I loved Eddie Dean’s piece on Channel 4 sports-clown George Michael (“Bad Sport,” 12/26/97). I’d add a couple of things to it, however. Doesn’t Michael also do some sort of semi-annual location shoot at his ranch? I remember seeing him drool over his twin purebred ponies on the 6 o’clock news. And as insufferable as Michael is, he’s at least more original than new Channel 9 sports-dude Ken Boo. Boo is an over-the-hill sarcastic sap who does a pretty pathetic job trying to maintain the same golden tan as our man George.
