What show do you like more?
Around THe Horn or Pardon The Interruption

I like ATH better because I cannot stand Kornheiser. Plus, i love the whitty quotes on Woody Paige's board.

PTI for me, and it's not even close. Woody Paige, Bill Plaschke, Jay Mariotti, and Bob what's his face are all annoying as hell.

Kornheiser and Wilbon are gold together.

ATH was good when Woody cared, now he is happy he gets blacked out in the first 5 mins.

PTI is okay can't stand Korn.

I watch them both pretty much every day and they just kind of bring different things. On ATH your guaranteed to get at least one person who knows alot about the topic, on PTI sometimes they won't know much about what they're saying, but they are pretty funny. I like Tony alot on PTI but he's soo annoying on MNF.

PTI.

I've always liked reading Kornheiser and Wilbon, plus they compliment eachother very well.

Tony Reali is a douche although I like Woody Paige.
I also don't like Kornheiser but Wilbon is cool.

Damn, this is tough. But I think I gotta go with PTI because of my disdain for stat boy AND Jay Mariotti.

If one's on, I almost always catch both....idk.

If I say ATH, it's because it's on first. Seriously. Both shows hit pretty much the same topics, so I always only half pay attention to PTI when it's on because it's just new opinions on the same things.

I like both....I really do.

Actually that's how I like to start my day, it's better then Sportscenter re-runs all morning...They have been good lately with interviews from guys, I just can't stand Skip Bayless.


But I love PTI, ATH is ok and I watch every week, but I like the opinions on PTI much better.

IDK, this one is tough. I watch both religolously and pretty much everyday, so I would prolly give the slight edge to PTI. However, I have recently started to hate Woody Paige, the man I used to say put ATH over the top of PTI IMO, but now I have noticed since he says Billups and some other dude are better MVP canadates than D-Wade, I am starting to hate him. So recently I have switched to more of a PTI guy. Kornheiser is the man on the show (epic suckage on MNF) and Wilbon is cool too. I see a lot of hate on Jim Rome, he isn't that bad, he isn't great, but he isn't a total doucher or anything. Skip Bayless I think gets paid to have redicolously stupid other side of the tracks thinking, but yeah, he is kind of a tool, and I believe every1 is entitled to an opinion even if u are a tool.

When PTI has Kornheiser and Wilbon, it is much better than ATH.

When PTI has Dan Le Batard and either Kornheiser or Wilbon, it is still much better than ATH. BAM!

You can put a monkey next to TK on PTI and it would still be gold. I think he's amazing on his show, not so much on MNF.

Can't honestly say I watch much of either, but PTI does have Dan LeBatard on the show sometimes, so they win.

LeBatard's radio show is the best thing ever, I hope it goes national one day so you all can partake in the genius that is his show.

He acts like a douche sometimes on TV, but i agree that everything LeRetard says is good. I wish i had a way to listen to his show, i enjoy seeing him on PTI with Tony.

pti is better.

but. i did have a soft spot in my heart for i, max when it was on...

but. that said. the combination of kornheiser and wilbon is fantastic. wilbon is probably one of the better espn talking heads... between wilbon, tirico, and van pelt... they're a triumverate of awesomeness.

I am actually a big Around The Horn mark. They usually bust out some decent stats. It is fun and entertaining at times, and they make some good comments. I like PTI as well, just my thoughts.

I listen to Kellerman on EspnNews Sirius on occassion. If you have an IPOD, his PodCast is really good (and free).

ARH was great when they had guys like Michael Smith on who actually knew somewhat about the subjects they covered.

I just cannot watch a show that boasts Kevin Blackistone, Tim Cowlishaw, Jay Mariotti, Bill Plaatchski, etc as their talking panel.

PTI is good, although Wilbon gets on my nerves. Love Kornheiser though usually on that show.

I miss shows like Sports Reporters.

I felt the same way about 1st and 10 and Skip Bayless. Then I looked up who Bayless actually is, and mannnn does he have some cred. The guy knows his stuff.

You can listen to his show online at 790theticket.com ; it actually starts in 30 minutes. Don't expect a sports show though, it's definitely an entertainment talk show revolving around sports.

For instance yesterday's show was about why mascots have not evolved in the past 30-40 years...great stuff! He always has the best interviews too, he will actually asks fun and interesting questions instead of the usual boring questions. See: Phelps, Michael controversy.

PTI is tolerable...I used to like it a lot but, I find most of the stuff they talk about to be completely boring most of the time and 5 good minutes almost always sucks and seems to take forever. Plus, they're last in line, so if you watched any of the shows that preceded it, you already know what they'll be talking about.

I also cant stand when ESPN will have the same guest on...Mike and Mike, then First Take, and then Rome/PTI all in the same day.

I may not like them but, I still always seem to watch them. There isnt much alternative. Atleast Stump the Schwab isnt on anymore.
