Another ESPN joke

    Followed a Tweeted link about an ESPN story by Joe Schad about the Florida State-ACC-Big 12 situation.

    Schad's story starts: "Florida State president Dr. Eric Barron has written a memo obtained by ESPN ..."

    Really? REALLY? This memo was posted all over the Internet Monday. So, I guess ESPN "obtained" it. I realize that this is SOP for the WWL but eff 'em.

    Well, he's not wrong. And on the list of ESPN's transgressions, I'm not even sure this makes the top 1,000.

    Probably not top 100,000.

    Now here's a transgression worth being pissed about:

    Here's where Deadspin loses me, consistently. Here's what Petchesky wrote:

    Yet the headline openly calls it an ESPN.com column.

    I don't read ESPN.com, and I sure as shit don't read about the NBA. It may be by degrees, but if it's an ESPN.com column, then you don't need the hemming and hawing below. And if you need the hemming and hawing, then maybe your headline shouldn't be so cut and dried.

    Yankee-centric coverage?

    Seems to me like a wrong headline got put on the wrong story. Chalk it up to just another stupid thing that can happen on the Interwebs...

    It was probably just a silly mistake, but there are a lot of Yankee fans disguised as ESPN talent.

    I'll bet there are a lot more Red Sox fans.

    Then there are those just discovering they play sports east of the Mississippi in places not called Los Angeles.
