Question and Answer with Gary Dell'Abate

SI.com: We’re here in Vegas for the Fantasy Football Super Draft, how long have you been playing fantasy football?

Dell’Abate: This is only my third season so I’m fairly new to it. We have a Stern Show league with a lot of the guys from the show. It’s myself, John Hein, who co-hosts “The Wrap-Up Show” with me, Will and Jason, who produce in the office, Steve Brandano from “The Intern Show,” Scott “The Engineer,” David Height who does “The History of Howard,” Jared, JD and Jerry O’Connell.

SI.com: You started being called Baba Booey 20 years ago for simply calling Baba Looey, Baba Booey. Do you think that first pitch is going to be with you just as long now?

Dell’Abate: Probably. Who knows? I never thought the name would stick with me that long but I love it. For the most part when someone calls me Baba Booey now it’s a term of endearment.

SI.com: Finally, Howard keeps hinting that he may retire soon, when that day comes is there a chance you might get out of talk radio and start producing a sports show?

Dell’Abate: Yeah, I love sports. I think Real Sports is probably the best show on television. It really is consistently good. It’s about sports and yet you don’t have to be a ports fan to like it. I find my wife watching it with me a lot even though she doesn’t care about the sports stories because they have such great human interest stories. It’s so well done. It’s probably my favorite show on TV right now so that might be a possibility.

F the SFN. It’s a horrid site, that barely works, with a bunch of no life having guys all sucking at the tit of an old man that clearly lives in a bubble now. Howard has completely made the transformation into Hampton’s Howie.

Stern used to be my favorite show, but now it truly is awful. I’m just glad I wasn’t dumb enough to pay for satellite radio and instead downloaded the episodes for free without commercials and put them on my iPod with no limitation as to where I can listen. No need for extra equipment. MP3 player plus my car, and home theater system which both have aux input jacks, or just headphones. All free and way better than paying and listening to Howie talk about the fucking Bachelor, American Idol, or Beth on an over-priced piece of shit “radio” that would break after six months.

SFN sucks, Mutt is a leech and a nobody, Joey Boots is a fat jobless fake-fag for cash. All of these nobodies need to be on suicide watch when old daddy money banks retires in two years.
