    That was fantastic. I was silently laughing during the whole thing because I'm in a quiet newsroom this morning, though.

    Great fun. But not a recommended read while you're sitting on a conference call, either.

    Unless, of course, you want folks to think you're nuts.

    Sirs, Madames,

    I always thought McNulty and Bill Guerin.


    YHS, etc

    Hehehehe thats all I can say about this post regarding sports stars as members of the wire. Some I must say I agree with others not so much.

    Oakley-Chris is incredible.....

    Daniels-Garnett and Omar-Moss top-notch as well.

    Other thoughts:

    Erv Burrell-Dennis Green.... Fun to listen to, but numbers always seemed a bit cooked up
    Clay Davis-Roger Clemens.... Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit!
    Thomas Carcetti-Roger Goodell... He's gonna clean this shit up!
    Lester Freamon-Trevor Hoffman.... Sage closer.... Been around the block.... Can't throw his fastball anymore, so now he will toss whatever up there to get an out. And he's fucking good at doing that.
    Michael Lee-LaDainian Tomlinson... Stud... but, hope he didn't take off work on the wrong day
    Scott Templeton-Brady Anderson ... You may think you are fooling everyone, but you're not.
