Well, Finebaum has never jumped the shark because he's never been more than a small time drip anyway.
No one should ever expect new ESPN employee Paul Finebaum to bite his tongue. The longtime talkshow host was asked about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and his response was — as you would expect — not at all measured:
“I feel like it’s Thursday night again and I’m watching ‘Sharknado.’ You can’t take your eyes off the screen. It’s a train wreck, but it is very compelling, and it’s also very disturbing for many reasons…
Whose fault is it? Is it his fault? Of course, you have to take some personal responsibility, even if you’re young. But can you blame Kevin Sumlin or the administration at Texas A&M? Johnny Manziel was a problem child before he started becoming the famous football player.”
This afternoon, Finebaum returned to ESPNU’s coverage of SEC Media Days and suggested that Manziel has “jumped the shark.”
