These Guys Have all the Fun Indeed

So there's much buzz about this new book on ESPN. And as this exerpt proves, The greatness that is Keith Olbermann's Ego was living large and in charge back in the day (BTW this exerpt should also prove to some of the fanboyz and girlz out there that the Ego doesn't just quote Shakespeare but also has a working vocabulary that most certainly incorporates quite a few four-letter words). But if you really want to know where and how the Ego got his smooth moves with the ladies you have to look at the book's outtakes. First there is the epic story of The Ego's old high school buddy Chris Berman.

And this charming little anecdote reveals the true meaning of Play Ball!

Good to see the traditions still continue to this very day at ESPN too.

Sure GQ has a warning that these aren't true but come on you know their lawyers just made them say that right?

According to Deadspin, they cut out over 400 pages including sections on someone at ESPN hiring hookers and then engaging them in oral sex in front of coworkers. So now we know where KO gets his "class" from where women are concerned.

I have read 260 pages so far and it is a very interesting read..I remember the network starting up in 79 and the big joke was they were going to have to show footage of a father and son in the backyard playing catch. There was no possible way they could have enough programming to be an all exclusive sports channel. Credit everyone over there for the world dominance the channel holds!!
