Keith Olbermann calling anyone the “worst d–khead” in any area is about as ironic as it can get, but here we are. During ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, Olbermann took to Twitter to rip his former colleague at ESPN, Matt Vasgersian.
Vasgersian, who was broadcasting the game between the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs with another beacon of sincerity, Alex Rodriguez, told a story about Jon Sciambi, the play-by-play announcer for the Chicago Cubs TV broadcasts.
Apparently, that was the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back for legendary curmudgeon Keith Olbermann.
OK for the entirety of my 2018-21 tenure @espn I stayed silent about this but Matt Vasgersian is the worst dickhead in baseball.

Olbermann wasn’t done after calling Matt Vasgersian the “worst d–khead in baseball.” Not by a long shot.
He then tweeted, “This is not the first rime Vasgersian has trashed an @espn colleague – this year. Anchoring one of @MLBNetwork’s many deplorable studio shows in spring training, Vasgersian followed @jasonbenetti’s sign off of a White Sox broadcast by insulting Benetti’s last words.”
Then the man who Philadelphia magazine once asked about in the headline “Keith Olbermann: Worst Person in the World?” had one final parting shot at Vasgersian, tweeting, “It is an accomplishment of biblical proportions to share a booth with @AROD and make HIM look like the reasonable, well-liked, talented one. But Vasgersian has managed to do it. The capper is: he’s also one of the worst pxp in the sport. He mocks others because they are better.”

It’s almost like they are joking and friends. It’s probably been a while since you have had one of those.— Have you 👀my ⚾️? 🌭➕Beans (@WarrensBaseball) August 9, 2021
You’re a close second.— Black Lightning (@TrillVader) August 9, 2021
Sounds like you’re bitter at no longer being in the “club”, Keith. You’ve become a pariah in the industry and someone we have all come to recognize as unhinged. You’re realizing you’re no longer relevant in the sports or political world and you’re panicking. Get some help— Dave Becker (@DaveBec84382344) August 9, 2021
And airing this stuff is why, wherever you go, you always end up gone. There is not a more detestable human being in media, or anywhere, than you. A filthy, malignant person...— Andrew David (@rip242) August 9, 2021
Keith, you are such a sad pathetic person. You dont touch Matty V as a person or his career. You are an embarrassment to all men and sports fans @dar_br123 @mrevanmeyer @Jerry_Machado69 @jonadamfinney— Shawn Johnson (@Godfather_JS) August 11, 2021

Absolutely impossible. Pretty clear you are the biggest d@#head in whatever sport you are speaking about from your soapbox which I can only assume is made of dead non liberal babies. Please just go away.— Allan Carr (@AllanCa40793038) August 10, 2021
