L’ville Sports Anchor Drops 46 Rap Refs

Sports anchor Adam Lefkoe of Louisville’s ABC affiliate, WHAS, takes his job seriously. Yet he also knows how to have fun like no other counterpart in the business.

In his “Sportscast” this past Sunday, Lefkoe - who has devoted previous editions of “Sportscast” to professional wrestling and “Seinfeld” - included 46 hip-hop references in roughly five minutes while recapping the previous day’s Louisville-Kentucky and Western Kentucky and Indiana games (among other sports stories). Here are some of our favorites:

  • 0:09 – “When Charlie Strong woke up this morning, he knew it was a good day.” (Ice Cube, “It Was a Good Day”)
  • 1:24 – “Alabama has stopped, dropped and opened up shop at No. 1.” (DMX, “Ruff Ryders Anthem”)
  • 1:57 – “Max Smith missed most of the second half and he has no diggity or doubt that he will play against the Gators.” (Blackstreet, “No Diggity”)

The graphic of Bobby Petrino with the words “Son, They Shook” (Mobb Deep, “Shook Ones”) underneath is also a nice touch.

Naturally, when Lefkoe was finished, he dropped the miniature mic.

The second most up-voted comment for the YouTube clip of this puts it best: “How long until ESPN hires this bad a*s fool?”
