Jim sent along the following: I know its little but kind of funny….during a fould in the 3rd quarter Shaq fell on top of Kendrick Perkins while they fighting for a rebound and the announcer, Jeff Van Gundy, said “that looked like some WWE Monday Night Raw right there” -kind of funny he knew the name exactly…is he a fan? lol.

Amy sent along the following: I just happened to be watching the Phillies vs Millwalkie Brewers game today and they were talking to Bob Uecker. I was surprised that he said he was out because he had heart sugery, So I went looking for info on it and found this. I figure it was wrestling related due to him being inducted in the WWE HOF in March.

On April 27, 2010, Bob Uecker announced that he was going to miss 10-12 weeks of the 2010 baseball season because of heart surgery. His aortic valve and a portion of his aortic root were successfully replaced four days later.
