Barack Obama on ESPN - McCain staff, return those calls

ESPN’s sitdown with Barack Obama is outlined in full by Awful Announcing, hands down the best sports TV blog there is. It seems awfully brief and fluff-filled, as if the Worldwide Leader was very uncomfortable with asking any tough questions. C’mon, folks – Al Gore and Jack Kemp had to answer questions about Roberto Alomar spitting in an umpire’s face in a Vice Presidential debate! We deserve to know what Obama thinks of the BCS controversy! Favre’s prospects in New York! The designated hitter!

But the obvious question is: when will ESPN sit down with John McCain? No media bias here, folks – ESPN assures AOL’s Fanhouse that they’ve asked McCain to do an interview, but haven’t gotten a call back. Well, that’s just splendid.
