Not since Ali unmasked Foreman in Zaire...Telander knocks out Mariotti

    Morrisey was just a smokescreen. This "hit" was a total inside job from the start.

    The greatest rope-a-dope since Ali-Foreman.

    From Telander's column:
    "Nothing's imminent,'' said Williams, alone in his all-black outfit on the field before Sunday's game against the Astros.
    Think he threw in that bit of observational journalism to prove he was actually at the game and to gig Mariotti?
    Yeah, me too.

    The guy has been called a pussy for not going to the clubhouse...
    Daddy goes to bat for him while none of his cohorts or campadries are...

    What if instead of the "F" word, Guillen had called him "Fairyotti?" Would that have been as bad? (Funnier for sure)

    Firefighters from six communities raced to the home of Chicago SunTimes columnist Jay Mariotti, after he burst into flames while reading his own newspaper this morning....

    (Hats off to Rick T...wish we could all hear the voice mail he's going to get this morning.)

    Even the GM ad seems to be calling out Mariotti.

    Reason No. 1,798 why I love Rick Telander. (In a totally platonic way, y'know.)

    From "Mariotti's latest ... wow":
    And while Mariotti cinches the noose, Telander kicks him off the stage and lets his coworker dangle there, kicking his legs, gasping for breath ...

    Perhaps I need to run to the gumball machine and get the new decoder ring.

    I'm not seeing a walloping of Mariotti there.... just a bunch of questions posed.

    I'm disappointed in Telander for not stating an opinion of who's right and wrong re: the "showing up in the clubhouse" issue.
