I really don't see what the big deal is.

I'm a regular podcast listener, and he's been talking about the billboards (and more) for the last week. It wasn't until the end of Wednesday's show that he learned that the ESPN execs didn't know about it (which is ridiculous, since he'd been *talking about it on ESPN radio for the last week*.

I've tried many times to listen to his show, but it's just the worst thing ever if you want to listen to sports radio. Be happy if this means they dump him.

The billboards look like something your barely literate Uncle shares on Facebook. He even used Comic Sans MS, for Christ's sake.

In a perfect world, he would have been fired for being so lame and not funny.

I would think that was an intentional shot at Dan Gilbert (cnn.com).

Regular podcast listener here too. I'm normally all for the show's hijinx. Normal sports radio is pretty unbearable to me once I got turned onto Le Batard's show.

But I don't think Dan could have been more insincere with the whole I-don't-really-care-I'm-just-doing-this-for-laughs explanation for this stunt. Why is he denying the butthurt? It's okay, he's a Heat fan. We'd all understand if he'd just be honest about it.

And speaking of insincere, how long has Dan said he doesn't care if he gets fired? If that's the case why did he call off the rest of hus stunts after ESPN slapped him on the wrist?

Can't wait until the radio show is back on the air. I'm eager to hear how they talk about the suspension.

Easily the best of the three ICE AGE movies. All the regulars return, plus a few new ones. Not going to give you the synopsis, since if you've seen the trailer, you know it already. It's hilarious and family friendly. So, go see it.
