BREAKING: Erin Andrews in ball on chin action

During last nights Mets game, sideline-reporter hottie Erin Andrews took a ball to the chin. And not the way gorgeous blonde University of Florida grads usually take a ball to the chin.

From TMZ:
"Andrews — who serves as a sideline reporter for ESPN — was struck in the chin by a foul ball hit by New York Mets player Alex Cora during the 4th inning."

Reports are that she is just fine. Let's hope she recovers quickly, so she can resume the more normal (although illegal in Georgia) ball to chin activity.

UPDATE: Suzyn Waldman has never had a ball near her chin.
UPDATE #2: Kim Jones has.
UPDATE #3: There is a ball on Kim Jones' chin RIGHT NOW.

I wouldn't discount Suzyn. I have heard a rumor back when she was the correspondent.

I don't understand where Francesa is. Saratoga doesn't open for another 3 weeks.

Haha. Good stuff KBilly

KBilly- Just heard you on Dog's show. This last hour has been out of control! I won't necessarily miss Steve Torre's whining and complaining, but jesus, he's cleaning house!

bigjf said...

Probably the best post I've read on this blog.

KBilly said...

Dog was on a RAMPAGE today. Looking to fire his whole staff.

KBilly said...

Thanks bigjf. I thought it might get pulled for the double entandre theme of it.

Ryan T. said...

I thought one of the callers had a good idea. Bring in Len Berman.

It sounds like his numbers aren't looking that great, so he's being pressured into making some changes to his staff.

I can honestly say I don't often listen to many of the other hosts. Len Berman I would give a real shot to.

And KBilly, you have a thing for Gresh. He reminds me of an even more obnoxious Chris Carlin.

chris russo said that he has fired steve torre. i have a funny feeling that chris is yanking our chain ,and that steve will be back friday.i base this on having listened to mike and the mad dog from day 1 and my belief that i "know' chris ,if you will.

Ryan T. said...

KBilly, I was referring to Chris Carlin not Craig Carton. Although I do agree with your opinion on Carton and Boomer.

KBilly said...

I don't have a thing for Gresh. I just think, from what I've heard, his show is good. Better than Tony Page or Brandon Tierniy at least.

Ryan T. said...

No argument there...

Anyway, should be interesting who the firing squad hits next... The B Team perhaps?

KBilly said...

Carton belongs on the Stinks List and I've met Boomer (two weeks ago at the CF benefit at the USS Intrepid) and he's just a douche.

$55 a ticket for a charity benefit and he's got a cash bar with the only food pizza. Joke.

AwesomeSean said...

Maybe next time a foul ball could hit Rosenthal in the throat, rendering him incapable of brutalizing my eardrums.

Good stuff KB.

By the way, who is Gresh and how much were the brews at Boomer's function?

KBilly said...

AwesomeSean Drinks were 3 for $20. You had to buy tickets, I do admit, however, there were tons of hot girls there. But the bands and food kind of sucked. I did take home an extra pizza and brought it to my local bar. But I was expecting real food.

Chris went crazy yesterday and is on the morning show now and having a fit. He is firing people left and right.

AwesomeSean said...

KB...And your local is...?

I actually kinda like Boomer and Carton. I mean, they're better than Imus, M & M and John Gambling anyway.

Good Lord do the Mets suck. What a disaster.

Ryan T. said...

Mad dog radio is officially no longer about sports. Mad dog goes on a rant about all his hosts, now all the hosts are fighting back.

I missed the last 10 hours of activity. Who else got the boot??

Anonymous said...

I enjoy Boomer and Carton as well or maybe they just grew on me?

Carton will be the next Imus though. His sexist comments are getting a bit over the top. I don't mind them one bit but someone out there will make a stink about it. I can imagine Boomer being a Douche in real life.

AwesomeSean- get used to it! It does'nt look like Omar has any desire to bring anyone in and the "Core" won't be coming back anytime soon after the all star break. Bad job by the Mets!

KBilly said...

Not much going on in sports right now. I think Dog created this drama to get people to listen.

I kind of Saw Torre getting canned a mile away. Dog started bitching about him on Day 1.

KBilly said...

Carton is AWFUL (I think). He wants to be shocking like Howard Stern but just isn't funny enough to pull it off. Boomer has never been even remotely interesting, he's like a mouth full of crackers and no water in sight.

Anonymous said...

KBilly,

You're right about Carton. He is trying too hard to be Stern like and just does'nt have it in him. I watched the show that was televised on SNY and his actions and expressions are those of someone who is trying to be someone they are not.

Sports talk also is'nt the proper forum to try to become the next Howard.

I enjoy Boomer and Carton because I usually listen while in the car or working out. I guess they became an acquired taste like back in my Jack Daniels days.

Wow- would love to find an article about all this MadDog radio stuff going down yesterday. Where's Neil Best when you need him? Still on vacation like the big man I guess.

I hate Carton. I agree he seems like he's trying too hard. He is one of the types of people I can't stand the most - someone who thinks they are the coolest, smartest guy in the room but in all actuality is just a loser with way too high and impression of themselves

fantasymixx.com said...

I didn't listen to the whole Mad Dog stuff, but it seems like a PR stunt. Torre sucks. Chris asks him a question. Torre gives you nothing, "Uh. Yeah. Gotta suspend him." But Torre isn't getting 'fired'. He does his Sirius NFL update show. He's been doing that way before Mad Dog came.

KBilly said...

I didn't hear it, but I read about the Boomer and Carton interview with Jen Capriati and Carton was just stupid in his attempt to be Howard. Howard would have let her get her agenda out and then softened her up for those types of questions. You have to finesse someone before you ask them if they take it UTAH.
And Boomer doesn't do anything to stop it b/c he sticks to his role and lets Carton do whatever. I can't listen to them.

Ryan T. said...

This is the kind of buzz Neil Best usually ends his vacations early for. Did anyone here Dog's conversation with the Casey Stern guy hosting the morning show today? Stern is making it seem as if he told him off.

And you're right. The fact that there's not one story written about his rant, not from Raissman, Mushnick, Best, etc. says a lot for how much work satellite still needs to do to compete with traditional radio. When Mike and the Dog had a rant like that, it was in the news that afternoon. Remember the whole Enter Sandman controversy...

Brian said...

The mid day guys are totally ripping Russo about what he said yesterday.

They are going to replay what Russo said in a few minutes.

Ryan T. said...

They're going to break down the 1945 World Series, the SF Giants, and talk about the best movies ever "because that's what he wants". Hilarious.

Can't wait to hear the replays from yesterday's show since I unfortunately missed most of it.

And please join me in welcoming WFAN alum Rich Ackerman to Mad Dog Radio

tragically, it looks like nobody got the foul ball incident on video

The only Andrews can get is nut on the chin. The bitch is overrated.

It was certainly interesting for me to read this article. Thanks for it. I like such topics and everything connected to them. BTW, try to add some images :).
