PHIL JACKSON was a pretty good coach. 11 Championships kinda speaks for itself. But, he absolutely blew chunks as an Exec. After it was revealed that he had fallen asleep watching draft talent, (notwithstanding his mishandling of Porzingis and Antony), he had to go.
OVER THE PAST several years (coinciding with DVRs and internet trolls, people with nothing better to do than ruin someone else’s livelihood have been rewinding PGA event and slo-mo’ing every step of players to find that one offense they can call into PGA Police and report the crime.
Jordan Spieth won the Travelers on a dramatic sand-save and holed it. He threw his sand wedge in excitement. It would not surprise me if thousands of trolls rewound Spieth’s club throw just to see if the club touched the bunker.
Two of my top complaints about the PGA, isn’t about the PGA; its trolls and dummies. Trolls sitting at home, looking for violations and calling them in, and dummies behind the ropes who, on every tee shot yell: GET IN THE HOOOOOOLE! Aggg…. Find something else to yell.
LIKELY THE BEST OF MANY MEMORABLE ESPN PROMOS was the shot of John Clayton doing a report then a cut-away to his “studio” in his bedroom. He removed his mock suit, and underneath he was wearing a Slayer black T-shirt. He unfurled a fake pony and yell at his mom that he done with his report.
It was a hilarious promo. ESPN was genius at their promos. I wonder if, in the wake of ESPN firing most if not all its talented pros it has decided to fire the people responsible for the those spots of brilliance. I miss the old ESPN – the ESPN of funny promos, sports commentary and sports.
HEY MOM! JOHN’S COMING HOME! MAKE HIM A SAM’ICH!!
I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE BIG DEAL IS – Mr Met gives the nation his version of the silent “Bronx Cheer” and the Mets organization apologizes. This should be the Mets 2018 Logo.
The team is a collective “fuck you” at present, so why not advertise it that way?
