Olbermann Dethroned...

Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews were ousted today as MSNBC's anchors for election coverage, with claims being made that they were too overtly liberal on-air.

Before there was Keith the bleeding lefty, there was Keith, SportsCenter mainstay. From 1992 to 1997, Olbermann was one of the go-tos for ESPN, before he was sacked there unceremoniously.

Here's a few of Keith's best clips from that era, including the report on Bret Favre entering rehab (where he's talking so fast he almost seizes) and a Boston Market commercial where he invokes the term ooie-gooey (sp.)

Awesome post as always.

If I know Olbermann, he will position himself to gain form this somehow. MSNBC will give him more air time or he will show up on NBC more.

I am not a lefty, but i like him from ESPN, and he used to make me laugh happy all the time. :-)

Anyway, as expected, there's a rally to get him back in the game:
