CSN takes over Gallery Place Metro station

By Dan Steinberg


If you've been to the Gallery Place Metro stop lately, you'll have seen a slight Comcast SportsNet presence. The station -- which has a business relationship with The Washington Post in the form of a television show that never utilizes my talents -- has launched a two-month marketing campaign, "Where Local Means More," to promote its news shows and team coverage.

There are more than 140 signs, banners and graphics inside the station, featuring John Wall, Chris Cooley, Alex Ovechkin, Chick Hernandez and Julie Donaldson. No word whether Ivan Carter is jealous.

Punk if you had any talent Comcast would come calling. If a no talent fool like Cowherd can get a radio and Tv show on EPSN what is your excuse.

Maybe you can substitute on Sportnation and get to interact with that hottie Michelle. Why doesn't the WP employe reporters like her instead of reporters like Tracee?

Hey look at that, the guy who can't spell ranks reporters by hotness.

To be fair, Stein's post has a typo too:
>>>There are mroe than 140 signs

:) I don't mind Metro ads as much as the obnoxious "virtual" ads on the hockey ring glass that you see during Comcast broadcasts now. They've already got print ads all over the boards (you don't notice how many unless you see highlights of mid 1980s Caps games with no ads on the boards at all).

Dan, as much as we love the Bog, you got the perfect voice for a newspaper.

I'd assume Jon Forsythe (host of Football Insider Live) will be the next WaPo employee on Comcast SportsNet.

It would at least improve the awkwardness level. I swear, I've never seen a more awkward group of people on TV together than on WaPo Live. Everyone is trying to laugh and have a personality....only no one is funny...and no one has a personality.

I stopped watching WaPo Live when they moved Russ Thaler off the show, but I did notice they have cut back the new host from an hour to 30 minutes. Wise decision by Comcast SportsNet...the show hasn't been relevant since Thaler left.
