:10 There’s a first time for everything so here we go. I’ve never started the countdown with a Locker Room inductee, but this lady deserves it. Ms. Racele Watson is living up in the Hill District and raising her sons, one of whom is “Denier.” Denier is holding it down at Central Catholic High School. (You know the school Penn Hills kicks around like a rented mule?) Anyway, Racele, you, Denier and whatever the other kid’s name is (oops my bad), you’re all “In the Locker Room!”
:09 I don’t know why you’re all having such a hard time understanding what’s going on with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o and this way off the hook story about a girlfriend that really doesn’t exist. The—boy’s —a—freak! Ya know it and I know it and don’t act like you don’t recognize it. Every one of you has a cousin just like him that talks to people that ain’t there every day. Yes you do… yes you do… yes—you—do!!!
:08 I’m telling you right now “Kobe” and the Lakers will beat Lebron and the Heat Thursday night, so by the time you read this, you will have missed your chance to take it to the bank.
:07 New year, same problems. Please “instruct” your young African-American men to pull their pants up. I mean, come on, this is getting to be just stupid and while you’re at it, can you start getting our “young ladies” to clean up their language. Some of these girls’ attitudes and the words coming out of their mouths make some of these boys look like angels!
:06 Yeah, hockey is back. No, really, I am excited and happy. No, I really am. Doesn’t mean I know any more about it. No shut-up about it. Go Pens!
:05 Want to be reminded of some good old school music? Pull out your Stephanie Mills classics. Man, that woman had pipes on her… I mean, she really did and while up in the flash-back machine, if anybody out there has any of the “Sinbad Summer Jamz” tapes or CD’s, please call me so I can get a copy. Oh, don’t worry, I’ll pay for it mmmaaannn!!
:04 For my money, the NFL Rookie of the Year is not Andrew Luck or RGIII, but it’s Russell Wilson of the Seahawks. Oh, by the way, have you heard… he’s a brother.
:03 All I can tell ya is this… If you’re Serena Williams’ boyfriend and she says it’s time to go… you best be about the business of going… and right now! Did you see the arms on that woman? That said, she’s bad, and I mean in a good way!
:02 Why was the ESPN sports commentator making such a big deal about Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. “Johnny Football” McCarron? Because—she—is—fine, that’s why! Brent’s old, but he ain’t dead.
:01 At the Buzzer, 2013 Style. Here we Go!
