I haven't missed Sports Show since it began airing on Comedy Central, and though I haven't been able to convince many of my friends or acquaintances or Twitter followers of his fundamental genius, or even gotten him to retweet me by acting like a sycophant, I will persist in that opinion until I get to that age where the government starts subsidizing the viewing of Two-and-a-Half Men.
