Where Does Phil Mushnick's Wordbarf Rank Among Awful Sports Columns?

Phil Mushnick's "Adrian Peterson is a thug and at fault for his son's death" column is bad. Really bad. But is it worse than the reigning champion of instantly appalling sports columns, Mark Whicker's "Here's what Jaycee Dugard missed in sports while she was imprisoned and raped in a backyard shed for 18 years" » 10/14/13 4:17pm 10/14/13 4:17pm

Joba Chamberlain's Freak Trampoline Accident Is Just Like Brien Taylor…

All the pieces fit, don't they? Strangely spelled first names, injured pitchers...actually, that's about it. Don't let that stop you though, Bill Madden. According to Madden, Chamberlain had a "death wish for his career." So, it makes all the sense in the world that he finally pulled it off at some glorified romper… » 3/24/12 11:30am 3/24/12 11:30am

Djokovic-Federer Had Nothing On Christ-Satan, Says Writer Who Is Not…

(Colossians 2:15) Memo to Satan: Get over it.… » 9/22/11 10:41am 9/22/11 10:41am

Why Yes, One Cleveland Writer Did Offer Up A Nazi Death-Camp Gas For…

And it was Scott Raab (yesterday). Oh, don't get all "How dare you belittle millions of deaths for a joke the morally depraved community doesn't even so much as giggle at?" He apologized 13 hours later, while nobly driving page views to a story he wrote last year about retired U.S. autoworker/convicted Nazi… » 5/18/11 10:30pm 5/18/11 10:30pm

Alabama Football Player Found Dead; ESPN Insider Has The Story On Which…

The University of Alabama has confirmed that Aaron Douglas, an offensive lineman, was found dead in Florida this morning. There are no more details regarding the nature of his death, but ESPN Insider's Albert Lin is ahead of the news in some awful way: earlier this afternoon, the "Rumor Central" writer published a… » 5/12/11 4:15pm 5/12/11 4:15pm

Comatose Giants Fan Shouldn't Have Been Wearing A Giants Jersey, Writes…

Bryan Stow is the 42-year-old Giants fan who was beaten outside Dodger Stadium and who now lies in a medically induced coma. Stow was wearing a Giants jersey at the time of the attack. I'll let John Steigerwald, a columnist for the Observer-Reporter in Washington, Pa., and a former television anchor, take it from here. » 4/12/11 4:29pm 4/12/11 4:29pm
