Yup, you fell for it too.
At least you didn't sound like an ass during the morning commute on a major market radio station! Our traffic reporter however, Meredith Marx, pictured below (the one without the hat), can't say that with a straight face.
This morning I called her in advance of making the announcement on the air. To sum up her reaction: Hook. Line. Sinker. Since the Flacco that is heading to Boston was Joe's little brother Mike, I (technically) never lied.
Mike Flacco is now in the Boston Red Sox minor league system after hitting .218 with 8 home runs and 35 RBI for the Frederick Keys last year. I would like to publicly apologize to Meredith Marx for misleading her. I would also like to thank her for taking a ride on the gullible bus. I was pretty good radio, which is rare for my show.
Yes, there is audio!
