Boomer & Gio Podcast (WHOLE SHOW)
Jerry is in for Boomer today so it’s Gio & Jerry. The Nets have fired Jacque Vaughn so you can add him to the list of NY sports coaches that have been let go recently. We talked about the worst NY hires and came up with Adam Gase and Mickey Callaway. Gio put David Fizdale on that list as well. We could get two new football coaches and a new Yankees manager if things don’t go well this upcoming season. C-Lo is here for his first update but first we talked about him co-hosting with BT yesterday, filling in for Sal. Gio said that Kevin Clancy of Barstool will be filling in for Boomer on Thursday morning. Juan Soto met the media and said it’s going to be ‘electric’. Luke Voit talked about the potential of being a DH with the Mets. Anthony Rendon said baseball is a job but it’s not his highest priority. Antonio Pierce thinks he has the formula to beat the Chiefs, the ‘Patrick Mahomes Rules’. Rick Pitino said he wasn’t ripping anybody when he criticized his team on Sunday. In the final segment of the hour, Jason Kelce was a guest on Shaq’s podcast. He told Kelce to retire and spend time with his wife and kids because he screwed up in the past. It made both Gio and Jerry sad to hear Shaq sounding so lonely. Jerry said you better have a plan when you retire or you are going to struggle. Ryan Clark put out a hype video for himself saying his deal with ESPN is over and ‘somebody gotta pay the piper’.
We continued talking about Ryan Clark, whose contract is up at ESPN, and he put out a hype video for his broadcasting career. He wants to work less in his next job, but get paid more. We also wondered what recently retired NFL players would want to do a 4-hour radio show, 5 days a week like Boomer. These guys have all made way too much money in their careers. C-Lo is here for an update, but first Gio has a story about a black hole that is scaring him. Juan Soto talked about his expectations for this ‘electric’ Yankees season. A caller said he’s ‘a moon chaser’, and is going to Mexico to see some sort of moon eclipse. He also is a micro-doser and a gynecologist. There was a brawl in the Texas A&M-Comm vs Incarnate Word basketball game. Also, Tyrese Haliburton has 2 completely different voices within the same conversation. In the final segment of the hour, a caller said his girlfriend’s grandmother died and his girlfriend thought the bird was a sign from heaven. He used Jerry’s line, ‘it’s a bird you moron’ and is now in the doghouse so to speak.
Anthony Rendon met the media yesterday and he said that baseball isn’t really a top priority to him these days now that he has a family. Does he deserve credit for his honesty? It’s definitely turning the fans off since he is making a ton of money and he only plays like 50 games a year. Gio thinks a lot of athletes feel like Rendon. It’s just a job and a paycheck to them. Golf analyst Amanda Balionis wasn’t wearing her wedding ring at the Genesis Invitational and a lot of online speculation began. C-Lo returns for an update and starts with Juan Soto commenting on whether the Yankees have enough to win the World Series. Why is Gio so fascinated with Peter Schwartz? Chris McMonigle had a slip of the tongue and mentioned the Yankees when talking about hockey. Tiki Barber said Shaun Morash is ‘not a real Giant fan’. We also talked about how terrible Evan Roberts looks. In the final segment of the hour, Beyonce has a new song and it’s country. We also talked more about Pete Alonso’s upcoming free agency.
We played a clip from Evan and Tiki where they were talking about the Matt Martin fight in the Rangers game. Gio talked about fearing guys coming to the house to date his daughter. We took calls from guys who have daughters and they talked to us about how to stay close to them as they get older. C-Lo returns for his final update of the day but first we play John Mayer’s ‘Daughters’. C-Lo has audio from Juan Soto and Anthony Rizzo. Aaron Boone talked about Soto reminding him of Barry Bonds. He also commented on Gleyber Torres’ mustache. Travis Kelce spent $13K on Taylor Swift for Valentine’s Day. The Moment of The Day involves a moon chasing, micro-dosing gynecologist. In the final segment of the show, Gio has been catching up on Love Is Blind. One of the women claimed she looked like Meghan Fox. She doesn’t, so the internet went all in on her. Evan attacked ‘fat Rangers fans’.
