Why This Inordinate Publicity Regarding Craig Sager?!

December 20, 2016

Sure I gushed and am touched by Cindy Stowell and in essence her fame is being on the show “Jeopardy.”

Conversely, Craig Sager, who also recently passed away, never meant much to me. In my not so humble opinion, he was in an innocuous, yet often annoying position of interviewing coaches, asking inane, meaningless questions, no different than any sideline reporter, including the suddenly renowned Doris Burke.

Far from like him politically, I wholeheartedly agree with the late Andy Rooney, that there is no need for “sideline reporters.”

So whether partly due to my general dislike and face it, envy of broadcasters or maybe the fact I honestly do not recall his doing anything of substance in broadcasting, the load of publicity given Mr. Sager’s life and death is truly disproportionate, in my opinion, to what he achieved.

I bet he would agree. If you the public or Mr. Sager are offended, know I fervently wish Mr. Sager had lived longer and was here to tell me so.

Would not that be nice?!! However, life with its impending death and largely who, not what you know reality, is a” bi–h,” not a “Beach Boys” song.



Dr. Jonas Salk fought polio.

When vastly over rated, college football coach, Bo Schembechler died, Beano Cook told me first of all, he was not a great coach as he lost too many big games.

Next Beano “pulled no punches” in saying, “the only person who dies and gets negative publicity is Hitler.”

In my opinion, that is pretty close to true, especially in the sports world.

I always thought of and still think of sportscaster, Len Berman as a “no talent.”

However, I credit him for criticizing Schembechler’s rival but also mentor, Woody Hayes, as bad, at the time of his death.

For the record, all of the above accomplished something, I sit here and criticize. There has to be a better way to express/live.
