Re: Jim Rome is a moron
I like that Rome is willing to thumb his nose at certain athletes who are not his "jungle guys." There are plenty of sports figures who need to be taken down a few pegs. I don't care much for his softball interviewing style, but I guess it would be tough to get anyone to appear on the show if his hard-edged persona was always "on."
I like him enough that I listen to Rome occasionally, but I've found that a little of the show goes a long way for me. My three biggest objections are his SoCal bias, the fact that he picks obvious targets for ridicule and his over-reliance on dramatic pauses and repetition. Occasionally, his material hits a home run for me, but mostly, it's worth a chuckle or two.
