Steven mentions that his sister Hayley was giving the coach a Rod Carew in the parking lot. Rod Carew was a Major League Baseball player for the Minnesota Twins and California Angels in the 1970s and 1980s. In addition to being the only major leaguer to ever be born in a train, he was one of the most prolific hitters of his generation. It should be noted that Steve is using R"od Carew" as rhyming slang for "screw".
I'd rather have Van Pelt and some other young-ish guy team-ed up, since a) Tirico is too bland and b) too busy anyway. Not that it matters, since I would rather like to WFAN or LeBatard during their time slot.
