I want you to do a little test. Every day for a week, between 10-12 or 12-2, throw on ESPN2. Watch for 30 seconds. As long as the actual show is on and not a commercial, I will guarantee that within those 30 seconds, Skip Bayless will be yelling about something.
Skip calls himself a sports "truth teller." Most people call him "full of crap."
Skip claims all his opinions are 100% authentic, but have you noticed that almost all of them are against the norm?
From his unwavering support of Tim Tebow to his 2012 NFL MVP pick (Brady over Rodgers and Brees), Skip's views that he claims to believe in 100% always seem to be completely unconventional.
Funny how that works out, isn't it?
The website Deadspin did a story on this, essentially coming to the conclusion that Skip is a "hockey goon" whose sole goal is to "start a fight with someone."
Skip's low point came when he speculated that former Cowboys QB Troy Aikman is gay. Aikman, as you can probably imagine, was a little perturbed. Bayless, however, "laughed all the way to the bank."
Everyone who has ever watched First Take has wanted to punch Skip Bayless at one time or another. The sad thing about him is, he knows this. He knows people like me publish articles saying they want to punch him. In Skip's eyes, this means he's getting publicity, which is all he wants.
Man, I hate that guy.
