Yesterday, Howard Eskin was Extraordinarily Wrong About the Lockout

Howard Eskin, whose sources are generally well-placed and reliable (especially with hockey news and Flyers injury updates– for realsies), was grotesquely wrong with his lockout update last night:

Yikes.

At the time, he was quickly corrected by unofficial CB weatherman John Bolaris:

You're, but whatevs. Earlier in the day, J-Bo (or the Tweets he was reading) was actually spot on with his lockout update:

Score one for the weatherman in this ongoing dick-measuring contest between mostly out-of-work former Philly media stalwarts.

  1. Howard Eskin wrong about something? Gosh, that NEVER happens!

    did he send flowers

  3. Eskin’s working for Fixed 29 now. He comes after the reports where Dawn Stensland and the black dude talk about how communist bed bugs are infecting our kids with liberal ideas after they bite them in they sleep.

  4. John Bolaris = good predictor of things. He has to do it every day with the weather. Eskin = hot air.

  5. Howard is the Philly version of NY’s Mike Francesca……always right in his mind but usually wrong factually. Only difference is he’s fun…M. F. is not.

  6. eskin is a fucking joke. i love how charlie manual tore eskin apart. Eskin is the remnants of a Cleveland Steamer

  7. Eskin gets bitches killed when he sends them flowers

  8. Bolaris shits his pants

  9. Eskin is the worst dude, he constantly sites his ‘sources’ when really he probably just thinks of rumors while he’s dropping a log and calls them SOURCES. The worst

    Breaking news….my sources say Chip Kelly is headed to the browns

  11. Before the days on instant information on the Internet, Eskin was a solid source to break early news on Philly sports especially if it was Eagles/Phillies news.
    Those days are long gone, the success of his combative schtick on sports talk radio has since expired, and he has basically been reduced to a bit player/caricature of himself.

  12. Fox 29 news most accurately summed up by this movie quote:
    ‘You dirtbags have been in last place for 5 years!’
