    How's Mutt and Callahan going? Is life without Minihane everything we hoped?

    If you’re favorite flavor is vanilla, favorite spice is salt, favorite color is beige, favorite player is Heinen, favorite car is a Hyundai Sonata and favorite food is buttered pasta....then it’s perfect.

    I always say to each their own but I just don’t know how people listen to Mazz.

    Meanwhile Ty Anderson who used to tear Felger a new one on his hockey knowledge when he was with WEEI is doing a great job on the Hockey Show right now.

    Thought I saw December's numbers for The Racist and Flavorless Mayo in the morning were real bad for EEI.

    They were fine in the demo

    In the most competitive day part, morning drive, The Sports Hub’s “Toucher and Rich” program was first (10.5) while WEEI’s programming — which switched from the “Kirk and Callahan” program to the “Mut and Callahan” program when host Kirk Minihane announced in mid-November he was leaving to host his own show on Radio.com — was second (10.2, or 8.4 plus 1.8 for WVEI/streaming).

    The disdain I have for Felger and Mazz, dating back to their WEEI days is immeasurable.

    I get why people hate Callahan and Minihane.....but to me those two are not only arrogant, they’re not particularly astute about sports or anything else really.

    Ted Johnson was good as a F&M fill-in.

    Felger & Mazz have added a layer of making fun of themselves and being a bit more easy going and it’s working. I can listen to them much more than before. Mazz catches crap as a dummy sometimes but he’s very bright and a good guy. He helped me out with something non sports related and he gets an A plus plus. Love Mazz

    Didn’t you just kill Felger a couple of weeks ago on his hockey take?

    After a year of Minihane I turned off EEI forever,and have never gone back after his departure. So Minihane resulted in at least the permanent loss of 1 listener,so I'm sure there are others.

    What a low blow for Heinen, being equated to that morning show.

    Minihane was an arrogant asshat. The show was awful when he was there, and it’s still pretty bad now with Mutt. I only hate it slightly less because they talk more sports than they did previously.

    Same here, everyday listener of the show since the 90’s. But Minnhane leaving, and WRKO shaking up morning drive, was final nail for me.

    Ty is criminally under used as an on-air guy. He needs to be on the Hockey Show full time. Knows his ****, doesn't have an agenda unlike a certain someone on that show.

    I thought people would think I was being insulting toward vanilla for comparing it to Heinen.
