The man who used it didn’t want it.”
On today’s show, Ed announces the riddle for today and talks about his thoughts on Jacoby Ellsbury’s surprising 7-year contract with the New York Yankees. It’s sad to see him go to such a big rival, but the Red Sox weren’t going to sign him to a contract anywhere close to the one the Yankees gave Ellsbury. It’s the business of baseball.

Double Riddle Day!
“Some try to hide, some try to cheat, but time will show we always will meet.
Try as you might, to guess my name, I promise you’ll know, when you I do claim”
“I’m a god. I’m a planet. I measure heat.”
Mike calls in and nails both of them, within seconds! He is good at riddles.
Ed begins the show with his final rant about the Patriots Monday Night Football game. The reasoning behind the no-call on the final play is frustrating Ed. The idea that the referees didn’t want to “decide the game” with a penalty call is a falsehood. They threw the flag, at that point the only way to not “decide the game” would be to enforce the penalty and let the Patriots run a play from the 1-yard line.

She also previews some other events coming up at the COA including tomorrow’s movie showing, their holiday concert, and holiday decorating day.
