This non-sports-idiot had not heard of former TSN personalities Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole until I read yesterday that "Skippy" was dissing their new job as hosts on Fox Sports Live.

Marc Price played Irwin "Skippy" Handelman on the horrible sitcom Family Ties (1982-1989). Fine; he did not produce the show, he was employed as an actor. So there is no need for comments like "he was in a crap series"; or, "he's a washed-up actor". The fact is Monsieur Price went on to do some producing for television while maintaining some sort of a profile as a stand-up comedian; which leads me to....

The stand-up comedian is not funny, I don't feel, in the way he knocks people and races. Check this out; it's Price's Twitter...

Forgetting a particular racist tweet, for a moment, he manages to use both the "F" and "C" words (with bad grammar, no less). Distasteful and unnecessary, never mind judgement with the subjective question of whether or not Price is funny.

Vulgar "man".

The Toronto Star piece which made me read further...
Skippy from Family Ties not impressed with Jay Onrait, Dan O’Toole on Fox Sports Live?
