This Week’s Fourth Line: Kevin Ryder, Brad Pitt, Sergio Garcia

The media ice has turned out to be particularly slippery this week.

On Twitter last night during Game 4 of the Kings-Sharks series, Kevin & Bean co-host Kevin Ryder posted a very unfortunate guest tweet @LAKings for which he later apologized. Brad Pitt meanwhile in the pages of the upcoming June/July issue of Esquire is doing himself no favors by once again giving the voracious celebrity news blogosphere misdirect-coverage ammo about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.

Finally, today on ESPN Radio’s The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Golf Channel reporter Steve Sands called in from London to recount how shocked he and everyone else in the room was Tuesday when Sergio Garcia answered the reporter’s question with an offensive joke about Tiger Woods.

Social Shopping Site The Hunt Adds High-Profile Hollywood Investors

ESPN radio host Colin Cowherd likes to remind listeners that at Stanford, faculty are known to tell students that if they have a great idea, the best option is to drop out and fully pursue the opportunity. Less profitable studies can be completed later.

Well, here’s an idea that if it belonged to a 2012-13 Stanford undergrad, would fully merit that approach. The Hunt is a community-driven site designed to make photos shared through social media “shoppable.” For example, if you click on the nav-bar tab Hunt Types, your choices are: This Exactly; Similar To This; What Goes With This?; and This Look For Less. We clicked into the third category and soon were reading the user feedback under SHOES FOR THIS PROM DRESS.

This week, The Hunt announced it has closed its second round of funding, raising the seed total to $2.7 million. Among the latest investors are Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary’s AGR-ade Investments, Grammy Award winning songwriter-producer RedOne and ABC Entertainment Group executive vp of casting Keli Lee.

Hollywood Recasts ESPN Radio Host Colin Cowherd… as a Black Guy

OK, this is not usually the way it works in Hollywood. In fact, to the general protestations of various nationalities, Tinseltown has tended to whitewash the racial origins of many a real-life character inspiration so that the role can be played by a Caucasian A-lister.

Not so in the case of ESPN Radio show host Colin Cowherd (pictured). According to a report this afternoon in The Hollywood Reporter, a new sitcom based on the weekday morning personality is gearing up at CBS, with Damon Wayans in the lead, namesake role:

The pilot is written by Bill Martin andMike Schiff (Grounded for Life) and is inspired by acerbic ESPN personality Cowherd. Wayans’ character is named Nick Herd… Cowherd will serve as a producer on the project.
