ESPN surprisingly kills awful show


Bristol, Connecticut gave us its finest news in weeks yesterday announcing cancellation of the unmitigated disaster known as Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith. This is an actual quote from Chris LaPlaca, ESPN’s senior VP of communications:

"The end result of this is that he (Smith) is going nowhere."

Oh, what sweeeeet irony.

Let’s hope Around the Horn, Cold Pizza, and the rest of their shitty shows aren’t far behind. Quite frankly, most of their programming sucks.

With the demise of Stephen A. Ludicrus, several unique industries took direct hits upon news of the show’s cancellation:

  • Earplugs market shifts back to landing instructors and jackhammer operators
  • Bose "Noise Canceling" headphones seeing instant sales dive of 46%
  • Soundproof room rentals no longer sweeping the nation
  • ESPN now only receiving 143 angry phone calls an hour

    he’s the only Philly sports writer that has never answered any of my mails. Not that I wrote him many times, and not that I give more than a damn about that, but still it shows how he’s full of himself (=shlt). all the others journalists ALWAYS replied and we discussed bball nicely, while with Screming A. Smith it wasn’t possible

    I guess he will have more time to answer to mails now

    I’ve had the same experience with him. The guy is simply a douche. The same douche that said the Chargers, after a playoff loss to the Jets a couple years ago, should have attempted a field goal on third down instead of fourth down so they could’ve have kicked again if they had missed it. The jerk-off doesn’t even understand the rules.
