SportsCenter anchor Robert Flores is leaving ESPN after nearly 11 years at the Worldwide Leader.
Can’t a SportsCenter anchor get a bottle of water? Everett eventually came back after the above segment, still sounding like “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
NL MVP Bryce Harper went on SportsCenter to take some questions from Scott Van Pelt, and when answering expressed a reluctance to become a meme. Or was that a may may? A meh meh? No matter how you spell his pronunciation, it had the ironic effect of turning Harper into, yup, a meme.
One of Scott Van Pelt’s recurring bits on radio was taunting fellow Maryland native Tim Kurkjian with that curious dialect known as “Ballimerese”—something that repeatedly made Kurkjian giggle like a little girl. Van Pelt brought it back tonight on SportsCenter, and it had the same effect.
Dan Patrick returned to ESPN’s SportsCenter set tonight for the first time since leaving the Worldwide Leader in 2007. But lest you think his appearance to commemorate Scott Van Pelt’s first episode of the new solo show would bring tidings of a more lengthy homecoming for one half of the “Big Show”, Patrick let…
Some wild shit went down in the Jets’ locker room today, and SportsCenter threw up the Yelling Sports Guys In Suits signal as soon as the news broke. It’s all hands on deck, people! Cris Carter, what’s your fuckin’ take on this, my man?!
It’s tiresome to monitor ESPN blowhard and domestic violence apologist Stephen A. Smith’s daily acts of polluting the Worldwide Leader’s airwaves with his Cro-Magnon attitudes, but here we are. While inexplicably serving on SportsCenter duty last night, SAS cracked wise on Norway’s gorgeous free kick goal yesterday by…
“It’s like the scarecrow in Oz, you get too close to the fire, eventually.. you’re going to get burned. Heh.”
As Jigga's Law states, for every "Ether" there is an equal and opposite "Super Ugly" as the offended party seeks to redress their injuries in diss form. And while Iggy Azalea herself has henceforth been quiet about the smackdown ESPN's Robert Flores laid on her today, her boyfriend Nick Young has come out swinging.
Bruh. BRUH. They don't make lava as hot as my man Robert Flores's diss right there. Like, generations of Azaleas' souls will be burning from this one.
At 1:12 a.m. ET, Jon Heyman broke the news that the Oakland A's had traded Jeff Samardzija to the Chicago White Sox:
ESPN college football reporter Brett McMurphy's ten-year-old daughter took over SportsCenter this morning to count down the five fiercest college football rivalries. This is her second appearance on SportsCenter: last year she reported on Northwestern's peanut-free football game.
Poor Bob Holtzman.
ESPN anchor Hannah Storm signed off this morning's SportsCenter with thoughts on covering the NFL and their handling of Ray Rice, and essentially questioned if the league she enjoys actually cares about female fans, families, or the issue of domestic violence.
Former NFL executive Bill Polian was brought onto SportsCenter this morning to give some insight into the NFL's bungling of the Ray Rice situation. He was specifically asked if he, as someone who has worked in the NFL office, thought it was possible for an NFL executive to have obtained a copy of the tape showing…
Today was Lil Wayne Day on SportsCenter, or something, which means the rapper was on set all day to do zany things and promote his upcoming album. It also meant that he had to freestyle over the SportsCenter theme, which, given how that song goes, was a pretty raw deal for Lil Wayne.
ESPN2 aired tonight's USA-Azerbaijan friendly from Candlestick Park, but it seems SportsCenter anchor Stuart Scott wasn't paying much attention—because the veteran newsman thought the match happened in Western Asia.
