Chris Bosh--Entertaining? Insane? Neither?

Remember the other day when the Timberwolves were getting destroyed by the Toronto Raptors? Me neither. Regardless, the broadcast team of Tom Hanneman and Jim Peterson took the ass-kicking as a chance to discuss items tangentially related to basketball.

That is a time-honored tradition for games that are going horribly awry for the home side, and I have no problem with it (though, in the midst of this lost, and sometimes very depressing season, one can't help but what wonder how nice it would be to have Kevin Harlan (before he done got big) calling the games again.

Anyway, Jim and Tom were chatting, and Tom mentioned Chris Bosh's side "business" of CBTV, where he produces YouTube videos for those willing to search for Chris Bosh. Tom said some of the stuff was quite funny. Jim expressed interest in looking them up. Apparently, they may be quite the thing in Toronto. I'll give Bosh credit for doing these, and for apparently not getting much outside help, and for being willing to appear to be just a really tall web-nerd. Otherwise, I am not sure what to say. Enjoy, as Chris Bosh portrays himself as a used car salesman looking to get Chris Bosh into the All Star Game. It's fairly Charlie Kaufman-esque in concept, if not execution.

This is old news.

Why don't you post something on the cutting edge, such as an orangutan and a sumo wrestler having a tug o' war?

I was wondering if you were going to look this up or not, 'cause I couldn't be bothered/totally forgot after the game. Thank God for you, Big Blue Monkey!

Hanny and Pete made it sound considerably more amusing than it turned out to be. Color me shocked.
