Indiana native David Letterman enjoys his Pacers. So when hilarious comic Hannibal Burress brought up silly team mascot names — noting the Pelicans and Spurs, which he said were just a thing that could fall off your boot if you run — Dave asked him if he knew what a Pacer is.
Like most, Burress said that it was a pace car. But Letterman corrected him, explaining that it is actually a horse.
Such things make you think that maybe that franchise should consider re – naming the team after the late, great Ropey. The ensuing conversation also makes you remember how great this show can be when it’s just Dave and another truly funny dude talking nonsense.
For those that don’t know Hannibal Burress, he’s one of the best stand ups alive currently, especially if you enjoy stories about apple juice.
