The Sklar Bros Are Back On ESPN (Simmons Laughs Maniacally)

Monday, April 09, 2007


So the Sklar Brothers have made it back onto ESPN after their show Cheap Seats was unceremoniously dropped a few months back. They have a feature called "The Bracket" which now runs during SportsCenter every Sunday, and well.....I'll let you judge if it's funny or not (I'm going to guess no)....



Hahaha Bengals Joke! Hahahaha Fantasy Island! Hahahaha Baseball All Star Game Tie! Hahaha Mike Doss! Oh god you guys slay me!!!!

Actually the Mona Line, The Tommy Herr Line, and the Bruce Springsteen Disaster Line made me chuckle. But only slightly! I give it a C-.....perfect for Sunday SportsCenter....a show that features Stephen A. Smith.

I enjoy the Sklars... I thought that was pretty good.

They also did a segment on This Week In Baseball.

You've got to admit that Stephen A. does a good job on Sunday morning.

I never understood Simmons' attack on the Sklars. They never really did anything to warrant it. They had a show on ESPN Classic. Now that I think about it, Simmons might actually be the original Schrutebag.

Has SportsCenter turned into 100% schtick now?

My household vagina very much likes the term Schrutebag. I think it must be expanded beyond the original Cowfuck.

COme on, the Steve Garvey Billfishing Tournament with Artie Johnson and Michael Floorwax...

That was some funny shit, I also liked the rip on the old Superstars they did.

I loved Cheap Seats...

There was a few months (maybe weeks) there where Simmons would blast them and Cheap Seats in his column every so often.

The Sklars are among the most annoying people in the media. They have taken the whole - "reference of old cultural icons as humour" - idea to a new low.

I think it is funny that you idiots who say that Cheap Seats is not funny don't even bother explaining why. Cheap Seats is one of the greatest shows ever on television, and I have had the terrible luck of having ESPN Classic removed from my cable line-up. The Sklars are intelligent, hilarious, and actually got me, a girl with only animosity for sports, to watch ESPN. They deserve only the highest praise. ESPN, release a dvd boxed set now!
