Welcome Back Dana

Monday, January 28, 2008


Our good friend Dana Jacobson is back on First Take today from the studio while everyone else is on vacation in Arizona. With the weather the way it is in Arizona, she's probably better off in the studio though. Jacobson addressed the roast issue briefly and then went right in to the show....

"I want to once again say how truly sorry I am for my poor choices and bad judgment," Jacobson said. "I've taken responsibility for what I did say and do, and realize it was wrong. ... I have already learned a lot."
I think you can take that as an admission of the quotes that have been floating around the interwebs are spot on and that she's ready to be forgiven. On a different note, Donovan McNabb is taking Skip Bayless to task on the show from Arizona and is actually pretty darn good. I'll see if I can get some good video from that matchup, but I'm ready to move past this Jacobson, so you won't be getting a clip of her 4th apology.

A carrot stick could take Skip Bayless to task.

Skip basically writes the opposition's arguments when he gives his opinions.

I'm not watching the show -- did they draw a thick white line in front of Donovan's chair so he felt more comfortable? Is he sitting on a bench or in a chair? I kid, I kid...

Off-topic: From the Dan Patrick show, this LT bashing won't end:

LT on the sideline

I caught a couple minutes of the McNabb-Bayless exchange, and it just reaffirmed my feelings about Skippy; he's a tool.

If anyone has video from Frank Caliendo on M&M this morning it was hilarious.

I wonder if the Ombudsman will take this on next month. I would initially think she wouldn't care, but when people protest outside the studio, I bet she puts at least a paragraph in there.

"I have already learned a lot."

Oh, what, not chugging vodka in public?

What is she, about 40-45?

Bet on it, she'll doing something stupid again.

I bet the ombudswoman has a take on this. An on air personality was suspended for comments made at an event and then ESPN pushed it under the rug. This is the stuff she lives for.

BTW they edited the apology from the noon replay.

according to a google search numerous sources list her birthday as Nov 5, 1971 (36).

Worse news: According to my Comcast cable program guide, the Mike Tirico show is going to be simulcast on ESPN2. I hope that either my program guide is wrong or this is only for Super Bowl week.

The mold is set at 30.

for example, Bill Clinton will not all of a sudden stop rimming interns because he "learned a lot".

and while we're at it, what the hell was she wearing?

I feel like quoting Stuart Scott:

"Is that how you show up for work?"
Who taught them how to dress for a roast? I guess that's what you get when you shamelessly self-promote.
