‘Boomer & Gio’ Brainstorm John Sterling Home Run Calls For Isiah Kiner-Falefa

“Kiner-Falefa, he is one bad mother effer!”

It’s been an absolute frenzy since the lockout in Major League Baseball ended last Thursday (March 10). Many top free agents were still available when the league shut down in December, and now every team is scrambling to add star talent and get their rosters sorted before the 2022 season starts on April 7.

The New York Yankees haven’t signed a superstar slugger like Carlos Correa or Freddie Freeman as many fans still want. But the team dealt Gary Sanchez and Gio Urshela to the Minnesota Twins for former American League Most Valuable Player Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, and Ben Rortvedt in a blockbuster trade on Sunday.

On WFAN’s Boomer & Gio Monday morning, the talk was more about the pronunciation of “Kiner-Falefa” and “Rortvedt” and coming up with home run calls for Yankees radio play-by-play man John Sterling.

“Kiner-Falefa, he is one bad mother effer,” Jerry Recco suggested. “That would be tremendous.”

Co-host Gregg Giannotti agreed that would be a pretty great call before Boomer jumped in.

Phil Mushnick (New York Post columnist) would have a stroke,” he said.

The crew suggested they could do the call like the theme from the old TV show Shaft (“Shut your mouth”) before finishing the segment.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
