Let's go you degenerates!

Christian (High Point, NC)

I have to stop missing the Morning Buzz. I get more work done on days where I participate.

Kia (California)

wow this show is my favorite. it's the perfect balance of sports and comedy and celeberties. Thanks for this big amount of amazingness.

Michelle Beadle (On Air)

Excuse me, Buzzmaster, please take your eyes off of me and tend to the chat. Thank you.

Buzzmaster
  (4:00 PM)

Mankini...I smell Emmy...I think.

James (OC, Cali)

I Dunked on Lebron, but he stole my video!!!

Dustin D (Indiana)

Does Chad Ochocinco really think he can do you job

Buzzmaster
  (4:01 PM)

It's amazing what one missing r can do to a post.

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Hello? Is there anybody in there?

Sean (Philly)

Buzz or KC, Buzz or KC, Buzz or KC....I can't decide

Buzzmaster
  (4:02 PM)

Umm Buzz. Who cares about math.

Ben (Charlotte)

Just nod if you can hear me.

Jake

Vince Carter is so much a better dunker than D Howard.

fred (omaha)

hi michelle!

Eric Md [via mobile]

nod

Buzzmaster
  (4:04 PM)

LOL-ing is lame, and will cause you to lose your man card in this chat.

Zac (IN)

By the way, I saw Jordan Crawford at IU and he's an athlete and all, but LeBron would have never gotten posterized by him, I'm just sayin I think he let it happen....and I'm a cavs fan

chaz (sa tx)

goooood mor...er afternoooon buuzzzzz

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Re: LeBron video, I couldn't care less.

Buzzmaster
  (4:06 PM)

I think this is great for Nike. We are in approaching the MLB All-Star break and all yet people are talking about is LeBron brand and Nike.

Zac (IN)

Me neither Clinton, but since I've missed yesterday's TAB and today TMB I felt my two cents were needed....there done

Eric Md [via mobile]

LEBRON IS A BABY FO BEING AFRAID THAT SOMEONE MIGHT BE BETTER THEN HIM AND KEEPING IT FROM THE WORLD OF SPORTS

Sean (Philly)

You are right Buzz, I haven't cared about Math since I gradumacated.

Ed Hochuli (Chat Ref)

*grabs flag in anticipation of a LOL*

Christian (High Point, NC)

The chat is acting like pure pulse right now.

Seve (San Diego)

LeBron may not own any rings, but he now owns a tape of some high school kid dunking on him. Way to go King, you joke.

chaz (sa tx)

tsk tsk who was it buzz? who LOL'ed?

Anthony (NY)

sorry I'm late Buzz, I was watching the Yanks about to win their 13th game of their last 15.

Rickey Henderson (Hall of Fame)

Jerry Rice wouldn't answer Rickey's comment. Rickey's comment was that Jerry Rice is great, but Rickey is the greatest of all-time.

a

Can Vince still dunk?

Zac (IN)

TAB: where pulse happens

Joe (Huntsville,AL)

Sean went straight from math to meth and never looked back

Steve (Olathe, KS) [via mobile]

Why does anyone even care about the LeBron video? Oh, someone dunked on him! It's basketball!

Ricky Rubio (Not Minnesota)

I am the greatest Ricky of all time.

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Phil Niekro won over 300 games with a knuckler.

Jared (Evansville, IN)

You should cover next month's fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Josh Barnett. That's a much bigger fight in the Mixed Martial Arts world than the Mir-Lesnar II fight.

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Aw, crap, I totally forgot about the Jerry Rice chat.

Ricky Vaughan (California Penal Legaue)

I'm actually the greatest of all time, you just don't realize it....103 mph mean anything to ya??

Thomas Volkert (Berwick, PA)

47% said No, seriously?

Lee Trevino (Course)

Fact: Grizzly Adams did have a beard

John Madden (using the telestrator)

Now right here you've got Jordan Crawford *draws on screen* and he goes down the lane and jumps over LeBron *draws* and throws down a dunk *draws* In order to dunk on LeBron you have to throw it down, because that's how you dunk. BOOM!

Buzzmaster
  (4:12 PM)

Game. Set. Match. Best post since we've launched.

Ben (Charlotte)

The poll on cnn.com today: Is President Obama tough enough? That made me lol, LOL

Ricky Bobby (Talladega)

There's only one greatest Ricky of all time. It's yours truly, because I piss excellence.

