    He was found, and who was found is probably in a very bad place.

    Pearlman probably discovered Brooks was a Republican.

    Don't tease your story like that, tweet about it, get anticipation up. ... and then respond to that query with, "Can't help. Nothing personal."

    Brooks must not have taken the 7 train next to some queer with AIDS.

    Not his usual personable self.

    Or he was really Will Clark
    "Jeff Pearlman! Jeff fucking Pearlman!" Clark's voice grew increasingly loud — the famous, cat-choking-on-a-lugnut Will the Thrill cackle in full bloom.

    "Uh, yup."

    "Jeff fucking Pearlman! Now why the fuck would anyone in here want to talk to you? Why the fuck would we wanna talk to you, after what you did to (John) Rocker? Why?"

    Careful folks, Pearlman used to respond with indignant DMs any time his name was mentioned on here.

    I've heard that too. He's apparently a real red ass. Can dish out but can't take it.

    Also heard from a friend that he came on here once using the name Biff and posted on a thread about Pearlman. Someone called him on it and he had to admit that Biff was really himself.

    The best thing about that story is that Biff posted asking what Jeff 'Perlman' had been up to lately...

    ... Spelling his own name wrong to throw people off the trail.

    I believe he's had a few different aliases over the years and has also posted under his own name.

    Thanks for checking in, Jeff.

    Is there a link to the "Biff" thread?

    What I love about it is that it reminds me of Trump pretending to be his own publicist. And, of course, Pearlman hates Trump so much.

    Some writers are lousy reporters. But you love reading them.
    Pearlman is a good reporter. His writing style is horrid, though.
