The Bucco-Sucko list is great entertainment. "Brant Brown" made me choke on my dinner. As did seeing Chad Hermansen's lifetime batting average was only .195

Glad to see someone else take ESPN to task for CLUTTERING UP AND WHORING OUT THE SPORTS UNIVERSE.

And this Fresh Prince bit is very strange and utterly hilarious.
