Philadelphia, PA – Just an hour into his new midday show, former Eagles fullback Jon Ritchie is already bleeding profusely from his forehead and it doesn’t seem as if it will stop anytime soon.
Ritchie and Joe DeCamara are the newest midday hosts for 94 WIP Sports Radio, taking over for former midday show Mike and Ike, featuring Michael Barkann and Ike Reese, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Reese will host an afternoon drive show in the near future and Barkann was let go from the station.
Around 10:56 a.m., an audible dripping noise could be heard on the audio of the show while the co-hosts were discussing the Eagles victory over the Vikings
Ritchie, a fullback with the Eagles from 2003 to 2004, was known for his excessive forehead bleeding during each game he played.
The practice seems to have continued past his playing days.
“Oops, there it goes. That’s a gusher too. It’s ok, we’ll just ride it out and it should stop in, oh, an hour or two,” Ritchie said, a stream of blood spurting out onto DeCamara’s freshly cleaned and pressed button down white shirt.
DeCamara violently dry heaved as he noticed several drops of blood landing in Ritchie’s mug of coffee, which he then drank without a blink of an eye.
“It was in me just seconds before…what does it matter? I’m not going to walk all the way to the breakroom to get another cup, geez,” Ritchie said, before taking another gulp. “Yummy….coppery.”
At press time, a woozy Ritchie noted he had to sit down for a few minutes before continuing his rant about how today’s game is too soft.
