Watch Around the Horn
- 15 Seasons
Around The Horn is a half-hour sports talk show by ESPN, presented by Tony Reali and a slew of sports analysts, writers, and even former athletes themselves. In Around The Horn, four panelists introduced comically by Reali will be awarded points according to the strengths of their arguments, which can be variable according to the topic. By the end of the round, the panelist with the least amount of points is eliminated; in the case of a tie, Reali will break the tie by arbitrary things, such as the best combed hair or the most colorful tie. Popular rounds include "Buy or Sell", where panelists are asked to "buy" or "sell" teams, players, or concepts; "Out of Bounds", where panelists will discuss a story indirectly related to sports, such as "diving" in sports; and "Facetime", a 30-second remark where the winner can freely choose to talk about anything he or she wants. Popular panelists in Around The Horn include Michael Smith, Woody Paige, Tim Coleshaw, and Bill Plaschke. Panelists are not present in the studio; rather, they appear in offices in their city of profession.
