Default No More Emmit to kick around

ESPN says goodbye to Emmit Smith.

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...tt-exits-espn/

Quote:
Well, we’ll no longer have Emmitt Smith to kick around.

After a two-season run featuring multiple new on-air additions to the English language, the greatest running back in NFL history ultimately has fared no better than Joe Montana as a broadcaster.

Yes, ESPN has advised us that Emmitt’s relationship with the network has ended.

There will be no formal announcement — and presumably no going away party. Or vodka-fueled roast.

“We thank Emmitt for his contributions to ESPN and work ethic the past two years,” ESPN spokesman Bill Hofheimer told us via e-mail. “We wish him all the best.”

So we bid a bittersweet farewell to a guy who made this job a lot more entertaining. Intentionally or otherwise.

Emmit has something else in common with Joe Montana IMO. Each is overrated at their respective positions.

I agree. He was fun to watch and I hate that his broadcasting career got blowed up.
