I usually find Keith Olbermann to be an obnoxious blowhard but every now and again he says something that I agree with. Last week he took issue with the New York Times calling soccer a trend in America. Deadspin picks apart the article too. The article is in the fashion section and should have focused on fashion a little more – not the game itself. Regardless, KO is on point here.
Keith Olbermann on soccer: “If you couldn’t drink or gamble there would be more people on the field than in the stands”.
Keith Olbermann was entertaining to me when he was on ESPNSportscenter. I didn’t watch Countdown on MSNBC because I tend to stay away from politics on TV. I don’t care about his politics, but he was fun with sports. I watch brainless TV and sports and I’m happy with that.
Anyway, Olbermann got the boot from MSNBC and is now on Current TV and he’s still doing the “Worst Person In The World” sketch. Last night Steve Wynn won the “Worst Person In The World” for comments he made about Barack Obama earlier this week. Evidently this made him a worse person than Sarah Palin and Congressman Alan West.
Take a look.
When I started writing this post I asked who was more obnoxious Steve Wynn or Keith Olbermann and Olbermann won in a landslide. The comment that I echo is from Denver Gambler ” Olberman for sure, he doesn’t have a snazzy casino”.
Now this brings up a new question: Would you rather be the “Worst” or “Most Obnoxious”?
