Rachel Nichols ESPN

Commuting in California has converted me to a sports radio guy. ESPN is always good: Mike and Mike, then Colin Cowherd. The sports station is truly loaded with talent. And one of the more annoying sportscasters, Rachel Nichols, is leaving to go to CNN. Preachy Rachel, if you are not aware, is related to the director, Mike Nichols. Yes, of The Graduate and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? fame.

Tim’s Broncos Win It

On my morning commute, I listen to talk radio or work on language vocab. (!مفردات اللغة العربية هي متعة)

For sports, often it’s Mike and Mike. The Big Mike, Mike Golic, could be annoying, but the show is good.

Or if I am running late, ESPN has Colin Cowherd. Great guy, annoying voice. He stresses self-reliance on his show. And he makes fun of the Occupy Wall Street folks. Which wins points in my book.

The thing with Colin, though, is that he does not like Tim Tebow. He thinks Tim can’t win the big games:

Listen, you fell in love with Tebow, and I said get out of the emotion game, get into the common-sense game. You can’t throw like that and win big games in the NFL.

Oh well, Colin’s gonna be eating some crow. Tim pulled it out, again:

One of the most storied NFL playoff teams ran into a rejuvenated Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.

Sorry, Pittsburgh Steelers.

The magic is back.

Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas on an electrifying 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime and the Broncos defeated the stunned Steelers 29-23 in the AFC wild-card game on Sunday.

I guess I am looking forward to what Colin’s got to say about it. Don’t forget your Tebowing tonight!
