A series of short rants and raves on various topics in sports. For your perusal.
Playoff baseball on TBS has got to stop. MLB is just shooting themselves in the foot by partnering with Turnervision for this monstrosity that they call a broadcast. Chip Caray can’t tell a hit from an out, and Dick Stockton is like 90 years old. In protest and mock jest of their pseudo-competition, ESPN should compile all of Caray’s and Stockton’s flubs at the end of the night and play them in rapid-fire succession, meshing a “Boom goes the dynamite!” track between each faux pas. Or just devote the entire Not Top Ten to them.
How come TBS hasn’t cranked up How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days for a two-week marathon run yet? They’ve got the perfect lead-in with their A-Rod/Kate Hudson lovefest each night, and what better way to capture the female demographic, am I right? To be honest, I’m a little surprised that Alex and Kate are still together. Apparently he hasn’t figured out that she doesn’t have boobs, and she hasn’t realized that he’s a total douchebag. Where’s Madonna in all this, anyways? This relationship they have going on is starting to resemble Jim and Pam. We need some fire.
