It will be interesting seeing Rome and his rival Kornheiser on the same television network. Tony's impression of Rome rocks.
Rome should have Chris...I mean Jim.. Everett on his first show.
WIENER OF THE DAY! July 6, 2002!
Fear can sometimes be a useful emotion. For instance, let's say you're an astronaut on the moon and you fear that your partner has been turned into Dracula. The next time he goes out for the moon pieces, wham!, you just slam the door behind him and blast off. He might call you on the radio and say he's not Dracula, but you just say, "Think again, bat man."
I hate Jim Rome too. The guy is such a smug jackass that seeing him, even just in the ads for his new show (which, considering Anaheim vs. Dallas went into quintuple overtime, I ended up seeing way too many times last night), makes me want to start throwing things at my loved ones.
Unless Jim Everett shows up and sets Rome on fire, then its not worth watching. This show might actually sink below Sports Reporters II on the ESPN food chain.

Caliendo does the WORLD'S GREATEST John Madden impression.
"You may be wondering why I have been making so many references lately to Fox News. The reason is that it is now my cable news network of choice -- because if Iím going to watch the news and be lied to, I want it to be ridiculously obvious that I am being lied to." -- Center for an Informed America, Newsletter #34
Rome is tolerable these days. It's all the inhabitants of the "Jungle" and their "Takes". If I happen to be tuned in, the minute he opens the phones I quit listening. These clowns and their ridiculous, self-referential, Rome-jargon laced tirades are an embarrassment to the human race. I'd love to convene a summit meeting of the Jungle's top callers, lock them in a room and unleash Abdullah the Butcher on them with a can opener.
"Well, you can't involve friendship with business. It has to be one or the other. It's either business or friendship, or hit the bricks!" --Life Lessons from "The Tao of Bobby the Brain Heenan" Uncensored 2000 preview
"As long as the check don't bounce, I guess he's okay with it!" --Former All Pro Giants LB Harry Carson on Bill Parcells joining the hated rival Dallas Cowboys
The e-mails are what make Rome's show, and he can be funny. But all in all his show isnt that great. While the callers are annoying, the worst part of his show is how he kisses the ass of everyone he interviews, even if he was bashing them the week before. And I agree with the MADTV guy doing the Madden impersonation, he is dead on with it. A couple weeks ago I saw him doing a fake commercial for a popcorn maker, funny funny stuff.
Everytime I see that Rome NFL draft ad, I keep expecting him to say "But Im not telling you anything you dont already know..." at the end.
And has he ever had Jim Everett on any of his shows after their little scuffle?
F/A-18E/F "Super Hornet"
The multi-mission F/A-18E/F "Super Hornet" strike fighter is an upgrade of the combat-proven night strike F/A-18C/D. The Super Hornet will provide the battle group commander with a platform that has range, endurance, and ordnance carriage capabilities comparable to the A-6 which have been retired.
Just so you know how rediculously out of touch with reality Jim Rome is, when the Yankees were beating everybody and had, at the time, the best record in baseball ever, and were playing San Diego in the World Series, Jim said that he wished people would stop calling that yankees team the best ever, because all they did was win 116 games. (I think it was 116) Then he went on to predict that the Padres would sweep the Yankees, and that would shut up all the bandwagon jumpers.
I hate "The best team ever" tag. You can't call the Yanks the best team ever when you have not seen all the teams. There should only be "The best team of the decade" arguments. Sports and the way that they are played change as time goes by. To compare a team from the 1920's and a team from the 1990's really would not make sense. Furthermore you can't compare Shaq to Wilt, or Bonds to Ruth, there are so many things to factor in(the rules of the game, the amount of players and teams, their stats in regards to other players of their times.) IMHO To pick one over another weakens their place in the game.
As far as Rome goes, he sucks on radio because it's him or his retarded fans just spouting off their dumb opinions. But on tv he doesn't bother me all that much, because I only watch him when I like his guest. PTI and Around The Horn will still be far better sports shows. Jim Everett should be on the show to keep Rome in line.
