A buddy of mine at ESPN just told me they received a memo today saying that Stephen A. Smith will start anchoring Sportscenter sometime next week.Hmmm that sounds like it could be made up....buuuut I did some searching and found this:
His first show will be Sunday with Bob Ley. I know this b/c I was at a conference earlier this week at which he spoke. He was surprisingly good with his remarks and very candid as you might expect. He had complete control of the room, esp. during the Q&A period.Much more substantial.....still not verified though. It does make sense though. Not in the "sports fans will enjoy it" sense, but more along the "he's crazy and will fit right in with our new let's annoy the crap out of people stance".....sense.
This doesn't surprise me one bit, and I can't wait for Stu "Pink Eye" Scott and S.A.S. to be on the same show.
