Mike Wise Lets Harold Bell Roar: Bell’s Legend Remains Secure!

Harold Bell got some mainstream media time this afternoon.
He didn't waste it.
Bell, a D.C. sportstalk pioneer profiled in our pages in February, was brought on the Mike Wise Show on WJFK-FM because of a characteristically flame-throwing column he recently posted on Bleacher Report.

Cheap Seats Daily: Caps and Zimmerman Live Another Day

That's how Caps' play-by-play man Steve Kolbe ended his awesome call of David Steckel's game winner last night from Pittsburgh.
Nothing like OT playoff hockey on the radio.
