He picked a fight with Charlie Pierce. He started Grantland. He scooped up our pal Katie Baker. He shamelessly hopped on the Bruins bandwagon. He told ESPN to go fuck itself. He expressed regrets about Grantland before it even launched. He almost poached the guy who's now running our little corner of the Internet. He hired Charlie Pierce. And he's been writing long pieces stuffed with references to Boston sports and movies for far longer than we thought.
