Well, HuffPo has been good for one thing. I never realized Jim “the Lamps are on but nobody’s home” -ley was a raving nutball.
He never was much of a sportsreader, an avocation that requires only that you have television hair and speak without a lisp. You don’t even have to be marginally literate, since an earpiece not only instructs you on what to say, but how to say it.
Having failed as a sportsreader, I guess he’s trying his hand at punditry. Risky move when he’s so used to mouthing the writings and opinions of others. Come to think of it, most lefty pundits do just that, taking marching orders from the ravingest rabid lambs of the fringe leftwingnutroots.
Maybe he wants to be the new Keith “Klueless” Olbermann?
Punching It Out with GlassJaw Jim Lampley
Jim will mix it up with a woman though:
HBO boxing sportscaster Jim Lampley was arrested in San Diego County on charges of “suspicion of domestic violence and other counts” late yesterday afternoon. According to gossip juggernaut TMZ.com, Lampley was arrested at his girlfriend’s home and had been under investigation because of previous complaints. There are no mugshot photos, norwill there be one, because, according to a source at the always reliable Smoking Gun, San Diego County does not release them. Dammit.
Lampley has apparently been married three times, one time to this terrifying looking woman, Bree Walker, who was formerly an anchor at San Diego station KNSD and Los Angeles’ CBS affiliate, was also in violation of a restraining order when the incident occurred yesterday.
This begs many questions about Lampley’s character, but first and foremost, does this mean he will no longer be able to blog at The Huffington Post?
