Rob Stone, Straight Pimpin' (Plus Spielman "Dropping" Knowledge)

Sunday, September 16, 2007

I'm going to say that this is possibly my favorite clip that I've ever put together. It's moments like this that only happen when you're watching OK State-Troy at midnight on a Friday night.

Background:
Rob Stone is normally the on-field reporter with this team, but he's on Women's World Cup duty. I'm just guessing, but it doesn't seem like he's upset by not being in Troy, Alabama with the guys....


Wow....where do I start? Okay here are some talking points....

1. Heather Mitts.
2. Rob Stone joking on the soccer games that are coming up that morning, "Spielman I know you're fired up for Canada/Ghana at 4:45, 4:55 whatever it is...it's early."
3. The Wally Pipp reference regarding Joe Schad.
4. "Don't we have policies against that sort of stuff."- Sean McDonough, Umm.....do you?
5. Chris Spielman is like the gift that keeps on giving. "I know Lynn is probably watching happily at home, of course she's ready to drop twins any day now."

Ha, how many women out there would love for you to use the term "Dropping Twins"? I'm guessing none.

Wow...I just...wow....I really don't know where to begin with this.

I'm sure this was funny when it was proposed in the meeting, and my guess is Foudy and Mitts laughed at it too, thought it was great. But it's just so....AWKWARD.

Jeez, Heather sure was getting into the flirting with Rob. She was all up on it! Someone tell Heather that Stone isn't a QB.

Speilman thought that this took away from the game of football.

Agreed, signal to noise. I appreciate the womens' efforts to sell their sports, but no amount of extra promotion is worth having to flirt with ESPN reporters, ha.

My fault, there was a number 3 at one point but I combined it into one. Sorry if that threw anyone off.

Nothing to see here. It looks like she knew EXACTLY what kind of response that would elicit and so she went ahead with it...

It looked more like a hot chick toying with a man that couldn't have her.

I remember when Rob Stone was just a lowly sports reporter in a small southwest GA town of Albany back in 1994 when he worked for the NBC station there. I only know this because I worked in town with the minor league team, Albany Polecats.

"I KNOW you're fired up for Canada/Ghana at 4:45, 4:55 whatever it is...it's early."

Hyperbole at its finest (and this is coming from someone who got up a 4:45 am to live-blog the US Women's first two games).

Actually, Rob Stone was a lowly sports reporter at the FOX station in the Southwest Georgia town of Albany. The Polecats have been replaced by the Peanuts. Sadly, no Heather Mitts.

Now I'll be having nightmares about Al and John throwing back to the booth for a halftime preview, and Costas will have his arms around Collinsworth and Olbermann

The widely-rumored-to-be-gay McDonough probably just wants a policy in place so that he doesn't have to witness any man-on-woman action.

Otherwise, great work by Stone. Who really gives a f*ck about Canada Ghana. Or Oklahoma St. vs. Troy St., for that matter?

how could anyone take this serious? It was obviously a joke, how could you be offended by it? You can't find something more improtant to complain about?

Stone is a pretty=boy-wannabee=never be ..that schtick was so bad local news...or at Scholastic Sports America ..remember that show...Sir Chris Fowler used to host...give me the late Adrian Karsten for some real yuks...leave McDonough alone--great guy and announcer no matter what his sexual preferences are
