Thanks For The Wings
On Friday's ON DEMAND we told you about a 12-pack of beer that was stolen from the office refrigerator. The conversation carried over to today's show on Facebook and Twitter with people commenting on whether or not this is fair or unfair. That aside, our friend Ari from Tailgaters Bar and Grille in Galloway Twp brought us in some of their famous wings and a 24-pack of cold Miller Lite! We wanted to save some wings for the Eagles game tonight, but that didn't happen.
Golden Nugget in AC
Found a local story about a casino in Atlantic City who filed a lawsuit against multiple gamblers who won $1.5M playing and betting games of Baccarat this year. The Golden Nugget Casino claims that the decks of cards came from a manufacturer in Missouri and were not shuffled. The Casino thinks they should NOT have to fork out the winnings. An unbelievable story that Mike and Todd discuss.

Mike Gill previews tonight's second preseason game of the year in this segment. Mike is worried about DeMeco Ryans being just another "name" like Ernie Sims, and the injury he suffered in Houston could hurt his chances to be an impact player. Our Eagles Insider Ryan Messick comes on and believes that King Dunlap may find himself starting Week 1 at LT and Nate Allen is a near lock at the safety position.
