Oh man, the old guard journalists really fucking hate blogs.  The Bob Costas show tonight was very interesting.  What a bunch of fucking pussies.

YouTube clips or it didn't happen.

Perhaps thanks to my exposure to sports here, I had a dream last night that I watched a Bulls game on TV. It wasn't a good game. It wasn't a bad game. There were no monsters. Just me, a couch, a TV, and an average basketball game.

Since I'm betting most of us didn't see it, you should give a synopsis or link... or some god damn piece information to explain what the fuck you're talking about it! The Internet, use it!

No, but its sad.  Bissinger, who is just the type of bullshit sports writer that FJM feasts on, was insane with anger.  He screamed and threw a tantrum on live television.  It was pathetic.

I'd love to see that, just for the humor. The old guard is definitely, and rightly should be, intimidated by blogs and the internet in general. I get the impression they see it as a bunch of amateurs trying to do what they do... Where as in reality it, at least a couple of the bloggers do it better than anything the professionals do.

Oh, speaking of the sports, why does Phoenix keep rocking it in the regular season and keep losing in the play offs...are they just that team?

Well that's pretty obvious...but you'd think at some point you'd figure out how to beat the team that CONSTANTLY knocks you out of the playoffs. And no, last minute trades don't count. It sucks too, because I really like watching the Suns play...

Considering 1991 is the last time Hawthorne finished first in Premiereships, sure it is.

And ask a Cubs fan how current seven years ago is.

There was talk on the radio that Sidney Crosby is diving. If I was a player I'd really hit him, take a double minor or whatever, but make sure he got his money worth on a real hit.

Nobody in the NHL flops the way they do in the NBA, except maybe idiots like Avery and Ruttu.  When people complain about someone like Crosby or Forsberg "diving" they mean that they don't fight hard enough to stay on their feet while being hooked, held and slashed.

Witnesses in the house heard Jones say "why did you pee on me Pooh Bear?" A few moments later, the witness heard the son say "Mama you done stabbed me."

Hawthorn FC was founded 106 years ago. The Diamondbacks were created out of nothing ten years ago. There is hardly a resemblance.

1. Then again, the state's not even 100 years old. Then again, you talk about the Diamondbacks being 10 years old? In that, they have 4 division titles, 1 NL title, a World Series, and currently have the best record in baseball. I'd take that.

The demise of the Suns was inevitable once they fired Colangelo.  Their window closed last year, which is too bad because I really wanted Nash to get a ring.

It's the new owner being cheap. That's why D'Antoni might return- he won't want to pay the rest of the salary.

An actual good sports story.

Holtman and shortstop Liz Wallace lifted Tucholsky off the ground and supported her weight between them as they began a slow trip around the bases, stopping at each one so Tucholsky's left foot could secure her passage onward. Even with Tucholsky feeling the pain of what trainers subsequently came to believe was a torn ACL (she was scheduled for tests to confirm the injury on Monday), the surreal quality of perhaps the longest and most crowded home run trot in the game's history hit all three players.


Leave it up to girls to play the right way.

From the GTA4 and GTA4 only thread:
One of the Fire Joe Morgan guys is a writer for The Office, and my suspicions that all the writers are Harvard buddies was confirmed by Bob Costas on HBO tonight.

Yeah, they "came out" a while back. Important point, it's not just "a writer from The Office", it's the guy who plays Moss Schrute on The Office. That simply takes the bizarre to another level.

The video evidence. It's sad, because while he may be a "bullshit sports writer" (though I don't ever remember FJM ever going after novelists), he was a good one. You can tell he's had that brewing forever, and him and Costas were well prepared for that ambushing.

FJM has used this occasion to point out problems with Bissinger's writing.

I read his book "3 Nights in August" and its pretty hefty with garbage to make a Moneyballer turn over in their grave.
