And now, a word about the two-bit weasel slug

Tony KornheiserAh, yes, the two-bit weasel slug. I remember seeing something about this on Animal Planet. They're only found in certain climates around the world, and are usually harmless, unless provoked by sports columnists.

A few days ago we talked about Tony Kornheiser's worry that he would be a flop on Monday Night Football. I didn't see his first performance so I can't comment on it (but you can go ahead and put your comments below), but his coworker at The Washington Post did and wrote a review of it. And now Kornheiser is fighting back at Paul Farhi's review, calling him a two-bit weasel slug and saying he's someone "I would gladly run over with a Mack truck."

For the record, the coworkers here at TV Squad never say bad things about each other. Ever.

I thought Tony did OK in his first broadcast... you could tell he was nervous, but he admitted as much. I like his self-deprecating style and fast wit. He'll never be the play-by-play guy that Tirico or Theismann is I guess, but Theismann's ego drives me nuts.

I was going to complain that Bob sould be madder at Adam with his comment til I realised Adam is your TV squad coworker Adam. Heh!

And Derek may just have forgotten his ;)

Derek: is that really necessary? Do you really think I'd take the line "two bit weasel" out of nowhere and throw it in a headline?

I linked to the wrong piece. I corrected it.

At what point does he fight back, or use the term "two-bit weasel slug"? Did you link to the wrong article, or did you just make this up, Bob?

Not sure if it has been edited, but that quote is not in the WaPo article that's linked to.

Meanwhile I thought Tony did great. The 3 of them need to work on their timing, but it was a solid start and bodes well. He's no Dennis Miller; his references are normal, and he does understand football generally.
