Bob Pompeani is a beast on the dance floor.

Bob Pompeani is KDKA’s sports god.

Bob Pompeani is a nice guy with a lovely family.

Thanks to Randy Baumann, who recorded this video, we now know that Bob Pompeani can GET HIS FREAK ON.

Pretty sure he busted out The Carlton at :09.

And I don’t know what he’s doing at :20, but I love it and I name it The Pomp.

That right there, Internet, is what it looks like when you “dance like no one’s watching.”

    I’m hoping the lady with the long brown hair is Mrs Pomp .
    ‘Cause if I danced like that with a lady that pretty who was not my wife I’d get “The Look ” the rest of the evening , and dead silence on the way home .

    Why did he edit out the beginning when Pomp came running into the room with the blind girl from Fame and screamed “Hey, hey! Wats this I see? I thought this was a party. LETS DANCE!”

    Am I the only one that believes he comes across as a pompous a$$ most of the time.

    a few years ago, I attended a black-tie benefit at the zoo.

    sally wiggin was there — and, looked hawter than I could ever imagine. hawwwwwwww-t. who knew?

    bob was there as well — and, if you think that his dance moves are super sweet here, you should have seen what I saw that night.

    talk about trashed.

    AND, the kicker…if I recall correctly (I was a little trashed as well)….he was wearing tux shorts.

    TUX SHORTS, people.

    it was 110 degrees that night and I thought to myself, “wow….who knew that tux shorts existed?”

    and, “who knew pompeani could ever get so trashed, he’d do the carlton on that table top?”

    and, “can my girlfriend drive my sorry ass home?”

    true story.

    He looks right at the camera and points to it at the end of the clip. He can never say that he had no idea he was being filmed.

    Monty, did he actually do that or do you just love yourself some Kevin Bacon?

    Always thought he was kind of a jag….the dance moves prove otherwise….

    Excellent Footloose reference Monty!

    Like all of us, he can be a jag (or pompous ass). I’ve run into him over the years when he was just a plain old jerk, but then on other occasions, you would have thought I was an old friend. We all have our moments.

    Supposedly he was there when I went to PPC/U, but I have absolutely no recollection of him at all. Dennis Miller, sure. Tom McMillan, who is a VP with the Penguins now, absolutely. I even knew a guy on the baseball team who is now a big deal at Nike.

    Pompeani? He was there?

    I’m not trying to be a jagoff, I just literally have no recollection of even being in a class together, and my degree is in J&C. Bottom line: I cannot weigh in on the Pompous-ani question.

    All I wish is that on the Sunday night shout show he would quit answering his own questions before anyone else can.
