Storm And Elliott To Host Rose Bowl Parade on ESPN

I can’t remember the last time I caught the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day, but ESPN thinks it’s important enough to send their two morning Sports Center hosts to cover the event. Hannah Storm and Josh Elliott will be your hosts for the pomp and circumstance starting at 11am on New Year’s […]

Cris Carter Sees No Reason To Stop Piling On The Cowboys

Cris Carter hasn’t been making any friends in Dallas, and probably won’t be doing so anytime soon. The ESPN analyst was caught a week ago saying that a Cowboys’ Playoff run would be a “a discredit to team sports” and to “team unity”, but he added a final parting shot to T.O. on Mike and […]

Jeanne Zelasko Trying To Become First Female MLB PxPer

I personally thought that the MLB on FOX pregame show was just about the biggest waste of time on television, and was extremely happy when they decided to drop it for this year. It wasn’t because of any one person, but rather all parties involved were just not right for a Studio show. With that […]

Your NBA Announcing Schedule For The Week Of 12/29

Your NFL Wild Card Announcing Schedule

Obviously this is the quickest announcing schedule ever, because of there only being four games, but I thought you’d still like to see who’s calling which game and where. The Wild Card Weekend features some great matchups, and will even mark the first time that the Falcons and Cardinals played on NBC since 1997. I’m […]

Awkward High Fiving Gets Taken To A Whole New Level

We don’t know everything about rich, old white people, but what we do know is that they don’t know how to successfully complete a high five. Philly fans and owners were obviously happy during last evenings dismantling of the Cowboys, but showing your glee by palming your wife in the face, isn’t really the best […]

Here, we have The Bowl That No One Wants To Watch, with teams only in the game because the Big XII and SEC didn’t have enough bowl eligible teams to send a 6-6 joke each to Shreveport. Oof.
