OT - Some thoughts on the Emperor's New Clothes...errr, the Worldwide Leader

1. Did anyone hear Ravech's ridiculous comment on Sunday after the Royals lost the second game to the Cards...that the Royals were "fading away". First, I didn't know that still being in last place (at the time) meant we're coming on, and second, I didn't know that losing two games in a row after winning 11 of 12 constituted fading away. Utterly ridiculous.

2. The absolutely farcical "ESPN Deportes" update during SportsCenter. "Hey, Boomer, here's a great idea. We'll put the word "sports", in Spanish, after the ESPN, hire a lady with an accent, have her talk about soccer for 15 seconds, and then throw it back to the studio. This will draw in ALL the international viewers and truly make us the worldwide leader". Pathetic.

3. Cross-promotion has reached a new (low?) high now that clips from the show on ABC, "Wipeout", are being shown on the top 10 plays.

Why is it that human nature compels us to keep going further and further until we make asses out of ourselves? ESPN used to be really really good, and now it's the TV equivalent of Muzak. Good for background noise, but nothing of substance. Kind of like what Kietzman's show has turned into on 810.

The sad thing is, there really aren't any good alternatives. Fox isn't that much better, although I find myself watching their show more instead of SportsCenter, mostly because my TV's tuned there after Royals games.
