During last night's Rockies-Diamondbacks game, Fox Sports Arizona announcers Mark Grace and Daron Sutton introduced the game while dressed... as stormtroopers.
The costumes were hype for this Saturday's Star Wars Day at Chase Field for the Athletics-Diamondbacks game. The Diamondbcks are essentially advertising it as a giant costume party, so that should be fun for the largely oblivious Diamondbacks fans.
As for Grace and Sutton...the duo has been largely panned by baseball fans, but they can provide mindless entertainment at times. With the way the Diamondbacks are playing this year, they really need to up their entertainment factor to take away from the awful baseball on the field.
Sage Steele is another example of how America craves mediocrity. When she was with CSN Baltimore s few years ago, she was widely regarded as a talking head, not very knowledgeable, and her spat with Brian Billick is legendary. She questioned a basic football move made during a Ravens game, forcing Billick to defend something that was pretty much routine and then told Billick he was wrong for doing so. Needless to say, Billick, no slouch in the ego department, would have nothing more to do with her.
ESPN has made a habit over the past several years of hiring the most inane and brain dead people to anchor SportsCenter and Steele is one of them. To say she is one of their best isn't saying much about ESPN.
Weissman comes off like a tool. Can you imagine her ever saying that to him if he interviewed a female athlete? Ted Baxter lives.
She was "obviously" flirting. Look at the way she subconsciously covers her wedding ring at the start of the interview.
Sage Steele is adorable and seemed to take it in stride. You guys are stretching if you think this was an issue. She's very professional and didn't seem remotely upset.
@Chipotlemonger @awfulannouncing LOLOLOLOL so much sexual tension up there in Bristol. Entertainment & Sex Programming Network.
@awfulannouncing I've met Sage's husband. He's an athletic good looking guy who is very nice. They have 3 kids together. She is very nice!
