SI.com: We’re here in Vegas for the Fantasy Football Super Draft, how long have you been playing fantasy football?
Dell’Abate: This is only my third season so I’m fairly new to it. We have a Stern Show league with a lot of the guys from the show. It’s myself, John Hein, who co-hosts “The Wrap-Up Show” with me, Will and Jason, who produce in the office, Steve Brandano from “The Intern Show,” Scott “The Engineer,” David Height who does “The History of Howard,” Jared, JD and Jerry O’Connell.
SI.com: You started being called Baba Booey 20 years ago for simply calling Baba Looey, Baba Booey. Do you think that first pitch is going to be with you just as long now?
Dell’Abate: Probably. Who knows? I never thought the name would stick with me that long but I love it. For the most part when someone calls me Baba Booey now it’s a term of endearment.
SI.com: Finally, Howard keeps hinting that he may retire soon, when that day comes is there a chance you might get out of talk radio and start producing a sports show?
Dell’Abate: Yeah, I love sports. I think Real Sports is probably the best show on television. It really is consistently good. It’s about sports and yet you don’t have to be a ports fan to like it. I find my wife watching it with me a lot even though she doesn’t care about the sports stories because they have such great human interest stories. It’s so well done. It’s probably my favorite show on TV right now so that might be a possibility.
