Mike Florio, Dan Patrick Show’s Paul Pabst Revisit Pie-In-Face Tom Brady Bet

Now at stake is Mike Florio taking a lemon meringue pie to the face if Tom Brady is not with the San Francisco 49ers after Week 1.

Quarterback Tom Brady shocked and surprised some, but also affirmed what others predicted would happen by announcing over the weekend he will return for his 23rd NFL season in 2022. Brady initially announced after the 2021 season concluded that he would be calling it a career.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio was among those who didn’t believe Brady would stay retired. Earlier this month while appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, Florio made a bet with show producer Paul “Paulie” Pabst that Brady would not only come back in 2022, but that Brady would suit up for the San Francisco 49ers.

What was at stake in the bet? The loser gets a pie in the face.

Florio was back with Patrick on Tuesday, and the bet eventually came up. Patrick asked Florio if he lost the bet. (That part of the conversation begins at the 10:32 mark of the video below.)

“I thought (Paulie) was talking to his lawyers about this,” Florio joked. “I’ve been waiting to get the facts from the law offices of whoever he hired to come to a conclusion here. Because I think he was adamant on the fact that Brady was not coming back.”

The clip from Florio’s March 1 appearance on the show was played, and the bet was clear on Brady being a 49er for Week 1. The question then became what kind of pie would be used. Patrick specified that it had to be an actual pie and not just whipped cream in a pie pan. They eventually landed on lemon meringue as the pie flavor.

Seton O’Connor then chimed in saying the bet shouldn’t be settled until after Week 1. Patrick asked if Seton was in Florio’s corner on the bet.

“I’m Team Fairness,” Seton said. Florio agreed wholeheartedly.

“Seton’s right! Week 1 is the trigger here,” Florio said.

Paulie offered Florio an out which wasn’t really an out. Florio was offered to get pied during the month of March or when Week 1 has concluded in September. But if he waited until then, he’d have to take a lemon meringue pie. (Seton warned that the lemon would burn his face and leave a mark, however.)

“I’ll let it ride, and I’ll take the sunburn from the lemon meringue,” Florio said.

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
