Quick Hits Yet Again:

This is the funniest thing I've seen in a while.

The Pete Rose deal confirms only one thing: The Feiler Faster Principle. As Rob Neyer predicted back in December, the release date was SUPPOSED to be orchestrated to come after the Hall of Fame announcement. However, it didn't. Instead, it leaked to a Philadelphia Inquirer columnist on Friday, but didn't become big news until Monday, when ABC leaked clips from its Thursday (the magic date!) interview of Rose by Charles Gibson. ABC owns the ESPN family of networks, which are 24/7 sports. And so the timing goes kablooie, as the news media moves faster than it was supposed to. And who gets screwed? Molitor and Eckersley, as all anyone can talk about in regards to the Hall of Fame is Rose.

Celebrity Mole: Yucatan is coming! Best reality show out there, even though ABC has done everything in its power to kill it. First, you bury the first two shows against West Wing, with everyday folks. You know, the interesting shows. Then, you lose Anderson Cooper to CNN and replace him with Ahmad Rashad, a downgrade if I ever heard one. They brought back ultra-annoying Corbin Bernsen and Stephen Baldwin, and they're losing last year's heart of the show, Kathy Griffin (who also apparently got lost on the way from Average Joe to Average Joe 2: Hawaii). And yet, it can't suck. It's The Mole, the most clever reality show ever. They'll abuse the contestants and drive the viewers crazy with hidden clues and it'll be hilarious. It simply cannot suck.


Theme? We don't need no stinkin' theme!
