Angelo Cataldi, the bellicose morning host on WIP-AM (610), was suspended yesterday for two days without pay over a remark he made on his morning show last Tuesday, during a diatribe inspired by the Eagles' new policy prohibiting outside food at Lincoln Financial Field. During a rant over comments by team president Joe Banner, Cataldi said that if the team was responsible for picking the people running the security at the stadium, he expected the guards to be wearing swastikas.

DENNIS RODMAN, aka the U.S. ambassador to North Korea, is going into the liquor business. The former NBA star, a seven-time rebounding champion, is marketing Bad Boy Vodka, a brand that he says, is "a perfect representation of whom I am and what I am all about. " The etched glass bottle contains an image of a black bull in the logo, no doubt a nod to the three championships he won with Chicago. Jorge Olson, the CEO and president of Premier Brands, the company that developed the vodka, thinks he has a winner.

Miss Pennsylvania, Marla Wynne, who was dismissed by Miss America judge Larry King as the ugliest of the pageant's 10 finalists, got her chance to respond to the talk-show megalomaniac yesterday on The Joan Rivers Show. Frankly, she pulled her punches. "I think Larry King didn't understand what the pageant was about," said Wynne, who said she had been wounded by King's comments. "If he knew the work and hours and the blood, sweat and tears that went into it, he wouldn't have been so quick to be insensitive.

RE WHAT Mayor Street said the other day regarding the boos he received in Jacksonville. Just so the mayor knows, I cannot stand Angelo Cataldi. He is a knucklehead for doing what he did to my team's quarterback on draft day. Mayor Street is giving Cataldi too much credit for changing people's opinions. I made up my mind years before Street was even mayor. And the things I've seen on TV and read in the papers makes me want to boo him more. Example: the firefighter waiting for benefits and Hepatitis C care outside his office.

Cataldi vs. Verna. The Italian Stallion versus . . . better not go there. City Council President Anna Verna was getting roughed up on Sportstalk radio station WIP yesterday morning, and after getting calls from constituents, called in to the program to defend herself. Verna said later she was "personally insulted" by some of the banter among the morning yakkers, led by host Angelo Cataldi. "I insult everybody," Cataldi said later. "I did challenge her on the air. I felt somebody had to do that, since the woman's been walking around for two days ignoring what a lot of people believe is a surprisingly fair plan by the Eagles.

Tom Bigby, who helped engineer the sports-talk format at WIP-AM (610) and as program director ran the station with an iron fist for 15 years, has announced that he is leaving later this month. Bigby, 61, will become program director at all-news KRLD-AM in Dallas, where his children and grandchildren live. Like WIP, KRLD is a property of Infinity Broadcasting. His last day in Philadelphia will be July 23. The move by Bigby was generally unexpected among the ranks but appears to be voluntary.

Tony Bruno knows how it feels to be wanted. Really wanted. Since February 1992, Bruno has been part of WIP-AM's five-days-a-week morning fraternity party. For more than two years, he also has worked weekends for ESPN Radio and ESPN2. When Bruno agreed to join ESPN Radio full-time at the beginning of this month, he thought his seven-day grinds were over. Wrong. As his WIP contract was expiring, the station decided it wanted to keep its popular morning show intact. "The day I was leaving," Bruno said, "(WIP)

RE "SOURCES: Birds will let Owls use Linc for $15M upfront" (sports Aug. 7): Thank you Rep. John Perzel and Gov. Rendell for getting involved in the Eagles/Temple fiasco. Over 15 years, the Eagles will get $1 million a year for five to seven Temple home games each season, plus 90 percent of concessions, 100 percent of parking - and Temple pays all game-day expenses. That sounds like a real nice deal for the Eagles. Unbelievably, that isn't enough. They want the $15 million up front!

THE PHONE rang Monday. "Are you listening to WIP?" my sister asked worriedly. "Angelo Cataldi just called you 'a bitch who needs a laxative!' " No sweat, girl. I've been writing this column for 15 years, and I've been called worse (including the c-word by a former state senator). I will say, though, that this was my first insult (that I know of) from a sports-radio guy. Someone rent a catering hall - I've got a milestone to celebrate! Cataldi, WIP's morning host, hated my column about Friday's Wing Bowl - my first time attending.

THERE ARE some things in life that you can't make sense of, even as you watch them unfold with your own eyes. Take Molly Schuyler. The skinny mother of four beat out a bevy of burly competitive eating veterans yesterday morning to win Wing Bowl 22 in front of a rabid packed house at the Wells Fargo Center. The fact that she won isn't what defied belief. It's how she won. Schuyler put away a record 363 chicken wings in three rounds - in the span of an hour - with a level of speed and ferocity that left even WIP morning-show host and Wing Bowl co-creator Angelo Cataldi speechless.

THE MOST wings Jason Kelce had ever eaten in one sitting was 70 at an all-you-can-eat Hooters extravaganza. He's going to have to do better than that on Friday when he participates in WIP's Wing Bowl 22. Yesterday at the NovaCare Complex, media gathered to watch as the Eagles center participated in his qualifier so he could become the first active athlete to take part in the annual bock-bockanalia. Morning show co-host Al Morganti presented Kelce with his challenge: five wings in five minutes.

IT'S HARD TO ADMIT it, but contrary to my proclamation in my last article, I'm no genius after all. When the Phils put up 13 runs in their massacre of the Mets in the first game after the All-Star break, I thought my prediction of a resurgence was coming true. Alas, a disastrous six-game losing streak followed and it's over. It's really over. So forget what I said - no buying. Sell. Not the whole kit and caboodle, but sell. And I think it's time for the front office to be honest with the fans and admit the sad truth that we have all been trying to avoid - that it's over and it's time to look to the future.

His biggest local influences were guys like 6ABC's Jim Gardner and former ABC and CBS 3 reporter/anchor Marc Howard . "I knew who Jim Gardner was long before Peter Jennings ," Tapper told me. "One of the thrills of being at ABC was getting to know Jim Gardner. " Tapper doesn't stay nearly as niche as Gardner's local beat on "The Lead," saying his main goal as a newscaster is to bring front-page news to his viewers.

Part 3 of a series about Philadelphia sports fans. Do the Eagles really have the most fans of any franchise in Philadelphia? "There is no question - none - that the Eagles rule the city," says Angelo Cataldi, lead talker mornings at SportsRadio 94 WIP. "Even in 2008 [when the Phillies won the World Series], the Eagles were a notch above the Phillies in fan interest. It changes according to the fortunes of the teams, but never to the extent where the Phils surpass the Eagles.

FIVE-TIME Wing Bowl champ Bill "El Wingador" Simmons will not be part of this year's 21st annual celebration of gluttony and strippers Feb. 1, says 94 WIP morning host, Angelo Cataldi. Simmons is awaiting trial on a charge of cocaine distribution following his arrest last June in Gloucester County. "We all owe a debt to Bill for what he has done for our event," Cataldi said Tuesday. "But I think for his benefit that his role be downplayed while he's working things out with the courts," continued Cataldi, who wrote a letter on behalf of Simmons for his bail hearing.

IT WAS THE winter of our discontent. Let history show our beloved Eagles had reached a 14-year low. Our equally beloved Phillies were 4 months away from taking the field at Citizens Bank Park and, worse still, we had just learned that our most beloved player, Carlos "Chooch" Ruiz, had been suspended for the first 25 games of the season because of substance abuse. Our not quite so beloved Sixers were not reaching anywhere near their full potential, because their newly acquired savior, Andrew Bynum (for whom we paid a king's ransom)
