Nike designed these turquoise jerseys to commemorate Native American Heritage month for the month of November. Some might hate, but we dig ‘em.
Could be photo reproduction causing the color to change, but that doesn’t look like turqoise. That’s Carolina blue. Turqoise has more of a green hue to it than what we see here.
I typically don’t post rants or complaints on here, but I felt this was worth mentioning.
Last night’s ALCS Game 4 between the Tigers and Red Sox ended at approximately 11:30 p.m. on the East Coast, maybe even a bit after that. And while the outcome wasn’t really in doubt after the second inning, many people on the East Coast and in other parts of the country went to sleep not knowing the final outcome.
So what does ESPN Radio’s highly popular morning show, “Mike & Mike,” lead their show with? A show that starts at 6 a.m. on the East Coast, a time when most people who are awake were not able to stay up to see the end or even much of the late baseball game. Surely “Mike & Mike” led with the baseball playoffs, and particularly Game 4 of the ALCS, right? After all, the Tigers evened the series at two, and in the NLCS, the Dodgers avoided elimination in Game 5.
But no, “Mike & Mike” launch right into an in-depth breakdown of the “feud” or “situation” or whatever the heck you want to call it between Peyton Manning and Jim Irsay. And not just a minute or two so the listeners know what may have been said last night. They spent the entire 10-minute opening segment dissecting what’s been said and what it MEANS.
And despite all this analysis of words, they never once identified the “situation” as what it really is — a media-created and media-driven pile of NOTHING. It’s a giant game of “He said/he said” that’s playing out like a bunch of middle school kids talking and not talking about each other, with the media playing the pot-stirring seventh grader who tells each kid what the other is saying.
Meanwhile, great drama continues to play out on the baseball diamond this October. But because ESPN has zero MLB coverage in October, ESPN Radio ignores the important things in the sports world to talk about ESPN’s fall cash cow — the NFL.
Just another example of why it’s increasingly difficult to find worthwhile sports news coverage anywhere.
