WEEI’s Courtney Cox Researches Aaron Rodgers’ Cleanse: ‘The Guy Is A Freak’

“I wish I had never looked it up. You could not pay me a million dollars to complete this cleanse.”

Aaron Rodgers returned to The Pat McAfee Show this week for his regular Tuesday appearance. As many hoped, he did not have an announcement regarding his future plans, whether it was to play for another NFL team or retire.

Yet Rodgers did reveal that he hadn’t stopped by since the Green Bay Packers season ended because he’d been on a 12-day cleanse. A Panchakarma cleanse, to be more specific. Rodgers knew that would prompt questions and encouraged viewers to do some research, only saying that “it originated in India and has been going on for thousands of years,” involved a “specific diet,” and is something he’s done in previous offseasons.

On WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show Wednesday morning, Courtney Cox included Rodgers’ cleanse in her report and went into some detail on what it entails. After doing some research, she said she wished she’d never looked it up and wouldn’t do the cleanse for a million dollars.

“It begins with a special massage, using specific oils that move toxins into the GI tract. You can probably guess where I’m going once I say ‘GI tract,'” Cox explained. “The cleanse then moves into the therapeutic vomiting stage to help cleanse the lungs and remove mucus from the body. Next up, take laxatives to rid the body of excess bile and improve the digestive system. Then comes the enemas, which remove feces, urine, bile, and other, uh, stuff from the body.

“Then you go into nasal therapeutics that help clean the sinuses. Now, I think about any type of sinus situation, I get that spray. In this, someone dips their pinky finger into butter and inserts the finger into the nose and gives a nasal massage… And the final step of this cleanse is the detoxification of blood, which is done through blood-letting. If you don’t know what blood-letting is, that is when one would get a leech and place it on their body to remove a small amount of blood from the veins.”

“The guy is a freak,” Cox concluded. “He is an absolute, certifiable freak.” Jermaine Wiggins then joked that this was the opposite of Tom Brady’s “TB12 Method.”

Cox, Wiggins, and Hill then discussed the more conventional practice of using colonics to clean out old debris and undigested food that may have accumulated in the body, and could actually be an enjoyable experience. Rodgers’ cleanse, however, does not sound pleasant.

Hey, to each their own, right? Rodgers spared the Pat McAfee Show audience of the gory, explicit details. And since it’s a 12-day endeavor, we could presume that McAfee and his crew aren’t going to try it for themselves any time soon. Fortunately, we have sports radio hosts and update anchors, along with numerous articles on sports websites, that can satisfy our curiosity.

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
