David Letterman is mad about Dog

Tuesday's appearance by Chris Russo on "Late Show with David Letterman" was among the more entertaining (and lengthy) for Mr. Mad Dog, I thought. (His lead-in was Helen Hunt.)

There were the usual goofy, awkward moments, and at times Dave seemed genuinely afraid as Chris yelled at him and waved his arms. (Here is some video from the event.)

What I don't get is how Dave can justify extremely local sports talk on a national, non-sports talk show. Even Dog seemed confused when Dave asked about the Mets' and Yankees' radio play-by-play men.

Did anyone in Boise have any idea what they were talking about regarding Howie Rose and John Sterling? Dave even threw in a John Minko reference!

Dave has been on a sports bender of late. Danica Patrick is scheduled for Wednesday and Brett Favre for Thursday.

Please give me a call so I can ask you about all this, Mr. Letterman. I have been watching your show since the month before Danica was born.
