A confused caller stole the spotlight on Carton & Roberts yesterday. Craig Carton and Evan Roberts were cruising through their normal routine when a caller mistakenly thought they were on The Michael Kay Show.

I always feel Peter [Rosenberg] and Don [La Greca] gang up on Michael [Kay],” The caller, Matthew, said after Carton realized he was calling the wrong number. 

The host could’ve just hung up on the guy and carried on with the regular show, but there’s a reason Carton & Roberts are atop the ratings. Carton decided to string him along and see just how far he could carry Matthew.

“As you know, you’re listening to Michael, Don, and Peter here,” Carton continued. “We appreciate you listening. Now you may have heard the story that we are in a real dog fight ratings-wise with the other station on a show called Carton & Roberts… and they are killing us right now. Like we’re not even in the game.”

Carton then wanted to find out why Matthew wasn’t listening to Carton & Roberts and followed up with how “He” and the rest of the MKS crew can improve their show.

“Be kind to one another,” Matthew responded. “Listen to what he says, and I think when somebody’s talking, somebody else shouldn’t be watching the cellphone… You can be on it, but don’t show the audience that.”

Carton (AKA Michael Kay) had a quick retort for Matthew on Long Island.

“Well listen, I tell Peter and Don all the time that if they were more entertaining and interesting, I’d be on my cellphone less. But they’re not.”

Things then took an even more hilarious turn as Carton and Matthew dove into some of their favorite Yankees. Check out the full clip above, and make sure to tune into Carton & Roberts weekdays from 2-7 p.m. ET on WFAN and The Michael Kay Show from 2-6:30 p.m. ET on ESPN 98.7.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

Sports Gambling Podcast

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
