Bad Publicity is Bad
I saw in Barry Rozner's column this morning that Jerry Reinsdorf was scheduled to make a radio appearance with WSCR's ex-hot dog vendor this morning. The interview was scheduled between 8 AM and 8:30 AM. Good thing I read the column at 8:45 in the morning. Now that's great publicity there, Hot Dog Boy! No wonder you were getting your ass kicked by McNeilJurko&Harry. Not only is your act tired, but it's poorly promoted!
Note: Please ignore the fact that drive time for me is now ESPN's Mike & Mike and I'd never listen to WSCR's morning show, regardless of the guest.
Job Still Open
ESPN 1000's Tom Shaer reported this morning that Dave O'Brien will not be released from his ESPN contract and will be unable to accept the Cubs play-by-play job. This seems to explain the articles yesterday quoting Dave as saying he'd love the Cubs job. That was an attempt by Trib Corp. to pull the emotional strings at ESPN to help get Dave released.
Looks like that won't happen. Stay tuned for more details, and I'm sure Desipioandy (in his non-CubsTalk persona) will have inside scoopage.
