Earlier today on WFAN, Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton quizzed former Giants coach Jim Fassel about Big Blue’s weekend sojourn to Wembley Stadium. Predictably, Fassel describe himself as “old school”, and bemoaned what the loss of this game would mean to Miami’s season ticket holders (presumably denied a chance to witness their club going 0-16). Carton joined the chorus of derision, insisting “the flight will take 2-3 days”.
I’d hate to characterize Carton as frighteningly ignorant, so instead I’ll merely suggest he might be very relieved to find out there’s an entire civilization beyond the tri-state area. Either that, or he needs a new travel agent.
