Simply Put I only watch BSPN only in the Mornings on Firstake. I’m a huge Skip Baylees Fan…
Other than that I only watch BSPN when they do the S. Training games and when the Braves are on Sunday Night
Personally I can’t stand Stuart Scott and Linda Cohn

I can’t believe you don’t watch ESPN because of *leggy* Hannah Storm..(LOL)…..that’s one of the few reasons I watch Sports Center in the morning….and Chris McKendry isn’t that bad either..(LOL).
February 7th, 20102:49 pm
Just don’t watch ESPN… No viewers will mean new talking heads will be needed
This just in, that’s not gonna happen. IMO, ESPN is too big and important that a boycott won’t be able to materialize. I haven’t heard many (if any) people say good things about Joe Morgan as a broadcaster, and yet he’s still around for some reason.
By the way, Jim and Pam are about to have their baby.
February 7th, 20102:50 pm
Don’t like the horse (Cohn). Son likes Bayless, made me a fan.

Oh quite definately…..they did themselves good when they brought her on board..*smile*
February 7th, 20102:54 pm
One hour of watching Boomer, Marino, and Sharpe will put you to sleep for hours. Four hours of those fellas? They might induce me into a deep sleep of Rip Van Winkle proportions
February 7th, 20102:55 pm
Maryland up 32-16 on UNC. Amazing thing is that this doesn’t even sound shocking anymore.
This makes me sad. Very sad.
February 7th, 20102:56 pm
T’Hawkin, did you do anything fun for your birthday?
February 7th, 20102:57 pm
Not to beat a dead Cohn, But Hannah really does it for me.
February 7th, 20102:58 pm
That was pretty mean, easy to hide behind your monicker.

Do you guys remember when ESPN used to show nothing but highlights? i remember back in like 7th grade watching 2 hrs of Sportscenter and i knew who won the sonic bullets game and i knew who won the royals indians game… it was highlight overload… with a couple stats under a box score at the end!
and the only time they talked about a persons personal life was in the boring sunday convorsation!
no one ever payed attention to that.. that was when i knew i could shower for school!
The true issue with espn is that its more about the tallent reading off the teleprompter than it is about the plays on the field!
JUST SHOW ME HIGHLIGHTS!!!
February 7th, 20103:06 pm
I had to be at work at 5AM this morning so I was a good boy last night. However I was at Opera Friday Night acting a fool. That club was shoulder-2-shoulder Thick!
I don’t plan on going all out tonight…I’m not a big fan of a 4 and a half hour exhibition known as the Stuper Bowl, Personally I like the AFC/NFC Championship games better because players play harder for their 2 week Vacation…
I will be at the Spot Tonight for a lil bit, but I’m ready for S. Training
Time to bump some old MC Hammer…!
February 7th, 20103:10 pm
Did Anyone Watch BSPN’s “Playmakers”? when it was hot on the streets?
Now that was a Damn Good Show, Too bad the NFL cried about it resulting in that show being cancelled
Everyone on here knows That I hate WhineBrenner and the Yankees but BSPN’s “The Bronx is Burning was a good show…
February 7th, 20103:11 pm
ESPN (along with ABC) was bought up by Disney in 1995. Content of Sportscenter moved towards personal interest malarkey shortly afterward.
February 7th, 20103:17 pm
Add to that BSPN’s Baseball Tonight was good til The Red Saucks Nation Crap started in 2004…
February 7th, 20103:21 pm
I Wonder Who Pete Rose Bet On In The Superbowl!
February 7th, 20103:30 pm
I’ll play jim rome:
“Superbowl is upon us and seriously–what a showdown! You have peyton “the clutch freak” taking on the guys from The Swamp…. Are you kidding me! What a freakin showdown and I’ll be scarfing down pizza pies and soaking some suds while watching a future hall of famer take on the swamp rats from lousiana. Please….can it get any more thrilling!”
That guy drive’s me nuts with all his corny sayings.
February 7th, 20103:39 pm
please! NO MORE ROME!!!! HAHAHA!
February 7th, 20103:45 pm
hmmmm only 26 Days till i see our boys! March 5th-9th in sunny Orlando!
Cant come soon enough!!!
February 7th, 20103:46 pm
Maryland’s got 86 points and a 23-point lead vs. UNC with 4-1/2 minutes left. That’s just … wow.
February 7th, 20103:50 pm
The doggies are winning the Puppy Bowl VI on Animal Planet. They are going wild.
