    Espys and Rob Riggle

    We had no chance of out voting LA for that award, no matter how insignificant hockey is in LA. But, still a disappointment.

    I was wondering what all of you thought about Rob Riggle's performance as MC, other than his Kansas schtick of course, which was predictable if you know anything about him I thought he did a great job.

    Of course the Jayhawks may be in for a rude awakening a la TCU coming up here soon, with the arrest of drug dealers associated with the BB team.

    Re: Espys and Rob Riggle

    I think he did pretty well. Some jokes landed and were hilarious. Others were awkward. He was fun, a little edgy, but didn't embarrass himself. I wish he woulda mixed in a "IN THE FACE!!!"

    I want some of whatever you are smoking. I watched about 45 minutes of that show and that was about the most painful 45 minutes of television I have ever witnessed.
    Whoever made the decision to hire him should have come out on stage and committed Hara kiri in order to save face.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Espys and Rob Riggle

    I think he was alright. He sometimes subscribes to the Sinbad philosophy of the louder I say things the funnier they are. The ESPY's aren't a premier awards show so the hosts won't be amazing but he hasn't been the worst.

    Re: Espys and Rob Riggle

    I think he did ok. Some parts were really funny. Hosting is hard and almost nobody ever thinks the host did a good job. People will look back in a few years and remember the funny parts if they look back at all.

    I don't know. The majority approved of Billy Crystal's hosting of the Oscars, especially the first couple of years.
