SAS Watch, Day 3: Killin' it!!!
Day three of Quite Frankly, and my hopes are back up through the sky. For those of you that missed it, the subject was NFL holdouts; guests were Heinz Ward, some agent, and some "sports attorney." Stephen A. really is fearless, and it rubs off on others. He will not let an ounce of bullshit into that studio, and it emboldens his guests to not fuck around, say what they feel like they really meant it, and actually have an honest conversation. Everyone's the better off for it, and Stephen A. really is much, much more than just the players' journalist. This is Outside the Lines with the gloves off, everything that the other shouting shows wish they could be (though, to be fair, PTI is a screwball buddy flick and Around the Horn an ensemble comedy about journalism).
Plus you can see him just itching to let loose about the Association. He'll make the season at least 1000 times more interesting than it would have been already.
Tomorrow's interview with Larry Brown should be essential viewing. And would someone please send me a link to the Iverson show? I'm beginning to worry that it might even topple the KG/John Thompson encounter, and I still haven't seen it yet!!
