    Nice research, DD. Shows just how short a shelf life the pop-culture references have.

    That's what we thought.

    I know I've said this a bajillion times, but pop culture references, particularly when employed as metaphors and analogies, are as hacky as the French dude in Slapshot.

    I tend to agree, Jonesy, but coming from one of the best writers going today, that statement carries a lot of weight.

    Even Murrow had to chat with "Lee" Liberace in order to get to McCarthy.

    *Disclaimer: In no way am I comparing Silver with Murrow. After seeing those glasses, I might go for a comparison with Liberace, though. :D

    So maybe we should cancel all English courses at colleges, as well? I mean, who are we to critique F. Scott Fitzgerald?

    pringle, you're the buffoon for even comparing michael silver to one of the greatest american writers of the twentieth century.

    He's writing for ESPN? I thought he was at SI?

    Hey, Mike:

    Thanks for reading SportsJournalists.com.


    And your writing at SI is as forgettable as a Best of Hanson album. It's awkward the first time you hear it and doesn't get any better with repetitions.

    (See, I can use dated pop culture references, too! I even spell-checked my post! Wee!)
