In a segment on David Letterman’s late night show on 10/14/09, Mad Dog was talking about the Yankees and their payroll and that in the 1990s it was not as “exuberant” as it is now.

Letterman calls him out on it: “I think instead of exuberant, perhaps exorbitant.”  To which Dog says, “I don’t get these words…”

Starts around the 3:25 mark.

While discussing the NBA Labor discussion situation on Wednesday’s show, Mad Dog talked about the guy who would be the second highest-paid player in the league next season, Rashard Lewis.  In true fashion, he called him “Rasheed Lewis”.

Mad Dog made a mash-up: "Rasheed Lewis"

Great article on Rashard on ESPN.com.

Also, while looking up some stuff on Rashard, saw a gossip item about him and LeBron James that I hadn’t heard.  Won’t publish it but you can search it.

while talking about the fluid situation of his morning show, Chris remarked that it is truly missing former host Gary Williams, who left for a golf morning show with Erik Kuselias. Called him Erik Markakis, classic butcher mashup with Nick Markakis.

So you think you can dance?
