is there a reason nobody on these boards snips quotes rather than continue to quote whole posts? especially when you're responding within seconds of each other? just curious.
screaming quigs shouldve been the first to go. what a one-trick pony. how could he not know he was being too loud? or better yet, how did he get this far?
the williams who was voted off was the second worst, but i wouldve given him a second chance just to make sure. his problem wasnt just his stammering and the butcher job on the hockey highlight but his complete and utter lack of charisma.
the comedian who went last wasnt too impressive. he also went overboard. too many jokes. not particularly good deliveyr on them. needs to tone down his act and try to be a little more personable.
the asian jewish stanford kid has the best delivery (probably because at stanford, hes used to live broadcasting and was less nervous) but his writing was a little on the bland side for me.
the first one probably had the best total package. he had the second best delivery, the second or third best writing and some personality but the winner of the nite has to be
the chick. she was also too stammery for tv (only 4th out of the 6)but easily had the best writing. just the right mix of humor and actually has a personality.
my gf who isnt a sports fan but sees plenty of espn because of me didnt like her because she talked to slow and stammered to much, and muched preferred the comedian. of course, we're usually snobby fast-talking new yorkers who cant stand how slow the rest of you speak, so thats where shes coming from.
as for people bashing sportscenter comedy. the comedy is NECESSARY. so is the insight. baseball tonight = mostly insight. sportcenter = hightlights and comedy. espnews = more highlights, less comedy. (but still some) don't you guys remember the glory days of olberman,patrick, and kilborn?
sure stuart scott has become a gross exaggeration of himself, but so what? its still amusing to listen to what a wigger he is.
espn would never have survived if sportscenter wasnt funny.
