John Sterling Reads From Mraz’s Vegas Trip Fat Journal on ‘The D.A. Show’

“Won’t see a scale for me until Mother’s Day at the earliest. It’s over, man. What a disgrace.”

Since learning he was “max obese” according to BMI (Body Mass Index) in January, The D.A. Show‘s co-host and producer Shaun Morash (Mraz) has been keeping a “fat journal” to help him monitor what he’s eating and presumably lose weight.

But rather than record his intake and suffer in silence, Damon Amendolara, Andrew Bogusch, and Pete Bellotti have used Mraz’s fat journal for maximum comedy. In a running bit, The D.A. Show has been enlisting members of Mraz’s family and special guest radio personalities to read from the journal. (Is the content actually from Mraz’s fat journal or written up by Bellotti? You make the call.)

On Thursday, legendary New York Yankees radio play-by-play announcer John Sterling got the honor of reading from Mraz’s fat journal for listeners. And these entries were particularly entertaining, as they were written during a weekend trip to Las Vegas.

Amid gambling, drinking, and debauchery, what are the chances anyone would stick to a strict diet and monitor food intake? Surely, only the most disciplined. And as D.A. Show fans know, that is not Mraz.

Please listen to Sterling’s audio reading from the Vegas weekend fat journal and enjoy Amendolara’s reactions in the clip below.

“Wednesday night, two Amstel Lights before my flight and a slice of very below-average dollar pizza at JFK,” Sterling narrated. “Landed Vegas time 11:30 p.m., throw down two tall boy Modelos and at 3 a.m., a grilled chicken sandwich with fries from Johnny Rocket’s.”

Subsequent entries and meals included a blueberry Dunkin Donut, chicken nachos, burger and fries, and many, many beers and whiskeys. Hey, it was St. Patrick Day’s! Oh, there was a hot fudge sundae in there too. In addition to some egg whites and grilled vegetables along the way for healthy eating.

Besides Sterling’s voice bringing Mraz’s journal to life, other highlights included chocolate chip pancakes, dancing with women who “could’ve played offensive line in college football,” and a meat-laden extravaganza at a Brazilian steakhouse. The weekend — and journal entries — ended with an 18-hour ordeal of losing money on Kansas, flight delays, brisket, whole chicken, and Malibu and Cokes that wrecked any pretense of eating and living healthy.

“Won’t see a scale for me until Mother’s Day at the earliest,” read Sterling. “It’s over, man. What a disgrace.”

Kudos for Mraz to subjecting himself to embarrassment in the name of comedy. On the bright side, how many of us get to have our bad habits and weaknesses read by a legendary baseball broadcaster with a deep, booming voice?

If you’d like to compare, here is Tiki Barber’s reading of Mraz’s fat journal. Some might think Tiki’s renditon is more personable and relatable than the authoritative version read by Sterling.

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

“Be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
