It’s official. Stephen A. Smith is the most annoying person in sports media. You the people have spoken.
Stephen A. took down fellow First Take partner Skip Bayless, 52%-48%, to take the crown. That means that Smith, the overall 1-seed in our 64 Most Annoying People In Sports Media bracket, held serve throughout the entire tournament. We can’t say we’re surprised.
Thank you to everyone who voted – we had over 600,000 votes cast during the tournament. You can see the results of the first round here, the second round here, the Sweet 16 here, the Elite 8 here, the Final Four here and the title game here.
We’ve put together a little something to commemorate the event – our version of One Shining Moment to celebrate Stephen A’s victory.
Here’s the final bracket. Congratulations to Stephen A. Smith – we think.
Prepare yourselves for next year’s tournament.
