I'm not the first one to touch on this topic and I certainly will not be the last, but it's high time to comment on ESPN's yearly "My Wish" week. Before I do, I'll need to put up a disclaimer, as I've already been called out on my egregious use of the term "retard" once this week.
Linda Cohn. I may be alone here, but I've had a crush on Linda Cohn since I began watching SC in 1993. Ten years from now, I'd still throw it to her (definately alone there, I'm sure). But her sultry alto and perfect diction lend themselves well to stories like this. And, if anything, the more Linda, the less I'll dog everything ESPN produces on this blog. That's a guarantee (and that is Linda Cohn up there, right? That's what it said on AskJeeves, anyway).
Suzy Kolber. If there's anyone at ESPN that has had to deal with retards (there I go again) and special cases, it's Suzy Kolber. Not only does she have to sideline report for the handsy Mike Tirico and formerly Joe Theeeeesman, but she was also the reporter during the Joe Namath Incident, a happening so big that they named a blog after it.
