Rome Animated: “Stick-um”

Van Smack is known for his sports “hot” takes and commentary. He has built a long illustrious career by finding the most interesting stories and offering a unique perspective on them.

To immortalize the best takes and rants that Jim brings to the table, we present: Rome Animated, a series featuring those sports takes in cartoon form.

The premier episode of Rome Animated features CBS Sports Radio host Jim breaking down the “Stick-um” situation involving Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard.

Check out this instant classic Jim Rome rant.
