Listening to Colin Cowherd’s ESPN radio show reminds us of our college dorm days. Remember drinking too much Lowenbrau, too early, then hooking up with the girl who lives on the floor below you?
15 minutes and you can’t finish.

We’ve tried over the years to give the show a chance, but we just can’t get past the unceasing arrogance. It’s one thing to have a strong opinion, it’s another to dismiss anyone not named Sean Salisbury in 1.4 seconds if they don’t agree with you. There’s no interchange with callers.
We understand that calls don’t make a radio show. In fact, the less the better. But we focused on that part of Cowherd’s show in this post so we don’t have to get into his monologues, which unintentionally scream mid-life crisis every, single day.
Dan Steinberg of DC SPORTS BOG braves all that to
have Cowherd pontificate to him interview Mr. Grocery Store Salad Bar (see, we do listen) on Super Bowl radio row.
Steinberg reports Cowherd said, “We’re a blog on radio, we see blogs as our allies. ” He added to Steinberg that “he sends traffic to blogs (that is true, just ask THE BIG LEAD).”
He even told Steinberg that “he’s thinking about starting a blog of his own.”
Cowherd’s comments remind us of some of the current Presidential candidates, who have flip-flopped more than Mr. Eva Longoria.
Anyone who has listened to Cowherd’s show more than five minutes knows his unmitigated disdain for blogs. But now he sees the onrushing tidal wave - and that the water is finally creeping under ESPN’s door.
Sorry Schrutebag, it’s too late.
