One of the best. How he didn't win the Ford Frick award is beyond me.
On the flip side, congrats to ABC for hiring Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to "I like it, I love it" for every halftime highlight show throughout the "Monday Night Football" season. Just last week, my buddy House and I were discussing Cosell's classic highlight narratives in the '70s, and how nobody had approached them since, and I told House, "Only one thing could ever come close, and I know it's a long shot, but what if ABC hired Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to 'I Like it, I Love It' for each week of NFL highlights throughout the season?" And wouldn't you know, it happened! See, dreams can come true. --- Bill Simmons, www.sportsguy.net
I'm gonna give Chan Ho the benefit of the doubt for this season due to injuries... I gave Hampton the same benefit coming into this season - and he proved he still blew. Park is playing for a shitty team and isn't healthy...BAD combination.
