Are Super Bowl Ads Still Worth It?

This Sunday is “Super Bowl Sunday” and that term is not just referring to the championship game of the National Football League.  Super Bowl Sunday is also a critical day for advertising creative directors as their top commercials are on display for the largest TV audience of the year. The Super Bowl is a unique […]


ESPN’s Tom Jackson has Lost all Credibility

Scott started his long post-game rant with, “To all the nonbelievers, especially you Tom Jackson!” aiming his displeasure at the ESPN analysts 30-10 prediction favoring the Patriots.

Note to Ron Franklin: It’s 2011

While many of us have been on vacation or at least taking it a bit easy, higher-ups at ESPN have had a tough couple of weeks. First there was the plagiarism incident with ESPNews Sportscaster Will Selva,  then to further complicate things College Football announcer Ron Franklin called sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards “sweet-baby” and “a-hole” prior to […]


2010 ESPN’s Most Viewed Year

Despite turning 30 this year, ESPN hasn’t gone through the normal malaise and mental anguish most of us do when we leave our 20′s. No weight gain, no thinning hair, no settling for what’s comfortable. In fact, the ESPN family of networks just posted their most-viewed year and their most watched 4th quarter ever, according to Nielsen. The 4th […]

Confessions of a Sports TV Spouse

I’ve been with a Sports TV guy since the late 90s. When he first started working in Sports TV, he was a bright-eyed 21-year-old ready to take on the world. He had aspirations of meeting Joe Montana and to be on the field when the Red Sox won the World Series. Instead, he met Don […]

In Defense of ESPN’s Will Selva

I’ll admit it, I’m a slow writer. When I first started working in Sports Television I marvelled at our team of writers that could bang out 15 scripts in a hour without breaking a sweat. I’m the opposite, I write something, hate it, erase it, start again… wash, rinse, repeat. In the deadline driven world […]

How ESPN Monday Night Football Adjusted in Minnesota

Producing a live event the size of Monday Night Football is hard work. Under normal circumstances the production crew will begin game preparations on Thursday for a Monday night game.

UConn Women Streak Past UCLA, But Who’s Looking?

I live a mere three miles from the XL Center in Hartford, where the the UConn women’s basketball team won their record-setting 89th straight game Tuesday night.  The Huskies destroyed Florida State  93-62; surpassing the previous streak set by the UCLA men in 1974. Back in May, I paid good money to see Pearl Jam at the same venue.  […]


Colin Cowherd Went Way Out of Bounds

On his Wednesday radio program, ESPN personality Colin Cowherd alleged that Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett struggled through a career worst season last year because of the distraction of his on-going divorce. One problem with Cowherd’s theory, according to Burnett’s agent, Darek Braunecker, the pitcher was not, and is not, going through a divorce. Lets forget about the factual errors […]
