year, $36 million dollar contract to join the Awful Announcing team. Unfortunately, the contract was
voided just a few days later, after he failed a mandatory performance enhancing drug test.
Aaron is a sports enthusiast since birth, spending way too much time during his developmental years
watching sports, and not nearly enough time talking to girls. Aaron is a graduate of the University
of Connecticut, and runs the not quite award winning site, www.aarontorres-sports.com, amongst
his many writing gigs. He also may be the most lenient of all the Awful Announcing writers, even
occasionally finding Lou Holtz to be entertaining. In a related story, he may not make it here very long.
I kinda agree with PackerFan. Yes, First Take has went from good to awful with the format change last fall. But guess what - viewership has went up since. Easy way to remedy: if you don't like it, change the channel. Don't watch. Don't comment about it.
I've now blocked ESPN2 at home - if I want to watch a sporting event on there, I'll just watch it on ESPN3 no problem.
Matt, your permanent crusade against Skip Bayless is getting out of hand. I watched this live and while it was definitely a funny moment, he did not "flip out." Stephen A has extremely dramatic facial expressions already and when you take freeze frames of somewhere when they are talking it looks even more silly. Give it a break.Also, quit the "I have no idea what they were talking about" act. You all but live tweet the show on a daily basis. It's clear you watch.
@crippenstation I appreciate your objectivity. I personally love the show, especially now that the Stephen A is on full time. But regardless, Matt obviously hates Skip and makes a federal case over every little thing that happens on this show. (Again, proving he watches it.) As a side note: I really would love it if Matt actually responded to these comments.
