Hbo football picks inside the nfl draft
So with espn needing a host for this years draft after parting ways with Trey Wingo, t he network reportedly has turned to Mike Greenberg.Youd think the network would want to use someone who has a connection to the NFL or college football, but that isnt nearly as important as the opportunity for cross-promotion Greenberg provides.The fact is, Greenberg has sort of become the face of espn.Im not sure theres another employee the Worldwide Leader values more outside of maybe Stephen.Espn broke up a successful morning radio show (.
Mike Mike ) so it could give Greenberg his own morning show (.Get Up ) and then ended up giving Greenberg his own radio show (.So its not a shock espn would go out of its way to give the public even more Mike Greenberg.(If Greenberg isnt your cup of tea, however, you can always watch the draft on ABC where Rece Davis will anchor the coverage.).Now this is the part where Im supposed to get snarky and say espn is giving us more Mike Greenberg even though no one has ever asked for more Mike Greenberg.
I dont want to be mean.Im sure Mike Greenberg is a very nice guy.And its not like hes bad at his job.
I get why espn loves him.Hell be a professional; he wont say or do anything controversial or memorable and hell keep the NFL happy.Those are the most important things for espn.Personally, Id prefer someone who is somewhat entertaining, but like Curtis said, people tune in for the event, not the person calling the event.I love this, inside the NBA bit in which Shaq gets quizzed on the first names of NBA players.Since there has been a lot of talk this week about changing the NBA logo, I'd like to throw my two cents in and say that this should be the NBA logo.
