Pat McAfee broke some big news this week in the unconventional manner fans have come to expect from him. The host of The Pat McAfee Show had legendary NFL kicker Adam Vinatieri on his show and he announced his retirement during the interview. McAfee is convinced that it rubbed some people the wrong way.

“I assume there are some people that are pissed off about how that whole thing went down,” McAfee said on his show Friday. “There was people at the Colts, and they were like ‘Hey is this real?’ and I was like ‘What are you talking about?’ they are like ‘We wanna put out like quotes and stuff but is this Vinny [Vinatieri] f*ckin with people?'”

McAfee didn’t put it past Vinataeri to be pulling a fast one on all of us.

“Everybody wanted me to retire, I said I’ll retire, everyone celebrating me,” McAfee said as he impersonated the all-time leading points scorer in NFL history. “I’m f*ckin back; that would be such a Vinny move.” 

McAfee and Vinatieri were longtime teammates on the Colts and grew to be friends during their 127 games together. Vinatieri was with Indianapolis for McAfee’s entire career. The punter held the ball steady for plenty of Vinatieri’s 336 field goals in a Colts uniform. 

“Should we just make it real? Should we just say, ‘Hey, we’re done, we’re riding off into the sunset?'” Vinatieri told McAfee in the announcement video. ” … By Friday, if paperwork goes in, you heard it here first.”

The three-time Pro Bowler has kicked more field goals (599) and more extra points (874) than any other player ever. All while leading the league in accuracy three times (2002, 2004, 2014). Kickers rarely make it to Canton, but Vinatieri has as strong a case as any kicker to join Jan Stenerud and Morten Andersen in the Hall of Fame.

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
