Dan Patrick wants Keith Olberman to Bring Back the Porn ‘Stache
I was glad to see some true professionals taking over NBC’s Sunday Night Football…some of the announcers these days drive us here at PJ crazy. The only problem is NBC is having absolute overkill with the staff, (more on that later). Olberman hosted a spot last year on Sunday night, but wasn’t the focus of the show by any means. It appears he and Dan Patrick, ESPN Sportscenter partners between 1992 and 1997 will once again be paired up.
Olberman and Patrick will join a crowded host-house of Cris Collinsworth and to a lesser extent Bob Costas that also includes analysts Jerome Bettis, Tiki Barber and reporter Peter King. So, 3 main hosts in Patrick, Olberman, and Collinsworth (who I personally can’t stand half the time…but at least he has the balls to be negative) with the rest being the sideshow. Tiki Barber somehow has become the voice of NBC doing the Today show as well. He should be embarrassed that he left the game only to see his compadres win a title a year after his departure. If I were him, I’d quietly slip into the shadows and go away for a while. Do we really need The Bus? Who’s going to get a word in edgewise on this show?
Also, Inside The NFL is back as well…but on, sigh, Showtime. Who can afford to tack on Showtime with the cable and satellite companies putting it in our asses already for HD and everything else? To boot, James Brown, Phil Simms and Cris Collinsworth (yeah, again) will host this show and a fourth person to join them with the announcement expected later in the week. I hope its Dan Marino, so at least we get the chance to see this sort of behavior again.
OK OK, the real one is right here….Tags: Dan Marimo, Dan Marino, Dan Patrick, Football, James Brown, Jerome Bettis, Keith Olberman, NBC, NFL, Phil Simms, Sunday, Tiki Barber
