Dennis O’Donnell interviews a combative Jay Mariotti, who was either sweaty or wore too much hair gel

Dennis O’Donnell took some time out from breaking news last night to interview Jay Mariotti. The intro montage included a rundown of Mariotti’s career with a heavy focus on the domestic assault cases from 2010 and 2011, to which he pleaded no contest. Mariotti, who was combative throughout most of the interview, was not pleased with the intro.

“I got a kick out of your open, there. There’s so much garbage and lies, right there. I mean, that whole thing is just an internet compilation of crap. And I’d be glad to knock each one down,” he said. “Don’t believe the sensational nonsense.”

When they showed Mariotti in studio with O’Donnell, it appeared as if he had just played three hours of pickup basketball. Was he ever this sweaty on Around the Horn? Maybe he was wearing an enormous amount of Brandon Crawford’s hair product that made it look like he was perspiring heavily?
