I am utterly fed-up with Stuart Scott. His desparate attempts to be black actually make me feel sorry for him. I can picture him as a kid being teased by everyone, shouting "Whaz up, G" and "Big Ups to all my homies" trying to emulate pop culture.
I met him, Micheal Irvin and Sean Salisbury at a bar I worked at during the Super Bowl in Jacksonville. I was also working for ESPN Radio in Jax at the time. Let me tell you, he is even more annoying in person. And watching him trying to use his standing to pick up women was absolutely classic. He tried to be cool and say things like "Yeah, me and MJ are real tight" and "I get free tickets to any event I want." Funny thing was most of the woman saw right through it and were just near him to talk to Irvin, who is hilarious.
They hung around after last call and I had a few beers after work and ended up talking to them and it some how came up where they asked me who my favorite ESPN anchor was. I said, half jokingly, "Not you." He couldn't tell if I was serious or not, it was great. I followed that up with, "Kilborn or Olberman, there not fake, they are just themselves" You should have seen his face.
I swear I just want to give him a little rap on the side of the head to try and straighten up that eye thing for him.
He is so blatently fake and trying way to hard. I can imagine athletes laughing at him in front and behind his back, talking about his "Street Cred."
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today
If that's OK
And I can go on, and on, and on...
But who cares?
