BOSTON (CBS) – It’s hard to believe it’s been half of a decade, but 98.5 The Sports Hub is turning five years old this week.
To help ring in this special occasion, we’re reliving all the classic moments from each show — handpicked by the on-air staff!
So without further ado, here’s the Best Of Toucher & Rich:
Brian Scalabrine Calls In After 2010 NBA Finals Loss To Lakers:
Toucher and Rich have had many memorable moments with the White Mamba including, but not limited to The Scallenge, giving him a spray tan on air and all of his weekly interviews, but perhaps his most memorable appearance on the show came in heartbreaking fashion.
The Celtics just lost Game 7 of the NBA Finals to the Lakers in 2010. It was 6:30am Eastern Standard time and Scal, audibly upset and shaken from the loss, called in unannounced at 3:30am Pacific time. At one point during the call you can hear the bartender tell Scalabrine he’ll stay open later just for him.
It was completely organic and original and helped Celtics fans cope the day after the game.
