The Twisted Logic Of Rob Dibble

Posted in Baseball, Sports Journalism, Sports Radio at 1:59 am by

After reading the Dibster’s latest — a fascinating treatise on short term goals versus long term planning — I’ve decided that his considerable skills are being wasted on Fox and XM.

PBS sorely needs to re-run the entire 9-part “Baseball” series, except with Dibble providing new commentary for each episode, free-association style. If Ken Burns objects, just send him a link to Rob’s most recent column. You’ll hear no further complaints, because Burns will probably have shot himself before he reaches the end.

    Thanks for the posting on this, CSTB. I had three thoughts on the subject:

    1. Ken Burns dead means we’d be treated to a rich panoply of posthumous projects. Even so, it’d be worth rooting for if not aiding.

    2. Every couple months I somehow find myself watching a random segment _The Best Damn Sports Show Period_, and I can still report that even if the heater was at the temple, _George Michael’s Sports Machine_ would still probably “win”.

    3. Can anyone think of a worse dressed ex-pro-athlete on a nightly basis than Rob Dibble?

    Oh, one more:

    4. Sports talk radio is to my ears unlistenable; how can you take it?
