After winning his record fifth ‘Pulse of the People’ award last week, Craig was thrilled to show off his new hardware Monday morning in the Allstate Studio…
One for the thumb! Craigie has done it again, beating out finalists Boomer Esiason, N.J. Gov. Chris Christie, NFL analyst Phil Simms, and Mike Puma of the Post.
Carton took issue with the Baltimore outfielder’s tactics. “You didn’t play (with) the Orioles,” he said. “You took the Dodgers!”
“The notion that this team is all of a sudden, next year, going to be locked and loaded to win is becoming more comical day by day,” Carton said.
Everybody knows Craigie as the outspoken co-host of one of America’s favorite morning shows on WFAN. Most don’t know the side of him that really does fill the title of being a “national treasure.”
“It wouldn’t be fair if I played basketball with a child in a wheelchair because I got an unfair advantage,” Coburn said. “If your horse is good enough to run in the Belmont, where was he in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness?”
Leading up to Friday’s remote at the Borgata, Craig guaranteed Boomer that if given $10,000 he’d turn it into $25,000 at the casino.
Gov. Chris Christie — an old friend of the Boomer & Carton program — called up the morning show unexpectedly on Wednesday morning. They talked about the Rangers and their bid to win their first Stanley Cup in 20 years.
The great Jim Rome made the announcement Friday on behalf of the Pulse of the People Award committee, revealing this year’s finalists: Craigie, Boomer, Simms, Puma and Christie.
From time to time, Boomer and Craig like to compare the gifts they’ve given one another through the years, with the Booms usually coming out on top.
The governor — who chatted with Boomer & Carton for over an hour — covered a wide array of topics, from the state of the Jersey Shore to his love of the Mets and the Rangers.
“I think Montreal’s in a hole right now that they’re not gonna get out off. They may win one, but … goaltending is an issue. I just love the personality of this team. I like the leadership. I like the coaching. There’s a lot to like.”
Think you could make contact off legendary closer Mariano Rivera? WFAN co-host Craig Carton wasn’t about to pass up the chance.
“Sooner or later, when it starts getting hot and (into) summer, someone’s gonna get hot and take control of the division. The Braves, I think they’re overrated. So this division is very much up for grabs.”
The NYC All Star Sports Group has announced that the U12 and U13/14 championship games of the Borough Cup will be held at Yankee Stadium.
