    Love Hot Rod.

    Robinson, leave the math alone. You can't do it. And you managed to find another way to kiss up to Larry Miller. How amazing. Otherwise I like Hot Rod. He is a positive symbol for the overrated Jazz team.

    average game is 3 hour x 4000 games divided by 24 hours That is 500 days, not quite 112 years. Even if every NBA game was played in a row you would come up with the 40 years of games Hot Rod has been doing this you would still be less than 20 years. 112 years would be more than 100,000 games.

    I have enjoyed Hot Rod's broad casts over the years and the passion he puts into the games. He doesn't get as upset at the refs or when the team is tanking it as he used to, but he loves being a broadcaster. As he gets older he may not be as sharp but it doesn't matter he is hot rod, he is the Jazz.

    I think it goes something like this:
    A gentle push a mild arch and the cow hide globes hits home.

  • 112 years?

    You lost me on that one, Doug. Hot Rod is only 75 years old. 112 months maybe, but certainly not years.
