GameOn found the latest–and almost certainly last–annual piece from the Stephen A. Smith Heckling Society Of Gentlemen. One can expect this video to hold up as the SASHSG swan song, as Smith’s contract was not renewed by ESPN. The video features an unflattering sock puppet in almost a sort of “Triumph the insult comic dog” vein; we see “Stephen A.” renegotiate his contract on an iPhone, try to score an interview with the draft picks, and capping it off with an ode to cheese doodles.
But really this post is just an excuse for me to point out that the reason Stephen A. Smith thinks his contract isn’t being renewed–because the black community didn’t lend him enough support. Oh, I didn’t realize Stephen A’s show was broadcasting live from a Birmingham lunch counter in 1958. And that’s just a callous way of asking, “Why would they?”