Nathan (Manassas)

Oh, we've got a lol.

Ed Hochuli (Chat Ref)

That's a double personal foul against Ben from Charlotte for using lol twice. Watch it son before the ejections come. Repeat 2nd down.

Ricky Gervais (Rolling in gold)

You American twits!!!! I am the greatest, because I created the real Office...and I'm British!!

Matt (Jacksonville)

I can't believe Frank Caliendo has been reduced to posting in the SportsNation TV chat

Brett Favre (Minnesota)

I can dunk on LeBron, all while throwing a TD pass on my John Deer.

Matt (IN)

Uh oh, the Brit just drew a line in the sand.

Thomas Volkert (Berwick, PA)

I wish more MMA would be covered on ESPN. They show a spelling Bee, an eating contest, why not MMA, it's a sport.

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Deere. John Deere.

Buzzmaster
  (4:16 PM)

The next poll we ask during a show commercial break will be the greatest Ricky of all time.

Joe (Huntsville,AL)

I would like to see mixed martial eating

George Brett (KC)

Dunking on LeBron....HAHAHA, I did that 3 times, once while roudning the bases during a grand slam, once while showering after attacking the umps after my pinetar incident, and once....wait for it......right now...BOOM!!!

Matt (Jacksonville)

Boxing > MMA

Alex (Littleton, CO)

Had Five Guys (Bacon Cheese with grilled onions) again today, they should be the sponsor of TAB.

Nathan (Manassas)

Hey. Spelling bees are intense. I'd love to see Brock Lesnar participate in one.

Ricky Bobby (Talladega)

Include me. I am the greatest. Best Ricky Ever!

Rick James (Hollywood)

The Greatest Rick? None of ya'll are superbad!!

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Boxing = MMA = not watching.

chaz (sa tx)

i have no idea what mixed martial eating is but it already sounds awesome, ill take 2 tickets please.

Thomas Volkert (Berwick, PA)

Too bad they're too different animals Matt. You can't really compare the two in terms of combat. Boxing has also been around how much longer as a competitive sport than MMA?

Pete (NC)

Greater Buzz: McAllister, Master, Aldrin, or Lightyear?

Matt Damon (Buzz's Couch)

LOL LOL LOL, try and take my man card Buzz, I dare you!

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

There's too much hugging in MMA. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

MMA (all over the world)

we dont like looking at you iether clinton

Jeremy (Lexington)

awesome autotune of AI and Mora reminds me of autotune the news on youtube...also awesome

Ricky Williams (South Beach)

I am the greatest Ricky! I played in the NFL and CFL, plus I have sweet dreads!

Cole (IN)

Zac (IN)

Ricky Martin (Your Radio)

I am the greatest Ricky for living la vida loca!

Cole (IN)

ooooooooooo score 1 for mma (all over the world)

Nathan (Manassas)

Hey, is Brett calling today? I don't think I saw his name.

Buzzmaster
  (4:20 PM)

Not sure we're going to get to Brett today...I know a very disappointing day.

Paul (Ft Worth)

Ping Pong > Boxing < MMA

James (OC, Ca)

Buzzy Im Back, arent you excited??? Pop Tarts for lunch!!

Sarah Palin (Alaska)

The TAB is like a full-court press.

Manny (Denver)

I think Fred (Omaha) is obsessed with Michelle, keep an eye out for any creepy looking dudes, Buzz, this show is nothing without a hottie!

chaz (sa tx)

buzzy? yikes... * scoots away from james

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Mixed Martial Eating? Will they serve karate chops?

RAY GORDON REID ( DALLAS TEXAS 75205)

I VOTE FOR RICKYMARTIN LANDSLIDE YOU GOT THAT Y;ALL NOW BUZZ

Anthony (NY)

soccer>MMA<AFL and thats saying something

James (OC, Ca)

Rickey Ricardo (Heaven)

I am the greatest Rickey of all time.I played bongos,sang,danced and still had time to bail Lucy out all her shenanigans.

cody skvarek (surprise arizona)

i think you guys need to start talking about bull ridin. cause it is th toughest sport on earth. and it hs been around for along time also.

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Bull riding? Seriously?

Joe (Huntsville,AL)

Is this square dancing tractor video, a snippet from Brett Favre's new Wrangler's commercial?

