Funny you should mention Le Betard, Slap. He has a new, local drivetime talk radio show in Miami and he has had a staggering list of A-list guests on his show that would put Jim Rome's athlete interview list to shame. Kissing ass, particularly Ricky Williams', has helped that dude advance his career so much it's sickening.
