Colin Cowherd bashes Ca-Boom

The sports media silliness never stops, even when you drive all the way to Cortland to try to escape it.

Actually, spending four hours in a car makes it worse sometimes.

Thank you to the several people who emailed me to make sure I knew about it, but I did hear ESPN Radio's Colin Cowherd bashing those - most notably WFAN's Craig Carton and Boomer Esiason - who have asserted ESPN overdid it Tuesday in covering the latest Brett Favre non-retirement.

At least in this case, Ca-Boom was right, of course. As for the part where Cowherd accused WFAN of consistently overdoing it on Mets coverage because it is the team's flagship station . . . I don't buy that.

Like all sports talk stations, WFAN talks mostly about whatever local team is losing games at any given time. Winners are boring.

Hence there has been more Mets than Yankees talk this season.

But if the Yankees aren't careful, they will start to catch up soon.

Speaking of which . . . I will be unable to blog the rest of the day, but advance congratulations to Alex Rodriguez, who is certain to hit his 600th career home run in his second at-bat today. Remember where you read it first.

(UPDATE: What I meant to say was he'd do it in his first at-bat today.)
