    I always thought Krumrie's was much worse. Probably because Theisman is such a doosh.

    Can someone corroborate this?

    A friend of mine insists that Theisman was actually pronounced Thees-man. Then during his bid for the Heisman trophy, they switched the pronunciation....

    if that's true, he's been elevated to Supa-Doosh!

    I've heard the same thing. It is also mentioned on his Wiki page:

    "He played football for the University of Notre Dame and was a runner-up for the 1970 Heisman Trophy which went to Jim Plunkett of Stanford University. Late in the season, his hallmates in Zahm Hall hung an enormous banner out of a 4th story window proclaiming, "Theisman for Heisman", (sic) changing the original pronunciation of his surname, "THEEZ-man," to rhyme with "Heisman", which he has used since."

    I hereby nominate Joe Theisman for King of the Douches!!!

    All in favor, say "AYE"

    All opposed, break his shin...


    Ok, I don't want to cause him any pain. But he is just the worst thing ever as far as color guys go. I hate him so much it hurts. Actually, its been a toss up between him and Lee Corso for years!

    So wait...if a broken shin is a "nay" vote, then Lawrence Taylor doesn't think Theismann is a douche?

    I remember that, I also remember that for the first few months after that was about the only time the guy ever displayed any humility. Kudos to L.T., he knew the Joe T. was hurt and immediately was signaling for the trainer.
