Who's Now? Mount Rushmore!


From Awful Announcing:
“SportsCenter Mount Rushmore of Sports,” will use fan-generated nominations on ESPN.com to identify the top four sports greats in each state/region, and online voting to select the state with the most impressive collection of sports luminaries worthy of being etched in the state’s Mount Rushmore of sports.

As part of the series, ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com award-winning columnist Rick Reilly will host daily SportsCenter segments focusing on the top five states/regions selected by fans as having the most significant collection of sports icons Monday, Feb. 16 – Friday, Feb. 20, beginning daily at 9 a.m. ET.

Oh. My. God. You've got to be kidding me. We suffered through "Who's Now" and TitleTown already. Now ESPN wants us to choke down this shit? It's perfectly fine to just show highlights and give the viewers some analysis. Do we really need this fiasco? Not one intelligent person will get into this. And, come on, Rick Reilly? That pompous ass really needs to get caught blowing Skip Bayless.

I'll make it easy for ESPN when it comes to Ohio: Archie Griffin, LeBron, Jim Brown, and Pete Rose. Pretty simple. Now please just stop. They have some things figured out when it comes to their NBA coverage, both College GameDays, and Baseball Tonight's when Steve Phillips isn't on...there is no excuse to keep forcing this Mickey Mouse shit on the public. Stick with what you do best.

I hate ESPN. Have a good weekend, enjoy the games.

G$....What was with LeBron's retarded decision to wind down the clock for the game winning shot last night and then settle for a 25foot jumper that bricked? Did he just suddenly forget that he's a freak of nature while driving to t he hoop and that he had shot horrible all night?

Glick, we are not going to argue this because that's what ESPN wants.

Drew, considering that Tyrus fucking Thomas was getting calls over him last night, I don't blame him for not driving. I read this morning that he had the flu. Losing Delonte is a killer.
