I love when he does baseball highlights sometimes and references Kendrick Lamar when someone hits a home-run with "pitch, don't kill my vibe". Example: Stuart Scott speaking: 9th inning, Yasiel Puig comes up to the plate and says (as they show him about to hit a home-run) pitch, don't kill my vibe.

Oh its a change to the layout. I thought it was gonna be a change that mattered, like instead of staying to be the bias news network they have turned into, just show me news and highlights. Leave the one sided bias to debate shows like first take, I watch sportscenter for updates on sports, scores, and players. Not to have the view of the writers shoved down my throat.

Have any of you had a chance to see the new Fox Sports 1 channel yet, specifically their Fox Sports Live program (direct opponent of SportsCenter's)? What are your thoughts so far?

The only clear advantage I see as of now from Fox Sports 1 over ESPN is they do have the more attractive females overall.

 

I also like in some ways that they don't take themselves as seriously most of the time so they have more room to push the envelope more and not be as "politically correct" so to speak, but at the same time in saying that, it can work against them too if they overdo it at times and come off as unprofessional thus not as credible or serious.

^ Woah! No sarcasm there? A clear & fully positive review from you? That does not occur too often I must say. I guess this really must be impressive then.

What do you mean?  When things are crappy I will say it, when they're good,. I'll say it.  It's not my fault that most sports television (Time Warner Cable Sports in particular) have absolutely dropped the ball as far as sports coverage go.  Whether you like ESPN or not their presentation, studio sets, field pieces, video pieces and current event reporting was the best since day one.  There's a reason they are where they are.
