    John Kruk actually blamed David Wright's injury on metal bats. That was the end of Baseball Tonight for me.

    I listen to sports talk radio a lot, especially now that X-country is gone.

    Van Pelt is funny.
    Dan Patrick is funny.
    Ryen Russillo is pretty good and sometimes funny.
    Doug Gottlieb is pretty funny and pretty good.
    Steve Czaban is sometimes pretty funny.
    I would listen to Kornheiser if he was on.

    All the rest of the hosts suck.

    Analysts, personalities, there's too many to go through.

    Speaking of which... check out SL8R making an appearing on Sportscenter... coincidence? Doubtful.

    Correct, BUT....

    At least in Denver (and I imagine elsewhere), his show is now playing on the ESPN Radio station. I think he still works for SI though, right?

    Yeah DP works for SI and FoxSportsNet. Kinda surprising they would pick up DP's show when he's on against ESPN's Cowherd, but whatever.

    PTI and Around the Horn are pretty decent shows, but this new "SportsNation" bullshit is just terrible.

    At least football has now begun. Now they actually have something current and relevant to talk about when 80% of the channel is absorbed by the nfl.

    AFAIK ESPN doesn't own that many radio stations, its an affiliate system

    So that station may choose to broadcast Patrick at that slot. I know in Albany the ESPN affiliate does a local broadcast "Sound off with Sinkoff" while the other sports station broadcasts Dan Patrick on tape delay(because his live spot is occupied by a local sports talk program)

    What does bug me is the concept of a "middle of the seventh", which does not exist. From the second the third out is made in the top of an inning, the inning then becomes the bottom of the inning, not the middle of the inning.
    I guess I want them to say "third" etc. Which is a stupid thing to bitch about now that I think about it.

    hahaha, I hadn't heard that. I hate those two morons (Dennis and Callahan), so I'm glad to hear Dennis take a fall.

    Too funny: (Dennis): ".....number two, you're a fffffucking............drunk"

    haha

    Some more hate for ESPN.com.... not only do you have to be an "insider" to read anything worth a damn now, but they also shove horseshit video commercials down your throat when you go to each of their sports pages. Ads are all over sportscenter now, too. ESPN sucks balls in every way possible.

    And the new ESPNBoston.com? Give me a break- isn't that essentially what ESPN.com already was?

    I had a subscription to ESPN the Mag (free) so I was able to sign up as an insider-except you have to agree that they will automatically start billing you as soon as your subscription is up-give them your credit card # right now-not when your sub is up-I didn't sign up

    This sounds like something you would read in The Onion, but it's an actual ESPN press release.

    Guinness World Records Recognizes SportsNation for Most ‘Favre’ Mentions in an Hour

    In a matter of one hour Monday, SportsNation – fleetingly known as FavreNation – became a Guinness World Record holder.

    In anticipation of ESPN’s Monday Night Football matchup of Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings against the Green Bay Packers, SportsNation’s “Brett Favre Blowout” on Monday afternoon featured hosts Colin Cowherd and Michelle Beadle attempting to reference Favre at least 200 times and as many as 275 times during the show.

    Guinness World Record Adjudicator Stuart Claxton was on hand at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn., studios for the show, during which he officially witnessed and kept track of the legitimate mentions of Brett Favre in order for SportsNation to qualify for the Guinness World record for the “Most Mentions of a Name in a Television Program.”

    Guinness World Records’ guidelines for the record attempt:

    * The television program must be live and last a maximum of one hour.
    * Only clearly audible mentions of the name on-air in the final broadcast count towards the final total. References in on-screen text are not eligible for inclusion.
    * The mentions must be made as part of the show’s primary dialogue or discussion; inclusions of the name in background noise, audience chatter or music do not count.
    * Mentions of the name must all be in the context of a discussion and used in sentences which are ostensive and make statements of either fact or value.

    FavreNation on Monday included Weird Web Stories featuring Brett Favre, a mock interview in which Michelle posed questions to the world’s most famous No. 4, Michelle sporting a different Favre T-shirt in each show segment and numerous instances of the word “Favre” becoming a verb, an adverb or an adjective. After the first 10 minutes of the show, Claxton had counted 53 Favre references.

    At the “End of the Day,” SportsNation was officially recognized for mentioning Favre 203 times and is now the rightful owner of a Guinness World Record for most mentions of a name in a television program. The show’s record is now in line for inclusion in the 2011 edition of the Guinness World Records.

    “It is great to see ESPN celebrate multiple Guinness World Record-holder Brett Favre’s achievements in the NFL,” said Stuart Claxton, Guinness World Records adjudicator. “SportsNation are now officially the Guinness World Record holder for Most Mentions of a Name in a Television Program with a total of 203 mentions of the name Brett Favre. Congratulations to Colin and Michelle and everyone involved at ESPN.”

    “All of us at SportsNation are humbled to have a record that will be listed in the same book as the world’s largest pizza and the world’s longest fingernails,” said coordinating producer Jamie Horowitz, a co-creator of the show along with Kevin Wildes.

    Bumping this thread because ESPN currently has Mel Kiper's first mock draft up on their front page. Seriously. Its THREE MONTHS before the draft, and Mel Kiper is possibly the most annoying person on ESPN these days... and that's saying a lot. The guy doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about either.

    I can't find anything definitive from a quick search, but I ran across a few message board posts stating that in the '08 draft, he had exactly ZERO correct picks in the first round.

    i can definitely live and have lived w/out the female play callers and analysts for college football.

    i get it, theyre equal opportunity no matter what; but you really need to check your network if you think women calling a college football game is a serious advance for women everywhere.

    anytime they want to pay attention to who their audience is, i'm ready to watch their secondary college games.
