Different celebs have different reactions to being name-checked in songs. Halle Berry loves it. Lindsay Lohan...did not love it. But Bob Costas is with Halle. He looooooooves it.

When talk turned to Jay-Z (who recently started Roc Nation Sports), the MLB Now commentator explained who his favorite rapper is:  "I have got to give props to Ludacris because, although he's not the only one, I think he was the first one to name-check me."

And then he busts into a straight-faced recital of the "Hip Hop Quotables" lyrics off Luda's 2003 album Chicken-n-Beer. To say the least, it's amazing.

For reference, the actual song:

You give props to Luda, Bob. We give props to you.
