Boomer Esiason Says Craig Carton Is An Awful Houseguest
Boomer Esiason tells a story to Moose and Maggie about a time he caught Craig Carton going through drawers at his house.
There’s a slew of social faux pas when it comes to being someone’s house guest. Whether it’s not saying your P’s and Q’s, insulting the host’s cooking or ceramic figurine collection, or making a mess of some variety, guests are expected to observe certain decorums. Boomer Esiason joined Moose and Maggie and told a story about his former morning co-host Craig Carton going through his drawers when the former he had Carton over at his house.
“Never ask Craig Carton ever to come over to your house,” Boomer Esiason warned. “He’s a snooper like you won’t believe.”
Esiason said Carton would go through cabinets and bedrooms when he was a guest of Esiason’s, even catching him going through drawers, describing it as “a very awkward thing.” Carton took to the air on Carton & Roberts to defend himself. He denied being as invasive as Esiason claimed, though did say in the early years of the show, he stayed overnight at the former NFL quarterback’s home and went around looking for Esiason’s AFC Championship ring and NFL MVP trophy.
Carton said he went looking through Esiason’s office at night, including in the drawers in his desk to get a peak at them. The search was foiled when Boomer Esiason woke up and went downstairs, fearing an intruder.
“He’s holding a Louisville Slugger in his hands, and he goes, ‘Carton?'” he said. “I thought it might be inside the drawer.”
While the ring and trophy weren’t found in the drawer, Carton did take aim at attempting to prank someone in the family by filling a bathroom cabinet with toy jacks. He bought a “bulk amount” of them, and proceeded to try to rig the cabinet, only to be caught by one of his former co-host’s two kids who asked what he was doing.
“Nothing; I’ll just take my jacks home.”
670 The Score Launching What About Chicago Radiothon
Audacy Chicago announced a 24-hour radiothon entitled What About Chicago that aims to raise awareness for local social causes.
Audacy Chicago announced the inaugural What About Chicago Radiothon benefiting Athletes for Justice and Austin Harvest. The radiothon will last from 9 a.m. CT June 23 to 9 a.m. CT June 24, led by 670 The Score afternoon co-host Danny Parkins, who said one aim of the event is to reclaim the phrase “What About Chicago” which has been politically weaponized in recent years.
“I hate when people who don’t care about our city ask ‘What about Chicago?’ in bad faith,” said Parkins. “The name ‘What About Chicago’ is a defiant response and this radiothon will hopefully highlight what Chicago is really about – a Chicago radio station partnering with a Chicago charity with a mission to help improve the lives of Chicago kids in a Chicago neighborhood.”
The event is running in partnership with former Chicago Bear and Wuerffel Trophy winner Sam Acho. Parkins will be a co-host on all Score shows throughout the day in addition to hosting in his usual spot. He will be joined by representatives from each organization and special guests, per a release.
Athletes for Justice mobilizes professional, collegiate, and everyday athletes as agents for systemic change by wielding their collective voice and galvanizing resources to amplify local efforts in the ongoing fight for justice.
Austin Harvest is a youth-led open air food mart that provides fresh produce to an area lacking access that is staffed by children from the community. It started as a 3-day-a-week pop-up mart after school program but because of its success, they want to expand and build a permanent structure.
