EXCERPT:

ROKER: "You know, it's one of these things. And folks on Twitter have been, first of all, 'Why is NBC putting him out there?' I volunteered to come out here. This is what I do.

As much as I love the weather, I love NBC, I'm not going to risk my life for it. Secondly, 'Well, he’s too old to be doing this.' Well, hey, guess what? Screw you!
(Laughter)
Try to keep up. Keep up. Okay?"

ROKER: "These young punks! I will drop them like a bag of dirt!"
