Marilyn Monroe, Jack Nicholson, Elvis Presley, Alfred Hitchock...Jim Gray???: America's favorite TV sports personality gets his long-deserved place along with the greatest of entertainment icons with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

I just threw up in my mouth. Man, the value of real estate in Hollywood is plummeting.

You have got to be f'ing kidding me. When Stephen A Smith gets a star in hollywood, we need to burn the whole place down.

This has to be a joke. Gray must have dirt on whoever is in control of this shit and leveraged his way onto the walk. If I ever go there, I'll have to spit my gum out at the appropriate time. Either that or put a Pete Rose sticker on top of the star.

Like the article suggests, the Hollywood Walk of Fame is kind of a capitalist free for all. You got a check ($15,000) and a name to put on the star? Fit into one of the five categories? Then you too could be one of this year's 20 honorees. If Jim Gray is on the walk then I think they need to tighten up the eligibility. Sheesh.

Does anyone really care about the Hollywood Walk of Fame? Who cares about that political B.S. anyway. Marilyn Monroe was a pill pushing whore and horrible actress, but she made it because she was good at caking the makeup on and reinventing her face...

Alright, does NASCAR count as live performance...or TV contribution...because there have to be $15,000.00 worth of people that want to see names like "Dick Trickle" on a star... Jim Gray, the biggest supernova star of all drab his name is gray.

Marilyn Monroe was a pill pushing whore and horrible actress Oh, she wasn't that bad. God, that's just mean. She ash in your beer, or something?

I can't believe Jim Gray would actualyl get a square, b/c I don't think you can catagorize sports reporters with actors and actresses.
