Pardon the Interruption Offers a Moment of Silence for the Nuggets

On the April 29 edition of ESPN's Pardon the Interruption, Michael Wilbon, who co-hosts the yakfest with Tony Kornheiser, requested a moment of silence for the Denver Nuggets after the team was swept from the playoffs in four games by the Los Angeles Lakers. A nanosecond later, the quiet was shattered by a single, sustained "Booooo!"

Seldom has silence spoken so loudly. -- Michael Roberts
