It’s draft day today, and you may have noticed that former Fullbright distinguished fellow Gregggggggg Easterbrook has yet to issue his annual “mock” mock draft, in which he has teams drafting all sorts of whimsical fictional characters and public figures. The Ravens drafting Hillary Clinton because she excels at…
For today's Buffalo News, columnist Greg Connors did a neat thing, asking a bunch of sports media people—some local, some national—to name their favorite sports books. They listed some really good titles, and it's fun to see what writers like Bryan Curtis, Will Leitch, and Josh Levin came up with. You should go check…

If you've hung out around this site in the past, you know that we consider ESPN fartsniffer Gregg Easterbrook to be a haughty dipshit.

We're not even sure what to say about Gregg Easterbrook's newest column. The man has clearly lost it; we're actually a little worried about him. [ESPN]
This was so inevitable that we can't believe it took them so long: The gang at Kissing Suzy Kolber have finally gotten around to mocking Gregg Easterbrook. Some comedic highlights:
It has been two-and-a-half years since famed New Republic writer Gregg Easterbook and his "Tuesday Morning Quarterback" column were fired from ESPN for supposedly anti-Semitic sentiments in a piece he wrote for TNR.
