The Next Great Master Debaters

Watching First Take this morning and caught an interview segment with future Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson.

First off, WOW. How that man orders a sandwich, calls information or gets through a day is beyond my thought process. But it got me to thinking about the untapped potential of a television and English train wreck that is Rickey. It was reminiscent of a former TV analyst and football Hall of Famer, Emmitt Smith.

Now that Emmitt is unemployed and Rickey is officially, officially retired (Hear that Rickey? RETIRED. Once you are enshrined, you are DONE) I think they would make the perfect hosts for.....

PTI (Pardon the Inter-matriculation)

Imagine the new words/phrases, uncomfortable smiles, panic induced laughing fits and sheer confusion on their faces as they stumble through just ONE topic.

Of course, the debate section would only last five minutes and the other twenty-five minutes would be dedicated to asking "Stat Boy" Steve Young "Stevie, what did we not get done so good?"

Good night Cananada!

Now that you mention it, they should give Rickey a special cameo on PTI. It would be an instant YouTube smash hit.
