If the Redskins fail to rally this season, all that we’ll have left to do is speculate on Mike Shanahan’s future and listen to sports-radio hosts cannibalize each other.
The latter has already started. Danny Rouhier, a mid-day host at 106.7 The Fan, issued his second fake Redskins Radio Network broadcast, again taking primary aim at Larry Michael. But this time, he threw in a mocking aside about Kevin Sheehan, who, coincidentally, is a mid-day host at ESPN 980. Actually (checking schedules), it turns out that Sheehan’s program runs at the very same time as Rouhier’s, on a rival station! Weird!
Oh, and speaking of D.C. sports radio, Talkers.com issued its annual ranking of the top 100 sports-radio programs. Here’s where the locals finished.
No. 31: The Tony Kornheiser Show
No. 45: The Junkies
No. 61: The Sports Fix, with Loverro and Sheehan
No. 77: LaVar and Dukes
No. 96: The Drive, with Cooley and Czabe
The fact that Colin Cowherd finished above all of these programs makes me believe the list is actually ranked from worst to best.
