Well we’re here. My worst nightmare. No, not Ray Lewis and his crying/grandstanding/motivational speaking, I can handle that because its to be expected. He is background noise at this point. Nope, these next 2 weeks are going to be the worst two weeks in ESPN and Sports Media history because of two brothers. Bad puns, meaningless stories, interviews with family members, the works.
Rovell is going to tweet terrible jokes for the next 14 days “Harbowl” “Superbaugh” “The Super Bowl presented by Jimmy John’s”. Reilly is going to do a puff piece on how Jim threw a rock at John back when they were in grade school and their mother made them apologize to each other and promise they’ll someday coach against each other in a Super Bowl. Schefter is going to tell us how he spoke with some anonymous league executives and they all agreed that Jack Harbaugh was the greatest dad in football. Berman, fucking Berman. I don’t even want to think about what Berman is going to do. The guy at your office who doesn’t really watch sports is going to repeat the same 3 terrible puns in an attempt to fit in. Its all bad. All of it. So buckle up, because we’re on a cringe inducing ride the likes of which we have never seen.
See what I mean
