Blog Show No. 53: I Hate Goodbyes

If I wasn’t so rushed, I’d get weepy about this like the last time my dalliance with a blog-based sports broadcast came to an end. Fortunately for you, I’m in the midst of working moving having a baby, so let’s stick to the facts.

What the Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic viewing audience (Hi, Grandma!) was treated to Wednesday late afternoon was the final edition of Blog Show as we know it. Steinz and I got to panel-ize along with highly professional broadcast professional Russ Thaler for the entire 60 minutes of Washington Post Live; wearing big boy clothes all the while. One of the segments (the one seen below, in fact), centered on the awkward little program that could and walked through our signature moments: broken YouTubes, obscene dancing, Soulja Boy, Erin Andrews, Don King and so on.

It was enormous fun, if a bit indulgent, and I thank super producer Adam Littlefield and company for giving us the opportunity, which really was once in a lifetime. Again, I don’t have time to get into it, but if you want to see me emote on the matter, just go to the 8:11 mark. I mean it all.

Bonus: Follow the jump for Rusty’s poignant and flattering final thought, titled “Blog Show=The Simpsons” (not really).

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Nooooooooooo!!!!! What am I going to do without Steinz on television? And what of the Blog Show drinking game? I ask you again, WHAT OF THE DRINKING GAME??? I can’t play to old episodes, I already do that during the days between shows.

    Can’t believe we didn’t mention/play the Blog Show drinking game. That was a career highlight, and I thank you for it.

    Also, to be clear, Steinz isn’t going anywhere. He’ll still be on Comcast SportsNet every week or whatever. And Blog Show isn’t going anywhere either. (I mean, it’s sponsored. That shit’s paid for.) It just may not resemble its current form, i.e. I won’t be on it.

    Do NOT count against breaking news. It’s a TV thing. You wouldn’t really understand. Because you just blog.

    Did Steinz’s coat/tie appease Mike Wise?

    So Jamie, if you’re moving is this site still going to be DC themed? Sorry if you covered that already but I’m new to the site.

    Same here. This is my first and, apparently, last Blog Show. I was going to ask for a warning about the opening drum lick. My dogs were barking (that is not a metaphor) within 2 seconds.

    Congrats on getting to 53. That’s just impressive and a well-timed exit. You don’t want go to on TV with the newborn-at-home dead eyes.

    God Bless the Blog Show. R.I.P (also a belated R.I.P. to Saved by the Blog}

    I guess I am the only person that thinks there should be a Mottram Brothers edition of the Blog Show. There can be 2 different blog shows. Right?

    Yall can call it

    1. Irrelevant sports blogs weekly
    2. Look at these sports blogs weekly
    3. Youtubin Sports Blogs Weekly

    Needless to say, I am all for the “weekly” part of the title. :-)
