My roommate listens to First Take every day. I don't get it. I tell him it's stupid, that hour he listens to the show just makes him dumber. What you get from that show reminds me of the line by the principal during the debate in Billy Madison:
"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
So yeah, I've seen the Sherman clip. I've heard that Skip tweeted that the Seahawks were in the AFC. I know he's a big Niners homer (along with Tebow).
But today I heard Skip pick the Panthers over the Seahawks. And I smiled. To be fair, he did mention some salient points like injuries to the Seahawks D-line and the strength of the Panther's front 7. But he said his tipping point was the fact that Cam Newton was just named a team captain.
I dunno, personally, I just feel more confident when Bayless is picking against you. So I thought I'd try to keep a tally going throughout the season.
|Skip Bayless||Pete Prisco||DCHawk82||Result|
Edit: I added Pete Prisco...I swear, no columnist hates the Seahawks more than him.
