FORMER WIP host Craig Carton and former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason, who cohost a sports talk show on New York’s WFAN radio, are taking some flak for a print ad promoting their show.
The ad, which can be seen on trains in the New York subway system, reads: “Always offer your seat to a pregnant woman. Unless she’s wearing a Red Sox Hat.”
As expected, the politically-correct crowd is riled by the insensitive nature of the ad. Some websites are actually conducting polls, asking if readers think the radio station crossed the line.
Listen up people. It’s an ad from a sports talk show, not congressional referendum. It pokes fun at the heated rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox — nothing more.
