Laugh Track....Exhibiting Aggressive Behavior
TV personality Michael Strahan appeared on CBS’ “Late Show” last night, and CBS’ David Letterman asked about Strahan’s “Fox NFL Sunday” co-host Terry Bradshaw, “What’s his deal?” Strahan said, “Probably fair, slightly cloudy. He’s a great guy, he’s just a character.” Letterman asked if football was as violent when Strahan played as it is today and Strahan said, “Of course. It’s called controlled aggression. That’s the best way to put it. I don’t think anyone wants to intentionally hurt someone. And if you do and they miss just your game, you're happy. You don’t want them to miss the entire season” (“Late Show,” CBS, 1/7).
NBC’s Jay Leno: “It’s not official but it looks like the four month hockey strike may be over. Of course, if it’s not over and you still want to see a team score only once every fifteen shots you can go watch the Lakers. Sounds like there’s trouble in Lakerland. It’s being reported that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard nearly came to blows after a recent loss to Philadelphia. I don’t think Kobe should worry. If Dwight throws punches like he shoots foul shots, he should be fine. .. According to the New York Times, Lance Armstrong now says he may admit he used performance-enhancing drugs. I guess he realized he’s the only person in the world who still wasn’t sure about it. … Former NFL receiver Chad Johnson is now suing two web sites who posted footage of him having sex with some tattooed woman. Even more embarrassing for Chad: It’s the first highlight reel he’s made in over two years. We don’t know who this woman is, but she goes by the name Ocho Skanko” (“The Tonight Show,” NBC, 1/7).
CBS’ Letterman: “You folks are in a good mood and I know why: The hockey lockout is over. A lot of people say, ‘Dave, I don’t know what that means.’ Well, it means we’ve had no hockey. Had no hockey in October. Had no hockey yesterday. I mean it got so bad that ‘Disney on Ice’ actually allowed fighting. … I knew it would be settled once it was purchased by Al Jazeera” (“Late Show,” CBS, 1/7).
