Sad Day For America


Pro Football Talk has the news that ESPN has chosen to remove Emmitt Smith from their Sunday NFL Countdown and America is the worse off for it.

Sure, Emmitt is a terrible commentator, he often seems totally lost, mispronounces or misidentifies players constantly, makes up words and generally says inane and uninteresting comments, but… wait, no this is all a good thing, there is no but.

Smith will still be a part of the 27-hour coverage of Monday Night Football (along with Trent Dilfer, yikes!) but his place on the Sunday Countdown will be taken by Cris Carter.

Here’s the official ESPN announcement:

Former All Pro wide receiver Cris Carter has been named an analyst for Sunday NFL Countdown (11 a.m. ET) and Monday Night Countdown (7 p.m.), ESPN’s popular NFL pre-game studio shows. In addition, Emmitt Smith will move this fall from Sunday NFL Countdown to the new expanded Sunday morning editions of SportsCenter (8 a.m. and 10 a.m.) where he will offer insight and analysis during NFL segments. Smith will also continue to travel to the Monday Night Football game site each week for Monday Night Countdown.

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THIS ALONG!
