Earlier this week there were Internet reports that surfaced that suggested that Toronto-area sportswriter, the renowned steroid sports media expert and totally impartial observer Damien Cox was going to join TSN full-time.
But now that doesn't look like it's going to happen. Instead, Sportsnet "wrestled" Cox away from TSN meaning that Cox will join the lineup and become the lone voice of reason in the chaotic, chaotic mess that is Sportsnet.
That's completely not true. Cox joining Sportsnet reminds me of the revelation that Bridget Von Hammersmark gave to Aldo Raines in Inglorious Basterds, when it turned out that Adolf Hitler was going to be in the theatre for the premiere. Cox joining a cast that includes Bob McCown, Nick Kypreos, Doug MacLean, Jim Lang, Gord Stellick, Rob Faulds and other useless, useless tools that make something as simple and pleasant as watching a hockey game into a three hour endurance exercise.
This is really a match made in heaven, and it makes it all the easier to avoid Damien Cox, as he will no longer show his little face on TSN for any reason ever.
