Heath Bell Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Friday, April 17th, 2009

Earlier in the week we posted about how Heath Bell really doesn't like ESPN and Baseball Tonight's coverage of Major League Baseball. He claimed the WWL only cared about the Red Sox, Yankees and Mets. So basically he said exactly what we've all been thinking for years. Then, he went ...

Heath Bell Does Not Care For Your Coverage, ESPN

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

While you might think I'd use this space to inform you that Jody Gerut's leadoff homerun at Citi Field last night was the first time a ballpark has been greeted with a homerun in the opening at bat, or to blab along about the San Diego Padres being 6-2 right ...

Extremely Shittily Programmed Network

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

We all know that ESPN loves to shove certain things down our throats with vigor, varying from sport to sport. Baseball: Anything Yankees-Red Sox leads. NFL: Or as we like to call it, the NFC East and the other 7 College Basketball: We are investigating a lead that other conferences exist outside the ...

Erin Andrews Stole My Seat (and I Couldn’t Do a Thing About It)

Monday, January 26th, 2009

There were a few things I promised myself I would never do when I started blogging for Rumors and Rants in earnest. Those were: 1.) I will never write an Erin Andrews post. 2.) I will not give any clues as to who I actually am. 3.) I will never write an Erin ...

Bob Knight’s Mexican Donkey Show Makes Us PUke

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

I wasn't the biggest Bob Knight fan growing up. I didn't grow up anywhere near Indiana. I was one of those IU freshmen who thought "The General" was Patton or MacArthur. But as far as Bob Knight goes as a studio and in-game analyst, I love it. I can't get enough ...

San Diego State Straight Up Robbed Ball State (Allegedly)

Monday, December 15th, 2008

"Sources" have told ESPN's Joe Schad that Ball State head coach Brady Hoke is going to be leaving the school to get another head coaching opportunity. Pretty much everyone could see this coming. Hoke's Cardinals went 12-1 this season, were undefeated until the MAC championship game, and had Nate Davis, ...

Peavy May Not Be Traded After All

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

ESPN's Buster Olney - you know, the guy we've called a moron several times - is now reporting that the San Diego Padres are prepared to keep 2007 Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy if they can't get equal value in return for the right-hander. Um, duh. Kinda funny how we ...

NEWSFLASH: Favre Runs Lap

Monday, August 11th, 2008

These are the reasons I tune into ESPN. That and the new, live version of Sporscenter debuting this morning. As the Brett Favre-to-the-Packers-wait-no-to-the-Jets saga drags on and on, we find out that Brett is fitting in nicely with his new team. As poor Wendi Nix (seriously, does she not have anything ...
