    Hannah Storm will be the co-anchor for a new live morning edition of SportsCenter on ESPN. I'd rather see the repeats of the late SportsCenter from the previous night.</a>

    This has positive implications if it means The Deuce will also pick up some of the feed and shitcan some or all of First Take. Less Bayless et al would be a wonderful thing.

    It doesn't look as though that will be the case, but at least it gives us an option other than a repeat of a SportsCenter you might have seen the night before or a live First Take you can't bear to watch the first time.

    From the linked story: "Interestingly, the revamped SportsCenters will compete against the ESPN2 morning block of Mike & Mike In the Morning and First Take."

    Considering some of the people who do the late-night SportsCenter, I'd rather not see that particular endless cycle of reruns. If this means the ratio of information to catchphrases increases, it's a good thing.

    Or a repeat of a SportsCenter you can't bear to watch the first time. :)

    I would take 100 boo-yahs, 1000 back, back, back, back, backs over 10 seconds of Hannah Storm. Every time.

    You realize that theory can be tested, right? :D

    And I'd be a willing participant. She's uninteresting, unoriginal, boring, bland, and adds nothing to anything she's ever been on.

    Albert Belle will be so pleased.

    Can't believe I forgot that category, because it's the one I fall into. I can't stand SportsCenter anymore.

    I'd rather see a half hour of the heavy set lady from ESPN Deportes give us soccer scores.

    I have never gotten the Hannah Storm thing.

    She won't make the show any less watchable than it is now.
