Can someone post Rick Reilly's latest column from Sports Illustrated...

    Rick Reilly often comes off as having a certain "rare-air" intrigue about himself.
    He seems, at times, (in print anyway .. I've never met him personally) to regard himself as a elitest, upper echelon writer.
    When he uses God and Joseph in conversational writing, as he's done here, it adds to my thoughts that he sort of takes himself a bit too seriously.
    Whitlock is more of an everyman's man, comapred to Reilly.
    But I didn't totally not enjoy Reilly's piece. It had its moments and I read it to the end.

    An old joke, but still funny.

    Reilly wrote a nice piece. It wasn't HATEFUL!

    Whitlock was looking for vindication - he didn't get it.

    Reilly appeared to have enjoyed himself. That's a good thing. I enjoy writers that "appear" to enjoy their work.

    Reilly is an incredible talent, but he's definitely been phoning it in for awhile...

    I've known Reilly for years, he's not an elitist. He has an ego, but it's not on the level of some of the guys in this business...
