I wish that The Sports Reporters would become a daily show and they would cut Around the Horn to a weekend show. I know ratings will prevent that from happening, but this is just a more entertaining show. It is calmer, there is less shouting and frankly, as you saw in Sunday's show, the discussion is better. They were able to look at golf from a different perspective. They also try to stay on on the field incidents instead off off like other shows do, outside of the parting shots, which works better than Around the Horns Face Time as well. Fun show, I still shouldn't have been up at 9:30 though.moreless
