From Boomer & Carton
Boomer put to rest any notion that he is searching for a luxury condo at 15 Union Square West, as was reported by Jennifer Gould Keil in the NY Post today. This was good news to Craig, because the report has the Booms scoping out a 1 bedroom unit, which would leave little room for him.
Boomer explained he was in the area recently, but to conduct an interview about the 1994 Stanley Cup winning New York Rangers, not to look for a place to hang his hat.
After figuring out why Boomer conducted an interview on the Rangers when he never played for the Blueshirts, Craig threw it to Jerry Recco for his first update of the morning.
Jerry began his update by playing some audio of Jets back-up quarterback Greg McElroy (courtesy of 97.3 the Zone) and he had some rather interesting things to say about some of his teammates and the locker room they all share.
McElroy’s remarks were so inflammatory that when Mike Tannenbaum joined Mike Francesa yesterday, the Jets GM was forced to respond.
As for Mark Sanchez, Craig spoke with him yesterday off the air and made plans to get together for dinner in the near future. Criag warned Boomer that he may not be welcome after his Chihuahua comparison and all.
Meanwhile, there is one team in New York that is still playing football, having qualified for the playoffs. I’m referring to the Giants of course and as the prepare to take on the Falcons at home this Sunday, Tom Coughlin is expecting quite a bit from his players and fans alike.
Some college football news, West Virginia beats down Clemson 70-33 in the Orange Bowl and Michigan’s kicker Brendan Gibbons thinks of brunette’s before big kicks.
All of that brings us to the Knicks, who got embarrassed by the Bobcats 118-110. We got to hear a brief, but telling soundbite courtesy of Mike D’Antoni on his clubs offensive and lack of defense. Boomer believes D’Antoni’s comments were intentional and meant to send a message to whoever suggested the Knicks bring in a defensive specialist, who arrived in the form of Mike Woodsen.
Plus, the Nets lose their 6th straight, last night to the Celtics by a score of 89-70, the Devils got blasted by the Bruins 6-1 and John Tortorella fined $30,000 by the NHL for his criticism of the officials following the Rangers 3-2 win over the Flyers in the Winter Classic…
