The Greatest Sports TV Show Ever

You know I can’t stand the Cowboys, or Dallas sports. You also know I’m no big fan of Michael Irvin.

However, the greatest sports-related show in the history of television was Michael Irvin’s “Fourth and Long”.

This is cruelty to humans…unless you realize every single drill Irvin puts these players through, he’s likely had to do at some point. For me, it was a stark awakening to what it means to be an elite athlete. Considering Irvin’s winner…Jesse Holley, made it to the NFL and barely got off the bench, that makes us think about what the guys who play and star on Sundays really put themselves through. There was plenty of controversy, though. I still don’t know why Irvin cut McCann, other than the guy was white and didn’t fit Irvin’s notion of a wide receiver.

I’d love to see Irvin put on his show during this summer. It would pique the interest of NFL fans while this labor nonsense is straightened out.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
