to Jerry’s first update, they both stated their cases.  Then we heard all about St. Johns big win over UCONN last night and all of the other notable happenings in the sports world…

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, a six-time NBA Champion, an unprecedented 19-time All-Star, but with all that said he is a man whose life extends well beyond the hardwood.  He joined B&C this morning to talk about his new sports documentary entitled, ‘On the Shoulders of Giants: The Story of the Greatest Basketball Team You Never Heard Of’.  The guys also talked to Kareem about his battle with cancer, his religious beliefs and relationship with Bruce Lee, his desire to play in New York and the state of the Kobe Bryant led Lakers today…

Craig is not a big fan of the flyovers prior to the start of big sporting events, so when he saw this article regarding the cost to have four F-18’s flyover the Cowboys Stadium, which had its roof closed by the way,  before the kickoff of Super Bowl 45, he just about went through the roof, literally…

For some reason Al told Craig all about an upsetting dream he had involving Dominique during an afternoon nap yesterday and how it ruined the rest of his day.  Craig of course talked about the dream on the air, which prompted Eddie to tell everyone about how Al has been leaving candy shaped hearts for Dominique all week long.  Sounds to me like someone has a crush…

Admirably, boomer made it through the entire Show today, despite battling a pretty mean sinus infection and when it came time for Jerry’s highly anticipated Moment of the Day, he selected a conversation B&C had, when the Booms told Craig which part of his body he likes to apply the Vicks Vapor Rub…

Clay Matthews joined B&C prior to Super Bowl 45 to talk about everything leading up to the big game.  Well after winning the damn thing, Clay wanted to come on and do a little gloating, which he is certainly entitled to do.  So Al booked the 24 year-old, Super Bowl winning linebacker to come on and talk about his Super Bowl winning experience…
