Twitter Mashup: The Mark May Edition

Rickey gets frustrated with Mark May but Rickey don't care. - USA TODAY Sports

Because it's the middle of the summer and football doesn't start for another six weeks, lets imagine Mark May lands a new, high-profile talk show with ESPN. He wants Rickey Henderson to co-host, so he finds Rickey on Twitter. It's not Rickey.

Mark May was an All-American offensive lineman at the University of Pittsburg and later played 13 seasons in the NFL, mostly (and most famously) with the Washington Redskins. He was a member of the "Hogs" with the Redskins and and helped the franchise win 2 Super Bowls.

However, most people only know him as the clown that argues with Lou Holtz on ESPN, late at night in some sort of courtroom setting. Obviously his image needs a tweak.

So the Mother Ship wants to try something different. They want Mark to host a weekly talk show about any topic under the sun, modeled after The View. Mark will have two new partners: A person that he believes is Hall of Fame outfielder Rickey Henderson and a guy named Paranoid Jimmy (James). To give the show an international flair, there might be an occasional cameo from a chubby Australian swimmer.

Due to budget restraints, this exciting new trio (and all cameos) will host their kitchen table discussions exclusively on Twitter. Here's what that might look like.