Buzzmaster
  (4:26 PM)

Replace tractors with ride on mowers.

Next Poll (Who is the best rapper alive?)

A. Lil Wayne B. Weezy F. Baby C. Dwayne Carter

Bad Comic (An empty comedy club.)

Javelin catchers are the toughest athletes on the planet.

Cory (PA)

Anytime you find yourself on the back of a bull you'll dang sure take it seriously.

Bruce Dickinson (Behind the Music)

Never question fred (omaha)!

Matt (Jacksonville)

jai alai > all other sports

Clinton (Indianapolis)

Anytime you find yourself on the back of a bull you need to get your freakin' head examined.

Tom (Jacksonville)

Um we're forgetting Shaq, AI, and Ron Artest in this rap question clearly this poll is invalid

Kevin (Missouri)

2 days in a row of Stephen Colbert not getting his call in?? I love that guy, let him on!!

Zac (IN)

No jai alai is interesting not tough, Dos Equis tells me so

Buzzmaster
  (4:29 PM)

Hey guess what Pac-10 not in the Top 3 in Power Rankings.

RAY GORDON REID ( MONTREAL QUBEC CAnada )

LIL WAYNE

Pac-10 (West Coast)

We're not even suprised about that

James (SC)

I agree they aren't top 3

Paul (Tampa,FL)

If you guys tell me the PAC10 is not the 2nd best conference, I will puke on my keyboard.

Buzzmaster
  (4:30 PM)

Not according to SportsNation.

chaz (sa tx)

WHY IS RAY GORDON ALWAYS YELLING!!!!????

James (SC)

Big 12 should be number one

Nick (NY)

not suprising

Paul (Ft Worth)

Hey guess what? PAC-10 poll participants are just getting back from lunch...

Brandon (Tampa)

People hate on the Pac-10 I grew up int Cali and I have noticed the hate since I moved east

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

Um, Pac-10 conference? I'm not aware of any other Pac-10s.

Urban Meyer (Gainesville)

I'm not for the Pac 10. People that turribull won't be sitting in 37F.

Reggie (Boston)

SEC, Big 12 are better, Paul

Zac (IN)

Puke Puke Puke!!!!

Brandon (Tampa)

The Big 10 is overrated and the Big 12 top teams struggled in the bowl gamesAsk Texas Tech

Matt (Jacksonville)

In football? No, they aren't top 3. It clearly goes SEC, Big 12, who cares

Every small confrence. (All over America)

How come we never get the respect we deserve whaaaaaaaaaaa....

Zac (IN)

It goes 1. Pac-man, 2. Ms. Pac-man, 3. Pac-sun, 4. Pac 10 duh

Alex (Littleton, CO)

The MWC has a winning record against the Pac-10

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

I have no idea what we're voting on, but I'll say ACC since no one else has.

The Mountain West Conf. (Mountains)

We are the best!!!

James (SC)

Texas Tech was over rated, and Texas did get cheated.

Jeremy (Lexington)

Big Ten?!?!?!?!? I guess all those Ohio State fans got their votes in cuz I would put them behind the MWC honestly atleast they can beat an SEC team

Paul (Ft Worth)

yes but Tech played the SEC in their bowl and the SEC is better than the Big 12. SO there.

Matt (Jacksonville)

Time to respect the Sun Belt

Tom (Jacksonville)

how can you say the Big 12 should be one when the SEC beat them in both big games they played last bowl season (UF and Ole Miss)

Alex (Littleton, CO)

SEC first, the rest changes every year.

Ivy League (Mansions)

Yes, worry about your sport conferences. You'll be too busy cutting our grass and dusting our Monets once you get educated at your local hillbilly college.

Paul (Tampa,FL)

Ya, well the PAC10 is 10-7 against the SEC, since the BCS started.For all you wizz kids.

Nathan (Manassas)

The WAC!

Reggie (Boston)

Other than USC, who is really good? Washington stinks, Wazu stinks, Stanford stinks, Arizonas and Oregons aren't great, Cal and UCLA are average

Ed (PA)

Pac 10 is one team USC that's it. As a conference doesnt deserve top 3

Buzzmaster
  (4:35 PM)

That may be one more than the Big Ten.

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Dart team goalies have guts .

