Who is Rome mocking when he yells this, talking about bad calls and why it's good he takes so few of them? JT The Brick?  He's done it twice in the past few days..

i met him at a bar a few years ago.

he was charging $10 to take a poloroid with him.
that was about $3 too much for me.

Lee Hamilton, an old sports talk guy who was local in San Diego at the same time Rome was there.  He was known as Hacksaw, so (sometimes) Quacksaw (racks for a glossary term).

Let's not forget he is the Butterknife too.  I WANT TO TALK SPORTS WITH YOU......  DODGERS, LAKERS, USC, KINGS, ANGELS fans....  DO YOU HAVE A PULSE?

Here is the thing though - Rome has always (and rightfully) ripped on the "CALLS, CALLS, CALLS" hosting style.  However, more bad calls at this point might be an improvement over crappy hosting and KB.

For the OP, anytime a "glorious Saturday" or the "host without a local affiliate" is referenced, that would also be about Ye Olde Butterknife.

Thanks. I also find his ripping of "CALLS, CALLS, CALLS" to be ironic considering a lot of the recent guest hosts do exactly that.

But yeah, I'd rather hear a few more calls than book-pimping interviews, Jersey Shore takes and slurping of KB too.

Well, look on the bright side....Kobe hit a game winner tonight....Rome will probably "burn" on that for at least two segments tomorrow!  ;)
