    He's GOT to be in on the joke by now, right?

    I mean, POSTING your graduation speech? isn't that the height of egoism?

    For the past 19 years, I've written about the NFL for Sports Illustrated, the largest sports magazine in the world. For the last 11, I've written a column for SI.com, Monday Morning Quarterback, that 2 million people click on, usually when they want to play hooky from work or school. I talk to millions Sunday nights during the fall on NBC.

    I'm sorry, but if I'm in the crowd, listening to this as a grad, I start yelling "IN CASE YOU HADN'T NOTICED, THIS IS OUR DAY!"

    # 2 is a gem in his 10 Things I think for 2008 OU Grads:

    2. I think entitlement lasts about a week out in the world. After that, no one cares who you are. They care what you can do.

    I graduated with a 3.3 grade-point, surviving more than flourishing academically.

    Pete "struggled" graduating with honors - wonder what the kids sitting there with the 2.5 's thought.

    Obviously PK was impressed by his 3.3 or he would not have mentioned it. Surprised that he did not add his current W-2 income for good measure.

    Can you imagine the rough draft of that speech?

    I never paid much attention to PK.

    Read a few of his Monday Morning shticks but quite honestly, thought the venom directed at him from SportsJournalists.com was motivated by pure jealousy.

    After reading his latest piece, I've changed my mind: the guy is an attention whore dickhead.
