    must get to last line to see why this thread uses MMQ instead of MMQB:


    steve gleason is my hero and makes me feel like a lazy, useless, self-pitying, self-loathing pile of crap... i wasnt sure which SportsJournalists.com category this should be placed so i took this one 'cause i suspect it gets the most traffic. mods move if necessary....

    Apparently the Atlanta ESPN Radio station's morning show "Mayhem in the A.M." ran a segment where the hosts "interviewed" Gleason by having "Gleason" answer questions in a computer-generated voice (think: Stephen Hawking).

    Haven't seen any links to the audio. Radio host openings in Atlanta in 3 ... 2 ... 1.

    It's in poor taste, but similar bits about Stephen Hawking are everywhere and nobody's freaking out over that. I'm not sure there's much of a difference.

    Well, these guys work (or worked) for the station that is (for now) the Falcons' flagship station. This is infinitely worse that "a tremendous amount of sex."

    (and not surprising... would stumble across the TV simulcast every once in a while... rockheads.)

    I've long been a Gleason fan. Doesn't hurt that we went to WSU at the same time. How he's faced ALS head-on has been incredible, to say the least. This column is certainly proof of that.
    Trivia tidbit of the day: For years when the WSU flags waved on ESPN College GameDay, there was Ol' Crimson and there was Whitey, a white flag with a crimson Coug logo. Team Gleason's motto is "No White Flags," so last year Whitey was retired and replaced with a grey flag.
