We hate it when the rich and famous fight, but the slugfest between WIP-AM's Angelo Cataldi and Howard Eskin has spilled over to this realm. Bloggers are weighing in, and so we're duty-bound to report on the view from the cheap seats.
Fat Bastard v Wolfman is how RisingSign sizes up the match.
The ongoing feud between WIP's Angelo Cataldi and Howard Eskin has all the charm of two monkeys slinging feces at each other at the Philadelphia Zoo. Both men are obscenely overpaid (Cataldi rakes in over $1,000,000 per year), pathetically uninformed, and desperately trying to be something they're not.
Eskin slammed Cataldi's morning co-hosts Rhea Hughes and Al Morganti, Cataldi contends. On his site, Cataldi unloads:
As I've stated before on this sire, Howard Eskin is the most unprofessional person I've ever had to work with, and I've been at it for 34 years now. He has no respect for any of his co-workers, he has a vastly overrated work ethic, he trades his opinion to any athlete or coach who pays attention to him, and he is a gold-plated phony.
In Rising Sign's sights, Cataldi comes off as an old man in a trenchcoat hanging out by the cheerleaders' dressing room. Eskin -- the fur coat wearing, self-professed 'King Of Bling' -- gives new meaning to the word sycophant as he weasels his nose up the rear end of any third-tier athlete Philadelphia has to offer.
Together these colleagues make more than $1.6 million a year. Could pay for a lot of therapy.
