There was also a pretty glaring screengrab snafu.  When Jose Bautista was introduced before taking his swings in the 1st round, he was keyed as having a Yankees logo.  Hopefully someone can grab that image, I don't have it, but remember laughing about it as it happened.

Bill Murray was in there.  He was the white guy on the Tune squad.

@chokenojoke @perlick29 @scoknuts That's very much a matter of opinion.  I find B&C to be highly entertaining, while Mike and Mike are just turds as competition.  Like most ESPN shows they only get ESPN contracted guests to react to anything. Plus they literally can't talk about anything other than football.  But that's my opinion, and most of NY's as well.  Boomer and Carton and Al Dukes and Jerry Recco are pretty great.

@scoknuts except nothing of what Keith said is remotely true for those of us who live in NY.  The FAN as stated in the article, reams ESPN 98.7.

Always blame Broussard.  I'm still waiting for the breaking news from that scumbag that Dwight has signed with Houston a day after the fact.  But the best part is ESPN's ticker that read: "Kobe Bryant unfollows Howard on Twitter".  Like anyone cares.  Here's the photo.  Hope it works. http://instagram.com/p/bbVwmLAKIw/

They remind me of the guys from "Sportsnight" on ABC back in the day.  But that show only lasted 2 seasons...

Saw this on twitter: Doc on @WEEI about @BillSimmons: "He did everything he could to get me fired. Wrote letters, wanted to sit down w/ owners to talk about it."

@illinifan1280 @perlick29  I agree, I am mostly a fan of his writing when his homerism doesn't spin out of control.  He's much better when given the time to compose his thoughts.  But on live TV, his delivery isn't executed the same way, his co-hosts don't get it like you said, and his voice for the most part is outright annoying.  My wife won't listen to him speak at all because it ticks her off.

@MikeDatTiger @perlick29 Maybe that's more the producers' fault.  At a certain point someone needed to get in his ear.  He was wearing the piece but wasn't getting the info right.  That plus I should include he made his usual variety of jokes that fell flat.  A lot.

Can't wait for when you guys do the grades for last night's draft.  Simmons was beyond atrocious last night.  "Uh, wait guys my mind is blanking... who drafts 10th?"  "So you mean the Sixers gave up a first round pick and Jrue Holiday?"  No Bill. for the 14th time, the Sixers get a first round pick.  He stunk up the joint last night, and engaged in a petty feud.  Who cares if Doc didn't want to re-build.  You think Phil Jackson and Popovic stayed and would stay for a re-build?

I'm a New Ro grad, and was also their local TV play by play guy for 4 years.  Great to see a moment like this, but if you want to know why the officials sprinted off the court, it's a little deeper than they made a highly controversial call.  It's because this rivalry between the schools can get really nasty, and it's usually pretty one-sided dating back to the days of NBA player Ben Gordon playing on Mt. Vernon.  These students HATE each other.  But after all is said and done... Let's GO HUGUENOTS!

Carton isn't bashful, but he's hilarious, and he rightfully ripped Haney.  He and Boomer are the only crew to listen to in NY in the morning.

You guys missed the mark on this story. I'm not a Duke fan by any means but Len Elmore is as anti-Blue Devils as it gets. His hatred is palpable as a Maryland grad. Listen to the actual call. It's not "OHHhhhh OHHHhhhhh" as you guys wrote. It's: ""OHHhhhh, OHHHhhhhh, Ohhhhhhh... YEAH!!!!!!" He actually screams yeah! How was that not the worst part of the call?????

Big fans of the site by the way.
