On Monday, Moose and Maggie’s Mystery Guest presented by Jersey Mike’s brought a little pugilistic subterfuge to the 1 p.m. hour on WFAN.

Following a lengthy discussion with the Daily News’ Patrick Leonard and Giants defensive back DeAndre Baker’s attorney, Patrick Patel, about Baker’s recent legal issues, the mystery guest quipped that, “I don’t think I’ll need to be deposed anytime soon after that.”

He then admitted he was a broadcaster who had done football, basketball, and a little studio hosting, and that he was calling from the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. Maggie admitted she didn’t know where that was, and after Moose incorrectly guessed Gus Johnson before time to guess ran out, the guest identified himself as…

Brian Custer!

Yes, it was FOX Sports and Showtime Championship Boxing commentator Custer who joined Moose and Maggie to kick off their final hour, with Moose & Maggie not chiding him for mentioning boxing, saying it was reminiscent of when Rasheed Wallace said he played for the Knicks in his mystery guest spot.

Of course, Custer also had a wonderful explanation for why he was calling in from the Coast Guard Academy, which is in New London, Connecticut.

“My nephew just got sworn into the Coast Guard Academy, so I had to come up and see him before they took him off,” Custer said. “It was emotional! I felt like I was losing my own son when they took him away! But it was great, I’m just so happy that he went to serve his country.”

Custer talked about a number of topics, from his time covering the BIG3 basketball league as well as health issues in sports and boxing, but the big focus was what Maggie termed as “the circus” surrounding the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight that Custer covered for Showtime.

“Two of the biggest personalities in combat sports came together and put something together that we might not ever see again, but the behind the scenes was like nothing I’ve ever seen either,” Custer said.
