With an assist from Fox Sports, I am thinking about revamping the way I teach my sports writing class. Here’s the idea:
Cancel all classes except the first and last ones
Cancel all readings and all assignments except for one
The lone assignment is that students must watch every minute of Fox Sports’ “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed” sports talk show starring Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe
On the last day of class, I walk in, look every student in the eyes and dramatically intone: “Don’t. You. DARE. Do. ANYTHING. That. Skip. Bayless. Does. Ever.” Then I walk out.
I think it would be the most effective sports writing class ever.
