I’ll be the first to confess that I do not watch ESPN’s First Take. The main reason why I avoid that show like the plague: Skip Bayless. He drives me crazy like no other person on TV can. I dislike him more than I dislike Zooey Deschanel and that’s saying a lot.
On Monday morning while sitting in the den with my dad, he turned First Take on and before I left the room in protest I heard them mention that John Legend was going to be on the show to debate Skip later in the week.
Now, I love John Legend. LOVE. He’s one of my bucket list musicians. I need to see that man perform live at least once before I leave this blue pebble called Earth. But I loathe Skip Bayless so much that I skipped – ha – this morning’s edition of First Take.
A few moments ago, ESPN’s twitter account tweeted a link to a video of Mr. Legend’s appearance on the show. Now, I wish I hadn’t avoided it.
He performed a Tim Tebow-themed parody to the tune of his 2004 hit song “Ordinary People,” called “Extraordinary Tebow.” He basically called out ESPN and the First Take participants – Bayless and Stephen A. Smith – for their Tebow obsession.
It’s quite hilarious.
