Links: A Night At The Mic

Fri-Day! Yes!

by Lang Whitaker

Just a quick post before we all bounce for the weekend…

(I’m writing one-sentence paragraphs in order to avoid the dreaded “Related Posts” box on the left.)

(Ryne put that box there to make sure I write longer posts.)


Anyway, on Wednesday night I had another stint doing color commentary on an NBA game, this time my Hawks here in NYC against the Knicks.

Wasn’t trying to be Hubie Brown, was just trying to be funny and have fun with it.

Thanks again to Steve Holman for the opportunity.

Wrote about it a little bit here yesterday on Hawks.com.

And here’s a heavily-edited audio recap of the event.

Hopefully it’ll help you waste 10 minutes before you get to enjoy your weekend.

(Yes, I created a “Jack Benny” tag for this post.)

See you here next week…new SLAM cover(s) drop here middle of next week.

    “You mentioned the Hawks take a lot of threes, they don’t make a lot of them” …

    “That was a nice pass to Herb Williams, unfortunately he’s an assistant coach”…

    “You’re not serious about Jack Benny, are you?”…

    “I know Tony Curtis.”…

    “Al Harrington’s playing like he’s in a contract year”…

    What did the guy in the stands say about Al Harrington? …
