Squawking with Wall St.'s big brains about Fed
What's a Mooncusser?
Steve Liesman is Squawk's official economic guru (like for over 10 years now)! But he's also the show's official fly fisherman. We let him post his pictures here from time to time (it keeps him happy).
But lately he hasn't been doing much fishing. He's been too busy with the "Mooncussers." Yes that's the name of one of his bands. So now I also have to plug his gigs to keep him happy.
So here we go…
This Saturday, "Steve Liesman and the Mooncussers" (nice name) head back to one of their favorite places to usher in the fall. It will be an eclectic, acoustic and electric evening at MTK Tavern in Mt. Kisco, N.Y., with the Mooncussers on a double bill with The Shaves. Music starts at 9. Food is great. Mooncussers open, followed by The Shaves and then a third set with everyone.

So in place of Liesman's usual contribution to our fish stories, we'll give ya a look at another Squawker's fish pics. This one courtesy of 7 a.m. ET "Squawk Box" producer Matt Greco (follow him at @MGreco27).
Last weekend, Matt had "an epic day" of porgy and fluke fishing. He captains the 17 foot "4-Reel" out of Raritan Bay (between New York and New Jersey). She's a mighty fine vessel and a Superstorm Sandy survivor!
Joe and Becky love to play the word jumble in the paper (seven years running after the show when they're not too busy or somebody's off). Joe won three times to Becky's one. Joe's bonus jumbled word of the week is FCEADH. Becky's is ZBREYE.

It's going to be a quiet week on the economic front. Things really don't get going until Wednesday with August Durable Goods. Thursday brings weekly Jobless Claims for the week ending Sept. 21 and the third estimate of second-quarter gross domestic product. Friday, we get August Personal Income and Spending reports. It's all scheduled for 8:30 a.m. ET each day.
