Some of you out there might like Bob Costas. Some of you might not. We've always been partial to the guy, not just because he's a St. Louis guy, and not just because he did the intro to the final episode of "Cheers," though that certainly helps. Costas is an obviously intelligent guy, if a bit smuggish from time to time, and we never took him for a Bill Conlin, or a Sam Smith, or a Jay Mariotti. The guy's worldly enough to recognize that fans having more of a voice and more media options is a good thing, right? He's certainly not the type of guy who would use that old, so-tired-it's-almost-awake-again trope of the "blogger in his parents' basement" thing, right? Right? Nope.
