We've called out some of the lighter moments that take place during the live cut-ins during commercial breaks of PTI in the past. In today's episode, Kornheiser has moved on from singing Friday and is now hoping to get up to speed on the latest musical stylings of Kayne West. Wilbon in the background also seems quite confused.
I think one of the more enduring things about Kornheiser is his thirst for pop culture. He seems to enjoy following the latest trends, gossip, tv shows, movies, and music even if he's following a little bit behind the curve. In many ways it's similar your parents but it's more entertaining and not embarrassing.
Today, Mr. Kornheiser I salute you as you are indeed HAM when you want to be.
During Jeter's last at bat with 2 men on, we heard this exchange:
Hershiser: I think he'll hit the ball hard.
Valentine: I think he'll pull the ball.
Now, the semi-felating is expected. But making asinine predictions of this kind is downright awful. I've heard color guys predict a homer or a game winning hit (with a grin as they root for their home town team). But this exchange made me cringe. It's awful announcing at its finest.
