Storyline

Dave Richards is looking for a replacement television sportscaster to fill his position and thinks Sam would be the perfect person: he knows sports and he looks good. Although initially apprehensive about his abilities to do it, Sam agrees to fill in for the week. If he does well, this stint could lead to a whole new career in front of the camera. With Woody's help, Sam makes up a lie to Rebecca to get out of working at the bar for that time. Although Rebecca eventually finds out the real reason for Sam's absence, she allows him time off as she sees it as a win-win situation for her. If he fails, he's humiliated. If he succeeds, he's out of her life. Reading the actual sportscasts is one issue, but the sports commentaries, where he has to write his own material and come up with a point of view, is a whole different matter. Like his earlier lie to Rebecca, Sam needs Woody's help with regard to the result of his sportscasts. Written by Huggo

'I' on Sports (#6.2)
31 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dave Richards needs to go away and asks Sam to take over his job as a sports commentator. Sam goes but hi way to get out of the bar is caught by Rebecca. Ad he doesn't do too well on TV. He tries to come up with something more interesting but his rapping and the dummy fail big time and he is back to the bar.

Many fun moments. The best is of course Rebecca getting Woody on the Phone just standing and holding it. Both times! And Sam was a great actor when pretending that he was robbed. We all already know that Ted Dansen is but so is Sam Malone. His rapping part was hilarious, so old school! Maybe even for those times
