Did Andrea Kremer Take a Shot at TK?
Andrea Kremer, talking to USA Today about the changing roles for Michele Tafoya and Suzy Kolber on MNF:
"Don't you think some people would be more interested in hearing what they have to say than some other people on that telecast?"
Emphasis added. Tirico's doing the play-by-play and is thus sort of central to the operation. By my count, that leaves two "other people" she might have been talking about. (Although, as UM points out below, perhaps she was referring to the special guests, in which case this whole item is moot, my bad.)
Former MNF producer Fred Gaudelli was less vague:
"If you ranked MNF's five announcers on ability, Kolber and Tafoya would be in the top three....But ESPN has a big bet on Kornheiser."
Wow. Move over Paul Farhi. Luckily there is some more positive coverage available at the Retriever Weekly, the UMBC student paper, which called Kornheiser "the famed ESPN commentator" when it described his Saturday visit to UMBC-Binghamton:
Fans were excited to see Kornheiser, sporting cut-outs of his head and yelling "What do you think now Tony?" during the game. Kornheiser mentioned the Bearcats winning the first meeting between the teams. Though this time the Retrievers came out on top 63-59 and possibly giving Kornheiser another disappointing ride home.
Listening to TK discuss his pre-game speech to the Bearcats on his radio show Monday made for great entertainment, blotting out that possibly disappointing car ride and the fact that he was nailed twice in USA Today today. Link via The Big Lead.
