Okay, not bad. But to Scully, this was big news. “Oh, wait a minute, never mind the numbers,” the legendary announcer said. “We’ve got something going here. More fun than the game right now … yessir! A star is born.”

One can only imagine what he would have made of this kid:

This former editor and part-time writer at The Post is now happy to prove that if you combine 'blowhard' and 'blaggard,' you get 'blogger.'
