Courtesy Lou (and because he's burying the Mariners in their most recent playoff appearence).

During the 3rd quarter of tonight's Knick game, the broadcast came out of a commercial with Al Trautwig announcing he was about to interview one of the most famous soccer players in the world. The spectator turned out to be a delightfully incomprehensible Wayne Rooney, who was attending his first NBA game. As the Knicks were, naturally, down twenty points, he compared the booing he'd been hearing to the booing of his own crazed fans, and his tangled muttering was very Mickey O'Neil.
What made this little minute spot memorable, and blog worthy, was the fact that the worthless, infantile Jimmy Fallon was clearly visible the whole time, sitting a few seats from Rooney. Plainly Fallon did not recognize Rooney, and he grew hilariously irritated at being ignored over the course of the proceedings. It made for a lovely little scene.

Just when it's appropriate to provide a Yankee David Justice pic, it won't let me.

It's completely irrelevant and a low brand of humor, but sometimes it's necessary.

Especially when referencing Jimmy Fallon in ANY light.
