So I welcome him to the studio, tell him what the game plan is going to be for the show, what we'd like to talk about, ask him if there's anything he wants to talk about, the usual. So then I take him to the actual set, get his mike on, and tell him to just sit tight and we'll get started in a few minutes.

So I go back to the control room to get ready for the show. Now, the set has basically life size cut-outs of different DC area sports personalities. One of them is Gary Williams.

So I'm in the control room and we have the cameras and overhead mikes on. No one is there but Francis. Suddenly he gets up, walks up to the Williams cut out and starts getting in its face, then he starts saying (and I'm only slightly exaggerating) "What? What? You wanna go? Wanna do this? what?" then he steps back and then steps right back up with his fist cocked "Yeah motherfucker. What!" "Man, fuck you, you piece of shit!. Fuck you. I'm about to count my money. You ain't shit" Then he starts kicking the damn thing!

All of us just stood there stunned. Then he stopped and walked back to his seat and we got started a few minutes later. None of us dared mention anything we saw to him.
That's pretty insane...but not surprising.

Re: Let's go Terps

Sounds about right. Seems like more often than not athleticism and intelligence have an inverse relationship.

I think Steve Francis was always about the money. Once he got his huge NBA payday he pretty much vanished.

No, I mean actual shit talking, like when it gets past sportsmanship.

Joakim HAS to be a nice guy to get ladies...his looks won't get him very far.

It was so funny watching him turn the ball over with the game on the line and then cry for a foul. LOL.

Go Hoyas tonight!

Down by 9 at the Half.

We need a nice run out the gates and hopefully we'll get a few more of these....

Thankfully I never have to see that again. I can't stand that dude. That was a great game though. What a tournament so far.
