Clayton: Wolf! Wolf!

October 18, 2009

Fox & Friends Weekend falls short again: what a wager waste! Dave Briggs returned, and the fans were spurned. The Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor paid up his lost bet with a plug nickel and, not surprisingly, his hapless co-host Clayton Morris happily accepted it.

As the reader may recall, Clayton announced that the loser of the Philadelphia Phillies/Colorado Rockies wager would wear the opposing team’s uniform for the entire show and serve up the winner’s hometown delicacies. After the Rockies lost and Dave subsequently returned, the author cautioned Dave not to “welch” on his bet the way he had accused Kilmeade of doing. Dave Tweeted, “[Y]es @Jakeho I will pay up on the bet, Sunday & it will hurt.”

Today instead of biting the bullet and putting on his full Phillies regalia from the get-go, Dave waited until the very last minute of the show (9:59 a.m. ET) and served up Philadelphia cheesesteaks in simply a Phillies baseball cap and jersey. The more jaded Fox & Friends viewer probably expected this half-hearted and partially fulfilled promise to the fans. After all, Clayton had let Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson out of their lost Philadelphia Eagles/New York Giants wager after tantalizing the F&F audience for weeks with a similarly humbling outcome.

Fooled me once, shame on you, Clayton. Fooled me twice, shame on me! Lesson learned. What was that again, Clayton? Wolf?

Clayton: Dave “to Pay Up”

October 16, 2009

Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs is glad to be home–for now. Yesterday, Dave Tweeted, “Back from Buenos Aires, bummed about my Rockies but happy to be back in the US.” Today as both he and his co-host Clayton Morris promoted Saturday’s show on F&F today, Clayton welcomed Dave back in his inimitable fashion.

When F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy segued to Clayton and Dave to preview the program, Clayton pointed at Dave and declared, “And, by the way, you’re going to pay up on your Phillies’ bet: you lost! We’re going to be doing that on the show.” Dave grimaced, nodded, and said, “Uh-huh.”

Two weeks ago Sunday Dave and Clayton announced that they would bet on the series between Dave’s Colorado Rockies and Clayton’s Philadelphia Phillies. Last weekend, having solicited viewer input as to the terms of the wager, Clayton presented the agreement in Dave’s absence. I.e., whoever lost the bet would appear in the cap and uniform of the opposing team for the full show and serve the winner delicacies from his home town. E.g., if Clayton won, Dave would put on Philly regalia and present Clayton with Philly cuisine.

If Dave is true to his word (and Clayton correctly stated the terms of the bet), viewers will get to see waiter Dave in action. Instead of dispensing Royal Red Robin burgers, he will be serving up Philly cheesesteaks in his Phillies accoutrements. Tomorrow should be quite entertaining.

Dave, don’t pull a Kilmeade, or, as you would say, “welch” on your wager!

Update: Apparently, Clayton actually meant that Dave would “pay up” sometime this weekend, not necessarily on the show tomorrow. Dave clarified, “[Y]es @Jakeho I will pay up on the bet, Sunday & it will hurt.” Another F&FW source added that Dave will be serving up Clayton’s favorite cheesesteaks from John’s Roast Pork in south Philly.

Briggs: Buenos Bound

October 9, 2009

Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs announced that he will be on holiday this weekend. Yesterday morning, he Tweeted, “Off to Buenos Aires for a week of red wine, red meat and to learn the tango. Go Rockies!”

His “tango” Tweet was sandwiched between two other interesting missives. In the first, he advised one follower that a suggested moniker, “Dave Bigg,” would be more porno than journo. In his latest one, Dave shared a “Marge Simpson Poses for Hef” story with his fans. Between porn names and toon nudity, Dave must have been happy to take Brandi down the middle path to a world of “red wine, red meat,” and the caliente dance.

Dave, have a delightful vacation with Brandi!

Aly: “Strip Wagering?”

October 4, 2009

Co-hosts Dave Briggs’ and Clayton Morris announced an upcoming wager on the outcome of the upcoming series between Dave’s Colorado Rockies and Clayton’s Philadelphia Phillies in the first round of the baseball playoffs. Asking viewers for their input, Dave suggested, “Clearly, it will involve some clothing. Maybe, something embarrassing for Clayton after the Phillies lose.” Clayton agreed, “Something embarrassing.” As a saucy aside, co-anchor Alisyn Camerota asked, “What is this? Strip wagering?”

Later after Aly segued to meteorologist Rick Reichmuth, Rick remarked, “Hey, somebody just Tweeted me and said that the loser has to appear shirtless.” Clayton commented, “Between Dave and I? You don’t want to see that.” Rick replied, “No. I think Aly was included in that, too.” Abashed, Aly tittered: Then, swallowing hard, she asserted, “I’m not playing in this contest.” Not quite ready to end the discussion, Clayton stated, “One of us would have to appear shirtless.” Off camera, Dave declared, “That’s not a good idea.”

Except for certain frisky female fans, F&F viewers would probably tend to concur with Dave. At least, with regard to himself and Clayton. As to Aly, that might be another proposition altogether!
