I stopped watching Around the Horn because of Woody Paige. I actually like outspoken guys, as long as they stick to one opinion. And if only Bayless could find one consistency besides dogged insistence. He has one mode: vociferous speculation.

I think I preferred Skippy over Kit. Sadly he was only on for half the show.

It really makes you wonder what the hell T.O. did to piss Brainless off so much. He practically talks about him everyday.

This morning Woody brought it a CD of him and Will Hung singing entitled 'Woody and Hung.'

Skip Bayless is very angry.

And Skip also hates all athletes with a passion. Grrr!

Jay Crawford thinks its a great idea to make fun of Woody and pander to Skip, who also enjoys shouting.

Why can't Thea Andrews just host this show all by herself? Even if she only wanted to talk about the hockey lockout, I would still watch.

Skip Bayless is one of those people who I disagree with just about everything he says or writes. He's such a lightweight though, so I can't work up the same level of dislike for him as I have for Mike Lupica. I hate to say it, but Mike Lupica sometimes has important things to say. Skip, never.

Why did Skip Bayless ever become a sports writer? It's obvious that he hates all athletes!

On Wednesday's 12/15 show- Bayless stated that Jerome Bettis does not belong in his Hall of Fame.

That would be the Jerome Bettis that is only the SIXTH BEST all time leader rusher, trailing only Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders, Eric Dickerson and Curtis Martin. Bettis is closing in on Dickerson, and will end up at least fifth best all time.

And that makes a guy borderline at best?

Bayless' disdain for athletes is sickening. Skip- wipe that sickening half grin half scowl off your face and shut up!!

If you all were to describe Woody Paige to me, I would hate him. For some reason though, I don't. He kind of amuses me. I think he plays up the angry sports guys with indigestion a little much (not as much as Bayless and Stephen A. Smith, though). He kind of makes me giggle and I think he means well.

The biggest complaint I have about this show (other than that Kit went from looking adorable to being slightly scary) is that they put WAY too much make up on the men. I don't think that is actually Bayless' face. He might look like me, but they paint on that face every day. Seriously, the pancake makeup they put on the men is disturbing. The only thing that moves on their faces are the eye crinkles. Which in the case of Jay Crawford is a good thing. His eye crinkles are adorable. Moving on now...

The reason why Woody is so funny (especially on Around the Horn) is that behind the "angry sportswriter" facade is someone who doesn't take himself too seriously, unlike most of his peers.

Ditto, just look at why PTI is a success and from time to time ATH and Cold Pizza is somewhat good. Woody is enjoyable (except judging for Dream Job, which he grilled everyone) that he doesn't take himself seriously. Other sportswriters like Skip, Lupica, Ryan, and Mariotti take each subject so seriously, including the entertaining ones. That's why there are people who backlash on sportswriters because of their tone. To be honest, I think its who has the best loudmouth, which in every network is heading towards and for that writers have become too serious, which leads me to the ATH thread.

Time to vent more Skip Bayless hatred...

Cold Pizza (basically a FLUFF show) covered a survey conducted of the most popular sports mascots- which the Phoenix Suns' Gorilla won.

Jay Crawford poses the question- who are your (Woody & Skip) favorite sports mascots.

Woody: Much love for the original, the San Diego- now Famous Chicken. Expressed appreciation for the Gorilla, for the Phille Phanatic, for Hugo the Hornet and the Stanford Tree.

Skip: Hates all mascots. Doesn't watch them or the cheerleaders.

And then- Skip reveals why he is the least likeable guy in sports today.

Skip says during breaks in the action, he takes the opportunity to REVIEW HIS NOTES and CONSIDER STRATEGY for the next play/possession/inning/situation.

Skip- news flash. You are not a coach or general manager. You are a writer- but it seems like you are more of a frustrated nerd who is living vicariously through your profession. Sports are supposed to be fun- they are supposed to be entertainment!

You don't like mascots- fine. But Woody had it right- can you imagine Skip taking kids to a game?

Skip is a small angry man. You are on a FLUFF show- stop taking yourself so seriously!

First off- Monday's (1/3) show:

Thea looked VOLCANO HOT broadcasting out of Miami. I absolutely love it when they send her to warm climate location shoots. Her outfit, her hair- top shelf.

