The 98.7 Arizona Sports listening community was on display Thursday when one fan caught the attention of the radio station’s afternoon show Burns & Gambo and the Phoenix Suns. 

With the Suns set to take on the Sacramento Kings Thursday night, the father of 21-year-old Dakoda Roman posted a video of his son doing the classic Burns & Gambo “Bad news for…” bit. 

Dakoda’s passion was noticed by the Suns, who invited him and his father to their game against the Kings. When 98.7 afternoon hosts Dave Burns and John Gambadoro saw the video, they asked Dakoda to repeat the rallying cry again on-air, which he eagerly did. 

“Dakoda and I, we really started doing it this season,” said Dakoda’s father Jason Roman. “He likes to wear all the Suns gear for every Suns game. Wants to wear his Suns gear to show support.”

Dakoda and his father attended the game and were treated to a Suns victory, proving the rallying cry true, Thursday night was bad news for the Kings.
