Chronicles Of Crotty #145: Hey Ya

HOST

Rey Moralde (@TheNoLookPass): Whaddup, shawty? Is that ATL talk?

VISITORS

From L to R:
Robby Kalland (@RKalland) writes for Hawks.Com.
Bo Churney (@BoChurney) writes for HawksHoop.Com.
Cole Patty (@ColePatty) writes for HawksHoop.Com.

That’s actually Robby’s picture. He’s been in television as of late. Bo might actually really be Simba and wears an Atlanta Braves hat. And Cole is secretly Jesse McCartney.

In any case, we ended up talking for a couple of hours. However, the first 40 minutes of the conversation ended up being lost because of a botched recording. So we picked up where we left off and just talked away about anything and everything. And, yes, we do end up talking about basketball. Including the Hawks.

MENU
A. We lament on our loss of the 40-minute recording we had earlier in the day.
B. Las Vegas stories.
C. Go-to karaoke songs.
D. Bad halftime shows.
E. We somehow ended up talking about the Bucks before talking about the Hawks.
F. March Madness real-time reaction.
G. Robby impersonates the Macho Man. Also, Robby has never heard of the Macho Man rap album.
