The show is just an hour old and there are a few things that i am thrilled about:
1. Best Caller: Early in the show the very frustrated Met fan who called in a RAGE about Willie Randolph and over and over again said that Willie could not manage a lemonaid stand. Just beautiful rage.. and you have the feeling that this guy uses that line about 800 times a week.
2. Callers ripping on Chris for getting on the Mets fan. I mentioned this in a earlier posting about how it is amazing that Russo essentially hates New York teams and yet hosts the highest rated sports radio show in NY. In moments like today that undercurrent of feeling that fans have that Chris is anti New York and not one of us, rise to the surface.
3. First guest: Dave Trembley? Umm... what? Does anyone care on a day like today what the manager for the Baltimore Orioles has to say? How about booking Ian O Connor? How about Hernandez or Darling? I can just see the meeting prior to the show
Mike: Big show today, the Mets fans are going to be heated up and the Yankees fans are not going to be happy either. We got this whole Willie and the race thing.
Chris: You're right Mikey, big big show. I love it. This is exactly the show i love. I get a chance to stick it to the Met fan for five hours.. Same something funny Mike.
Mike: (says nothing)...... So Eddie who is our first guest?
Eddie: (with enthusiasm knowing he is going to get killed) Dave Trembley
Eddie: Dave Trembley, he's the Orioles manager.
Chris: OH MY GOD. That is a terrible job out of you. JUST TERRRRRIBLE. Come on now. We got Mets fans wanting to throw Willie Randolph off the Triboro Bridge and you got me Dave Trembley? That is just a terrible job. Can we get Malusis back? Can SOMEBODY BOOK THIS RADIO SHOW. MIKE COME ON, Dave Trembley???
Mike: It's a bad booking. No questioning that. Bad Booking.
Chris: BAD BOOKING? BAD BOOKING? It's a terrible BOOKING. JUST TERRIBLE. I got BRUCE FROM BAYSIDE READY TO COME TO SHEA AND FIRE WILLIE HIMSELF AND WE ARE TALKING ORIOLES BASEBALL AT 2:05???? THE METS ARE COLLAPSING, THE YANKEES ARE FALLING APART AND WE ARE TALKING NICK MARKAKIS? (Russo badly misprounces his name) OH THAT IS JUST AWFUL. JUST TERRIBLE.
