Default Keith Olberman Coming Back to ESPN

Dear God, this has potential!

(Hosting around 20 11pm SC's through the end of the year, as well as doing some play by play baseball throughout).

The question is will anybody be watching, and will anyone care?

I loved Keith when he was on SportsCenter. I think if he just sticks to sports he'll be fine. It's really going to be up to ESPN in the end isn't it? I'm sure he'll be doing whatever they want or allow

The guy was terrible then and will be now. There’s no one they can bring in to save their crap. Until they go back to just talking about sports, they will continue to suck.

Why does Espn trigger people so harshly?

Those "this is sportscenter" commercials were awesome. I watch sportscenter every morning before work, I never think wow this is political.

They should bring back those commercials. They need to lighten up like most people on this forum.

The team of Olbermann & Patrick really helped put ESPN on the map in the first place. Besides, I think it'll be good to have a known card collector back on the "inside". Hopefully, he'll do occasional features on that. Could be a boost for the hobby.

I have no reason to dislike Olbermann. Sure he was political on his own show, but that's what he was paid to do. As sports goes, he's pretty entertaining especially during his time with Dan Patrick on Sports Center. The man is a walking, talking baseball encyclopedia. Plus he is a baseball card collector. That makes him alright in my book.

I'll check it out. I was a big fan of the Big Show back in the day, so it will be a nice shot of nostalgia. That said, Olberman will be Olberman, so I don't expect this to be a lengthy assignment.
