Play-by-Play with Pat O'Brien: "I don't know why I'm like this," says the former CBS Sports host in a series of sexually explicit voicemail messages making their way around the Internet. "I don't do this for a living. This is like new to me. But I want to [town in Austria] make you crazy. Bye"

Don't change the subject, dusted. There hasn't been a sports story this important since Joe Namath made that incomplete pass to Suzy Kolber on ESPN. The following exchange from a 1997 online chat has new relevance:

Cugraduate: Pat, do you think Marv Albert was given an easy sentence?

Pat O'Brien: No, I think what he went through in public is like a life sentence.

Has it really been seven years since the specifics of Albert's sex life became disturbingly public for no good reason?

Wow ---O'Brian always has said that his dream job would be to return to his home state of South Dakota and run for Govenor---I am sure that this wont help! --

Consider the subject unchanged, but you're going to need a shower after reading the Daily News.

Anyone know if those messages were lifted from Kobe Bryant's voicemail? I wonder if this scandal will put a kibosh on O'Brien's dream to run in the Republican primary for Governor of South Dakota. (Just what America needs, another Republican family-values politico like "The Insider.")

Wow. I thought the delivery of those messages was pretty unnerving, until I realized just who Pat O'Brien is. Somehow the mustache makes the whole thing much, much creepier.

"he was seen groping reporter Shaun Robinson's behind." Is Shaun Robinson a dude? I guess Pat O'Brien is bisexual. Well, Access Hollywood could be the gayest show ever.

No, Shaun Robinson is not a dude. Either that or my trannydar is in desperate need of recalibration.

Tune into Imus for all the dirt on this low-rent, no-wattage scandal.

Imus is so 1997!

He also allegedly offended two African-American employees when he walked into a makeup room and greeted them with, "What's up, my ns!" I fail to grasp how, when every black rap artist and celebrity in the world refers to his friends/family/lawyer/the guy on the corner he just capped as "his niggaz", any black person could find Pat O'Brien saying the same thing anything but hilarious. Come on, for God's sake -- it's the ultimate honky using black slang! Enjoy the incredible stupidity and get over it.

Honky never caught on - and that was a mistake, because it's a great, great name.
