I'm a few days late to this story, but it looks like it's the end of the road for Stephen A. Smith at ESPN.

    My last day at ESPN is May 1. It’s been a wonderful, wonderful ride, filled with great accomplishments, great memories and, most importantly, great friendships. It’s difficult to express how appreciative I am to everyone at ESPN for all they’ve done for my career. But nothing lasts forever. It’s time to move on.

    While my love for sports has never dissipated– of course, I’ll never let go of sports– my desire to venture beyond sports into the world of news, politics and entertainment has grown. Where that will take me? Who knows, but you can keep up with me right here on as well as on Twitter to find out! I’ll just be moving on with some degree of sadness, remembering all the friends I’ll leave behind.

The thought of SAS as the next Olbermann is a disturbing one, indeed. But at least he's finally off my TV and off my radio...for now.

Now if they could just dump Skip Bayless, they might be on to something.

He's made some appearances on CNN before, so seeing him on cable news wouldn't be a complete surprise. Of course, it's easy to say you want to expand beyond sports when you've refused to renew a contract with the only real player in the sports news game. Unless he wanted to be on NBA TV or TNT's NBA coverage, what other sports options does he have? He's covered other sports, but the NBA is really his strength.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Mangini might not have had balls, but he DID have soft, supple breasts." (SEADAWG)

Any word on how much money ESPN's gonna save by cutting him?

No, not his salary, but having to feed his crippling Cheez Doodles habit.

Now it looks like I'll only have to switch ESPN when Bayless or LeBatard are on.
