Speaking to WFAN’s Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Wednesday, Mariano Rivera offered a ton of advice to Robertson, touched on Derek Jeter’s upcoming retirement tour and the Yankees’ exhibition games in Panama.
“I like to know where I’m gonna be tomorrow, so when the opportunity came for me to stay here for a little while I definitely was excited about it.”
Today’s highly anticipated ‘Moment of the Day’ featured Evan Roberts — one half of WFAN’s midday show — sharing his desire to see Russian president Vladimir Putin on TV Saturday morning.
At some point over the weekend, WFAN’s Evan Roberts made vocal his great desire for a glimpse of Vladimir Putin during the Olympic hockey coverage from Sochi.
After Evan Roberts spent some time on the midday show Monday talking about U.S. Presidents, Boomer and Craig touched on the subject a bit.
Plus, Boomer suggests some hot yoga for Craig, Evan Roberts gets a wake-up call (and earns Jerry $100), Antonio Cromartie advocates for the NFL to stop testing for marijuana and some sad news…
An independent arbitrator ruled Saturday to ban A-Rod for a full season, including the playoffs. “The number of games sadly comes as no surprise, as the deck has been stacked against me from day one,” Rodriguez said in a statement.
WFAN host Mike Francesa says he expects Alex Rodriguez and his legal team to continue fighting the 162-game and postseason suspension.
Eli Manning and Antrel Rolle won’t make excuses for the Giants failing to make the playoffs this season. But they do like the fact that the team is playing hard with nothing to play for.
“I’ve gotta see more from Matt Harvey. I think he even thinks of himself as, like, the king of the city here right now. He’s gotta do a lot more before I can look at him that way.”
As far as Antrel Rolle is concerned, the Giants’ disappointing 2013 season has not been about messages not getting through, locker room strife or divisiveness, the things the media love to point to first.
“We don’t want to see a cold Super Bowl,” the four-time Super Bowl champion told the radio duo. “We don’t want to see what we saw in Philadelphia (this past weekend). What good can come from that?”
“To be honest with you, I don’t care,” the captain told WFAN radio. “Whoever wins, wins. Whoever wins, they deserve to win. To me, to be honest with you, I don’t care who is the better of the two.”
The last time the Jets won consecutive games was just a shade over a year ago. If they want to keep their playoff hopes alive they will almost certainly have to do it again, for starters.
Rex Ryan’s job security has been on a roller-coaster ride. Well, that’s the assumption. Only Woody Johnson knows the truth. However, conventional wisdom suggests Ryan’s job will be on the line over the final four games of the regular season.
