Don't drink and twitter

    I'd say never twitter about your personal life at all, ever, unless you're the president or you have just cured cancer. But some narcissists just can't help it:

    There's no word yet on whether Mike Bacsik, the guy who once coughed up Barry Bonds' record breaking home run and who now works as a producer and host at Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket in Dallas, will be fired for a litany of racist, violent and drunken NBA-related tweets from Sunday night, but at this point it's probably only a matter of time.

    "I wonder how big Stern's cornhole is?"

    Well, who HASN'T wondered that?

    Apparently if he gets cancer, he's also going to blow everyone in the NBA offices.

    I'm glad I just drink and use glitter.

    He'll just end up as Galloway's producer.

    Bacsik's theme song is "Groovin"

    He served one up to Bonds, figuring that moment of glory would last him longer than his very mediocre and brief major-league career. Then he got all offended when such suggestions were made.
    At one point, the background picture on his Twitter page was the postgame press conference with huge 756s visible everywhere.

    Sure, Mike. Sure. Now go away.

    Maybe John Rocker has a pirate radio station... and maybe that station is looking for a producer

    Does anyone else see the irony of a sports blogger trashing the entire medium of sports talk radio? It's as dumb as those who rip sports bloggers. Both the blog & the radio are media, they aren't inherently good or bad. Both have a lot of garbage, that obscures the few who do really good work.

    I find Guy_Incognito's comment unusually insightful for a message-board poster.

    Guy, you could have pretty accurately predicted unsophisticated, broad-brush fratboy snark based on the link.
