Goodbye, Sean Salisbury

Coach put me in we would have won state. I just know it!

"...Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."

Or so must be saying the bully's perrenial whipping boy, ProfessorJohn Clayton.With news of Salisbury's departure from the four-letter network, onemust wonder where he goes from there.

Sporting News Radio? Guestspot on Screamin' A's blog? Best Damn Sports Show? A Comcast regional?

Wherever it is, it will be interesting to see whether Sean and Lil' Sean land on their feet. Truth is, can he get away from his only known usefulness and schtick?

That being, picking on the Professor. Howfunny would it be if, say, he did a guest spot with Olberman (he stillhas a show, right?) and all he can do is poke fun at an irrelevant andabsent Clayton?

Frankly, I don't think the one trick pony can adapt to life afterESPN. What do ex-mediocre-to-lousy athletes turn to when not playingand strong-arming bookish pencil pushers?

Reality TV? "Celebrity" poker? Hocking used cars?

How about selling camera phones at a mall kiosk?
