Who Wants Some Cold Pizza News?

Monday, February 26, 2007






I had this sweet Hooters commercial with Dickie V lined up for this morning, but the video was all funked up. So you most likely will see that tomorrow morning.....and it's brilliant.

In the news department it seems like ESPN is sticking with Cold Pizza. As many of you know CP will be moving to Bristol June 1st, and will be taking on a new name. In addition the show will incorporate Mike and Mike in the morning, and bring in some fresh faces.

[Norby] Williamson "wants [‘Cold Pizza’] to be more news program than fluffy morning show” and said that ESPN will “more closely integrate it with its lead-in,” a simulcast of ESPN Radio’s "Mike & Mike in the Morning." Williamson: "We’ve made it more of a first take (on the news). We want to expand that."
So will those fresh faces finally rid of us Skip Bayless? Ummm....unfortunately no.
"Similar to 'The Sports Reporters,' ESPN will build a rotating team of four or five commentators to go head-to-head with” commentator Skip Bayless.
So if anyone has a new name for the program....I'd love to hear it!

After his 1 week week tryout last month, I'm hoping against hope that the worst columnist in America, Detroit's own Rob Parker, gets one of the spots. If only to keep him from polluting airwaves and newsprint in the D quite so often. I'm begging you Norby! Please?

Guhhh. Another rotating cast of mostly New York/East Coast based sportswriters yammering on?

If I want to catch that, I'll watch the Sports Reporters on Sunday mornings, thanks. Having irregular people makes it harder to hate Skip.

Can we line up Mr. Teeny to take on Skip each day? Obviously, Mr. Teeny and his chimp brain will pummel Skip...and hopefully throw feces on him as well.

"Warmed-Over Leftovers".

Because by the time the ESPN Geniuses finish picking the bones, that's all that'll be left.

Why dont the televise Colin Cowherds radio show? My local station doesnt carry it anymore and it kicks the crap out of Mike and Mike. It HAS to be cheaper than the new CP also.
