So...conflicted...

Is Bill Simmons trying to get back on my good side or is he just trying to f with me? First he blasts Cal Ripken for no good reason, then he asserts that anyone that doesn't vote for McGwire into the Hall of Fame is a crackpot...so just when I thought I couldn't loathe this guy any worse (remember he already has 2 3/4 strikes against him off the bat because he is a Red Sox fan) he goes and writes a column in which he showers college football with love AND, more importantly, links to a story penned by my brother-in-law (its in the box to the right of the column, #3 under the title "Listen Up") for the Washington Post and saying it will restore your faith in sports journalism. I'm going to have to climb a Himalayan moutaintop and meditate about this whole Bill Simmons thing...I'm so torn...wait....no I'm not...he trashed Ripken AND he's a Red Sox fan...that's unforgiveable.

The college football story was awful - it was written like he had just discovered this brand new thing and had to tell everybody about it. F him.

If this is how you Orioles fans think baseball works, then I can now more clearly understand why you've been toiling at the bottom of the A.L. East for the past 15 years.

Alas we do toil in the netherland of AL East purgatory...we are not perched upon a throne of blood money like the YankSox or Redkees or whatever that soul-sucking Voltron created by Boston and New York is called.
