With the Jets not playing until Monday night against the Texans, Boomer & Craig opened up this football Friday edition of the Morning Extravaganza talking about the Yankees, as they await the winner of tonight’s Orioles-Rangers game to find out where they will be playing Sunday to kick off their quest for Championship #28 .
They also talked a little about the New York Football Giants while they prepare to welcome the Browns to MetLife Stadium Sunday afternoon.
