David Letterman的Top ten list,是在美國CBS電視台廣受歡迎的節目之一,好像已經作了十幾年,專門拿各種人物和事件來開玩笑,博君一笑。最近他也針對NBA裁判Tim Donaghy吹黑哨的事件來了這麼一段:

Top Ten Signs A Referee Is Fixing Games

10. He leads the league in blocked shots
9. When talking about the Spurs, he says "we"

7. He's drawing up plays
6. Befores tipoff, scoreboard reads 58 to nothing
5. Teams have scored a record number of two-pointers, three-pointers and eight pointers
4. Tossed one of the other officials out of the game

2. Miami Heat hasn't lost a game since Shaq promised to help the referee's fat son

Letterman是印第安那州人,本身也是印州Ball State University畢業的,電視生涯從印第安那發跡,最後才殺進紐約,所以印象中他特別喜歡拿印第安那大學前教練Bob Knight和Purdue大學前教頭Gene Keady來開玩笑。下面這一段也蠻有趣的:
