There was a brief tear in the space-time continuum this morning. Tony Bruno was an in-person guest on the WIP Morning Show, which broadcast live from the airport (I think just so they could harass poser Cowboys fans from Philadelphia heading to the little d for the game tomorrow).
As you know if you listened to our lengthy discussion with Tony a few weeks back, he left WIP in the 90’s to work for ESPN and their original morning show. There’s a perceived beef between the respective hosts (or former hosts) of the two local radio stations (some may call it RADIO WARS*), and I just assume everyone hates everyone in radio, but the truth is, Angelo, Al and Tony have remained on good terms. And quite honestly, they didn’t miss a beat during their reunion this morning. There remains a great chemistry there.
Phil Martelli called in to give his Eagles prediction while Tony was on. If you ever wonder why mediocre St. Joe’s basketball is so beloved around here, I present to you The Brooklyn Dichotomy: Martelli playing to the early-morning crowd by talking about the Eagles just 12 hours after his Hawks needed overtime to beat LIU Brooklyn, at home. Meanwhile, Jay Wright and Villanova are 5-0, ranked 12th in the country, and just knocked off two other top 25 teams en route to winning the Libery Classic at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn. But yeah, let’s talk more about how cool it is that the Hawk never stops flapping.
*I see you, WIP, trying to claim that as your own:
