Sweaty Men Endeavors

The sports blog with the slightly gay name

Hey! Aren't you the guy who... ?

How are you feeling this week if you're Mike Tirico? Not that he's having as bad a week as Harold Reynolds, but in almost every story, several blogs, and a few message board postings I've read concerning Reynolds' dismissal from ESPN, Tirico's name is frequently mentioned.

Why? According to the book, ESPN: An Unauthorized Biography, Tirico found himself in the same sexual harassment hot water at the network that just prompted management to kick Reynolds out of the hot tub.

So much for that story going away and being forgotten, eh? You think Reynolds is getting any phone calls from Tirico right now?

"Hey, H.R. - yeah, THANKS pal! The wife reads Deadspin every day. No, giving me one of your 12-button, pinstriped suits will not placate me. I'm mad at you, man.

Okay, I gotta go. Kornheiser's on the other line. Probably gonna ask if we can carpool to the Monday night games. If he makes any jokes about Kolber or Tafoya, I will slap the taste out of his mouth."

Nice timing, too, with two nice recent local profiles of Tirico in the Ann Arbor News and Ann Arbor Observer. Ah, what are you gonna do, right?
