How Did He Do?

Publicity 101

We have found the only person in the universe to ever say a bad word about legendary Dodgers announcer, Vin Scully. Of course that person, former Los Angeles catcher Mike Piazza, has a book to promote and sell, so it's a shrewd move on his part.

Local News Video Of The Day

I've said it a million times and I'll say again: God bless local news.

Video Of The Day

This morning's Howard Stern Show replayed the infamous "Gary Love Tapes," which very well may be the greatest event in the history of the show. I sent a couple of tweets about it, and one of my followers, @cjf125, suggested I post the video in Hot Clicks. Since it is Valentine's Day, it makes sense to relive the romantic outpouring from Baba Booey (Warning: This is from the Howard Stern show. There is strong language throughout the video.)
