The best pre-game show out there, FOX, has officially jumped the shark.

Michael Strahan is presenting a car to some woman who they gave it away to in a contest. He's going all car salesman on a Sunday morning pre-game show.

Ugh.


Frank Caleiendodnededo isn't ever funny on that show...But he spent half the time he had today going hard on the taterskins. As stupid as the jokes were, it was enjoyable.

perhaps you could explain sd's reasons for "disliking" it as well since you seem to be so in tune with other peoples minds

Nah, never ran across her. Even if I did, I would have never looked twice at her...other than to say, "Ew!"

And no Scott Van Melt...although, there's a lot of delicious shtein in the cafeteria, and Van Pelt is tall as shtein.

Sunday night ratings send strong message to owners who want a lockout
Posted by Mike Florio on October 26, 2009 7:47 PM ET
In past years, regular-season NFL football has at times generated better television ratings than postseason baseball.  And preseason football routinely outdraws regular-season baseball.

This year, however, a pennant-clinching game between the Yankees and the Angels beat the Sunday night game featuring the Cardinals and the Giants, the last two NFC representatives to the Super Bowl.

Per Michael Hiestand of USA Today, the baseball game rang up an 11.4 overnight rating, which means that it was viewed in 11.4 percent of television households in the top 56 urban markets.  Cardinals-Giants registered a 10.4 rating.

So at a time when some owners are pushing for a lockout -- and when the union has at times adopted a "bring it on" posture -- we hope that both sides will realize that the American public has options, and that the sports world would continue spinning in the event the NFL decides to shut its doors for a year or so in the hopes of cramming a bad deal down the players' throats.

That said, high-stakes postseason baseball should outdraw a regular-season NFL game.  Indeed, there will be no Sunday night game in Week Eight because the NFL traditionally avoids going up against the World Series.  And the fact that the numbers were close is further proof that football is the preferred spectator sport.

Still, with college football and postseason baseball and hockey and basketball, folks would miss the NFL -- but they also would find plenty of other things to watch and/or do if pro football went away for a while.

And some of them might not come back when the NFL finally does.

Surprises the hell out of me.

not a massive deal

the game did a 26 in ny and the football did a 9. like more people in ny are gonna choose game 6 over the cardinals. if it was another big market team instead of the giants there, the football game does better.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

ESPN suspended broadcaster Bob Griese for a week after the pro football hall of famer made an on-air, racist joke about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya at Saturday's Ohio State-Minnesota football game (see video).

During the game, a promotional graphic for NASCAR's Chase for the championship showed the top five drivers, but Montoya wasn't among them. When fellow analyst Chris Spielman asked where was Montoya (who is Colombian), Griese replied:

He's out having a taco."

He apologized for the remark later on the broadcast and again Saturday night during ESPN's prime time broadcast. But it wasn't enough. ESPN issued a public apology calling Griese's remark "inappropriate" and suspended him for a week.

Juan needs to call ESPN up and tell them, "he was right...I was having a taco."
