His beloved New York Yankees may not have won on Monday night but even the loss was likely not enough to dampen Howell resident Joe Giglio's spirits.
WFAN, one of the most popular sports radio stations in the Tri-State area, announced that Giglio had won its third Fantasy Phenom contest, beating out a field of four other sports fans and aspiring broadcasters.
In an announcement on its website WFAN (660 AM) announced that Giglio will host a weekly radio show on WFAN starting in the fall.
"We've been very pleased with our first two winners and look forward to Joe doing a great job this time around," WFAN operations manager and CBS Radio New York vice president of programming Mark Chernoff said in the statement.
Having graduated from DeSales University in 2008 with a degree in sports management, Giglio currently works as a freelance sports writer.
The final part of the competition was an on-air interview at Bar A in Lake Como and the decision on who got the contract was up to the listening audience. The voting closed on Monday before Giglio was announced as the winner.
