Cannot stand ESPN. I have revolted against it for years. SVP (and Russillo) has been one of my only saving graces to tune in to anything ESPN outside of live games...Started letting the TV roll after MNF a few weeks ago and I think this one is a winner...for now, at least, until the mother ship ruins this too. I thought I saw comments that it was whack, but I don't think so at all. He whips around and covers what you need to know and see and it's just go go go. Love it! Bad beats, the highlights, the guests, SVP's vault. You damn right this is thread worthy.
