In my quest to turn as many sports fans onto Dan LeBatard's (PTI part time host and columnist for the Miami Herald) radio show, I present my final case:
In an ongoing 'sketch', the producer of the show, Marc Hochman, does interviews for other radio stations. This started with random radio stations calling their station (flagship for Miami Heat) for "insiders" to make cameos on their own stations and no one wanting to fulfill these requests. In response, Marc Hackman was created. The first was a station in Edmonton - Cleveland, Boise and Chicago soon followed. As his alter ego, Marc Hackman's main goal is to be the guest that Dan LeBatard hates - speaks in old cliches, has no idea what he's talking about and throws in references that the host doesn't understand or, in some cases, even listens to.
In this example, Marc Hackman, is called upon to talk about Tate Forcier's commitment to Univ of Miami instead of Washington. Mark Hochman had no idea who Tate Forcier was a day earlier but, of course, made the call.
