I don't understand that myself. I've only heard him once and he sounded like what you described, just kept ranting and raving. I have heard that most of his shtick is yelling at the callers.
Think of him as NY's Glenn Ordway or Eddie Andelman, a first generation radio sports talk guy. He's milking the limelight of his career because he's been around for decades and there's always some people who will listen to him out of sheer habit, whether he's any good or not.
Eddie Andleman in his 1970s-80s Sports Huddle prime was sharp, funny, and area codes ahead of the Sewer York trash.
I grew up in the 70s in the middle of CT with no real access to Boston media, despite my fandom of the Sox and the Pats.
The first radio sports talk I heard was Arnold Dean on WTIC from Hartford in the 70s. It was a totally different era. People thought being on the radio was a privilege and everyone acted like adults, no yelling and screaming just to make a point. Dean had to straddle the line, since CT of the 70s was (and still is) the boarderline between NY and Boston fandoms, and he pulled it off quite well.
Unfortunately, Dean passed in 2012, here's a great article on him: Arnold Dean's death takes another state sports legend from us
And that is 100% accurate.
Sorry I missed out on Andleman in his prime, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it.
I did listen to WFAN right from the start, but wasn't a big fan of Mike & Mad Dog, I was more of a fan of late night Steve Somers schmoozing.
Need to fall asleep quickly?
Apologies but it is a bye week...
Actually I did use it for that purpose! Still to this day I need to have some sort of calming human voice to go to sleep by and to get back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night. This is because my mom put a clock radio next to my bed when I was young (because this is how she gets to sleep), and I got accustomed to it. Unfortunately these days talk radio (both US and international) can't avoid the temptation for childish screaming and rampant sensationalism which is of course not conducive to sleep. These days I listen to various lectures or documentaries on youtube premium (ad-free) which are only of modest interest to me, and I'm asleep in a few minutes.
If someone could photoshop Gase, Adams, Darnold, Woody
into the other side of that dumpster it would be a near perfect gif ......
@Tunescribe be sure to tune into the Jets game this week!
Exclusive: It's a Bird, It's a Plane...It's a 'Fire Adam Gase' Banner Over Manhattan
Kristian DyerNov 8, 2019
First it was ‘Fire John Idzik.’ Several years later, the target of a group of New York Jets fans is Adam Gase.
SportsIllustrated.com has learned that dozens of Jets fans have banded together to fundraise and protest the current Jets regime which includes Gase, the team’s unpopular head coach. The result of the fundraising will be a plane flying over New York City’s West Side on Friday afternoon with a banner that reads ‘Fire Adam Gase!’
Also included will be the group’s social media handle as a way to help continue mobilizing the movement. The Jets are 1-7, a disappointing record under Gase, in his first year with the team. They’ve struggled with injuries and several underwhelming seasons from stars signed this previous offseason by former general manager Mike Maccagnan, who was fired after the NFL Draft.
It has been an unusual year for the Jets to say the least. And now it is start to turn ugly not just on the field but in the stands.
EDIT - Looks like you had to be in NYC today!
I doubt the New York Giants vs. New Jersey Jete game will be on TV locally this week because both teams suck; will probably have to follow it on the Red Zone channel.
It's been another BANNER YEAR for the Jete!
I hope they don't fire Gase. It's been enjoyable to watch.
Yes. Wrecks was buffoonish, Blowes was deadpan boring. But Googly Gaze appears to have perfected the art of turning morose incompetence into high comedy. The Jete should be a TV sitcom -- the goofy clueless brother-owners, the high-priced kid quarterback who keeps messing up, the google-eyed coach nobody takes seriously whose father-in-law works for the evil defensive coordinator who wants to run the team, the running back robbed blind by prostitutes, the dopey defensive tackle who sneezes and blesses himself, the legendary but drunk ex-quarterback who keeps dropping by, the angry self-flagellating fan base ... The show practically writes itself. Either that, or the Jete should permanently be on Hard Knocks.
Some possible knockoff theme ideas:
Jete Park ( South Park) - " Oh my God. They fired Kenny. Those Bastards"
Jeteman ( Batman ) - " Holy woody prick Johnsons Jeteman, we've been foiled again "
" Baaam. Pooowww. Shluuuuck. Pfffffflumble.... Booof"
Goober Gaze (Gomer Pyle) -
" Darnit!!! Why did you throw it straight to another defender?!?!"
" Well geez coach. Y'all told me to get rid of it whenever I got scared and that's just what I did"
Jeers (Cheers theme song - shortened version)
Losing your way in the NFL
Takes everything you got
Throwing a pick to all your enemies
Sure does help a lot
Wouldn't you like to lose today?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows you're lame
And they're sure you'll lose the game
You want to be where you can see
The Jete fans are all the same
They want to see them find ways to lose the game
You want to go where people know
The Jete fans are all the same
They want to see them lose another football game
Wow. Well done.
Big news! Jamal "Punk" Adams is back on speaking terms with his head coach and the team's GM!
Link: Jamal Adams finally on speaking terms with Joe Douglas, Adam Gase
Says Adams, “Yeah, I would love to be here. I want to bring success to this organization and I want to bring a Super Bowl to this team. That’s why I was placed here in New York ... "
Is this what he's talking about? Must be a cafeteria problem.
Pretty sure the bowl he was referencing had nothing to with anything involving a salad.
