Oh I sensed it going into yesterdays show ( Game On with Bruce Jacobs- 4-7 P.M. 1045 ESPN Radio) that the Knicks, many fans, and even much of the media had the Celtics buried and the Knicks moving onto round 2 of the eastern conference playoffs...
Over the last day or so, current NBA free agent Jason Collins' revelation about being gay has sparked tremendous reaction on a global scale, both positive and negative.

WWE play-by-play announcer, and I use that term loosely, Jim Ross has become the center of an awesome phenomenon recently.
