When Eric the Midget called in to see if he could participate in this year's football pool, Howard told him he couldn't. Howard then got to yesterday's pool results, announcing the following: The New Big Foot won with the New York Jets and Crazy Alice won with the Cincinnati Bengals. Conversely, Elegant Elliott Offen and Artie both lost with their picks of the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals, respectively. Although Eric was informed he couldn't be in the football pool, he told Howard he'd be willing to fly with balloons in the studio if he was given tickets to the opening of some wrestling movie he wanted to see, and if Howard was willing to sign "a proviso" taking all responsibility if he was harmed during the stunt. Howard replied, though, he wasn't interested in Eric's offer, and added he wanted Eric to be more like Richard, who he noted volunteered to put his penis in a tank of stingrays following Steve Irwin's death last week.
