Charissa Thompson Moves To ESPN

I like to think that Fang’s Bites was one of the first blogs to jump on the Charissa Thompson bandwagon back in 2007 when she started getting national exposure on Fox Sports Net and Big Ten Network. Since then, she’s worked on Fox Sports’ NFL coverage on the sidelines, been a co-host on the Best […]

Versus Making Wholesale Changes To NHL Broadcasts

This has been a busy Saturday. Unfortunately, I’ve been dealing with a lot of family stuff today. Nothing major, but it’s kept me from blogging. Anyway, I have to discuss another story that’s been burning up Twitter and the blogosphere today, however, I want to discuss this first. It was first reported in the Montreal […]

Versus To Offer Seven Hours of Programming During NHL All-Star Weekend

Versus is really going all out, trying to show the NHL that it can really dedicate itself to the sport. I wish they had done this earlier in its contract, but better late than never, and hopefully, the league will keep the main contract with the NBC/Versus (soon to be called SNBC?). Versus will unveil […]

Some Snowy Wednesday Links

On this day of massive snow here in the Northeast, I’ll provide you with some linkage. Crazy day as local meteorologists first predicted 4-8 inches, then as the storm organized, the totals were revised upward and upward. Now, it appears we have more on the ground here. Not quite the perfect storm, but damn close. […]

With another college football regular season over and we get ready for the Bowls, it’s time to judge the best and worst on TV in 2010. Some stellar work this season. There’s also been some bad work. Let’s do this. For comparison, you can take a look at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd edition of […]

The 2nd Annual Fang's Bites NHL TV Awards

Now that the NHL season is over, time for the 2nd version of the NHL TV Awards. We did our first last year and got attacked by readers when it was posted over at Puck Daddy on Yahoo, but you can’t please everybody. This not only includes the 2009-10 season, but also the Olympic hockey […]

Monday's Linkage

I’ll do some linkage for you. Been busy all day, but I have a nice window here and I’ll get to links after I discuss last night’s hockey action. I’m still coming down from the USA win over Canada last night in men’s hockey. Now, there are many things that could be said about NBC […]

Did You Know It's The End of BDSSP?

If you’re a regular viewer of the show, you know what BDSSP stands for. If not, then you haven’t seen Best Damn Sports Show Period. It’s hard to believe it’s been on for 8 years, but it’s been a regular staple of your Fox Sports Net affiliate. It began with a group of guys talking […]

Some Monday Links

Just to let you know, blogging will be at a minimum over the next couple of weeks as I have to send my Acer notebook computer out to get fixed (something wrong with the power connection) so I’ll try to blog whenever I can from other computers. So annoying when this happens. I’m blogging from […]

Five Women Who Can Make Me Stop Flipping The Remote – 2008

A Lazy Friday Megalink Session

I have to be honest with you. I’m a bit slow in getting the megalinks up to you today because of various issues. Yes work is one of them, but another is just being slow to get to the blog. Another issue was piecing together the premiere episode of The Amazing Race Asia 3 of […]
