The Best of Raft so far:

"And take the tuba with you!"

"The kiss is refreshing."

And Vern after a promo for Big Bang Theory:

"And speaking of big bangs, how about what was going on in the rebounding egde?"

I woke up with a few minutes to go and had the TV on...

And in my blog comment, I threw several old motown song lyrics into the mess.

Not related to this, but ESPN is currently showing a piece on Urban Meyer and Tim Tebow on Sportscenter. It's freakin' March, why the hell do we need to start the love fest now??

It's clear Steve that ESPN is just taking Thom Brennaman's advice. Those people who set up the piece spent more than 15-20 minutes with Tebow, and therefore, they are better people for it.
