Stephen A. Smith
It doesn’t take much to rile up Stephen A. Smith nowadays, or any days, but the Super Bowl blackout had him fuming. Now I’m sure many of us, especially Ravens fans, felt that Baltimore was jipped out of some valuable momentum after starting the second half with a rollicking kick-return touchdown courtesy of Jacoby Jones.
We wouldn’t kid about these things because we care about you. Apparently five days of ESPN’s First Take just isn’t quite enough, so the show will be expanding to six days a week with the inclusion of Saturdays (8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.). Rob Parker will be the primary debater, with Cari Champion hosting and a slew of to-be-named-later co-hosts yapping their holier-than-thou heads off.
Stephen A. Smith was on ESPN’s First Take this morning, as always, and was ranting about Kobe Bryant being ready for the opening game of the season. His disgust was in prime form, however, because we think he may have let the N-word slip out of his mouth with a “n— please.” We’ll let you decide for yourselves.
Jay Pharoah’s Stephen A. Smith impression got a bunch of attention went he debuted it back in May, and this past weekend, he brought it back to the Weekend Update desk. Did you know that Stephen A. Smith is a close personal friend of Rex Ryan’s? Neither did we. Video, after the jump.
Here’a clip of ESPN’s First Take that aired yesterday, in which Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless were set to “discuss” (read: scream like morons) Tim Tebow’s latest GQ Magazine cover, in which he’s posing like a crucified Jesus. It appears Skip is about to launch into one of his impassioned and impervious rants when the television feed abruptly cuts to commercial. (Go to :58)
Frank Caliendo might do a better Stephen A. Smith than Stephen A. Smith himself. Check out the comedian’s impersonation from yesterday’s First Take. [h/t Bro Bible]
The Miami Heat are YOUR 2012 NBA Champions! Now commemorate the team’s win with this collectible DJ Porter remix of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless arguing about stuff. (Seriously, these are well done, but this will be the last one we post featuring either Skip or Stephen A., purely out of principle. Go back to doing these for SportsCenter, Steve!)
Jay Pharoah, the SNL comedian who impersonated Stephen A. Smith a few weeks ago, appeared with SAS on ESPN’s First Take today. In addition to doing some impressions, he also found time to throw Boston Celtic Paul Pierce completely under the bus.
The “Weekend Update” segment on SNL took time to address the Heat being down 2-1 in their series with the Pacers last night. “Stephen A. Smith” revealed what the Heat must do to take back the series. He does know what he’s talking about — after all, he has very intimate relationships with the Heat roster. See what I mean, after the jump.
