YOU WANT IRONY? Super Duper Irony? Take Monday Night's CSNBA's ..."Sports Talk Live", hosted by the supremely soft, warm and fuzzy lightweight champion of the world, Jim Kozimor.
Kozimor was joined by that all-knowing sports-update diva expert, Kate Scott, who allegedly knows, uh, in this case, basketball, the NBA. Joining Scott, who is openly gay, was panelist, John Lund, the loudmouth 95.7 FM midday co-host. Lund is a nobody who frequently makes dick jokes, and makes fun of women also pokes fun of lesbians. How original. I have turned off The Game because Lund is not only not funny, but a juvenile delinquent who is a certified mental case. A true misogynist ---which begs the question? What in the hell was Comcast thinking when they invited on Scott to share the panel with Lund? It's particularly galling and hypocritical because CSNBA doesn't like to rock the boat. They are the holy grail of keeping it plain and vanilla so as not to upset the viewing public, and more importantly, their client base like the Warriors, Giants, 49ers, Raiders and to a lesser extent, the A's and Sharks. Those latter are Comcast's bread and butter; anything even remotely jeopardizing the beauty shop is anathema to treason. More on that later.
So Scott labored on about something; I think it was the Warriors, I forget, but as usual, it was all nothing, NADA. Which is why the local outlets have Scott on so they can cater to the LGB crowd, which would be perfectly fine and legit in PC-laded SF. Only, Scott, doesn't know jack about sports. She's the TOKEN's token; a blond woman who has a cutesy voice and disposition so people like Brian Murphy and Jim Kozimor can defer; and make for brownie points that CSNBA honcho, Ted Griggs can pass off to headquarters in Philadelphia: "See, Comcast is DIVERSE!" More to the point, the young horny lads in the Bay Area watching an obscure, cable sports-talk show can have a lallapolooza --a collective jack-off, if you will. And that's all it really is; if Scott looked like Rosie O' Donnell she wouldn't be on. Say all you want about Erin Andrews (well, maybe not this); she's hot, but she knows her sports; so too other female sports pundits like Rachel Nichols. Scott doesn't know shit, a certified dim-witted numskull with the IQ of a hyena but treated as if she was the second coming of Christime Brennan.
To pair a rank amateur like Lund with painfully dull Scott is like buying Kobe beef and placing it on a bed of spam and mayonnaise --Kozimor is wonder bread; what a fantastic Fresno supper. Care for some after-dinner mints?
