Shannon Sharpe could be a very good fit on a pre-game show, but he's gotta be very careful not to become Deion #2. I think Deion coulda been a good fit because he's got a natural charisma to him and he can be an entertaining guy, but he always seemed more interested in getting his own act over than providing any real insight into the league or the matchups. Michael Irvin is guilty of the same more often than not IMO, but Countdown could cover for it much easier since they have three strong guys around him. Sharpe's a good talker, but has to be aware of not falling into this same trap.
The Toronto Maple Leafs: Hockey's equivalent of the Chicago Cubs, but easier to hate.
I really like Seth Joyner's stuff on the NFL Channel (or whatever it's called). He seems pretty comfortable in front of the camera, but he's not all up in everybody's area like Deion and his ego doesn't seem huge.
Gravity is a contributing factor in nearly 73 percent of all accidents involving falling objects.

He needs to be MORE careful to not be Sterling Sharpe #2. Although I'd love to see CBS and ESPN set up some sort of program where they simulcast the two Sharpe boys going back-and-forth for a half-hour every Sunday.

I've heard this game characterized this way a lot of times now, which diminishes the win on the Chicago side. Not always when a team commits penalties are they the awful, self-inflicted kind, but due to being forced.
