Tony Knows Who Ludacris Is!

Tony Kornheiser

This Cirque du Soleil stuff, while it's wonderful when you pay money to see it in an arena, is idiotic here. This kind of theatrical nonsense is what is so laughable about the opening ceremonies at the Olympics. All these freaks dressed up as refs, all these flamingo outfits, all these idiots competing for airtime. They shouldn't be on TV. I would prefer to see almost anything from "American Idol" over this. This is ludicrous. And I don't mean Ludacris, whom I like. Play the game already. I'd rather watch Peyton Manning do the tango than this. I'd rather watch Archie Manning do the tango. But I draw the line at Eli. I want to see Eli win a game by having a good first half for a change.

Glad I am watching the end of the golf match. Which if I was the sort that would bet on things, I would guess Mr.Tony is monitoring that also. but I don't bet so I am probably wrong(tee hee)

That was a pretty doggone good opening piece, with the moms and family members. I am fired up, and I'm not even related to any of the participants in the game.

Hmmm, how much better would this game be if CBS brought over Nick Faldo from the golf coverage. 3 man booths are ratings gold, Jerry.

Don't you just wish that someone (especially Jim Nance) would say, "Okay, you've all heard all of the stories and the analysis over the last two weeks. We're not going to talk again until the game starts. Watch what everyone in the stadium is watching, and don't forget this year's new commercials!" ?
