PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — (Editor’s Note) Stan Hochman, a Daily News sports columnist for 55 years, has been appearing on 94WIP’s morning show for over a year now, settling disputes (and starting new ones) as the “Grand Imperial Poobah.” He brings that persona to on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we welcome input on which issues you want the Poobah to take a good, hard look at. Send requests and ideas for The Poobah to 

Without further ado, here’s The Poobah.


Phil E. Phan: How did the Poobah feel about the governor of New Jersey high-fiving Jerry Jones as the Cowboys trampled the Eagles Sunday night?



Poobah: You mean the fat guy in the ugly red sweater? The last time we had a similar convenient distraction to an awful performance, the fans pelted Santa Claus with snowballs.

The easy explanation is that Pennsylvania has only 20 electoral votes while Texas has 38. Howard Eskin jumped on that even if he couldn’t pronounce electoral. The Poobah thinks it was Christie being Christie, making the point that he is not a politician. That explains the extra poundage, the ugly red sweater, the high-five for the despised Dallas owner in a club box in the Eagles’ stadium. Let him take his act to the George Washington Bridge and jump.


You can hear Stan “The Grand Imperial Poobah” Hochman on the 94WIP Morning Show every Thursday at 7:20am E.T. Send the Philadelphia sports issues you want The Poobah to tackle to
