Join us today as we celebrate, yet another, Chicken Box Friday. This is clearly the best day of the week.
In studio today, Spencer Folau, Ken Zalis, and Casey Willett will get his first experience with Chicken Box Friday. We’ll talk Ravens as Baltimore continues to try to convince me that Troy Smith was DRAFTED to be the team’s quarterback of the future. Are you excited about the team being in camp at this point in the season, or is it irrelevant? Are you pressed because of the lack of veteran presence in camp?
We’ll have Oriole talk. With a five game losing streak hanging over the team, is there any interest in the Baltimore Orioles? I want to find 10 families who are making the trek to the Nation’s Capital to see this series. Give me three people who are excited about this series. What ever happened to the Oriole/Philly series? Now, that was exciting.
So, NFL, MLB, even NBA on a very exciting Chicken Box Friday. Pass the hot sauce and join us Friday. Don’t worry Ray Bachman, I’ll eat yours for you.

As much as I love my job, I love Chicken Box Friday even more. This is the most unpredictable day on my show. It’s funny, as unpredictable as it is we probably do more planning for Friday than any other day. No, not necessarily the guest or anything like that. We put as much time into planning the guest on Chicken Box Friday as we do the other days. There’s a different kind of planning that goes on.
Chicken Box Friday is all about the chicken box. The entire day centers on those five chicken wings, western fries, and a half and half. If we don’t get that right, then the entire show is ruined.
Just ask Tom Peace. Last week, he went out to a restaurant that sold chicken and put it in a box, but it wasn’t a chicken box. My mojo was not with me. I felt like a fish out of water. In fact, Tom could have brought us a fish out of water, fried in batter with hot sauce on it. But no, he brought us a box of chicken.
Now, don’t get the impression that Tom is a screw up, because he’s not. However, you can’t send just anybody to get a chicken box. I wouldn’t send my two MLB Report co-host, Ryan Eigenbrode and Allen McCallum to go get a chicken box. Ryan would get chicken from some franchise and insult all of us. We would have to explain what a chicken box was to Allen. This is a job for someone who is well grounded in chicken boxology. Someone who spent time studying under the great chicken box scholars and philosophers.
Yes, today we sent Ray Bachman out to right his wrong. We sent “Bach” out to brave the “hood” elements and find the cuisine that we grew up on. Please Ray, don’t forget the hot sauce.
