ESPN Radio

Postby baship20 » 07 Sep 2006, 21:10

Anyone listen to ESPN radio?

I leave it on at the office but I can barely stand it.

All it is one ESPN's personality after another interviewing each other and trying to come out with the strongest opinions no matter how ridiculous. Its so incestious- Mike and Mike will have a guest on and then Dan Patrick will talk about what was said on their show and then have another ESPN employee on to react to that and then Erik Kuesalis or whatever will discuss what that ESPN guy said...all the while pimpin ESPN products right and left, especially the damn phone service. If you need to manage your fanasty team from your cell phone you need to get your damn priorties straight.

Erik Kuesalis "Three Strikes and I'm Out" is the gayest shitck I've ever heard...Out of what?- The Damn Closet perhaps? It makes me so uncomfortable.

Eric Karabell is potentially the biggest friggin dork whose name isn't Alan Colmes.

Colin Cowherd is the only guy I like on there.

I hate Colin Cowherd, because his whole schtick is saying something is absolute fact, and if anyone disagrees, there is no chance for a rebutal, it's *click." Plus, he fawns at the feet of Derek Jeter, who he calls the best player in the game today (when I can think of a few off-hand that are better...one on his own team), and his retarded belief that baseball players must be famous to make the Hall-of-Fame, meaning Jose Canseco should be in.

I listen to the 2pm hour of The Dan Patrick show just because he has Keith Olbermann with him and it reminds of the glory days of Sportscenter.

The other shows are garbage, IMO, with the exception being The V Show, which is hosted by Jim Valvano's brother. I have caught it a few times late at night and thought it was good. I cant stand Mike & Mike, Cowherd is a douche and the show after DP blows as well.

I enjoyed Cowherd's show when it first came on, but it is the same schtick every day. I did enjoy the fact that a national guy would talk about college football when all the other gasbags were talking Yankees/Red Sox. The novelty has worn off.

He seems to crack himself up with his stupid old man voice.

I used to be a fan of All Night With Todd Wright back in my crack smoking errr insomniac days, but they fired him.

Kueslias is the most insufferable of the group.

I hate the Cow Douche with a passion. He is basically an NFL fan who saw college football as an untapped segment of the national market. In my opinion, the dude sees the game through the eyes of an NFL fan, and doesn't get the concept of being passionate about a school and the tradition that comes with it. I hated when ragged on UVA for still wearing ties to the game, and didn't seem to get that 95% of the SEC still does that.

Cow Douche bugs me ten times more than Dan Shanoff ever did. He's almost Skip Bayless to me

Not that I don't agree with you, but there is no such thing as an unprovoked shot at UVA fans.

I read that a while ago. It seems like every fucking segment is exactly like that. The dude is a complete dumb fuck 90% of the time. What's worse is the fact that ESPN (in their INFINITE wisdom) is giving the dude more and more air time on TV. First it was the Sunday around the country segment, then it was the College World Series, then it was the FSU Miami game. Seriously, there isn't one other guy they could bring in for that game? Seriously!?! Fuck, I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

If you like Colin Cowherd, then you and I have nothing to say to each other.

(I guess that answers my question "Who in the hell actually likes this guy?" though.)

I enjoyed the rest of your rant, but umm... what? Ole Miss is 95% of the SEC now?

I don't mind Cowherd, though I listen in moderation so maybe I just haven't gotten sick of his schtick. Regardless, he's still better than 90% of the sports talk hosts I've heard.

I've been to games at Georgia, Alabama and Ole Miss, so its 100% of my personal experience.

FWIW, at Ole Miss, it's commonly accepted to wear ties. With Alabama, at least, wearing ties is a symbol of fratasticness