Joe (Huntsville,AL)

The MWC has a whining record against everyone

Nathan (Manassas)

USC and the Pac-9

Paul (Tampa,FL)

Reggie, You're from Boston.. Have you even heard of College Football?

Ogre (Adams College)

What conference is Adams in, cuz we're the best....NERDS!!!

Scott Hall (USA)

The Big Ten is funnier than the movie The Hangover.

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

It's bad enough we have to listen to the Conference Smack Talk from September to January, can we please talk about anything else?

Matt (Jacksonville)

SEC girls > All other conferences' girls

Nathan (Manassas)

How'd Texas get cheated? It was their own conference tie break rules.

Tom (Jacksonville)

honestly the ACC is better than the Big 10. I think UVA played closer to USC then Ohio State did

James (SC)

Yea but who did tech play? And Bama really showed that SEC power

Every conference but the Pac-10 Memphis (The USA)

At least we don't pay our players to come to our schools.

Ugly American (Every sports bar )

Soccor fever.I hope it is not contagous.I'd rather have scabies.

JOEPA (State College)

Cmon buzz, we at least beat oregon state

Jeremy (Lexington)

Bama would beat Utah 9 straight times after that game

Reggie (Boston)

Paul you're from Florida, what are you doing defending the Pac-10? And which of those teams that I named are good? Name 1 of them that could beat Georgia who was 3rd or 4th best in the SEC.

Dillon (Wichita, KS)

I think the rankings were pretty good, but i think the Big 10 is a complete joke.

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

And then Bama would lose to UL-Monroe again.

Buzzmaster
  (4:39 PM)

Zorbist-Pena...super awkward.

Matt (Jacksonville)

Vandy would come in 2nd in the Pac 10 or Big 10

JD (Boston)

Spoooooon mannn...save me!!!

Brandon (Tampa)

I am a rays fan that was really awkward

Nathan (Manassas)

It's not that awkward. They wore pants. I really don't think anything can be more awkward than Artest walking into my shower telling me he can help me.

James (SC)

SEC is overrated they have florida and Georgia

JD (Boston)

always worse in slow motion freeze frame

Brandon (Tampa)

Vandy sucks and just because a team is in the SEC doesn't make them awesome.

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

Normally I can't stand the Red Sox and Yankees buying a playoff spot every year, but after the Rays beat Halladay twice in the past two weeks, I'm ok if they want him.

RAY GORDON REID ( ATLANTA GA 30303)

RIGHT NOW BUZZ RAY GORDON TO CHRISTIAN HI POINT NORTHCAROLINA HUSH UP SONNY

Matt (Burlington)

That must of been really awkward

tomwit nj [via mobile]

Soccer in US is the feeder system for NFL kickers

Tom (Jacksonville)

James your logic makes no sense. Florida is a defending champion returning there entire defense that dominated the best offense in the history of college football?

Buzzmaster
  (4:43 PM)

Hey Nation, hate to break up the conference talk, but if you want us to ask a poll that will be revealed during our commercial breaks, send them in now.

James (OC, Ca )

I really want some White Castle Burgers right now!!!

Jim

Best burger joint.

James (OC, Ca )

Best Offseason pickupVince CarterRasheed WallaceShawn MarionRon Artest

Steve (LA)

Wasn't RGR just in Quebec like 10 minutes ago?

JD (Boston)

Is that mic live or just a prop????????? Nice look Bob Barker!

Pete (NC)

Oh great, another conference battle. I'll say it again, teams win championships, not conferences. I would never stick out my chest if NC State won a bowl game like it makes UNC any better.

Nathan (Manassas)

Best fast food

Paul (Ft Worth)

Best Current Coach/Manager: 1. Joe Torre 2. Phil Jackson 3. Bill Belichek 4.Bobby Bowden 5. Joe Paterno

James (OC, Ca )

Hey Buzz, they are building a 5 guys Burger joint in so cali... what should i try?

Buzzmaster
  (4:46 PM)

Everything

Nathan (Manassas)

RGR is everywhere and nowhere

Nathan (Manassas)

James. I recommend the burger.

Reggie (Boston)

Well, I'm out for a quick 9 holes, Buzz. Take it easy Nation.

Foghorn Leghorn (Different Channel)

Uh, I say...uh, I say, there, how about a poll about roosters?

