I am guilty of hating Skip Bayless, but isn’t everyone guilty of that? I watch ESPN First Take most afternoons and I can see why some people like to start the morning off with alcohol. Skip Bayless says some of the most absurd things just to get an argument out of someone. He constantly dogs Tiger Woods by saying that he is the best front-runner in sports. He is insinuating that unless he has a lead going into sunday, he can’t win. It’s something that runs parallel with what he states about Lebron. Day after day, Skip stated that Lebron disappears in the 4th quarter. He has quieted his stance quiet a bit after Lebron’s 4th quarter solo-act against the Pistons in last year’s playoffs.
Skip has a West Coast bias, since he covered bay-area sports for most of his professional career. ESPN has so much of an East Coast bias that naturally people are going to dislike Skip. He is so arrogant, I think someone needs to tell him on a regular basis that he is a sports writer from Vanderbilt, not exactly a sports mecca. At least he doesn’t have a Duke crush like Dick Vitale. I’m sure Dicky-V is crying somewhere and counting the days until Midnight Madness.
