VIDEO: Jay Bilas In His Pre-Jeezy Years Is An Instant Classic

Thanks to the combined powers of Matt Norlander and Timothy Burke (you may know him as Bubba Prog), footage of a young Jay Bilas being ... well, Jay Bilas, now exists on the Internet in embeddable form. And if you thought Bilas was getting cooler by the day before, prepare to have your mind blown.

Read the story behind the video here. For my personal highlight, read past the jump and check out the screencap.

Note that Bilas is deep in concentration here as he interviews a man who appears to be a young Spicoli.

This whole video is just wonderful and grows the legend of Bilas. Bless your hearts, Mr. Norlander and Burke. The Internet deserved this old footage. The whole thing is awkward, amazing and so completely high school.
