  1. You know, I’m really disappointed that Linda Cohn didn’t make it. Maybe it’s because I’m a girl and I can’t stand to watch women who make it look like we really should just go home and cook dumplings, but she is AWFUL. Stu Scott-Linda Cohn would be the single worst SportsCenter ever.

  2. Not only would it be unbearable to listen to, but you’d have to look at his glass eye/lazy eye combo, interspersed with shot of that horse-toothed grin. not recommended for the dinner hour.

  3. Having been dissatisfied with ESPN for some time now, I figured the only way to influence a monopoly is to become part of their focus group, so I joined ESPN Viewer Zone a while back to fill out surveys about their programming.

    Today, I got this:

    Dear ESPN Viewer Zone Member,

    Remember, all the information you provide us is kept strictly confidential. It is used for classification purposes only. Your specific information will never be given to anyone outside of ESPN, and we will never to try to sell you anything.

    Oh, I hope I’m “selected” for this one. Of course, my sole opinion probably doesn’t mean much, but it would be fun.

  4. This TypeKey thing is annoying. It keeps logging me out for no reason. And, yes, I clicked the “don’t you dare log me out for two weeks or else” box.

  5. You don’t have to use it, Joey. (I don’t.) I’m just suggesting to everyone to have an account in case I have to go to moderated comments.

  6. No! I care about my online reputation! I must use TypeKey to prevent the unscrupulous masses from impersonating me and destroying all I have built!

  7. JoeyT,
    You are correct to do so. There are many out there who are just waiting for the right opportunity to impersonate you and destroy your well-deserved reputation. No doubt there are rogue agents waiting for the perfect moment out there lurking. Not to use TypeKey would thus keep me awake at night, fearing the possibilities. I, myself, would worry about this–except that I am a mere facsimile of myself and have absolutely no reputation to speak of–indeed, a bad reputation might be better than what I have.
