    This column made me want to gouge out my eyes after reading. OK, of course the column wasn't that bad...neither is being a sports reporter.

    Eh, I don't mind it. I know Wally's a tough, old-time, trooper kind of guy. Nice to see something different, even if very few will appreciate it.

    "Then why don't you quit and find something else to do?"

    "Oh, no, I love my job. I wouldn't trade it for anything."

    The column doesn't tell US anything new, but I thought it describes the process well enough.

    If he got 25 e-mails, I'll bet 23 of 'em said, "You have the best job in the world. Quit whining."

    Wally's written far, far worse columns, trust me.

    And he does it regularly.
