Al Dukes booked CBS NFL analyst Dan Dierdorf to join the program shortly after 9 a.m., but just as he was ready to come on, Craig thought the “famous” Giants offensive lineman Batchagaloop Jones had entered the Allstate Studio.
As it turned-out, it wasn’t ol’ Batchagaloop after all. It was one of our salemen, Greg Hughes, who as luck would have it, filled out the jersey pretty nicely. Greg also informed Booms of his intentions to run for ‘Team Boomer’ in this year’s NYC Marathon.

Speaking of ‘sexy’ matchups, Saturday night Tim Tebow and the Broncos will head to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Pats. Like many, Dierdorf is enamored with what Tebow has been able to accomplish and admitted to rooting for the 24 year-old ‘football player’.
