    i gotta see this….i can imagine that it will be like the little john interview skit on chappelle’s show…..

  • DV8

    *crosses fingers hoping Wayne doesnt embarrass hiphop and the black community*

    I wasnt mad at him on ESPN, atleast he wasnt drunk or high (so it seemed) and he proved Skip wrong with that Cardinals/ Panthers pick

    • TheRefriedMexican

      HE WAS AS CHARASMATIC AS A DOOR KNOB ON ESPN! AND THATS BEING KIND! AND PLEASE DON’T TELL ME WAYNE PICKED THE CARDINALS BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT KNOWLEDGE OF THE NFL. HE PROBABLY PICKED THEM CAUSE HE LIKES THE TEAM COLORS!

        I’m regurgitating this (my)opinion somewhat but…

        During the playoffs, ALL the “birdies” got knocked the fk out! First the Ravens, then the Eagles.

        There’s a whole lotta fried wings, breasts and drumsticks being served up somewhere!

        STEELERS vs. cardinals…

        One more bird left to go into the hot grease after some STEEL knock the feathers off!!

        Come on, you know where my $$$ at…

      • DV8

        touche…but after reading some of his ESPN blogs im pretty sure he has some knowledge of whats going on in the world of sports.

  • Emperor Doom

    I would love to see this. Oh not because I’m a wayne fan but he will probably mumble and stumble over his words again and make himself look ignorant.
