Emmitt Smith's Role With ESPN Gets Reimagined

The signs were all there that Emmit Smith's time mumbling, bumbling, stumbling on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown was going to be short-lived, especially when the WWL picked up Cris Carter post-"Inside The NFL", but he's still not completely out of a job. No, Smith has not been banished to some verb conjugation seminar… » 7/29/08 12:30pm 7/29/08 12:30pm

Media Approval Ratings: Emmitt Smith

We're not sure if Emmitt Smith is going to lose any face time on ESPN now that Cris Carter is hanging around ... but we have our suspicions. Heck, they didn't even let Emmitt be a part of the draft coverage. » 5/13/08 1:05pm 5/13/08 1:05pm

Emmitt Smith Is A Man Of Letters

We never thought we would ever be saying this, but after watching almost a full season of Emmitt Smith on ESPN ... we kind of miss Michael Irvin. We know. We're so ashamed. » 11/28/07 1:35pm 11/28/07 1:35pm

Why Can't They Just Leave Poor Michael Vick Alone?


Well, now that legal expert Emmitt Smith has weighed in on the Michael Vick situation — saying the feds are just leaning on Vick to get "to everyone else," though we're trying to figure out who's more involved that the guy who slammed a dog into the ground until he died, we can wrap the whole matter up, yes?… » 7/23/07 11:40am 7/23/07 11:40am

Let's Go To The Studio, Where It's Jimmy With Keggy And The Gang

Considering that FOX has barely showed any college football this year and therefore has no established halftime "in the studio" team, we were curious how they would handle last night, which after all was the supposed biggest game of the year. We admire their conclusion: They just picked two retired players who were… » 1/09/07 2:45pm 1/09/07 2:45pm

Oh Miller Don't Wanna Dance With Somebody

And thankfully, I won't have to watch him feel the heat with somebody. With somebody who (somebody who) loves him. Sigh.

The other reason Miller's declining to get down boogie? Reigning champ Emmitt Smith. Yeah, apparently Miller told , "Emmitt ruined it for all athletes because he was so good." No, no, Reggie.…

Emmitt Smith, You Are A Champion! The Emptiness Is Temporarily Gone!

It appears that American can finally release its collective tension: "Dancing With The Stars" has finally crowned a winner. And it's none other than ... Emmitt Smith! Yes, the former Cowboys (and Buzzsaw) running back emerged victorious last night, barely edging out Mario Lopez, and any contest in which you barely… » 11/16/06 10:30am 11/16/06 10:30am

Unfortunately, It Appears Emmitt's Going To Be On This Show For A While

Last night, Emmitt Smith continued his inevitable decline into post-athlete career depression by "shining" on "Dancing With The Stars," impressing the judges with his ... aw, jeez, we can't even type this without feeling bad about ourselves and everything about sports. » 9/13/06 1:45pm 9/13/06 1:45pm

Go Toward The Light, Emmitt

You thought that finishing his career flat on the turf of Sun Devil Stadium was the most embarassing final image of all-time rushing champ Emmitt Smith one could come up with. » 8/07/06 5:45pm 8/07/06 5:45pm

Emmitt Smith Encourages You To Keep Looking At Him

We didn't actually watch it, and we don't have video or anything, but apparently the Miss Universe contest was on NBC last night. The only real interesting thing about beauty contests — other than, "Will one of them fall down? Please?" — is the celebrity judges, and last night's battle had some doozies. You had Sean… » 7/24/06 12:45pm 7/24/06 12:45pm