February 7th, 20103:57 pm
jim rome says to eric in albany:
“Eric… too bad the jets,bills or giants aren’t in superbowl or you’d be riding the romey train right about now. Now, you’ll just be eating cheap ny pizza and blogging on a braves blog while peyton “the clutch freak” takes on the guys from the land of mardi gras. Hey– no offense, but dave o’brien isn’t exactly top notch entertainment. Come on… the guy talks more about burger joints and bbq than I can come up with totally awesome one-liners.”
February 7th, 20104:06 pm
Rome… Your a legend in your own mind…
i said LEGEND, IN,
Little do u know i dont have room in my braves filled heart for any other team than the braves!
i like to cheer on a few different teams but depends on the week i root on the jets only to make the playoffs only in the last 2-3 weeks! i cheer for the Gmen most of the yr but if they shoot themself in the leg i shift to cheers against them!
i really like the city of pittsburgh so i like the stillahs! 75% of the time!
i like the cowboys when they are a mess! i like the mess! and i like to pull for that mess to play well!
but i hated them all yr this yr cus they were… well… boring!
so bite me rome! haha

February 7th, 20104:16 pm
Fans of old school thrash metal (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, etc) might like the latest offering from Saviours – Accelerated Living. Its a fast-paced album that seems committed to re-living the glory days of early thrash. It has its good moments for sure, but they almost sound like a cover band stuck in ‘84 on this particular album. Its not a bad record, but a little deviation from the basic game plan would’ve done this album some good.
Personally, I prefer their previous album Into Abaddon, which blends thrash with stoner rock into a thick syrup of riffage.
February 7th, 20104:17 pm
2nd half of the Puppy Bowl VI. Go Yums.
Not at all Steve – I want to switch from astrophysics to planetary science.
Lew… you may well be right about the current Braves ownership willing to tie up big dollars retain Jurrjens’s services. Can’t say for sure if the younger pitchers will panout, or if they do, will they be as good as Jurrjens?
A lot can change by the time Jurrjens files.
February 7th, 20104:18 pm
I agree all the way with you eric. But, jim rome has some final words to you:
“Eric… sounds like you’re a little intimidated by romey’s flashness and greatness. Don’t worry– I’ll be eating top notch fish tacos and soaking some expensive champaign all while hanging out with gorgeous babes. Have fun blogging about cheap bbq with o’brien. I AM OUT!!”
Count me in the McKendry camp. Cindy Brunson’s kinda sneaky hot, too and I’m a big fan of Michelle Beadle, who’s got that albatross of Colin Cowturd to lug around on that godawful SportsNation show.
I think Skip Bayless is a tool but the friend of a friend is boys with Bayless and speaks highly of him.
A little poaching here, but his is from Chad Finn’s blog on the Boston Globe’s site:
TINSTAAPP defined: If ever you needed evidence that There Is No Such Thing As A Pitching Prospect, here’s your motherlode. These are all of the pitchers among the top 30 prospects on this list: Kerry Wood (4, good career but got Dustied), Matt White (6, paid a ridiculous bonus by Rays), Kris Benson (7, his wife made more headlines), Ryan Anderson (23, “Space Needle” blew out his arm in the minors, is now a chef), Matt Anderson (24, No. 1 overall pick who hurt his arm flinging an Octopus at a Wings game), Eric Milton (25, slop-balling lefty who had some success), Bruce Chen (27, we apologize to Eric Milton — this is a slop-balling lefty), Scott Elarton (28, meh), Grant Roberts (29, most notable accomplishment was being photographed with a bong). You half-expect David Clyde, Kirk Dressendorfer, and Mark Prior to show up with this raggedy-armed crew.
He went through the top 100 prospect lists each year of the 1990s, and the preceding was from 1998.
February 7th, 20104:19 pm
Salamander–sounds like some heavy sh#t, man. Geez. I’ll be sure to check out that album, sounds like something I’d enjoy. You a fan of Testament?
February 7th, 20104:22 pm
I realize that post may be confusing–I mean the astrophysics/planetary science is heavy, not the album (though I’m sure that’s pretty heavy as well), LOL! You must be pretty sweet at math…
I was trying to defend the people who were wanting to sign Dye but that’s what I get huh lol?!?! Wasn’t trying to ruffle your feathers, your still my favorite blogger brother!
February 7th, 20104:27 pm
I’ve heard of them, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard any of their stuff. I’ll check em out. If you like thrash metal Steve, I think you’ll like Saviours – especially their latest album.
1 Last Word Jim Rome!
Nobody on a blog hangs out with hot chicks!
And even if he does its because his definition of hot chick is way below any normal standard!
