Who would do that?

A sparrow or robin? Hell yes. They're far common than pelicans and they bounce of windows sometimes and stun themselves. Far more likely to have the opportunity to toss one down the disposal.

Pelican is just ridiculous.

And try finding one up here.

Christ.

You certainly don't know indigenous birds.

I'm starting to wonder if CDT knows anything about anything.

I think I've heard him on the radio once.

I agree with CDT. Gus Johnson is a hack. Listen to Dick Stockton or Gary Bender call a game in the '80s and you'll understand.

Enthusiasm is one thing, dissolving into garbledy-gook is another. Gus was literally incoherent at the end of the 2006 UCLA-Gonzaga game. Come on.

You fool. I don't like Gus because I thinks he sucks at what he does.

He's a garrulous jackass.

Awesome.

I was fishing in FLA one time and hooked a pelican by accident. Trying to get that damn bird under control to dislodge the hook is an experience I dont wish on my worst enemy.

So over-rated. A novelty act, really. It became a crutch for him to yell and scream, cause he couldn't keep up with the action verbally. Granted college hoops is a very fast game to call. Football is probably a better speed and backdrop for his shtick.

I do not advocate sticking any type of bird or other animal down a garbage disposal. (except for centipedes, I hate centipedes)

I love Gus Johnson.

Dude is tremendous and is the voice of March Madness in my opinion.

No love for Rise and Fire? He IS why I watch the tournament. That guy has produced more entertainment in 4 weeks of college basketball than this forum has in years.

/Dickhead

Also, he once likened a Chris Johnson TD run to running from the police. That was patently absurd/inappropriate/hilarious.

Gus is outstanding in my mind.

And he's getting much better at announcing boxing and mma. Not sure if not reupping w CBS affects his status w Showtime.

He did a good job trying to inject some life into last nights Pacquiao/Mosley borefest and delivered Jim Lampley levels of brutal honesty about how shot Mosley is during the second half of the fight.
