Remember Teddy Dupay from the 2000 National Title Game Florida Gators? The guy that was thrown out for allegedly gambling on sports?
We bet you've been wondering where he's been the last 10 years.
Allow him to reintroduce himself:
You wanna talk about about squeezing first and asking questions last. Check out Conan O'Brien just droppin' bows on NBC during Tuesday's Tonight Show.
Go straight to 2:00:
Gotta love the idea of NBC suits petting their cats Dr. Claw-style and smashing glass while watching this episode on their own air.
Update: He really outdid himself Wednesday night. It's just an hour of droppin' bows on NBA at this point. Enjoy it while it lasts because next week is rumored to be his finale:

Alright, we milked that about as long as we could. Without further adieu, your Realest of the Decade is none other than the Tru Warier, Ron Artest:
There have been some insane acts of reality in the past decade but there's just no one that delivered year-in year-out like Artest. He entered the decade just another street-tough rookie from the Queens projects; ten years later, he's the craziest mofo in NBA history.
Let's take a look back at his timeline since 2000, with the help of LA Sports Central:
June 13, 2001: During a pickup game, broke two of Michael Jordan's ribs. Said Artest: "I read it in the paper and was like, 'Man, Mike's ribs got broke. How'd his ribs get broke?'"
Jan 4, 2003: Suspended three games and fined $35,000 for smashing video equipment after a loss to the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
Jan. 30, 2003: Suspended four games after confrontation with Heat coach Pat Riley on the sidelines during the game, then flipping the fans in Miami "the bird."
Feb. 26, 2003: Suspended one game by Pacers for smashing a framed picture of himself in Conseco Fieldhouse.
March 20, 2003: Suspended two games for flagrant foul on Celtics forward Paul Pierce that occurred five seconds into the game. It was his eighth flagrant foul of the season.
April 3, 2003: Fined $20,000 for making an obscene gesture to the crowd in Cleveland.
Feb. 16, 2004: Marked his first All-Star appearance by continually changing shoes during the game in the hopes of getting a shoe contract.
May 25, 2004: Fined $10,000 for making an obscene gesture during Eastern Conference Finals against the Pistons (are you seeing a trend here?).
Nov. 9-10, 2004: Benched for two games after asking for time off to promote the release of his upcoming rap album.
Nov. 19, 2004: Ya'll already know:
Oct. 2005: Appeared on the cover of the December issue of Penthouse. In the interview, Artest said he wanted to box Ben Wallace on pay-per-view.
Dec. 10, 2005: In an interview with the Indianapolis Star, Artest suggests the Pacers trade him, saying he wouldn't mind coming off the bench for LeBron James.
Jan. 1, 2006: Artest, tells the New York Post that his New Year's resolution is to: "Teach math classes in elementary schools throughout the country. And, of course, I want to sell 10 million records."
July 7, 2009: ... How about this for a Flip McTwist? After beef with Kobe in the playoffs, Artest signs with the Lakers for five years. Opts to wear #37 in honor of Michael Jackson, whose album "Thriller" was the top-selling record for 37 consecutive weeks - he explains he is "hoodalizing" the number.
Aug. 2009: While traveling through China, gives an impoverished kid a $45,000 diamond watch for his education.
Nov. 2009: Artest shows up on Jimmy Kimmel in only his boxers. Why? Because he was running late, of course.
Dec. 2009: Artest claims "I used to drink Hennesy at halftime."
We can't wait to see what Artest is doing in 2020. Any guesses???
