Time marches forward. What is common knowledge to one generation is unknown by another. That is the point Rob Parker was trying to make on Thursday’s edition of The Odd Couple on FOX Sports Radio, but his partner Chris Broussard wasn’t having it.

During a discussion of how the stature of the NCAA Tournament had fallen in the eyes of fans, Parker gave his bona fides to back up his criticism. He said that when he covered St. John’s, Mark Jackson was still on the team.

Rob Parker described Jackson as “the announcer from ESPN and ABC.” That wasn’t proper deference according to Chris Broussard.

“Wow, that’s how you describe him? The announcer?” Broussard objected. “Not the great player? I mean, he wasn’t a Hall of Famer, but my goodness!”

Jackson was selected 18th overall by the New York Knicks in the 1987 NBA Draft. He was named rookie of the year in his first seaon. He would go on to play for seven teams during his 13 seasons in the league.

Parker didn’t deny Jackson’s skill or accomplishments. He simply was trying to speak to the audience that was listening to The Odd Couple at that moment.

“The millennials don’t know him as that. They know him as the announcer.”

“I apologize, Mark, for Rob disrespecting your great play,” Broussard joked.

Parker came back with a fact bound to make some in the audience feel old. The best-known analyst in the NBA is Charles Barkley, widely considered one of the best to ever play in the league. There are plenty of people in their 20s and 30s that wouldn’t know that if it weren’t for Barkley’s TNT colleagues ribbing him over his lack of championship success.

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.”

Some analysis made by Sunday Night Football commentator Cris Collinsworth caught the attention of 94 WIP morning host Angelo Cataldi that sent him over the edge Monday morning.

“Joe Banner ripped Cris Collinsworth last night over something he said about Andy Reid in the game last night,” Rhea Hughes said as she detailed Banner’s criticism. “He goes ‘I worked for Andy Reid for 14 years. Cris Collinsworth just said if there’s anything Andy Reid loves to do it’s pound the football.”

“Oh that’s a total lie! Cris Collinsworth is a bozo!”, Cataldi shouted.

Reid faced heavy criticism at the end of his tenure as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for his reluctance to run the football. The team routinely finished in the bottom half of the league in rushing yards per game during Reid’s 14 seasons at the helm of the franchise.

“He goes ‘I think Cris is usually smart in and his analysis is good but…” Hughes said before Cataldi interrupted by shouting “No he’s not! No he’s not!”, he reiterated. “He’s not smart!”

“NBC needs to learn he does no work anymore,” Hughes added of Collinsworth.

“Nothing! Stop it! Stop it all of you! Stop it now!”, Cataldi concluded.
