Late Show: Phil Simms Terrible Super Bowl Broadcast
Phil Simms, former Giants quarterback and commentator for CBS, might have needed a pep talk from Sean McManus, the chairman of CBS Sports, during the Super Bowl. Many sports fans and critics have been talking about Simms’ coverage of the Super Bowl saying he did alright, he covered the points that needed to be covered, but he didn’t talk about anything that everyone couldn’t see in front of their eyes.
Many fans are complaining about the lack of coverage of Ray Lewis who was being hyped up in pre-Super Bowl coverage but only had his name mentioned a few times before the fourth quarter. Others are looking deeper wondering why Simms did not go into any details about the game. Why were the Ravens winning? Could the 49ers just not keep up or were there missed tackles and lanes left wide open? And which coach was doing a better job with the play calls?
Hopefully he gets a second chance calling the big game in the future. Do you think he is getting too old to call football games? Should he pack it up and hit the road? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Late Show: Jose James For All We Know Review
Jose James is a recording artist best known for mixing modern jazz and hip-hop to create a sound all his own. James has had music in his blood since he was born to a Panamanian multi-intrumentalist father. But James seems to not have known how far his talents could take him. He didn’t release his first solo record until he was 30-years-old in 2008. But with time comes patience and perseverance. Just two years after debuting his first album, James released his album For All We Know, which won the L’Académie du Jazz Grand Prix for Best Vocal Jazz Album in 2010.
James said of the music, “much of the music draws upon my love for the softer sounds of late 60’s and 70’s R&B, particularly the music of Flack, Donny Hathaway and Marvin Gaye.”
The name of his newest album even comes from the name of an old Donny Hathaway LP.
