Pulse: Chatter: The Sock That Roared

As if he needed more publicity, Inky and ESPN loudmouth Stephen A. Smith is now immortalized on YouTube. Shot by three guys from New York, a seven-minute video (close to 90,000 views to date) titled “Stephen A. Smith Heckled at the 2007 NBA Draft” features a brown sock puppet (dubbed “Lil’ SAS”) impersonating Smith’s strident, Plymouth-Rock-landed-on-us! cadence.

Responding via e-mail, Smith simply said that his media profile “automatically places me in the unenviable position of receiving all types of attention.” And just to clarify, he didn’t respond in all caps.
