ESPN filling entire screen with stats just to annoy Phil Mushnick
- Updated: September 23, 2007
(Bristol, CT) — Simply to annoy cantankerous New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick, producers for SportsCenter were given the greenlight to fill 68% of the screen with stats, scores and gibberish, an increase of 13% from last year, in an obvious attempt to stick it to the frequent critic of ESPN.
"We can already hear him complaining that the Packers score AND Favre’s stats were flashed on the top and bottom tickers at an inconvenient time," said network spokesman Gabe Mantits. "And that since he saw those stats before highlights of the actual Packer game were finished, the network irresponsibly alluded to the outcome of the game. We know Phil, we know, you weren’t surprised at the end of the highlights because you knew who won already. It’s just so much more fun to enrage you."
When reached for comment, an irate Mushnick, refusing to just turn the channel, was heard yelling incoherently into his speaker-phone while feverishly lining the perimeter of his television with duct tape to hide the various scrolling tickers; thus turning his 42" plasma into a humbling 19" screen.
