NFL legend and former Denver Broncos tight end turned host of sports talk show, Skip AND Shannon: UNDISPUTED turned a dispute about his team's record (Denver Broncos) into a hilarious TV moment and the next internet MEME.
Shannon Sharpe Says His Victory Cigar Of Choice Is A BLACK & MILD With Cognac
Shannon Sharpe proudly touted his team's successful results on the field by rubbing his victory in Skip Bayless' face. Shannon then whipped out a Black 'N Mild Cigar and put it to his lips in an iconic moment in sports talk television, adamantly proclaiming:
"If your team won you can enjoy me with a victory cigar... I BE ON DEM MILDS!!!... I BE ON DEM MILDS WITH THAT YAC HARD YESTERDAY SKIP!"

UNDISPUTED vs FIRST TAKE
Shannon Sharpe's often unintentional comedy keeps UNDISPUTED lively and humorous in a way that's like talking to your boisterous uncle at a cookout about sports, giving UNDISPUTED a genuine element of comedy, something that's missing from their competition's (First Take) show.
Co-host Skip Bayless defected from ESPN's First Take over to Fox Sports' FS1 last year to team with Shannon Sharpe on UNDISPUTED. On August 28th ESPN PR sent out a press release highlighting First Takes' ratings over UNDISPUTED's claiming 404,000 viewers from July 31st to August 25, 2017 vs UNDISPUTED's 129,000 viewers. All things considered both shows contain loudmouth hosts (Stephen A. Smith on First Take, Shannon Sharpe on UNDISPUTED) and the semi-rational host (Max Kellerman on First Take, Skip Bayless on UNDISPUTED) and a female moderator. However Shannon Sharpe's personality, humor and genuine bias gives UNDISPUTED an edge over First Take in entertainment value.
