Outside the Lines on ESPN is one of the best shows on television year in and year out. They have great stories. In depth analysis. Interesting insights. And they normally paint the entire picture for the audience. It is overall just great reporting and something I always look forward to watching.
Recently, on an episode, Bob Ley, who is one of the best sports reporters in the game and has been working on the show since it began in 1990, was forced into reading (rapping) some Jay-Z lyrics. Now it is not every day that you get to see Bob Ley rap. These Jay Z lyrics were relevant to the recent LeBron James/DeShawn Stevenson rumblings.
After watching this clip, I still love Ley and think he is one of the best. But he is definitely no Jay-Z on the mic (rapping that is). The LeBron James saga can make almost anything happen. I mean it made a sports reporter on Outside the Lines “rap” on air. LeBron James has transformed sports coverage as we know it.
Stay tuned for the next edition of TheSportsKraze.
