You could tell he was embarrased when Regis suggested she sit on his lap, and she was like maybe he'll get us out of this.

He shoots, he scores
Yao Ming makes points on New York book tour

NEW YORK -- "Yao? Would you like a little makeup?"

A shrug.

"How about we powder you up a bit before you go on?"

A nod.

Leaving a tiny dressing room, Yao Ming, the Houston Rocket's 7-foot-6 All-Star center, follows a stage assistant across a hall and into an even smaller area. He squats in a chair as the assistant dabs powder on his face.

"All set," she says.

Yao stands to follow another assistant. Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa are nearly done with John Goodman. Yao is next. Earlier, he worried that the syndicated morning show hosts weren't aware of his size. Yao's concern was that the guest chair wouldn't hold his 295-pound frame.

Don't worry, someone says, John Goodman is sitting in it now. You should be just fine.

After a commercial break and some banter between Philbin and Ripa, it's showtime.

"Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Yao Ming!"

Yao walks onto the set, smiles and gives a nervous wave to the audience.

Showtime, indeed.

Start spreading the news...

A few signs that you've made it:

The 295 lb reference is old news. That was his weight when he first came into the NBA in 2002.

seriously man, he should have said "come to papa", it would've been interesting to see how Ripa would've reacted.

Seeing Yao wearing trackpants, it will be quite hard to hide.
