Program note – The December 11th untelevised NFL pregame show starring myself and Marv Levy will feature us rebuilding the set using Howie long’s square-ass head as a level. Our in-studio guests will be the Packers offensive line. We’re going to stomp on them to see if it’s really as fun as Ndamukong Suh made it look.
