I overslept this morning and somehow managed to miss the amazing pairing on WFAN of CSTB reader Chris Carlin with CSTB punching bag John Franco. If any of you managed to tune in and have something to share about the latter’s performance, by all means, fire away. But I’ll be bitterly disappointed if the Captain had nothing to say about the NBA’s point shaving scandal.

Newsday’s Neil Best is far more responsible in closely monitoring Carlin’s co-hosting duties in the old Imus slot, and took note of the following factoid from last Thursday :

Ian Eagle and co-host Chris Carlin revealed in the 7 o’clock hour that Eagle never has eaten a salad, never has sipped a cup of coffee and only once – on a fifth-grade trip to Washington, D.C. – has he consumed a condiment.
