ESPN Radio (1:03 PM)
Hey folks. Scott is grabbing a Diet Coke and then he'll be here to get things going. Keep the questions coming.
ESPN Radio (1:06 PM)
Some of our V Foundation auction winners are here today. Don't you wish you could also witness this chat in person?
SVP, you are cooler than Russillo since you actually showed for your chat.
ESPN Radio (1:09 PM)
Ryen had to push his chat back to 4p today. Two for the price of one!
ESPN Radio (1:12 PM)
Scott is now visible. Better late than never.

SVP if you're not 5 minutes early, you're late!

At what age does a shawty become a creepy old lady at the bar?
Scott Van Pelt (1:16 PM)
I'm saying the cut-off to be a shawty is...40? No offense.
If Flacco invited Mel over for a sleepover, do you think Mel would sleep on the couch?
Scott Van Pelt (1:17 PM)
No, they'd spoon and Flacco would marvel at Mel's magnificent salad (that's his hair-do).

van peezy, who you got in the phils-dodgers series starting tonight?
Scott Van Pelt (1:18 PM)
I like the Phillies and my reasoning is this: that's what I think is going to happen. It's a gut call. Charlie Manuel style.
Hey SVP, any thoughts on the Kim/ Allenby controversy? To me it sounds as if Allenby was trying to be funny but it seems to have really struck a nerve with the young American?
Scott Van Pelt (1:19 PM)
The John Daly stuff was out of line. Anthony has definitely had his rock star moments, but if you got smoked 5 and 3 would you really want to admit or suggest the guy who did it to you was loaded?
Hi Scott! You have a great show!!What do you think of what the San Jose Sharks are doing after all their home games? Saluting the fans seems to be a really classy move!
Scott Van Pelt (1:19 PM)
What are they doing? I will check with John Buccigross and give you an appropriate answer.

Scott, as a Maryland alum as well as fan, what are the expectations for Terps Basketball this year? With Greivis and co. back I know they are a bit small but can they make some noise?
Scott Van Pelt (1:21 PM)
They're pretty loaded at guard and are going to need the young big men to play well to make a run. I hear Jordan Williams has great hands and is going to be a scoring option in the post that they haven't had in a while. I know Gary's excited about the team. I'll leave it at that.
Ryen's gf on a scale of 1-10 is _______
Scott Van Pelt (1:22 PM)
11. Seriously. The science is strong.
Would you rather go to Vegas for the Super Bowl or go the actual location Miami?
Scott Van Pelt (1:22 PM)
This is easy. Vegas. All day, every day. The Super Bowl is corporate grab-*ss. Vegas is stripper grab-*ss. I kid, I kid.Or do I?
High class redneck Friday, got luxury suite tickets to the Nationwide race. Want me to tell Bruton Smith hello for you?
Scott Van Pelt (1:23 PM)
What is the equivolent of luxury suite tickets to the Nationwide race?
Scotty V, anybody ever tell you that you look like Keith Van Horn? Do you wear the knee high socks around the office too?
Scott Van Pelt (1:24 PM)
Yes, people have told me I look like Keith Van Horn. Here are the people I have been told I look like: Matthew Perry on Friends, Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties and now that I'm bald some chick in Dallas thinks I look like a space alien.
All you guys at espn make me nervous when you start liking the Razorbbacks in football. Can you ignore them a little more?
Scott Van Pelt (1:26 PM)
We're talking Razorback football today. Don't get nervous. It's not really as much about you as it is about Florida and Alabama. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooo pig..................................................................................sooey.
I live just outside of dc in Redskins fans area and UM terps area what do you think about the skins players backing Jim Zorn I am a redskins fan and I want to see Zorn fired and see someone like Jon Gruden who can control the team and bring fans hope
Scott Van Pelt (1:27 PM)
Gruden's not the guy you want if you want control because he's the one guy people are suggesting would take the gig WITHOUT control. If you're a Skins fan you should be rooting for a Shanahan type who won't come in unless he's given autonomy.

QUITE FRANKLY, YOU CAN'T HIDE FROM ME HERE, SCOTT VAN PELT!
