In the name of our Lord and Savior . . . can I have your autograph?

    Two journalists ask Tebow for his signature in locker room. He obliges.

    What a rookie move.

    I bring my kids to the locker room so that they can get autographs for me.

    Good on the PR people for booting the hacks out of the locker room.

    Any IDs on these clowns other than a Cincy reporter and a photog? Were they real media members or assclowns from some fanboi web sites?

    Come now, spnited.

    Don't you know in today's ever-changing world that such sites are part of the new landscape and so vitally important to helping thoroughly enrich the experience for fans while giving them a delightful chance to engage in the conversation?

    Forgive me, six-toe. Whatever was I thinking to disparage fanboi websites.

    Piotr beat me to it, in other news

    A radio reporter was fired in Arkansas for wearing a Florida Gators hat to a practice session. She claims it was was rainy and she just needed a hat.

    Local paper wrote it up and called it a breach in "professional etiquette."

    What if they were from the Ocho Cinco News Network?

    Some fanboi web site reporters are better than newspaper reporters in the same way that some newspaper reporters. Yes, there are a lot of bad reporters and fan boi's representing blogs out there but to lump them all together is ignorant.

    That seems way out of line unless they would have fired her for wearing an Arkansas hat as well.

    In SEC country, you're almost required to wear the home team's gear if you're in radio or TV.

    And it seems the wacky Arkansas fans were the ones who got her canned.


    See, nothing good can come from message boards!

    There are few things more pathetic than a grown man - journalist or not - asking another grown man for his autograph.
