OTL To Kick Off "Mike Vick Night" With A Special Report

Monday, December 10, 2007


Outside The Lines will air an in-depth look at Mike Vick's sentence this afternoon during an hour long special starting at 3pm. We all knew this day was coming, but unfortunately this is going to lead to a long night.

The amount of coverage surrounding the sentencing is sure to be overkill, and I only have one question for you. Do you even care?

Of course this is (or rather was) a big story, but we already knew he was going to jail and we all had an idea of how long. It was first mentioned on Sports Center this morning and by the time we get through OTL, ATH, PTI, and SC we'll have a nice long 3+ hour Football game featuring Vick's team to deal with.

It's going to be a fun live-blog tonight folks! Pardon me if I'm a little grouchy by the time we get to Tony's diatribe before kickoff.

Thankfully, there's a "Closer" re-run and a new ep of "Saving Grace", so I won't be tempted to tune into the Three Stooges, er, I mean MNF.

yes we did know that he was going to jail and we had an idea of how long that might be. Today though we actually learned for a fact how long he would be going to prison. Are you really criticizing ESPN for covering a very big sports/news story?

You're really stretching with this one AA.

If you don't like it you could always change the channel or pickup a book. Criticizing ESPN for covering a major story like this is pretty lame.

There are all sorts of things to criticize ESPN for but this? Come on

It's not necessarily a criticism of them covering the story, but how Monday Night Football isn't about Football anymore and how many different ways you say he got 20 something months.

Who is this sketch artist? Worst drawing ever. Was this first place at an elementary school art fair?

Tonight Tony Korny will give an impassioned, deep, erudite soliloquy on the dangers a wealthy young black man faces.

AA has nothing better to do then bash ESPN every chance he gets, this should be no surprise and not any different than ever other day on this site.

whats worse, someone spending time writing a blog bashing espn, or someone taking the time to come to a site that does the former and talk shit about them

But you people keep coming back, don't you? The title of the blog is Awful Announcing, not I Think I'll Please Every Mook That Owns a Computer.

Oh, and loathe as I am to quote the Shrutebag, "if you don't like it, turn the dial."
