What's the only thing more vapid, insipid, mind-numbing, and tedious than celebrity interviews on the daytime SportsCenter? Celebrity interviews featuring the star of a terrible, terrible movie (Kevin James of Grown Ups 2) talking about painfully dumb topics ("Should Fireman Ed return to lead Jets cheer?")
Fireman Ed, really. That was a topic today on SportsCenter. Fireman. Ed.
You thought it couldn't get worse than poor Mike Hill asking Liam Neeson about Tim Tebow? Wrong! I can't think of a more pointless, unsatisfying two minutes in the 30+ year history of SportsCenter... and yet, here we are.
And we wonder why ESPN's ratings are down?
Thanks Cork Gaines for the screengrab.
"Well, what did James think? Should Fireman Ed return or not?
I'm waiting oh so anxiously for the answer because I have an autographed Fireman Ed helmet and was wondering if I should sell it on EBay or Craig's List."

This is just wrong on so many levels. I can't believe I'm even commenting here - I should just be ignoring this...
