Agent to the stars

Talk about your unholy trinity:

While Finebaum has been off the radio for the past three months, he has been busy elsewhere.

Prior to leaving WJOX, he hired a new national agent, Nick Khan, whose clients include political commentator Keith Olbermann, CNN legal analyst Nancy Grace…

How this guy manages to stay sane interests me.  Unless he was never sane in the first place.

I wonder if he throws a client Christmas party.

    Frankly, his appeal escapes me …

    You mean I can start listening to the XM College Sports channel again in the afternoons without having to hear his show?

      +1 All day is good during CFB season, except for the 3-7 time slot. I hope Sirius/XM will look for someone with a broader perspective than one state.

        You keep those negative reviews up and both the Tuscaloosa and Auburn militia chapters of the great and sovereign (“We’re better than the other Bookend”) State of Alabama are going to seek and destroy your pecan trees, even those without webworms

        • Hey don’t blame all of us for the virus spreading. It’s the gawkers from other states that have caused the spread.

            Paul is nationwide or at least as far as Iown. He’s what Jerry Springer would be like had Jerry not gone to Tulane, had not been mayor of Cincinnati, had not dated strippers and had not been on the television.

    This year’s Nick Kahn Christmas Kwanza Islamic New Year Gala promises to be even more risqué and feature dancing. With the addition of Paul, two out of three will be topless and, as usual, the third one will bring his cat. Orders are in place for bouncers to keep Paul’s callers from breaking into the party so that the current outbreak of intellectual cholera can, within a reasonable degree of medical probability, be contained

    Nick Kahn must wake up every morning trying to figure out how to make chicken salad out of chicken shit.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Finebaum squirreled his way onto the SEC Network.

    Forgotten tidbit: he was also a finalist for the College Gameday gig when Herbstreit was hired. I remember it being talked about some on the air way back when. I guess we should thank the Lord for the years before the locusts came.

      I have less issue with FBomb as a host than I do with his unwillingness to limit a couple of dozen callers dominate his show with such a narrow range of discussion. Sure, he is a homer but you can ignore his perspective and still have point/counterpoint with callers who know/feel about more than one and a half programs. Never have understood the “most powerful voice in the SEC” promo, he was a one trick pony before Sirius screwed up and hired him, and he still is….only people driving outside of the Alabama border can hear him.

      “It wouldn’t surprise me if Finebaum squirreled his way onto the SEC Network.”

      That would simply be awesome. Especially if Golden Flake sponsored it.

      If not, I’d take Finebaum in a straight-up trade for Granny but that’s certainly no compliment to Paul. At least Paul by reason of his exposure to things hazardous would be much better at dealing with Mark May. Plus we wouldn’t have to hear about South Carolina and Notre Dame. Why won’t he even talk about Arkansas? His bowl victory there (Orange, I think) was the only time, I ever thought he did anything meaningful but then I remembered that only one bowl a year is meaningful.

      • Macallanlover

        That win in the Orange Bowl was absolutely his finest hour. As I remember it he had suspended “double digit” number of starters for disciplinary reasons, took on a stronger foe (OU?) and whipped that ass. Have to admit it, that fooled me for a while and I became a fan. Then came ND, the Jets, etc, then a personal experience with him and I learned what a scum he was. As if needed, SOS told me some SC stories about him that added to my conviction of how shallow Granny really is.

    • It wouldn’t surprise me if Finebaum squirreled his way onto the SEC Network.

      There is a rumor to that effect going around.
