Overly Sensitive Howard Stern Calls Jeff Van Gundy a "Douche Bag"

Anybody who has watched Jeff Van Gundy broadcast an NBA game knows that over-the-top, borderline overreaction to certain ancillary aspects of the game (maybe a minor rules interpretation or the antics of a mascot) are part of his "gimmick," if you will.

If Jeff Van Gundy were a heel WWE manager, part of his methodology of getting under your skin would be to impose his version of common sense on the viewing audience. It's what he does, and anyone who's watched it enough or has talked to Jeff Van Gundy in person knows that a big part of it is "just him having a little bit of fun."

Well, clearly, Howard Stern doesn't see the humor in Van Gundy's opinions, specifically his views on the unwritten rules of having a front row seat at an NBA game.
