After opening-up the Show by claiming that the majority of Giants fans would be ticked at the NFL’s decision to have them open-up their season against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium (9/05), coming back from break Craig read a few ‘Tweets’ he received from some of his adoring fans.

the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 4-3 behind CC Sabathia in their spring training game, and Jerry provided audio of another Yankees pitcher, as Joba Chamberlain described how he dislocated his ankle while playing on a trampoline with his son.
