Tuesday Afternoon Update

Doing some work and also keeping an eye on ESPN2’s Wimbledon coverage online. It’s nice to have live tennis. Also, when you have Dick Enberg, Patrick McEnroe, Cliff Drysdale, Pam Shriver, Mary Carillo, Chris Fowler, Mary Jo Fernandez and Luke Jensen, you have a very solid team. Plus, ESPN2 has been hitting all the major […]

Your Tuesday Links

Tuesdays are never fun as it’s still early in the workweek and the weekend is not in sight. But still, there are links to get to.Sports Media Watch says WWE President Vince McMahon had to “return from the dead” on USA last night to announce the tragic death of wrestler Chris Benoit and his family. […]

Sometimes, It's Best To Say Nothing

Thanks to Awful Announcing, we have the clip where Kyle Petty swore on TNT during the Save Mart 350 NASCAR race. As we say on the internet, NSFW. Because my computer is so slow tonight, my plans to give you a full update have to be scrapped. I’ll give you a full set of links […]

Monday Afternoon Update

Time to check out some updates from today. First, I’ve been checking ESPN2’s Wimbledon coverage through it’s broadband service, ESPN360 (only available through participating Internet Service Providers). Like the French Open, the first day has been plagued by rain. Unlike the Tennis Channel, which had to rely heavily on tapes of old matches, ESPN2 didn’t […]

Back to Work Monday

It’s never fun to be back at work after a weekend off, but it also means that we get to review the sports weekend. I saw bits and pieces of the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships on NBC plus some of the College World Series on ESPN2. In my last post on Sunday, I […]

Comparing Goofner to Trup

Last night, I was able to listen to both former Red Sox announcer Jerry Trupiano and one of his replacements, Glenn “3 x 5″ Geffner. Thanks to Sirius Satellite Radio, I was able to listen to the College World Series from Westwood One’s NCAA Radio Network. Kevin Kugler and Trup were on the call. For […]

Weekend Viewing Choices Addition

For Saturday, I suggest you watch Giada in Paradise: Capri on the Food Network at 9 p.m. ET/PT. I’m watching Giada in Paradise: Santorini. Just seeing Giada de Laurentiis swimming in a pool is enough for me. I’m enamored with her. Back to your regularly scheduled blog.

Theismann Speaks

Joe Theismann is a bitter man. Who wouldn’t be after being fired by ESPN for really no reason at all. But when you go over the unceremonial firings, I can go back to Fred “The Hammer” Williamson who was fired back in 1974 after two pre-season games to be replaced by Alex Karras. Producer Terry […]

Friday Night Update

I’m watching the NHL Entry Draft, something I forgot to put in the Primetime Viewing Choices for tonight. But, Versus has not done a good job in promoting the NHL and getting carriage so I simply forgot to list it. Anyway, thank goodness TSN is doing the coverage otherwise listening to Versus’ analysts might be […]

It's Friday

I had to leave the office earlier today, but it’s time for one mega dose of links. After last week’s U.S. Open, this week is a bit tamer with Interleague baseball, the NASCAR race which will have a couple of firsts, the College World Series and golf in Hartford, CT. Let’s start with USA Today’s […]

Here He Comes, Here Comes Speed Racer, He's a Demon on Wheels….

Just in time for the movie, a new version of the Speed Racer cartoon will be out next year for Nicktoons. Apparently, the new Speed will be Speed Racer’s son and he’ll have a new race car, the Mach 6 which will be totally green and not run on gas. Having grown up in the […]
