    Christine Brennan

    ......finally landed a job commentating or interviewing for ABC/ESPN.

    I think she is a disgusting yellow journalist who knows nothing about the sport of figure skating in terms of the skating itself.

    But, this is just MHO. Her product to me is.......

    "BLAHBLAH blahblah blaHHHHH blah blah blah....."

    I was actually surprised when I heard that she's a commentator but I find some of her views reasonable in some aspects

    ITA with you ChiSk8Fan ... Good Lord, I can only imaging her comments (nothing objective, I assume). If she knew barely nothing with the 6.0, God knows what she'll say with the CoP. The should have place Paul Wyllie (sp?) and Sussy, I enjoy their comments during the GP events.

    OMG your post is perfect! I hope she is only interviewing and not commentating. It's bad enough seeing her face, I don't want to have to listen to her too. Ugh.

    I am in shock that Brennan is commentating. It should be interesting.

    Haha I just caught Brennan commentating on Stiegler and Magerovisky (sp). She looked a little nervous and she was stumbling a little as she was talking...rushing some as well. Interesting thing she said was that M was trying to get citizenship and if he doesn't, Stiegler may pair with Peter T for Turin.

    She sounded better and looked more comfortable when she interviewed B & A after they skated.

    I agree and she sounded as good as she possibly could for the Angela report. Nice and Symphathetic. That must have been extremely difficult

    Thumbs down

    Oh, she is just AWFUL! That monotone voice, those stupid questions. ("What happened on that jump?") DUH! Oh, please don't tell me that we can expect to hear Her Royal Vapidness for the remainder of the competition!

    of course she would ask stupid questions, I don't think she knows the difference between a lutz or a flip.... Geez, we were doing so great with the GP series, I loved the comments there, they took the time to analized a lot of the technical elements, to explain what could upgrade the GoE, etc... Please, bring Paul and Sussie on!

    Personally I think she's no worse than the other "let's go to the other non-talented gofer running around backstage for us" that they have had for years. I mean we REALLY had some winners recently So no she doesn't bug me.. it's not like she's taking over Peggy's job.. God I'll rip my hair out if Roz gets on the mike during Nationals.. As much blind as Peggy has gotten over the years.. PLEASE no Roz.. heck .. I might even take Brennan over that chatter box.

    Amen to that...I'd prefer Brennan any day over Roz...I swear if Roz ever becomes a commentator at the Nationals or Worlds or even the Olympics I'm gonna pull my hair out and literally scream.

    Oh, great. Maybe she'll mess it up like she did the last time.
