Norm Donald, Norm Macdonald, Espn discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I'm not really sure around the time streetfighter but maybe got some sort of bundle deal when he got all the way up to ten grams. So I don't know what the rights fees situation is on this, Mike. So help me out because it is from the Espy. So I'm going to assume that we own the sound, but I don't want the sound from the Espy's last night. I want the sound from when the Espy's changed most dramatically. When norm Donald went up there and did stand up and he did it in a way that insulted the athletes and the athletes in the crowd, the stars of their times gots were not having the norm MacDonald roast jokes. There was a lot of self seriousness in the room. They certainly weren't having the OJ Simpson jokes. And so I'd like to go back to that time because I didn't watch last night. That is a hard hard thing to pull off what ESPN does every year that big show where you get all of these athletes to come in and Denka Patrick was the host had some she. She had some jokes that were risque more risque then. ESPN normally goes into some of these areas that give themselves permission on a drinking night on a celebration night, but can we get that Norman Donald sound Mike for the people who don't remember the Espy's changed forever. When norm McDonald hosted them because he insulted the athletes and that's not what ESPN Dutt's right for the most part where critical of athlete behavior, but we're not roasting athlete, how great of these row spin on comedy central Charlie Sheen and Bruce Willis, Bruce? Well, it's announced at the end of it the the other day that diehard is not a Christmas movie. Instead at the end of his celebrity rose, he does not get to decide that now it does not. We decided it made him the decider on that. I don't know Demi Moore was a part of that roast with Bruce Willis that's fought and she said die hard. One doing three. They were great because they were married at the time, the rest flopped because they weren't married. I mean, it was good. You're right, Jimmy. Great. If we could do like celebrity sports rose, that'd be. Great athlete rose. ESPN has an arid yet the Bruce Willis roast spoiler alert. What about the norm? Donald sound that aired right. That aired once upon a time, I don't feel like you have to ask anybody's permission. It's our property, right? Don't we get to grandfather in all previous ESPN sound now explain to me how this world more complicated in that also just the time it takes to roll on it also their stat. Okay, but hold on m. i. dabbling in dangerous subject matter does. Does the Bristol campus still have scars from whatever it was fifteen years ago because of what norm Donald did during his opening monologue of the Espy's is there, is there some sort of scab? I'm tearing off here that I don't know about. Yes. Well, now you know about it, so you're gonna tear it off anyway. All right, fine. Look it up on the internet norm Donald's all over the place. We can't play for you because we're scared of our own shadow. But normally Donald did this thing where it's called comedy and he did it fifteen years ago and back then it was dangerous. And Ken Griffey got mad and we stopped doing comedy that way. Better. I'm gonna try to find it. On it's there for history. What are we gonna do hide it, which you're in Haydn sort of. Okay. So nobody can see it. It was great. Is it still on the internet? I mean, do we scrub it Disney rain down global security. The web of navy seals came down and scrubbed it from the internet. I'm gonna check. Like just off the gate, he works blue because the Monica Lewinsky stuff was going on. It comes out of the box, comes out of the box working blue, but that's not the part that I remember the part that I remember norm Donald being norm, Don on the way that made everyone feel really awkward and stare at each other. And that's what norm Donald did..

Coming up next
