Cool Pardon the InterruPTIon...

Who watches this show on ESPN? It airs weeknights at 5:30 PM EST and I occasionally catch it as I prepare for church (err... SportsCenter) to begin.

Basically, it's a two-way argument between two guys who admittingly call themselve old and bald, Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon. If you've ever seen the show, you'll know what I mean, but I like how it's organized with the little menu on the right showing what they're going to talk about. They have 1:30 to talk about each current sports issue and they always seem to make an argument out of it. It's just entertaining to watch them pick on each other, back and forth.

We've been discussing Jim Rome in another thread, have we any PTI fans here?

I like this show...you get to hear two opinions from people who usually know what they're talking about...and I especially like the menu at the side and when they play the games.

Well, you've got to have two bold, opinionated guys or it doesn't work. They play that description well.

I don't get ESPN but I'm sure it would be something to watch.

I watch it as much as possible. It is the best sports "talk" show on the market today. Kornheiser and Wilbon are great, Kornheiser is funnier than Wilbon though, but Wilbon is still great. They aren't afraid to voice their opinions, I like that. Great show, I hope it stays on for a while.

I really like the show, not able to catch it every day, but it's still the only talk show I watch. It's different from the talk shows too, that helps.

I also like it. I like the way it is organized and Wolbon and Kornheiser have great chemistry.

Anybody seen Mohr Sports on ESPN? I haven't, it seems like the premise is lame and would be horrible programming to me. Although I do like the commercials.

I've never seen this show. I usually forget it is on and just flip on the TV for Sports Center.