Matt (Boston)

Best Knuckleball pitcher ever

Jeremy (Lexington)

I could coach Team USA to a gold medal, 4 words.... Go do your thing

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

Lucky for Pete, there's no chance of that happening. But I agree: one of the best parts of sports is hating other teams. Conference homerism sucks.

James (OC, Ca )

Thanks Nathan, I will remember that when I order, yes, can I have a Burger!

Pete (NC)

James, you build your burger, so it's whatever you like on it. Just realize that a regular burger is a double.

RAY GORDON REID (TALLAHASSEE FLORIDA 323O6)

NUJMBER.1 LETS STAY CLASSY SPORTS NATION HAHA BUZZ NUMBER.2 I BE ON MORNING BUZZ AND SPORTSNATION TOMORROW GOT THAT BUZZY MASTER

Alex (Littleton, CO)

Buzzmaster
  (4:49 PM)

Colin is crushing this segment.

Joe (Huntsville,AL)

Building burgers>Building bears

Dillon (Wichita, KS)

Coach K is great coach, but he isn't the difference in winning or losing the olympics. The US has far superior talent.

Joe (Huntsville,AL)

Buzz is crushing his shoes

Nathan (Manassas)

Not building burgers>building bears

Paul (Tampa,FL)

In N' Out Burger is much better than 5 guys.It's just science.

Colin (Bristol)

Buzz is crushing that pop tart

Matt (Jacksonville)

SportsNation > USA

Awayne (INDY)

How did Ray Gordon Reid get from Atlanta to Tallahassee in less than 20 minutes?

Jeremy (Lexington)

Just don't let Billy G coach them

James (Denver)

Fat Burger gets my vote

Nathan (Manassas)

The US always has superior talent. And yet we hadn't won a gold medal in several years before last yet.

Tom Hanks (Island)

I.................have made fire!

Wilson (Island)

................................

James (OC, Ca )

I only asked which burger, because im getting ready to go to lunch, and needed some ideas!!! haha

Anthony (NY)

I ate White Castle for lunch today. that gets my vote

Alex (Littleton, CO)

Fuddrucker's is also near the top of the list.

Pete (NC)

Bravo to the Wilson post, but technically it would be Wilson (Ocean) .................

JD (Boston)

Lunch in CA- No no no...dinner here! I need ideas!

Anthony (NY)

Burger King whopper. Those taste good

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

I need a ruling from Hochuli: is "ha ha" as bad as "lol"?

Buzzmaster
  (4:54 PM)

No way. LOL is a whole different level of corny.

Awayne (INDY)

Only Nelson from Springfield should be allowed to HA HA.

James (OC, Ca )

Christian, I was going for an evil laugh, I figured HAHA was better than HEHE

Ed Hochuli (Chat Ref)

That's a personal foul on James (OC). Haha is just as bad as lol. % yard penalty, repeat 3rd down.

Buzzmaster
  (4:55 PM)

No way Ed. No freakin way.

Tom (Jacksonville)

what about ROFL where does it rank in comparrison to LOL?

Buzzmaster
  (4:56 PM)

Horrible.

Pete (NC)

hehe?

James (Denver)

Carrot top rulez!!!!!!!

Jay (NY)

What is a % yard penalty? Was he trying to curse?

ROFLMFA (Tampa,FL)

I win

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

James: The proper evil laugh is Mwahaha.

The Real Ed Hochuli (Chat Ref)

After review, "ha ha" is not as bad as "lol." However, the poster stated that he is just now going to lunch. Since people who have lives have already eaten by now, that is a 15 yard penalty. Repeat 2nd down.

Jay (NY)

I'm GTGWATB - Going to get wasted at the bar.

Buzzmaster
  (4:58 PM)

It's the end of the day!

Pete (NC)

rolling on floor laughing my fat ankle?

Cartman (Southpark CO)

Screw you guys I'm going home.

Christian (High Point, NC) [via mobile]

Dinner chat! Leftover sloppy joe on top of leftover pasta (we're out of sauce).

Nathan (Manassas)

Good for Wilbur Wood. In the 70's.

Anquan Boldin (Arizona)

None of my stuff has gotten posted. I'm outta here.

Buzzmaster
  (5:00 PM)

Alright guys. SN TV back on Monday...like Michelle said, we're not canceled..yet.

Pete Weber (Bowling alley)

Goosh!
