Woody Paige Speaker Profile
Woody Paige Biography
Woody Paige was born June 27, 1946 and is a sports columnist for The Denver Post, author and a regular panelist on the ESPN sports-talk program Around the Horn. He was also a co-host of Cold Pizza and its spin-off show 1st and 10 until November 4, 2006, when it was announced that Paige would return to the Post. Paige is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee and is a Baseball Hall of Fame voter.
As a panelist on Around The Horn, Paige is well known for his goofy opening jokes, including a blackboard behind him on which he writes intentionally silly comments. He had a bantering relationship and friendly rivalry with Jay Mariotti. The two have appeared in and won the most episodes of Around The Horn. Paige has won the most consecutive shows (five) as well as 404 wins as of April 6, 2012. For April Fool's Day 2009, the show began with Paige pretending to subdue Reali with fake chloroform and taking over as host as the show, with Reali taking his place as a panelist. He proceeded to award and deduct points erratically, and at the end of the first cut announced that the panelist with the most points would be cut. The showdown ended up being with Reali and Mariotti, and Woody surprisingly awarding the win to Mariotti after the two ended with -3 points in the showdown. However, Woody quickly muted Mariotti's face time speech and proceeded to talk to himself.
On September 8, 2009, Paige won his 300th show, becoming the first panelist to reach 300 victories.
For Halloween 2009, Paige dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West, and won the show. After his face time, he slouched out of his chair (and out of view of the camera) while announcing that he was melting!
On January 9, 2012, Woody scored 71 points which is the most points for any panelist to date.
On February 8, 2012, Woody became the first to reach 400 wins, the most of any panelist. His win total stands at 412 in 1836 appearances as of July 25, 2012.
