The Dallas Morning News has broken the news as gently as possible, but it still stings: after two glorious years of broadcasting gold, Emmitt Smith is out at ESPN.
Why is this sad news? Because Emmitt Smith was one of the greatest broadcasters that the world has ever seen. In a world where most people are forced by the Man to use such boring things as "proper syntax" and "words that exist", Emmitt boldly blazed his own trail through an alternate grammatical universe. Here's hoping that Kissing Suzy Kolber still finds a way to work him in now and again. Goodnight, sweet prince.
