Bill Simmons spent a couple nights last week hanging out with Charles Barkley and the gang at TNT during productions of “Inside the NBA”. Predictably, talk on WEEI today has been about Manny and his injury, (Should Cubbage have sent him…) and also the Celtics. All of a sudden, the Celtics can beat the Lakers, according to the callers. One caller was trying to describe a seven game series between the Patriots and Rams. He was adamant, but made not a lick of sense. On WWZN, Eddie had Matt Siegel and Billy Costa from KISS 108FM with him. They seemed to spend a most of the time I heard talking about all the avenues Costa makes money from. A typical Eddie departure from sports. Don’t expect a whole lot of sports talk on his show this week with the Hot Dog Safari coming up next weekend.