February 7th, 20104:30 pm
Steve – not really. My math skills are pretty average for a graduate student. I know how to manipulate equations for what I need to do (i.e. look it up in a textbook), but I’m not a math-whiz by any stretch of the imagination.

February 7th, 20104:56 pm
You didn’t give him Dumbo ears though, did you? RG
he did if it’s at all realistic
I love the episode where he’s agreed not to do comedy in the office, and Jim throws out a few softballs before Michael has to scream, “That’s what she said!”. Too funny.
February 7th, 20105:03 pm
the only thing funny about the Schafer ears thing is how absurdly exaggerated it is by a couple of regulars here. What is it, that the kid’s got such appeal to the young fans, some here feel better when they can say, “Hey, but look at his ears!”… DOB
That’s mostly for Roman Gal’s benefit
February 7th, 20105:04 pm
DOB and company,
Taking any prop bets for the super bowl?
I went with there will be a FG over 42.5 yards
There will be a defensive or special teams TD
February 7th, 20105:11 pm
Colts vs. Saints, wow… my pulse didn’t move at all.
It’ll be on mute in the background while I do work. Not going to waste a night to booze-it-up for this one.
February 7th, 20105:17 pm
Apathy aside, I’m rooting for the Colts (Saints being a division rival and all).
February 7th, 20105:31 pm
Agreed, plus Atlanta is full of Bandwagon Saints Fans. Manning will destroy that N.O. defense
Indy wins 38-27, Watch and get ready for a lot of passing. I bet the game reaches the 4 and a half hour duration
February 7th, 20105:34 pm
Puppy Bowl is on
February 7th, 20106:03 pm
I appreciate that. It really benefit’s me. Yep, sure does.
February 7th, 20106:06 pm
Who dat?! Colts aren’t dat!
February 7th, 20106:07 pm
Man, Joe Robbie Stadium looks a lot different now as opposed to a Marlins game in the middle of the summer with 80,000 people there tonight as opposed to the 10,000 crowds they draw for marlins games
February 7th, 20106:10 pm
ESPN MLB said FoxSports reports “Tigers and Braves still in on Damon?” Tigers say they’re 1st 8 are set and Braves say they’re not going to pay mega bucks. So who get Damon?
February 7th, 20106:21 pm
February 7th, 20106:22 pm
Ok if anyone is bashing the dudes ears…. I worked with this woman who claimed she dated him last year. I’d put her in that category of dave’s oral surgeon… he’s got game, on and off the field.. So ‘hate’ all you want… Not only that, when he was sent down last year he probably had the best explanation of anyone I’ve seen( see francouer)
February 7th, 20106:32 pm
How does a French woman hold her liquor? By the ears!
That’s what she said.
February 7th, 20106:38 pm
I’d love to give you a review of Community BBQ, but can’t. Because for the second time in three days, we went there only to be greeted by a sign on the door: Closed. Ran out of meat.
Yes, not once, but twice in three days we went to the restaurant hungry, ready to chow on some Q, and it was closed. Unbelievable. Seriously, how many times in your life have you showed up at a restaurant and they were out of food? Maybe once, if that? Well, twice in three days at the same restaurant.
And while I could understand Friday, when a review ran in that day’s AJC and we didn’t arrive until 8:30, an hour before closing. I could understand them being out of food that day, perhaps. But today? C’mon, folks. You gotta do better than that.
There were still a few people finishing their meals, so they obviously had run out in the last hour or so before we got there. The sign said that because they cook only fresh meat and blah blah blah, they sometimes underestimate how much they need to have on hand and they run out. What? So most BBQ places are cooking, what, week-old meat?
And the thing is, we showed up at 5:15 p.m. today. An hour before the Super Bowl, and about four hours before they were to close. And they were out of meat? Before dinner time? Really?
Oh, well. Fortunately, we’ve got plenty of other BBQ places. But I did want to give this place a try since it’s so close to home. I guess next time, if I try again, I’ll call ahead before I go. Since you never know when they might be out of food.
February 7th, 20106:55 pm
DOB, sorry. That sucks, but you might not have even liked that BBQ anyways.
I really don’t like Reggie Bush … can anybody give me a reason why?
Still love Manning though.
February 7th, 20107:00 pm
Gotta say something else on that meat, Dave. Meat is STILL good even if it’s not one day old. Keep the stuff frozen for God’s Sake. We’ve had meat in our freezer for a year that we eat.
February 7th, 20107:01 pm
February 7th, 20107:23 pm
I’ll give you a BBQ review…
In my experience, everything outside of Texas sucks.

