Before Skip Bayless firmly sat down and took the ESPN throne for King Troll, the role was admirably fulfilled by one Keith Olbermann. His shtick eventually ran its course, and an ugly divorce between the worldwide leader and Olbermann sparked a decade-long feud.
Since the folks up in Bristol have zero shame, ol’ Keith has since returned and has relatively flown under the radar even though he still spews out the same aggressive, asinine opinions on his daily program, “Olbermann.” I imagine this is due to no one under the age of 55 watching this snoozefest of a show with humor that comparatively makes your dad’s jokes come off like Louis C.K. But if you thought Olbermann would stand for this irrelevance, you don’t know Olbermann.
He has finally caught the attention of the youth — and particularly every student at Penn State.

Alright, Keith. Not even going to ease into this one, huh? Let’s see how this plays out.
Dave put up an admirable fight, but he made the classic mistake of feeding the troll. Under no circumstance should you ever answer a troll with a serious response. There’s just no scenario where you don’t lose both time and brain cells.
The thing about Olbermann is that he’s such a pompous douchenozzle that even when he knows he’s in the wrong, he’ll never admit such weakness. Just the worst kind of human being.
Finally, a tip of the hat to everyone up at Happy Valley for raising more than $13 million for cancer research. Youse guys (channeling my inner Philly) are the real MVPs..
We are aware of the exchange Keith Olbermann had on Twitter last night regarding Penn State. It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN. We have discussed it with Keith, who recognizes he was wrong. ESPN and Keith have agreed that he will not host his show for the remainder of this week and will return on Monday. The annual tradition of THON and the efforts of the students of Penn State to fight pediatric cancer should be applauded.
I apologize for the PSU tweets. I was stupid and childish and way less mature than the students there who did such a great fundraising job.

ESPN no doubt forced his hand on this one. Like I said, Keith wouldn’t willingly admit fault.
