I'm not going to like Bruce Jacobs

It took not even 30 seconds for me to make up my mind about Bruce Jacobs, who is replacing the fired Brian Sinkoff from 3-7 p.m. on WTMM-FM (104.5).

I'm not going to like Jacobs and his "Game On" show, not after he dissed my hometown of Philadelphia shortly after the Yankees-Twins game ended Monday afternoon, saying he hates everything about it.

Care to explain why you don't like Philadelphia, other than the fact you are a Long Island native? What did my city do to you? What, are you upset that Cliff Lee (Phillies) and Nnamdi Asomugha (Eagles) spurned New York teams, especially your beloved Jets?

Jacobs comes off as arrogant. That may work in bigger markets like Phoenix, where Jacobs once worked, or on a national stage like his FOX Sports Radio gig. But Capital Region listeners aren't going to put up with it.

WTMM program director Brian Noe said it was a "business decision" that Sinkoff and "Sound-Off with Sinkoff" produced Alan Fish were let go. Well, I will predict right now, it will be a poor business decision.

Game On, Bruce Jacobs.
