The Gonzo Lounge>ESPN is Garbage
Chieftain 06:05 PM 06-07-2021
I wanted to vent off here about this because it's way overdue. ESPN was once a great sports media back when guys like Stuart Scott, Dan Patrick, Rich Eisen and Kenny Mayne were doing their nightly casts. Or even before that when Bob Ley had just started Outside the Lines. Their main attraction was the iconic Monday Night Countdown with Chris Berman and Tom Jackson. They also aired the very successful NHL 2Night on ESPN2 with John Buccigross and Barry Melrose.

Today, ESPN is heralded by woke trash like Stephen A Smith. Their only great anchor is Mike Greenberg. They got rid of the only watchable football anchor in Trey Wingo. What really annoys me most though is their sports app. Every single time you click on the box score it shows the entire team lineup as if they designed it only for NBA games.:-)

My favorite of this ilk is Blue Bloods. Outside of the annoying D.A. daughter, the cast is great and it hasn't gotten stupid over the years. At least not yet.
Blue Bloods is Wednesday. :-)

And of course the annoying DA daughter used to be married to Tom Brady. It's actually her son that he kisses while he's getting a rub down.

I think he meant the daughter of the DA, Sami Gayle. Annoying on the show. Now off the show, character is in SF.

Would Bridget Moynahan, ...maybe tom selleck too. :-)

I used to love ESPN when I was younger, even when KC teams warranted little coverage. The last ESPN program I listened to regularly was Mike & Mike, until they split up. Now I'm not woke enough to follow all this trash talk and yelling over each other.

I pay no attention to ESPN now. I'll Youtube all my Chiefs and Royals coverage I need these days and not spend 98% of a show's time waiting for a minute of national coverage.

No, I meant the DA. Her character is annoying as hell. I realize her purpose is to bring balance to the group, but I like everyone else better.

Brady didn't marry Moynahan; He knocked her up, then left her for Giselle

Dan Patrick Show lost to ESPN last night for an Emmy. While I normally don’t give 2 shits about those awards... ESPN has done nothing but spew racial BS the last year. Dan Patrick and his team got completely fucked out of a award because ESPN Sports Center got in line lock and step to democratic race baiting.

PTI is and has always been great. Ironically, their success is what helped spawn these incessant clickbait sports talk shows like Skip and First Take, unfortunately. When done well, that kind of stuff is fun and entertaining provided the hosts arenít douchebags.

When itís just done to drum up haters to the latest hot take thing said, thatís when it becomes utter shit

PTI is still on? Wow.

Excellent point though. Some of Kornheisers jokes arenít funny, and sometimes they have to take a position because itís on the program, but yeah, theyíre not total disingenuous asslickers.

I have to strongly disagree with that. Great show, and I would have agreed with you all the way up to season 11, but i'm out on it now. I'll drop my reason under the spoiler in case you aren't current.

Spoiler!
