Cataldi, who once wrote in a column, “Above all, Hinkie was a loser,” feigned surprised when co-workers questioned his choice of apparel.

The 66-year-old 94 WIP sports talk host visited the popular Jersey shore location for Memorial Day Weekend and savored a beach visit during the brisk day.

Is this the face of the next 97.5 Fanatic Morning Show host?

The rumor mill is a-churning this morning, as an ex-94 WIP sports talk radio host may have thrown his obese sombrero into the ring to replace the disgruntled lover of incredible meats Anthony Gargano, who has not been on the 97.5 Fanatic Morning Show for three straight days now.

Gargano was reportedly upset that producer Maureen “Mr.” Crowley Williams had been fired from the station earlier in the week. Gargano, who has long been rumored to “like like” MCW, has been notably absent from the airwaves since Tuesday.

But a familiar face to the Philadelphia sports talk scene made a splash on social media Wednesday morning. Josh Innes, who previously hosted the midday show at 94 WIP and currently hosts the Josh Innes Show on Sports Talk 790 in Houston, responded to a fan on Twitter Wednesday afternoon and said he would be willing to make a return to the Philadelphia airwaves.

Follow the jump to see the tweet Innes sent out Wednesday:

94 WIP risks its journalistic integrity, discusses highly controversial Eagles “mock draft”

08d40986-1dba-cfd3-ff75-dad5ce49b42dPerhaps in a desperate attempt to bolster its sliding ratings, 94 WIP threw caution to the wind this morning when Midday host Joe DeCamara decided to discuss, on live air, a controversial NFL mock draft that has been floating around the dark web of the internet for the past week.

For perhaps the first time in the station’s vaunted and respected history, a sports talk show decided to acknowledge and discuss unverified rumors about an upcoming sporting event.

Only previously discussed in hushed tones by journalists behind closed doors, DeCamara brought up the several page document, published by an unknown NFL insider and malcontent at ESPN, which attempted to accurately predict every pick for the seven round draft based on each team’s needs on the field.

Philadelphia strippers relieved to have most embarrassing day of the year finally over

The worst moment of any stripper’s career…being a Wingette.

Philadelphia, PA – Strippers throughout the Delaware Valley were able to breathe a sigh of relief this morning after Wing Bowl 25 finally came to a merciful close. The annual eating event has long been described as the most “embarrassing and humiliating” day of the year for women who take their clothes off for money in Philadelphia.

City gentlemen clubs have provided their employees as “Wingettes” for the annual event, much to the horror of the women who actually have to attend Wing Bowl.

Roseman noted he felt as if he should give the fans an explanation of why Rowe, a second year cornerback that has found success with the Super Bowl bound Patriots, was traded for a 2018 4th round draft pick.

Seth Joyner should probably stop talking about hitting his kids on the WIP Midday show

Joyner.

(Editor’s note: This is not part of our usual satire content, but an actual conversation heard on the 94 WIP Midday show this afternoon featuring Seth Joyner that rubbed us the wrong way)

I’m not public relations employee or anything, but it’s probably not a good idea to talk about hitting your kids on a sports talk show.

During a segment this afternoon on the 94 WIP Midday Show, host Jon Ritchie was talking about his ability as a player to channel his anger into motivation to do well on the field with co-host Joe DeCamara and Joyner. Joyner decided it was a perfectly fine opportunity to drop a nonchalant anecdote about why it’s ok to hit your kids.

Here is what Seth said during the segment today (you can hear it here. It starts at the 6:19 point with Jon Ritchie):

Ritchie: Anger used to be rewarded, and maybe that’s changing. That puts these coaches in a difficult situation, and I understand that. Sometimes guys don’t respond the same way as they once did.

Joyner: You know what the problem is? The problem is we’ve got sports psychologists, we got psychiatrists and we got counselors that are advising people in a realm that they don’t really understand, that the way that it used to be isn’t the way that it should be anymore that we need to do it differently. Everything from our kids. Oh, don’t yell at Billy, just put him on timeout and put him in the corner. Don’t yell at Billy, just talk to him. You know?  I can see it, because before my mom passed away, god bless her, I’d take my kids to go see her. I’d be on their ass about something, and she’d be like, ‘Don’t yell at them, talk to them. You don’t have to beat them.’ I’m like, you beat the hell out of me! What are you talking about? It worked for me. Now all of a sudden you want me to talk to them? No, they’re going to get exactly what I got.

Ritchie: Yeah my parents are really nice to my kids. It’s annoying to me how nice my parents are to my kids, but it’s good, I guess.

::Joe DeCamara quickly changes topics::

Maybe he doesn’t think what he said is wrong? I don’t know. I’m sure he doesn’t really beat his kids, but why the joke if he’s joking? Just a really weird thing to say.

Isn’t that basically what got Adrian Peterson kicked out the league for a year? Beating his kid with a switch because it was done to him and that was “all he knew”?

Maybe chill out a bit, Seth, and keep the child hitting anecdotes to yourself.
