    My lone Sid experience involves being referrred to as "little girl" by him throughout my time seated next to him in the pressbox as a 22-year-old reporter. That kind of high fuckery is pretty much par with him.

    The way it sounds, Sid was doing his post-game interview for the UM radio network. Not that it justifies a damn thing, mind you.

    Sid's radio interviews are painful in the extreme. Really, UM broadcasts are pretty painful all the way around.

    They should have cast him in Airplane for the part where the dude says, "They bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into, I say, let 'em crash!" Would fit him nicely.

    It was like watching a UFO... you know you're seeing something that shouldn't be there, but you're not quite sure what you saw.
    Was my firsttime covering a game at the Metrodome, so I wasnt sure what to do... the Minnesota guys did nothing
    It was over and done within two minutes of an afternoon game, so it wasnt but up against deadline, so it wasnt as crucial... more like let the old fuck go so we can get work done.

    While the ego-heavy head is right proportionally, where's the brown nose and lips in permanent pucker....

    And the ever-present scowl?

    moddy, from what i understand, sid owned some of the land bought by the city for the metrodome. the star tribune, then independently owned, also got in on that deal thanks to sid. it's all very shady and no one seems to be able to explain all the details. fwiw, he's rumored to be worth in the $40-50 million range.

    Say WHAT?
    He's got all that fucking green, why's he still working?

    I guarn-an-fucking-tee you this, my coffers ever show $40 mil and I've covered my last game.

    But Moddy, what's $40 mil if you lose all of your close, personal friends and legions of adoring fans?

    Never heard of Sid. Doesn't appear I will go out of my way to do so, either.
