I don't think I'll ever know why Max Kellerman ever left the now-badly-foundering "Around the Horn", but "I, Max" is fantastic. Other than it doesn't have the great Woody Paige/Jay Mariotti rivalry, I absolutely prefer this show's format. Max is the host, talking with fellow ATH refugee Michael Holley, a guest star (usually a sports player or coach), and then answering viewer e-mail. Bill Wolff, aka the Disembodied Voice, is the judge who scores the points made.
Max and Wolff are really able to open up on each since there's no other guys (besides Holley, of course) to bug them. If Woody Paige does eventually join this show, as I've heard on the grapevine, I'll have no reason at all to watch "Around the Horn" any more. Even without Paige, "I, Max", with the possible exception of PTI, is The Best Damn Sports Show Period. (sorry for possible copyright infringement)
Ten enthusiastic stars.
