If you thought this show was over the top before, just wait till you hear this week’s episode! Will takes his shot at being like Shaq in the intro and makes his first attempt at rapping during the intro, which sets the bar high for an unbelievable episode. The Top 5 stories feature a TBNL first: a poker story, and a team that managed to throw a no-hitter and LOSE. The dumbass of the week actually is not a unanimous vote between the three of us this week, because we have got another really good set of nominees, including a commentator who had to explain who she was during her apology for what she did. We take a brief look back at the NBA draft, and then finish up the two minute drill with a Cubs/White Sox fight, Yao Ming’s bed, and some actual good feelings created by ESPN. Enjoy!
