Frequently amused by The Ticket, but how often does one laugh out loud sitting and listening solo?
I did, yesterday, with the replay of the Fake Michael Irvin call to Fake Troy Aikman. George was doing his usual masterful job with Michael, who was calling Troy to try to get him to make a "Finish the Fight" video in support of the Cowboys playoff run.
All Troy/Gordon wanted to do was to finish preparing his waffles. The deadpan delivery, the pauses, the timing, the implied incomprehension -- man, I could just see Troy spooning the mix onto the griddle with head cocked to secure the smartphone to his ear, thoroughly annoyed. Brilliantly underplayed by Gordon -- no punch lines, no inside references, no multiple entendres. Just a hilarious contrast between George's Michael in a frenzied lather over the Cowboys, and Gordon's Troy just trying to get some flapjacks underway.
Laughing again just thinking about it.
