Here is my exclusive interview with Steve Mariucci, who predicted the winners of the Week 17 games!
ME: Steve, thanks for joining me! I'm looking forward to hearing whom you're picking in Week 17.
MARIUCCI: "Thank you for having me, Walt! What a beautiful evening tonight. Tonight is such a beautiful evening."
ME: Wow, you just might be the nicest guest I've ever had. OK, let's get right to it. Eagles-Cowboys. Who ya got?
MARIUCCI: "Oh, good golly, these are just two fantastic teams. What fantastic teams they are, oh boy!"
ME: I wouldn't call them fantastic. Let's say, above average. Who's going to win?
MARIUCCI: "Oh gee whiz, oh boy! Good golly, these teams are just so terrific, let me tell you!"
ME: Ugh, can you just say whom you're picking?
MARIUCCI: "Oh jeepers... oh jeepers... oh jeepers..."
ME: Just tell me whom you're picking! Dallas or Philadelphia!?
MARIUCCI: "Oh, good grief, Dallas is such a great club, but Philadelphia has some incredible athletes. This should be a very close contest, oh boy, it will be such a thrill to watch, let me tell you!"
ME: You're not going to give me a winner, are you?
MARIUCCI: "Gee whiz, I can't wait to talk about the next game, good golly!"
ME: Yeah, we're not going to do that. I quit.
