BILL NEAL

:10—Okay, let’s get right to it. Since he had the onions to step up, let’s do Braddock Roy’s top ten male athletes of all time. You got mine last week. Here’s Roy’s: No. 1, Pele; No. 2, Wilt “The Stilt” Chamberlain; No. 3, Jim Brown; No. 4, LeBron James; No. 5, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; No. 6, Bill Russell; No. 7, Willie Mays; No. 8, Carl Lewis; No. 9, Babe Ruth; and No. 10, Satchel Paige. Thanks for your time in “Overtime,” Braddock Roy!

:09—Now boys and girls, here’s why those who can play—play, and those who can’t—watch from the sidelines. Braddock Roy, how can you possibly have a greatest all-time list without Michael Jeffrey Jordan? You’ve got LeBron (almost swept) James and he hasn’t beaten Jordan’s six rings yet, let alone greatest all-time Pele, greatest soccer player all-time…hardly greatest athlete Top 10. Hey, love my “Negro players,” but Satchel Paige…all-time greatest? C’mon man! And you have a list…I don’t care if it’s a shopping list, without Muhammad Ali—“The Greatest of All-Time”…are you outside your mind!?!?!

:08—I’ve been telling ya since March, and now the execs want to say it (maybe they’re reading “Overtime”). You cannot —will not—should not win Major League baseball games without Major League pitching, and especially in the 8th and 9th innings. And you see that’s where the Pirates keep coming in short.

:07—Look, you so busy with Whitney and Aretha and Gladys and Anita and Diana and all them, you forgot about this. Do you remember how hard you partied to this…“I Know You Got a Chick on the Side”… “I’m So Excited”…and “Yes We Can-Can.” That’s right, the Pointer Sisters. But don’t take my word for it. Just put it on and do this, play “Chick on the Side” from the beginning… that three-minute intro, and see what happens. I know. You’re welcome!

:06—Floyd Mayweather will fight Conor McGregor and will win easily, but you can’t blame him. Fighters fight, and you’re going to pay to see it…just in case McGregor gets lucky, yes you will, yes, you will!
