BOB BARKER COMES ON DOWN TO FIGHT FOR ESPN AIRTIME: Now that he’s faced his final Showcase Showdown, what’s Bob Barker to do? Well, JOSSIP has an inside tip that BB’s next TV conquest is ESPN’s SportsCenter:
Some of the highlights from Barker’s “audition tape” for the Boys in Bristol:
“Before anyone had heard of Michael Jordan, they were calling me ‘Air Barker’.”
“I would fit in with the ESPN staff. I am inadequate.”
“…the enemy heard that I was coming out, and they surrendered. And that was the end of World War II.”
“Adam Sandler’s a big star now…and nobody heard of him until I beat him up in ‘Happy Gilmore‘.”
If Barker gets his shot at the 11 p.m. slot, hopefully he won’t forget to spay and neuter Stuart Scott & Chris Berman.
