Rick Reilly Didn't Always Suck

Rick Reilly published the last column of his career on ESPN.com today. It's not very good, as is the case with most of the stuff he's written since becoming a self-plagiarizing boob.

Danny Amendola Draws Ire Of Insufferable Boston Media

Boston sports media sucks, and a good way to make it worse is to toss it some mildly controversial chum while the boredom of the NFL offseason has it itching for something to be shitty and annoying about.

Murray Chass, a once-great baseball reporter turned bitter crank, recently revealed his 2013 Hall of Fame ballot in a blog post in which he proudly stated that he did not vote for Craig Biggio or Mike Piazza because he believes that they used steroids.

The Redskins' Incompetent PR Guy Is Also A Giant Cry Baby

We've met Tony Wyllie—the Washington Redskins' deeply stupid, duplicitous shitbag of a PR flack—around these parts before.

Clipper fans, here is a sobering reminder that despite the fact that your team is better than it has ever been and is poised to supplant the Lakers as the toast of L.A., you are still rooting for a franchise that is owned by a racist shitbag who will always be this close to ruining everything. » 10/29/13 10:20am 10/29/13 10:20am

Has Any Coach Ever Done Less With More Than Lane Kiffin?

Watch enough football for long enough, and eventually you'll see everything. I believe this: In this calendar year alone we've seen a one-point safety, a Heisman finalist cop to having an imaginary girlfriend, and a 300-pound left tackle score on a hook-and-lateral, among other improbable feats.
