Craig James continues his meteoric ascent in the Pammies taking first and third place this week.  What explains this phenomenon?  Oh yea… people despise Craig James and the dumb things he says.  His lead over Pam Ward is now up to 20 points in the standings.  I actually thought about giving Craig James the points for Gus Johnson’s quote at #4 this week, but that would be in violation of Rule 18-A in the Pammy bylaws.  (Oh they exist, believe me.)  Gus makes his first appearance of the year, as do Scott Van Pelt and ABC’s #1 play by play man.  Welcome to the show, Brent!  The envelope please…
