Chris Broussard is famous, and ESPN gives him a large megaphone; Tim Brando is less so. But their shared brand of cheap, not-all-that-righteous righteousness is entirely too dim, lazy and small to mean anything, no matter how easy it is hear their voices.

Mike Francesa is not just the most powerful and self-confident and ham-like personality in sports radio, although he is that. He's also a recognizably New York type, and a state of mind. So, yeah, definitely someone worth talking about.
