Someone needs a mulligan.
Broadcasting from Las Vegas in the lead-up to Super Bowl LVIII, WFAN’s Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti found themselves in an amusing mix-up regarding their scheduled guest, Randy Moss.
Their longtime producer, Al Dukes, informed them that Randy Moss would be joining the show, prompting surprise from Giannotti, a dedicated Minnesota Vikings fan. Curious about the purpose of Moss’s visit, Giannotti asked what the former NFL wide receiver was promoting.
Dukes confidently replied that Moss was involved in horse racing-related endeavors post-retirement, assuming it was the same Randy Moss they were expecting. However, when Esiason and Giannotti mentioned another Randy Moss, an announcer for NBC Sports’ horse racing coverage, Dukes grew concerned.
Realizing the mix-up, Esiason and Giannotti burst into laughter, jokingly scolding Dukes for booking the wrong Randy Moss. Despite acknowledging the broadcaster Randy Moss’s expertise in horse racing, they couldn’t help but find the situation amusing.
Giannotti’s quick question about Moss’s promotion inadvertently saved them from an awkward encounter with the horse racing analyst instead of the NFL Hall of Famer. The humorous gaffe added an unexpected twist to their show’s segment, sparking laughter and discussion about the mix-up.
Although the interview with Randy Moss, whether the former NFL star or the horse racing analyst, wouldn’t have made headlines, Dukes’ mistake turned into a memorable moment on air.
The incident prompted humorous speculation about potential interactions between the two Randy Mosses and became a topic of conversation on sports radio.
Straight cash homie.
