    Yes, but not for reasons you'd expect....

    He was a regular guest on a few sports talk radio shows in Southern California. He always came across as very nice and knowledgeable. Probably why he was so good at his job as a slick salesman.

    Quick shower, eh?

    Oh, and sleazy don't retire. World won't be less sleazy on Sonny's account until he shuffles off the mortal coil.

    Sonny may be enjoying the sun, but his demon spawn are multiplying through AAU camps from Bangor to Sausalito.

    Shottie, you know, "Sonny's Demon Spawn" would make a great death metal band name.

    Yeah, he usually comes on moaning and hand-wringing about how the entire recruiting process has become a meat market, and players are peddled to the highest bidders without the slightest concern for "education." ::) ::)

    Next: Madonna on the rampant sexualization of modern youth culture, and the negative influence of sluts such as Britney Spears. :D :D

    Complete with a new, ear-screeching cover of "Basketball Jones."

    Two decades too late, he leaves the scene officially.

    He is a bottom feeder who is very responsible for corrupting hoops as we know it. And yet, local TV in Los Angeles has him on as a hoops analyst. Local radio in LA has him on for the same reason. Fucking troll with his lisp and his "look at ME! I'm an AUTHORITY!" way of speaking as he talks about how much he '"cares about the kids."

    Hope he dies.

    You know, there are some people who are celebrities not for having done anything but for being famous. Zsa Zsa Gabor, Paris Hilton, and Sonny Vacarro
