is looking to decide just this very question. Other than the occasional Kenny Mayne (when he isn't repeating old shtick) and Chris Mortenson (on a good day), there isn't an ESPN personality I can tolerate for more than 15 seconds.
Around the Horn is the most god-awful debate show and PTI isn't all that much better. Baseball Tonight is 20 minutes of Yankee/Red Sox worship, NBA 2nite is anchored and staffed by P-Diddy wannabes and the world's tallest hippy, and NFL countdown figured Berman wasn't annoying enough and added pimp/cokehead Mike Irvin.
Probably the only show that never got on my nerves was the NHL spotlight show, since I never cared enough to watch it.
I cannot stand ESPN anymore ..
the list is quite long actually ..
Red Sox/Yankees shoved down our throat constantly ..
If there is a game on ESPN, you can almost rest assured it is one of those two teams, and god forbid the weeks that they play each other. When that happens, you can pretty much forget about getting any sports news what so ever. I actually dispise the East coast teams even more, because of this. Before they were just bearable. You read the box scores and moved on. Not any more. It is almost to the point that I am thinking about blocking ESPN on my tube.
The personalities ..
Gammons ... Cannot stand with a passion.
"Hey Peter, what do you think of the Brewers chances this year?" ... "Er ummm err um" ( insert drool) .... "er ummmm err ummm ... RED SOX" ... "Er ummm err um Yankees " ... "Er ummm err um .. A's ... " somebody give the man a spit rag already.
Steven A Smith ... quite frankly I hope your show lasts no longer than one week. What garbage is this. Who really cares what this screamer thinks .
Skip Bayless ... Scum! ... (any other words to describe him, would be a waste of oxygen)
Berman ... I want to shove a stick up his arse, while screaming "Back, Back, Back" ....
The list of horrible personalities is endless ..
I would just like to thank ESPN for doing everything in their power to DESTROY sports for sports fans...
Nobody cares about shooting a pool ball into a boot.
Nobody cares about dogs jumping into water.
Nobody cares about how quickly somebody can cut thru wood with a chain saw. ...
when the **** did this become ..... Sport!
Oh and BTW ... ESPN ...
I now hate Danika Patrick ... I don't know why. She has never done anything (which has alot to do with it) .. but yet there she is every Weekend ... Danika .. Danika .. Danika ... I hope she never wins a thing. Zip none nada. Is it her fault? Probably not ....
Blame ESPN ..
