There were a couple of Giants featured in Friday's highly anticipated 'Moment of the Day', as Craig had some fun at the expense of rookie cornerback Eli Apple and his veteran teammate Jason Pierre-Paul.
I guess technically he never lost it, or perhaps he never had it in the first place, but either with or without his groove Jerry Recco got it done Friday morning with the latest edition to his wildly popular update series.
A Mets Setback, Dreaming Of Durant And A 'Superhero' Among Us
Friday morning, after Boomer & Craig got through discussing the plight of the Mets - who had Matt Harvey on the hill last night in Atalanta but fell to the lowly Braves, 4-3 - it was on to the hardwood for the Dynamic Radio Duo. The NBA Draft came and went without the Knicks making a single selection, but not to worry because apparently Phil Jackson and Co. are hoping the addition of Derrick Rose will be enough to lure Kevin Durant to the Big Apple. Durant may also consider relocating when he realizes the Knicks have a 'Superhero' on their roster, or at least that is what Craigie would like you to believe. After getting wind of the news that Carmelo Anthony will be playing for Team USA in the Rio Olympics - despite the very real Zika Virus scare - Craig took to praising his guy Melo. You know the drill folks, it's a Friday, now start actin' like it.

Antoine Walker Talks Finances, Basketball And Then Some
Antoine Walker had himself an admirable career on the hardwood, which in included a National Championship with Kentucky in 1996 and a NBA title with the Heat in 2006, but the three-time All-Star will ultimately be remembered for squandering a small fortune, somewhere in the neighborhood of $108 million. Walker joined Boomer & Craig Thursday morning in the Allstate Studio to talk about his well-publicized financial hardship, his career, the Knicks acquisition of Derrick Rose and much more.
Mets Win Despite More Injures, Yanks Come All The Way Back And Mike's Mishap

Mets Are Panicking, While The Yanks Fancy Themselves Just Fine
After a relatively quite night in the world of sports, one might wonder what the Dynamic Radio Duo that is Boomer Esiason & Craig Carton, might talk about this Tuesday morning??? Well that inquiry was quickly put to rest as the guys set things off with the Mets, who after a sub-par start to their season, are looking to shake things up these days. That is of course open for interpretation, some suspect the Amazins' could be interested in bringing in Cuban sensation Yulieski Gourriel, a shortstop Yoenis Cespedes said is as good as he has ever seen. There is also rumors that Jose Reyes - and all of his baggage - could be on the radar.

With Thursday night's big softball game in Sleepy Hollow, NY mere hours away, Boomer & Craig were thrilled to welcome the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Rob Manfred to the program. In addition to his duties as Commissioner, Mr. Manfred also handles the roster moves for his office softball team and if last year was any indication, Boomer, Craig and the gang may be in some trouble. While they had him on the horn, the guys asked Manfred about the idea of pitchers taking part in a Home Run Derby in some capacity or another, Ichiro Suzuki's controversial hit total and much more.
Boomer & Craig welcomed the rookie GM of the Brooklyn Nets, Sean Marks, into the Allstate Studio Thursday morning and the three engaged in a nice little chat, which was centered around the sport of NBA basketball. In his previous life, Marks was an actually NBA player, playing for a handful of teams and winning a Championship with the Spurs back in 2005. Armed with that knowledge, before letting him go, Boomer was sure to recruit the big man - he stand at 6'10" tall - to be part of the B&C basketball team. And there you have it.
The Jets negotiations with Ryan Fitzpatrick have been well-documented for sure. Well it appears we're going to get even more familiar with GM Mike Maccagnan's negotiating skills, as defensive-end extraordinaire is not happy in the contract department.
Thursday's action-packed Morning Show Open was very well-rounded, as the Dynamic Radio Duo that is Boomer & Carton really seemed to enjoy themselves while discussing what was on their minds.

As for Craig's Yanks, their woes continued Wednesday afternoon in Colorado and now find themselves all alone in last place of the AL East. In other baseball news, Marlins' outfielder Ichiro Suzuki belted his 4, 257th career hit, 'career' being the operative word, as the future Hall of Famer played the first nine years of his career in Japan, during which time he collected 1,278 of those hits. So calling him 'the hit king' - which some have done - is not something Boomer & Craig are about to do, reserving that moniker for Pete Rose.

Honestly, on the surface there was very little to talk about on the sports front, outside of the Cavs topping the Warriors in Game 5 of their NBA Finals clash. So even with the Yankees and Mets both having the night off, the show kinda carried itself with such topics as, bruised testicles, hit music from the 80's and much more.
The subject was, songs that reached #1 during the decade of the 80's and the competitors were New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and our very own Al 'Hughes' Dukes. This of course, was not the first time these two rivals locked horns.

Gov. sat in for the Booms last Thursday and things went very well, so today figured to be no different. Craig and Mr. Christie got things rolling with the low-hanging fruit that was the NBA Finals, after the Cavs inched closer to the Warriors with an ultra-impressive Game 5 win. From there it was on to the Mets, who will welcome back Terry Collins tonight when they host the Pirates and are apparently lookin' to be proactive with regard to their offensive inefficiency.

The plans was to see who knew more about 80's music, N.J. Governor Chris Christie or our very own Al Dukes - who cleaned-up the last time he was put to the test. From there, Craig started asking the questions and we can only hope, learned a little something about how the decades work in the process.
