Our final matchup of the 1st Round of the Joe Morgan Memorial pits two champions of awfulness in two very different fields. One, Colin Cowherd, may be the single most disgusting human being in the sports media. Yet, despite all of the reprehensible nonsense Cowherd has spewed over the years, he remains somehow untouchable by ESPN. Meanwhile, Cowherd's opponent has somewhat of a birthright to replace Joe Morgan on AA's Mt. Rushmore. Bobby Valentine certainly hasn't distinguished himself after teaming with Orel Hersheiser on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. But, is his awfulness enough to overcome the vile Cowherd? Don't forget to come back tomorrow for all the Round 1 results and 2nd Round matchups! Let's see how they stack up!
Colin Cowherd vs. Bobby Valentine
Fact File: Host of ESPN Radio's The Herd and co-host of SportsNation on ESPN2
Why He's Here: When polled last month, nearly 85% of respondents said that ESPN should end its relationship with Colin Cowherd. His stereotyping and pontificating are legendary for all the wrong reasons. Very few in the sports media get away with offensive and flat out wrong statements like Cowherd has the ability to do. Cowherd likes to pander to intellectual elites and openly mock large portions of his audience. Thankfully, CBS passed on a sitcom pilot based on the life of Cowherd.

Why He's Here: ESPN finally pulled the plug on Joe Morgan in the Sunday Night booth and in stepped Orel Hershiser and the former Mets manager. However, Valentine hasn't gotten a lot of love from fans in less than a year in the spotlight. In fact, some are even saying they wish they had Morgan back. Yipes. Is there anything worse that can ever be said about an announcer?
