I've been known to make generalizations about people or places in order to disparage them. This list includes but is not limited to the South, wealthy people, drunk drivers, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, hippies, hobos, religious types, politicians, scientists, non-Marine Corps branches of the military, Ohio, Florida, most European countries, and New Jersey. And they pretty much all deserve it, especially New Jersey. But I'm not irrational in my hatred. I'll give the propers when they're due. And in New Jersey's case, Morristown is quite lovely, and Bruce Springsteen is an American hero.
All of this is a long introduction to the clip above, in which John Buccigross and Neil Everett dropped ten song titles from the Boss — according to Awful Announcing — during the first minute and change of Wednesday night's 11 p.m. SportsCenter. And AA's right: the 11 o'clock SportsCenter, especially when helmed by Buccigross and Everett (or Scott Van Pelt) has quietly not sucked for some time. Could this be a return to the glory days of Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann?
Well, no. But it's a step in the right direction.
