Hi I'm Rick Reilly.
I work for ESPN now and they put me on television instead of just leaving me in print. You might notice me from my appearance helping Berman and Joe Morgan announce the home run derby. Yes, I was attempting to make a lot of jokes and be Mr. Funny Guy. Yes, I acted like a complete ass and my joke about Mark McGwire was more played out than Omar Vizquel. Additionally, how astute was my observation that there were only white guys in the home run derby and my follow up of another not so funny joke.
If you're wondering I did in fact get the majority of my broadcasting lessons from Dennis Miller. Next time, I will attempt to make at least one joke funny. I promise.
