TC here and Matt Murray hit me up first telling me about the passing of New Jersey native and legendary Defensive Tackle Tony Siragusa. Matt and “The Goose” had a special connection back in DHA history.

Back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s Tony was Matt’s “Co-Host” for WDHA’s Monday Night Football broadcasts from Tiff’s Locations in Morris Plains, Pine Brook and Union. What a great and WILD time those broadcasts were! Can you imagine…..I’m in charge trying to control Matt AND THE GOOSE? No way! He then became an NFL Games Broadcaster from 2003-2015 and was absolutely amazing…..

Tony was born in Kenilworth and was an NFL Defensive Tackle who spent 12 seasons with the  Indianapolis Colts  and the Baltimore Ravens.

A super fun guy we always had a blast with him behind the mic. TMZ reported his death earlier with no further details….Matt Murray posted-  “This one is hard to take…still don’t truly believe it, But those who remember when I would do the Monday night football broadcast from his restaurants “Tiffany’s” on WDHA he was a fun guy. Great football player and great sense of humor… haven’t seen him in years, but when I would run into him always bought me a drink and would bust my balls about a girl I dated in his neighborhood. And this guy was as Jersey as you get. RIP Goose” 

I ran into him a few times at the shore and he always remembered his days behind the mic with Matt. What a legend.

Wonderful Football and WDHA memories indeed ……..A NJ Legend……Rest Easy Tony
