While NBC has been criticized for crafting fictional drama in their primetime coverage during the Olympics, we all know the sports show that sets the bar in fiction and make believe... First Take. While you (hopefully) haven't been watching First Take during the Olympics, it's time for us to fulfill our watchdog duties on the insanity coming from the self-proclaimed worldwide leader in sports and their resident carnival barker, Skip Bayless.
Today, Skip Bayless went on a national television show today and said he wasn't impressed by the greatest Olympic champion of all-time, Michael Phelps. Phelps has won a record 15 gold medals and a record 19 overall medals. He's the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, going back to 1896. And yet, like the cartoon character that his television persona is, Skip Bayless can say whatever he wants outside the realm of logic and reason.no comments
