thats the thing. SC is no longer funny. the older guys (kilborn, Patrick, Olberman) we funny without being annoying. everyone else is obviously just trying too hard and gets on my nerves

Every Time i see Stuart Scott i want to change the channel. he tries so hard to be ghetto, but he doesnt even come close to pulling it off. i guarentee that all the black athletes that he interviews laugh at him behind his back because they realize how big of a fake he is. the guy is garbage and its a shame that he is the best that ESPN can come up with. there is a big diference between having a personality and being obnoxious. Scott crossed that line around the 15,000th Boo Yah!!! :-t

Fat white dude shoulda left ...the big black one probably next.

--> Fat white one studdered and put too much energy into it to the point you could barely understand him.
---> Black guy that was eliminated had very little life to him.

The young kid was the best one. Almost flawless.

Quigly was the worst one by far. He couldn't even say a sentence without messing up! Do you really want him giving you your sports every day?

First of all - I think its a great concept for ESPN to put a "reality - contestant" show on a dead night. I guarantee they had a huge share of the overnight nielsens. If you like those type of shows or not, they are the ones getting the viewers. Besides, how many of us would love to be an ESPN anchor - how cool is that?

After watching the show last night I came to the realization that there are two groups who have made it this far - about half who have a realistic shot at it, the others will just be episode eaters. Obviously some people are overmatched, and will be near the first to go. I think this contest could probably have started out with 6-8 competitors, but then ESPN would rather have a 12 episode winning show than a 6-8 episode show, right? Regardless...

There was no way Hall should have gotten America's vote. Everyone who watched the show collectively gasped and wondered what the hell the rest of America was watching when he was given that vote.

Maybe the Tigers should start up a "Who Wants to be a MLB Pitcher" contest to get the crowd more involved during dead nights - AKA home games not involving the Yankees.

:-o *prepares for the flak cornbread is about to fire*

I would certainly pay to get the chance to pitch at, er, I mean to some players. When does Juan Gone come to town? I wonder if he does a good Sammy Sosa beanball impersonation?

I discussed the same stuff at the football site:

http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/foru ... hp?t=57926

Quigs was definitely the worst, Hall was definitely the best. I bet next week either/both of these will happen:

1) The second six will have seen what to do and what not to do so they will be far better than the first six.

2) ESPN will change their voting so that the person you want to win will get your vote instead of the person you want to cut.

Too many people watch American Idol to be confused with a new style of doing things... :-B
