Ocho and Skip aren’t that much different.
I like Skip Bayless, not because I listen to anything he says because the majority of it doesn’t make any sense, but because he was smart enough to know we live in a society where Basketball Wives and Jersey Shore are top rated shows and flash is more important than substance.
Skip use to be a real journalist back in the day (I have followed Skip’s work since the mid 90’s), but he is now an entertainer. It pays better to be an entertainer than being a beat writer getting paid less than your average blogger.
He knows a lot of people live in the Matrix and feeds into that. Brilliant if you ask me.
When Chad Ochocinco was leading the AFC in touchdowns and catches he was just known as a football players who did creative celebration dances.
Ocho has become more famous as his production has went down.
Think about that for minute, while his numbers have went down, his status has went up. Go up to a non NFL fan and asked them have they heard of OchoCinco and then ask them if they know Andre Johnson.
Once again brilliant.
Is Ocho honestly peeved at Skip? Maybe, probably not but there little beef got the desired effect which is people talking.
Slow hand clap.
