Local Wrestler Makes Howard Stern Reference During Olympic Opening Ceremony:
Jake Herbert: Olympian, Pittsburgh Native, Die Hard Stern Fan.
As a life long fan of the 'Howard Stern' Radio show, I have always thought about what it would be like to do something big to get on the show's radar. Turns out I'm not the only one who used their time in the spot light to get the attention of the king of all media.
American wrestler and North Allegheny alum, Jake Herbert, figured that time would be during the opening Olympic ceremony to drop in a "baba-booey" shout out. For those who don't listen to the show, 'Baba-booey' is a nick name that the Stern staff call the show's producer and over the years it has become trademarked by random fans yelling it out in what is usually in-appropriate settings.
NBC edited out the attempt, but BBC has it in all it's glory. You can listen to some of Jake's interview HERE. I will look for the entire interview over the next couple days and post it if it's available. Jake competes Aug. 11th in the 84 Kg. division.
