    A belated holiday gift to sports fans everyone from ESPN if this is true.

    Does this mean Screamin A. will go back to writing more for the Inky?

    When's ESPN gonna learn, this "talk-show" format doesn't really work for sports (see Mike Lupica's show). Or maybe it can work, just stop putting fucktards (thanks SportsJournalists.com for introducing this wonderful word to me) as the hosts.
  5. Damn, how will ESPN make up the loss in ratings. Although I guess they could run a test pattern and break even.

    SAS knows his pro football. Will the networks start a bidding war? :D

    maybe BET will do football.
    SAS, Deon, Irvin & Sharpe. Gumbel could be studio host

    Gumbel enunciates way too well and talks much too quietly to be thrown in with that bunch.

    Steven A — bye, bye. He actually wasn't that bad about five years ago or so when he was on FOX.

    A couple years ago I had the pleasure of sitting next to SAS when the team I covered traveled to Philly. He plops down in the seat next to me, and I know he knows my boss so I figure I'll make some small talk. As I'm looking through all the pre-game notes and program on the counter, there's one of those little dead beetles that look like ladybugs and are real prevalent in the fall/early winter in the colder climates. It's lying upside down on the counter. It's pretty much right between us, so to break the ice, I kiddingly say "Is this your dead bug or mine?" SAS, seemingly in his own little world, says: "Huh? No, it's not mine" as if he thought the question was totally serious.

    We never exchanged another word the whole game. I told a friend this story and now every time I see him, one of the first things he says is: "Huh?"
  12. I'm sure this will be wildly unpopular here, but I had been catching QF semi-regularly as of late, and mostly enjoyed it.
    SAS often had informed guests, and he was tolerable when not screaming.
    I found a lot of the discussions centering on racial/sociological issues to be very interesting.
    Fire away.
