Wilbon's Vote For The HOF Goes To The Hawk (Harrelson)

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

This is obviously just a small slip of the tongue (that's what she said!), but cracked me up none-the-less. On PTI last evening Kornheiser and Wilbon were discussing the Baseball HOF and Andre Dawson not being voted in. On the throw to SportsCenter Wilbon tried to put his vote in for Hawk Dawson, but mistakenly yelled out Hawk Harrelson.....



Noooooooo! Do not ever utter the words "Harrleson" and "Hall of Fame" ever again. Please dear god do not even joke about stuff like that. Oh and where the hell was Wilbon? Having dinner with the Tanners???

Then maybe he's staying with the Winslows--except he's probably to white bread even to stay with them. (God, I hope that's right)

The sad thing is, that this is the guy who thinks, for example, that the media knows better than the computers in college football (he talked about it again yesterday). Sure, there should be a playoff, but the media are worse than the computers. Because if he can say something as stupid as that, God knows what he's doing when he's filling out the polls.

This is what happens when your entire program consists of getting two idiots to yell at each other. Wilbon's gotta scream over annoying sound effects and even more annoying Kornholer. ESPN is from the "If I'm louder, I'm right" school of debate.

And, the fact that Andre Dawson is not in the hall is a travesty.

The only HOF Hawk Harrelson belongs in is the one for Really Annoying Asshats.

At least Wilbon gave me a nice laugh as a White Sox fan. And by the way Hawk is a great announcer, if you are a Sox fan.

Good point, queefer. Is PTI the show with one guy complaining, four guys complaining, or one of the shows with two guys complaining?

New theme song request for PTI: Jesse and the Rippers covering the penguin dance song.

I'm not a Sox fan, but whenever one of the 20 or so White Sox games are on WGN, I'll tune by.
Stretch! STRETCH!!

I kept expecting to hear the Too Close for Comfort theme at some point, but Wilbon wouldn't know what it is.
