Five Least Surprising Things I Learned While Reading The ESPN Oral History

1.) Keith Olbermann, Bill Simmons, Chris Berman, and Joe Theismann are egotistical assholes who are talented but a pain-in-the-ass to deal with (except for Theismann, who isn’t talented).

2.) Ex-jocks and ex-jock-wannabes are sexually harrassment machines.

3.) The guys who come up with the idea and get the ball rolling are quickly forced out by corporations that make all the real money.

4.) ESPN is more interested in keeping good relationships with the sports leagues they carry than anything else.

5.) 784 pages is a fucking long time to read about a cable television network.
