PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, who will be the next sports star to inspire ridiculous headlines? Peter Grosz?

PETER GROSZ: Major League Baseball will be dominated this season by all-American rookie phenom Johnnie Apple Pie Chevrolet McHotDog.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Kyrie O'Connor?

KYRIE O'CONNOR: I don't know who she'll be but she'll be plucky and smart and a part of some naturally enthusiastic community and then be counted out and shunned and she'll overcome fantastic odds and transform into a media darling owing to her short headline-friendly name that rhymes with lots of stuff.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Fair enough. And Mo Rocca?

MO ROCCA: The first ever three person synchronized swimming team, Nick, Kevin and Joe Jonas.

CARL KASELL: Well, if any of those people emerge, panel, we'll ask you about it WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Peter Grosz, Kyrie O'Connor and Mo Rocca. Thanks to everyone at KCPW.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to our fabulous audience here at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, you're great. I'm Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
