On Monday night, Zach Klein, the sports director at WSB-TV in Atlanta, paid tribute to actor Robin Williams, who died that day.
Klein did a nice job slipping in multiple references to movies and TV shows starring Williams.
There is an added bonus for Kansas City fans in the following video. During a cutaway to a segment on a charity fantasy football draft, the Braves’ Freddie Freeman was asked who he would take with a first-round pick.
Freeman said either the Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles or LeSean McCoy of the Eagles. There was even a clip of Charles.

A few of the references were overt, but some you may miss.
