I can't take it anymore

    I'm sorry, but I read the following and I'm mad:


    I'm probably in the minority herem but I like ESPN.com and I like Page 2. But as a journalist, Scoop Jackson's columns make me incredibly angry. It's not an issue of race or sport topics, but me-me-me-me. I've never seen someone write more about himself and how interesting he is.

    Plus, can one be a fan and a writer? I mean, the way he worships Michael Jordan here is ludicrous. Wow! A keychain with his fingerprint! To me, that's more pathetic than anything else. Who the f^%$ puts his own fingerprint on a keychain? And who, over the age of 15, wants one?

    I can go on and on. I'm at a loss, pulling my hair out. There are tons of journalists—real reporters who dig into stories—who would cherish the opportunity to have a job at ESPN.com.

    Umm, don't read him if he bothers you. That's what most of us do.

    Scoop what now? The dog did what on the lawn?

    Scoop sucks. That really was a waste of three minutes.

    And at the risk of sounding ignorant: What the fuck is "dap"?

    Thank you, ma'am. I thought it was a high five.

    Now I miss "Win Ben Stein's Money."

    Son of a bitch. ...

    God, I haven't given a thought to Scoop in three months before opening this thread. I won't click on that link because I really don't give a shit what he has to say.

    If that's not the sign of a bad columnist, I don't know what is.

    That was about the biggest piece of crap I've ever read.

    Who the fuck would click on that idiot?

    Is he settling that age-old debate again about who's better, college football or tennis?

    Or is he breaking down the numbers on how statistically, it's easier to play in the NBA than be a black sportswriter?
