    2.0
    Its amazing that in 2014 a azzzz all star game zzzzz (basketball) is the lead story.

    u guys metion 10 different basketball players for the story.

    and when u go to the story that matters (olimpic hockey) u mention 2 players .

    then after making the woman's hockey team a after thought ,

    u go to this twittermentality and speak about some prima donnas thoughts and did u like Pharrel's

    watever.

    i always looked forward to u guys at the end of the day especially a day wear i tune in and see this mindless banter about morals in sports by frick and frak on "take lude".

    come on guys don't looze your smarts to the facebook dicks.

    I love watching your show everyday. I agree with the both of you most of the time accept this time concerning Lebron James. The two fouls on him against the Chicago Bulls were not basketball plays. If they were then I, as a coach of elementary, middle, and high school freshman players will start teaching them to foul like this because it is allowed.. Were we watching the same game? Lebron could have been hurt with the Gibson foul. His legs bent backwards. What would have happened then? I am tired of hearing that a player should not complain when they speak up for themselves because they are so big and strong. If a player wants to defend against these guys, then go to the gym and work out or play better defense Lastly , if the fouls against Lebron weren't flagrant then don't call one on Lebron against Boozer. After all he's big and strong and should be able to take it. If those fouls had happened against other superstars of the past, they would have been given consequences. I have lost my faith in the NBA game because it no longer exhibits the game as it has been taught to youngsters as it was meant to be played.moreless

    How dare you threaten a quarterbacks legs! Tony you are pathetic and you don't deserve to be a sports announcer on or off tv. You definetly need to make a formal apology to russell wilson and ten you should have to step down
  • Entertaining show discussing the latest sports headlines.

    7.5
    Pardon the Interruption is an enjoyable-enough show on ESPN usually featuring the duo of Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon. They try to bring creativity to how they discuss the latest sports news, including time limits and games like "Over/Under" and "Report Card" featuring Around the Horn host, Tony Reali. The other Tony, as in Kornheiser, is my favorite of the cast. I agree with most things he says and he is a funny guy. Wilbon on the other hand, grinds my gears. He acts like he knows everything when he obviously doesn't and he can be seriously annoying. I'm sure Kornheiser has wanted to punch him in the face two or three times every now and then. However, this is probably the show I watch the most after school in the afternoon, and I look forward to keep doing so.moreless
