I feel unchallenged but not bored. I have other business interests...Those would be what now, Joe? Begging for pizza in preseason games? Shilling for life insurance in late-night infomercials? Or perhaps being the public face for Sudden Snapping Leg Syndrome?
The same quote notes that he also gives motivational speeches. (Filing under Future Top 10 list for a slow day...)
Finally, this opinion of the current line up of Monday Night Football.
Ron is a terrific football guy but he happens to work on Tony's show. It has become a three-hour Tony Kornheiser show. When I was let go, they explained they wanted more of an issue show and less about football. They've accomplished that.Um, he may have the kernel of a point here... but MNF with Theismann wasn't a football show, either. It was a four-hour exercise in human suffering masquerading as a sports telecast, and you were Lead Reason why I wanted to stab my ears out watching it.
This year's MNF is still painful; the World Wide Lemur is so full of itself these days, between the gladhanding Bermanisms and the Pardon My Existence halftime shoehorn and the required Celebrity Moment and the fact that the game usually sucks... well, let's just say that in my dreams, football viewers with pitchforks and torches take back the telecast of the games, or we have the ability to switch out coverage to some other entity (live podcast from a football-centric team? radio broadcast from local analysts? maybe even just the Westwood One radio call from Marv Albert and Boomer Esison?).
But I don't know anyone, Joe Thees Man, who is pining for more you in their lives. Perhaps you could co-host Dennis Miller's new show on Versus, and go for the height of unwatchable?
H/t, With Leather...
