Afternoon update? Um….really nothing of note in any of the later papers…

If you need something to read, over at the Philly Site, Dave has a link to an article in the Philadelphia Daily News, where John Smallwood defends the city of Boston against the comments made by Barry Bonds last week.

Today Eddie Andelman celebrated his 35 years on the airwaves. The opener featured clips from his career, which included a couple spots from the Sports Huddle. There were no mentions of Marc Witkin and Jim McCarthy the other hosts of that long running show, nor were their voices heard in the clips. Eddie never mentions them. Doesn’t that seem strange? What we know is that Witkin and McCarthy hosted their final “Sports Huddle” on WEEI August 17th, 1997. The show had been on the Boston airwaves for 29 years, most of them with Andelman as well. The last few years Eddie had left “Huddle” ostensibly to devote more work to his daytime shows. Sports Huddle didn’t really succeed without Eddie, who after the show was canceled he then took the 7-10 PM Sunday slot with the ill-fated show called “Eddie And…” If you have more details about the breakup of “Sports Huddle” and why Witkin and McCarthy are never even mentioned anymore, feel free to pass them along.
