FRESH BREEZE. Is his exile over? Did he submit to the obscene, unspeakable sexual torture rites administered by ESPN higher-ups in torchlit cloisters by men in opera masks and red robes? Paris is worth a mass, and having Ron Franklin back would be worth a ruined ass, since he is listed as a returning announcer and, if there is any justice on this harsh prairie of existence, will be calling games of significance (i.e. not late November Big 12 games) on Saturday afternoons.
That ESPN still has Mike Patrick and Craig James calling some SEC night games is an obscenity, but progress is always an incremental thing while disaster happens all at once. We all know that’s still Ron’s seat, and everyone else is just keeping it warm for the Silver Fox’s magnificent ass.*
Ditto on being subjected to Craig James instead of Uncle Ron, but I’ll take what I can get from the WWL. (Especially if it doesn’t involve Pam Ward’s voice.)
