Chuck Booms Stars In A Euclid Mayoral Campaign Video… AND LOOK AT HIS SHIRT!!!

Ah, October. The time for football, Halloween, and low budget political commercials that fill up your TV screen during every commercial break. Here we have former 92.3 The Fan host Chuck Booms endorsing Euclid mayoral candidate David Lynch. But let’s not focus on politics in this blog post. Let’s focus on that majestic 50% cotton/50% polyester blend button up shirt that ol’ Chucky is sporting.

Fire. Absolute Randy Johnson high heat fire. I mean, look at this baby

At first glance I couldn’t tell if this was a political ad or the new trailer for the Team America: World Police sequel. So much America oozing from that shirt that right after I watched these videos I immediatly went to YouTube and started listening to instrumental versions of The Star Spangled Banner. USA USA USA!!!

Miss you on the airwaves, Chuck.

PS: My dad lived in Euclid in his 20s and literally every other day he talks about how great the E. 185th Festival used to be until they cancelled it. Don’t really know how Euclid is now but I can tell you that as a 27 year old I won’t be moving there any time soon.

PPS: Booms + Hulk is a match made in heaven

Chuck Booms is out at 92.3 The Fan. This sucks.

Via Cleveland Scene

It wasn’t long before the Twitter rumors were confirmed by a source to Scene this morning.

Chuck Booms, who did his show on 92.3 The Fan this morning, was indeed fired by the station.

That’s all we got for now. When we hear more, we’ll update here. We reached out to Booms and 92.3 management but haven’t received a response yet.


This is a sad day for Cleveland sports radio. I know a lot of people in town don’t like Booms but I always got a kick out of him. Sure sometimes he’d make me want to slam my head against the wall or force me to change the station every now and then. But he always kept things interesting. He wasn’t one of the boring cookie cutter radio hosts like Mike & Mike or Baskin & Phelps. He told you what was on his mind no matter if it was politically correct or not. You have to respect that. He was a Clevelander through and through and you could feel that in his voice every morning from 6-10.

Exhibit A: His recent interview with Dan Shaughnessy

Today was a big loss for the anti-PC crowd.

Goodnight, Sweet Prince.

Update: Here’s what Booms had to say

Phil Taylor is not a fan of 92.3 The Fan; Challenges Chuck Booms to a boxing match in the Muni Lot

Quick backstory: On 92.3 The Fan the boys on Kiley and Booms started discussing some of the Instagram pictures Phil Taylor has posted recently. Chuck Booms started complaining that he didn’t like Phil posting pictures of him hunting & his guns on Instagram. Because that’s what Browns fans need to be worried about; one of our better defensive players going on hunting trips.

A couple of the pics in question:

Ready for this hunt in the AM!!

A post shared by Phil Taylor (@philtaylor98) on

 

Chuck then went on to say that the NFL should punish Phil for his pictures because it creates a bad image and the hosts then went as far as to compare Phil’s Instagram posts to Aaron Hernandez. (I don’t know the exact quotes but if someone could get it that’d be appreciated)

Someone alerted Phil of what was being said and as you can imagine he didn’t take very kindly to those words

My take: Can you agree with both sides? I get the point Booms was trying to make in that in light of everything that’s going on with the Aaron Hernandez trial that it might not be the wisest decision to post gun pictures on social media. I personally don’t have a problem if someone is a responsible gun owner and posts a picture, but can see how someone might take that the wrong way. Making even the slightest reference to Aaron Hernandez when talking about an Instagram picture is just unconscionably stupid though. To even bring up a murderers name when discussing an INSTAGRAM picture is mind boggling.

As for the hunting pictures, I have no issue with them. Professional athletes hunt and post pictures of their kill all the time. Remember when Adam LaRoche posted this picture after he killed this beast?

Or this picture of a mountain lion?

Just because a player is a professional athlete doesn’t mean he or she can’t post pictures of themselves hunting. People hunt. It’s a hobby. There’s a billion other things to worry about in regards to your hometown sports team, this isn’t one of them.

All I know is I bet the Browns public relations team isn’t too excited right about now. My guess is that a defensive lineman challenging a 50-something morning drive radio host to a fight isn’t exactly good for business. I applaud Phil for standing up for himself in that regard though.

As for the boxing match how much do you think tickets would cost? Because I’d pay infinity dollars to see Phil Taylor and Chuck Booms square off inside of a ring in the Muni Lot. Who needs the UFC to come to Cleveland when we could have that entertainment.

Go Browns
