Anti-Social Networking With Colin Cowherd

Posted in Sports Radio, The Internet at 12:42 pm by

“As a father, I’d be embarrassed to have a MySpace page,” insisted ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd (above) during his Thursday broadcast. Declaring those who waste their time on such trival matters to be “irrelevent…with irrelevent careers,” Cowherd stated with some authority that “no adult who is any sort of a player would be on MySpace,” comparing those who frequent such sites to “the sort of person who drinks 14 beers and pukes at a Hawks game, or someone throwing batteries at an Eagles game.”

Much as I hate to publicly disagree with a morning host whose grip on the cultural zeitgeist barely extends past disc one of ‘Buzz Ballads’, Cowherd is, as usual, hopelessly, out of touch and full of shit for a living. Gilbert Arenas isn’t a player? Scott Schafer isn’t happening? Jessica Hopper, “irrelevent”?

Still, there was some slight qualification in Cowherd’s hate fest. “Now, if you’re a record company executive,” he reasoned, “I suppose you have a good reason to be on MySpace.”

    Here’s another non-loser, the girl who did the striptease in the Snow White get-up on America’s Got Talent.

    Drinking 14 beers is de riguer for attending Hawks games. How else are you supposed to pretend that Tyronn Lue and Royal Ivey are NBA-quality point guards?

    Speedy Claxton’s arrival might have a positive impact.in Philips Arena and in the public health arena.

    typical cowherd rant…his radio show is basically the aural equivalent of rubbernecking for me, still he’s better than dan patrick when it comes to stuff like this. the spanning the globe thing is normally good though.
