Let me be honest right off the bat. I’m not a Team Coco guy. I mean, he’s ok, but I wasn’t crying inconsolably for months when he got booted off the Tonight Show, nor was I waiting like a kid at Christmas for his TBS return. But, when I heard that Joe Buck was going to be on Conan, I knew I had to check it out. This interview is about what you would expect, with Buck drooling over sitting in Conan’s seat (or Andy Richter’s for a matter of fact). I’m trying to figure out what the highlight is in this interview, because it’s certainly not Super Bowl talk. Is it exciting mascot talk? A-Rod getting hit by a baseball? Joe Buck’s lame attempts at humor? Robot genitalia?
Could this be a predecessor to the return of Joe Buck Live??? We can only hope. I just wonder why Conan didn’t ask Joe Buck about Maxim’s Joe Buck mute button for the Super Bowl… now that would have made for a fun interview!
