Can't Watch TV
Last night I was flipping through the channels on TV when I noticed a program on the SciFi channel that got my attention. It wasn't the title of the program but the host that got my attention. The show was one of those quasi-journalistic UFO fanatic programs titled 'UFO Invasion at Rendlesham'. The host for the show was Bryant Gumble. Oh how the big headed one has fallen. His was a meteoric rise from gridiron commentator to the Today show host but then his fall from grace as his ego pushed him to headlining the CBS Early Show shows that what goes up with hot air must fall when the ratings cool.
What is next for Bryant? I could envision, 'The Man Raised by Sasquatch', or possibly 'Did the Mermaids Survive the Tsunami?' Then again he might even sink to infomercials next hawking wares with Ron Popeil. There is always the chance that he could resurrect his career. Geraldo did it after the Al Capone's Vault fiasco, which proved that it could be done.
If he can resurrect his career maybe he will show a little more humility or maybe he will just become the King of the Weird Science crowd with his big ego intact.
