Wished Prince would've lasted a little longer in the Home Run Derby last night, but on a positive note, it made it that much easier to bail out of Chris Berman. I did like the "hit the truck" gimmick, though.

It's all about ratings and revenue

This is bravery, right here. Not Bruce Jenner. That guy/chick (I have no idea WTF to call him/her) couldn't hold a candle to Lauren Hill or Noah Galloway

A friend of mine applied and was offered a job there as a director two years ago. He decided not to take it and good thing he didn't. He probably would have been canned during that last round of firings a while back and failing that, he would have gotten the axe this round.

Kobe Bryant is a thoroughly unlikable person who should have retired when he blew his Achilles tendon three years ago. There's nothing winsome about his final couple of games. Even the some of the ESPN foofs getting paid to say nice things about him have been finding very creative ways to point out what a loathsome dick he was while reviewing his career.

All this stops Wednesday. Thank God.

I am so glad that he is gone. The only pro athlete that I could not stand to watch.
