BSPN Lets Go Shaun King (But Not For That)

October 30th, 2009

Joe is sad to learn that former Bucs quarterback Shaun King, one of only three men to lead the Bucs to an NFC championship game as the starting signal-caller, was recently let go by BSPN.

But not for that reason.

Usually when BSPN lets go of an on-air personality, it’s for some sexual dalliance, whether it be (allegedly) sexting or getting to know a co-worker in the Biblical sense.

That is not the case with King.

Joe is sad to learn this. Joe enjoyed listening, the few times he watched King on BSPN (because, other than college football or basketball games, Joe avoids the four-letter like the plague). King was insightful, intelligent, and a likable personality.

Joe got to briefly know King when he was the highly successful offensive coordinator at Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg just after his NFL playing days. Joe had also interviewed King a time or two when he was the Bucs quarterback.

Here’s to hoping King lands on his feet for a superior operation like, say, the NFL Network.

And if you happen to be cheating yourself by not having the NFL Network, Joe kindly asks, “What’s the matter with you?”

Be a man. Get the NFL Network!
