:10 Don’t look now boys and girls, but your L.A. Lakers are now tied for the 8th playoff spot in the Western Conference and the party is just getting started.
:09 Speaking of the Lakers, and I was, I guess you haters know that Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant is averaging 36 points a game in their last seven. What…huh…say what…I can’t hear ya Zik. Can’t hear ya Fred Crawford. Can’t hear ya dad…Can somebody please turn up the volume. I can’t hear nobody!
:08 Here’s your Steelers’ death march . . . James Harrison—GONE…Mike Wallace—GONE, Rashard Mendenhall – GONE…Willie Colon—SOON TO BE GONE…Chris Rainey—LONG GONE…Super Bowl Hopes—GONE—GONE—GONE !
:07 I know I joke about the Penguins, but for real—for real, they’re playing off the charts and “Sid the Kid” is simply the greatest player in the world. And let’s face it, you win five in a row in the National Hockey League that’s serious.
:06 Had the pleasure of sharing the stage with a living legend the other night. The great Bruno Sammartino. Now for you real back in the day wrestling fans, you know this man was the real deal. All you need to know is at 6 feet and 275 pounds, he lifted a 610 pound man “over his head” and threw him out of the ring…“over the ropes.” And the icing on the cake…sold out Madison Square Garden 45 times! C’mon man!!! (Yeah we’re talking about Haystack Calhoun)
:05 Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go… No, no, no, not gonna happen!
:04 Hey, when do the Pirates start playing???
