Dave Jageler was joined by Mike Adams for the third day in a row. Right off the top, Sean Grande (who doubles as programming director) called in, and was talking with Adams about rumors in the media room last night at the Celtics game about who will be joining Adams on the morning show. Word was that someone would be defecting from WEEI. Adams would only say there is someone coming over to join him, but he’s sworn to the person that he would not reveal who it is. (Later, word was that former Big Show intern “Candy” would be joining Adams. What her role will be isn’t clear…perhaps a “flash girl” type role.) Ron Hobson joined Dale Arnold for three hours mostly devoted to Terry O’Reilly and the possibility of the Expos playing in Boston. At the end of the show, they had Red Sox executive vice president of business affairs Mike Dee on the show, and he dismissed the Expos rumors, citing neighborhood and operational concerns. The Big Show was Steve DeOssie and Levan Reid with the Big O, and the leadoff topic was the MasterCard greatest MLB moment. They all agreed it was a sham as well. Will McDonough and Pete Brock joined Butch Stearns on the McDonough group.

HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” next week will have the “coming out” of former NFL defensive lineman Esera Tuaolo. I’d never heard of the guy before. ESPN’s Sterling Sharpe, a former teammate of Tuaolo was interviewed for the show, and says: Had he come out on a Monday, with Wednesday, Thursday, Friday practices, He’d have never gotten to the other team.” Asked if his own guys would’ve cheap-shotted him, Sharpe went on to say “He would have never gotten to the game on Sunday.” “He’s done.” Other segments include features on former boxer Rodney Cummings, who rose from a life of youth crime to become a Prosecuting attorney, a look at the just how overweight American kids are, and why, as finally a sitdown with Johnnie Cochran and Cyrus Mehri, who recently released a report criticizing NFL hiring practices and threatening the league with a lawsuit unless more minority candidates are given opportunities. The show airs for the first time next Tuesday, Oct 29 from 10:00-11:00 PM
