    This piece, by Charles P. Pierce on Tiger Woods, would rank among my 10 favorite profiles ever.

    I thought Simmons and Pierce hated each other?

    Pierce has been writing regularly for Grantland since it began. This ran with the oral history of The National when the site launched. http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6626434/my-memories-national

    Interesting. I was under the impression that they didn't like each other very much. Something about a "red-hot career."

    Money talks, I guess. Even for the militant anti-capitalist.

    Did you just call Charlie Pierce a whore?

    The fact he wrote that in 2-and-a-half hours kinda makes me want to quit writing forever.

    Pierce is a "militant anti-capitalist?"

    Worse. He insinuated Pierce is, in fact, a capitalist.

    Charles P. Pierce didn't join Grantland until about five months after it's launch. The essay about The National was a freelance assignment.

    Ah good memory. He started in November, after that first piece. I remember being surprised he wrote that first one.

    Is that a promotion or demotion from piano player?

    I'm just saying it's an interesting choice of masters for a rock-ribbed man of principle like Charles P. Pierce.
