Bob Costas: Not A Fan of Britney Spears

Thursday, April 19, 2007


I mustered up enough strength to read the Des Moines Register! Yay for me!!! Anyway(s), this article cracked me up. It's Bob Costas commenting on civility, Sports Talk Radio, and......Britney Spears???

"It's not just hate talk. It's stupid talk. It's stupidity," Costas says. "My own network, NBC, put on a whole hour of Britney Spears (programming) about a year ago. And the network was so elated by it that they repeated it."
He also talks about class and not insulting people. I'd like to think of this as a classy site. For the most part we/I don't really call people names and the like. Well everyone, but Charles "Mangina" Davis....he deserved it though right?

P.S.- Bob...relax, it's called "not taking yourself too seriously"....try it once or twice. It's fun.

Costas is one of those guys I just can't figure out. He's an excellent announcer, but comes off as an arrogant bag of wind almost as often as he is insightful.

I try to like Costas. But, he just seems to come across as a sanctimonious prick so much of the time.

I used to enjoy his late night show, mostly when he had interesting guests on like Bill Graham who had a ton of great stories.

But Costas is such a douchy guy...

And of course the Iowa Cubs think he's Jeebus - they moved a night game to the afternoon since Costas is in town for something and wanted to see a baseball game.

How sweet.
