If you receive WEEI’s “Clubhouse” E-mails, then today’s “Major Announcement” came as no surprise. As touted in the latest Clubhouse e-mail, sent earlier in the week, WEEI will be honoring its top “Whiner line” callers in an awards ceremony called “The Whineys” to be held in January. Awards will be handed out in several categories, and Lenny Clarke will be the host of the event. Early odds have the caller known as the “Ghost of Harry Carey” as a favorite to walk away with some of the top honors.
There were obvious ethical questions (consumer fraud, anyone?) about holding out ALL of his starters and regulars in the final exhibition.
