Bring Back Stat Boy

First of all, this new guy sucks. And first of all, he shouldn't start every segment with "first of all." And first of all, he should only say "first of all" once per segment, if at all. Stat Boy is sarcastically obnoxious in a humorous manner. This fill-in is just a jackass. BRING BACK STAT BOY! A grateful nation needs you!

Yeah, they should have brought on the Smirnoff Ice winner early during this little stat boy vacation. It's still infinately better than when Tony or Wilbon are gone though..

He is, but it's just too painful. Bring him back!

You mean who is Stat Boy. Well, every day we make horrible errors, and Stat Boy is there to point them out. Drink your Smirnoff Ice, and you too could be Stat Boy for a day.

P.S. He's the third man on Pardon the Interruption, one of the best sports shows on television. Tony and Michael are the leads, and they run through a ton of sports material in a short period of time. In the final minutes, Stat Boy is there to clean up any mess they made or lies they inadvertantly told. Stat Boy is on vacation, and some other idiot is filling in quite poorly.

Don't let the absense of stat boy keep you from checking this show out.

Off on a small tangent...

I thought that PTI was one of ESPN's highest rated shows. If so, then why do they keep getting bumped for golf (ala today and tomorrow), especially OLD MAN GOLF!!! I'd much rather have the .5 hr of those guys than the 2-4 hr. of golf that they show (and I'm a golf fan).

Oh yeah, and the replacement stat boy sucks.

It is a hit. Change to ESPN2 in that time slot - you'll see PTI usually.

ESPN has contractual obligations to the PGA tour from the last contract as far as airing on ESPN (not 2). This was all before PTI, when there was never anything worth watching during the late afternoon anyway.

Anyway, they are taped earlier, not live. So you can usually catch the show earlier or later - check your listings.
