The scene in Highland Park on the 4th of July was unimaginable. Six people are dead and 24 others were injured after a gunman opened fire on a crowd attending the Chicago suburb’s annual Independence Day parade.

On Tuesday morning, 670 The Score hosts Mully & Haugh described their feelings watching coverage of the attack on local television stations.

“It will be a difficult work day for a lot of people in Chicago, in the area, and a lot of people in Highland Park, and a lot of people everywhere because of yesterday,” David Haugh said in opening the show.

Mike Mulligan said he was doing show prep when he got a text to turn his television on. He was struck by a doctor named David Baum, who was at the parade and decided to help victims rather than flee.

Dr. Baum described what he called “battle wounds” on the victims hit by the bullets fired from an automatic weaponed fired by Robert Crimo.

“I think we’ve seen these things happen so often that there’s a kind of numbness that settles in, but the idea that it happened in a Chicago suburb changes that narrative,” Mully said. “The idea that it happens here changes that. Now, people are murdered, people are killed in this city at an astounding rate, at a horrific rate. Every weekend, you can look at a map and see where the shootings were and they’re all over this city, and the gun violence in this city is horrific. But yesterday was the Fourth go July. It was a time where families get out and they celebrate and people are in this suburb in Highland Park and people are having a parade to celebrate America and maybe one of the most American things that can ever happen happens, which is a mass shooting.”

He said Baum’s description reminded him of seeing victims of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 that had suddenly lost limbs.

Mully & Haugh‘s Score colleague Danny Parkins has been critical of people using Chicago’s gun violence to score political points in the past. Haugh remarked that even those people haven’t been so quick to dismiss what happened on Monday as a typical Chicago problem.

“Highland Park is your quintessential American suburb and people find it a little more relatable because it does hit closer to home for a lot of people,” he said. “At 10 o’clock in the morning, you don’t expect to be running for your life from a downtown parade.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
