Lil Wayne Wins Around the Horn Showdown

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in ,

The normal Around the Horn panel just wanted Lil Wayne to show his "swagga like us," but the pop icon ended up showing that he knows more about sports than most people give him credit for.

The rap star showed up Tuesday evening, with all his grills and tats, and took control of the hit show on ESPN. He held on late into the "competition" for an epic showdown with Michael Smith.

Sure, it was fixed, but it was an interesting show. In fact, Wayne had some really intelligent things to say about what is going on in the sports world.

The best part of the show was Wayne's 20 seconds to himself, in which he revealed to the sports nation that he is no longer afraid of Lawrence Taylor, the ferocious former Giants LB. The hip-hop mogul cited the Hall of Famer's recent agreement to participate in Dancing with Stars as the reason he is no longer scared, saying his initials (LTT) now stood for something different: "Little Twinkle Toes."

I'm surprised Terry Tate, the office linebacker, didn't come out of nowhere and take Lil Wayne down for making such comments about his storied friend. "Who do you think you are, coming in here making such comments about LT? And then drinking the last of the coffee and not refilling it!"

It was Wayne's world for a day.
