Minnesota Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve delivers heartfelt message to Holly Rowe
During the Minnesota Lynx-Los Angeles Sparks game on Tuesday night, ESPN’s Holly Rowe was doing a sideline interview with Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve, and it turned into a very touching message from Reeve to Rowe, as Rowe has been battling breast cancer. This was terrific:
Skip Bayless makes his debut on FS1… and it’s like he never left ESPN
So, Skip Bayless’ new show Undisputed on FS1 might as well be called Second Take. The show made its debut on Tuesday. Everything about it seems exactly like First Take, except there’s an FS1 logo instead of an ESPN logo, and it’s Shannon Sharpe yelling things at Bayless instead of Stephen A. Smith yelling things at Bayless.
Here’s Skip’s opening, which was kind of creepy if you ask me:
I mean, look at everything about this… it’s First Take all over again:
You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that viewership for Undisputed went down 45% from day one to day two.
Announcer has to explain to viewers that the Rice-Army game is delayed due to mule poop
CBS Sports Network’s Ben Holden was put in a position he probably never expected to be in on Saturday, when he had to offer an explanation for why the Rice-Army football game was in a delay: Mule crap.
“So, we are delayed here. I better be careful how I say this…”
Fox’s Joel Klatt goes off about targeting during BYU-Utah broadcast
The BYU Cougars were called for targeting on consecutive plays in Saturday night’s 20-19 loss to the Utah Utes, resulting in two of their important defensive players being ejected from the game. Fox analyst and former University of Colorado quarterback Joel Klatt especially hated the first call, saying, “That’s terrible. That’s frustrating. That’s frustrating for college football fans”. Also, BYU head coach Kalani Sitake got flagged for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after arguing the call.
First, here are video replays of the play, with Klatt breaking it down:
And then the referee explains how it’s indeed targeting, which draws Klatt’s “terrible” and “frustrating” comments:
Then the next targeting and ejection, to which Klatt says, “Guys, we’ve gotta do something about this in college football. The ejection attached to the targeting foul is not helping.”
Lee Corso wears a big ol’ Tennessee-themed racing helmet
ESPN’s College Gameday was at Bristol Motor Speedway for the Tennessee-Virginia Tech game on Saturday, and for Lee Corso’s picks, he pulled out a Tennessee-themed oversized football/racing helmet — while sitting next to Dale Earnhardt Jr. — to celebrate the game’s unique setting. And to please all of the Vols fans outside the College Gameday set, of course.
