I’ve already posted about what a whiny douche bag Bob Costas turned out to be on the subject of sports blogging.
So what do you think you get when you have Costas host a show with Deadspin’s Will Leitch and the incredibly full of himself sports journalist Buzz Bissinger?
Well, what you get is some of the stupidest nonsense ever broadcast. [Note: Some of the commentary is definitely NSFW. Be warned.] It’s simply amazing to listen to someone so oblivious to a generational gap. You get the impression that if Bissinger ever took in something like The Daily Show he’d bitch about why people don’t watch The CBS Evening News like they should.
Tone deaf doesn’t even begin to describe the guy. Not that Costas was much better.
Leitch’s restraint was pretty admirable. You can read more of his thoughts about the show here.
