The Bill Polian Show Returns... Sort Of

And here you thought you'd be sparred the insane ramblings of a once great NFL executive:

NEW YORK – January 27, 2012 – Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that former Indianapolis Colts Vice Chairman Bill Polian has joined SiriusXM NFL Radio, the only radio channel dedicated to the NFL 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Polian will make his debut on Monday, January 30, on Late Hits (8:00 – 11:00 pm ET). He’ll host the show again on Wednesday, February 1, and Friday, February 3, and will be heard regularly on the channel throughout the year. SiriusXM NFL Radio is available to listeners nationwide on channel 88 on Sirius and XM Premier (formerly known as "The Best of Sirius").

I'm actually a little surprised ESPN wasn't able to snatch-up Polian and have him do football commentary the way they use noted gasbag Bob Knight for their college basketball coverage. Like Knight, Polian has a brilliant sports mind and offers occasional nuggets of wisdom about the game he was so closely associated with for decades.

Also like Knight, Polian is batsh*t nuts, thinks way too highly of himself, and treated people who worked and played for him like urinal cakes.

In case you are wondering, no. I will not to be tuning into this show and transcribing every little thing that dribbles out of Bill Polian's mouth. While it was certainly entertaining to listen to ole Bill routinely make an idiot out of himself, and then laughably try to thwart our efforts to transcribe what he said to a larger audience, I'm just not up to it anymore. Let someone else do that sh*t.
