I went into the new ESPN web series, Mayne Street with some apprehension that Mayne would pull off a funny show. However, to his credit, the show is entertaining. Scott Van Pelt should win a Webby or some internet award as best supporting actor, in the series. I hope the show continue its comedic trajectory and I will definitely tune in for by bi-weekly dose of Mayne Street.

“The world is gonna get every bit of Dade County I got in me. If you don’t understand what that means, watch the Hurricanes of the 90’s.”
Chad Johnson is a warrior poet if I have ever seen one. Chad should probably sit down with Michael Irvin and ask him how it felt when he was being carted off to a chorus of boos in Philly, because that is the direction Chad is headed at this point. Chad is a tremendous athlete and receiver, but this sort of stuff isn’t even entertaining at this point. It’s basically reached the point of complete and utter stupidity. I feel like I lost two thousand brain cells when I saw that, we as a nation are less intelligent for listening to it.
Stephen A. Smith is over the whole Brett Favre “love affair” in the media. In this video, Stephen A. throws out his standard lines like “this is uttery ridiculous” and he is “sick to his stomach” about The World Wide Leader’s infatuation with Favre. He sounds like a screaming idiot, but his argument makes sense.
We agree with Stephen A., the media loves Brett Favre and John Madden has wanted to service him for years. Brett is holding his team ransom and has created a schism between Green Bay fans holding rallies outside Lambeau field and the fans who want the Aaron Rogers regime to start. Wait, no Green Bay fans want the Aaron Rogers era to begin.
The Packers have told Favre that he can be their back-up QB. That is fair since Favre is being dramatic and needy. The NFL has held him up as the poster-child for all that’s right about football, and he’s tearing his team apart, while it’s “sickening” that Favre’s coming back and the media is backing him up. Everyone, but Stephen A. that is….
Dan and Keith return to NBC this fall for the NFL on NBC pre-game show. These two sportscasters worked their comedy chops in the early 90’s when teaming for “The Big Show” on ESPN’s Sportscenter. They were trailblazer back then, but each have gone their separate ways after the split from the show. Keith Olberman left ESPN in 1997 to turn to turn to Fox Sports Net, and after getting fired on that job he turned to more mainstream journalism. He currently hosts a news program on MNBC’s Countdown.
Dan Patrick was at ESPN radio and had great takes with his co-host Dibble in the early 2000’s. Unfortunately he left ESPN last year and has resurfaced on a nationally syndicate radio show which isn’t picking up a huge national radio following.
These guys were breaking new ground at ESPN in the 1990’s, but will they pick-up where they left off when Keith co-hosted an hour with Dan on his ESPN radio show? That remains to be seen.
