We are live from D’Jais in Belmar, NJ for our Kickoff to Summer show! Boomer is back from Vegas and was not happy with his hotel room. Boomer wants to take all of us to the Super Bowl game this year. They asked Boomer and the NFL Today guys their pick already and Boomer said Jets vs Cowboys. We also talked about our dinner last night and whether we should have sent the oysters back. Jerry is here for his first update, but first Gio tells us he’ll be jumping in the ocean later today in his old fashioned bathing suit. The Mets beat the Cubs last night but lost the series. Buck SHOWALTER talked about Carlos CARRASCO (we think). The Yankees lost to the Orioles 3-1. Aaron Boone was ejected again last night for arguing balls and strikes. Boomer thinks the Yankees are making a bunch of excuses. The Celtics won game 5 and now are only down 3-2 in the series. In the final segment of the hour, C-Lo joins us. He tries to get the crowd going with fist pumps and we threw scones into the crowd. Gary Sanchez got DFA’d and there’s still talk about Francisco Alvarez being sent back down. Boomer said that’s not happening. Vogelbach has been terrible and Jose Reyes is even tweeting about him. Boomer seems confident in both the Mets and Yankees staying competitive this season.
Boomer is eating a liverwurst sandwich. Boomer also hates the new fair catch rule in the NFL which allows a fair catch anywhere and it places the ball at the 25 yard line. Boomer thinks they are going to add an 18th game at some point in the future. Jerry returns for another update and does a game show with a contestant. The Mets beat the Cubs and Pete Alonso hit another HR. Are there more Mets or Yankees fans here right now? There are more Yankees fans. There are more Rangers fans than Devils bans but not a huge amount. Buck SHOWALTER talked about Pete Alonso continuing to hit HRs. SHOWALTER is as boring as Aaron Boone now. The Yankees lost to the Orioles. Clarke Schmidt thought he did a decent job in the loss. The Celtics have life winning their second straight to get the series to 3-2. In the final segment of the hour, we did some Q&A.
Boomer does not want Carmelo Anthony’s number being retired by the Knicks. He said that’s reserved for people like Clyde Frazier and Willis Reed. MELO has no championships or MVPs as a Knick. Jerry returns for an update but starts with a game show involving music and lyrics. The Mets beat the Cubs 10-1 although they lost the series. The Yankees lost to the Orioles and Aaron Boone got tossed for arguing balls and strikes. In the final segment of the hour, Gio runs across the street and jumps in the ocean in his old time bathing suit.
Our boss Spike is very awkward when it comes to ending conversations. Spike joins us to defend himself. Jerry returns for his final update of the morning and runs through highlights from the Mets win over the Cubs and the Yankees loss to the Orioles. The Celtics won again last night but the Heat still lead the series 3-2. The Stars will not get swept as they beat the Vegas Knights last night. In the final segment of the show, Al challenges two Rutgers basketball players to a free throw challenge.
