Every time you've seen a sports article that mentioned "experts", keep in mind this was probably one of them.

/ similar qualifications apply for stock market and political "experts"
// it'll probably end up with UNC vs.The Zagnuts
/// but I'm no "expert", wtf do I know?

I thought I did pretty bad with 2 of my Final 4 picks eliminated in my Pool this year, Villanova and Iowa State.  I still have my National Championship pick, Gonzaga over North Carolina and can win first or second place in my 50 bracket entry Pool if that turns out to be the result of National Championship game.  Only one bracket in Pool has all 4 picks eliminated.

It says something that "Mad Dog" was the kind, reasoned, intelligent, and entertaining one.  This one is the Hannity of sports, a dimwitted bore with inexplicably persistent failing upwards.

I'll admit to having a certain level of unawareness here, perhaps too much.  Since the only thing I dislike more than New York sports is talk radio, I had little to no awareness of Mike and Mad Dog.  Had to look them up to learn about them.  But, about a year ago, we got the MLB Network in our house.  And there's this guy who is the biggest horse's a$$ ever hosting a show.  This shrill, abrasive, big mouthed, know it all who doesn't let people talk and just screams incessantly.  I love the MLB Network, it's rekindled my love of baseball.  But this guy is such a turd.  I gather when we say "Mad Dog" it means we're talking about Chris Russo.  How could he possibly appeal to anyone?

Mike and Chris invented the genre.  They topped the ratings in NYC for 25 years.

This is quite the little psychology experiment where we find out how little someone from the midwest cares about NYC despite the constant media onslaught.  If I'm correct, I believe you're now expected to call me willfully ignorant and make a "flyover country" remark.

Actually, in reality, I'm not that much of a hayseed - but somehow had missed out on these two.  Kinda glad I did.

I've never been able to stomach listening to him.

But the @SportsFunhouse twitter account has been pretty amusing to follow, always pointing out Francesca's . . . inconsistencies, shall we say?

Few years ago someone did the math on Colin Cowherd's team-by-team predictions for the upcoming NFL season (2012/2013ish?  not that long ago.)  when one did the math on his various "7-9, they're always a 4-12, these guys  have 10 wins, i'm giving them another 8-8, these guys a legit 12 win team, etc.".......he came with predictions for something like 530 games.

there are 512 games, period, in the entire NFL regular season.

Which is why Le Batard  brings on random celebrities to beat Cowherd, now the Alan Thicke Memorial picks. He also mocks Francesa quite a bit these days.

indybill23: e Batard brings on random celebrities to beat Cowherd, now the Alan Thicke Memorial picks. He also mocks Francesa quite a bit these days.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/dc-sports-bog/post/colin-cowherd​-​and-peter-king-weigh-in-on-the-redskins/2011/08/02/gIQApxa9pI_blog.htm​l?utm_term=.df76af35d64d

"Of course, it's worth noting that according to Cowherd's predictions, NFL teams will finish with a combined record of 268-244* this year, which isn't technically possible, or close to possible, meaning this was all apparently a joke that has made me waste 13 seconds of my life, which isn't terribly much of my life, but is enough to make me wish Colin Cowherd be forced to listen to his anti-John Wall rants on an endless loop every night while attempting to sleep. Dude, use a calculator next time. "


I had it wrong.  he didn't pick more than 512 games, he somehow came up with the 268-244 record.  in a 512 win season, assuming no ties (and i doubt he picked any ties), 512 games, one winner, one loser, means you should come out to a 256-256 record (.500 win percentage).  i still don't know he hit 268-244 but....yeah.

Be thankful you weren't involved in the Boston or Philly sports talk scene.  Talk about morons united.
