NEW YORK—In an effort to clear up the confusion caused by terminology such as "unconsistentical" and "splosiverance," CBS producers made a formal request Monday that NFL Today commentator Shannon Sharpe use a minimum of three real words in each sentence. "We tried to convey to Mr. Sharpe that peppering in a few words that actually exist will help viewers understand what he's talking about," executive producer Sean McManus said. "Providing fans with some context is key for Shannon. It is much easier to comprehend what he means when he says, 'Andre Johnson needimentally must keep advantagizing opportunimals this week.'" Sharpe has yet to make any intelligible comment on the situation

Shannon is one funny dude.

His made up words work better than what you find in the New Oxford Dictionary.

I love Sharpe's delivery. He's just got the perfect combo of accent, sense of humor and enthusiasm to crack me up.

I dunno, I thought he'd be a better studio guy than he actually is.
