WBUL morning hosts DeAnn Stephens and JD Pelletier decided not to let CBS Early Show weatherman Dave Price get away with trash-talking the University of Kentucky basketball team, who will annihilate play his alma mater, Cornell, Thursday in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
Price has been wearing his Cornell hoodie on the air this week and talking about how Big Red will kick Big Blue’s butt Thursday night — his fantasy words, not ours.
“Dave,” Stephens asked the delusional highly-educated weatherman, when she got him on the air Wednesday morning. “What were you thinking?”
Pointing out he was 700 miles away, Price said, “this is like a local game for Cornell. The Carrier Dome,” where the game will be played, “is 48 miles from the Cornell campus.”
Stephens said that doesn’t scare UK and Pelletier advised Price to wait until he sees all the blue in Syracuse.
JD and DeAnn got Price on the air to try to get him to agree to give Kentucky equal time on The Early Show. On their blog, they say they got Price to agree to wear a UK sweatshirt on the air Friday after if Kentucky wins Thursday.
