Vic ‘The Brick’ Jacobs Fans Are Feeling Blue*

The Web page for Fox Sports Radio LA’s weekday national program Loose Cannons now lists only Pat O’Brien and Steve Hartman. That’s because as of this week, third wheel Vic “The Brick” Jacobs has been moved off the show in favor of spot news and Lakers coverage duties.

Allaccess.com is the first to confirm the news. Given VBJ’s loyal fan base, there will likely be more article and Facebook comments like these:

Jerry: I think they did push him out… Pat’s shtick of being impatient with Vic every day was Pat’s true feelings about Vic.

rusticgroovy: It’s only been a couple of days and I really miss Vic. I love Pat (& tolerate Steve) but the Loose Cannons are not the same. Missing you, Vic!

The Thoroughly Post-Modern Pat O’Brien


With the list of fallen sports heroes growing longer by the day, former co-host of The Insider Pat O’Brien has plenty of opportunities on his daily Fox Sports Radio show “Loose Cannons” to reference his infamous 2005 phone sex scandal. Still, his willingness to do so on a regular basis without a hint of embarrassment is both a testament to his Dr. Phil-aided rehabilitation and the odd transparency of the 21st century media horizon.

On today’s edition of the program, a discussion with Steve Hartman and Vic “The Brick” Jacobs quickly segued from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and a New York Knicks executive (Anuscha Browne Sanders) who won an $11.6 million sexual harassment judgment against the team in 2007 to current Brett Favre problem Jen Sterger, a TV reporter who may have received X-rated communications from the one-time Jet quarterback in 2008.
