Mully & Haugh React To Mass Shooting in Highland Park on 670 The Score

“At 10 o’clock in the morning, you don’t expect to be running for your life from a downtown parade.”

The scene in Highland Park on the 4th of July was unimaginable. Six people are dead and 24 others were injured after a gunman opened fire on a crowd attending the Chicago suburb’s annual Independence Day parade.

On Tuesday morning, 670 The Score hosts Mully & Haugh described their feelings watching coverage of the attack on local television stations.

“It will be a difficult work day for a lot of people in Chicago, in the area, and a lot of people in Highland Park, and a lot of people everywhere because of yesterday,” David Haugh said in opening the show.

Mike Mulligan said he was doing show prep when he got a text to turn his television on. He was struck by a doctor named David Baum, who was at the parade and decided to help victims rather than flee.

Dr. Baum described what he called “battle wounds” on the victims hit by the bullets fired from an automatic weaponed fired by Robert Crimo.

“I think we’ve seen these things happen so often that there’s a kind of numbness that settles in, but the idea that it happened in a Chicago suburb changes that narrative,” Mully said. “The idea that it happens here changes that. Now, people are murdered, people are killed in this city at an astounding rate, at a horrific rate. Every weekend, you can look at a map and see where the shootings were and they’re all over this city, and the gun violence in this city is horrific. But yesterday was the Fourth go July. It was a time where families get out and they celebrate and people are in this suburb in Highland Park and people are having a parade to celebrate America and maybe one of the most American things that can ever happen happens, which is a mass shooting.”

He said Baum’s description reminded him of seeing victims of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 that had suddenly lost limbs.

Mully & Haugh‘s Score colleague Danny Parkins has been critical of people using Chicago’s gun violence to score political points in the past. Haugh remarked that even those people haven’t been so quick to dismiss what happened on Monday as a typical Chicago problem.

“Highland Park is your quintessential American suburb and people find it a little more relatable because it does hit closer to home for a lot of people,” he said. “At 10 o’clock in the morning, you don’t expect to be running for your life from a downtown parade.”

T-Bob Hebert: Bally Sports is Taking Advantage of Customers

“Pathetic, Bally, read the room! You suck!”

Bally Sports is getting set to roll out its premium streaming service Bally Sports+ on September 26.

All 19 of the Bally regional sports networks will be able to stream games on the service.

Those interested can pay either $19.99 a month or $189.99 per year for the service. But one Baton Rouge host thinks the asking price to watch New Orleans Pelicans games this season on the service is too steep.

“I‘m going to put this as succinctly as I can. F Bally Sports,” T-Bob Hebert said on Off The Bench on 104.5 ESPN Wednesday. “The worst part is I love (Pelicans broadcasters) Joel Meyers and Antonio Daniels. I think they’re one of the best combinations in the entirety of the NBA. And it’s not even that you’re asking me to pay. I’m down to pay.”

“But $20 a month?!? That is rapacious,” Hebert added. “You are taking advantage because you know that you have the only avenue with which to view this Pelicans team.”

Currently Bally Sports New Orleans is only available in the market on DirecTV. Apparently none of the other cable providers carry the network, so Bally seems to have fans by the jugular. That doesn’t sit well with Hebert.

“‘Just bundle it with DirecTV,'” Hebert said mockingly. “I don’t want to!! I just want to watch the games!”

Hebert added that given the added excitement level surrounding this Pelicans team, it’s really doing the fans a disservice to charge $20 a month to watch.

“They’re making it oppressively hard and expensive on the actual people who care and want to watch,” he said. “Pathetic, Bally, read the room! You suck!”

Brady Quinn Calls Paul Finebaum A “SEC Thumper”

“Give him a break. He’s an SEC thumper,” Quinn said.

Brady Quinn, Paul Finebaum

College football season kicks off in the next couple of weeks, and earlier this week the Associated Press released its preseason national top 25 rankings.

Alabama claimed the top spot, with Ohio State, defending national champion Georgia, Clemson and Notre Dame rounding out the top five.

But Paul Finebaum apparently took issue with Notre Dame being ranked where they were, and said partly why the Fighting Irish shouldn’t be in the top five is because of their Week 1 matchup.

“They should not even be in the top ten. It’s an absolute joke, and it happens every year with the AP poll, which is about as worthless as NFL preseason football,” Finebaum said in a recent appearance on ESPN. “It’s ridiculous. Notre Dame is going to get run in the first game of the season. I mean they’re going to get destroyed at The Big House…They’ll be fortunate to go 9-3. It’s laughable they’re in the top five or six.”

On FOX Sports Radio, former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn felt the need to set Finebaum straight. He did firstly by correcting the SEC Network host, who said Notre Dame would be playing Michigan to open the season. Notre Dame is playing at Ohio State in Week 1.

“Give him a break. He’s an SEC thumper,” Quinn said on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe on Wednesday. “So I’m surprised he even knows where Ohio State is to be honest with you, or Notre Dame. Apparently he doesn’t.”

Hey Paul, how many teams are going to walk in to Ohio State and Columbus this year and beat them?” Quinn asked. “Probably no one.”

Quinn finished by taking a little jab at the fact that the Notre Dame/Ohio State game would be in primetime for ESPN, which runs the SEC Network.

“He’s bashing his employer’s matchup between these two and trying to downplay it,” he said. “So well done, Paul, lot of logic there.”

Zolak and Bertrand

Scott Zolak and Marc Bertrand were broadcasting live from the New England Patriots’ joint practice with the Carolina Panthers. During their show, things got heated between the two teams, multiple times, and the show was there to call it all.

Bertrand was bringing the show back from commercial break and noted that there had just been a fight moments before Zolak and Bertrand were live.

“This drill got escalated by the Panthers here,” said co-host and former Patriots quarterback. “This is number three (fights)in a freaking kickoff drill. A kickoff drill!”

Shortly after, Bertrand was describing the efforts to separate the two teams when even more chaos erupted.

“They’ve separated all the players,” began Bertrand, sensing some calm was being restored. “They’ve sent them on their way to the next period so you’ve got — and now here comes another fight. Another major fight! It’s happening right in front of the stands.”

“These guys are a-holes man,” spoke Zolak. “Get these clowns out of here. All they want to do is fight. This is unreal. I’ve never seen anything like this.”

“What a scene,” said Bertrand.

“I’ve never seen anything like this at a camp… this is great today,” beamed Zolak. “Thank God we’re down here!”
