With the beginning of the playoffs and the elimination of four more teams, I thought it fitting for a comparison...to Will Ferrell characters. Ferrell, along with Seth Rogen and vintage Adam Sandler, is in the top tier of gloriously funny actors. The teams should feel honored to be compared to Mr. Will Ferrell.

Name says it all for Frank.

The best ever before stumbling on a broadcast, insulting the city around him. Later rebounds to cover the panda story.
