Final: Geraldo 100 / Olbermann 0

So here's one I missed over the holidays -- Geraldo Rivera in Orlando threatening to beat up Keith Olbermann.

Geraldo was visiting with an Orlando morning radio show just before Christmas, when they asked him about the time he made international headlines for disclosing information about troops in Iraq. Geraldo says the incident was blown out of proportion, largely Olbermann. Geraldo then began mumbling semi-audible names, seemingly meant to describe Olbermann: "midget ... punk ... slimeball."

Then, with prodding, Geraldo went further, leaving no doubt about what he was saying. He called Olbermann a coward -- specifically a "pussy" who wouldn't walk across the street against the red light."

He then said he was ready to fight him, saying: "I would make a pizza out of him."

Before leaving the topic, Geraldo offered an example of a TV talker who's a "real man" ... Montel Williams.

Geraldo has his "moments" - but I like him (as the song goes) - "More Today than Yesterday."
