1st and 10
1st and 10 is a TV show. TV is video and all they give us is audio?
Skip's facial expressions and body language are priceless.
I can't see that with my ears !
Stephen A Smith + Skip Bayless == best first and ten ever hands down
I don't understand why this is getting good ratings. This is low grade sports banter riddled with ESPN's trademark over-production. Remember that the Skip Bayless you see on TV is nothing more than a character who ALWAYS has the alternate "unpopular" viewpoint. You see the same keep-it-simple-stupid characterizations of their personalities on Mike & Mike and the unbearable Colin Cowherd. You won't find intelligent sports talk anywhere near Bristol.
