SportsNotReallyCenter

I just noticed this Slate column that captures why SportsCenter is often replaced by The Blank Screen Show around my house. Excerpts:

In contrast, the current roster of Dan-and-Keith wannabes offers all the critical distance, and all the journalistic detachment, of a Gatorade commercial.
[...]
Pro basketball offers a telling test case in the decline of SportsCenter because it is at once the most heavily hyped and the most decrepit major sport.

True, so true. HT to WSJ's Daily Fix (non-permalink).
