I must be losing my mind today (Matt Sanchez?), because I think I just saw Jon Barry play one-on-one against a hologram of Kobe Bryant on SportsCenter ... and lose.

This is probably not the first time this has happened and I'm sure it won't be the last, I just want you to keep in mind that Jon Barry is playing defense against no one. At least the whole horrible fake press conferences and court arguments that they do on NFL Live involve real people. (Yes, Trey Wingo counts as a person.) Also, his advice—make him go to his weak hand and put a hand in his face—is not that helpful. Did I need a computer simulation to repeat the teachings of my seventh-grade basketball coach?

Why not make a Fake Jon Barry, put him in the EA game and watch Fake Kobe light him up for 250 points or something? Now that's something we could all learn from.
