what a lazy article by espn. Southerland finished 4th in verticle leap (38 in.); 3rd in bench (28 reps); tied for 8th in broad jump; Moreno's 25 reps did finish in top 10, in fact tied for 6th and finished top 10 in 2 other drills

No joke on Andy Richter. He'll be doing the announcing but won't do the full-on Ed McMahon sidekick thing, apparently.
