Sunday Night Yakking

I had forgotten just how unsufferable ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" booth was, but I'd like to thank Joe Morgan, Steve Philips and special guest Dan Schulman for reminding me.

The idiots spent last night's Phillies-Dodgers game talking mostly about... other sports, most notably the Lakers game that was going on across town at the time. They spent the last three innings pretty much ignoring the game in front of them to compare notes about which sporting events they've been to- "I've been to the Super Bowl!," "I've been to the Masters!," and on and on.

And then, about an inning after that conversation was supposedly over, Morgan suddenly blurted out, "I know, we should go to Wimbledon!"

Then again, the few times they contributed actual baseball analysis, it was pretty ugly. Morgan, at one point, declared that he doesn't think Brad Lidge's six blown saves so far this year are any kind of big deal because, after all, "if he'd blown three saves this year and three last year instead, no one would be panicking." Oh, come on!

Yeah, Joe Morgan sucks. But not as much as Joe Buck.

LOL - I was thinking the same thing LilB.
