For better or worse, this is the power of Twitter. Within seconds of hanging up the phone this afternoon with New Jersey guest The Amazing Kreskin, ESPN 710 AM host John Ireland was letting listeners know about receiving this tweet:
He also, in the same breath, apologized to the audience for having to suffer through the 20-minute Kreskin conversation. But truth be told, it wasn’t quite as bad as Ireland, colleague Steve Mason and the above fan from “The 818″ were making out.
Sure, Kreskin dropped a ton too many “Let me tell you’s…”, didn’t let the co-hosts get a word in edge-wise and ended with a long, no-payoff Fox Business channel tale. But there were a couple of cute anecdotes early on and guys like this have to a certain extent earned the right to hog the phone.
Still, that follow-up Mason & Ireland appearance that Kreskin was literally slotting himself into during today’s conversation? You don’t need to be a mind reader to guess Mason or Ireland’s thoughts about that.
