Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

We didn't actually notice what was going on at first; we were at the gym, and we made it back to our desk, there were countless emails: You have to check out what's happening on Simmons' column page. The one-time experiment with Simmons' "conversation" — he hasn't had comments on a column since then, though the rest of Page 2 has caved — turned into an explosion, a storming of the gates the likes of which we hadn't seen.


We never thought the whole uprising thing has anything to do with Simmons himself, and, in fact, we always felt a little bad about some of the comments about the Sports Gal, among other things. It was about a company not really understanding how the Web works, and watching people rush the castle and let the royal court know what they thought. It was immature and ribald and chaotic. But, most important: It was hilarious. It just felt good, you know?

But is it a Hall of Famer? Seventy five percent is the threshold for induction. Vote below: Polls will be open until next Monday morning.
