bunch of idiots
I don't get it. Is this the low that sportswriters have sunk to? Granted, we really don't want any "what tree are you" questions, but to fill your column by making fun of the opposing team's city, well that's just bad journalism.
Note to Will Bunch: Maybe if you could write a column like this that came off as good-naturedly humurous instead of sounding very much like a snickering jock who spits when he talks, it would work. But it's not cutting it, babe. I'm just not feeling it.
Your piece didn't elicit a single chuckle, guffaw or heheh from these lips. Not even a small smirk. It just seemed petty and juvenile. And not juvenile in a Space Ghost sort of way, but juvenile in a "grow the hell up" way.
Next time you want to fill space in the days leading up to the game, you would do just as well to draw a crayon picture of the opposing team's mayor and write doody-head next to it. But that may take more talent than you actually have.
