Win One For The Hopper!

Listening to ESPN 850 WKNR, you’ve probably heard about a competition going on between myself and Will Burge. We’re racing to see who can raise $1,000 for the Special Olympics. (You can donate for me here).

Will's favorite glasses

If I win, you’ll get an Afternoon R&R featuring Kenny Roda in a Cleveland Browns jersey(!), with Michael Reghi donning a Miami Heat jersey. If Will Burge wins, you’ll get a Really Big Show featuring Rizz in Steelers gear and Hammer in a Buckeye jersey. The loser between Will and I will also have to put on the black and gold.

There is no part of me that wants to wear the gear of a team that has guys like Roethlisberger and Mendenhall in the backfield! With this in mind, I’ve come up with 10 reasons why you should donate to me instead of Will Burge:

#10: Will Burge doesn’t think the Hangover is funny

As Phil, Stu, and Alan are getting tazed, Will sat there, stonefaced, mumbling under his breath, “That is so cruel.”

#9: He doesn’t want to see Pacquaio-Mayweather

The way Will sees it, Pacquaio needs to just focus on his singing career instead.

#8: He convinced Terrelle Pryor to sell the gold pants

Like he told TP, “Gold pants went out with MC Hammer. And Hello Kitty tattoos are awesome!”

#7: For years, Will Burge has been pushing for Dinner with a Legend: John Elway

Will and Hammer can be found every Friday night on W. 6th reliving the drive and toasting #7.

#6: Will does not have Indians fever

Will Burge has been heard off the record saying he doesn’t believe in anything, especially not Wahoo! Baseball.

#5: He thinks Lebron should’ve left Cleveland

The proof is in the pudding!

#4: He thinks Chris Fedor should be on the cover of Madden

According to Will, Chris is more in tune with how he feels about Cleveland, so he wants Negative Ned to represent him.

#3: He wants the Browns to tank every season until 2018

“Why go for a Super Bowl now? If we wait until 2018, David Sills V is available.”

#2: Kenny Roda wears his Steelers gear to work

When I walk into work on Monday, I see Roda in his Steelers Super Bowl champs shirt. Not an ideal work environment at ESPN Cleveland for yours truly. But a picture of Roda rocking the orange and brown will bring joy for years to come!

#1: Will knew where Bin Laden was hiding

Interesting fact about Will Burge: He has been the delivery boy for Osama Bin Laden’s videos for the last 10 years, and was the courier that mistakenly led the U.S. to him.

In all seriousness this is a great cause and I’ve love for you to donate to either side. The most important thing is that the Special Olympics win. But I don’t want to wear any damn Steeler gear, so please send to me!