Skip- you must DIE! From bitching and moaning about John Anderson (who made a much better host than Jay Crawford) to clowning with a Terrell Owens action figure- YOU STINK!

Highlights (lowlights, really):

* Amare Stoudmire (Phoenix Suns) scores 50 points on Sunday-- Skip pooh poohs him as not a top big man (Stoudmire's 6-10)

* When asked which is the WORST team from the NFC to qualify for the playoffs, Skip passes over the 8-8 Vikings & Rams- and selects the NFC best Philadelphia Eagles.

* Skip continues to WHINE and COMPLAIN about a Michael Vick touchdown that happened TWO WEEKS AGO.

Skip- you cry more than a thirteen year old girl.

Skip is a fool! WTF is wrong with him? He went on to say he just wasn't impressed and that Amare is more of an athlete than a big man. What the hell does that even mean? Amare is a big man that can move. Is this a bad thing? Skip is just irritating beyond belief. Why did they think that adding him to the show would be a good idea.

God, Cold Pizza sucks. They should euthanize this show and bring back the fishing shows they used to run in that timeslot. Or maybe Australian Rules Football. Or a live webcam of paint drying.

The ladies on this show have always been eye dressing. Well, Thea has. And Leslie (I think that was her name, the one who was in the original cast for about 10 minutes). I've always found Kit kinda creepy. The problem is that, everytime I turn on the show, my eyes are assaulted by those two off-their-meds hillbillies and the one guy who's supposed to be the young, hip, Gen-Y correspondent even though he's, like, 40; and the one thing that makes the show worth watching has all but disappeared.

If there was any doubt, Skip proved he is completely brain-dead yesterday. He's the only person in America who doesn't realize Freddy Mitchell was joking when he thanked his hands for being so great.

I realized that a couple of years ago, when Skip was substituting for Jim Rome (and, yes, the only thing worse than Jim Rome's radio show is Skip Clueless guest hosting Jim Rome's radio show, but the radio in my office only gets the one station...cut me some slack), and he claimed that Roy Williams was an overrated coach because - get this - he hadn't sent enough white players to the NBA!?!?!?!?!?!?

I began thinking, 'Well, lessee...Greg Ostertag, Raif LaFrentz, Scott Pollard, Kirk Heinrich...Wait! Why the fuck am I bothering to counter this ridiculous arugment?' Not only was his reasoning for claiming that Roy Williams was overrated completely irrelevant, but it was dead wrong to boot!

He's a fucking lunatic.

Yeah, I saw that. I can not believe what an idiot Bayless is. He's going on and on about how Mitchell was dead serious and it's bad enough Philly has Terrell Owens, now they have to put up with Freddy Mitchell's ego. Skip - he was JOKING! You could hear the the reporters there laughing in the background and you could plainly see that Freddy was just having fun. Well, anybody with half a brain could see that which probably explains why Bayless couldn't.

I don't watch this show, but it is the reason ESPN is dying. Sports punditry and talk instead of real sports is a problem.

Eh, my only reason I watch this show now is if I've watched Sportscenter at least twice and there is nothing else on. Woody "my sources in Japan" Paige and Skip "go the other way" Bayless were the two worst additions this show could have made.

I realized that a couple of years ago, when Skip was substituting for Jim Rome (and, yes, the only thing worse than Jim Rome's radio show is Skip Clueless guest hosting Jim Rome's radio show, but the radio in my office only gets the one station...cut me some slack)


That's his trademark, is to spout opinions that are different and massage information that give him reason to say what he does. He comes up right every now and then, but he makes an ass of himself in the process. However, I gotta defend Jim Rome. I do understand why some people dislike him, but he's not remotely on the level of being an ass that Bayless is on. And at least he can be funny.

I'm not a Woody Paige fan. His humor is lame and he's way off base. Oddly, he's more tolerable when sitting across from Bayless, but on ATH, I dislike him the most. I want real, valid opinions, not vapid "look at me" B.S.

I doubt this show will make it to 2007. Not if ratings matter.

the shark had breakfast this morning after it was jumped.
in the first half hour, they restarted the show 3 times after popping off to the australian open.
three times for the stupid rooster. twice an opening vamp including kayne and thea talking about her illness, and twice the sub host talking about his daughter's 16th birthday. all in the first 30 minutes.
yipes...
