Bill Simmons' Book Stops a Bullet- and the Sports Nation Host Michelle Beadle Insults Guest When She Thinks We Can't Hear Her

By: T.R. Slyder,, AndyDisco on Twitter

Yesterday ESPN's Sports Nation, ESPN writer Bill Simmons appeared as a guest to promote his new book, The Book of Basketball. In an attempt to show how large the book is (750 pages) the crew sent correspondent Kevin Wildes to a gun shooting range to see if the book was thick enough to actually stop a bullet. The owner of the shooting range, Ray has the honor or shooting the Smith and Wesson 9mm at the book. Ray's appearance reminds me a bit of the Comic Book guy on the Simpsons- overweight, bearded and his lack of charisma, in tandem with his apperance, make him seem a little creepy.

So they shoot the book and it stops the bullet and Kevin sends it back to the studio to resume the interview with Simmons. Moments later Ray then brings out a higher caliber gun, and the show kicks back to the shooting range. While Ray is preparing to shoot, you can clearly hear co-host Michelle Beadle say, "Ray scares me" at the :58 seconds-remaining mark.

That's how I roll.
