Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

In sports, everyone is a winner-some peopleinstitutions just win better than others. Like GQ's story on the Marvin Harrison case, which renewed some faith in the flailing Fourth Estate. Prompted by the story, the FBI is taking another look.

Of course, GQ's story is overlooked by ESPN, which shamelessly trumpeted their own (very good) but less intensive Harrison story published last January instead:

As ESPN The Magazine reported last January, a second witness, Robert Nixon, also told police that he saw Harrison fire a gun. Nixon, who was wounded in the back by stray gunfire, filed a civil suit against Harrison last July, claiming that the ex-wide receiver "continued shooting at the other person ... as [he] drove past plaintiff. In doing so, a bullet from defendant's handgun struck plaintiff in the back with great force and violence."


I mean...COME ON.

Honorable mention: Jimmy Kimmel, who appeared on Jay Leno's "10@10" segment and basically whipped out his penis and brazenly whacked Leno in the face with it.
