Bob Costas Channels His Inner Nelly Ahead of 2017 Winter Classic

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistJanuary 2, 2017

Bob Costas is among the best when it comes to sports broadcasting, but in terms of hip-hop, he's no Nelly.

Leading into Monday's Winter Classic between the Chicago Blackhawks and the St. Louis Blues at Busch Stadium, Costas segued into a hype video by dropping some bars. More specifically, he tried to introduce Nelly by quoting the rapper's "Hot in Herre."

It went pretty much how you'd expect.
