Sports Radio Moment of the Day

A caller to Howard Eskin on Tuesday started off by thanking Howard for telling him about a certain breakfast place at the Jersey Shore that he had mentioned on the air, and kept talking about how much he enjoyed the "creepies." Weird, I thought, that such a place would be called "Creepy's," or have such a thing on the menu. After awhile, Eskin figured out that the caller was talking about crepes, and just didn't know the correct pronunciation. He tried "crepp-ess" first.

When a call starts like that, you just know his sports point is going to be stellar. However, Eskin cut the guy off after he mistakenly referred to Eagle-turned-WIP host Hugh Douglas as "Hugh Downs."

Give the guy credit, though- in the hour I listened yesterday, he was the only caller on either sports station to not bitch about Jimmy Rollins.
