Walk Of Shame

Watching the weather report last night the Mysterious Chinese Woman and I decided that today would be a great day to just stay inside and watch some old movies, like I Walked With a Zombie and Cat People. But, the best laid plans of mice and men...

Around 10:00 P.M. or so I got a call from my brother-in-law Jim. As many of you probably have come to realize, he is a bit of an instigator. His call was to inform me that Craig Carton of WFAN radio station lost a bet that the Giants would lose to Dallas in last week's playoff game. To pay off the bet he has agreed to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge at noon today. But, of course, there is more to it than that. He will be wearing a one-size-too-small Giants jersey, Giants Crocs and a Speedo swimsuit. He will also be carrying a sign that reads, “Any Given Sunday.’’

At noon Carton will begin his “Walk of Shame’’ on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge, which is just a few blocks from where I live in good old Downtown Brooklyn. People with no more sense then Bar Man can join in the festivities by meeting at Cadman Plaza East and Tillary Street at 11:30 A.M.

The event will be covered on the station’s mid-day show as well as WFAN's web site, which will also have video highlights.

As you might imagine, Jim talked me into joining this merry group so I will also be posting pictures of the event right here.

WFAN's website can be found at so be sure to check it out.
