Colin Cowherd, a
prominent, smart, objective, coherent, warm body in a chair radio host that has polluted our airwaves with nonsensical, borderline racist, sports related jibberish since 2003 is finally leaving ESPN. The departure seems to be in good terms on both sides, although I can’t imagine ANYONE with any sense in their head will actually miss him at the Mothership.
I know I won’t miss accidentally hearing his mouth-breathing, out of touch rants while radio surfing during my morning drive.
“We’ve enjoyed a mutually beneficial run with Colin for over a decade,” ESPN president John Skipper said in a released statement. “He came to national prominence on ESPN with his unique perspective on sports and society. Endings also bring new beginnings, for ESPN and Colin, and we thank him and wish him the best.”
As I’ve written before (click here), Cowherd inexplicably remained at ESPN for waaaaaay too long bellowing out incoherent sports ramblings, like a racist old man trying to return soup at a deli.
He picked fights with every good sports radio personality in the biz, including a man who’s on the Mount Rushmore of talking heads: Dan Patrick.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Cowherd’s idiocracy, I’ve linked more Cowherd write-ups below if you care to continue reading. For now, let’s all rejoice in the fact that ESPN is improving themselves by moving on from the Cowherd years.

Ronda Rousey won an ESPY for Best Fighter over several candidates, one of which was Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Rousey is easily the most dominant women’s fighter in MMA or any other form of martial arts (hair-pulling and bitch-you-don’t-know-me-kung fu), but who knew that she would take to the offensive AFTER winning the ESPY for biggest badass.
The nervous laughs from Jesse Palmer after Rousey’s comments indicate that he was too scared, anxious and slightly turned on yet STILL frightened to even attempt to get a follow-up question out of his spray-tanned face-hole.
If I was Rousey, I would’ve followed with this, “and while we’re on the subject of dumb shit, why am I being presented with this award on the red carpet as I’m walking into the award show? Why am I NOT on stage receiving this award like a regular human being?!?!”.
Seriously, am I the only person who’s wondering why she got this award on the curb, OUTSIDE the building?
Maybe the Academy Awards will adopt this dynamic for the awards that the average film fan doesn’t care much about.
Just start handing out best dramatic short/best sound editing Oscars on the red carpet and give the viewers a break on the acceptance speeches from people no one knows. “Thanks for coming, you can get right back in your limo and go to the after-party.”
