Surrounded by stupidity
This morning, ESPN's Colin Cowherd made the unfounded assertion that "Outside of Boston and St. Louis, fans are much more passionate about their pro football teams than they are about their MLB teams."
Colin has obviously never been to a game at Mays Field, Shea Stadium, or Yankee Stadium, just to name a few. The fans there are dead serious when it comes to baseball.
Cowherd is a prime example of what is wrong with sports talk radio: the announcers think they have to spout their unfounded assertions without any regard for the truth; they detract from any serious discussion of the issues, just as Fox "News" cheapens our political discourse.
