Ross vs. Jason Heats Up

Early in the show, Howard played some Wrap-Up Show clips of Ross Zapin arguing with Jason over a photo Tim had taken of Ross’s bald spot.

Howard laughed that Ross was originally just upset with Tim, but after Jason praised–on Twitter–a joke Tim had made about the situation, Ross turned on Jason: “So now it’s turned into a second argument.”

In one clip, Ross could be heard renouncing his friendship with Jason as Jason just laughed: “You are the most sensitive motherf’er.” Ross replied that Jason should only start shit-stirring when, like Gary has, “you get another 18 years under your belt.”

Gary told Howard that the argument ended with a long silence and bulging veins in Ross’s neck: “Ross was going to jump across the console. I think he really wanted to kill Jason.”

In another clip, Ross’s anger with Jason boiled over: “Have you ever been punched out?…I wish I wasn’t working here with you. I really do.”

Jason laughed nervously: “Then quit! And then you can beat me up on the street.”

Gary then handed Howard a ‘bonus’ clip–one recorded surreptitiously during the next commercial break–in which Ross could be heard threatening: “I’m serious, Jason. C’mon. Come take a walk. You’re a big guy behind the microphone…come over here, mister. big shot.”
