Around The Horn To Have A Guest Host This Week

Monday, June 30, 2008


I normally wouldn't draw attention to the nightly annoyance that is Around The Horn but they actually have an interesting guest host this week with Reali on vacation.

Rob Stone will host Around the Horn this week (June 30-July 4), substituting for the vacationing Tony Reali. Stone, who has handled a variety of play-by-play and studio roles as part of ESPN's soccer, college football and bowling coverage, is making his first appearance on ATH. Reali has missed just three shows since assuming the role of host three-and-a-half years ago in February 2004. Stone will also fill-in for Reali the week of July 28-August 1.
Stoner! Hopefully we'll get to see him do something crazy like have Foudy and Mitts sit in on a show, or my personal favorite....

Since they're pals and all, is there any way Stoner can bring Bill Simmons along as one of the panelists?

That would be the only way I'd ever watch ATH.

Since Reali likes his blog so much, why wasn't TBL asked to guest host?

I love the second bite that Stone takes as if one wasn't enough.

I like how Febuary 04 was THREE years ago ESPN HR.

Once again, we need an ombudsman stat.

Is hosting ATH really a step up from covering World's Strongest Man ?

Heather Mitts in a bikini would get me to watch ATH.

That pic at the top looks like the beginning of a porn

after seeing the show yesterday I realized the only worse than ATH is ATH without Reali to corral those obnoxious blowhards.

Absolutely unwatchable without the moderator cutting those idiots off instead of kissing up to them

What was doing soccer highlights too hard for him?

He couldn't hold his composure and was constantly cracking up on camera.

What was ESPN thinking letting Adande and Mariotti sub on PTI
