Erin Andrews Wants To Dance

Things have been relatively quiet on the Erin Andrews' front for a couple of weeks, but that's about to change. She's covering the Spelling Bee that airs on ABC tonight.

If you don't believe me, just check out this awesome clip from yesterday's Mike Francesa show on WFAN/YES. You MUST stick with it for a bit because Francesa ERUPTS at the 1:50 mark before going into his trademark handwave.
Pot, Meet Kettle

Let's see if I can explain this story properly. Red Wings fan flips a double bird at the refs during last night's game. CBC sportscaster gets all hot and bothered about the fan's gesture. Sportscaster then calls fan a "putz" on the air.

Someone Finally Speaks The Truth

"I think he has been a great flamboyant quarterback, but he has made more stupid plays than any great quarterback that I've ever seen. Look at his final game in a Packers uniform. He blew that game against the Giants." That's Fran Tarkenton, with just one of many rips on Brett Favre.
