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.
I don’t think D&C are unlikeable. They’re passionate and sometimes their comments and opinions can be perceived as negative. But they are incredibly smart, well prepared and far more knowledgeable about sports than Toucher and Rich. That’s why they’re as successful as they are. Toucher and Rich are talented radio guys and they have a following, but if you want sports, D&C are the choice.
