On Friday, Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton discussed the story regarding Kellen Winslow who was charged with possession of synthetic marijuana. Eventually, Carton spoke on his personal experiences with weed, which were met with some criticism from co-host Boomer. Soon, Carton responded, saying, "Listen, don't even pretend like you're, Mr. Innocent." And that's when this gem of a story came out from Boomer:

“… The radio booth is like a lean-to in the middle of the stands. And it’s a (December) game.

And there’s this grim reaper outside of our booth, and he’s got a hoodie on and he’s got a big ol’ puffy jacket on, and he’s smoking weed. And he’s blowing it into the lean-to.
“I mean, we’re 3 minutes into the game and Matt Millen’s already looking for something to eat. And Howard David is trying to keep us focused on the game, and Matt Millen and I are talking about everything but the game.
“We have the second-hand smoke going on. Now, we obviously know what’s happening, but we don’t necessarily know that we’re reacting to what’s happening. … I was laughing my ass off for the entire first half!”RELATED: The 50 Biggest Sports Commentator Fails
