    ... Rick Reilly?

    He's anchoring the show with Neil Everett right now. Is this a stunt (for a future column, perhaps?) or is he actually going to do this regularly?

    ESPN might as well get its money worth. For what he's getting paid he should be taking out the trash, washing windows and buying office supplies, too.

    He's done it before, and he's bad at it.

    Got off to a great start tonight by looking into the wrong camera for most of the opening two-shot on him and Everett.

    Perhaps he's recycling an earlier appearance.

    Provides him with an excuse to wear make-up.

    I saw that he did a very late night west coast sportscenter a few weeks ago...yikes, was an absolute train wreck. If there was a golf cliche to use, he used it. I don't think sportscenter devoted so much time to a non-tiger related golf tournament ever.

    Now maybe a few writers will begin to understand-- it's one thing to go on TV to opinion-spew, or even report...

    It's another to anchor.

    Anchoring is a difficult skill to make look easy, and it requires a lot of reps.
