Wingo gives Pierce a taste of his own air horn medicine

With the news today that ESPN had hired former Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce as an NFL Live analyst, we wondered whether NFL Live host Trey Wingo would interrupt Pierce with an air horn, the way Pierce once did to a reporter in the Giants locker room.

We’re pleased to report that Wingo did just that.

On today’s NFL Live, Wingo formally introduced Pierce as the newest ESPN commentator and then asked him whether he’s fully prepared to be a member of the media and not a member of the fraternity of NFL players. Then, as Pierce began to answer, Wingo blew an air horn.

“Come on, come on,” said Pierce, who at first appeared to be caught off guard but then laughed it off. “That’s old.”

NFL Live then showed the clip from September 20, 2007, when Reischea Canidate (who then worked at Channel 5 in New York but now also works at ESPN) attempted to question Pierce about the Giants’ defense, only to be interrupted by Pierce blowing an air horn three times.

It’s nice to see that Wingo followed our suggestion. And we hope Pierce was only kidding when he told Wingo at the end of the segment, “I’m gonna get you back for that one.”

    Yeah, kind of like watching your slow ass chase down ballcarriers from ten yards behind.

    Trey is such a card. A lame, self indulgent and corny card that adds no value.

    Ha! Its obvious Pierce got butthurt about that. “That’s old”?? I believe that was the first time that a member of the media has blown an air horn on Pierce, so how can that be “old”?

    What does Antonio Pierce add? I agree Trey Wingo is a tool. That is true for 99% of the people at ESPN, the network that stopped being cool years ago.

    I must admit… I couldn’t make it through the whole interview… Wingo is painful enough to watch by himself, but Pierce looked completely nervous and out of place…. Come to think of it, he came across with the personality of a bologna and mayo on white…. so he should fit in perfectly with BSPN’s overloaded, undertalented staff….

    PIERCE WAS OVERRATED AS A PLAYER, PLEASE DONT START HYPING HIM UP.

    Did ESPN sign some contract that they HAVE to sign every notable player who retires? Can’t wait for that 12-man NFL Countdown crew.

    “So you wanna ask Howard, ‘How do you fix a motorcycle’ and ‘Who’s the fastest, who’s the best?'”

    ESPN still covers football?
    I know the ratings might not reflect it, but the NFL network has made the ESPN hype machine irrelevant in terms of Football news, throw in Gay-Face Florio and this website, which we all read religiously, and the only reason to turn on ESPN during football season is if the MNF game happens to be relevant that week.
    On a related side note, I was watching the MLL(glorified summer league lacrosse) All-Star game tonight, on ESPN2, and the bottom line constantly scrolled LeBron’s career stats and at 9:15ish it turned bright red with “BREAKING NEWS” saying, “LeBron James has stepped up to the podium to announce his decision.” this continued to scroll uninterrupted for 25 minutes! Prior to this, the bottom line scrolled, “Sources say LeBron is heavily leaning towards Miami.”. The bloodsuckers at ESPN even tried to scoop themselves!!!!! I mean c’mon, how do they really consider themselves a journalistic enterprise.

    Didn’t he transport some asshole out of state to help dispose of an illegal firearm or something?
