Ryan is on the phone right now and I am again having one of those "what kind of website is this!!?!?!?!?" moments.

This is insane!!!  Just the fact that things got this far just by asking a simple little question to Ice T is awesome. Now I have to go watch Hood Leprechaun! If it's not the bombcast, anything Ice T would do would be cool!

This is either gonna be the best podcast ever or the most awkward podcast ever, wonder if Jeff and Ryan will act any differently when Ice-T is there. Ice-T quicklook? of Def Jam!?

You know your website has made it big when Ice-T acknowledges it through Twitter.

Jeff and Ryan aren't "famous". And even if they were, there's a HUGE difference between the Giant Bomb guys and fucking Ice-T.

I'm going to bet that it's only his publicist/manager/agent/whatever on the phone. Still, that publicist/manager/agent/whatever is going to be talking about arranging Ice-T himself to do something on giantbomb.com . Which is totally awesome.
 
EDIT: Well, Ice's twitter suggests it was Ice himself on the phone. I'm very happy that I was wrong. Now we all have to pray that someone had the sense to point a video camera at Ryan while it was happening.

I mean, yeah, Ice-T is very unlikely to handle this kind of stuff himself, but the fact it's even gotten this far is...wow.

Well pull the plug on this site it had a good run. Nothing will top this so after Ice-T leaves pull the plug. Always go out on a high note.

Seriously, hope Jeff and crew don't act black to him.  Jeff acted black to that black guy in that one video recently.  Was sad.  Hope he doesn't show his fear of black people to everyone by suddenly becoming G.  
 
It was the Black Ops video.  The black guy with the big belt.

This isn't about that.  The Giant Bomb staff has a great affection for the music of Ice-T, and from what I'm to understand, they've never actually met the dood.  This is like me meeting Michael Jordan - it's kind of a "OH SHIT I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN" type of thing.  It's cool to see this happening for the guys, and moreover, it wouldn't have come around if the OP hadn't asked Ice-T about the whole thing.  The community is just as responsible for this coming about as Giant Bomb is. 
 
Also....FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!

I'll bet anything they talked to the man himself.  I wouldn't expect Ice-T to be that kind of guy, especially when he can see that the fans of the site are incredibly fervent about getting him on here!

To be fair, they act like that around each other all the time. haha

My head is spinning right now. 
 
I wonder if they filmed any of the phone call and/or reaction.  I want to see the excitement.

The guys were saying that they may have peaked at the PAX livecast. Ice T on the bombcast will blow that out of the water. John V's Ice T was good, Ice T's Ice T will be better!