It’s so quiet – what’s everybody doing? I can understand why Soph isn’t here…
February 7th, 20107:46 pm
Venice Jim, watching superbowl, but do ALL of them not have access to the internet or is the game THAT interesting?
February 7th, 20107:48 pm
lets talk baseball.
Any team scare you in the east besides the phillies
February 7th, 20107:50 pm
I appreciate that. It really benefit’s me. Yep, sure does RG
well sure ir does. let’s you know that we are all still thinkin’ ’boutcha and still luvya even when you are gone for awhile
February 7th, 20108:06 pm
“So most BBQ places are cooking, what, week-old meat?” DOB
Is that a serious question? 99 out of 100 restaurants (probably more like 999 out of 1000), do NOT use what would be deemed “fresh” meat. Most of them have shipments of meat twice a week. Leavin the possiblity that yeah, your steak, pork, chicken or lamb just might be upwards of 4-5 days old, and that’s assuming that the meat packing place gets it out to their customers the same day it was processed.
I get your sarcasm. But perhaps they are a resaurant that has meat delivered daily, and that’s their selling point?
February 7th, 20108:07 pm
Maybe Lawrence Welk will be available for next year’s Super Bowl halftime show.
February 7th, 20108:12 pm
Coldwork — let’s hope so. It’d be better than this year’s. Booooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrring.
February 7th, 20108:14 pm
Rob from SC, no team worries me in the division, not even Philly. We were better than them in the 2nd half last year, but were too far behind by that point. If Glaus can at least come close to what LaRoche did for the team and if CJ comes back to life than we’ll be neck and neck with Phills.
February 7th, 20108:15 pm
Daybed, at least these announcers aren’t annoying.
They should have died before they got old.
I am certain they are in now in oxygen tanks.
February 7th, 20108:25 pm
In my experience, everything outside of Texas sucks. — KC
That’s probably the single worst review of anything — food, music, art, anything — that I’ve ever read. Especially when it’s a BBQ review from someone who calls himself KC. No, seriously. The worst.
February 7th, 20108:27 pm
Although, in fairness to KC, I should add that it wasn’t much worse than rmf’s review of a solid performance by The Who. Given the 15-minute or whatever limit and the setting, you want more than that? I thought it was pretty damn good…
Meanwhile, here come the Saints, marching in….
February 7th, 20108:28 pm
Best review of all time?
“Shark Sandwich. Two words…..”
February 7th, 20108:29 pm
Great job, Sean Payton – I was not sure it was a good idea, until it worked…
February 7th, 20108:30 pm
I missed The Who at halftime. Opted for The Simpsons, which was, well, a little underwhelming, except for the South Park ripoff scene.
Van the Man
February 7th, 20108:35 pm
The Who sounded good to me. I would add that Ringo’s son on drums is widely considered very good & plays w/ Oasis & several other bands.
let’s you know that we are all still thinkin’ ’boutcha and still luvya even when you are gone for awhile nolie
I usually try to keep an eye out for your shenanigans, too. Glad to know it’s not a wasted effort.
February 7th, 20108:41 pm
… and here comes Peyton to shock those marching Saints …
Zak Starkey will be 45, this year….
February 7th, 20108:43 pm
DOB, who you pulling for in this?
February 7th, 20109:07 pm
Let’s go Saints!
That onside kick was pretty ballsy and it paid off. I think that changed the tone of the game and has given Saints the chance to win it if they buckle down.
February 7th, 20109:13 pm
Remember when Super Bowl games — the games themselves — used to be one-sided contests just about every year? We’ve had some good games in the past few years.
Oh, and I bet Arcade Fire is getting some nice coin from the NFL for using their song on all those NFL Network commercials.
February 7th, 20109:14 pm
TnBrian: The Saints. As much as I like Peyton, you gotta pull for New Orleans after they got this far, right? Especially since they beat Brett Favre and Co.
February 7th, 20109:28 pm
If he likes you…he’ll kill you last
February 7th, 20109:31 pm
Wish it had been Darren, but I’ll take it…
February 7th, 20109:32 pm
Saints have done it
February 7th, 20109:36 pm
DOB, I just don’t like Reggie Bush, but the Saints have impressed and deserve this championship they’re about to win.
February 7th, 20109:37 pm
Nice tackle by my guy Darren going to the 2:00 warning…
February 7th, 20109:44 pm
Saints are the CHAMPS!
February 7th, 20109:45 pm
Where’s Kim KarTRASHian at?
February 7th, 20109:48 pm
How dumb are those baby talking commercials?
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
