I love this guy, even though it's weird to be so excited about.. software... :p 

Would you see him selling cars? MAN that'd be awesome!! Remember Crazy Earl from Weird Al Yankovic's UHF: "People come to me and say, Hey, WHERE DID YOU GET ALL THOSE CARS!!! I tell you what, if nobody comes down here and buys me a car in the next hour, I'M GONNA CLUB THIS SEAL! I'M GONNA CLUB A BABY SEAL TO MAKE A BETTER DEAL! You know I'll do it, cause I'm crazy!"

Hahaha I love this line :)  Ballmer could have been a coach, but he's made to be visible :)

I think he should leave MS and become a basketball coach. Someone with ADD has no right to be the head of one of the biggest companies in the world. He probably can't concentrate on one thing more than 5 seconds. Its good to see someone who is excited about a product, but Bill Gates was excited without looking like he's going to have a heart attack.

Ballmer reminds me of this character I saw on a recent Law and Order. They guy was a schizophrenic roller skater street performer. Even when they had him in the interrogation room he couldn't sit still. lol

His head would make a nice basketball. It's about the correct shape and size.

If not for microsoft i think he would be a nut in a huge fruitcake storage and when allowed to get out of his jacket he might run a fantasy baseball league.

Seriously i thinks its cool people can get excited about the things they like but to take this guy serious is almost like being a bigger nut yourself.

I think he is more of a cheerleader than a coach in that vid

Not that I don't love me some Ballmer, but where is the news here? Did Tom's do an interview, or was this something he just said recently and you stuck a new quote at the end of several paragraphs?

I wonder if he'd be paired with Isiah Thomas as GM.

Just watch that video and tell me Ballmer isn't the missing link in human evolution. You can't, because he totally is.

Really missing it's monkey(*) dance - NOT
It makes you think twice, before sinking one more cent in m$, just to make this fat clown richer (of course it loves it's ca$h-cow) - mr. "yummy" (have you checked you're tongue lately? it's wearing off fa$t) and m$ fankiddies are, of course, excluded.

*: my excuses to all monkeys, they are intelligent beings

Oh, he's such a great leader, and a visionary: "There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance"

And this is not a reaction, and an attitude worth of a Microsoft CEO:

Either he's really out of touch with the reality, or he's just talking for the gullible ...

Yeah, because Jobb's opinions on netbooks have been completely spot on.
