Somehow, (guessing friendship) he managed his way into a full blown media career.

On 110%, he tried to be funny and drove all the nails in his own coffin. The fact that he thought that making fun of a Greek name on TV using the f-bomb would not be seen as a slight to the player, and to all those with good sense tells you how out his depth he is in being clever.
but Joe, if that never happened, he would've never been on PJ Stock's show and I never would've heard the immortal line, 'I'm not a racist, I live in Brossard'.

Does it get better than that ?

I think he's ok at impressions but nowhere near as clever as he finds himself, then again, nether am I.
