    Has he been doing television for long?

    He was on with Bob Ryan yesterday, and I thought he wasn't half-bad. I just had no idea he was in that line of work.

    +1 I was surprised by his wide knowledge of sports, not just tennis. I could see him replacing Levatard as a guest host.

    He and his brother filled in for WFAN here in NYC after Imus got fired for about a week. Horrible.

    I've never seen him on anything other than tennis broadcasts/segments before this, though he's being doing those for many years.

    I did kinda wonder if they fed him either facts or opinions.

    Like another said he has been in broadcasting for years and years with tennis from doing studio, play by play and interviews so he has those skills.

    Overall I thought he did a pretty good job, you can tell that he had decent knowledge of the things he discussed but I could tell he was limited in scope of the discussion so he probably is not a huge sports fan and he tend to be more personal when the topics were near and dear to him, Bill Walsh and the Yankees. He substituted on the “former” Dan Patrick Radio show about a month ago and did pretty much showed the same thing.

    He's been filling in for years on "1st and 10" on "ESPN First Take"(used to be Cold Pizza) and doing this same sort of thing with Skip Bayless.

    He seems knowlegeable when I see him on Cold Pizza/First Take. Then again, he's usually debating the moron Skip Bayless who can make a can of paint seem smart.

    I thought he was kind of stiff and robotic...eh, I don't like it when anyone other than the old man and Wilbon are doing it, so I'm biased...
