THE PESSIMIST: Watch The Damn GameNovember 1st, 2008
Nothing worse than a media guy who claims to be an expert but doesn’t do his homework.
Pat Yasinskas, ESPN.com’s guru of the NFC South, revealed his half-ass work habits in an interview Friday with the Fabulous Sports Babe on ESPN 1010 AM. The Babe brought in Yasinskas to talk about the Bucs and all things NFC and NFC South.
Well, Yasinskas told the Babe he hadn’t watched the Bucs-Dallas game, only highlights.
His reason? Yasinskas said he was in London for the Saints-Chargers game and didn’t get a chance. Yet he said he didn’t stay in England after the game to sightsee.
Ever hear of a VCR, Pat? How bout a DVR? How about calling your friends at ESPN to get you a tape? Or your pals at Bucs headquarters?
You cover the NFC South. That’s your whole job. Watch the damn games before you waste every Bucs fan’s time with a radio interview.
