Many of us guys hate the putrid
sound of an alarm clock in the morning.
published May 17, 2018:
For me, I have the unfortunate mispleasure of
waking up at 4:30 a.m. and being out of the house
by 5:40. During this time, there's hardly anything
on TV but local morning news. Here in Grand
Rapids, the best source for morning news is
WOOD-TV 8's Daybreak and sadly, even they're
marginally watchable at times.
The show is hosted by a yenta, Teresa Weakly and
the however decent Casey Jones (and I wonder if
that's his real name). But then, there's Terri the
Whor-er, DeBoer who is an old and irritating
weathergirl who needs to retire.
Sadly, after Daybreak is an even worse show, Today
since WOOD has been an NBC affiliate for almost 70
years. Sadly, in recent years, that show has
eroded to being barely watchable. You've got two
yentas hosting the first two hours, and
right-winged cunt hosting the 9 a.m. hour and
don't even get me started on Kathie Lee and Hoda.
For decades, it's been a misconception that only
women watch daytime TV. Station programmers are
stuck in the 1960s, thinking that women stay home
while their husbands work. Hell, I tried living
that life once and in this day and age, it doesn't
work from a financial standpoint. Of course, it
was one huge reason why I kicked her ass out of my
house. But, let's face it: there's guys who work
second or third shift and they don't want to wake
up to five old bitches sitting around a desk like
hens in a hen house.
So, why in the fuck is ESPN alienating their
viewers for yet another unneeded show for yentas?
Yep, I said it correctly. ESPN now airs a show in
the morning that nobody seems to like. It's called
Get Up and it's hosted by Jalen Rose, Michelle
Beadle and former Mike and Mike co-host Mike
Greenberg. Sadly, this is the reason why Mike and
Mike split up: it's so Greenberg can do a TV show
while the other Mike, Golic stayed with ESPN Radio
with Trey Wingo. Anyway, the show's ratings are
beyond horrid and critics are trashing the show
left and right, comparing it to the other morning
Not long ago, I had a discussion with an owner of
an ESPN radio station and he told me that with the
bullshit going down in Bristol, he might be
dumping it. He's unhappy with the constant
schedule changes, plus the fact that it's
expensive to carry. Hell, I don't think there's a
single station in Detroit that carries ESPN Radio
anymore. Tragically, the TV side's getting to be
not much different.
Look, guys have long looked to ESPN as an
alternative to the chick shit that dominates cable
and regular TV. During the daytime, there's hardly
any good shows us guys can enjoy outside of game
shows like The Price is Right and Jerry Springer.
I don't want Rachael Ray making me a sloppy joe, I
don't want to see Tinker Bell Ryan Seacrest and
Kelly Ripa bragging about some shitty reality show
and I sure as hell don't want Ellen DeGeneres
doing ditto. Even more, I don't want the same shit
on ESPN. Whomever thought up this abortion should
have been fired. (Oh, wait, he's already gone (and
I apologize for using Fox News as a source.)
But there is a silver lining in all this: Get Up
is at least a better sports show than a certain
weekday radio show here in Grand Rapids that airs
from 3-6 p.m. on a certain station whose frequency
is between 107.2 and 107.4.
