We mustn't forget the 4th feature of a cramped studio in Bristol, when calling a basketball tournament which is in Las Vegas.

The only surprise is that the WWL didn't think of this years before.

But good God, one of the top ten toys??? What the hell finished eleventh -- a pointed stick?

All things considered, that's not a bad deal.

Good idea... ESPN can use this toy to discover the next generation of Stu Scott.

I want the Steve Berthiaume Edition, complete with stolen catchphrases and annoying inflection.

It's like the toy back in the '70s and '80s called Mr. Microphone. You could broadcast thru a radio speaker. There was a cheesy commercial of some guys riding in a convertible with a girl coming out of a store, they grab the mic and say, "Hey, good looking!"

You mean this, Alan?
That thing kicked ass, unless you were pretending to be stuck in a well.

I had a Mr. Microphone when I was like three or four! That was an awesome toy. I think Mike Tirico should give the tips or Dan Shulman seeing as they're the two best the WWL employs. Brad Nessler's not bad either.
